In addition to the obvious lack of imagination on each of these, has anyone noticed that ALL of these "franchises" fail to actually PRODUCE anything?
So lets say I own a home healthcare company - I emply ie. 20 people..... with Obama care I'll almost double my operating costs.....
in 1997 I started a company in my home. I hove no employee, no store front, no inventory, and per month I bring home just under eight thousand dollars. Im not rich but real happy because my income will never stop! even if I stop doing what I do, I will always see the income I have now, or more! I could use a person down south and a person on the east coast! dont buy a Franchise! im not selling a franchise. I am giving you a chance to own your own business.
It makes me sick to hear all this political garbage, especially Mr. Romney telling how he STRUGGLED to start his own business. I'm shocked there weren't any opportunities to start your own venture capital business for a $50,000 investment. To many people that $50,000 equates to a lifetime of saving because their father wasn't the CEO of a major car company with millionaire resources and connections both socially and politically. I'm very sure Mr. Romney never lost any sleep wondering whether his very life savings was on the line and whether he might lose his home or be able to feed his family if his start up business took a while to get running or at worst possibly fail. I don't think Mr. Obama has all the answers, but how can anyone who has never worried whether their job might get shipped to China, or whether you might not have healthcare because the CEO needs to fund his golden parachute, have the gall to stand and say they understand what it is like to really struggle and work for a living. The middle class is rapidly disappearing where a kid who either can't hack the college life, or his parents don't have the resources to assist, has too few options for a decent paying job with benefits. Even college grads come out so far in debt for a job that pays $30,000 a year if they're lucky enough to find one. Talk to one of those people, and see if they think ole Mitt understands their struggle.
The picture of Signal 88 was at Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha, the ex-home of the College World Series, the stadium is no more, was torn down this summer. Grew up just a few blocks from there and was very sad to see it go. A new one was built but just not the same.
