MrCynic says:

Americans living in the age of Obama are increasingly familiar with the types of problems that make doing business in Greece very difficult: a myriad of regulations and bureaucracies, strong labor unions, corruption, high cost and risk of being an employer, and poor protection for investors. In the EU Greece is the worst for starting a business in, in the world it ranks 140 out of 180 countries.

OMG! Another few years and the US will be just like Greece!

That certainly is the implication one would draw from MrCynic.

I tried to google his factoid about Greece and found one that was fairly close. (No link from MrCync as usual.)

Greece ranks 109 in the world. Not good.

Where does the US rank? 4

Where did the US rank in 2010? 5

How about 2009? 6

OMG! If we let Obama have a second term, the US will be the best place in the world to do business.

Tea Partiers Arise. We must not let this stand.
