I'm a VP at a company that makes digital camera parts. I don't know much about that part of it, which is why I oversee HR, PR and security.

We've been planning a massive expansion into Maryland. We'd be moving about 50 employees' families there and hiring roughly 75 more.

But because Obama won, we're disbanding the company, loading guns and plan on running through the streets murdering as many people as possible. We're then going to build a bonfire and roast the bodies and eat them. I'm going to go after children and puppies exclusively. "Operation Obama Caused This" begins in 26 minutes.

Perhaps there is no better thread than this to mention a recent relevant incident.

As I went to buy milk yesterday, a woman approached me in the dairy aisle and just started ranting at me. "The whole world's coming to an end! It's all crashing down around us!", she wailed. "It's the end of the world. The end of the world!".

I was just trying to find the MOO milk, and then I found it, and turned to her and held up the carton, and smiled and said, "MOO milk!". (It's that really good local organic milk.) And she just stopped her depressive rambling rant cold and said, "Oh yeah, that's hard to find."

I knew she meant Obama. I just walked away.

There's a prominent Farker on this site that discussed how his boss was struggling and wasn't going to be able to invest in his company or donate equipment to a school because of Obama's dreadful policies. Some lawyer came in the thread and pointed out that everything the boss "wasn't" doing was actually tax deductible and had no connection to tax raises one way or the other.

Then, everyone pointed and laughed at him when he confused taxable income with gross profits.

To our kids and all you farkers: I hope you all are able to keep your jobs and live well while your tax dollars make life comfortable for my wife and me. I really hope that you are all able to find and keep high paying jobs and that the economy holds out, as that allows me and the wife to pull our social security and the medicare for decades to come.

Terry Gilliam: You're right there Obediah.

Eric Idle: Who'd a thought thirty years ago we'd all be sittin' here drinking Chateau de Chassilier wine?

MP: Aye. In them days, we'd a' been glad to have the price of a cup o' tea.

GC: A cup ' COLD tea.

EI: Without milk or sugar.

TG: OR tea!

MP: In a filthy, cracked cup.

EI: We never used to have a cup. We used to have to drink out of a rolled up newspaper.

GC: The best WE could manage was to suck on a piece of damp cloth.

TG: But you know, we were happy in those days, though we were poor.

MP: Aye. BECAUSE we were poor. My old Dad used to say to me, "Money doesn't buy you happiness."

EI: 'E was right. I was happier then and I had NOTHIN'. We used to live in this tiiiny old house, with greaaaaat big holes in the roof.

GC: House? You were lucky to have a HOUSE! We used to live in one room, all hundred and twenty-six of us, no furniture. Half the floor was missing; we were all huddled together in one corner for fear of FALLING!

TG: You were lucky to have a ROOM! *We* used to have to live in a corridor!

MP: Ohhhh we used to DREAM of livin' in a corridor! Woulda' been a palace to us. We used to live in an old water tank on a rubbish tip. We got woken up every morning by having a load of rotting fish dumped all over us! House!? Hmph.

EI: Well when I say "house" it was only a hole in the ground covered by a piece of tarpolin, but it was a house to US.

GC: We were evicted from *our* hole in the ground; we had to go and live in a lake!

TG: You were lucky to have a LAKE! There were a hundred and sixty of us living in a small shoebox in the middle of the road.

MP: Cardboard box?

TG: Aye.

MP: You were lucky. We lived for three months in a brown paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six o'clock in the morning, clean the bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down mill for fourteen hours a day week in-week out. When we got home, out Dad would thrash us to sleep with his belt!

GC: Luxury. We used to have to get out of the lake at three o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of hot gravel, go to work at the mill every day for tuppence a month, come home, and Dad would beat us around the head and neck with a broken bottle, if we were LUCKY!

TG: Well we had it tough. We used to have to get up out of the shoebox at twelve o'clock at night, and LICK the road clean with our tongues. We had half a handful of freezing cold gravel, worked twenty-four hours a day at the mill for fourpence every six years, and when we got home, our Dad would slice us in two with a bread knife.

EI: Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, (pause for laughter), eat a lump of cold poison, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad would kill us, and dance about on our graves singing "Hallelujah."

Well the guy made his point. With the new stuff coming in, his business will have to pay for more things and as a result, he won't be able to handle it with the amount of people he has employed. If he didn't fire those people, the entire company will be affected and everything will go to hell, everyone of them will suffer. He had to make this sad choice of firing those people for the sake of everyone else.

I don't think this is a simple childish move that goes along the lines of "Wah my presidential choice lost, so now I make some people suffer just because I don't like losing waaaah!". It was made after analyzing what would happen if a certain candidate won and he found out that with Obama's plans, his business won't be able to survive the way it is now. He had to fire some people for the business to continue.

I don't think the story deserves the Asinine tag, it deserves the SAD tag because business owners will have to face the reality of extra payments to be done which will definitely affect everything.

I had almost 42 employees, not including myself, my wife and our four children who helped out with the day to day operation. Once Obama was elected, I ended up having to pay taxes on our earnings, and when I realized how much free money I was just handing away (MY HARD EARNED CASH), I decided it was better to shut down and let my employees go.

It was the best decision of my life and I would do it again if I had the chance.

Phins: You're either a liar or an idiot. Health insurance is part of your compensation. Why don't you also agree to have your salary cut or work for less than the going rate, since you're so altruistic towards your company? Or maybe work for a company that isn't so close to the edge that a couple thousand dollars is the difference between staying open or closing?

No, libs want universal care. The "Affordable Care Act" is a bridge. If there was ever an industry that exists solely to leech while producing absolutely nothing, it's the health insurance industry. But people who don't understand how the entire first world outside of America works will rant and rave about "Socialism!!" whenever universal health care is brought up.

This text is now purple: bunner: Profedius: Sure it is great to help the poor, but let us help them to no longer be poor instead of just barely keeping them alive.

I agree. And how exactly do we do that when anybody with any capital investments demands more money than last year, every year, for less expenses, pays almost no taxes and thinks that having a 60' Hattaras is way more important than the jobs they just eradicated to buy it?

You don't. You just watch more filthy rich people shove more money up their ass ends, and pay less taxes and buy more toys while they sack the people who bring the money in the door.

Endless growth is a myth and if you insist on eating the whole pizza, my family actually DOES get the box for supper. And so far, that hasn't worked out.

Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime. Put a 40' high barbed wire fence around the fishing hole and it doesn't much make a difference.

17 employed people with access to health care is better than 20 employed without heathcare.

Tell that to the 20.

You suck at teh maths.

In what way?

17 of them have jobs regardless. Only three people are getting screwed, not 20.

So if you're one of those three, that's fine?


Well, those 3 might be out of a job, but at least they can can take consolation in the knowledge that they can subtract a two-digit number from another two-digit number successfully.

Our small business got a refund on our health care because of Obamacare. Are you really a small business? And please, I am not intending to be a snark, I am truely curious. I think the term small business needs to be more clearly defined. I know that our costs will increase next year as we will need to offer health care to our 2 employees, only one is currently on the health plan. On the flip side, obamacare has allowed for both my husband and I to be insured at any cost. We both have pre-existing conditions he diabetes, myself MS. Since the implementation of the healthcare plan the cost of our coverage went from not available @ any price to $2500 for us both to 1500 for 3 persons (employee) to 900 for the same 3 persons. Without Obama care my husband would have eventually gone into renal failure & our business would go bankrupt, as it is kinda hard to work when you are slowly being poisoned by your own wastes or if you are lucky, on dialysis for up to 8 hours / day 3 - 4 days / week. Without income he could not support me & my health care needs and our society (the tax payers) would be burdened with two more disabled individuals rendered utterly reliant on welfare. Two individuals who could have supported themselves & contributed to the overall economic health of our nation, if only they were provided access to reasonably priced quality health care. It's not about getting something for free at least not for us. For us it is the privilege of being able to buy ...



That was a much more thoughtful response than he deserved. Thank you for sharing. GOD bless.

Here's the problem, if he isn't making the same amount of money off of the labor of those 22 that he is on the other 92, then he's been doing it wrong. If he can fire them without impacting his bottom line, he's been doing it wrong. If losing that percentage of his workforce doesn't reduce his company's income, he's been doing it wrong.

/those three sentences are pretty much synonymous, but I wanted to drill the point home

if this is even real, he probably hires those jerks who hand out porn flyers on the strip.


Oh, yeah, probably. Not like 22 fewer of those would make a dent, but 114 might. Now I really hope that his entire business fails.

I guess I could understand if you were working for your buddy's business that he launched 8 months ago. But what other possible reason could you have for being so illogically altruistic?

It's not altruistic. It saves the company money, and it saves me money (at least until 2014). I'm a healthy guy.

I can't facepalm enough for this post... Someone misses the whole point of "insurance."


Chances of myself or anyone else in particular needing insurance are low. That's how it works. The healthy players subsidize the costs of the few that need it. I haven't missed the point, you just don't seem to understand how or why it works. You also entirely missed the point of the post, which is that it was my choice (agree or disagree with it) to participate in the market or not. In 2014 that choice is effectively taken away and becomes "participate or pay a fine" which is simply outrageous.

Maybe all the face-palming is causing some damage, go easy.

Every time the government gets involved in an enterprise, the cost of goods or services associated with that enterprise escalate. Watch and see.

edmo: Right to work state?

What does that have to do with anything?


Right to work = employer can fire an employee for any reason as long as that reason is not related to any of a number of protected classes

Examples:

a) firing an employee specifically for being handicapped, gay, straight, black, white, etc is illegal

b) firing an employee for being late, wearing brown shoes, whining, or because someone got elected is not illegal

If these firings actually happened (which is highly suspect) then they ostensibly fell under b).
