    All of you that whine about "trickle down" economics explain to me how "trickle up" works. Show me one job created by a homeless person... one job created by a welfare mother.......OOPS what do you mean that doesn't work. This potus hasn't even had ONE job in his life. How can you create something you don't even know what it is. This bunch will lie when the truth sounds better. I was in business for 12 years and made a good living for me and my workers. Don't remember EVER having anyone give me anything,......I earned it by hard work and having the FREEDOM to make my OWN decisions about who, and where I worked

    I think he had a law practice before politics. Might not be a manual labor job, but it is still a job I think. Probably employed office staff and such. Somebody fact check it for me though please. LOL

    Community Organizer is the closest he has ever been to work - his lawyer privilege is suspended & I do not think he ever practiced other than to run for the next office

    According to Wikipedia, he worked at a law firm as an associate.

    Here's the point of me starting this thread. Last night the San Antonio mayor went on about how trickle down doesn't work. I hear that from dims all the time yet they are the first to jump in and say we need more stimulus/bailouts/whatever. To me the only difference is who decides which businesses get the money on top to trickle it down. Either the market dictates which businesses are successful and have that money or the government decides. Solyndra tells me pretty quick that the government isn't any good at it.
    "The thing I admire about the rat tail is that it takes commitment. It's not like one day you just decide you want one, you have to grow out that bad boy and you have to repeatedly convince the hairdresser to trust you because it's a great idea."

    If Solyndra were an isolated case then it might be unworthy of note, but Solyndra is one of a long line of failures in the green field, & they continue to push . It might be easier to see if there has been a success. When the government picks winners & losers they seem to err on the losers side the majority of the time.
