The election was fraudulent. Obama has obstructed justice and committed crimes and misdemeanors against the American people and its allies.

The mass firings and layoffs begin. The health industry nationwide has already been laying off and reducing staff at hospitals because of Obama and the Socialist Democrats. Now, the reality of Democrat policy and stated intent is reflected across many industries...

It serves the Socialists right. More companies, especially those with owners making less than $45 Thousand will be closing their doors. Put all the thieving Socialists and their baby killing maniacs on the streets!

None of this is purely malice – could it be?.......Naw, they wouldn’t do that! So when they get done with their little tantrum, they’ll have to hire some people.(BTW, these owners don't make less than $45K - try $45M)

No, it's not malice. It's cold, calculated human resources exercised by the people actually running the country. It's more humane, than the eugenics policies of the President and more humane than ethnic cleansing, which will be coming too, if idiots don't pay attention to those not stuck in an entitlement, theft mentality.

By people "running the country", you must be refering to the corporate heads....Which is the problem.

Their are benefits to incorporating business, something small and medium business owners know also. The marriage of the larger corporations and government is an Obama Socialist twist new to America... it's called Fascism. The real power in America resides with the smaller businesses and they are only starting to flex their muscle against the Socialist thieves and takers. As the unemployment rises, as the businesses simply shut their doors, those permitting Fascist economics in America will whine, but apparently not admit it's their own Party starting the problem.

There will be some attempts from Socialists to take over some businesses and run them by committee. Although this has always resulted in societal and economic malaise with people all walking around in gray Mao suits, it is nonetheless a possibility. For those business owners with foresight of someone stealing their efforts and creations, total destruction of their business efforts before leaving is an option. You have rights. One of those rights is to not partake in the destruction of your country. Let the smart-ass Socialists try to run business, or keep people employed. The only option available to them is forced military expansion, as in other Communist countries. There's too many freedom lovers in America to have that not come back at the Socialists themselves.

Great advice! If you don’t like the direction the country is going….Leave! Here’s an idea…. Go to Canada, Norway, or Sweden….They have much more stable economies!

I don't agree. Americans capable of creating and producing don't have to leave. The small business owners can live as well doing the same thing the Leftists are doing... live on food stamps and handouts from an ever expanding government. The middle classes thinking this wouldn't impact them with unemployment will expand those numbers. This will only accelerate the inevitable confrontation of Socialists and their idiocy with more printed, worthless money. Those capable of creation and production won't go away; they'll simply wait for the inevitable positive direction of mankind to reemerge... creators in their place, takers and thieves a bit more humble.

Well if you don't agree with the corporate heads either become one yourself and do something different or stop buying their products. I bet you own an iPhone?

Companies are in business to make a profit. If the government mandates something that affects their profits they need to do something to offset that cost. If that means layoffs then so be it. The alternative is going out of business and losing all of the jobs not just some. If you lose your job due to Obamacare costs thank all of the takers that voted for Obama. When the numbers of takers keeps growing while the number of givers keeps decreasing its simple math people something must be cut.

Hostess company is another example of how unions kill jobs and companies. So instead of taking a pay cut they got their jobs cut. Don't feel sorry for them one bit. Live with the consequences of your decisions.

As this Nation now must do, and the consequences will be dire. The entitlment crowd will demand more as a reward for their vote and Obama and the liberals (Democrats) will try to give it to them to maintain their power over them. Sad times ahead as the socialist agenda is trying to be pushed forward. Let us all hope the House can stand its ground and curtail the wild spending spree that Obama will "try" to push through the house and senate. Increase spending and increase taxes.....let the recession continue to spiral downward along witht he unemployment numbers.
Contact your representive in the HOUSE and ask to to stand strong against any increase in spending and taxes.

Only an idiot would blame the union for what is happening with Hostess. I don't think you even know the actual story, do you? Did you know that the workers had to put up w/constant paycuts, up to 8% while management was getting almost $2 million in bonuses? Are you saying that you would have absolutely no problem having your salary cut & your upper management crying about money problems while they rake in millions in bonuses? You're a freakin' liar if you say you would have no problem with that.

Excellent reply, which shows exactly that you have no idea what you're talking about. Try getting educated before you spout your incorrect part rhetoric.
