I have been around long enough to know never to trust the economy, one day all is going well, next month all crashes (like in 2008) thats why I have always kept a few thousand in the bank just in case of any financial interruption. Unfortunately we have a few million people in our country who abused their credit lines, having a field day at best buy/new cars, etc,and at any given time had 1 or 2 months supply cash in the bank. And now a lot of them are protesting on wall street, and others Blame Bush! Hey, did Bush tell anyone to buy a $250,000 home with their $35,000 a year salary?

Two of those people started businesses.

I wonder if they had any small business loans.
I start businesses and can tell you that practically no one is giving small business loans. I've got no debt, hundreds of thousands in the bank, a personal credit score of over 800, a home that I own outright, 20 years experience in my industry, 16 of which were with the same Fortune 100. I'm an ideal risk for a business loan but all banks turned me down, even for a loan as little as $50k. Every other entrepreneur I know tells the same story.

Oh, is this that bullshit started by Erick Erickson of RedState?


Here's Jon Stewart on this idea:



“Of course they [the other "47%"] do most likely pay payroll taxes, state, local, sales and excise taxes, but the important thing is knowing that doesn’t make you as mad, doesn’t it?”

good to know you've kept your streak of not having an original thought intact.

kudos
