Jul 12th 2011 6:09PM Thank Bill Clinton 'The International President' who has caused more damage to the American economy that anyone else. He is STILL out there preaching the value of NAFTA to countries that pay $0.50 an hour wages with free help from the US to get their products TARIFF FREE on as many US store shelves as possible. Try competing with THAT setup and and you'll see why there are no American made products on store shelves. We have shot ourselves in both feet with our promotion of NAFTA and the free access to our markets that it guarantees, while the countries that make those shoddy items can't afford to buy ours. What a deal...for everyone but American small business that is.
Jul 12th 2011 5:59PM Obama is'nt your problem, YOU ARE you're problem. If your business can't cut it, join the rest of us GET A JOB.
May 27th 2011 2:19PM Yes and 99% of the money went to the 'SMALL BUSINESSES' that hire 500 people. It's STILL considered 'Small Business' so don't even bother to apply for a laon if you don't employ up to 500 people. THAT'S SMALL BUSINESS' as far as Washington is concerned. If you don't have the secret 'requisite number' it's 'go F*** yourself, you're already a loser'. Obama is no different. Every time he tours a 'small business' its easy to see its really not a 'small business' at all but a well established enterprise and they are the one's benefiting from the SBA. If their figures are right I have only worked for ONE 'big business' that employed more than 500 people. Its all a farce and just another way to get money to the already wealthy. They treat us as if we are totally stupid as well as blind.
May 25th 2011 12:02PM Perfect example of a FAKE NEWS brainwashed sucker. Glenn Beck hasn't an honest bone in his body. Even used car 'sandlots' wouldn't hire a liar like he is. He has no future except with his already numbed and dumbed 'followers'.
May 25th 2011 11:57AM Would you buy a used car from this clown ? Not me, I think everything he will offer is either 'recycled' or 'refurbished' with no warranty that one can believe. Once a liar, always a liar. Then again, there's always room for one more snake-oil salesman.
May 25th 2011 10:16AM Contradictory comment from O'Brian. He says he interested in the regular person and then reverts back to commenting on his favorite 'celebrities'.
May 25th 2011 10:12AM My advice to HIM is: either shave off the fuzz, or grow a REAL BEARD. It tells me you are indecisive.
May 21st 2011 11:52AM I agree. As a Sales Engineer dealing with complex technical issues and answering multiple questions on minute details brought up in Engineering meetings, a face to face meeting to address the issues immediately is vital. A combination of videoconferencing and personal visits is the best solution in my opinion. Often times in a meeting a decision maker attends who may not appear to be involved in the initial phase of the sales cycle but whom you suddenly realize is a key person in making the final decision. That becomes obvious in a 'face to face' but may not be obvious in a videoconference. Many technical 'big ticket' sales can be lost to the competition if one relies solely on videoconferencing and all the other forms of contact if face to face meeting aren't a part of the mix.
The sales persom is the 'face' of the company they represent, and if nonchalance is detected in winning the order, don't be surprised if the competition that made the 'face to face' calls gets it.
May 17th 2011 9:34AM 'Allen' is the key to a good show. The 'kid' is getting a little too old to be so 'childish' and I predict he will be sent go off to 'a relative' before too long. I recently saw my first episode of '2.5 men' and Sheen acting like a teenager was a little hard to take. The guy is in his 40's and doesn't represent many 40 year old guys raising a family and holding down a job. His run is over, and he has only his greed and arrogance to blame. He was paid more for one episode than most guys earn in several years of the daily grind. Greed did him in, and it serves him right.
May 16th 2011 1:23PM Can't agree. I believe the obesety problem we are having with our kids is directly linked to their sitting in front of a TV for hours on end, and very likely snacking on some sort of junk 'food'. The childrens shows are mindless garbage for the most part (exception is PBS) and the 'reality shows' are an insult to one's intelligence, but they are cheap to produce. My grandkids enjoy board games and reading and seldom watch TV, except Barney, etc. One can pick and choose using Netflix so I believe cable TV will eventually go the way of the 'eight track' or the cassette. Cable companies are killing the goose that lays their golden egg. Once you break the cable habit, there's no going back to their over priced programs with 80% of the content blaring commercials.
