The layoffs have only just begun; when will they end?

It didn’t take long. The layoffs and closings are piling up. The saddest thing about compiling this list is that by the time today is over, the list will probably have grown dramatically.

The next saddest part is that at least some of these lay off employees voted for Barack Obama because they didn’t believe this would happen. These are more than just headlines. Every number represents real people who have lost their livelihood.

The goal is not health care, the goal is to overwhelm the system.

Mission accomplished!

MERRY CHRISTMAS...MY FIRST CARD OF THE YEAR..
Christmas
I love Christmas lights. They remind me of the people who voted for Obama.
They all hang together; half of them don’t work, and the ones that do,
aren’t all that bright.
For those who understand, no explanation is needed. For those who do not
understand, no explanation is possible.

There will be plenty of new jobs in the future.

A lot of companies are going to split their 40 hour jobs into two 20 hour jobs to avoid Obamacare.

My firm laid-off seven longtime employees on Friday. We are a small company with less than 200 employees. Interesting that none of the Ivy League managing directors lost their jobs.

Doesn’t work they will add the number of part time hours worked so two part time workers at 20 hours each will count as one full time.

System is overwhelmed.

The black market, underground economy, barter and trade, back-alley trade, whatever you want to call it, shall become the base of the economy in coming months and perhaps years. A LOT of business will be “off the books”, so as not to be subject to taxation, and a goodly portion of production of hard goods will take place in people’s garages and back yards.

For pointers on how to do this, look up old copies of “The Mother Earth News”. They started out as “environmentalists”, but they were also very much into “screwing the Man”. Which means, tax avoidance (a different thing than tax evasion, by the way), which has the secondary effect of denying revenue to the Federal Government. Starve the beast, live off the grid, and it shall wither on the vine.

Of course, the folks at Ruby Ridge and the Branch Davidians of Waco had something of the same idea, and you know what AG Janet Reno did to THOSE people.

Semper Paratus. And this does not just apply to the Coast Guard.

First steps of nationalization. Demonize the producers by destroying their ability to produce, and blaming it on them. That’s the whole goal here. Energy, food, industry, finance; all of these are under attack right now, with players on both sides involved. If we’re lucky, we’ll become Argentina, if not, we become a spitting image of china. Don’t think it can happen here? Think again, it’s already started.

Don’t understand your comment. A lot of companies are doing it already:

The companies themselves and people like the “Ivy League managing directors” in this case will be demonized and blamed, instead of the blame being place squarely where it belongs- on Obama and the progressive agenda.

It’s just another opportunity to wage class warfare against the folks who do produce jobs. This can’t work in a capitalistic system. When overhead increases, and the cost cannot be passed along to the consumer (ie- Obamacare) jobs and wages must be cut. Or the entire business goes down.

>>Sadly the list continues.<<

The sad part is that they are not all obozo voters.

The ones who DID vote for him can go to hell. I hope they and their families have a miserable Christmas and they can steep in the evil juices of their “victory.”

They can try mandating something like that, but it will be even worse. Take the restaurant industry. They have to fight costs hard. If Obama mandates that two 20 hour employees are really one 40 hour employee, they will fire the extra employee. They will have to pay the ObamaCare plan, which means they will have to pass the costs onto the customer. When the costs are passed on, food prices will rise and people will refuse to eat out and stay home to cook for themselves. Then the restaurant industry will collapse, except for the few luxury dining places where food costs really don't matter.

Maybe the biggest reason for these layoffs is:

I remember reading a while ago that the employee number Hussein's healthcare will use to force healthcare on employers, will be the number of employees in early 2013, even though it starts in 2014 - companies have to report the number to the govn. in early 2013. That will be the employee number the IRS will use for fines if the company doesn't give the employees healthcare.

So, companies are dumping employees now before reporting time so their number will be less.

This is their plan. To limit small business from growing and expanding so government can run larges businesses and the voting sheeple step right in line.

I’ve seen serveral cars sporting “I love ObamaCare”

Idiots.

The ones who DID vote for him will not have to travel to go to hell. Obama and his extremist followers will do their best to turn the United States into hell within four years.

“A LOT of business will be “off the books”, so as not to be subject to taxation...”

Hence, the need for IRS agents to have a LOT of ammo.

I believe it is by March 2013 that companies have to report their numbers. IIRC

This is just going to destroy small businesses, there is absolutely no incentive to growing your company beyond a certain size anymore.
