... tell them to shove it.

If there's one buzz word I've had my fill of, it's "job creators." "Job creators" won't hire because of "uncertainty." "Job creators" are keeping $2 trillion under the mattress. "Job creators" want lower taxes and less regulation to hire.

I call myself a "music producer" and an "electronics installer" and a "cook."

I get to call myself these things because I do these things.

The corporate titans of our country, the guys who make five million f'ing dollars an hour to play CEO for a Day (bet you half of it was spent "LOL"-ing on his Facebook page) are not creating jobs. They are sitting around, stuffing shareholders' money down their pants and laughing all the way to the Caymans.

Fine. Nothing in the law says you can't (sad to say). But you can't call yourselves "job creators" if that's not what you do. You're simply "smug self-enrichers."

And, until you actually start hiring, that is what we're going to call you.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
