Yup, I’m still alive and kicking. I’ve been pretty tied up trying to keep my current employees from losing their jobs and figuring out if I can hire a single new person in the near future. I was supposed to be hiring nearly forty new people in calendar year 2013. But while the media is parroting the DNC’s mantra of “It’s about the need to tax the top 2%” remember it really about the Budget Control Act signed that the Executive and Legislative branches of the government both voted on and signed inn 2011. The purpose of the law was to make sure that the folks in D.C. had to do their job and fix the budget mess in calendar year 2012 “or else”. Problem is the “or else” didn’t include anything the politicians feared. The only punishments for their failure is that they have an “or else” that just frakes over the common man. This whole “raise taxes on the rich” is merely a bullshit smoke screen about a tiny piece of the issues that actually will fix nothing on the deficit problem. ALL the members of the current standing Congress are at fault. ALL the members of the current standing Congress are FAILURES. All of this fingerprinting, and blame, is just immature denial of a holistic body of institutional incompetence that cares not one once for their constituents over their personal pride and position.
