The Obama birds of prey come home to roost. The blood has only started to flow out of the economic body being crucified by Obama’s Marxists.

To the female voter of America, job losses don’t matter. They want contraceptives and the ‘gay black man father figure fantasy’ thing really got to’em.

I should've been more specific. 'Single female voters'. There.. Better? Or, let me quote Ann Coulter: “Great, you will get free contraception; you won’t have to pay a $10 co-pay, but it will be the end of America. Think about that!” http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/08/09/coulter-obamas-base-is-stupid-single-women/

I should mention that I do not believe 0bama won this election legitimately (without voter fraud).

Ideas are one thing, and what happens is another.
Become a member of the “FUO” society.

Not too bad. In 14 days that’s 6785 a day, unless we knock off the weekends of which there have been two since Nov 6th. Then it comes to 9500 a day. 0bama is right on course.

expect it to get worse after Christmas. Some companies still have a heart and will keep people on through the holidays.

It is just a few of these “Unpatriotic” companies run by Obama haters, you see, that are laying people off. Just an excuse. They had other financial problems, you know.

The “ACA” or Obamacare, as the racist rightwing-nut looney haters call it, is not responsible for any of this. Just these few unpatriotic types, really.

And, likewise, I am sure that the whole Benghazi thing will blow over, really. It was really just about that hateful anti-Islamic video anyway, wasn’t it? </sarcasm>

Surely you didn’t mean to insult half of the FR population? You certainly didn’t describe me.

Think before you type. Please.

Now you’ve insulted all the clean-living God-worshipping single gals who aren’t sluts and don’t run with that crowd.

Might want to hang it up for the night.

You are so right! For some companies, that is probably as long as they are able to go....

That’s a pretty good two weeks for Barry. Let’s see, 50k per week x 52 weeks per year...that’s 2.5 Million per year. About par for Barry’s course.

I should've been more specific. 'Single female voters'. There.. Better?

Not really better...I fall into that category, too, lol. I am in that microscopic group of single, conservative ladies who thinks Big Brother has no place in American society. I was kind of just messing with you last night...I knew what you meant about stupid women electing obama, but I always feel the need on FR lately to pipe up and defend those of us who keep getting lumped in with the birth control/pro-abortion crowd. There are still a few of us conservative single ladies out there and I hate that the majority of women make the decent ones among us look bad. I've gotta speak up for my peeps!! :)

I totally agree with you about the fraud thing, by the way!
