Job Creators

Republicans talk all the time about job creators, about how we should bow down to them.

I say, If they are really job creators then it should be no problem for them to just go out and create job.

The government says we need more jobs; the job creators just create more jobs. Then we are told that is not the way it works. So I guess what they are saying that they are not really job creators.

Funny ………… we are told one thing by republicans but in reality that is not the truth………..

1. Oddly, many of the jobs being created here are by foreign-owned companies.

 

US companies aren't being a lot of help in the job creation category.

2. You and I are the real job creators.

Jobs are only created when there is a market for anything. It's called demand and supply. The only other form of job creation is Governmental,meaning stimulus via building out Infrastructure. Remember,pay checks from these types of jobs turn at least seven times on Main Street. And they produce associated local and state revenue after completion. Were as spending on Military is a pure money pit. The product produced has a cost related fee only to the Manufacturer and the then it is of a salvageable or junk value,usually scrap.

4. And if you and I do not have the

disposable income,screw it. Don't know about your area,but here we are seeing fees and taxes increasing on a monthly basis,and the big one is food and clothing price increases. As a rule,food and clothing price increases take place after labor day,not this year,noticed the big price increases started in June and another hit after the fourth. And they say there is zero inflation.

5. Belief: It's When Others Do the Thinking FOR You.





What's utterly hilarious about the "job creator" myth is that while people are still buying this bullshit, little do they know (naturally, because their purchased media will never tell YOU) is that the canard was quite literally put to the test in 2004, when BeWsh enacted the Homestead Investment Act of 2004; which, hilariously enough, was part of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004. Corporate America, specifically a failed presidential candidate in 2016, failed quite miserably to create any jobs. In fact, LAYOFFS were the result more often than not:

The purported aim of the legislation was to generate economic growth and therefore jobs at home by according corporations a one year “tax holiday” on billions in overseas profits they had stashed offshore.

The result was a $265 billion corporate giveaway.

The windfall was supposed to go toward research and development, and other job-creating endeavors.

Instead, almost all of it was put into stock buybacks as a way of funneling cash to stockholders, these prominently including CEOs.

Never mind that the bill prohibited such buybacks.

Hewlett-Packard saved more than $4.3 billion and put more than $4 billion into stock buybacks. It laid off 14,500 workers.

To make it all even uglier, Hewlett-Packard lobbied for the Homeland Investment Act as a member of something called the Homeland Investment Coalition—this at a time when the “war on terror” was intensifying and the word “Homeland” made everyone think of national security.
