THE CONSEQUENCES ARE NOW BECOMING APPARENT…AND IT AIN'T GONNA BE PRETTY...



For all of those who thought that by voting for Barry because he'd make sure that their personal little gravy train would stay on the tracks, as well as for all of those who made the conscious decision to sit this one out, I have a question. Do you think that your decision just might have a downside? Now I know we’ve all heard about how it is that elections have consequences, but my question is a more pointed one, and it centers around some of what we have seen take place just a mere 2 days after the re-election of Barack Hussein Obama. Now if you have been paying even the slightest amount of attention to the financial markets over that same period of time, you might have noticed a nasty little trend developing already. Wall Street has had two horrible days since Barry won his second term.

But that's not all. Because as bad as that is, stock prices are not the only thing that have been taking a pretty severe hit, not that you'd be hearing about such things anywhere in the state-controlled media, unless it's to somehow still attach some manner of blame to George Bush. Those media folks are still very busy slapping each other on the back for getting the incompetent black guy re-elected. Now it would appear that the job market, which was already in very sad shape despite Barry’s idiotic and repeated claim of somehow having created some 5 Million new jobs, is also suffering. In just the first 48 hours after this momentous election, the following major corporations announced layoffs in America (links take you to news stories about the layoffs – with details from the companies):

Energizer - The St. Louis-based company said Thursday that it expects to shed about 1,500 employees. When finished, the restructuring should lead to $200 million in pretax yearly savings, Energizer said. It aims to have most of its restructuring steps finished by the end of September 2014.

Westinghouse - Westinghouse Anniston, the contractor responsible for shutting down Anniston’s chemical weapons incinerator, has reduced its workforce by another 50 employees.

Research in Motion Limited - Research in Motion Ltd., the maker of BlackBerry smartphones, laid off about 200 people at its U.S. headquarters in Irving on Wednesday, according to a source close to the company who did not want to be named.

Lightyear Network Solutions - More than one dozen employees at a Pikeville company lost their jobs this week. Officials with Lightyear Network Solutions said they are consolidating offices in Louisville and Pikeville to save money.

Providence Journal - The Providence Journal Co. laid off 23 full-time workers Wednesday as part of a cost-cutting effort, including 16 members of the Providence Newspaper Guild and 7 non-union employees.

Hawker Beechcraft - The company says 240 employees will lose their jobs with the closing of Hawker Beechcraft Services facilities in Little Rock, Ark.; Mesa, Ariz.; and San Antonio, Texas.

Boeing (30% of their management staff) - Boeing Co. said Wednesday it plans to employ 30% fewer executives at its Boeing Defense, Space & Security unit by the end of 2012 compared to 2010 levels.

CVPH Medical Center - CVPH Medical Center has handed pink slips to 17 employees. The layoffs — nine in management and eight hourly staffers — are part of an effort to "help bolster the hospital’s financial position in 2013 and beyond," a press release said.

US Cellular - The move will result in 980 job cuts at U.S. Cellular, with 640 in the Chicago area, according to a spokeswoman. The cuts are slightly under 12 percent of the approximately 8,400 total employees U.S. Cellular had at the end of the third quarter.

Momentive Performance Materials - About 150 workers at Sistersville’s Momentive Performance Materials plant will be temporarily laid off later this month, officials said this week.

Rocketdyne - About 100 employees at Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne, most of whom work in the San Fernando Valley, were laid off Wednesday in response to dwindling government spending on space exploration, the company said. The layoffs were effective immediately, and 75 percent of them came at the facilities on Canoga and De Soto avenues, which employ about 1,100 people. The company has six sites across the Valley.

Brake Parts - The leader of an automotive parts plant in Lincoln County has told state officials that there are plans to lay off 75 workers starting in late December…The layoffs are expected to start Dec. 28 and continue in the first quarter of 2013

Vestas Wind Systems - Vestas Wind Systems A/S (VWS) is seeking to sell a stake of as much as 20 percent and said it’s reducing headcount by 3,000 to raise the staff cuts by the biggest wind turbine maker to almost a third over two years.

Husqvarna - Husqvarna AB (HUSQB), the world’s biggest maker of powered garden tools, plans to cut about 600 jobs in a move that will save 220 million kronor ($33 million) a year by 2014.

Center for Hospice New York - The Center for Hospice and Palliative Care plans to temporarily lay off as many as 40 employees next year as it embarks on a major renovation of the inpatient unit at its Cheektowaga campus.

Bristol-Meyers - Bristol-Myers Squibb is following up its lackluster third-quarter results with almost 480 layoffs. As Pharmalot reports, the company notified the New Jersey government that it would scale back in Plainsboro, which means the cuts will hit its sales operations.

OCE North America - Trumbull printer- and scanning-equipment provider Oce North America, Inc. will lay off 135 workers in three Connecticut communities, including East Hartford, according to its notice with the state Labor Department.

Darden Restaurants - The company, which was among those who had received an Obamacare waiver in the past, is looking to limit workers to 28 hours per week. A full time employee that is required to have health insurance (lest the employer pay a fine) works 30 hours per week, as defined by the Obamacare law.

West Ridge Mine - In its statement, UtahAmerican Energy blames the Obama administration for instituting policies that will close down "204 American coal-fired power plants by 2014 and for drastically reducing the market for coal.

United Blood Services Gulf - United Blood Services Gulf South region, the non-profit blood service provider for much of south Louisiana and Mississippi, will lay off approximately 10 percent of its workforce. It was a hard decision to make according to Susan Begnaud, Regional Center Director for the Gulf South region.

A layoff is tough enough for employees to have to deal with, but imagine hearing the crushing news that your office is shutting down just before Thanksgiving and Christmas. Just consider a little gift from Barry who I'm sure already has some pretty nice digs set up for himself and the family for both Holidays. But here are just some of the business closings that were announced in just the past two days. Folks as these places aren't as fortunate as our 'Fearless Leader':

So essentially what we've managed to do here, thanks to our substantial moron population, is to re-elect a guy for pretty much no other reason than because he's black and that he's willing to hand out more 'free' stuff. Meanwhile we told the white guy who actually might have had the best chance of fixing things, to go fuck himself. Absolutely brilliant! I tell ya what, I only hope that the majority of those losing their jobs are either those who voted for this asshole, Barry, or those who decided that it would be a good idea to just sit this one out, because that's what would be fair. Actually, if there was any true justice in the world, the "only" who should lose their jobs are those who voted for Barry. They should be made to face some form of more personal consequences for their ignorant, self-serving behavior in voting for this man.

But I am kinda curious about something else though. I'm wondering just how much longer this pathetic liar is going to be able to pull the wool over peoples' eyes and push the whole concept that our continuing economic situation is still to be seen as all Bush's fault. You would think that before long even some of his more idiotic supporters would finally start to question the soundness of that whole nutty concept. And yet, even with the destruction of our country now having now officially been slipped into high gear, I'm still seeing many of those who voted for this pond scum high-fiving each other and laughing and joking while they apparently think that they've really managed to pull off something great here. Just how stupid can these people be? It's like they're completely oblivious to what's going on around them.

So as those of us who actually possess a brain continue to watch things unravel, albeit now at what will most likely be a much faster clip, you'd have to be blind, or a complete retard, to see that this ain't going to end well, for anybody. And again, Barry isn't the only one that needs to be held accountable here. The 50 Million imbeciles who voted for him as well as the 14 Million who voted in 08 but sat out in 2012 should also be seen as being to blame. We had a chance to get things turned around and instead we decided to maintain our present course straight toward an abyss that is most likely to be worse than any of us can imagine. So buckle up because it's going to be very bumpy ride. And those receiving the government check better enjoy them, because it's not going to be too long when those footing the bill run out of money.
