He warned the employees that this would be the case. He is the tip of the spear. “There is a tsunami coming.”

    Does anybody know the directions to Galt’s Gulch? I think we need to find an oil rig in international waters and go sovereign.

    What will the moochers lose? Obama will give them a phone, an apartment, wellfare called UE Comp, food stamps and “free” health care.

    Check out what Boeing announced today. Lockheed, General Dynamics, Northrup Grumman, Raytheon, General Automics, etc, will all follow suit. This is going to be fun to watch. And it’s the tip of the ice berg when the vendors start cutting loose.

    This is exactly what Obozo wants to happen-it’s the “way station” to “total” government control of healthcare. Obozocare was designed just for this result.

    Kroger announced last week that because of the Obamacare provisions they were going to cut hours so that they wouldn’t have to subject to the costs of Obamacare.

    Couple all of this kind of thing with what’s about to hit the economy and it spells DEPRESSION.

    “In a related item, John Boehner announced that he would support Harry Reid’s proposed ‘Anti-Dog Eat Dog’ legislation making it a felony to violate the principal of an honest week’s wages for an honest day’s work.”

    Of course, the Offical Press will never chalk up the forthcoming job cuts to economic realities. They’ll say it’s due to 1%-er vindictiveness and hatred of Dear Leader.

    Hopefully he went to the employee parking lot and picked out the idiots with obama/biden stickers on the bumpers and fired those assholes.

    Think of this as a “V” with the first layoffs at the base. When those businesses that are the first to layoff workers no longer need to buy more items from suppliers, the suppliers will layoff workers. Then those businesses that are supported by the suppliers will layoff workers because the suppliers are no longer spending the same amount of money as before. And it keeps growing larger. Trickle-up socialist economic depression.

    But here’s what I’m laughing at. Eventually, people will have to sacrifice and many will cut unnessary things like cable or satellite TV. As fewer people watch TV it means less people watching the evening news. Towards the end of this, you will see TV news departments laying off workers. So the election day giddiness of the libtard enemedia will end up being mental depression and frustration in the unemployment line. They voted against their own best interests and don’t even know it. Yet.

    Where would you put your life savings right now? I’m thinking land may be good. Possibly a vacation property, like lake frontage or similar. Any other real assets that will always have value? Still gold?

    @Mr. Gates & Norman einstein;

    If useable hard metal is your goal, forget gold. A handy cash-in chunk of gold (say $50) is about the size of an eyelash, and way to easy to lose. An ounce(@~$1700)is about quarter sized.

    Private land, under socalism, is taxed out of range if it isn’t used “for the people”.

    Silver is a good choice, it’s not too big to handle, still comes in coin sizes, and is easy to verify.

    Obama’s unconstrained EPA will declare your water front property a wetland, and require you, at your expense, to return it to its historical natural state, including the removal of any man made structures.

    Precious metals: Copper, lead and brass.

    Last weekend my ex told me that FedEx will be downsizing (in this ROARING economy?) but most people leaving would be “volunteers.” She got pissed when I started laughing at the “volunteer” part.

    Maybe America actually needs hyperinflation and debt default. It may be the only way to wake these economic dullards up and make them realize that folks need to be self-sufficient and not expect handouts.

    And a debt default would mean it would be insane to buy US Treasury bonds. This country would be forced to go Cold Turkey and live within its means.

    Are you guys kidding me? They will take everything, and a pocket full of your precious “silver or gold” won’t mean shit. Get yourselves a flint, a good buck knife, some sturdy boots, and a strong will to fight and survive cause you ain’t seen NOTHIN’ yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!
