Vegas Employer: Obama
Won–So I Fired 22 Employees

CBS News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 11/8/2012 9:55:23 AM

LAS VEGAS— A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today, apparently as a direct result of President Obama’s re-election. “David” (he asked to remain anonymous for obvious reasons) told Host Kevin Wall on 100.5 KXNT that “elections have consequences” (snip) “I’ve done my share of educating my employees. I never tell them which way to vote. I believe in the free system we have, I believe in the right to choose who they want to be president, but I did explain as a business owner that I have always put my employees first.

This is only the beginning.Now their State Senator "Old Harry" anounce that there are going to be additional taxes coming our way.
Maybe the hispanic enployees fired who based on election result data indicate that the hispanics vote help put Obama over the top will now get a free cell phone for their vote.

Consequences. Yes.
The people who voted for Obama are about to learn what that word means, as the man they re-elected sets out to erase the American Dream, while giving his followers the finger.

What do you think the Chicoms been doing since Obama gained the presidency in 2008? Offloading treasury bonds slowly but surely and acquiring tangible assets elsewhere. With another few more rounds of quantitative easings, the US dollar is going to be worthless and be no longer useful for international trade. When that happens, the bottom is going to fall out for the US economy and we'll probably start seeing the barter economy come back the way it was when the USSR fixed the rouble at a ridiculously unrealistic rate. Americans may end up trading with Canadian dollars!

People shifting to gold are voting with their pocketbooks to insure against that day.

As more and more businessmen shrink or close their businesses, they will be called "unpatriotic." The leopard will not change his stripes. It will never be his fault.

As I work through my grief, I can only imagine how painful it is for people still in business who were waiting for a Romney victory to put positive growth plans in place. Their futures remain insecure and frightening. The very fabric of our country is changing right before our very eyes, and evidently we are powerless to stop it.

Obama will switch from funding sham solar companies and instead give the money to the employees of the closed businesses to buy and run them, with great fanfare and talk of fairness. Then they'll go out of business and that won't be reported.

My husband sent out an email to his company letting employees know what the current administration had done and will do to their company and industry if reelected.

Never did he tell people how to vote or whom to vote for, just exercise your right to vote. He wanted people to have the facts. Several employees were 'offended.' Many, many responded with emails thanking him. Someone called the paper but the reporter determined there was no story. There wasn't.

We'll see what transpires down the road now that the leftists who hate business are still in charge.

Sad days ahead for a lot of clueless people who voted for going Forward.

BHO does not care. He will use this crisis, just like all the others he amplified. It's not his policies, it's the mean businessman. Of course his team was vindictive and incompetent at the same time when they forced the closing of auto dealerships that were profitable, but who had not donated to his campaign. That was not a big deal to your liberal neighbor because it didn't affect him that day. In fact he thought it was a pretty good idea.

I am thinking about putting together an organization called Conservatives on Food Stamps. If we make it easy for people like us to get signed up for every government program possible, we can add enough weight to the system to bring it crashing down. We're at war and we need to crush the opposition's infrastructure.

Food stamps? Just chine up!
Obama phone? Just chine up!
EBT? Just chine up!
Disability? Just chine up!
Medicaid? Just chine up!

I'm just getting started. We need all 60 million Romney voters on the rolls.

Yep, elections have consequences...was at the vets yesterday, the receptionist said everyone that had come in was madder than "heck" about the outcome. Another person came in, and she was also upset. Said she had a business, but would be closing it at the end of the year. Vets were also upset. They were planning on buying a new digital x-ray machine, but they said now they would not spend the money. Sad day and years ahead for America.

My sister-in-law works for a very small, family run company. Last month they laid off one driver and one office worker. The boss has also indicated that all positions at the company might be reduced to part-time jobs.

I know it doesn't sound drastic, 2 layoffs, but I also know that this will be happening all across the country.

My husband goes to a little hair cutting place owned by a Vietnamese woman. We voted early, and he started talking to her about the election. She said she had voted for O, as had her (union/Vietnamese) husband. My husband asked her why, when she had a little business, she would vote for Obama.

"Oh he take care of us! Obama take care of us!"

So when he paid, my husband asked for ones in change. He held out four dollars and said, "This was going to be your tip. But since you voted for the person who will take more of my money, I have less to give you. So I'm keeping a dollar." She was shocked, absolutely shocked, but then swallowed and said, "OK".

And PS, as nicely as she cuts his hair, I am advocating that he find a barber who voted for Romney.

I'm thinking Peru, great economy and they are again rejecting The Shinning Path Marxist Movement, Obama's cousins.

With SS and SSI, I can live good and put away the new business I just started this year as a no go (write off). Sorry to the 'folks' who might have made a living with me.

And to the young who voted for Obama...you now have signed up for child support paid to the Government on yourself for the rest of your life (Obama Care). Put that with your student loans and that will be about 5 grand a year you owe to Uncle Sambo. Your starting wage will be below 40,000 (if you can find a job) and with taxes, inflation, insurance, student loans, and other hidden cost deducted you will have about 25,000 left so there will be no home loan, no BMW, no boat, and very little Starbuck latte double bama for you.

Live with it idiots.

If Romney had been elected, the exact opposite of what posters are describing would be happening. Employers would not be laying off, they would be hopefully looking ahead to perhaps expanding their businesses. The stock market would not have fallen, it would have sky rocketed. People would not be posting that they are in mourning for their country.

The red states must be as inhospitable as possible to layabouts, freeloaders and illegals. Let the blue states pick up the slack. We will be default become two countries.

The online federal health insurance marketplace, HealthCare.gov, has been pushed beyond its capacity for the second time on Monday, as Americans around the country are racing to sign up for health plans before a midnight deadline. Shortly after noon, new visitors to the Web site began to be greeted with a screen saying, “We need you to wait here, so we can make sure there’s room for you to have a good experience on our site.” The screen inviting them to leave email addresses so that they could be contacted when the volume lessened, although it was unclear whether that

“When 99 percent of women used birth control in their lifetime and 60 percent use it for something other than family planning, it’s outrageous and I think the Supreme Court will suggest that their case is ridiculous.” – Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, Democratic National Committee chair, on MSNBC’s “The Ed Show,” March 25, 2014 Schultz made these remarks in the context of the Supreme Court case brought by owners of the Hobby Lobby arts-and-crafts chain and Conestoga Wood Specialties cabinetry company, who have objected to paying for all of the birth control procedures required by the Affordable Care Act.

FRANKFORT, Ky. — In one of the poorest areas of Appalachia, about 2,500 people have signed up to get health insurance over the last six months — a number that represents more than a tenth of Clay County’s residents. One-hundred-and-twenty miles way, the county’s state senator, Robert Stivers, is laying out his plans to gradually gut the Affordable Care Act in Kentucky, which provided his constituents with insurance. The soft-spoken 52-year-old Republican is hardly a fiery Tea Party type: He first joined the state Legislature in 1997 and slowly rose through the ranks to become the state Senate president. In

US autism estimate

The government’s estimate of autism has moved up again to 1 in 68 U.S. children, a 30 percent increase in two years. But health officials say the new number may not mean autism is more common. Much of the increase is believed to be from a cultural and medical shift, with doctors diagnosing autism more frequently, especially in children with milder problems. “We can’t dismiss the numbers. But we can’t interpret it to mean more people are getting the disorder,” said Marisela Huerta, a psychologist at the New York-Presbyterian Center for Autism and the Developing Brain in suburban White Plains, N.Y.

The state with the most segregated public schools is New York. Other states with exceptionally segregated schools include California, Illinois and Michigan. These findings come from a longitudinal study of enrollment figures conducted by the Civil Rights Project at the University of California at Los Angeles, The Associated Press reports. The period studied was 1998 through 2010. New York, California, Illinois and Michigan are traditionally among the most reliably Democratic states in the union, as an interactive 2012 map created by Slate shows.

A law firm hired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Thursday that the governor was not involved in a plot to create gridlock near a major bridge as part of a political retribution scheme. The taxpayer-funded report released by former federal prosecutor Randy Mastro relies on interviews with Christie and other officials in his administration and 250,000 documents, many of them emails and text messages. "We found that Gov. Christie had no knowledge beforehand of this George Washington Bridge realignment idea," Mastro said at a news conference. His report comes out ahead of any results from independent investigations by federal prosecutors and

She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all.

MSNBC’s ratings are sliding, according to a new Pew Research report. While primetime audiences are down for CNN, Fox News and MSNB, it is MSNBC that “dropped 11% to about 3 million, the smallest it has been since 2007.” The report continues, “The Nielsen Media Research data show that the biggest decline came at MSNBC, which lost nearly a quarter (24%) of its prime-time audience. CNN, under new management, ended . . . in third place, with a 13 percent decline in prime time. Fox, while down 6 percent, still drew more viewers (1.75 million) than its two competitors combined

Russian forces completed their take over of the Ukrainian navy’s assets in Crimea with the storming of the minesweeper Cherkessy. The Ukrainian navy has been reduced to only 10 vessels, with the other 51 it held at the beginning of this month, including its only submarine, now flying the Russian flag. But of all the Ukrainian military assets Russia has seized during the annexation, none is quite as unusual as the combat dolphin program.

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ.

Late on Tuesday night, the White House “decided to give extra time” to prospective Affordable Care Act enrollees. At least, that’s how The Washington Post put it, though it is unlikely that the changes they made to the ACA’s online infrastructure was the result of a spur–of–the–moment decision. Administration officials maintain that they are simply giving consumers who may be interested in insurance, but have not yet selected or paid for coverage, an extra two weeks to complete the arduous enrollment process. They add that this extension is only available to those who have begun the process of enrollment by March

One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow.

President Bill Clinton´s guilty conscience over his affair with Monica Lewinsky – and a desire to repair his shattered reputation by using the State of the Union address – set his speechwriters an unenviable task, newly released archive papers reveal. The former president appeared to be trying to butter up his wife, Hillary Clinton, out of guilt – or perhaps to fool her – before the scandal broke. And he was determined to try to convince the American public afterwards that he was still of a high moral character. The latest batch of documents from the Clinton Library covering his presidency in the

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. (Snip) In response to these findings from CIS that follow up on his office’s report last week, Sessions said immigration law in America has essentially ceased to

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Here are some of the highlights: Giant malarial mosquitoes the size of crane flies may descend en masse and drain us of our blood so quickly with their powerful razor sharp probosces that we won´t even have time to be infected - we´ll be dead before we hit the floor; Bangladesh, Tuvalu, The Maldives and Florida will all be submerged; Four horsemen with skulls for faces, glowing red eyes and huge scythes will gallop across
