Forward! Obama wins, dozens of companies announce layoffs

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn went through the list of businesses who were forced to lay off employees in the wake of the Obama victory, perhaps many realizing Obamacare would definitely be kicking in soon with no chance of repeal. The list is so staggering it began to sound like a school closing list after about 3 feet of snowfall.

“We’re keeping a list of all of the places that are laying workers off.  These are the ‑‑ these are just the ones that one reporter for TheBlaze gathered.  These are the ones that were just announced since the election,” Glenn said.

“Well, I tell you, this company is about to make major changes.  I have done not only the shows but I have been meeting with our executives in our company.  How do we survive, what do we have to do, how do we change.  I mean, I was ‑‑ last night I gave a speech for a fundraiser for Israel.  I get home and I have a meeting last night on healthcare, on what we’re going to do for healthcare.  It’s 10:00 at night.  Every single company is doing that.  Every single company is doing that.  Your change is ‑‑ elections have consequences, and for anybody who didn’t vote, anybody who was like, ‘You know what?  I don’t think there’s a difference.’ And apparently there’s a lot of them.  Elections have consequences.  And your life is going to change,” he said.

TheBlaze reports (Get the FULL list HERE):

In the last 48 hours, the following major corporations have 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.

• Exide Technologies -

Exide Technologies announced Thursday that it will be idling its lead-recycling operations in Laureldale and laying off 150 workers, effective no later than March 31.

• 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.

    Forward over the cliff.

    This is the plan of Obama and the progressives: collapse the economy as rapidly and as hard as you can, and then he will ask or take ‘all power necessary to ensure the nation survives,’ and  nationalize the entire industries of the nation once and for all.

    With a declaration of marital law, suspension of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the courts and all else he becomes a dictator for fact.

    We have a government being turned into a instrument of repression and it will become more dangerous than ever if not checked.

    Now that America’s Regessive’s have committed us to at least four more years of stupid, what can the rest of us expect?

    Keeping in mind the saying about not knowing history meaning you’re
    doomed to repeat it, and with an eye on this Administration’s track
    record, we can suss out some trends. -Tad Croon

    – Devaluation of the dollar and “Hyper Inflation”
    – Higher taxes (make under $250k, your NOT exempt)
    - Economic collapse (The road to Russia) – Restriction of oil, gas and coal – Alternative energy schemes (will take decades)
    - Gay marriage – Homeschooling attacked
    - Growth of the abortion industry
    - Weakening of the military to the lowest level since before WWI
    - Growth of the police state/ loss of privacy
    - Persecution of conservatives
    - Dramatic increase in illegal immigration
    - Further Dependency on Government (Guarantee of your next vote)
    - The coming “Fiscal Cliff” & “Run on the Banks” for a dash for cash
    - Massive layoffs prior to and after the “Fiscal Cliff” and Obamacare
    - More Executives Orders, such as the right of the Gov’t to seize your bank accounts in case of a national emergencies.
    - Wealth re-distribution (among our citizens, as well as 158 other countries)
    - Further loss off religious rights furthering extremist cultures
    - Rationing of Medical Care
    - More doctors will deny Medicare

    The list goes on… Congratulations America!! Your getting exactly what you deserve!!

    Cant say this is unexpected. Many small companies will either go out of business or stop hiring. If they make over $250K, ObamaCare kicks in. Affordable Care Act? ObamaCare is nothing but a way for BO to tax us to death!

    Today his photo-op new Conf was very De jaVu. He is already setting up Congress to take the fall by saying he would sign off not raising taxes for middle class right away and discuss the other tax cuts later!  It work 4 yrs ago so why would he change his tactics. The GOPs shd be very mindful of this devious/evil man. He has no intention of negotiating or compromise. The only way to deal with BO is play him with own game. Do not trust him and play your cards close to your chests!!!

    I wrote this when Obama got elected the first time ..I think it is still applies

    Death of Liberty

     Lady Liberty stands at the edge of a cliff

    overlooking a fatal drop

    onto the jagged rocks

    and

    swirling waters of tyranny

    She appears weary and defeated

    by the continuous struggle

    for freedom from within her beloved nation

    She no longer dons her majestic robes

    which lie crumpled at her shackled feet

    but instead is enshrouded in a bloody, tattered flag

    and

    her regal crown is reduced to a halo of thorns

    The extinguished torch is

    tossed aside in unwilling momentary haste

    and

    the shattered tablet is scattered atop the earth

    like tiny grains of sand

    In her arms

    which once proudly held the keys to life, liberty and happiness

    now gently cradles an eagle with a broken wing

    and

    she fears it will never soar to the heavens again

    A single tear trickles down her cheek

    and

    she hangs her head in sorrow

    then whispers sadly

    “I tended your tired, your poor and your huddled masses

    who wanted to be free

    but you took for granted all of my sacrifices

    to give you what you seek

    Your apathy

    and

    complacency

    are now destroying me”

    Right after obama won I blamed the freeloaders and stupid people for his win. I was wrong. obama won because of those that stayed home and did not vote. It is estimated that there are 90 million gun owners in America. If this is true Romney should have had at least 90 million votes. So to you people I say “when they come for our guns and our freedoms you have no one to blame but yourselves”.

    This is what the American people voted (and didn’t vote) for.  What I mean about “didn’t vote for” I’m targeting those people who didn’t get out and vote.  They are as much to blame as those who voted for Obama again.

    And as I posted on other blog sites, I could care less.  I feel horrible for those individuals who voted for Mitt Romney but will lose their jobs. But for the majority of the Americans who voted for Obama, I hope they will end up on the receiving lines of unemployment and Obamacare because this is what they voted for.

    I hate feeling this way but obviously the stupid and ignorant CAN NOT be educated.  Ignorance and stupidity are forever!

    A very good friend in Buckeye,AZ sent me an e-mail this AM and it stated the following… You won’t believe this but this AM when I went to my local strip mall 4-businesses were closing their doors.  My friend talked to several of the business owners and they stated they had no choice but to close shop after Obama was re-elected for they couldn’t afford to stay open with Obamacare and all the regulations.  One of the business owners stated he was moving his business to Texas which is a business friendly state with less taxation!    

    Take notice this is just one small strip mall in Buckeye,AZ and just one day after the election can you imagine the national implications this can lead too?  I’m going to make a bold prediction & predict 12-14% unemployment this time next year!!!!  As Obama likes to say “never forget ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES”!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I hate to be objective – but when people say ‘I hope those that voted for Obama get what they deserve’ it’s not like that’s a punishment.
    They’re getting EXACTLY what they wanted! More importantly, what they were promised.

    What they voted for….unemplyment will go up, welfare will go off the charts, and the Nanny State will thrive under the pretense of a ‘scratch my back’ mentality. 
    No one wants to work for survival and “stuff” – and the govt will be glad to oblige.
    Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to call in and initiate my free ObamaPhone….

     I can’t believe how incredibly stupid you all are!  You all went out and bought out all the stores of ammunition when Obama was elected the first time because you knew he was going to take your precious guns away, but did it happen?  Of course not!  It won’t happen now either.
    And to blame all those job layoffs on the re-election of Obama is equally as stupid.  RIM has been in trouble and failing for a long time now, especially since the iPhones appeared, and now the Galaxy phones, coincidentally just being released as the election occurred.  And the other companies have obviously been planning these layoffs for quite some time and did not just do this because Obama was re-elected.  They would have done that regardless.
    Furthermore, the “Fiscal Cliff” will not happen, but even if it does, your should remember that the cliff was only set up by law because the republicans in Congress would not have allowed the debt ceiling expansion otherwise.  So blame yourselves for that one.
    One last thing – The Bush tax cuts were passed early on in the Bush administration in an attempt to disperse out the surpluses built up during the Clinton years, and those Republicans, and Bush himself, knew that they could only be temporary.  That’s why they specified an expiration date for them to return to the normal tax situation, which was conveniently timed to come up during the next administration when deficits had risen and would likely make the tax cuts less palatable.  So now that lets you jerks blame Obama for “raising taxes” when in fact all he has done so far is let your tax cuts simply expire.  It is quite plain that those tax cuts did not help the economy at all, even during the Bush administration years, so they proved to be nothing more than a distribution of more wealth to the wealthy.  Great plan!

    They were told to hold off until after the election. At least that was the corporations. The smaller businesses were waiting for a Romney win, hoping business would pick up and the repeal of o-care.

     As far as tax cuts go why do we owe so much in taxes?  I earn my money and why do I owe some of my money to some one I do not know who it is going and how it is going to be used.  Why can’t I determine who I help and set parameters as to what is required to get my help.  Giving people money with no requirements as to putting time limits or doing some work to get the help creates a dependent and not an independent person.  My wife and I help our neighbors and donate to charities that we have researched and are helping people to help themselves, not supporting people who expect something for nothing.  I believe in self responsibility and expect others to work toward that also.  There are those who are not able to take care of themselves and I have no problem helping them from now on if needed but there are many who expect help from now on and they are capable of doing for themselves.  If they are to lazy to work for the help then they can do without or do the requirements set before them in a responsible structure and get the help until they are able to be able to supply for themselves.

    For those of you who blame Bush for the crash is 2008 it was Bill Clinton who caused the crash not Bush in 1995 or 1996 Clinton signed into law what I call “the affordable housing act for skum that can’t afford a house”!   In Clinton’s legislation he forced & let me stress “FORCED”  banks and lending institutions to give loans to people who couldn’t afford housing most these skum bags took advantage buying homes $300,000-$400,000 without putting a penny down & they were grossing $20,000-$30,000… 

    Only a moron would try to buy a house with that kind of a gross income so what happened…in a little over a decade the housing market crashed and burned not because of Bush but the piece of trash called Clinton who by the way was impeached for being a skum bag like the people he put into housing they couldn’t afford!!!!!!!   I’m sick of hearing people bash Bush get the facts straight it was “CLINTON” not Bush who caused the crash in 2008 which caused evrything else to snowball from that point!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I also advocate a new federal law which states anyone receiving any govt. benefit whatsoever will be tested every 6-months for drug violations…one violation and your banned from receiving govt. benefits for life…. This will reduce people receiving govt. benefits rather quickly in my opinion…

     You reminded me of exit poll information I came across yesterday. I can’t remember the exact numbers but you don’t need them to figure out what they are saying about liberal America.

    About 55% of the votes for Obama came from people who have low or no income. Nearly 70% of Obama voters identified themselves as liberals. The people doing the exit poll asked all voters to answer 10 questions about current events. Some 82% of Romney voters were able to answer most or all of the questions. Only 12% of Obama voters were able to answer most or all the questions.  About 40% of Obama voters were only slightly aware that four American’s had been killed in a terrorist attack and about 85% did not know where the event took place. Some 80% of Obama voters believed that hurricane Sandy was caused by man made pollution. 80% were unable to identify what FEMA  stood for. The Obama group had the highest number of “uniformed” voters sense they had been taking polls. I think they said they had been doing this for 14 years.

     Unfortunately I was not paying attention to who conducted the polls so I can’t point you to a web page that gives all of this information. If I find the information again I will post the link so all will have access to the facts about liberal America.

    It’s reality.  Obama has not YET nationalized all the busineses.  Just Government motors.  Haven’t quite told business how many they have to employ–just what they have to provide in health care benefits.  So, for now, businesses can still do what is in their interest, or what they have to do to stay open.  I bet all those who can will move their business out of the country.  The rich get poorer and the poor stay poor under communism (Obamunism).  Elections have consequences.  Magical thinking is NOT reality.

    If anyone is paying attention, all these gold buying places are getting their money from somewhere.  I tried to buy some gold from a couple of stores and got the cold shoulder.  Debt is at an all time high, (I am in the financial services industry) income is on the decline.  If people sell off all there potential assets and find themselves in need of assistance, all they have to do is ask the government for help. The ultimate goal of our current government is to make the public fully dependent.  Obama has a plan, that is to make America competitive on a global basis, but first we have to accept a third world standard of living.  I do not find this acceptable and will fight it with everything I have, I hope I am not alone.

     They say that unions were big part of him winning also.
    What happened is he hustled the vote for all those he knew would not vote for him and didn’t let them vote.Like our military. He lied to the women and many were stupid enough to believe that Romney would take away their freedoms and not give them equal pay Never mind this is a crock.. When he pays the women of the white house differently from the men.He got the Hispanics to think he was their buddies by proclaiming executive order to allow easy citizenship for them. He changed a core belief on the advice of his daughter in marriage between a man and a woman to same sex marriage to engage the gay community to his side. He acted like he was offended by the truths Romney brought to light when he offended consistently in opposition to Romney. His and Biden’s answer to all questions that they didn’t want to answer or didn’t know the answer was always in essence,”you are lying”, when in fact that is what they were doing. He frightened the seniors into thinking Ryan was going to push them over a cliff.That is a tactic democrats always use even before Obama. He made the college age kid think that he was interested in paying for their education.
     Romney played the campaign being honest and classy and smart experienced businessman with experience and all the good things he had done Obama made them look bad. He demonized the successful, the money he paid, everything good became a negative. His moral values were even demonized. His beliefs of right to life, his beliefs in marriage between a man and a woman.
    Romney never stood a chance against this unrelenting barrage of lies and manipulation against the American people to get people to vote for Obama.
    I wish whatever conservatives that are out there who did not vote for Romney realize what you did by staying home. With all the early voting and the absentee ballots unless you are in the hospital, there is no excuse for not voting. I hope you are happy.
     What is so sad about all those manipulated voters who happily made all efforts to vote for their happy wonderful president. They are too stupid to know how they have been fooled and lied too. They don’t even know what they have done.

     Just like all the Obama supporters you just do not pay attention to what is going on in this world. You haven’t heard about the treaty that Obama and Clinton are working on that will make it against international law for Americans to own guns and foreign countries will have a say so in what we do. This is a move to help us lose our sovereignty where Americans have the say so in what we do.The fiscal cliff we are right at the edge and it started the day after Obama was voted in. I guess you just don’t keep up or you listen to the liberal media who won’t tell you anything Obama does not want you to hear. 
    The taxes we don’t have it is only beginning. The taxes that the rich will give will not run Washington for a week. We are losing 500 dollar tax credit per child. The earned income credit is not in there.Before it is over with, if any of you pray, you will be praying for Bush tax cuts. Obama EPA rules will put prices of electricity out of this hemisphere. Gas he said before he was elected the first time, he wanted it to be seven dollars a gallon to get us off gas. He has got taxes, taxes, and more taxes coming into play. You will see, you don’t think so, but it will happen.

    What is the impact of the election? Something fundamental has been changed and lost. America is no longer the constitutional republic of the Founders. This election was the tipping point. The country as a whole can no longer be saved. The debt load and regulations will destroy the economy and deprive us of what liberty we have left.
     Our Founders didn’t trust democracy or centralized power. The will of the people was to be directly  expressed through the House. In other cases it was to be indirectly felt. as in the Electoral College. The Founders knew that direct democracy where the will of the people was unchecked was and is a dangerous form of government. the people can be persuade by passion or immediate self interest. The check and balances were not only a limit on the branches but on the people. The Constitution is about balance and wisdom as to human nature. The Founders also knew that power corrupts and divided it so that it was decentralized and kept local.
    After this election what remains of this system? We have a government that is immune from the wishes of its citizens, regulations that make no sense, taxes that always increase and a government whose role is ever expanding. Rommey was right about the 47%. The people have become part of the dismantling of the very constitutional system that protects them. Government tells us what size soft drinks to buy, what health care we have to have, whether we can water crops  because that water will be diverted to save a fish, our library books are tracked, drones will fly over our cities, our borders unprotected, government mandate morality and our children can’t even operate a lemonade stand. When does this become a tryanny? Perhaps it is.
    I think it is time not for another rally but for an “Continental Congress”. The purpose would be to argue about the relation of the individual to the state and whether this union can or should be saved. At the very least it could usher in an era of civil disobedience. At most it will begin a dialogue over whether the government is a tyranny. It would serve as a warning that either the agenda of the government is modified or there is the possibility of civil unrest. What is need is one man to stand in front of the tank and say no.

    Unfortunately that’s just a petition to the White House, granted if it gets the number of signatures, then the White House would have to OFFICIALLY reply to a petition for secession… which would be a huge news story and give the movement much needed press.

    People need to start working to get secession on the ballot in those states that allow referendums. Unfortunately, Texas has no signature-based referendum system, and Rick Perry is a globalist who doesn’t want to secede, he just said that because there was a pro-secession candidate running against him and rapidly growing in the polls.

    The question you should ask first is how many jobs were lost? Only about half that many have been created. Job creation is barely keeping up with the population increases — especially when you consider how many NON-Americans are taking those jobs. Obama’s policies have killed more jobs than they “saved”! They are going to cost many more before he’s done.

    I’m just waiting for the fiscal cliff we’re going over next year because the Democrats refuse to do a budget. QE3 is propping up the country FOR NOW! It won’t last much longer. Obama’s administration has already spent us into oblivion. Taxes will go up and the quality of life in American is going to hell. You won’t be cheering Obama when a loaf of bread will cost $10 out of money you don’t have!

    I “hope” you aren’t one of those people who is dependent on the government for your survival, because you are in for a rude awakening in the near future when other countries refuse to buy our debt and the dollar collapses.

    I would rather believe that Obama got in again because of fraud then to believe that the American people are that stupid! It’s going to be another four years of destruction for our Republic and our Constitution. It will be a miracle if this country survives as a free nation. But then, people like you have NO CLUE as to what is really going on! It seems you would rather have a dictator than a President.

I have never seen as much hate, racial slurs until this Election. 2008 it wasn’t this bad. You want to blame Obama, I suggest you start with Bush! President Clinton had the lowest deficient for the first time in a long time. Obama inherited a huge deficit from Bush.

    Many of the medium sized companies, with a little creative thinking can split up into several small companies, those who can keep employee levels below 50. By doing so they can avoid the Obamacare requirements. Also, cutting the workweek below 30 hrs. a week can also do this. In many European systems the work week is short just like this  (although i believe this is just a job sharing scheme). This of course does not allow a living wage, but this is not important
    when the real goal is total socialism and Government control. We will not return to a nation of good until pain is felt by those who have decided not to vote and eliminate the underclass from it’s new found majority.

    Taxes are money that WE earn. Whether earned by a rich guy or a middle class guy, that money is the person’s who earned it. It is not a redistribution of wealth if the person who earns it, keeps it, spends it or hides it in their basement. If there is a surplus, it belongs to the people that paid the taxes.  The government does not OWN our money or the work we do to earn it.  So a tax cut is really the government NOT taking money we earned.  The government is not entitled to it.  And we are now at the point where those who pay no taxes think they are entitled to our earnings.

    It’s obvious you have NO IDEA what it takes to run a business. For one thing it takes making a profit to build the company and hire more people. If the government is taking more and more out of the companies, there is LESS to build on and no way to create new jobs.

    You seem to conveniently forget a few things like Clinton had a Republican Congress the last six years of his term. THEY are the ones who balanced the budget — NOT Clinton. By the way — the national debt still went UP under Clinton in spite of the huge tax increases that were put through. The country was already sliding into a recession when Bush took office. Then 9/11 happened and we went into a tail spin. The Bush tax cuts helped to turn us around and every year the economy was growing by 3% to 4%. Not like the anemic growth we’ve had since Obama took office. All the trillions that the Fed has pumped into the banks (to big to fail) has not helped.

    Another FACT is that Bush’s deficits the first six years averaged $500 billion a year until Pelosi and the Dems took over the House. After that they doubled to over a trillion a year because of all the pork add-ons by Dems to the defense budget.

    Know the FACTS for a “change”!

    The real hate mongering for years has come from all the Dem lies. Obama is the most divisive President we have ever had. If you want to continue believing the lies — that is your problem, but re-electing Obama has made it the whole county’s problem!

    You think things are bad now — just wait until all the tax increases next year when the Bush tax cuts expire. We will be LUCKY if we don’t go into a depression under Obama’s policies!

    China IS the world’s economy now. With the way they do business worldwide, I wouldn’t be surprised if their currency will be the future. I don’t think the dollar will collapse overnight cause that will affect everyone on a global scale. But how do we know China and other wealthier governments aren’t trying to put in a system where the dollar will no longer be the standard? THEY are the ones with leverage, not us. All it takes is for them to not buy our US Treasuries and the dollar plunges. But as was already mentioned, I don’t think they risk this for fear of destabilizing the world economy. Looking at our own situation, it just seems our politicians create policy for the sake of keeping us afloat but with very little or no results. With the mass exodus of companies losing business to his policies and leaving for other countries, US production will diminish resulting in lack of finances to pay off debt. Once this happens, I wouldn’t be surprised when China, etc…refuses to bail us…again. It’s inevitable and only a matter of time when our ship starts to sink. I pity the kids today who will inherit all this mess.

     Wow, are you ever wrong!  I do not now, nor have I ever in my several decades of adult life received any entitlements, and I’ll bet I pay way more for my phone(s) than you do. I have always been an entrepreneur and small business owner, and I have had lots of struggles while watching others live off the doles that I too wish could be better controlled or in many cases seriously curtailed.  I don’t really care about the Bush Tax Cuts as such, but am adamantly in favor of real tax reform.  We need to totally revise, if not completely remove that IRS code to make it fairly apply to everyone and not favor one particular class of people or companies over another as it does now.  I would like to see the IRS gone completely and replace the tax code with a simple national sales tax.  That would insure everyone who spends money that was earned tax free no matter how it was earned pays tax whenever they buy something or otherwise spend their money.  You want to save your money, no problem and no tax.  There would no longer be any tax evasion for unreported “income” until it was actually spent.  What could be fairer than that?  Oh, I forgot – that would eliminate thousands of jobs for IRS workers, accountants that are currently required to keep track of our current tax obligations, and who knows what other jobs. Mandating and supporting unneeded and wasteful jobs is no different than any other entitlement you folks want to eliminate.  The only difference is that adds intermediaries into the path of the distribution of the entitlements.

     Danny Black, you really got that right!  That’s exactly how I feel and I am sure we could seriously improve our society if we actually tried to do some of these things to straighten out a totally out of control system.  I, too, contribute and help locally, and it amazes me to see the large number of people seeking help who really want to do better, but the rules of the system prevent them from doing so.  I’ll never have the necessary influence to actually be able to do anything about it though.  I have tried on many occasions over the last thirty or forty years to do so, but get blocked every time.  I guess it’s time I give it another try.  Maybe the political climate is ripe for some change now.  And I believe the election of Obama may actually be helpful rather than the killer Glenn seems to think he is. Example: If Obama is a job killer, then why all the clamor about him engaging in a war on coal when the SW area of Pennsylvania, a huge coal-based economic area, overwhelmingly supported and voted for him?  Regulations to protect our environment and make for a safer workplace in the coal industry must not have killed those jobs.

    These are the discussions we need to be having, not the destructive criticisms and blame everyone seems to prefer.  That’s why I voted for Obama instead of Romney, not because I am a liberal or a democrat. I never heard anything concrete from Romney about solutions (other than pure, unsubstantiated thetoric), but only heard about defeat of the other side, getting rid of planned parenthood and other similar things instead of suggesting a better way to help, and immediately eliminating “Obamacare” instead of proposing a good alternative.  His constant flip-flopping to accommodate the audience in front of him at the time just made him seem to me like he really had no beliefs himself, but only whatever seemed appropriate at the time.  Now, I just hope and pray that Congress can start working together with the President for all our good instead of just one side working to defeat everything the other side is trying to do, even when they supported those efforts, and in some cases, even introduced those efforts when their side held the presidency.  Both sides do this, not just one.  It just happens it’s the Republicans’ turn since the Democrats hold the White House right now.

    People need to work together, and posts like Glenn’s only serve to create worse situations and separate people instead of trying to bring them together.  Get constructive, like you used to be, Glenn, not destructive like you have gotten to be lately.

    Many of us have been sounding the alarm bells for months now about the importance of this election.  I have come to the conclusion that it was like casting pearls before swine.  We, the ones who have a true love of our country and believe in its founding principles evidently were in the minority.  We cannot save people from themselves.  I am praying for the best for our country but am preparing for the worst.  Let the Obama supporters experience the consequences of their giving this man four more years.  Sad to say, but let them fall and fail even though they will drag us along with them.  After four years they will have no one but themselves to blame when they wonder what happened.  I plan to stand up for my Christian values and try to ward off as much of the government nonsense as possible but I have definitely reached a point where I know I, personally, cannot change peoples’ minds and hearts.  Only God can do that.  Keep up the good work Mr. Beck and God Bless.

     You’re right!  I wasn’t paying attention to this non-issue.  Whether or not small arms ore controlled here has no effect on the economy, environment, medical care, social security or anything else that is really important.  But, even if Obama did what you say, I doubt it was done with the intent to take over control of our small arms.  It was more likely to attempt to control international trade in serious military grade weapons and their supply to terrorist groups.  Also, do you really believe that anything the U.N. does could actually affect our nation’s laws and small arms control?  That would require new laws for gun control here in the U.S., which I have never heard Obama talk about except possibly for trying to control ultra-high grade automatic weapons that serve no useful purpose to an ordinary citizen.  What’s the problem here?

     ”There you go again!”  You said “He frightened the seniors into thinking Ryan was going to push them over
    a cliff.That is a tactic democrats always use even before Obama. He
    made the college age kid think that he was interested in paying for
    their education.”

    A tactic democrats use?  What about all the deliberate destructive lying and shouting done by imported paid disruptors sent to all the town meetings immediately after Obama took office designed to keep the democratic congress people from speaking and explaining their positions?  What about all the lies intended to scare seniors into thinking Obama was wanting to create “death panels” even though that was a republican sponsored section of legislation that had already been in effect before Obama’s election?  What about the lies spread to instill fear in seniors that Obama was going to take away their health care coverage and force them into a socialist national program?  Those last two worked, by the way, as evidenced by numerous of my friends who actually believed that crap.

    Talk about calling the kettle black!  Those lies and fear mongering outbursts are what I think began all this divisiveness, and you just continue to fan the flames.

    NO ONE is “entitled” to a high paying job. Nobody.  I don’t even need to say a lot on this.  As a human being, existing on this earth, you were BORN with only one entitlement, God’s grace/forgiveness.  In fact the USA, until a few days ago, had the expressly permanent agenda, stemming from the Founding Fathers, of SECURING a human being’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. No other government in world history has written into their constitution the government’s mandate to SECURE our rights, which can only be fully ratified by intense military might.  Those days are over now.  I reside in an apartment in Wisconsin, a state that used to belong to a thing called the UNITED states. I think we should rename this land, “The Republic of the Entitled” because I work and I don’t consider myself a citizen of a government that doesn’t recognize my right to prosper, but instead penalizes prosperity through unjust taxes, such as ObamaTax (aka Obamacare, aka Affordable Care Act). I refuse to refer to Barack Obama as my leader, he does not represent my values in any way shape or form.  You won’t succeed now, neither will I.  Every dollar you make will be siphoned absolutely by this blatantly Communist regime.  I know you don’t believe me but just watch this movie…it doesn’t end well.

    How are people going to pay for ObamaCare if nobody has any money because of having to pay all the other taxes we’ll have?Maybe in order to stay in business ObamaCare wil have to be the way employes get paid or something. That way whoever doesn’t need it that month can get paid some other way instead. This can’t become America: land of vacant lots and empty buildings. Really, it can’t.

    As I said before — YOU have NO CLUE as to what is going on. The Fed is devaluing the dollar to devalue the debt and also to keep the economy from imploding by printing up more worthless fiat currency. China knows what they are up to and is starting to refuse to buy our bonds. Our credit rating has already gone down and it’s going down again. When it does, our dollar will stop being the world currency.

    If you took EVERYTHING the rich have, it wouldn’t be enough to pay down the debt. What is really bankrupting us in the interest on the debt which keeps compounding all the time. The Fed likes that so they create more debt with QE1, 2 and now QE3. Why don’t you do a little research before you claim that the dollar can’t collapse or that we will never stop being the world currency for trade or would that burst your little bubble?

    I know — it’s easier to claim that it’s not true than to search for the truth! Only a “useful idiot” follows the Pied Piper without question.

    Do you think that even ONE small business was bailed out by Obama? NO WAY!  The money went to his supporters and the unions through the TARP program. You remember — those “green” companies that got billions of OUR MONEY and then filed bankruptcy! Then there was the ones who shipped the JOBS overseas.

    YES, those POOR companies should have been left to fail! It would have saved the PEOPLE trillions!

    For those that commented that a number of the companies listed were already in trouble before the election so the election had nothing to do with the layoffs, like my small company most of them were hanging on until the election with the hope that Romney would be elected and there would be at least a chance to come from under the regulations and taxes and have a shot at turning it around.  After the election that chance was gone and we know it will not turn around so why bother any longer.  I for one no longer want the workload, the worry, the long hours so that I can fill out paperwork and send most of the incentive to the government. Rather I will lay off the employees, sell the business if I can, sell the inventory and take care of myself and my family.  And in the meantime all that come into my store wanting a donation….apply for a federal grant.

    Although some of the companies listed, like RIM, were in deep trouble for other reasons, I don’t doubt that their will be ramifications because of Obama’s reelection. I hope The Blaze keeps a list of the jobs lost since election day, but is also careful about being honest about the reasons for the layoffs or closings.  IMHO, there should be 2 lists, one to show overall job loss since Nov. 6,  and the other to show that the specific reason from the business owner for the layoffs or closings were due to the reelection of Obama.

    To say that they would have gotten the axe “no matter what” is just wrong.  True, some companies have been in trouble for years, but 4 of those years were under an Obama administration, which obviously didn’t help their situation.  Obama getting a 2nd term ended any “hope” or “change” for their situation to improve, so because of that, we are seeing more layoffs. 

    Sandy will surely cause temporary layoffs and probably some business closures as well, but again the current economic situation under Obama’s rule will contribute to those jobs being lost. 

    Increased population doesn’t cost jobs, it provides a need for more jobs, providing conditions are in place to allow the entrepreneurial spirit to thrive.  Obama seems to be doing everything he can to squelch that spirit.

    The citizens of this country exercised their right to vote. The ensuing results will be catastrophic to this country. An unfettered Obama no longer has anything to fear from anyone of consequence. If we think that we have seen assaults on the constitution during his first term, wait until he unleashes his father’s “dream” on this country during his second. We didn’t know anything about him prior to his 2008 campaign and much that was unsavory about the man was hidden, systematically derided, ignored or attacked by the mainstream media.

    Democracy only works within the structure of the republic when the citizenry use the freedom to vote to ensure liberty. When, instead, they choose to relinquish freedom in exchange for the state sponsored theft of the hard won increase of others, the republic cannot long survive.

    There are only a few reasons why the people of this country would have voted for a man who has proven beyond any doubt, the ludicrous failure of his policies, whether social or fiscal. At least it seems to the ignorant to simply be failure. To those who understand the writings of Barack Hussein Obama, it is patently clear that he is following the advice of the Communist Manifesto to the letter. His policies have only one outcome: the destruction of the economy of the United States through punitive taxation that castigates success, thus destroying incentive for citizens to attempt to better their plight above that of the lowliest peasant.

    This is socialism in its’ purest form. Obama has done little else besides create a class warfare mentality that has divided this country more effectively than any Marxist policy ever could have.

    The citizenry of this great nation have, in the space of one single generation, lost the vision of the great challenge and admonition posed by John F. Kennedy. Now, instead of “Ask not what your country can do for you…rather, ask what YOU can do for your country.”, the sentiment is more akin to, “I exist, therefore….the rest of you owe me a living.” They have been engulfed by the vast paucity of substance of the ideals of Occupy Wall Street, ACORN and Marx.

    Companies close down all the time for all sorts of reasons. I actually read the article because I was interested to see if any of the closures had anything to do with Obama – Obamacare etc. I actually thought the headline must be right when it said “Glenn went through the list of businesses who were forced to lay off employees in the wake of the Obama victory, perhaps many realizing Obamacare would definitely be kicking in soon with no chance of repeal.” I wanted to read on.However, having read the articles about the first 3 companies listed, the closures have nothing to do with Obama or Romney or anything of that nature. The first, Energizer, was closing because less people use batteries nowadays because of the popularity of electronic devices. The second, Exide, was closing because of “swings in the lead market” and costs associated with getting the odours under control for the area where the factory was in, because the residents had been complaining over the last 10 years and it had been fined about $400,000 by the State for numerous violations during that time. The third, Anniston, was on a long and scheduled plan to close down this chemical weapons incinerator, because they are destroying a stockpile of chemical weapons, no longer needed and the incinerator will be closed down once all the chemical weapons are destroyed. I know some people are upset because Obama has been re-elected but my point is research yourself, not everything reported might in fact be true:Here are the full quotes about the companies when you follow the linkFirst company listed:Energizer – “plans to cut roughly 10 percent of its workforce as part of a cost-cutting overhaul. It states: “closing of the Maryville facility was an extremely difficult decision but necessary because of dramatic changes in the overall battery market over the past three to four years. With the increased use of rechargeable electronic devices with multiple features, primary battery sales continue to decline in developed markets worldwide.”I know Obama is unpopoular in some quarters but it is hard to blame him for the increased use of electronic devices and thus, the reduced use of batteries/Second company listed:Exide – “This decision was based on several factors, including the dramatic swings in the lead market and the high capital investment needed, due to regulatory requirements, to remain operational in Reading (Laureldale),” Exide has a history of odor-control problems associated with its lead-smelting operation. Within the past decade, the company has been fined about $400,000 by the state for numerous violations. Still, the state Department of Environmental Protection renewed the plant’s five-year air quality permit in 2010, stating that Exide had made several improvements to its operation and there have been fewer air quality-related complaints.Swings in the lead market and costs associated with getting the odours under control for the area where the factory is in, arising out of complaints from residents over the last 10 years –again hard to blame that on Obama.Third company listed:Anniston – The company that operated Anniston’s chemical weapons incinerator has 50 fewer workers today as part of continuing efforts to close down the facility. The facility reached another closure milestone and so no longer needs the labor. Workers there destroyed the last of Anniston’s chemical weapons stockpile in September 2011 and has been undergoing closure efforts ever since. We have a schedule with intermittent milestones and this is the next milestone we’re getting ready to achieve They are on a scheduled plan to close down this chemical weapons incinerator, because they are destroying a stockpile of chemical weapons no longer needed. I think regardless of who won the US election, all this may have happened.

Unlike others their goal is to price us out of ins. rather than just dropping it. People voted on an issue that they supported rather than the big picture .  Now they will see all the things Obama said in the first election com true, higher taxes, higher food prices, and utlity bills.

    I live in West Texas and work for a small company that hires contract drivers for oil field work! All of our employees that were hired out to Halliburton in OK were laid off in September. Just a note, most of our drivers are minorities! Halliburton started last month hiring  for 28 hour work week with no benefits! This morning I learned our machanics that work for Pioneer will be laid off due to a shut down of a yard in Decatur (Allford)! We will be out of business! Already by the time we pay payroll, taxes, huge unemployment, and overhead the company is no longer making any money! I am the only help in the office when there were 5 only a few years ago! The company has gone from near 80 employees to 3 and we will be gone soon! I realize ours is a small company, but when you add hundreds more small companies it is going to add up! Oh, and by the way, $250,000 is less than what a three month payroll looks like in this small company! So much for small business!

    Expect the layoffs to continue and companies will shelter themselves in states that willfully defy the Federal Government and the IRS.  I wish someone would spell out the major difference between government investing in commerce and the private sector controlling all aspects of commerce.  When government enacts regulation and it fails, it is an act of God to remove it and usually lawmakers will spin the failures on other areas and bear no responsibility to the issue.  When the private sector attempts a business proposition it must weigh the consequences if unsuccessful and cannot afford spin or apathy as a solution must be found or layoffs and bankruptcy will ensue.  Since it takes little to no accountability to be a lawmaker, we should strip any lawmaker the ability to enact laws without penalty.  I say that any lawmaker should be succeptible to being removed from office if the people wish to vote on it.  Accountability makes one think quicker and speak slower.  If only we REALLY ran this country and stopped thinking others would do this for us which is apathy within itself!

    I got laid off yesterday, this was the 7th job I’ve lost since Obama was elected, I even gone 3 years without work, moved 8 times (including move to foreclosure, move due to city closing down mobile home park, and most recently, move due to landlord selling the house because they couldn’t afford it) -so I guess you  might say I know first hand what to expect… and I don’t like it

    There’s a joint custody involved, but at this point, I don’t care whether my ex husband likes the idea of me leaving the state with our only child, I emotionally/ mentally can withstand what’s to come financially….

    From Forbes:

    According to Schnatter, the cost to his company of providing his employees with a healthcare benefit will run about $5 to $8 million each year—a cost that pales in comparison to what he’s spending on Papa John’s promotion whereby the company is giving away 2 million pizzas because quarterback Peyton Manning asked them to in a TV commercial. The price of that adventure is estimated to be about $24 to $32 million in revenues—four times the cost of providing his employees with the healthcare coverage they need.

    Count on Beck to support the greedy corporate elite who already make too much and oppose the people like you and I, workers, who do not make enough to make ends meet.

    Glenn Beck: corporate shill.
