    Reading that was a wast of time. Same old BS, spouted by the same old cons. When a reputable site like the Guardian says mass layoffs then i'll take notice.

    So the private sector is gonna hold us hostage because they didn't get their way?


    Sounds like a bunch of crybabies....I have a better idea, quit making excuses! Stop blaming taxes and unions and regulations and man up! Stop blaming the left for your problems, stop blaming the people because they want to be treated fairly and paid a fair wage with fair bennies. So they can feed their families and keep the lights on.

    So much wealth is this world, yet it seems like its wasted....

    Layoff people while at the same time making millions.....this isn't about Obama or taxes, this is and always will be about GREED!

    Same goes for you & I ILHP....we both go to work everyday and do the best we can because we want more. I know I've never said to myself, "Hey, I'm making enough, let someone else have get more".

    I think I'd be an idiot if I thought that, don't you?

    The greed argument has been around for 5 thousand years.

    The bottom line is people are in business to make money nothing else.It will never change.
    The whole problem with liberals argument is that its not connected to any reality.
    If laying off is going to help their bottom line because of government regulation, restraints and overburdening draconian tax hikes like Obamacare then they will.
    I don't know how your side can be so clueless to that fact.

    And even with layoffs they are going to raise the cost of doing business with consumers to offset these new forced government expenditures.
    I've been telling you this for months. Socialist government eventually ends up hurting the people they are supposed to be helping the most and the wealth gap grows larger.

    When is your side ever, ever going to realize that?

    You are relying tweets, but that feeds the hysteria/half truth beast.

    If this was going to be so devastating, why didn't they do it a month ago when I may have made a difference for the right???

    Why wait, if true, for a couple of days after the election.

    there were enough warnings by business that this would be the case if Obama were reelected...you guys called those threats political.

    The above companies layoffs coming AFTER the election is because they were hoping not to cut anybodies job.

    Where you guys think that business that have to compete 24 hours a day for market share and profits are supposed to be charity organizations is dilusional.

    Now this is just an example layoffs coming...Wait about 6 months that see actual buisnesses go extinct.

    Can certainly count on some for hysteria.. these are tweets, nothing official.

    One anonymous person's opinion that he or she made in 140 letters or less...

    Consumer sentiment at 5-year high, inventories jump - Yahoo! News

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Americans' perceptions of the outlook for the economy and for employment improved in early November with consumer sentiment rising to its highest level in more than five years, a survey released on Friday showed.

    It was the fourth month in a row consumers' moods have improved.

    Separate data showed wholesale inventories rose in September by the most in nine months as wholesalers sharply boosted stocks of farm goods and oil, the latest sign the economy grew more than initially estimated in the third quarter.

    When things go wrong in the Muslim World this is what they do, they pray to their God.

    Dear Lord:

    The American people have made their choice. They have decided that America must change its course, away from the principals of our Founders. And, away from the idea of individual freedom and individual responsibility. Away from capitalism, economic responsibility, and personal acceptance.

    We are a Country in favor of redistribution, national weakness and reduced standard of living and lower and lower levels of personal freedom.

    My regret, Lord, is that our young people, including those in my own family, never will know what America was like or might have been. They will pay the price in their reduced standard of living and, most especially, reduced freedom.

    The takers outvoted the producers. In response to this, I have turned to my Bible and in II Peter, Chapter 1, verses 4-9 it says, “To faith we are to add goodness; to goodness, knowledge; to knowledge, self control; to self control, perseverance; to perseverance, godliness; to godliness, kindness; to brotherly kindness, love.”

    Lord, please forgive me and anyone with me in Murray Energy Corp. for the decisions that we are now forced to make to preserve the very existence of any of the enterprises that you have helped us build. We ask for your guidance in this drastic time with the drastic decisions that will be made to have any hope of our survival as an American business enterprise.
    Amen.

    I didn't read them, so I don't even know what they say.

    It's just that you seem so intent on discrediting sources.......why do you care so much? whose opinions are you working so hard to protect?

    No I don't....

    If I ever made over 250k or 500k or 1 million a year, I was say that I make to much and let someone else get a pay raise or a promotion.

    Hell if I made 100k a year I was say I make to much, give some to the other workers....

    Money doesn't have power over me, same with power and greed....I know what's important in life and money is just a false sense of security. As long as I have a roof over my head and food in my belly you'll never hear me complain.

    I work because I love to work, I don't do it for the money, I would rather be on a farm rasing my own crops and cattle, living off the land. I work because I like to help people and I love my coworkers. I could make more else where but I don't covet money so it doesn't make it into my thought process, other things matter more to me....area....people.....family....

    Ever heard of more money more problems?

    Just because you can't fathom not coveting money, doesn't mean the rest of of us can't....Money is just paper....dirt.....nothing more......nothing less......

    What real value is, is in the eye of the beholder, I value family and friends not paper...I value time not paper......I value honesty and courage not paper.....

    Money only changes you if you let it.....:cool:

    so basically, you've never had money, so you don't know and are just throwing idealistic babble up in the air.......that's fine.

    money means different things at different times......do you have children? probably not

    I've never cared about money beyond prudent saving practices for particular needs......buying a house, saving for kids college, marriage....saving for retirement.

    In my life I've also had the experience of running a business, having employees to worry about. hiring people and having to lay people off. through those, the notion of money becomes even more important.

    when you only give a ***** about yourself, money doesn't have to be important....have fun

    I do well for myself. Firmly entrenched in the middle-class. I really don't have to think about money. We aren't big spenders, we save quite a bit of cash each month.

    What was the point of this post? Oh, some of us do not need gobs of money to have a high quality of life. I'm very happy right now and I do not see more money changing that level of happiness. Sure, sometimes I think that having more money would be nice, but I like working, it makes life interesting.
