The uncertainty meme is just mind boggling. Businesses always have a certain amount of regulatory uncertainty to deal with, and there's simply no evidence that this uncertainty is any greater now than it usually is ~ Kevin Drum (b. 10/19/1958) an American political blogger and columnist, as quoted from his 11/14/2010 Mother Jones article, "The Uncertainty Meme".

9/25/2014 Update: The poll expired a LONG time ago. In any case, my point with this commentary was to point out the stupidity of the Republican meme that business isn't hiring due to "uncertainty" - and poke fun at it. But I don't think I did a good job of it, and this post, IMO, is one of my worst.
I might delete it if not for the fact that it received a few comments. And I've been numbering my posts and deleting one would leave a hole. Anyway, this is a rare bad one, I think. On the whole I'm pretty proud of the body of work I've created here on this blog.
