Meet the new Halliburton: Bain Capital

Now that the GOP candidates have adopted leftist anti-capitalist talking points on Bain Capital, the company is quickly becoming the new Halliburton. A company that has done nothing wrong yet is completely vilified merely for being a company that attempts to earn a profit. The Democrats have trotted out a sob story in 57 year old Randy Johnson – how did Bain Capital and Mitt Romney ruin his life? Prepare to be underwhelmed. Get the story in the clip above.

    So we see the propaganda going to work once again – a man who lost his job after the union went on strike, thus having the factory shut down instead of the owner caving in to the coersion of the unions is some form of evil incarnate.

    Prepare to be underwhelmed? Oh I am well past underwhelmed; the progressive Democrats are constantly rehashing the same old story for their side over and over and over again.

    As they say:

    The lies, distortions, and fabrications of our propaganda remain the same;
    Only those we chose to martyr and scapegoat change.

    Okay. . .I confess.  I like to fire people too.  A landscape contractor that showed up when he felt like it – fired him.  A soccer coach for my son whose coaching method involved screaming and degrading players – fired him.  A cleaning lady who didn’t actually clean – fired her. A hairdresser who kept moving from salon to salon, always farther from my house with higher prices – fired her.  I bet I am personally responsible for

    Sorry – new to posting so I posted before I was finished.  Anyway, I am personally responsible for firing tens (maybe hundreds) of stores, restaurants, physicians and service people of all kinds which didn’t perform adequately, when I could no longer afford their service (I miss weekly manicures :( ), when I no longer needed their services, etc.  I even fired employees of my two businesses when their work or work ethic was unacceptable.  Oh horrors.  The sad thing is that most voters won’t go beyond the headline.

    Why haven’t the GOP candidates picked up on the Obama speech in Kansas where he declared that Capitalism doesn’t work and has never worked.  He is a total Marxist and they say nothing about it.  What a joke.  They should be on this and playing his words on every spot they buy.

    I love this whole bit on Bain Capital! Really should use it as an advertisement for Romney while also exposing Obama’s minions for what they are…you guys can do the bit and there could be a cartoon (kinda like what you did for the Obama national anthem) I’m tellin ya, people will want to watch that commercial…instead of a freakin’ half hour commercial. Who’s gonna watch that except for DNC people that can borrow snippets!

    Makes sense to me.  As the primary here in New Hampshire wraps up, Republicans recognize the downside of the free market: regular people lose so the wealthy can benefit.  So Republicans wisely move to the middle, and shift their support to Huntsman the most moderate guy running.  It is reassuring that my Republican friends are seeing the liberal light :-).

    Newt critizing Romney is laughable! So Romney was a “corporate raider” taking millions while Newt “RAIDED his millions” from Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.  Talk about the ‘pot calling the kettle black’!  It’s called sour grapes and Newt doesn’t look good in his purple attire.

    Downside of free market?  The only losers in free market are those who can not or do not provide anything of value that can be traded for money.  I traded my labor to various business in my life and they made money and so did I.  That is capitalism.

    Most union members could not stand on their own and earn a living because they have been taught that hard work does not pay.  That is too bad because hard work does pay and they are simply missing their potential.

    The beloved, American Airlines, has hired SkyWorks and American Eagle has hired Bain Capitol to figure out how to run the airline and make it profitable, and do the ‘bankruptcy thing’ to the tune of MILLIONS. Yes, Bain and SkyWorks they are being paid MILLIONS to ‘figure this out’.
    My question…Why are the employees being targeted as too costly, and the Executives hire out their own ‘work’ because they don’t know what to do?

    Granted, these American citizen employees, belong to private little unions; but the Executives made the decisions to keep unprofitable routes and take massive bonuses, make poor decisions with Global Alliances and ask the employees to sacrifice more to keep the company operating.

    Why?

     How do these executives keep their jobs?
     They are failures.

     Their own company has filed for bankruptcy and they are the ones making the decisions for the company?
     Why should the taxpayers bail out these loser executives? They should ALL be removed.

    Instead, AMR just pays millions to Bain and SkyWorks to ‘figure things out’ because the Executives can not. The Executives can not make it work.
    For crying out loud…the first thing Bain should do is recommend firing the management!

    The more I read and hear on this one…I DO NOT BLAME LABOR.
        Sad deal for Conservatives, who happen to be Unioned Employees with a ‘Progressive Management Mentality’ running things.
    Sad, sad deal.

    They are both pigs at the trough.  I’m going to a funeral tomorrow for a guy who was 90.  He was quiet and stayed at home after retiring from the railroad.  I never knew it but I thought he was just an average Joe until I found out he was at Pearl harbor when it was bombed and on the USS Missouri when the surrender was signed.  That generation took care of each other after the war, but now it is just dog eat dog.  Sad, that we are losing that generation so quickly.

    Capitalism works, but not crony-capitalism.  The biggest problems are labor demands, govt. regs and taxes and boards that over compensate CEO’s at the expense of shareholders.  A lot of people sit on these different boards and they each take care of the CEO’s they oversee.

    Just because the left has been attacking businesses and capitalism for 80+ years doesn’t mean we have to defend every single last practice of every business.

    I have no idea what Bain did. And I believe in creative destruction. But if they did screw over an otherwise profitable and successful company, that would be problematic to me.

    But not everything problematic needs to be illegal.

    So let’s look at the record without looking to nail Romney if we don’t like him or to defend any old thing Bain did because saying something bad about what they did is anti-capitalist.

    Staples created 90,000 with money from Bain.  Isn’t that helping, people putting their money at risk, taking a chance?  I tell you it’s beyond my understanding why we don’t appreciate the entrepeneurs and business achievers in our society?

    My husband pointed to the ipad he was using and said it contained more computing power than all the computing power used for the first manned space flight.  I think most of us are ignorant, arrogant fools to not recognize what the capitalist have orchestrated, and made possible for us.

    The problem with your line of thinking?  It is the same as other anti-capitalists who envy folks with MONEY. I do not see the correlation that someone has to be a ‘pig at a trough’  just because they become rich through hard work, great ideas and investment strategy.

    Glenn Beck obviously has become quite rich through HIS hard work after dragging himself out of the gutter. Do you covet his success too?

    Nothing is mentioned about the fact Mitt refused take a salary for literally ‘saving’ the 2002 Olympics. The USA could have really had ‘egg’ on its face with the mess that was in. Not only did Mitt save the Olympics, when he was
    done it was the first in history to have a surplus of about $22 million.  Did he
    feed at the trough there? Or how about when he was govenor of Mass…once
    again he refused to take a salary because of the financial straits the state was in when he took over as govenor.

    I think the folks in this country, even some of the conservatives have fallen in
    line with the rest of the ‘poor me, I’m owed a living by the rich group’.  Mitt may be feeding at the trough but it sounds to me like he purchased the land, the lumber and paid to have it built. He is allowed to FEED at his own trough because of his hard work.

    It is time to start winning back our country and stop eating our own.  Romney is truly the most qualified of all the candidates.  The only question is whether he can be trusted to be the true conservative that is needed for the task.  His speech after the New Hampshire primary was spot on if he means it.  The private equity firm Bain Capital should not be a negative issue for the right. It is perfect for the job at hand when applied toward the bloated public sector agencies of the federal government.  That is… to take an axe to the over spending, liberal cesspool of the Federal government that is destroying American liberty and its way of life.  

    The 2010 election was a beginning but fiscal conservatives need time to seed both houses of Congress and the State governments with like minded candidates before trying to change to mind set and purging the progressives in the RNC.  Four more years of Obama and the country will be screwed for decades in the future.  American’s are not fools.  I believe they will vote to anybody but Obama regardless of who the republican’s put up.

    Despite Glenn’s dislike for Gingrich I believe he must stow  his idealist views for at least one more election cycle.  It is not Santorum’s, or Perry’s time.  Gingrich may have a shot but Glenn’s observations that Gingrich is a big government politician with no record of taking an ax to the Federal Government is true.  It is important for the Federal government to be fixed this election cycle and out of the way to give the private sector a change to make short work of the jobs problem.   The freedom of the country and maybe the world is at stake this election cycle.

    Now for the ‘creme de la creme’…I am all too familiar with a generation that
    ‘took care’ of each other. I had two babies, one 11 months old, another only 7 days old and not expected to live when I put my husband on the plane to Viet Nam. I didn’t know if I would ever see him again.

    My father was in WW II, and then the Korean War while my Mother had four young daughters at home. I didn’t know if my Dad would come back. I saw him
    9 weeks out of 3 years.

    When he finally retired he did exceptionally well with investments and hard work. There were LOTS of people he fired along the way. Would you say he
    was ‘feeding at the trough’ too?

    The difference between Newt and Mitt…Newt was on the “GOVERNMENT” payroll, Mitt created his own. Huge difference. One WORKED…the other
    didn’t and got paid just as much.

    Careful or you will be wearing purple attire like Newt!

    Being a nanny of young children, I would handle the “stooped over and bearded Randy” (not the pigeon-killing fastballer formally with our AZ Diamondbacks in the 2001 World Series YOO HOO, fist pump!) the same way I would handle a child’s temper tantrum.  Just ignore it and keep an eye on him/her until they wear themselves out with their wailing and flailing.  All while trying not to laugh or show any kind of attention positive or negative. 

    The Democratic propaganda machine is in full motion and Randy is one of their many useful idiots doing what big babies do, and that is attention-seeking.  I wince and smile,  knowing that once again, the “adults” are acting like children.  Sadly, they are teaching the wrong kind of behavior to our young adults who the universities and high schools are turning out in record numbers nowadays to be used by the progressive propaganda machine. 

    I would like to quote one of our pop culture celebs, Ms. Brittney or is it Brittany Spears:  A few  months back she was quoted as saying “If I weren’t famous, I’d be a teacher”.  And I instantly think:  But you ARE a teacher, Brittney/Brittany, just a very bad one.  She learned that from her parents and the Disney slutty-star fame merchandising machine.

    Bankruptcy doesnt mean tax payer bailout. Infact in bankruptcy the government gets their money first ahead of any other creditor.

    I dont think that LABOR is getting the blame. People take things too personally when you get fired. Would you prefer your paycheck bounce? Ive had to lay people off before. It could be argued that for what they cost me in wages their work wasnt making enough money to stay proffitable.

    If im forced to choose my family being homeless or yours….sorry but i choose yours. I pick because Im the owner, i risked my capital, and i work 24/7 and dont get paid unless i perform, when you are willing to take on those risks then come join the club and never be fired again! Untill then…shut up or move to a scocialist country.

    AND shareholders are owners, without their capital there would be no company, no job for you to cry about losing….if you dont like it dont work for a publicly traded company.

    It comes as no surprise to me that glenn beck holds Halliburton up as a pure, golden and perfect capitalistic company.
    I guess that glenn beck doesn’t care about its grotesque and vile treatment of women.  Doesn’t glenn beck remember the Jamie Leigh Jones case.
    I also assume that glenn beck doesn’t care that Halliburton has been sued on repeated occasions for human trafficking and sex slave rings.

    I guess glenn beck and his cult don’t care about rape or trafficking sex slaves.  Instead of acknowledging Halliburton’s evil practices, glenn chooses to place this company on a pedestal for everyone to admire.

    Again…I am not surprised by glenn beck’s vile move to idolize a company like Halliburton, because I know he is a disturbed and evil person.  I just can’t believe that his cult turns a blind eye to this vile man.

    With these arguments, Gingrich and Perry have shown their progressive stripe.   Of course, Newt, who suffers from FIM syndrome, learned long ago how to retreat from his FIM induced statements.  Apparently, all he was trying to do was ensure that Romney would not gain enough support to appear to be the nominee apparent before SC and FL.  And Perry saying he believes in venture capitalism, not vulture capitalism, has invoked the progressive stand on morality – that is whoever has the microphone gets to define what is moral in that moment.

    Karl Marx first used the word Capitalism to describe affluence and not in a positive way.  Today, the word is used the same way, but to the have-nots, it is still a negative word.   What we want is a free market, an open economy;  a system where companies and people can excel beyond their dreams. 

     That idea is open to and for everyone willing to struggle and work long hours to get there.   This idea is what needs to be preserved at all cost.

    This is why Obama needs replacing:
    Karl Marx=communism
    Saul Alinsky=socialism
    Bill Ayres=suppression
    Barack Obama=social justice
    All believe in distribution of wealth, collectivism and the destruction of individual rights.
    These are the enemies of a free market and the free world.   WE DO NOT WANT TO BE PART OF THE “ONE WORLD” CONCEPT.

    Good point , well expresses and logical.  However, we must admit
    Romney brought this on himself, most likely in a moment of weakness
    much like Obama’s 57 states.  I suppose he’ll never hear the end of it
    and if he’s good,will be able to turn it into a teaching point that in the
    end may work to his advantage.  But that assumes the voting public
    will look beyond the emply soundbites that are sure to come.  It’s a
    self inflicted wound but I hope not a leathal one.

    Lest Obama thinks he’ll have traction if Romney wins the GOP nomination, I have one word:Solyndra. This is an example of Obama trying to play venture capitalist providing a $535 million dollar loan to a company that goes bankrupt and all 1100 employees lose their jobs! Further, the tax payer is on the hook for the loss as well. None of these government idiots have ever had to make payroll and create a business from scratch. They’ve never had their own money on the line. And, guess what, If you’re not very good at it, the company goes under. I hate to see people lose their jobs, but maybe the unemployed should look to its own company’s poor mananagement for the real culprit rather than Bain Capitial and Romney.

    With whom do we raplace Obama? All the republicans candidates, except Mitt Romney, are on the same untipitalism bandwagon as Obama. I’m really disappointed with the Republican party, and sometimes I indulge myself thinking that maybe it is best that Obama wins a second term, that away he’ll break things so completely that the only choice is to start all over again. Then by the grace of God a leader will emerge from the ashes. Just thinking silly thoughts out of fustration and disppointment.

    I too want to be ABLE to fire someone. When I was in labor in a military hospital giving birth to my first son, I found out that I wouldn’t be able to receive a block for pain. See to save money, anesthesiologists were not called in on weekends. 24 hours later and crying in pain,  the nurse said SHUT UP IT DOESN”T HURT!! I wanted to be ABLE to fire her.

    I understand. I am afraid our country is beginning to deserve Obama in the White House. That being said I pray for the grace of God now.

    hay Barbara look who is supporting Romney now. http://misfitpolitics.co/2012/01/romney-seals-it-with-carter-endorsement/

    Well that’s the kiss of Death. Yet, why are they trying to sabotage Mitt?

    His record as a business man is stellar.
    A cabinet post perhaps?

  • Ryan Frederick

    well it could by that right now in the polls he is leading in the polls against Obama or Crater just loves him and that just freaky.

  • barbara clemen

    The MSM has been pushing Romney on us…to deaf ears. They really want to pit him against Obummer.

    That would be the best case scenario, or Paul.

    Has Newt now turned into Michael Moore?  I swear that 30 minute movie was put togehter by Mikey and his communist buddies.

  • Ryan Frederick

    i don’t know if i can vote for Paul maybe if it was just him and Obama then maybe.

  • barbara clemen

    Scary thought there, Ryan.

    Yet any body is preferable to Obummer.

  • Ryan Frederick

    to be truthful i don’t know. well i know Chris Matthews still gets that feeling up his leg when Obama talks.

    The implications in that statement should frighten all Americans of the state of our Media, and it’s role in usurping Constitutional norms, in favor of what? European Socialism?

    I shudder at the mire mention of this abomination.

    Now that Bacchman is out, the only person left I would vote for is Ron Paul.  Romney has too much baggage.  He’s a flip flopper and adores Obamacare, as his Romneycare is very similar.  You might not like Paul’s foreign policy, but THE TROOPS OVERWHELMINGLY DO!!  That should go a long way with most of America, since they are the ones fighting after all.  You can have your opinion’s about foreign policy, but shouldn’t the one’s actually fighting overseas have a LARGE voice in the media?

    I’m more interested in your so called Military career where you were on a secret mission for 9 years, were a NCO but quit the Army because you had a “change of heart” and drove a truck but didn’t drive a truck. Please tell me, what was Dallas? How much did your PA weigh? Where did you go to college? How many Iraqi children play volley ball?

    Why do you hate the Jews?

    Isin’t it a shame that we all have to be so very careful in what we say.  I”m 70, I’ve been a business owner/sole proprietor most of my life.  I’ve done my share of firing too.  I’ve put up with my share of employee theft, dishonesty, lying and attitudes of entitlement.  Don’t get me wrong. Most people are good people.  I like people.  Raised 12 of my own.  We taught them our values and how to work.  In my younger days, I was a Teamster twice.  It was a harsh introduction to the world out there.  I have zero tolerance for unions now.  They are like a cancer.  They absolutely kill free enterprise.  Sometimes, you need to rid yourself of the drones, for the good of the hive.  Try doing that in a union shop.  Good for Bain Capital!!!!!  Good for Mitt Romney!!!!!!
