It’s the latest ‘favored buzzword” of our conservative friends and the reason they want us to believe we aren’t seeing tens of thousands of new jobs being created, despite corporations sitting on more than $2 trillion in cash on hand!

Uncertainty about what I wonder? The economy? Tax changes? The next president?

Now unless I’ve been misinformed all these years, I always thought “uncertainty” was actually a “CERTAINTY” in any business?

Isn’t uncertainty an integral part of virtually every business venture and as such, they go “hand-in-hand?”

If starting and operating a business successfully was without “uncertainty,” wouldn’t everyone in America be running their own businesses, I suspect?

That was always the “challenge” I remember when I started any of my small businesses. The attitude it took to say, “I’m not afraid of uncertainty. I will persist and persevere!”

So what gives? Do these crazed tax-cutting conservative mouthpieces really believe we are that gullible to buy into this new “theory” of the “dreaded uncertainty principle?”


But here’s the really hilarious part: The GOP wants us to cut business taxes AGAIN, while adding another $46 billion to our national debt. They call it a small business tax cut, but it applies to any business up to 500 employees, so it’s really going to mostly benefit millionaires again!

You see, they are really trying to convince us that $2 trillion is simply not enough cash to make the difficult decision to create new jobs in America. Businesses need exactly $2.046 trillion, apparently? Isn’t that interesting?
