As corporations and small businesses from every corner of society lay off workers or simply shut down in response to the effects of a stagnant economy and the implementation of ObamaCare, things will only get worse. Yes - the American people have spoken, and they are going to get what they wanted (or at least what 51% of them wanted).
This is only the beginning.
A person opens a business to do one thing: MAKE A PROFIT. Why else would you take the risk? Where does it say that an employer has to provide you with all these perks? If the company is to survive, it has to make all necessary cuts to keep it profitable. Obviously the union members don't understand this concept. If you don't like it, open your OWN business and just see how much it costs to run. I can almost guarantee you most of these individuals have never operated a business or taken a business class in their life. All they know is what the unions tell them: Company profit, Bad! What a bunch of ding-dongs.
Business - not government - is the engine which runs our economy. All things good (or bad) spring from the strength or weakness of business in this country. Those who rail against the success of business or corporate profits are arguing against their own success.
We should all take a good look at the rest of the world. Take a good look at the "Arab Spring," at the communist/former-communist countries, and all the rest. Truth be told, they all are working toward economies that are like OURS (or at least the way our economy USED to be).
In 2012, we are witnessing the implosion of everything that made this country great. And this implosion is being enabled and facilitated by a 51% who voted for the decline.
Just like children, some people have to learn everything the hard way. But sometimes the harm done in the process is unrepairable. We'll all see (and feel) where things wind up this time.
Here are a couple of articles with connections to Obama care and workers.
Good links, golfy. Here's another, which begs the question:
ARE TWINKIES TOO BIG TO FAIL?
My kids went to 2 supermarkets looking to stock up on Twinkies and they were gone. Poor kids. They asked me to look online and see if I can find some...lol. I'll give it a shot.
