Look at all of these coincidences:

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/how-many-businesses-have-announced-closings-or-lay-offs-since-obama-won-a-second-term/

Did you look at some of the positions lost?  Are you saying that these companies decided to cut jobs because Obama won? Stop jumping to conclusions.  Can you identify whether this was in the companies plan prior to Nov.?  Something tells me you do not have any facts to support these jobs were lost due to Obama winning the election.


Mere coincidences.  All of them.

Assumptions.   You know what they say about assuming.

These are clearly coincidences.  I don't know about the rest.

• Darden Restaurants -

    The company, which was among those who had received an Obamacare waiver in the past, is looking to limit workers to 28 hours per week. A full time employee that is required to have health insurance (lest the employer pay a fine) works 30 hours per week, as defined by the Obamacare law.

 

• West Ridge Mine -

    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.

It is commonly know for years Walmart encourages their employees to request government assistance like food stamps because they don't want to pay insurance. Its amazing who you don't hear about that on the news but will hear anything "Obamacare" related.

Don't forget Publix Supermarkets who have now said that starting in 2013, they will no longer have any full time employees as a direct result of "The Affordable Care Act".

I remember the days when laying off your employees was a somber event and the employer would be too embarrassed to even talk about it publicly let alone issue a statement describing why. Now you have employers running to the media seeing who has the most employees to lay off. What a **CENSORED**ing joke.

religion is answers that may never be questioned

To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II:

In light of your immediate failure to financially manage yourselves and also in recent years your tendency to elect incompetent Presidents of the USA and therefore not able to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. (You should look up ‘revocation’ in the Oxford English Dictionary.)

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except Kansas, which she does not fancy).

Your new Prime Minister, David Cameron, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections.

Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated sometime next year to determine whether any of you noticed.

To aid in the transition to a British Crown dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:

1. The letter ‘U’ will be reinstated in words such as ‘colour,’ ‘favour,’ ‘labour’ and ‘neighbour.’ Likewise, you will learn to spell ‘doughnut’ without skipping half the letters, and the suffix ‘-ize’ will be replaced by the suffix ‘-ise.’Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels. (look up ‘vocabulary’).

2. Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as ”like’ and ‘you know’ is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as U.S. English. We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take into account the reinstated letter ‘u' and the elimination of ‘-ize.’

3. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.

4. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers, or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you’re not quite ready to be independent. Guns should only be used for shooting grouse. If you can’t sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist, then you’re not ready to shoot grouse.

5. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. Although a permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.

6. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left side with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables. Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour.

7. The former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline) of roughly $10/US gallon. Get used to it.)

8.You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.

9. The cold, tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager. New Zealand beer is also acceptable, as New Zealand is pound for pound the greatest sporting nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of the British Commonwealth – see what it did for them. American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat’s Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.

God Save the Queen.

As for the Benghazi coverup, that's what it is, enough has been leaked out that we pretty much know what happened and didn't happen. Either the President was in the "Situation Room" and chose to do nothing to help the Ambassador and the Seals there or his staff didn't communicate what was happening to him and he wasn't aware of what was going on. Either way, shows a lack of competency in our President.


How can you say that?  You have acknowledged that some info has been leaked but is it enough to convict or judge someone?  The President appoints people in positions are they not responsible for their choices?  I did not know that the President is responsible for everything that happens.  I guess you can blame him for Iran gaining that drone?  He is the president and he should have known better.  Cmon!  You are jumping to conclusions with lack of information.  What is done is done.  And no one can bring back those who lost their lives in Benghazi, but instead of pointing fingers at ourselves bickering, why don't we use this energy to catch those responsible and learn how to prevent this problem from happening.  But NO lets bicker over some more because you know what people rather argue than work together.  There is not fun in doing the tough/hard work.

BTW- do you consider SSI a social program?  And if so, what do you do with those on it and those who are paying into the program?

It's not a social program , it's a f*cking Ponzi scheme . By it's very definition:
"A Ponzi scheme is an investment fraud that involves the payment of purported returns to existing investors from funds contributed by new investors."
http://www.sec.gov/answers/ponzi.htm

Social security was sold to the American people by telling us we would all contribute to a personal "lockbox" until our retirement , at which time the money would be ours. Instead the money has all been spent on horsesh!t , and all current recepients of SSI are being paid with the money the CURRENT contributors are putting in. They continue to move back the age in which you are illegibile to collect YOUR money , and they don't give you the amount you paid in....they give you the least amount they arbitrarily deem you can survive on.

We accept this outright theft under the guise of social compassion. What a f*cking joke.

What should be done ? Allow the people who are currently dependent on the scam to stay on it. Allow everyone else the oppurtunity to opt out if they so choose ( personal choice ! oh the horror ! ). Then throw the bureaucrats in charge of the ponzi scheme in jail right next to Bernie Maddoff.

Wake the hell up America , you morons.

You know it is all Regan's fault - he is the biggest spender of all time... or is it Bush... so hard to tell. 

And the layoffs - let's just hope that activity levels off. It is all up to Barry and the Dems.

Quote from: bayfisher
America is bowing down to the welfare empire.
  Thats part of what I'm trying to say too.  The future is shaping up to be a battle between the populist's and fiscal conservatives.  The only things that can stop a Hillary presidency in 2016 is either a complete economic collapse or a broader coalition in the republican party.  Unless you are one of the dwindling christian right or a neocon you have nothing to fear from these people.  Bring them into the tent or see real socialism because anyone who thinks the real agenda of the democratic party is not to encourage eventual socialism is fooling themselves.  Civil liberties should be an intregal part of the republican platform if republicans want to have a voice in shaping this country in the future.

You people are f-ing nuts. You Randians want to know why Libertarianism is doomed to fail? Take a look in the mirror.

I disagree with a lot of you on here. I think you should be able to vote for whoever the hell you want. You got a voice and it should be heard. If you dont like the R or D you should vote for whoever you want. Its not a wasted vote. Your voicing your opinion. Its one of the few chances we get to do so with politics. What else can you do besides vote?? Not much but get into politics yourself and go from there. In the end though, I believe it really didnt matter who won this. I believe Obama or Romney(if he won) just would have been puppets to something much bigger going on. Yea its speculation, something Im unable to prove, or could be just downright wrong. Its just something that would not surprise me.
The problem with your ideal is that if there truly is a party that can help with a third party it could really weaken the stronger party needed and have the other side win. Thats why I am against voting for a minor party that has no way of winning...OBD

The only problem with this ideal is that neither Dem or Rep can ever be called the stronger party. Why should a country of 300 million have a choice of two worthless candidates to run the country? It's hilarious that Americans are this stupid when it comes to something this important. Wonder why third parties have no choice? Because the majority of American voters are clueless and vote only on who kissed their ass the most. Democrats and Republicans have both put their hands in ruining the country yet we should just keep voting for these idiots, great idea

I asked three times and no one can name the Reform Party candidate from this year without looking it up.  There are reasons why third parties will never be. I can't imagine many of them having anything to do with the average voter.

Why do you ask a question and then answer it yourself? I have a problem with that because it shows that you will not accept any answer except your own. Thus most would have voted for any Republican that hadn't chosen a Tea Party affiliation. But in either case Obama won and did so with the majority of the popularity vote and Electoral College. Ever ask why? Was it the internet and the vast research capabilities it possess to check and recheck.

Ron Paul did himself in and most seen that on National Television. Romney did himself in straying from Reagan ideologies and allow a extreme group called the Tea Party and with Grove Norquist trying to tilt the voted Politicians to side with the few through a pledge and not those who voted them in. We need to go back to the center of the GOP but first get rid of the extremist in each party and just maybe just glean portions of what they say that really benefit all of America and not just the 1 percent...OBD
