Spoken like the clueless elitist that he is. The Blaze has the transcipt: There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back.

Obama to Entrepreneurs and Business Owners: ‘You didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happe...
While I don’t believe in Obama’s never-let-a-good-crisis-go-to-waste mantra or way of thinking, because it’s about him rather than the people in the situation, there are some lessons to be learned from crisis management–and the best place to learn about it is not in politics but from business.

An effective business strategy focuses on what you do better and cheaper than anyone else. Obama says he’s a friend to business but only if it’s an approved business. Otherwise, it’s war. We produce coal cheaper and better than anyone else. So when Obama is at war with coal, who’s he really at war with?
Eight states will begin the New Year with a higher minimum wage under state laws that mandate minimum wages increase with inflation.

The call themselves the Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength. The idea is that they believe they’re under taxed, and want the government to take more from them to […]
If you’ve hung around here for any length of time, then you know the general view of the Neil Goldschmidt cabal known as Tri-Met.

From today’s Albany Democrat Herald: Mid-valley grass-seed wholesalers and trucking companies got burned when Occupy Wall Street protesters descended on the Port of Portland on Monday. “I […]
Way to punish the working man, Occupiers! Spoiled Portland Occupiers, bitter that their demands for “free” college degrees, health care and other goodies at the expense hard-working Americans who have successfully climbed the economic ladder (otherwise known as the “evil rich”) aren’t being met, decided to stick it to their fellow 99%-ers as part of […]
