In for 3, rwi; thanks for the Ping.
Rush, for FFS; will you QUIT talking about your pals on cable TV and your political pals...talk LAYOFFS! There is a HUGE thread here at FR...this is an IMMEDIATE consequence of Zero’s re-election.
It’s on Drudge so I’m sure he’ll get to it.
Sorry about the double-ping.
Rush: “Repubs did not turn out their base.”
I have been looking at exit polls and exit poll articles this morning. Rush statement appears to be true, astonishing as it seems. We did NOT turn out our base.
He’s busy refuting the asinine position of the RNC and demographics.
3 million, Rush? How about energizing the 100 MILLION that don’t even bother voting? The GOP only needed a fraction of that group.
Did the Republican base really not show up or did they show up and had their votes discarded?
I’m a little less depressed than yesterday. Vowed not to watch network TV or news until after Christmas.
One of my friends in the office here is on suicide watch.
Those 2-3 million that stayed home...I’m wondering how many of them are dead? Or in nursing homes? Seriously. Do we even KNOW yet?
>>Did the Republican base really not show up or did they show up and had their votes discarded?
Thank-you for posting the Rush Limbaugh thread!
Tomorrow I can do it, post the thread. :)=^..^=
This is just the beginning.
In case you missed it, I reported on Obama’s layoff bomb last week.
Obama’s Layoff Bomb
October 31, 2012
by Michelle Malkin
In June, a diffident and self-deluded President Obama claimed that “the private sector is doing fine.” Last week, the private sector responded: Speak for yourself, buster. Who needs an “October Surprise” when the business headlines are broadcasting the imminent layoff bomb in neon lights?
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported last Tuesday that employers issued 1,316 “mass layoff actions” (affecting 50 workers or more) in September; more than 122,000 workers were affected overall. USA Today financial reporter Matt Krantz wrote that “(m)uch of the recent layoff activity is connected to what’s been the slowest period of earnings growth since the third quarter of 2009.” Some necessary restructuring is underway in response to the stagnant European economy. But more and more U.S. businesses are putting the blame — bravely and squarely — right where it belongs: on the obstructionist policies and regulatory schemes of the blame-shifter-in-chief.
Last week, Ohio-based auto parts manufacturer Dana Holding Corp. warned employees of potential layoffs amid “looming concern” about the economy. President and CEO Roger Wood specifically mentioned the walloping burden of “increasing taxes on small businesses” and the need to “offset increased costs that are placed on us through new laws and regulations.”
Case in point: Obamacare. The mandate will cost Dana Holding Corp., which employs some 24,500 workers, “approximately $24 million over the next six years in additional U.S. health care expenses.” As Ohio Watchdog blogger Maggie Thurber reported, the firm’s Toledo area corporate offices laid off seven white-collar employees last Friday; company insiders told her more were on the way. They are not alone.
On Tuesday, Consol Energy issued a federally mandated layoff disclosure announcing its “intent to idle its Miller Creek surface operations near Naugatuck, W.Va.” The move will affect the company’s Wiley Surface Mine, Wiley Creek Surface Mine, Minway Surface Mine, Minway Preparation Plant and Miller Creek Administration Group, all in Mingo County, W.Va. Despite state approval, cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and myriad other agencies, and a stellar safety record, Obama’s EPA dragged its feet on the permit approval process. The impasse has forced layoffs of 145 Consol Energy employees that will hit at the end of the year. They are not alone.
In August, Robert E. Murray, founder and CEO of Murray Energy Corporation in Ohio, blasted the White House anti-coal agenda for the layoffs and closure of his company’s mine. He told Obama water-carrying CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien that “the many regulations that (Obama) and his radical appointees and the U.S. EPA have put on the use of coal, there are dozens of them and collectively by his own energy administration, have closed 175 power plants.” As O’Brien barked at her guest about purported environmental objections, Murray explained that “we cannot get permits for these mines. They are delaying the issuance of permits. If you can’t get the permit, you can’t have the mine. … I created those jobs, and I put the investment in that mine. And when it came time to lay the people off, I went up personally and talked to every one of them myself to lay them off. It’s a human issue.”
Stryker, a maker of artificial hips and knees based in Kalamazoo, Mich., is slashing 5 percent of its global workforce (an estimated 1,000 workers) this coming year to reduce costs related to Obamacare’s taxes and mandates.
Covidien, a N.Y.-based surgical supplies manufacturer, recently announced layoffs of 200 American workers and plans to move some of its plant work to Mexico and Costa Rica, in part because of the coming tax hit.
Mass.-based Zoll Medical Corp., which makes defibrillators and employs some 1,800 workers in the U.S. and around the world, says the medical device tax will cost the company between $5 million and $10 million a year.
This July, Indiana’s Cook Medical Inc. shelved plans to open five new plants because of the imminent medical device tax hit. They are not alone.
The heads of Koch Industries, Westgate Resorts and ASG Software Solutions have all separately informed their employees of prosperity-undermining Obama economic politics. Left-wing groups have lambasted the executives for exercising their political free speech.
But they have remained silent while the White House corruptocrats bribed federal defense contractors into delaying federally mandated layoff disclosures before the election. In a memo now being investigated on Capitol Hill, Obama promised to cover the legal fees of Lockheed Martin and other defense contractors if they ignored legal requirements to inform workers in advance about so-called sequestration cuts to the military’s budget scheduled to kick in next year.
Truth suppression is a time-honored Obama tactic, of course. Remember: The administration and its Democratic allies on Capitol Hill attempted to punish Deere, Caterpillar, Verizon and ATT in 2010 for disclosing how the costs of Obamacare taxes were hitting their bottom lines — even though they were simply following SEC disclosure requirements. The White House also tried to silence insurers who dared to inform their customers about how Obamacare was driving up premiums.
Not this time. The administration’s bully boys don’t have enough whitewash and duct tape to cover up the past, present and future devastation of the president and his economic demolition team.
Wonder if the anti-Mormons and RuPaul voters all abstained.
Knowing that less voters that didn't vote, means we didn't become a nation that wants Santa Clause. We just need conservatives to run. But you and I both know that already. Now the Republican Party has to figure that out.
With you...I do fill better today.
Day two, Santa Clause Redux...
That’s great; thanks!
Anyone hear from IMPR?
That’s a good point. We don’t know. It’s all just statistics.
“,,,had their votes discarded...”
That’s what I’m thinking. But I’m still *up on the ledge*, from Tuesday night’s results.
I heard about “massive GOP turn-outs” everywhere, but this election was an even worse failure than 2008 was. I don’t see how that happened, given what we all knew would happen if that 0bummer-POS was re-elected.
Something doesn’t smell right...
So on the Democrat side, everyone knows Santa Claus, nobody understands Economics.
Yes, sir. :-)
OUTSTANDING post! Thank you very much!
I haven’t come to grips yet. Mrs S comes home tomorrow and then we’ll talk seriously about moving.
“...on suicide watch...”
I’m still *up on the ledge*, myself... LOL. Nice view, and discounting all the poop, the pigeons are quite good company.
Thanks for the ping.
Sadly, the layoffs begin. Even McDonald’s sales dropped.
The DOW is dropping again as we speak.
bingo - and this site is exhibit a
that - and the noot/cain/whoever pouters
Heading to Bama?
That’s the one!
What browser are you using that copies all the links into a post? IE? Opera/FF don’t do that. I have to put all of them in, manually.
So far I have not, and I hope she is doing well. I can with you set up the thread, but I do hope IMPR can get back so she can do it since she is the regular thread set-up person. :)=^..^=
We have right to work and right to fail...
LOL. I don’t think the exit polls dig that deep.
BUT, I was looking at Christian vote, and get conflicting analysis. Most say Romney picked up Christian vote over McCain by a substantial percentage.
I also heard in an interview, but haven’t confirmed yet, that only half of Christians are registered to vote, and of those, 50-70% stay home and don’t vote. Find that hard to believe but plan to search for stats.
BTW: Also heard that Tim Keller (unorthodox) sent out a late letter to a huge database telling Christians to write in “Jesus Christ” for president. I can’t find that now on Google either, but I think it was a FR thread.
Wow. Let us know what you decide. I wish I could move, but I don’t think BF would go for it.
Speaking of whom, the only chuckle I had today was remembering what he did on election night.
When I was on the phone with him, I told him not to tell me what was happening, because I had a feeling it wasn’t good. He ignored me, and kept punctuating our conversation with reports. “That MF’ing CS-er just won another state!”
It’s actually funny now.
The only tv I’m watching is Neil Cavuto at 4 on FNC and then at 8 on FBN. I don’t know why but he’s the only person on tv right now that I can tolerate.
It’s a deeply unsettling time in America. After the 08 election I turned on HGTV and The Food Network..and turned OFF Fox. Now even they are too political.
The people that voted for the O are going to find out just how hard life is going to become.
As far as I am concerned, I am done with political parties all together. This country is as far as I am concerned, is in BIGTIME trouble.
Would love to live in Bama on the ocean. Most likely just across the Potomac.
The people that voted for the O are going to find out just how hard life is going to become.
Great links, thank you.
The exclusions from the Republican party’s inclusive convention were the Tea Party and Christian Right. If anything sealed their defeat, it was that snubbing.
Oh my! BF has quite the colorful repertoire.
I can’t believe Mia Love lost either. WTF!
Saw an article on Twitchy today that some Twitter users rejoiced when Obama was elected, because that means they’ll keep their foodstamps.
And apparently, there was a rumor circulating in certain communities that if Romney was elected, he was going to ban hair weaves. I’m not kidding.
