Here's a fun game. Link me 10 anti-business regulations Obama has passed. Him being such a fucking anti-business communist this ought be easy. Feel free. Obamacare only counts as one.

I sympathise with those living in Communist America.

Actually in some ways it is...but only for big biz*...of course our friend in that link would probably disagree.

Hmmm. Maybe it's time to treat those business "leaders" with public scorn? Let them go Galt and move to China since it's economic nirvana.

Hmmm. None are leaving. Why is that?

Nah. It's like kicking a lame dog. Too easy.

When liberts wonder why I don't like their philosophy; it's because the ones I am around are like this guy. Always angry. Always negative. Always judgemental. I had a friend who was like this but for a lack of better words "in the closet" about it. One day he let it out and he just got nastier and nastier and nastier.

Yeah but you see I'm a bit of a bastard and have no qualms with kicking my enemies when they're down. Of course once they squeal "uncle" I would of course relent. Cannot give these people an inch.
