But...but...but, Obama has a plan. He said we've comeback from the brink! Oh yeah, and Romney is an evil, rich, capitalist!

I know this going to effect everybody, but i hope there will be some special suffering under this fools plans for those who voted for him a second time knowing what they did. They will get no sympathy from me!

It will only get worse. A bizarre anti capitalist EPA will continue to spew regulations that will inhibit entrepreneurs of all sorts. The economy will contract and Obama will usher in a lower standard of living for all.

This is just the beginning.

Fear not, ignorant citizens... We don’t need a thriving and productive private sector, we only need the jug-eared moron to demand the Treasury print more money. Obamanomics, or if you prefer Hoponomics, is the rule of the day... equal outcomes for all, means nothing more than we all suffer equally.

My husband read a book “Shadowbosses” He was saying that with Obamacare, the unions will be running it. They also plan to get rid of “right to work laws” and Obama will do it.

We are not socialists now. We are communists.

Much suffering is on the way. We will sit back and eat it because we always have. It ain’t gonna be pretty.

Every single person who is out of work heads for the government. It is not that handouts are inherently bad, but rather that at some point (that point should be short) people like those out of work need some help. The problem with government today is that the compassion and what I call stewardship of voting blocs require the masses to become a massive user of this assistance.

So today your post gives us just that many more (about 50% of every group) headed into the government trap of assistance.

I must repeat what I said yesterday in a post/thread and that is Republicans/Conservatives, etc., can and should educate themselves on the various forms of public assistance and take advantage of it - you should benefit from the elected government and not just those who voted for it. In this small way, perhaps the sheer numbers of opposition taking the bennies will prevent yet new programs from cropping up - there has never been a government program that died, but there are always new proposals to create more social programs when the money is there - just take your just dues and the very welfare that is already available - prevent more programs and overload the current programs.

Can’t be more specific but just got word that a medical group which was planning to expand into a new high tech field, met after the election and killed the expansion due to worries about aspects of Obamacare. So jobs, money, and new treatment facilities will now be lost.

And Bush will still be getting blamed along with the Republicans in congress. And they won’t do a damn thing to stand up and defend themselves. Whitey can’t blame the poor black man who is president. The culture refused to hold this man accountable because of his skin color.

My nephew was laid off from Motorola after 20-some years....one of 4000 layoffs in the company's staff......with more in the offing.

His whole department was moved lock, stock and barrel to Poland.

MFH, it looks like somebody’s been following your threads!

On another dim note I think the job losses here in the NYC/NJ area as a result of this storm are going to be larger than one might think. Not just seasonal workers at the Jersey Shore, much more than that.

Of course construction, etc. will be doing quite well for quite a while, so there’s that.

And that is something that rarely makes the news or is difficult to grasp by the electorate. While we look at people who actually lose their jobs, we sometimes fail to comprehend or communicate the number of jobs that are never created in the first place.

It's easy to quantify a layoff. More difficult to quantify a job that was never created. The latter in many ways being even more damaging than the former.

Well, the good news...at least based on the election statistics...

Every other one of those laid off voted for Obama.

The bad news?

The rest voted against Obama.

(Unless, employers are able to identify the Obama voters. That would be sweet.)

I worked in the pharmaceutical research industry for 15 years. I lost two jobs in three years as the companies were closing sites and tearing down buildings to save on property taxes.

And both companies are now building massive facilities in China.

They never came right out and told me that I was losing my jobs because of Obamacare but I could tell by the business volume picking up when it looked like he was going to loose and slowing down when his numbers went up.

I am willing to bet in most cases the layoffs have a high percentage of liberals in it. And even though its against the law to fire a person for their political leaning there is nothing to prevent a company from letting everyone just go, there is no law forcing a company to keep its doors open as well.

I CANNOT believe you posted that! I JUST got off the phone w/ the big boss, who was just checking in on my mental health.

Anywho, he said accountants all over the country are sending out "packages" to people explaining what we can TAKE BACK. At first I protested because I didn't want to be a moocher.

Then he explained "it's not mooching, it's YOUR money and we will find a way to take it back". Also said it's a great way to deplete the moochers "resources" at a quicker pace.

He said we'll be receiving a package in a couple of days from our accountant and we are going to comb through it to see what we can TAKE BACK WHAT WAS OURS IN THE FIRST PLACE!

I'm all for it now. If I'm still working and I can use their commie system against them, I will.

Boss also told me once we figure it out to go ahead and tell everyone on "my blogs", facebook, etc about it and how to do it.

I think he's worried about my mental health, lol.

My brother’s company helped all their employees who qualified to get on Medical for their families health insurance. It was cheaper than their own insurance,but they are also laying off people to get the headcount down for Obama care.

The sheeperals will wonder what hit them,
but to 0bama and his elitist ilk,
this is exactly as it “should be”.

People should depend on the gov’t,
not private capitalist entities,
for their livelihood.

The economy will contract and Obama will usher in a lower standard of living for all.

And that will be neither an accident nor a failure.

It will mark the success of 0bama's agenda. His goal is clearly to put America on a par with his native and beloved Kenya.

He is a communist, the goal of communism is equality in misery ... (except for the party elite).

All animals are equal (but some animals are more equal than others).

Obama needs to get out in front of this or his second term is going to literally implode.

Hence we should prepare ourselves for a truly chilling Venezuela-style public villifcation campaign right out of Atlas Shrugged.

CEO’s of companies announcing mass layoffs are going to be singled out by name and accused of being “unpatriotic” and committing various and assorted crimes. The media will lay into them 24/7 like they are some combination of John Dillinger and OBL. It is not gonna be pretty.

We’re a small business...13 of us. Once barry took over and the economy really started to sink, he had a choice to make. Lay off 1 or 2 people, or everyone takes a hit in hours.

We all took a hit in hours per week. That hurt, but better than losing our job.

So far, we still have insurance. Don’t know how long that will last.

We’re all in for one heck of a ride.

However, depleting the moochers “bounty” sounds like a great idea.
