At least he's honest

I'm not in favor of those laws that well-meaning legislators are trying to pass that would make it illegal for employers to say "Must be currently employed" in their ads. Just making it illegal to say they won't hire the unemployed doesn't do anything to make them actually consider the unemployed; it just wastes the candidate's time (and transportation costs).

Similarly, I can't get all that outraged about this:
A west Georgia business owner has been deluged with calls and emails after posting signs on his company's trucks that say he's not hiring anyone until President Barack Obama leaves office.

Waco-based U.S. Cranes LLC owner Bill Looman tells WXIA-TV ( that reaction has been so intense he's had to disconnect his phones and temporarily shut down the company's website.

He posted the signs on his company's trucks for other motorists to see on roads and interstates across the South. The signs proclaim "New Company Policy: We are not hiring until Obama is gone."

Looman says he's not refusing to hire employees to make a political point. He told WXIA he can't afford to hire anyone because of the economy, and he blames the people in power.

It seems that every major corporation and every small company run by people who listen to Rush Limbaugh feel the same way, except that they call it "uncertainty". So let's know where they stand. And where they stand is that these people would rather see the economy tank than see Barack Obama re-elected.

Just don't let them call themselves "patriots."
