Let the layoffs begin! Or: You get what you vote for

Elections have consequences. We tried to tell you that, DUmmies. Governor Romney tried to tell you that. He said that Obamacare would be a jobs-killer. But did you believe him? Did you believe us? NOOO!! Well, guess what? Now that your beloved Barack managed to come up with enough votes in Florida, Ohio, and Virginia to get his sorry ass re-elected--which means that Obamacare now will not be reversed in the foreseeable future--guess what has started to happen, even starting the day after the election? That's right. Let the layoffs begin! You see, DUmmies, you get what you vote for.

The DUmmies are STUNED that such a thing could happen, as we see in this THREAD, "Vegas Employer: Obama Won–So I Fired 22 Employees." That evil, evil employer! How DARE he try to stay in business, much less make a profit! The dopes in DUmmieland cannot seem to make the connection that when the government increases the cost of doing business, either the business will try to find ways to compensate or else the business will go out of business. Duh! Or, I should say, DUh!

So let us now enter the world of the dense-headed denizens of the DUmp, in Bread Line Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson--telling the DUmmies, "Obama Recession Part Two? You OWN it!"--is in the [brackets]:

Vegas Employer: Obama Won–So I Fired 22 Employees

[What Obamacare does in Las Vegas, ends in lost wages.]

A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today, apparently as a direct result of President Obama’s re-election. . . . "I explained to them a month ago that if Obama gets in office that the regulations for Obamacare are gonna hurt our business, and I’m gonna have to make provisions to make sure I have enough money to cover the payroll taxes, the additional health care I’m gonna have to do. . . ."

[Wow. Who could have seen this coming? Why, as a matter of fact, WE did. And we told you. But did you listen?]

Wow, just... wow. No words.

[Wow, just . . . two words: Obama. Care.]

Doubt this is even true. . . .

[If I pretend hard enough this didn't happen, then . . . it didn't happen!]

Will probably be hearing lots more of these "scary" stories in the next few weeks. . . .

[Try, the next few DAYS.]

I'd like to see a headline...that reads...Business Owner - "Obama won so I hired 22+ people"

[I hear the repo companies are hiring.]

Like he'd ever have 22 people he didn't actually need to run his business. . . .

if he fired 22, that would be because of waste.... unneeded employment.

[Or--now follow me on this--he could handle those 22 employees BEFORE, but NOW, because of the added cost of Obamacare, he has to scale back. Have you considered that? I know, that requires thinking, and thinking is hard. . . .]

I suspect Mr. X's business is located at the base of Bullsh*t Mountain.

[No, actually, it's located at the base of Costs Mountin'.]

Your employer can dump you anytime they want. Unless you are union you are one minute away from your last paycheck if your boss decides it is so. Without Obama Care you and your family are sh*t out of luck. I think he just illustrated why the ACA is so important.

[So let me see if I follow you on this. . . . Obamacare's costs may cause your employer to lay you off. In which case, you'll be out of work and . . . and you'll need Obamacare! Yes, just brilliant!]

most of obamacare not even underway yet, so this is pure BS. . . .

[Yes, pure BS! Whoever heard of a businessman planning ahead, taking steps to meet a looming crisis? That's just crazy!]

when you own a business, you do what you gotta do to survive.


F the employer, the employees make the bussiness mostly anyway. . . .

[Who needs employers anyway? Employees can just employ themselves!]

No law has changed from yesterday to today.

[Hello!! Earth to DUmmie! What HAS changed is the chance of Obamacare being repealed in the near future. Is this too hard for you? You ARE able to tie your shoes, aren't you?]



If an employer says that they have to cut back the number of employees as a business decision, they are free to do that. . . . His public reason why was because since Obama won, he needed to cut expenses now in order to be prepared for higher expenses later.

[But, but . . . IT'S NOT FAIR!!! WAAAHHHH!!!!]

his explanation for the firings was not that they were politically based, but were based on his belief that health care reform will adversely impact his bottom line and that, given the results of the election, that isn't going to change.

[It finally looks like comprehension is beginning to set in.]

What a POS.

[I know. Obama really is a-- No, wait. I think you're referring to the business owner.]

I call total and utter BS on the entire story. . . . I could call my local talk radio and claim to be the Cat God Bastet (from ancient Egypt). Wouldn't make it true.

[No, of course not. We all know you're really the Moonbat Goddess DUmeter (from ancient Babbleloonia).]

What an @sshole!!!!


If this is true, his ability to do MORE business has just been curtailed. And the employees he has left are going to be overburdened and may burn out.

[By George, I think you're beginning to get it! . . . Which reminds me. This must be Bush's fault. Yep, Obamacare is Bush's fault.]

Needs his business confiscated. Since he can't run it properly and uses it to punish his employees, he shouldn't be allowed to own it. The State or City needs to confiscate under eminent domain and give it to someone responsible who will show more concern for the community.

[DUmmie TRJuan (14 posts), while I appreciate the effort, and that's CLOSE to what a real DUmmie might say, I think you're being just a LITTLE too over the top to not be spotted as a LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!! Nice try, though!]

sorry, but that's just ridiculous. . . .

[See what I mean?]

There were reports of this from other states on Freerepublic. None of them had enough information to research at all, so it's all just bullsh*t to try and scare Obama supporters.

[Actually, DUmmie Kablooie, the reports of massive layoffs, from multiple businesses, have now started to POUR in, from all across the country.]

Translation: I am a sh*tty businessman who's failed and is now scapegoating the black guy.

[Translation of DUmmie post: When all else fails, play the race card.]

Looks like another one is making excuses. . . . EAST CARBON, Carbon County — A Utah coal company owned by a vocal critic of President Barack Obama has laid off 102 miners. The layoffs at the West Ridge Mine are effective immediately. . . . They were announced in a short statement made public Thursday, two days after Obama won re-election. The layoffs are necessary because of the president's "war on coal," the statement said. . . . In its statement, UtahAmerican Energy blames the Obama administration for instituting policies that will close down "204 American coal-fired power plants by 2014" and for drastically reducing the market for coal.

[Obama is out to destroy the coal industry. Obama wins the election. Coal company takes measures to deal with the impending crisis. But, no, it's just "making excuses."]

[And so it begins: Layoffs. Reductions in force. Cutbacks in hours. Loss of benefits. We warned you. But, hey, you wanted to make sure Ol' Mattressback, Sandra Fluke, could get her free birth control! So thanks, DUmmies! Thanks for playing . . . YOU VOTED FOR IT!]

I've been hearing a lot of crap from Troglaman Clones/Moonbats about these layoffs.

Just shows how terminally and deliberately stupid these idiots are. They are told in no uncertain terms what will happen if they do something and they basically give the middle finger salute and do it anyway. We are literally dealing with full grown adults who function like a 6 year old.

1) Because 1/2 of America learned how to be a Marxist throughout their entire education.

There is no way a majority of people who use their heads for other than a fucking hat rack "enthusiastically" voted to fuck themselves and fuck over the whole country right along with them. The did what your god, Obama demanded - voted for revenge. They stupidly figured you can screw the rich and make their lives better and create uptopia....ain't happening because it never has and never will.

They think these layoffs are for revenge but I wonder how many of these layoffs could have been delayed so as to not hurt the president's election chances.

I'd imagine most are because these businesses now know that the ACA has zero chance of repeal now and the business unfriendly leaders in DC remain.

Are there more layoffs than jobs being created? No.

And besides that, you ingrown toenails, you LIKE shipping jobs over-seas. Need I remind you?

On a unrelated note, our Seahawks are a little better than mediocre this year but are they ever so much fun to watch. We've got one of those young teams that, when they get going, can really light it up. Love it win or lose.

But why not just make shit up, believe it, then go from there? A formula for success.

Has it occurred to you, flatscreen, that if I were a black person reading your comment, I'd think you a mondo douche bag? Do you find that a reasonable response to what you're saying? How can you not?

This is precisely the problem. You don't fucking care. It shows.

You're a poster-boy...a personification of why you stupid morons are setting yourself up to lose elections forever more. Why? Because if you don't think you're coming off like a swaggering, red-necked thumb-plug, your lack of self-awareness becomes staggering.

"The nation's employers added 171,00 positions in October."

Not good enough, not nearly good enough---as you know. Hey, dickhead, the nation also added over 400,000 food stamp recipients in August for an all-time record of 47.1 recipients. Not a sign of a robust ecnonomy.

Care to dispute that? You probably shouldn't.

"Not good enough, not nearly good you know." kat

Not good enough for you.

How many jobs were we losing during the last month of W's tenure? Were you bitching then? No. Wasn't that the last time you jackasses were running things?

"A sobering U.S. Labor Department jobs report Friday showed the economy lost 524,000 jobs in December (2008) and 1.9 million in the year's final four months."

Know what? That wasn't good enough for me and the rest of the country.

Neither was the stock market dipping into the 6000's and wiping out people's retirements. More people on food-stamps? What a surprise!!!

This is where Obama started. This is the base line.

For the last 30 months or so, the jobs gained have out-weighed the jobs lost. The market is in the 12000's. But it's "...not good enough, not nearly good enough" you would fucking know how to speed things up.

Here's a clue - Doing exactly what fucked us up in the first place WON'T WORK.

Obama is incrementally making things better, with no help from you assholes, after W made things spectacularly bad. I'll go with that instead of your idiotic, provably wrong solutions. And so will the rest of the people who elected him to a second term.

Breathtakingly Stupid Monkeys you are.

I told you from the beginning that you were going to do our heavy lifting for us. And you did. We didn't win this contest. You lost it.

Get used to it.

"Obama is incrementally making things better."

If you said excrementally, I'd agree with you.

1) Stock market down 600 points in the last two weeks, a 5% loss.

2) 47.1 million people on food stamps (something you conveniently overlook).

3) Unemployment rate at 8% for the past 46 months, an all-time, post-WWII record. If you include people who have stopped looking for work or are working part-time only, thae actual rate is closer to 15%.

4)National poverty rate over 15%.

5)The national debt grew by $6 trillion in the past four years to$16 trilllion and will grow by another $4 to $6 trillion by 2016. How will we repay $20 trillion?
Hint: we won't, we can't, look for inflation down the road, it's already started.

6) Another recession pending and no Bush around.

Time for Obama and breathtakingly ignorant assholes like you to take responsibility for the failures.

Obama is incrementally wrecking the nation, and the only person he can blame is himself.

...and people like you who voted for him.

Federal spending on welfare was $798 billion in 2008, rose to $1,076 billion in 2012 and is projected to rise to $1,374 by 2016. 17 million households currently recieve payments.

Speaking of increments.

It just keeps getting worse.

The federal deficit for the month of October (the first month of FY 2013) was $120 BILLION.

Multiply that number by twelve for a good estimate of the coming year's deficit. How long can this continue?

Not very much longer.

None of this is over yet. It's never over. Battling moronic jackasses is an eternal, never-ending struggle worthy of only the few and the proud (like that, jarhead?).

Would you agree, kat, that there's a trend toward electing primary candidates in your party that can't win general elections? If you don't agree, you're a potato (a widely popular root crop).

This is a problem, whether you think so or not.

There's no surrender on your part about widely unpopular issues you continue to support. Simple as that. Keep it up.

I honestly think that if there isn't some creatively atomic idea that occurs to one of you chimpanzees pretty soon, you're toast...for a long time.

I find it interesting that you were unable to gainsay any of the points I made.

"None of this is over yet."

As the economy continues to deteriorate and the deficit grows to astronomical heights---it soon will be.

A $120 billion deficit in the month of October, think about it.
How many more months can this continue before even a brussel sprout like you wakes up.
