Greece under the leftists: Debt-free, well-paid and a proud people
Gulf Times ^| 6/4/2012 | AFP/Athens

Posted on Monday, June 04, 2012 1:25:05 AM by aquila48

No debt repayments, higher salaries and freedom from EU-IMF tutelage: Greece under the radical leftists, who are poised to win a June 17 election, seems a world removed from its current recession nightmare. The Syriza party has pledged to tear up Greece’s loan agreement with the EU and the IMF, which is currently keeping the country on its feet but at the cost of an unprecedented wave of austerity cuts and structural reforms. If implemented, such a programme, which would also mean the nationalisation of banks and a halt to privatisation, could well mean Greece’s ejection from the eurozone, potentially sending shockwaves through the global economy. Fed up with two years of salary and pension cuts, Greek voters on May 6 punished larger parties associated with the bailout and catapulted Syriza to second place, within striking distance of the top.

'We The People' by Nos Populus (video)
Nospopulususa.com ^| Feb. 10, 2010 | Nospopulus

Dear President Obama,

“We The People” have stated resolutely we reject your vision for our country. You claim you have not heard us.

“We The People” have assembled across America resisting your efforts to subvert our constitution and undermine our liberty. You claim you have not seen us.

Since you have not acknowledged our message, let us here present it once more for if as President Wilson said,“a leader’s ear must ring with the voices of the people,” the time has come.

Our greatest treasure is freedom – the absence of restraints on our ability to think and to act. The corollary of freedom is individual responsibility. We believe in the power of the individual.

A few years ago President Bush said,“History moves toward freedom because the desire for freedom is written in every human heart.” Let us add that we will preserve it only as long as devotion to freedom is expressed in the heart of our actions.

When President Lincoln dedicated Gettysburg National Cemetery he declared,“It is for us the living to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus so nobly advanced.”

That unfinished cause for which our soldiers willingly go to battle and for which so many have given their lives is a free United States of America. It has been nearly one hundred fifty years and the work President Lincoln spoke of is not finished. In fact, that work will never be finished.

Freedom is the capacity of self-determination. It is not an entity but a condition and conditions change. Freedom can expand, yet so can it contract.

You promised change when you took office, Mr. President, but subjugation is not change we wanted or will accept.

You have expanded government, violated our Constitution, confounded laws, seized private industry, destroyed jobs, perverted our economy, curtailed free speech, corrupted our currency, weakened our national security, and endangered our sovereignty.

By compromising our nation’s cultural, legal and economic institutions, you are ensuring that our children will never achieve the same quality of life as we enjoy today. Through generational theft you are robbing the unborn of opportunity.

This is not acceptable. Not in America. We did not become a strong nation through hope but rather through self-reliance.

No one better understands the relationship between individual achievement, dignity and strength than our armed forces. Through every war our soldiers have held this nation’s destiny in their hands. They have not failed us. They cherish freedom enough that they are willing to die for it.

Our duty to them and to ourselves is to treasure freedom enough to live up to it.

We accept the challenge, Mr. President. That is why we are assembling across the land to deliver our message to you as often and in every way we can. Dismiss us at your political peril.

Our great nation is a Republic. We will not accept tyranny under any guise. Your policy to redistribute the fruits of our labor is Statism and will not be tolerated.

By our honor, Mr. President, we vow forever to resist coercive government in America. Patriots will not stand silent as you attempt to dismantle the greatest nation on earth.“We The People” will defend our liberty. We will protect our beloved country and America’s exceptionalism will prevail.

God Bless the United States of America!

Sincerely,

We The People

North Carolina Blacks for Obama, Key in 2008, are Uncertain in ’12
New York Times ^| October 9, 2012 | By SUSAN SAULNY

Posted on Tuesday, October 09, 2012 3:39:10 PM by Oldeconomybuyer

RALEIGH, N.C.— Dexter Hady, a black landscaper here, is exactly the kind of Obama supporter who could have slipped through the cracks this year. He recently moved to a new address and, not being as excited about the coming election as he was about the 2008 campaign, neglected to update his voter registration.

By chance, a volunteer for the Obama campaign stopped Mr. Hady outside of the Wake County Courthouse here recently and asked him if he was prepared to vote. Mr. Hady said no, and went on to explain:“I can say I was definitely more excited to vote for Obama last time. I guess part of it is that history has already been made.”

For the Obama campaign, it is almost impossible to overstate the importance of winning over people like Mr. Hady again in North Carolina, which has the largest percentage of black voters of any of the swing states — especially in the wake of President Obama’s performance in the first debate on Wednesday, which was widely seen as lackluster. In 2008, a strong black turnout that voted almost exclusively for Mr. Obama was credited with helping to turn North Carolina blue for the first time in decades, contributing to his ultimate victory.

For that to happen again, Mr. Obama would need a near repeat of black voter behavior in Raleigh and across the state. But times have changed. Enthusiasm is down, unemployment is up. And some socially conservative black ministers in North Carolina, where voters passed a referendum against gay marriages and civil unions in May, remain troubled that Mr. Obama endorsed same-sex marriage this year.

Actress Stacey Dash Endorses Romney, Liberals Fling Racist Insults
NewsBusters.org ^| October 8, 2012 | Matthew Sheffield

Posted on Monday, October 08, 2012 10:45:03 PM by Kaslin

In his speech to the Republican National Convention earlier this year, actor Clint Eastwood told the assembled crowd that there are more conservatives and moderates in Hollywood than they might think. Such people “play closer to the vest. They do not go around hot dogging it,” Eastwood said.

Unfortunately, actress Stacey Dash is finding out the hard way what happens to those celebrities who are willing to think for themselves: they get attacked by the very people who claim to preach “tolerance” and “peace.”(Note: This blog post is “not safe for work” and certainly not for children.)

The self-proclaimed merchants of tolerance were even more upset at the former Clueless star because she dares to back Mitt Romney even though she, like President Obama, is partially black. And of course, all black Americans must vote for Obama.

It all started yesterday afternoon when Dash tweeted out the following message on her Twitter page, accompanied by a photo of herself with an American flag:

“Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future.@mittromney @teamromney #mittromney #VOTE #voteromney”

Soon thereafter, Dash came under attack from vile Obama supporters who had no problem using racial ephithets to attack her personal choice.

“Kill yaself you old hag,” tweeted someone named Briggs Marley. His sentiments were echoed by several other bastions of tolerance.

Another genius calling himself Sherrick W. denounced Dash as “an indoor slave.” He was replying back to someone named @HelloItsBeyonce who had also used racial slurs to attack the actress:“You ready to head back to the fields, jiggaboo?” the person had said, using an offensive racial slur referring to dark-skinned black Americans.

Someone calling herself @ASvpFeefa blasted Dash using another racial slur:“TYPICAL OREO .. Voting for a white devil.#SICK”

Knowing how ridiculous some liberals can be, Dash must have anticipated the hatred that was going to come her way. She eventually started responding back to the jerks.

“lmao,” she tweeted back after one nimrod called her a “dumb bitch.” She tweeted back a simple smiley face emoticon to another hater who had instructed Dash to “Suck it easy, bitch,” clearly egging on the moron crowd.

Many other offensive tweets followed leading many believers in free speech to begin urging others to support Dash by adding the hashtag #ISupportStaceyDash to the end of their own tweets.

The Dash haters than began attacking those who supported her right to speak her mind.“Y r u on twitter grandma lol come to my hood ill shoot you hoe,” tweeted one illiterate jerk calling himself @JPvanity. He was replying to a conservative woman who had said the following:

“JP - a POTUS cares about a nation, not a color. Why do you vote if you only care about a color?”

Unfortunately the attacks on Dash are continuing right at this moment. If you have a moment and are on Twitter, please show @REALStaceyDash your support.

To read more of the vile insults that have been leveled against Dash, please visit Twitchy or just search for her name on Twitter.

EXTREME Black Anger in Chicago at Obama:“He done did it. He ruined it for us...
HillBuzz ^| October 8, 2012 | Kevin DuJan

Posted on Monday, October 08, 2012 10:05:03 PM by 2ndDivisionVet

Here in Chicago, I regularly meet with a group of friends who call themselves “The Think Squad”; these are men and women who are prominent members of the black community in Hyde Park and the City’s south side. None of them supported Barack Obama’s presidential bid in 2008 but most begrudgingly voted for him because they freely admit race-pride was their motivating factor. These people knew Obama when he was a state senator and saw him do absolutely nothing for blacks in Chicago back then…and they similarly saw Obama do nothing for blacks (or any of his constituents in general) as a United States Senator. The Think Squad has always seen through Obama and continues to speak out about his failings. Expect them, and other blacks coast to coast, to become even more vocal about the “magical first black president” after he loses in November and the anger of “how much that punk wasted” really comes to a boil and people no longer feel intimidated or threatened when the Obamas have left the White House for Hawaii next January. That’s when people will REALLY let it all fly, once the Obamas are no longer even a vestigial presence in Chicago and people have no fear at all in talking about what a sham their marriage is and how the two of them benefitted from affirmative action and white guilt their entire lives.

The problem, for blacks in Chicago, is that the Obamas have actually ruined that white guilt for “the rest of us”, as the Think Squad put it last night at an impromptu after-church-programs dinner I enjoyed with some of the more outspoken “Thinkers” in a little Mexican restaurant near the south side. I try to go to as many of these events as I’m invited to because I always learn something new about how much many blacks actually detest Barack Obama, despite the fact that 95% of black voters are still going to cast their ballots for him in November.”Look, you just have to understand that if there’s a chance to vote for someone who looks like us on a ticket, especially for president, we ain’t gonna vote for no Romney. You put Allen West on a ticket some time and you’ll have blacks forgetting they were ever Democrat. Put that Mia Love on a ticket and watch blacks go nuts for her as VP or something in the future. Democrat Party “Who?” they will say because if you look at the skin and it looks like yours that’s just how you vote. This is the truth. Am I lying?,” one older Thinker asked the table.

“No, you ain’t lying. That’s just how it is. That’s why people need to THINK. Think about what the Democrats really do for black people. They don’t do S*** and we all know it”, another Thinker said before chomping a big chip with salsa and eliciting knowing nods and smiles from the rest of the table.

As we waited for our food to arrive most Thinkers enjoyed their margaritas and I sipped on my Coke while we talked about how consensus in the black community is that “white guilt has been all used up” and that “they were fools to put all the eggs in one basket with Obama”. I’ve never been clear on who “they” is in a sentence like that and the Thinkers were pretty torn on it themselves.”They” could be Democrats, who decided they wanted to run the first viable black presidential candidate in 2008 and that person should be Obama (and not Harold Ford Jr., whom the Clintons were actually grooming for years to fill that niche in the future but who ruined his chances for national office by marrying a blonde white woman instead of a black wife “like a Michelle” who’d be described by someone like Snoop Dog as “having a big a***”).
“Harold Ford Junior, or should I say Harold Ford LOSER was a damn fool. He could have been president some day but he married that white woman. You don’t marry a white woman, especially not a blonde, because you lose black voters that way. Black women hate black men that marry white women and they hate those white b****** for stealing our black men”, interjected a grandmother to my right in a gorgeous gray shawl and funky thick-framed glasses.”Harold threw it all away because he wanted to dunk his donut in the cafe au lait and I hope he’s enjoying that now because he ain’t ever going to be president because of it”.
That line got a lot of laughs at the table, as did most of what Gray Shawl said because it’s always disarming when someone who looks like your favorite teacher in grade school drops food metaphors for sex.
The subject of “using up all the white guilt” is an interesting one that dominated a large part of the conversation as we ate our meal. Speaking openly about this, the Think Squad told me in no uncertain terms that for decades black people have counted on white guilt to “get stuff, whatever we wanted” and that if the government or a corporation or whatever wouldn’t give in to demands from blacks they’d “just scream racism until everyone got scared and gave up”.
‘They’d give up pretty easy too, actually. It was a game people played. You wanted something and you just had to time it right. The City especially would race to get you whatever you asked for if they thought Jesse would show up with his guys and scream and yell about racism if Daley didn’t give them what they wanted”, a Thinker told me about how easy it was for blacks to manipulate the system in Chicago by using threats of “RACISM!” cries to essentially extort Mayor Daley for concessions.
“Daley was smart. He never wanted black people to be picketing anything in Chicago. So all it would take would be a call from Jesse where he’d make the threat and the next day Daley would give in. He was no fool. He didn’t want no trouble. Worked like a charm for thirty years!”, an older Thinker across from me said, between bites of his steak burrito.
I learned that “white guilt” was a finite resource for blacks that many people believe has now been depleted during the Obama presidency. This is something that causes EXTREME anger in black ranks because “Obama didn’t care about what happens to everyone after he’s gone and living in that big house in Hawaii they bought for him”. That’s a reference to the $35 million “retirement estate”that wealthy Chicagoans like Penny Pritzker are working to purchase for the Obamas for occupancy come January 2013 when they are forced to move out of Washington. Like Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos before them, after they leave power they’ll be exiled to the greater Honolulu area to hold court on Oahu and live a life of pampered extravagance as a new Hawaiian royal family for the rest of their days.
“That’s all good for Barack and Michelle, but what happens to the rest of us? We ain’t getting squat from any of this. Worse, we don’t get to exploit the white guilt any more because that’s not there these days.

“That’s all good for Barack and Michelle, but what happens to the rest of us? We ain’t getting squat from any of this. Worse, we don’t get to exploit the white guilt any more because that’s not there these days. It’s all gone. He done did it. He ruined it for us. White people don’t feel guilty no more and won’t do stuff for us now that they used to do so fast you wouldn’t believe it”, a Thinker in a bright, pretty pink blouse offered.”All of it is gone. They used it all up to elect him and to scream at anyone who said boo to him in the last four years. White people got used to being called racist all the time and aren’t scared about it anymore. I have no idea how I’m going to get funding for my programs now because I always counted on white people being too scared to say no to anything we needed at work. This is a disaster for the black community and it’s all because they put all the eggs in his basket and he f***ed it all up”.
It might be strange for you to imagine a very nice group of black professionals openly longing for the days when they could use white guilt as a bargaining chip to get things they wanted or needed, but this is just how things worked in the black community for the last forty years and everyone knew it. Think of it like having a little sister, as one Thinker explained to me, and your sibling is scared of spiders. So, if you want to take her cookie from her or to steal away one of her toys, you know you can run up to her with a Halloween rubber spider on a thread and dangle it over her head until she cries because she is so afraid of that spider. She will do anything to get that spider away from her so she will give you whatever you want.
Only thing is…if you dangle that spider over her head too often she starts getting used to it and starts realizing that it’s not that scary anymore…you used it too much…and eventually she’ll snatch it away from you and see it’s just rubber and she won’t ever be afraid again.
“Miss Muffett on her tuffett wised up, whatever a tuffett is I don’t right know”, said Gray Shawl.”It’s bad for all of us that the spider don’t scare white folk no more. Barack used it too much and those dummies around him didn’t keep it in reserve like we always did before. Now white people aren’t scared and they won’t give in so easily. It’s going to be harder to get money or to scare people in the City to do what we want. No one is scared of black people anymore now like they used to be and that’s a bad thing for our community”.
Think about that. I mean, really think about it. It’s true, isn’t it?
Don’t even think about how cities are extorted by black “community leaders” with threats of accusing the City of being racist…or how big corporations have been shaken down for years by the combined antics of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Henry Gates (the Justice Brothers)…but think about your own personal interactions with a lot of black people at work who have casually played cards like this against you or the big boss in the past. For many years, a lot of white people have been afraid to challenge black coworkers on anything because they were scared the black person would cry “RACISM!”. False accusations of racism have been the go-to defense for bad performance reviews and explanations for workplace conflict because collectively white people have been so scared out of their minds of being labeled a “racist” that they in many cases just went along with whatever the black person wanted to avoid that conflict.
Two or three generations of black people have been taught that if you want something in this country and you receive even the least bit of resistance to it, just accuse the white people standing in your way of being racist and you will get everything you want “and then some”.

Talking to the Think Squad about this is kind of like being a gay man at the table who knows how sex and muscle mass kind of do the same thing in the gay community. The “looks” card is the gay equivalent of the “race card” in that if a gay guy wants something he just has to look great, be in amazing shape, and essentially prostitute his body to get ahead in the world. Many young straight women do the same thing, while they can, using their own looks. Black people’s secret weapon has been their skin color for decades because it’s a card they could always play when they wanted to advance but they just couldn’t do so on merit.
“That’s just when you say,“Oh, is this because I am black?” and then people go running like it’s a fire drill to do whatever you want. It’s funny. But, this doesn’t work as much anymore and it’s because of Barack”, Pretty Pink Blouse admitted.”i think he ruined it for good. I mean, there’s been a black president. Most white people voted for him. They think they’ve done enough and aren’t afraid anymore”.
“You know how people on TV would say “I have black friends” and that was the thing they’d spit out when someone called them a racist? Well the new thing to say now is “I voted for Obama” and that proves you are not a racist. Ain’t nobody saying they have black friends now. It is all “I voted for Obama” and that is proof you aren’t a racist. People aren’t scared anymore”.
I love the Think Squad. They are hilarious. I have always had a great time with them and leave our meetings stuffed to the gills with great food and thinking about all sorts of amazing things on the long train ride back home to Boystown. Sitting at a table with these prominent Chicago black professionals is kind of like having a meal with David Copperfield, Doug Henning, Harry Anderson, Penn & Teller, and even Harry Houdini…it’s like sitting there and soaking up all the secrets to the magic tricks and getting to see what happens backstage. Once you’re clued in to how things REALLY work, it’s impossible not to see it all the time. In fact, once you see this stuff…you can never “unsee it”.
It’s a simple fact, folks: white guilt really was finite. And it also was a resource that many blacks depended on for survival. It was their ace in the hole and the magic GOLDEN TICKET they always held in reserve when everything else failed and they were about to lose something they wanted…and so they’d just accuse someone white who was in their way of being a racist. If something big was at stake for the community, they’d call up Jesse, or Al, or Henry and they’d band together with other blacks to scream and yell and accuse all sorts of people of being racist to make as much noise as possible. They almost always got what they wanted in a matter of a day or two because white people lived in daily terror of being labeled “racists” by the “Justice Brothers”.
All of this has changed now.
White people are about as scared of false accusations of racism as they are of rubber Halloween spiders.
This applies to the diminished power of the Justice Brothers…but also to rank and file blacks on the ground in cities like Chicago who are realizing that their bosses are no longer afraid of being called racists if they don’t give blacks promotions they didn’t really earn or breaks they don’t deserve when they’ve done something wrong.
It is a whole new ballgame, because Democrats exhausted the national reserve of white guilt to elect Barack Obama and to eviscerate his critics for the last four years. There is just no more white guilt left for blacks to keep using the way they always have and that has created palpable anger on the ground.
Yes, 95% of blacks who head to the polls to vote will be voting for Obama in four weeks because his skin looks like theirs and race-pride is an emotional pull that just can’t be overcome.

- When Bin Laden was killed, Obama refused to release pictures of Bin Laden because ...

"It is not in our national security interest ... to allow these images to become icons to rally opinion against the United States," White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters."

- Obama blamed an obscure "anti-Muslim video" for the attacks on the embassy in Egypt, the consulate in Benghazi and other violent, anti-American demonstrations and flag-burnings in other parts of the world. The American Embassy in Islamabad spent $70,000 for ads depicting Obama and Clinton repeatedly denouncing the video.

- Now there are two separate movies about the killing of Bin Laden scheduled to be released in the near future, one of which was made with the "cooperation" of the Obama administration.

1) "Osama Bin Laden film Zero Dark Thirty release postponed"

"Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow's latest project, Zero Dark Thirty, has been delayed for release until December 2012

The film, which tells the story of the US raid on Osama Bin Laden's compound in Pakistan in 2011, will now be released after the US presidential election in November.

John Horn, from the Los Angeles Times, told the BBC Radio 4 that the film was initially scheduled to be released in October during the run-up to the election"

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-...

2)"Film dramatizing death of Osama bin Laden will debut two days before U.S. Presidential election"

-The film 'Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden' airs on November 4

-Produced by President Obama supporter Harvey Weinstein
-Democrats have touted Osama bin Laden's death as example of President's leadership - prompting suggestion that the timing is politically motivated"

"A film dramatizing the death of Osama bin Laden is set to debut next month two days before the U.S. presidential election.

The movie produced by the production company of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein will air on November 4 before President Barack Obama faces Republican challenger Mitt Romney at the polls just two days later.

Weinstein is a prominent fundraiser for Obama’s re-election campaign, which has touted bin Laden’s death as an example of the president’s leadership."

Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-22133...

So ... according to Obama, an obscure anti-Islam video causes the deaths of 4 Americans, the loss of classified documents and the destruction of US consulate in Benghazi.

Releasing pictures of dead Bin Laden would not be in US "security interests" and would become "icons to rally opinion against the United States".

BUT ... the president has NO concerns about US "security interests" or "icons rallying opinion against the US" in approving the release of TWO films detailing how Bin Laden was killed?

If violence breaks out in the Muslim world upon the release of those films, if more Americans are killed by AQ or AQ affiliates, will "authorities" descend on film makers' homes at midnight and take them away?

And what of a White House that has encouraged, approved and contributed to the making of one of those films?

The president needs to explain the contradiction between the extreme sensitivity over the release of the pictures and the video versus the approval and support of the movies.

But, there’s a large contingent of blacks who voted in 2008 who will not be voting this year.

“I saw them out there shaking their butts four years ago, shouting “It’s the Black House now!” because Obama was going to win and these people had never got up to vote before but they did because they wanted to vote for a black president. Well, that black president ain’t done diddly squat for them just as he ain’t never did nothing while he was a senator or in Washington so just you watch these butt-shakers from the past will be sitting on their butts this time. They ain’t gonna vote and they ain’t giving Old Clem the street money this time neither”, Gray Shawl explained.

This is a reference to a precinct captain here in Chicago named Clem who’s called “Old Clem” by locals and who hires the thugs to prowl the neighborhoods on election day to force black people to the polls to vote Democrat. The “street money” is the roughly $2 or $3 million that Democrats typically distribute in Chicago in black neighborhoods to secure wins in urban areas. Each thug hired for the day gets between $100 to $200 to essentially threaten people door to door to make sure they voted. Precinct captains get the list of who has voted already and if it’s a few hours before polls close and you didn’t vote yet, you’ll get a visit from the thugs to “remind you”.

I’ve been repeatedly told by the Think Squad and others that Democrats have made the strategic decision to not pay out “street money” this year to these goons…so black voter turnout in Chicago will be nowhere near what it was in 2008 as a result. Further depressing that number is the simple fact that blacks feel Barack Obama didn’t do anything for them as President…while also making life harder for them by taking away the white guilt they depended on for years.

“This is a big deal. Ain’t nobody talking about it. But it’s real. He’s in big trouble over this, but sadly we’re all in trouble too”, I remember one Thinker telling me as we were leaving the restaurant and saying goodbye last night.”I don’t know what we’re going to do now that white people aren’t scared of us any more. A lot of people are going to have to fend for themselves and it ain’t gonna be pretty. The magic’s all gone because they used it all up. And what did we get out of it? Nothing. Not a damn thing”.

**********

UPDATE: Almost as soon as I posted this article, I saw that actress Stacey Dash is under fire today for making comments about the election that are very “Think Squad” in nature. Dash is black and is best known for her role as Dionne in the 1995 film Clueless (which was like the Breakfast Club for MY generation since that came out right around when I was a senior in high school/college freshman). Dash endorsed Romney today and said voting for him is the only way to save the country from ruin.

She’s right.

She’s a Thinker.

Watch the Left do its level best to villainize her today.

I’ve told you before that the Democrat Party will collapse if blacks, gays, Jews, and Hispanics stop voting based on identity and start voting because of ideology. I’m a gay conservative who deals with the Alinsky attacks on me on a daily basis because I dared to “leave the Democrat plantation”. Dash will suffer these same attacks now too. Democrats are totalitarian in their drive to prevent their identity-bloc coalition from crumbling.

Kudos to Dash for being brave enough to speak out openly! Please send her a message at her website and thank her for her courage!

She’s an honorary Think Squad Member in my book!

By Sandra Pedicini, Orlando Sentinel

7:15 p.m. EDT, October 7, 2012

In an experiment apparently aimed at keeping down the cost of health-care reform, Orlando-based Darden Restaurants has stopped offering full-time schedules to many hourly workers in at least a few Olive Gardens, Red Lobsters and LongHorn Steakhouses.

Darden said the test is taking place in "a select number" of restaurants in four markets, including Central Florida, but would not give details. The company said there has been no decision made about expanding it.

In an emailed statement, Darden said staffing changes are "just one of the many things we are evaluating to help us address the cost implications health care reform will have on our business. There are still many unanswered questions regarding the health care regulations and we simply do not have enough information to make any decisions at this time."

Analysts say many other companies, including the White Castle hamburger chain, are considering employing fewer full-timers because of key features of the Affordable Care Act scheduled to go into effect in 2014. Under that law, large companies must provide affordable health insurance to employees working an average of at least 30 hours per week.

If they do not, the companies can face fines of up to $3,000 for each employee who then turns to an exchange — an online marketplace — for insurance.

"I think a lot of those employers, especially restaurants, are just going to ensure nobody gets scheduled more than 30 hours a week," said Matthew Snook, partner with human-resources consulting company Mercer.

Darden said its goal at the test restaurants is to keep employees at 28 hours a week.

Analysts said limiting hours could pose new challenges, including higher turnover and less-qualified workers.

"It's a real problem for restaurants," said Howard Penney, a restaurant analyst and managing director for Hedgeye Risk Management.

Darden, the world's largest casual-dining company and one of the nation's 30 largest employers, said it offers health insurance to all its approximately 185,000 employees. Many are offered a limited-benefit plan. That type of coverage is being phased out under health-care changes, which will ban annual limits for most plans.

About 25 percent of Darden workers are full time, meaning they work more than 30 hours a week. Though employees say Darden already offers traditional health insurance to full-timers, Janney Capital Markets analyst Mark Kalinowski said the cost of providing that could become higher for Darden under the Affordable Care Act. Because that law requires everyone to have health insurance, more workers will likely choose its coverage, Kalinowski said.

"Even a modest jump up in the amount of employees that decide they want the insurance you're offering could have a meaningful impact on your bottom line," he said.

Under the system Darden is testing, employees are to be scheduled for no more than 28 hours each week. They can run over that if things get busy, but Darden acknowledged they are not supposed to exceed 30 hours.

At a new Olive Garden in Stillwater, Okla., former busboy Keaton Hasty said employees were routinely limited to 29 1/2 hours.

"It was 29 1/2, and they'd kick you out," said Hasty, a college student who now works at a pharmacy. "They'd always print off a little slip every day and say who was getting close."

And Michael Walker said when he applied for a job at a new Olive Garden in Hammond, La., he was told that except for a few "key training positions," only part-time jobs were available for hourly workers.

"Without having full health care … I don't see that as an option," Walker said. He decided to stick with his current job at another restaurant.

Daily Presidential Tracking Poll


Tuesday, October 09, 2012

The full Swing State tracking update offers Rasmussen Reader subscribers a combined view of the results from 11 key states won by President Obama in 2008 and thought to be competitive in 2012. The states collectively hold 146 Electoral College votes and include Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_conten...

In the 11 swing states, Mitt Romney earns 49% support to Obama’s 47%. One percent (1%) likes another candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.

This is the first time Romney has led the daily Swing State Survey since September 19. Until today, the president had led for 17 of the previous 19 days, and the candidates had been tied twice. This survey is based on findings from the previous seven days, with most of the responses now coming since Romney’s debate win last Wednesday night.

Forty-six percent (46%) of these Swing State voters are now “certain” they will vote for Romney and will not change their minds. Forty percent (40%) are certain they will vote for the president.

In 2008, Obama won these states by a combined margin of 53% to 46%, virtually identical to his national margin.

In an experiment apparently aimed at keeping down the cost of health-care reform, Orlando-based Darden Restaurants has stopped offering full-time schedules to many hourly workers in at least a few Olive Gardens, Red Lobsters and LongHorn Steakhouses.
Darden said the test is taking place in "a select number" of restaurants in four markets, including Central Florida, but would not give details. The company said there has been no decision made about expanding it.
In an emailed statement, Darden said staffing changes are "just one of the many things we are evaluating to help us address the cost implications health care reform will have on our business. There are still many unanswered questions regarding the health care regulations and we simply do not have enough information to make any decisions at this time."
Analysts say many other companies, including the White Castle hamburger chain, are considering employing fewer full-timers because of key features of the Affordable Care Act scheduled to go into effect in 2014. Under that law, large companies must provide affordable health insurance to employees working an average of at least 30 hours per week.

For one thing moron Clinton didn't have a GOP that took a blood oath to block any kind of legislation that would help the economy and give him any kind of credit. The largest economic gains under Clinton were made possible by the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993 when the Democrats still held the House and Senate.

!
There is some evidence blocking all of Clinton's initiatives was not necessary because he probably did not hate & despise the USA.(Though he did sell the Chineese tens of millions of dollars of secret technology}

Nonsense. The economy was growing at 4$ when Clinton took office and grew faster after the Republicans took control of congress. duh
