I am not amused by all the sudden layoff announcements now that the election is over. If they are laying people off because of Obama and say so, that’s different, but any company that held off on layoffs to avoid embarrassing Obama is going on my permanent boycott list. I actually use GroupOn and Energizer, or used to. They are now joining GM, Chrysler, and so many other crony capitalist companies - permanently dead to me. We are in a state of at least economic war, and I will use my financial weapons every single day. GroupOn and Energizer are Obama’s allies, which makes them America’s enemies. I do not in any way support my enemies.

I will continue to track these layoffs that were clearly planned before the election but held until afterwords and add those companies to my permanent boycott list. Note: I buy several hundred dollars worth of batteries annually in case of emergency, and on Thanksgiving weekend I replace them and donate the year-old batteries to local children's hospitals to power toys for the kids in recovery. This year's purchase will not be Energizer. I'm also dropping my Cigna medical insurance for the same reason and switching to another carrier (new carrier to be decided in the next week or so).
