Dear middle class,
Stop buying houses that you can't afford. 25% of your take home pay is what your mortgage should be. Thanks.

Love, America.

P.S. Vote Republican
Too many times business owners are too afraid to voice their opinions and just try to keep everyone happy.

I greatly respect that you don't. Good post.

"dear poor people"

I read this, does that make me poor?

You should have rich prices and poor prices. So when a customer comes in for work, you simply ask them rich or poor. Based on that is how you should charge.

also, running back Jim Brown, same magazine, page 103: "YOU CAN'T HELP A MOTHERFUCKER SITTING ON HIS ASS, CRYING THE BLUES." also, "TELL YOU WHAT YOU GOT TO DO TO COMPETE. WHAT YOU GOT TO DO TO COMPETE IS COMPETE."

hope you're proud of your dad.

Hey rich guy, I have a head injury and a GED. I don't have a whole lot of choices in my life. If you don't run your business into the ground by shortsightedly going for the quick buck I'll gladly do whatever you can find for me to do. I'll do my part to build your company, but I do expect you to maintain a viable business to build and expand your own company.

I don't expect handouts. I'm willing to earn my way in life. That's why I vote Republican.

You guys crack me up. We're all enjoying the benefits of 28 years of the very free-market Reaganomics you all preach. The house and senate have been Republican controlled and they made the laws and the presidents signed them.

Your Republicans got all the deregulation they wanted, and look what good it's done. The latest crash? Well, the massive Republican majority and president had 8 years to change it and did nothing. Here's his opinion of all of us: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mn4daYJzyls

Guys, Reaganomics doesn't work. It's a great Utopian idea, but the last 28 years have proven that the greed will prevail. Even GW has to give in: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...oryId=98498125

Not to fear... shortly after Obama is sworn in there will no longer be any poor, or rich for that matter, actually I don't believe there is any financial statis when it comes to socialism and comunism.

Oh well I guess it all will hinge on what unfriendly country he negotiates with to take the U.S. over.

We might be able to fight back but him and Joe the used car salesman should have taken all of the wepons from the private sector proir to the take over.
