Since Obama has been re-elected we have lost 4 businesses in my town in all. Carter Lumber as mentioned above, a bargain outlet store something akin to Big Lots called Grandview, Carquest Autoparts and a 2nd hand store I loved to peruse called Re-Use Industries have all closed now.
Add to that I just talked to a plumber who was doing some work at our building and he informed me there business is barely operating and they went from 15 employees last Summer down to three as of November 2012 and he has been told if business don't pick up that he will be laid off at the end of February.
Just talked to a real good friend last night who is a Certified Electrician and System Control Tech (he works on controls and switching for large manufacturing and industrial equipment as well as all levels of electrical work) and he told me he has been given notice that his company is shutting down at the end of February and will hopefully be calling people back in May or June. He said they have never totally shut down before BUT many of their clients are coal mines in and around the Ohio Valley and most of these have cut mining operations down to the nub.
Yet I've heard things are getting better and the economy is fine. Well that may be true outside of Southern Ohio but here its getting worse fast. Crime is climbing at alarming rate. Lots of B&E's and Pillbillies stealing stuff for fast cash. Just had our AC unit vandalized last week. They cut the lines to it thinking they could lift it out of the cage we have around it outside. They were trying to get it while stealing 4 other units in the buildings on either side of us.
One of the places they stole AC units from was a coin shop located right next door. This is the third time he has been robbed of his AC units. The owner is still recovering from the beating he took when some asswipes robbed his store at the end of last year. The guy is 80 years old and they beat him in the head with a crow bar and fractured his skull. They finally caught one of the alleged punks with some of the goods in his government subsidized apartment. He gets his healthcard and food stamps and yes he even had his FREE Obama phone as well, the cops informed me of this when they were down to do the Police Report on our AC unit.
Makes me feel all tingly inside knowing my tax dollars helped to keep an Obamazombie in a nice apartment and kept him fed and in good health so he could devote all his time to beating up 80 plus year old store owners. My Dad is that age and spends his days running our flooring store. He now keeps his shotgun loaded and within arms reach while he is it the store.
But as we say around here now: "That's just business as usual here in the Obamanation!"
A number of the people who do that have under the table income to make it work. If you have a skill you can sell that's usually done by high-priced union labor, you are in better shape.
Hang tough brother. It’s hard. I worked for a small company of 19 people that was sold just this last year. It’s not pretty out there on the streets and what’s sad is the low information voters believe the lies...
“Anybody who thinks the economy is recovering is a sheltered being.”
Specifically government workers, or those that don’t participant in the economy anyway (permanent underclass).
The printing industry in my area has been hit hard. I was a broker among other services offered, photography, design, mailing, digital, web. Had to shut down in 2008, went to work for a customer.
A printer I’d known and worked with 20 years shut down suddenly late last year, they were hanging on, waiting for better times since 2008. Just couldn’t rationalize keeping the doors open anymore.
Another in southern Virginia I’ve worked with for over a decade, the longtime owner lost his (very nice) house to personal bankruptcy, he’s putting his all into keeping the company going.
Another, who specializes in digital printing, owns his office building outright and is living there to keep himself afloat. Down to one employee, himself. Barely making it.
I don’t see this turning around any time soon. We’re in far worse shape now than we were when this first hit in late 2007 to early 2008.
I worried that I had panicked and overreacted when I shut down and took a job, but in hindsight it’s looking like he who panics first panics best.
“The media has been lying to us about EVERYTHING. I consider the media and the democrats a bigger threat to our country than the terrorists..... at least we can kill the terrorists.”
You’re right; that is why I don’t advocate sending Americans ANYWHERE overseas to combat “evil”. The evil is here, and Obama is doing much more damage than a “nuclear Iran” will ever do. Our way of life has been destroyed over the past four years (not “being destroyed”; it has been destroyed), and I see no way we ever return to an era where people take the slightest responsibility for their actions.
If women and sexual deviants want to fight the Muslims, go for it; I don’t see Muslims as the same threat as the government that is sending the freak show there is. Considering how dangerous Muslims are, that is saying a lot.
“I witnessed a junior 27 year old engineer, several years out of college, who recently bought a house, and a car, who goes skiing once a month, seriously ask his peers, who were 20 years his senior, if monogamy didnt challenge a life in marriage.”
That is part of the post-Christian America; in another ten years he’ll be fighting for the right to pull the plug on those older peers because they cost too much.
The Axis lost WWII; the Nazis won.
“Then I see a cart ahead of me with cart fully loaded with groceries. Then they whip out an EBT card to pay!”
I’ve seen the same thing; they’ll have welfare-bonus children pushing additional carts like draft animals. One of the last things keeping white Americans voting Democrat is the fact that they don’t want blacks to stop aborting their children.
“Crime is climbing at alarming rate. Lots of B&E’s and Pillbillies stealing stuff for fast cash.”
It certainly is climbing along the frontier of the Newark Welfare Reservation here in northern NJ; the raiding parties are getting more brazen as their cities deteriorate even faster (less working people have money to spend subsidizing the zoo). I believe that, more than a larger political vision, is why so many people are buying guns. Here in NJ we’ve laid off thousands of cops (especially in cities, where they were never using their own revenues to pay them); because of the union work rules, the last hired were the first let go, so we now have smaller, older, more expensive cops....
If you’re anywhere near a major through route to and from any sort of urban concentration, a locked cage around the A/C unit or heat pump is a good investment. I know several small landlords who have been hit multiple times, one house hit three times by itself. Always when unoccupied, yep, on a through route. Raiding parties as you said.
Ping for you.
So what are all of you seeing in your own areas?
Business last year(2012)for me was up 64% on the year!
Business compared Jan. 2012 to 2013...still up 25%!
Trying how to hire at least two part-time employees.
Are businesses shutting down?
Short answer is ...yes! Even though my own business growth is great...overall picture is still sour.
Are people having a hard time finding good jobs?
Yes, people are having a hardtime finding good jobs. I have clients that have been looking for over 6 months, some are going back to school for advanced degrees instead. Not sure that is the wisest choice given the outlook, but it is their lives, not mine.
Black market labor and let's not forget dealing drugs. I have been advertising for help for several months. Nature of my business often means I hire temp. help or independents. I have had a number of folks turn down the jobs when they find out our state required I report them as new hires....even as contractors to be filed on 1099's.
Black market labor force is starting to really operate and push back on the economy. While they may not want to give up their benefits to work, they don't want to pay their fair share either if they do take a job.
Where is the author using selective statistics? He has simply looked at the actual numbers that the BLS has published and that are ignored by the main stream media. That is the point of the article"actual unemployment numbers are not being reported". And please save your, economics 101 lessons. Significant unemployment, means lower GDP. One more quarter of lower GDP and we are officially in a recession!
Good article. I try and tell people around me this from time to time and they don’t want to hear it. Actually my area has seen a great influx of new businesses in the last few years. Many new restaurants and retail stores so there’s a decent amount of jobs available here, not the best paying jobs but they are jobs.
>One of the last things keeping white Americans voting Democrat is the fact that they dont want blacks to stop aborting their children.
Are there any numbers on how many of these abortions are performed yearly?
We’re fortunate in that although we are sandwiched between Newark and Jersey City, we have two rivers which serve as moats. They can get in & out, but their escape routes are limited.
Any time people around me see “likely perps”, they just call the police (and the police respond to shoo them away); NJ is so segregated that “likely perps” stand out like sore thumbs.
I don't know that number but I've read that 70% of all Black pregnacies end in abortion.
I saw the same thing yesterday. Several sticks of sausage, four boxes of Velveeta, two bottles of Pace hot sauce, several boxes of wheat thins and some other crackers, five or six cans of salted nuts and out comes the EBT card. Can you say Super Bowl party?
After he swipes the card, the cashier asks the guy "Do you need any extra cash?" Guy gets $40.00 cash to probably buy beer at the liquor store down the street. Just sickening.
