    Default Georgia Business Declares New Company Policy: We Are Not Hiring Until Obama Is Gone

    Georgia Business Declares New Company Policy: We Are Not Hiring Until Obama Is Gone

    http://thinkprogress.org/politics/20...il-obama-gone/

    By Scott Keyes on Nov 27, 2011 at 11:58 am

    A business owner in western Georgia instituted a new company policy recently: We are not hiring until Obama is gone.

    Bill Looman, who owns U.S. Cranes, LLC in Waco, Georgia, explained that while Ive got people that I want to hire now, he didnt think he would be able to foot the expense unless some things change in D.C.

    Not content to simply implement the new policy internally, Looman decided to plaster it on all his companys trucks. He did so, as 11Alive noted, for all to see as the trucks roll up and down roads, highways and interstates. Watch it:

    The notion that President Obamas economic policies preclude small businesses from hiring new workers isnt the only ludicrous claim Looman pushes. A cursory glance at Loomans public Facebook page shows he is prone to anti-Obama conspiracy theories. Earlier this month, he posted a false report that Larry Sinclair the man who claimed he did drugs and had sex with President Obama had died and implied foul play, writing MAKES YOU WONDER HUH? Loomans page is also riddled with pro-confederate and anti-Muslim postings.

    More importantly, Loomans assertion that he would be able to hire more workers but for Obamas economic policies defies reason. In the last few months alone, Obama has proposed giving major tax credits to businesses that hire new workers, including a $4,000 credit for hiring the long-term unemployed. Just this week, Obama signed a law to give additional tax credits to businesses that hire veterans.

    Ironically, despite the fact that he claims to want to hire new workers, Loomans anti-Obama anti-hiring stance will prevent his business from enjoying any of these new incentives.

    For the record, not all of Georgia is pro confederate. Just south Georgia. You know, the part closest to Florida.

    Unfortunately, a larger percentage of our population is becoming that damn stupid every day.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his
