Like many of you last night I was watching Mork & Mindy because it was the episode when Mork runs away because he thought he was being a burden on Mindy. Actually, it was the 4th episode where Mork ran away for that same reason.
I needed some emotional, but light television last night because I was knee deep in decision making about my business. During a commercial break I turned to catch a little Big Brother but to my surprise it had be preempted by some type of flash mob called the Republican National Convention.
I was thrilled to stumble across this because I new they would have some answers for me, like they always do. There was a fella called Paul Ryan up there talking about how the Republicans had a plan to create 12 million jobs if we voted Mitt Romney as the President.
What was this secret plan, and how did it work? Which 12 million of us got the jobs and how would we know where to go when we kissed our heterosexual life partner on the cheeck and drove off into the middle class sunrise. I was hanging on the edge of my for nearly 2 seconds until he changed the subject.
If Mitt Romney really knew how he was going to create 12 million jobs I don’t think he would tell the guy who’s a plate of bad clams away from becoming president and taking all the credit for the plan they don’t even have in the first place.
But the important thing is that they said they had the plan. And that is really all the American People deserve to hear. As a nation we tend to get caught up in the details of these plans and that can really spoil the effect of perfectly manicured speeches. You know the kind where the guy walks and asks you to bare with him because he’s under the weather and he starts softly with a few statements and then a few creshendo moments ending with a towel wiping the brow sweat and yelling at the opposition.
I’m going to say that since the hopeful leaders of our country say they have a 12 million jobs plan, then I will believe them because I am an american and their party line is to never underestimate the stupidity of the American public. And, hey that’s me!
But as they try to slip this by unchecked I would like to point out the challenge set out that their plan will create 12 million jobs only with a GOP victory. This implies that if President Obama remains president, these guys won’t tell him whey they are hiding the jobs.
So if you don’t vote for Mitt, you aint getting no job. That doesn’t seem fair, but it certainly seems american. Maybe they could give us a handful of those millions of jobs.
This is the part of politics that has to leave the small business community pulling their hairs out because smallbiz is the key to both parties plans of turning the economy around. Maybe during Paul Ryan’s speech, somebody should have run up and tickled him relentlessly until the secret leaked right out. Then we could have all seen it.
Even though the dog and pony show isn’t over we have read that they are forthcoming and detailed about their plans. Unfortunately they were the ones who wrote down so we could read it. It doesn’t not make sense. They will ask us to vote based on the speeches where the people who paid a lot of money to be there and then to stand up and clap for them.
What does this all mean for the middle class and small business? It means the same thing as the plan in 1776 meant. It’s none of our business because they don’t gotta plan. Thankfully I do.
My plan, and your plan, is business as usual. You do not have to go to a big bank to get favorable business loans with lots of restrictions on how you as the business owner can spend your proceeds because they banks before gave bad loans.
You do not have accept grants to run your business the way the grant giver wants you to run your business. You can get an unsecured loan based on your personal credit for a minimum of $50,000 that you do whatever you want with. You can pay down debt, hire our of work people from the losing campaign, invest in machinery or anything you would like.
You see while the dig dongs on capital hill are busy trying to trick into voting for the one that may only govern you not that badly. You could focus on the issues and not the party, take control of your business to turn to people that will help you for all the right reasons.
