Small business owners are fighting tooth and nail many continue to barbecue present Obama for these statements.
A great -- someone in your life.
That's unbelievable American system that we have been allowed you to thought.
Some invest in roads and bridges that you got a business.
That you don't build up.
A Georgia lumber yard donor is making sure everyone can see his anger with the president -- -- -- posting a sign saying.
-- build this business without government help Obama can kiss my expletive.
Now why such a fierce response rate gestured joins his biggest Sarah and tell me -- why -- -- fierce response for that signed.
Good evening Greta greetings from the sunny south.
Well when you hear that players say it just say it's just an outrage what President Obama said.
Anybody that ever started are built that business has the insulted by those.
You know by those remarks.
The amount of sacrifice the hard work.
-- the sacrifices that we made some small businesses it's just amazing and in that -- were able to survive.
And so by the president to get up there and now basically -- business the way he did.
But -- say it was an insult.
And I just felt that it didn't hit it into an answer back in -- language that he would understand and that's why I had those banners made.
You know we talk so authentic about people are unemployed or underemployed and I'm just curious at your company at one time in the middle 2007.
Or so ahead 85 employees -- -- down to I think about dental and have been done a thirty placing down about fifty.
I'm curious how difficult it is for a small business owner to lay off people and to cut their pay.
I don't think they've and -- someone was watching in my shoes and had to go through all the hardship and pain that felt good people.
Solid citizens that were doing a good job and because the the business was dry enough.
Especially in our sector the housing sector is the hardest hit it still is the hardest hit of those are recession that we've been going through.
And to tell them that we didn't have a position for them -- the send them home and tell them that they were laid off was a tough tough.
Pardon anybody and -- all that me and my managers some of the toughest decisions we've had to make.
You know we are successful you can -- Do your soda celebrate we share the joys and other things that you do but when things turn bad on your it is really tough because most -- employees are like failing to get -- know them you know little bit about them and their families.
And up hard you know of of doing a business is to grow it.
And when you start shrinking back and having to cut back here.
The way that we've had to over the last three or four years it's it's just been horrible there's a lot of pain and suffering out there which people still don't seem -- understand unless you were affected.
It -- it are -- robbers in -- have to put up a sign about the president for his insensitive room remark about building business.
But I am curious do you blame him before -- for the economy not up and going faster to recover from the recession.
I I think he's responsible for a lot of that.
You know when he came out with his son stimulus program they said -- things to the effect -- we'll have.
Unemployment below 8% and if I don't then I'm I shouldn't be reelected.
And I think a lot of that initial stimulus.
He was basically if it if you could write a book.
And you put down all the things not to do in order to get the economy going those other things that he did he went -- he supported other other government entities.
Went out into this on this tangent on solar energy and a couple other things.
Where he's taking care of his friends -- People patronize him and his party and to what avail under what's come out of that nothing -- come out of that.
Basically it's a whole bunch of money you might say walking around money that he's.
He's had and it hasn't done anything that has helped the economy recovers.
Set -- it -- regrets Verisign.
No I don't in fact if anything it's starting to pick up in other areas what we put up a -- website that's gastric band or dot com and I think we've shipped signs about twenty other states and so they're starting a pop up.
And the whole idea was to sign no way to answer.
What the president said about if you have a business you didn't do that somebody else did.
It was not only cancer -- but they get other businesses stand up.
-- shortsighted and us that's coming out of Washington DC and mainly on the White House and let them know that we've had enough and we're not part of the problem were part of the solution.
If the American economy is ever going to recover and it is starting to recover it's gonna take a lot of small businesses.
Growing and getting bigger and a lot of hard work on our part to make it work.
-- thank you.
Thank you very.
