    right minds is going to hire more employees without an increase in demand. The paradox of thrift. No matter how many tax credits or tax benefits you give business they are not going to hire in a period of shrinking demand.

    Now marketing can help create a demand for a product or switch brand preference. But a smart consumer at this point is paying down debt and saving money. Or at least trying to. My wife is working as many as 80 hours a week to try and get a head of this mess. Yet we are considered looters. On Facebook I have been called a commie, a socialist loser and a Stalinist who is responsible for the deaths under the Stalin regime. Of course the fact that I was born 5 years after Stalin died matters not. It is still my fault.

    So I am through with Facebook arguments. Facts backed up by reliable sources mean nothing to these people. Rational calm debate only makes them angrier. A kind of an animal rage sets in. And Romney being the class act that he is is the most graceless, divisive loser in my memory.
