The dismal economy is the main reason many companies aren’t hiring, and few executives think President Obama’s plan will change that.
Three (3) points that I should address here:
1) Who are these “employers” mentioned in the headline? I know I could read the article to find out, but I’m not going to because I already hate it. Further, I know that my employer is in favor of the Obama jobs plan. Many of my former employers have been liberals, and would seem likely to be supportive of the plan (however tepidly) as well. Just who the fuck are we talking about when we talk about “employers,” Mr. Fancy Pants New York Times?
SATSQ: Da oligarchs.
Second: last name “Rich”? Srsly? As in “I am siding with the… rich”-Rich? The last Rich you had was so much better, New York Times, even if he could be a bit stream-of-conscience-y at times (NOT THAT THERE’S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT, MIND YOU).
c) Finally, because I’ve already determined that I am by no means going to waste my time reading this article (instead, I will waste my time making fun of its prominence on the Times’ homepage) — Shorter NYTimes: “Rich people are unhappy with more taxes, and YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO THEM, PLEBES.“
Disclaimer: I was by no means driven insane (read: drunk) today by books. Okay, fine. I’m going to bed.
