Hey libotards, hows this working for you too? But it really doesn't matter cuz only libotards work minimum wage jobs,
Left goes bonkers as ObamaCare actually starts destroying jobs
By DAN CALABRESE - You think they attacked business before? Just you wait.
We tried to tell them. You can't impose massive new health care costs on businesses without negatively impacting employment status and wage levels. But you knew they would never listen. You knew they would pass ObamaCare anyway, because they think businesses have gigantic piles of money sitting around in secret rooms somewhere, and the only reason they don't provide employees with gold-plated benefit packages - free of charge - is that they are heartless, greedy bastards who want all their workers to get sick, suffer and die.
So they went ahead and passed it. And now that everything we tried to warn them of is happening, you don't think they're going to just admit they were wrong do you? No way. We're already seeing how the left intends to deal with the news of massive cuts in jobs and employee hours, especially in the food service industry. They're going to attack the companies making the moves as greedy, unpatriotic cretins who are using ObamaCare as an excuse to enrich themselves at the expense of workers and customers.
Already a movement is starting to organize a boycott of Applebee's, Olive Garden and quite a few other well known chains because they are believed to be cutting employee hours - a move that allows them to avoid the requirement of paying for benefits under ObamaCare. And today the left is apoplectic over the plans of Florida-based Denny franchisee John Metz to impose an "ObamaCare surcharge" of 5 percent on meals.
I suppose most Obama voters don't know much more about business than Obama himself knows (which is pretty much nothing), so maybe they really didn't understand that this was inevitable. Maybe they really didn't understand that businesses can't just willingly hand over a portion of their profit margins without making some sort of move to mitigate the loss
#75414 Jan 17, 2013
No,,,, what I want to know is how that for past 10 years the US had the lowest tax rates in it's history and you Repubs say it's too high because it hurts the job creators. You got any type proof of that? History proves pretty much everything you Repubs say is wrong.
Tax rates kill jobs. No proof looking at the data from 1950 thru 1999.
Drill more oil gas prices go down. US producing more oil than anytime since 2003. US imports at the lowest levels in 20 years. US EXPORTS at the highest levels since 1949. Gas average higher last 5 years. No proof Drill Baby Drill did anything but allow Exxon the most profits of any company ever in world history.

Hey libotards, explain this!
Unreal: Obama Blames Bush Tax-Cuts for Record Deficits
The so-called Bush tax cuts, which were almost passed in the last century, are being vilified by the Obama administration as having busted the government budget and led to unsustainable deficits. The president might want to consult his own economic advisers, whose data suggest otherwise.
and then oblamer extends then, man are you sheeple hurtin, BAAAAAAAAAAAA
#75418 Jan 17, 2013
Ok, sodotard, here it goes,
1 + 1 = 2
2 + 2 = 4
1,000,000,000 - 17,000,000,000,000,=- 16,000,000,000,000
for those libotard that don't know what a '-' is, that is a minus sign, that means you have less than what you had before, in a mathematical sense it means add a negative number.
However, libotard math is,
2 + 2 = 6 if you use really big 2s,
a negative balance of 1 trillion $ can be made positive using three kinds of math,
A. one kind of libotard math is when you have 2 negative numbers - that equals a positive number, so, if you are spending 1 trillion dollars, you write a useless check for 1 trillion $, both negative numbers, then the two negative numbers make a positive, thus, you now have 2 trillion $ positive,
B. another kind of libotard math is to print more and more paper money. But inflation has nothing to do with that now does it
C. probably the funniest kind of libotard math is to make a metal coin, put oblamers face on it and call it 1 trillion $.(This is the best one yet) Then spend against that 1 trillion $.
the only problem with any of these is, no matter what way the math is manimpulated, there is nothing to back it up, no real money, no consumer confidence, lower credit ratings that effects consumer confidence, then, when a natural disaster strikes, or there are economic slowdowns - people pay the consequences,
now that you are really really confused (and irritated), all any of us right wing extremists can say to you libosheep is BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Oh, and I almost forgot, spending more than is humanly possible or even in circulation doesn't add up either, so you need to make a whole bag of those 1 trillion $ coins, except you can't put oblamers face on it, he already has that on food stamps, the currency of libs,

How are all you liberals liking you pay check decrease. I wish all of you could have seen the complaints that I got when payroll completed pay over the last 2 weeks. It literally took about 99% of the people by surprise that their pay checks were substantially smaller. There was absolutely nothing I could have done to ease their pain. I also had to pay higher taxes but let me tell you it did not affect me one bit. I pushed the increase off on the produce line and I won't hire any new workers until after March and then I will do layoffs every January for 3 months. It's what needs to be done for a business to stay afloat; that is until Obamacare costs hit me when I have over 50 ppl.

Actually it was no surprise to it. In 2011 the Obama tax deal had taken money from the general fund and placed it in SS fund. In doing that it was announced a 2% tax holiday on SS. The tax was not extended as part of the Jan 2013 budget deal and had been put in place as temporary at the time anyway.
The Internal Revenue Service has directed employers to implement the lower 4.2% Social Security tax rate paid by employees no later than January 31, 2011. Additionally, employers are supposed to refund to their employees any excess tax withholding if they were using the old 6.2% rate during January; the IRS has instructed employers to refund the difference no later than March 31, 2011.

Why Are Liberals So Angry And Hateful?
Sunday, November 20th, 2011 | Author: iker
It does not take a psychoanalyst to see that people who are of the liberal political bent rarely smile, laugh or are pleasant to be around. If one watches the proceedings in the congress of our nation it is not hard to pick out the liberals seated there. Scowling faces and expressions are common place there. We must ask ourselves why this is the case.
First, the ground zero of why this is true is that they are mostly, if not all, atheists. Folks who want to protect a culture of death have little to be optimistic about. These folks are rabid pro-abortionists which translated means,“I want as many pregnant women to kill their babies as possible, especially ethnic groups.” They also want to see old people, who no longer contribute to society, to be euthanized so that they will not be a drain on our economy. They want to see the mentally and physically handicapped put out of their misery.

Why are liberals so intolerant?
posted at 1:16 pm on August 1, 2012 by Rob Bluey
Mike Huckabee, the Family Research Council and others have declared this Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. And while Americans should head to the chicken-sandwich restaurant to show their support, they should also take the opportunity to reflect on the intolerant left.
Watching liberals react to Dan Cathy’s comments on marriage and family over the past two weeks revealed their real agenda: shut down and silence anyone who doesn’t agree with them.
Big-city mayors from Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., vowed to use their political clout to keep Chick-fil-A out of their cities. When the company’s top spokesman died unexpectedly last week, one liberal friend of mine declared on Facebook,“Oh, karma, you crafty bitch.”
I thought liberals were the ones preaching tolerance?
The Chick-fil-A kerfuffle helped clarify a point conservatives have been making for years. Liberals are interested in debate only when they’re winning. And on the issue of marriage, they’re 0-for-32 in states that have put the question to voters.
That offers some explanation why mayors Tom Menino, Rahm Emanuel, Ed Lee and Vincent Gray promised to punish Cathy because of his differing view on marriage. What’s scary, though, is that individuals with this much clout think it’s appropriate to use that power to exact the punishment.
Never mind that Chick-fil-A takes no position on homosexual marriage, a point the company reiterated during the media firestorm. It didn’t matter. Liberal journalists fanned the flames by deeming Cathy’s comments endorsing the “biblical definition of the family unit“ as anti-gay.
And to make matters worse for the mayors, Chick-fil-A hires employees and serves customers without regard to their sexual orientation. So in this case, the only people discriminating are the mayors.
Sadly, this is a trend that’s played out too frequently of late.
Liberals used the same tactics they’re now employing against Chick-fil-A earlier this summer to attack University of Texas professor Mark Regnerus. He published one of the most comprehensive studies examining the outcomes for adult children whose parents had same-sex relationships. Rather than learn from Regnerus’ study or debate its findings, activists instead have sought to destroy his credibility and banish him from public discourse.

Video: New York Democrats Plan for Gun Confiscation
January 17, 2013
Democrats in New York ran for cover in response to fallout after Gov. Andrew Cuomo said confiscation is the goal of new gun laws introduced in the state legislature.“Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option,” Cuomo said in December.
The plan was shelved after it was estimated it would cost over a billion dollars to “buyback” around a million so-called assault weapons in the state.
“The cost of confiscation would make it impracticable, if there’s anything approaching a million of them, putting aside the other issues that would be involved,’’ a Cuomo administration source told the New York Post.
But despite the budget-busting cost of a mandatory buyback, Democrats in the state are determined to confiscate firearms from law-abiding New Yorkers, as the video below demonstrates.
During an exchange on January 15 in the New York State Assembly, Republican Steven F. McLaughlin said the gun bill proposed by Democrats included provisions to confiscate weapons, but the proposals were rejected because they would have sunk the legislation.
The exchange underscores the fact that Democrats in New York and Washington are not merely interested in outlawing what they erroneously describe as assault weapons, but are determined to confiscate them

I work in a refinery with excellent benefits, bonuses, pension, so I don't see it either. I voted for Obama just to keep the cons out of the office. We didn't notice it either. Big companies keep on chugging. Small business owners (lots of reps there) will soon go under. Then they can join the regular workforce.

Retiring Boomers Find 401(k) Plans Fall Short
February 19, 2011 / http://tinyurl.com/47ong3n
The 401(k) generation is beginning to retire, and it isn't a pretty sight.
The retirement savings plans that many baby boomers thought would see them through old age are falling short in many cases.
The median household headed by a person aged 60 to 62 with a 401(k) account has less than one-quarter of what is needed in that account to maintain its standard of living in retirement, according to data compiled by the Federal Reserve and analyzed by the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College for The Wall Street Journal. Even counting Social Security and any pensions or other savings, most 401(k) participants appear to have insufficient savings. Data from other sources also show big gaps between savings and what people need, and the financial crisis has made things worse.
Corporate CEO 'Extremists' Target Social Security, Medicare
'For the wealthy, pampered, and narcissistic CEOs of the Business Roundtable, sacrifice is always for someone else.'
January 17, 2013 /
CEOs from America's largest corporations—including its biggest banks, retailers, and insurance companies who helped drive the country into the worst recession in nearly a century— are now calling on Congress to punish the nation's working class and society's most vulnerable by advocating major changes to Social Security and Medicare in a new lobbying push that critics say reveal the cruelty and selfish nature of the country's corporate class.
The Business Roundtable, comprised of more than 200 chief executives and some of the nation's wealthiest individuals, began lobbying DC lawmakers Wednesday in a press conference calling for major cuts to Social Security (including a raise in elgibility age to 70) and a new push to privatize Medicare.
Critics of the group call the move a clear assault by the nation's wealthiest on the social safety net that protects millions of working people.

Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out --
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out --
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me -- and there was no one left to speak for me.
