Proggies Act Surprised ….. We Told You So!

“On Obamacare……

As a result of obAMATEUR’s re-election and the highly improbability that ObamaCare being repealed, we’ve had several businesses come forward and state that this is going to affect the number of workers they have and hours they can work – two of them are  CEO of Papa Johns John Schnatter and Applebees franchisee owner Zane Tankel.  While these aren’t the only two, they are the latest business owners who have publicly stated the harmful impact that ObamaCare will have on their businesses, their workers’ jobs and benefits.

The proggies are “shocked”.  They took to Twitter to demonize these business owners (hey they learned from the professional agitator using Alinski, his mentor’s tactics) , and pushing for others to boycott their businesses.  Hey you proggies – Can’t say you weren’t warned!  Business owners have been out there telling you exactly what you had coming to you if obAMATEUR was re-elected and ObamaCare stayed the law of the land.  Of course, you chose not to listen to those warnings.  It doesn’t make it these business owner’s problems! We told you so!!!

On to raising taxes……..

obAMATEUR is consumed with obsession about raising taxes on the “rich”.  We hear it in the press about his “wanting to make a deal” with Republicans for the so-called “balanced approach”.  All we have heard so far is the raising taxes on the “wealthy” – some balanced approach!  The complicit media (aka the propaganda arm of the White House) has done nothing but interview Republican and talk about raising taxes.  They have yet to question the obAMATEUR about the other half of the “balanced approach” – spending cuts.  Recently, on Good Morning America, they stated concern how “spending cuts will affect the economy”!  Excuse me?  We have seen MASSIVE government spending stagnate an economy.  We have proof that tax cuts work – several instances in fact.  Even the CBO disagrees with the lopsided “balanced approach” on raising taxes – Raising taxes has nothing to do with our fiscal cliff and getting our finances in order..

Just how much deficit reduction would Obama’s tax hikes on the rich necessarily accomplish?

Nothing, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Letting tax rates rise to Clinton era levels for those families making over $250,000 a year would only raise $824 billion over ten years. That is not even enough revenue to undo the sequester that Obama promised “will not happen” during his final debate with Mitt Romney.”

If we gave you your way and CONFISCATED ALL THE WEALTH of the so-called targeted “wealthy”, you would have enough money to run the government for a few months.  That’s it!!!  We have a spending problem in this country.  This pResident who has ran up the debt than the first 42 presidents COMBINED!  Again, it is not our problem that you PREDICTABLY ignored FACTS and re-elected this buffoon.  We told you so!!!

More recent higher jobless claims ….

We now have 439,000 new jobless claims for the first full week after the disastrous reelection of the “one we have been waiting for” – the obAMATEUR and I do mean AMATEUR!  Pennsylvania and Ohio led the pack.  Two unionized states.  Two crucial states won by obAMATEUR.  The obAMATEUR sycophants are trying to put the best possible spin on these numbers — saying that they’re due to layoffs from Hurricane Sandy.  What utter CRAP!.  Layoffs in Ohio?  Pennsylvania?  Heavy union states?  We had New Jersey turn away NON UNION ELECTRICAL WORKERS, as an example of their dedication to union labor even in a disaster such as this!!!!

These layoffs are the direct result of re-electing this anti-business failure (a failure at everything he has put his hands on) of a pResident.  Businesses have been struggling that last four years.  There has been no recovery.  There have been BILLIONS of dollars spent by these businesses to comply with new regulations coming from this White House and the EPA.  The EPA will soon unleash the flood of new so-called “clean air” rules that will send energy costs through the roof.  Taxes on small business owners are going to rise.  Capital gains taxes on investors – going up.  There is absolutely NOTHING on the horizon with four more years of obAMATEUR that gives one iota of hope for a better business and economic climate ahead.  So … it’s time to go lean … and that’s just what these businesses are doing.  They’re shedding employees to get under the ObamaCare threshold. They’re looking for ways to get more efficient so that they can rid themselves of unnecessary workers.  As a result we see jobless claims are on the rise .. the highest number since the middle of 2011.

The obAMATEUR, his sycophants, drones and lemmings want to blame it on the storm.  Well .. .they’re half-right.  It’s a storm all right, but not Hurricane Sandy.  It’s the storm of taxes and regulations that are coming with the reelection of an anti-business, tax and spend president.

Elections have consequences.  Here’s your pink slip.  Enjoy.  And if you’re an obAMATEUR voter, I’m enjoying it right along with you.  You did it to yourselves.  We told you so!!!

    Should have known this would your inane rant. I am sure you are one of the 1%ers and are going to have to pay taxes at the same rate as was paid during the Clinton years (which were just horrible). Those who are starting these ridiculous actions of laying off employees will find that people will buy their pizza’s from small, local stores and eat at locally owned restaurants. That is good. These are greedy CEOs that make millions each year and do not want to provide health insurance for their employees. I hope their businesses go under and the locals pick it up along with the hard working employees. Papa John’s pizza is crappy anyway. And he is giving away over 2 million pizzas this year. Maybe he needs to rethink that proposal.
    Further, Republicans are the poorest losers in the world. They believe they are entitled to the White House and always resent a Democratic President. Too bad. You lost!! You lost because you had a horrible candidate who no more understands the average person out there than an innate object. He believed he was entitled to the Presidency and that it could be bought by the rich and super pacs. The main thing that gave encouragement as a result of this election is that democracy still works in this country and that the Presidency cannot be bought. I am very glad all those wealthy persons who poured millions into Romney’s election lost their money!!! As Martha would say “That is a good thing.”

      Thanks, Velma, but you really didn’t need to go to the trouble of posting again. However, every little thing you add to the vast composite picture of the Loony Left is appreciated.

      Let’s just take a look at what you seem to think constitutes political discourse, today.

      Hoping large businesses fail.
      Papa John’s pizzas are “crappy”.
      You don’t think the Dems bought the election.
      You gloat over the idea of people losing their money.
      You don’t approve of a big business giving away food.
      You hate people who have more money than you do.


      Why don’t you come back someday and justify working for a business which does so much work overseas? That might be interesting.

      Oh, and don’t forget that email to your bosses, under your own name, telling them how you hate them because of their income and how you will gloat when they get hit with higher taxes. You do realize that if Barry raises the corporate tax rate, they might move the whole shebang to Ireland, instead of just one branch, don’t you?

      Now THAT would be funny

      Or talk about politics. That would be a nice change. Why don’t you explain to us how vastly more successful the Big Government, top-down, Central Authority model of government control has led to increased economic prosperity, a better way of life, and increased personal liberty for those living under it?

      Not here, you understand. We are just in the process of “fundamentally transforming” what has been, in the past, a nation governed by the Constitutional principles of small federal government, and the argument from the Left is that we can’t judge the success of this transformation yet because we are still in transition and the glory of Leftism has not yet had a fair chance to prove itself.

      No, you would have to go to other nations where the Left has succeeded in running them according to their political agendas, to be able to tell us how that has worked without the crushing burden of the Bush Legacy, etc.

      • irisspirit November 16, 2012 / 1:21 pm

        Get a life. Yes, I gloat over those who thought they could buy the election. Got a problem with that, too bad. You are part of the problem not a part of the solution and it is people like you that will continue to take down the GOP. Deal with it miss know it all.

      • tiredoflibbs November 16, 2012 / 1:45 pm

        velma the mindless drone: “Got a problem with that, too bad. You are part of the problem not a part of the solution.”

        Hey velma, we tried your and your pResident’s solution for the last four years and IT FAILED. Now he is proposing MORE OF THE SAME!

        Welcome to the new normal! – Where unemployment is above 7.5% and debt is skyrocketing and failure is embraced!!!!

      • The Return of Rathaven November 16, 2012 / 7:06 pm

        We’ve got it figured out; boycott those companies that are laying off employees. We’ll cut into their greedy profits until they can’t afford to pay ANYONE !

        We need to keep driving those evil capitalists out of business until no one has a job.

        We’ll show them alright!

        /Liberal Logic is an oxymoron

    • tiredoflibbs November 16, 2012 / 1:42 pm

      velma: “Should have known this would your inane rant.”

      Uh, everything is true. It is not a rant it is FACT – something you are a stranger to.

      velma: ” Those who are starting these ridiculous actions of laying off employees will find that people will buy their pizza’s from small, local stores and eat at locally owned restaurants.”

      Uh, that is what capitalism is and the reality of gouging taxes and forced benefits from an all powerful federal government.

      velma: “Papa John’s pizza is crappy anyway. And he is giving away over 2 million pizzas this year. Maybe he needs to rethink that proposal.”

      Are you FORCED to buy his pizza? No. Are we forced to pay for vote buying schemes? Yes. Which question has the rule of law behind it with no choice in the matter at all? The beauty about capitalism is that he can fail on his poor choices. No one is forced to purchase his product. You can join the mindless boycott if you want.

      velma: “Greedy CEOs.”

      Ah, but the government looters are never greedy, right? Forcing, by rule of law, citizens (only certain ones mind you) to pay for their programs and finance their vote buying schemes is never greedy, right? If you had looked at the many polls since its passage, the American people did not want or like obamacare. Again, FACTS and you are complete strangers.

      “Further, Republicans are the poorest losers in the world. They believe they are entitled to the White House and always resent a Democratic President.”

      Ah, I see you put the Clinton/Bush transition out of your mind. And, the behavior and hatred towards Bush since his inauguration. You are such a mindless tool.

      “He believed he was entitled to the Presidency and that it could be bought by the rich and super pacs.”

      Oh, please. ObAMATEUR had his share of superpacs – lets see – unions, unions and more unions, wall street, hollywood, and other rich individuals. Don’t even try the “Republicans are the party of the rich” dumbed down talking point. If you believe that crap and that obAMATEUR is for the “ordinary man” or “ordinary uterus (that is what he reduced all women to)” then you truly are an imbecile.

      Wow, velma your rants are getting more and more passionate? no….. obsessed with those who have succeeded to a much higher level than a so called lawyer that looks at PO agreements and ITAR regs all day (a competent engineer does this all the time).

      You never did answer the question… How did you feel about obAMATEUR lower women from what is between her ears to what is below her waist as being more important? You do realize that women in government make LESS money than men… even in the obAMATEUR administration?

      You are so clueless, definitely not.

      Instead of ranting about small things velma, why not discuss what is important to the entire country…. the economy, jobs and its future.

      Pathetic little twit.

    • dbschmidt November 16, 2012 / 1:53 pm

      How about we first go back to the levels of spending under Clinton and then we can wait a couple of years to raise the tax rates to the Clinton levels. Or is this another bait & switch by the Dimmicrats?

      • tiredoflibbs November 16, 2012 / 5:11 pm

        A truly BALANCED approach would be that. IF they want Clinton tax levels then we should have Clinton spending levels as well. I mean, they love to regurgitate the dumbed down talking point about Clinton “surplus”. You would think that this would be acceptable. Sadly, the looting Democrats would never go for it. They see reducing spending as reducing their power.

        And, of course, obAMATEUR has only been talking about tax increases. He has yet to talk about the other half of the BALANCED equation – spending cuts.

    • dbschmidt November 16, 2012 / 2:27 pm

      Let us see on one little subject the progressives love to bastardize–gasoline/diesel refining where the EVIL corporations are MAKING RECORD PROFITS on the backs off all the little people. Why they are raking us over the coals to show a 4 to 6.5 cents per gallon profit? The government who has no skin in the game but will take record amounts of dollars in penalties, fines, fees plus if something goes wrong. Even if nothing goes wrong–the government takes it’s 49.5 / 54.6 cents per gallon “profit” before anything else is calculated.

      Really wondering who is the real thief here? Risk everything and get a couple of cents of return or risk nothing and take 50 cents of “profit” for the collective hive?

      The United States federal excise tax on gasoline is 18.4 cents per gallon (cpg) and 24.4 cents per gallon (cpg) for diesel fuel. On average, as of April 2012, state and local taxes add 31.1 cents to gasoline and 30.2 cents to diesel for a total US average fuel tax of 49.5 cents (cpg) per gallon for gas and 54.6 cents per gallon (cpg) for diesel.

      • tiredoflibbs November 16, 2012 / 5:15 pm

        Velma is always talking about “greedy” CEO’s. But as db pointed out, the government makes more in “profit” on a gallon of gas than does the company drilling, refining and distributing it. To her and her fellow dumbed down proggy drones, government is alway benevolent and never, ever “greedy”.

        This setup reminds of the mafia skimming off the top of every business under their “protection”.

        Again, FACTS and velma are strangers.

    On a related note; it’s pretty clear that Bozo is not sharing his wealth with his fellow Californians.

    The Golden State has fallen on hard times, with a poverty rate that is now twice as bad as West Virginia’s and substantially worse than the rates of poverty in Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas and Texas, according to a new measure of poverty developed by the federal Census Bureau.

    Democrat-run California earned its last-place rank under the federal government’s new measure of poverty, which incorporates more detailed analyses of welfare payments and the local costs of food, gasoline and housing.

    • dbschmidt November 16, 2012 / 1:40 pm

      Just as an addendum to Spook’s post;

      Neil Munro (Daily Caller) tells us
      The Golden State has fallen on hard times, with a poverty rate that is now twice as bad as West Virginia’s and substantially worse than the rates of poverty in Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas and Texas.

      The state’s costs are boosted by its environmental and workplace regulations, and by 38 million residents’ competition for housing close to the sea.

      William Teach (Priate’s Cove) adds in
      This is all despite the large number of lefties working in the entertainment and tech industries, making boodles of money and refusing to give back. A large number of 1%ers failing to help the 99%ers.

      The massive influx of illegal aliens sure doesn’t help. They’ve caused many southern California emergency rooms to shut down, and approximately one third of the California prison population is comprised of illegals. Then you add in the “progressive” nanny state policies and high taxes, the job killing uber-environmental policies, support of unions policies, and other workplace policies, and you end up with Brokeifornia having the worst poverty rate. Congratulations!

      Yes, indeed–Congratulations. Must be “special” like the 18,500+ ex-employees of Hostess. Really won that strike. Instead of an 8% pay cut ~ they got a 100% pay cut and here in NC / Rocky Mount–the unemployment rate was already over 45%. Good Job. Congratulations.

      Shocking! You mean to say that the same welfare check goes a lot further in Mobile than in San Diego?

      The Census Bureau just now noticed it’s expensive to live here in California. It’s worth it.

    Well creepy assclown, there is one little problem with the huffingtost article, it makes claims that were said that I did not originally present. The article I presented never said papa john’s was going to close stores. My referenced article clearly states it would affect business with increased cost and COULD affect some hourly employees.

    Details. Details are something you proggies don’t care about unless it is some means to lie without technically lying.

    Nice try.
