If these people are laying off just because Obama got elected they are idiots. My guess they would have done so anyway Maybe they need to get their heads out of their butts and get in tune to what is expected of their business. And if there is a demand for their business and they are purposely cutting back as a sign of rebellion then someone else will step to the plate
You are right in ways. Political payback doesn't work because the free market will eat those companies up. Most people don't fire their workers for that reason. They have connections to these people and their families. And they could give a damn about Washington.

What these people are fighting for is the very survival of their business. They hope if they cut a portion of the jobs today, they can hunker down with fewer expenses and hopefully survive to a brighter day. If they don't cut, they go bankrupt or shut down.

I'll grant you it's anecdotal, but every business owner I know is worried they won't make it the next four years under Obama. Obama has jacked taxes, increases regulations at an alarming rate, and has shown that he doesn't have a clue how to run an economy. I wouldn't hire him to run my personal finances. The guy is a pretender. He's an amateur, that's so far above his head it's comical. We live in the land of make believe where a cult of personality trumps common sense.
Business everywhere have been trying to hang on and many are giving up now that they see 4 more years of hell. I'm simply documenting the pain Obama is now causing by staying at the helm of this country. The Republicans have been trying to stop him, but they are dealing with issues that can't be resolved because they were passed when Obama had a super-majority. Now they can't get rid of the things that kill this economy because Obama vetoes it. So it is now 100% Obama's fault. I can't give partial blame to those who are trying to stop it.
Businesses are not starting back up. We are at a record low for people starting new businesses.

Killa,

You will never get through to the individuals you are trying to. Their mind set is so skewed beyond reality, you can inform all you want, you will not make any progress. I wish you could?

Don't get disheartened. This country went into the Revolutionary War with 40% support. There will never be 100% agreement.

The more you can reach, the sooner we can get back on to the road of what once made America great. We won't ever get there if people remain in ignorance. The education never stops.

I hope you are right, but we are almost at 50% voting for their own check from the government, thinking there is an endless supply of money. We will be at 60% in the next couple years. I do not see how to slow that down this cycle, till total collapse occurs, maybe then the general populous will realize it is not the responsibility of the government to take care of them? I do not think till that collapse occurs, they have any thoughts that they can take care of themselves. It is always someone else responsibility, whether it is their employer, or government. I hate that I have reached this point in my mind, but I have talked to a dozen people that feel this way, and have no clue how so many people can have been so duped. We are welcoming the collapse, so maybe there will be a light on the other side. When all you have to look to is the failure of so many European countries, and you vote to follow that direction, how can you not feel any other way about the general populous.

I believe a collapse is coming as well. It doesn't mean the end of the world. It means severe devaluation and probable inflation. These events are investable and can be prepared for to lesson your family's pain.

Liberals will dying in the streets waiting for government to come save them.

I am prepared, bring it on. Bring on the $7 a gallon gas,$10 for a gallon of milk, Utility bills tripling. The thing that is amazing, O wanted this, this was his plan. He did not hide his plan. He wanted the U.S. to be just like the European countries, well, HE GOT HIS WISH. You know people will comment on here that we are radicals, and we are exaggerating, but you know what, let them. I am ready, are they? I agree it is not the end of the world, if it gets really bad here, I will go play elsewhere. I am 50, I work part time to give me something to do, I can do that anywhere in the world. I know a lot of people just like me, we have been paying for a lot of lazy people for along time.

I have been out of the market for awhile, I doubt we have anyway to know where the bottom is, since we have never seen a bottom like we are about to see. It is going to be a decade, or decades, to recover from the current situation. We will recover, I may be gone, but the U.S. will recover. But then again, you can not un-teach stupid!

Here's how it will go... Market will tank hard within a couple of months. There will be an overreaction and market will snap back. The big, more permanent tanking hasn't arrived yet. That will be in a couple of years. Of course, there may be crazy inflation, in which case the second tank may not occur in the stock market, but rather at the grocery store and gas station.

I agree COMPLETELY. Then when debt hit 20 trillion, and the individuals, and countries, lending the U.S. money cut off the government, and government checks start bouncing, wow. Those who voted the idiot in will wonder what happened? Those damn rich people, including Bush, will have taken their money, "IN THEIR MINDS". It does not matter that if you took to total net worth of the 5% they think should support them, it only comes to 2 Trillion Dollars, that will not even support the government for a year. So when those checks start bouncing, I can feel pretty certain there will be riots, blaming everyone but themselves.

One mistake there... Those checks won't bounce. Obama will just keep printing money. What will happen is those food stamps that were buying steaks and lobster, will now be lucky to buy a gallon of milk.

It'll be interesting when he tries to fight to raise food stamp payments and even the Dems finally realize we've run out of money. The question will be, do we turn into pre WWII Germany or pre 1990s Brazil with a billion percent inflation, or will we finally cut the stinking budget?

we was actually talking about this in class today. the goverment is spending 35,500,000 just this year alone. 3/4 of that goes to bust marijuana offenders out of 1.5 million so far arrested this year close to 800,000 are small time offenders of marijuana. i know not everyone aproves of this trust me i dont smoke marijuana but just legalize it, tax it like that do everything else it would cut 75% of that 35,500,000 off not counting saves us from housing the asses, also it would create some kind of jobs plus the taxes the government would receive from it.
