A businessman in Waco, Georgia has posted signs on his trucks that he is not hiring until Obama is out of the Presidency. Bill Loomis apparently owns a Construction Crane business. And since construction seems to have generously benefited from the billions of dollars of recovery money – more than any other industry…
I find Mr. Looman, the owner of US Crane – to be a bit on the looney-tune side. At least where I live, it is impossible to drive more than 500 feet anywhere in the metro area and not be confronted by a closed for construction road, cranes, bulldozers, and all the necessary equipment for major highway construction – my question has to be WTF happened to this guy? I think his problem isn’t business, although it may be business acumen… Combined with a strong dose of right wing stupidity.
One of the strongest criticisms of the various programs supposedly implemented to get the economy going again is that it is too focused on construction, and not focused enough to creating jobs for folks with college degrees and professionals.
Conservatism will indeed make you stupid.

Seems that some folks in the US, as well as in China have hit upon the idea using “Obama” name recognition to peddle fried chicken…

Two city fast-food joints are calling themselves Obama Fried Chicken – and the new names are ruffling some feathers.
Eateries in Brooklyn and Manhattan plastered the new President’s last name on their awnings recently.
And some passersby are cringing, saying the name change plays into old racial stereotypes.
“Why name it that? Just because Obama is black, they’re going to put his name on a fried chicken place in a black neighborhood?” said Akilah Nassy, 16, outside the Brooklyn store.
And here, in China -
For all the grief the Obama administration is getting from China for filing a complaint with the World Trade Organization about Chinese tariffs on American chicken exports, perhaps the president should be suing China for royalties instead.
We’ve seen Obama peddle chicken for Kentucky Fried Chicken in Hong Kong, so it was just a matter of time before he broke loose and got his own franchise here in the mainland.
Obama Fried Chicken, or at least what we assume OFC stands for, was found earlier this week in Beijing and comes with the slogan written underneath in Chinese: “We’re so cool, aren’t we?”
It’s all about selling product.
