So, I'm flipping channels, and I come across Glen Bleck doing a small business thing. Besides other inanities he and his panel are spouting, including that the democrats are sticking it to "the evil small businessman" (this is what's known as putting words in people's mouths), they just did a thing on how the CEOs of GM (and yes, they specifically named GM) or Wall Street can pick up the phone and get their congressman or senator to jump for them. Really? How did that work out for former GM CEO Rick Wagoner? Considering Beck did a whole rant on how that was so horrible that Obama had the man "fired."
But the other thing they said about this was that congressman and senators only listen to the "special interests" and lobbyists and that small businesses can't afford to have lobbyists or special interests.
Well, Glen, your guests and commentators are just as dumb as you are. For your edification:
NFIB - National Federation of Independent Businesses.
NSBA - National Small Businesses Association.
US Chamber of Commerce.
US Women's Chamber of Commerce.
National Association of Socially Responsible Organizations.
See, something for everybody. And I'm sure I'm missing some hundred other lobbying groups that specifically focus on small business issues (but frankly, it's dinner time and I didn't want to do some general googling to find more).
Oh, and if I can get time with my congressman or senator (having just written all of them about health care and gotten responses back from all except Senator Voinovich (r)) so can your small business people.
So, Glen, choice time. Are you and your commentators and guests just stupid and don't know the first thing about what they're spouting off about, or are you intentionally lying? I'm going to be generous and say you're just stupid.
