"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Massive Post-Election Layoffs; Will Continue


Own it!


I suppose this is a part of that slow but steady growth that Yahoo and other Left-leaning news sites have been trumpeting.

Do you think that this might have a small effect on the unemployment rate? Maybe.

A partial list from The Blaze (h/t Jacobson at Legal Insurrection):

  • The Target store at Manassas Mall Va.
  • Millennium Academy in Wake Forest NC
  • Target Closing Kissimmee FL Location
  • The Andover Gift Shop in Andover MA

  • Gomer’s Fried Chicken in South Kansas City
  • Kmart in Homer Glen
  • Fresh Market on Pine Street in Burlington
  • AGC Glass North America to permanently close its Blue Ridge Plant in Kingsport Tenn.
  • The Target store at Platte and Academy in Colorado Springs

  • Bost Harley-Davidson at 46th Avenue North and Delaware Ave. in West Nashville TN
  • Townsend Booksellers in Oakland
  • The Kmart store in Parkway Plaza off University Drive in Durham NC – 79 Jobs Lost

    Darden Restaurants - The company, which was among those who had received an Obamacare waiver in the past, is looking to limit workers to 28 hours per week. A full time employee that is required to have health insurance (lest the employer pay a fine) works 30 hours per week, as defined by the Obamacare law.

    You can't blame Bush this time buddy. Own it Obama. And to every single one of you who voted for that man.

    But you know, on second thought I now realize that it's not Obama's fault. I mean it's greed. If these terrible executives just simply stopped lighting their cigars with $20 bills and drinking their cocktails seasoned with the tears of minority children, they wouldn't have layoff so many hard working people. Greed. That's the ticket.

    And let's not forget the "unexpected" multi-day retreat in Wall Street.

    But please, let's talk more about how we have this "Brown country" now, as Leftists love to assign colors to races. Let's talk about how Romney wasn't electable. Let's fiddle while it all burns...
