The Official "Own It" Thread

(1/156) > >>

My fellow Conservative Cavers, we have just recently witnessed an election that I believe was a chance to try and start to pull our Republic back from the steep cliff it is now bearing down upon.  An election that, unfortunately, showed us the "real conservatives" didn't give enough of a damn about their country to try and stop obinga and that the looters/moochers/DUmmies have probably finally overcome the producers.  The electorate has stated that they don't care about what is facing us, they want their "free" stuff and they want it now. 

What we know, and they refuse to understand, is that without the producers, there is no "free" stuff.  With Romney, they had an opportunity to keep some of their social programs; with obinga, they are going to find out how to do without their rainbows and ponies because nanny government is rapidly running out.  Elections have consequences, stupidity is incurable, and rendering yourself helpless is not conducive to surviving hardship - these are the lessons the "gimme" electorate are about to learn the hard way.

Now, we knew the reelection of obinga would result in immediate layoffs and stock selloffs but the DUmbasses are having a hard time making the correlation.  I am starting this thread as an official clearing house and one stop location to put the business layoff/closing/bankruptcy/exodus articles and assorted news (personal observations are always welcome) to keep it front and center so the mouth breathing, lortab snorting, dope smoking, cowardly, craven, infantile, and hopelessly economically retarded vermin of the DUmp can read it.  The only persons who inhabit The DUmpster more frequently than registered members are the DUmbasses themselves so they shouldn't miss it.  I ask that the moderators and admins please give this the honor of a "sticky" so it is right at the top of the page when they show up.

DUmmies, you wanted it, you got it, you now

That's what gave me the idea to make this thread.  In that article, they point to as their source.
