    The "job creators" are the customers, not the owners, of a business. And as a customer myself, I appreciate when the businesses I patronize remain apolitical except where they can cite a very specific government policy of special interest to their industry. Even then, there’s a time and a place — such as writing their congressperson, Chamber of Commerce, and/or local newspaper — and it’s not press conferences to announce acquisitions.
