There are currently 35+ petitions that have been filed with the White House, with various states petitioning to secede from the U.S. of America. One of my co-workers mentioned it to me earlier this afternoon, and another co-worker (who voted for Obama) responded with “good riddance!”. Wow. Angry much? Your man won. Why are you so freakin’ mad all the time?
Are you already having buyer’s remorse? Within 48 hours of the election, more than 40 corporations announced layoffs. Small business owners are closing their doors. Companies are cutting employees, or reducing their employees from full time to part time, to avoid providing health insurance. The stock market is still down around 500 points since Tuesday. Ohio food stamp recipients (869,000 households) just found out that their benefits are being cut, to the tune of $520 million a year. We found out the administration kept information about the massive increase in food stamp recipients during July-August under wraps. They also kept the news of General Patraeus under wraps until after the election, along with the debacle in Benghazi. The list goes on. There has been nothing but negative news regarding our economy and foreign policy issues.
But it’s not like you didn’t know this was coming. You were warned. We screamed it from the rooftops. Employers even told their employees they would be laying people off if Obama was re-elected. Did you really think it would get better? Did you really think it was going to magically change when he was re-elected?
All I can say is don’t complain to me about your healthcare costs rising and your friends/family losing their jobs. You asked for it, and you got it.…now deal with the consequences.
