I listened to Senator Bob Corker — and others — discuss the new financial regulations this morning. I was astonished to hear the single most moronic talking point evah: “New regulations will hurt job creation.”
You know what really hurts job creation?

The worst recession since the Great Depression, trillions of dollars in taxpayer monies used — unproductively — to bail out irresponsible banks. Oh, and 15 million lost jobs.

THAT hurt job creation, you frickin’ eejit.

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
