The Free Republic "Elections Have Consequences" Repository
Self | 8 November 2012 | ScottinVA

Posted on 11/08/2012 10:08:08 AM PST by ScottinVA

Fellow FReepers -- This is designed to serve as a single repository for layoff announcements, stories and other related news pertaining to the future dismantling of our economy due to the re-election of Barack Obama. The goal here is a one-stop source to bolster our argument that Obama's reelection is truly the detriment to our economic well-being.

My sister got laid off wednesday. Last day Friday.

She was working for 5 months as a temp in a medicare payments admin
firm.

I’m sure it was they saw the writing on the wall.

She is applying for another temp opening somewhere else.

I see no need to bolster your argument that obama is a detriment to our economic well-being. Most everyone here agrees.

The people that missed the message before the election or did not care will never participate in such a discussion.

Yup, I was obamasized (no need to capitalize the ‘o’).
Company consolidating and moving part of the operation overseas.

Ready to collect SSI with virtually no debt; will wind up on Medicare too when qualified.

Moving to cash only whenever possible; no visible income.

This is intended to drive home the point that we were right all along... for those fools outside of the FR world that thought somehow reelecting Obama was somehow going to make it all better.

One thing is becoming clear post-election - the charge that by electing Obama half of the country are voting themselves goodies courtesy of the other half REALLY seems to bug the left.

So naturally its time to drive the blade in and twist. This needs to be the meme until everyone associates democrat constituencies as the parasites they are.

My employer laid off 34 of 189 employees and dropped another 45 down to part-time hours. I’m one of the ones dropped to part-time, but I figure that 28-30 hours is better than nothing.

Copy of my previous post in another thread
==================================
I work for a company that provides technology services for healthcare practices, labs and hospitals. Late Wed morning we got notice from 2 mid-size practices that they were closing down completely and today we just got another. I know there were more than a few this year who have stated that they are holding out hope for an Obama defeat so I expect quite a few more. The physicians have had enough of the cuts in medicare and tax increases, it’s just not worth it to them to work anymore. Believe it or not, the margins aren’t huge for these places, especially the family practices. So far this week it looks like around 25 physicians and somewhere around 60-70 support staff have lost their jobs and we lost the clients. As this grows larger, we will be letting some people go as well. Christmas is not going to be pleasant this year, that’s for certain.

It’s a good idea, but we should face one disturbing fact:

Most of the people that voted for Obama are uninterested in a strong economy. Like Obama himself, they are egalitarians who approve of special interest-group “identity politics” and demand “social justice”; i.e., they demand that the law — which is supposed to treat all people equally — treat different groups of people unequally — each group with its own “special” grievances and demands — for the sake of obtaining a preconceived desired “social outcome.”

I find it very disturbing that most Americans today simply don’t want freedom. They claim that they want security but they don’t understand the necessary relation between the latter and the former.

Devon Energy Obamasized the Houston office of 500. Fewer than half were offered transfers to OKC.

This occurred on October 11. Yes, before the election, but just, and our company was assuming Obama would win.

7 million white voters stayed home on November 6th, just to show they were not racist voting against America’s first black president.

Don't believe that. Maybe that how many were not COUNTED, but don't think they stayed home, or there weren't that many to begin with.

Mostly anecdotal. Several commentaries from liberal pundits I've heard, a concern troll post today from a brand new member, some soundbites Limbaugh ran from commentators reacting to his Santa Claus comments.

This plus the hysteria caused by Romney's 47% statement from last May.

The fact that people are voting their own economic self interests basically takes away the liberal high road they've been winning on for decades. Truth is its all about crass self interests, worse its about envy & sloth.

We need to repeat this over & over. What do we have to lose?

Let’s see how this really goes.

The more people laid off by private industry, the more they turn to government to survive and vote Democrat. When people make a good living working for private industry, they vote Republican. Hiring works out better.

Rush talked about it today. He made a comment yesterday about the looter-class voting for “Santa Claus” and the enemedia went insane. Frothing at the mouth, libtard-style hate-filled “news” about the remark.

Yeah, they’re p*ssed that that truth was spoken...
