as Obamacare becomes reality

Washington Times, by Kerry Picket

Freedom Works has put together a list of companies that will be laying off employees as a result of President Barack Obama´s health care law: Welch Allyn - Welch Allyn, a company that manufactures medical diagnostic equipment in central New York, announced in September that they would be laying off 275 employees, or roughly 10% of their workforce over the next three years. One of the major reasons discussed for the layoffs was a proactive response to the Medical Device Tax mandated by the new healthcare law.

70 million on medicaid

48 million on food stamps

10 million on social security disability

Now, that makes a Democrat smile.

I spent many years as a libertarian, but this has actually turned me against these companies and I will be boycotting them, starting with Applebees.

My family has a small business. We have always provided healthcare. It´s not that freaking hard. You penalize your growth to a degree, and since and owner usually gets paid by percentage of growth, you penalize yourself as an individual, but NOT your profit. The acceleration is slowed, but you don´t suddenly become unprofitable.

If you aren´t paying your employees enough to afford it on their own (about $6K a year for a single), than you never could afford to have that many people, or that much business in the first place. Under our current system, you were basically making the taxpayers pick up *your expense* just as if you hired an illegal. You were actually supporting a very expensive form of single payer by offloading your burden.

The jobs reports in the coming months, leading up to BO´s re-inauguration will be disastrous. The media has no reason to hide the numbers anymore since their messiah has been safely reelected. I wonder, will THESE jobs numbers be blamed on Bush? Just a rhetorical question, of course.

This just shows how little jobs were as an election issue.I understand women being offended by some idiotic rape comments by a couple of loons but to sacrifice the very existence of our country in lieu of such comments is moronic and suicide on the payment plan.

Obama´s war on business was created to create an environment where people would demand the government to step in and create jobs out of thin air.The problem is people don´t care about working anymore when there´s tons of alternative ways of surviving.

Women are the breadwinners even if it´s government bread and men are happy to sponge off them. Just another liberal creation where there´s no shame attached to such behavior.

Talk to parents who can´t get their kids out of the house to find a job. Instead the kids sleep all day and play on the internet all night.Plus they can´t pass a drug screening for a job anyway because they´re addicted to pot,that the left says isn´t an addictive drug.

Good luck to parents in Col. and Or. where pot is legal now.Watch the workforce participation in those states drop like a rock.

Social conservatives are now supposed to sit down and shut up when they´re the ones who will pick up the tab for liberal lunacy.

Tax those greedy workers more so that each of the welfare recipients can receive the average 60K of federal benefits per year. The producers are villains while the recipients are victims. How is this policy viable with 16 trillion debt and the population incentivized to stop working. Obama is redistributing the wealth from the poor to the rich welfare recipients. What a leader!

One of the companies listed on page 2 is Kroger. The Kroger chain of food stores is unionized even in right to work states like Georgia.

Almost all the store employees are female since they can work shifts which are friendly to them while kids are in school, etc.

So how do these women feel now?

The non-union Publix chain is not laying off, yet.

Obama is going to issue an executive order making it illegal to layoff anyone that voted for him. So for all of those hoping for only dems losing their jobs - well good try!

The looney lefties have started digital harassment campaigns against the CEOs of these companies, as well as boycotts. No business - no jobs - No products and services. They are mentally and emotionally misformatted! They will become harassers, snitches and then oppressors taking our stuff for their own, imprisoning and killing us. Hyenas, filthy hyenas.

It´s Final -- Corn
Ethanol Is Of No Use
Forbes, by James Conca    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 4/21/2014 7:01:43 AM     Post Reply
OK, can we please stop pretending biofuel made from corn is helping the planet and the environment? With huge subsidies for ethanol in gasoline, with all States now selling gasoline having some ethanol blend, and a general misconception that these biofuels are green, corn ethanol has taken on a $30 billion/yr life of its own. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released two of its Working Group reports at the end of last month (WGI and WGIII), and their short discussion of biofuels has ignited a fierce debate as to whether they’re of any environmental benefit at all.

It´s all happening at the zoo today, Easter Sunday in Sydney, where Prince George met a cute little critter named for him and the world got to see the royal baby for a second official appearance. After Easter services at the Anglican cathedral in Sydney in the morning, Prince William and Duchess Kate changed clothes, collected George and headed for the Taronga Zoo, Sydney´s harbor-side menagerie of Australia´s wonderfully quirky wildlife. It was another beautiful sunny day and thousands had been waiting to see them for hours before the zoo opened. Eventually there were so many people, the zoo closed to further

NEW YORK - Last week´s Heartbleed Internet bug revealed a startling fact. The software protecting banks, email, social media and government is maintained by only a few people. They´re all volunteers. And only one does it as a full-time job. Their labor of love is OpenSSL, a free program that secures a lot of online communication. And it was a tiny coding slip-up two years ago that caused the Heartbleed bug, a hole that allows attackers to peer into computers. The bug forced emergency changes last week at major websites like Facebook (FB, Fortune 500), Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) and Yahoo (YHOO,

Senior administration officials said there is no indication that the HealthCare.gov site has been compromised and the action is being taken out of an abundance of caution. The government´s Heartbleed review is ongoing, the officials said, and users of other websites may also be told to change their passwords in the coming days, including those with accounts on the popular

JACKSON, Wyo. – A slow-motion disaster continued unfolding in the Wyoming resort town of Jackson on Saturday, as a creeping landslide that split a hillside home threatened to swallow up more houses and businesses. The ground beneath the 100-foot hillside had been slowly giving way for almost two weeks before the downward movement accelerated in recent days. With rocks and dirt tumbling down, officials suspended efforts to shore up the slope and said they were uncertain what else could be done. "When is it going to go? How long is it going to last?

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) told NBC´s "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "[T]hese elections, particularly the Senate elections, are referendums on the candidates running," she said. Asked about vulnerable Democrats who have criticized President Obama´s flawed healthcare law, Wasserman Schultz said they are running their own race.

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is
