Nov Layoffs - Part 1
1 year ago
| POLITICAL

We are only halfway through the month, less than a week from Thanksgiving and 6 weeks from Christmas, a time when the holiday hiring flourishes and causes unemployment numbers to decline due to part time holiday jobs.  Any yet more and more layoffs are being reported instead of us hearing about hiring.

 

Obama told us that all of us middle income folks are "doing fine."  Do you call this fine?  By date, current layoffs of some of the companies in the USA:

Yeah Obama, we're doing just fine under your "superior leadership."  You've actually managed to surpass Jimmy Carter as the WORST PRESIDENT in the history of the United States of America!  For all the people who voted for Obama, some of us did homework and learned what kind of person Obama is.  We tried to tell you.  You mocked us, harassed us and gloated when he won again.  FYI Obama supporters, this is YOUR FAULT!  YOU caused this and have no one but yourself to blame!

It's the Democraps who supported Obama, the ones who were not for either Romney or Obama, and along with that poison the fact of all of the fraud and crooks in this election voting more than once or voting dead people, animals and etc; again that lied in order to get Obama re-elected again who are to blame!!! If there is any way this man can be kicked out and found to have committed treason..which we all know he has...I hope God guides us to that point and inspires those who were not awake in this past election to turn around and see the evil they have perpetuated enough to fight back and try and rectify their huge mistake!! We will never survive with this liar in chief in the White House another 4 years!!
