The news just keeps on getting better, huh, DUmmies?  At this rate, we'll have 20+ million more stimulating the economy with unemployment and food stamps.

Maybe if these layoffs occurred before the election some of the loons who still have a couple of functioning brain cells would have voted against the continuing destruction of the country.

Not a single one of the loons on DU would have changed their vote, nor would any of the moochers sucking the government teat.

It'd be nice for them to have one friggin' brain cell in the common sense area going off, but then again, we are talking about the DUmp...where they pledge alliegence to the Dependent States of America, with Obamafo' and food stamps for all.

Hostess Closing Bakeries as Workers Won’t Cross Lines

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-11-12/hostess-closing-bakeries-as-workers-won-t-cross-lines.html


Hostess Brands Inc., the maker of Wonder bread and Twinkies, began permanently closing plants after it couldn’t get enough members of its striking bakery workers’ union to cross the picket lines to keep them open.
“Very few” Hostess workers from the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union are crossing the picket line in a strike begun Nov. 9, said Ray Scannell, the union’s research and education director.
Hostess announced today that bakeries in Seattle, St. Louis and Cincinnati will be closed as a result of the strike.
“Sadly this action will result in the permanent closure of three facilities and the loss of 627 jobs,” Hostess Chief Executive Officer Gregory Rayburn, said in a statement.

Quote
Marshawn Hogans

I find this funny that once you cut into entitlements it is always doom and gloom. When Americans REALLY suffer i.e Sandy, they are considered resilient and can bounce back. Average Americans went through some kind of loss through the recession and have bounced back in some kind of way. Are you saying $50.00 dollars will kill people? I believe it will change their spending habits yes. Sometimes that is needed.

The problem is this. There is no proof that entitlement spending corrects poverty. It only increases it. It causes dependency among low income families. It is worse under Obama's Administration by removing the "will to work" policies that Clinton instilled in the welfare program during his administration.

The very fact that Democrats would be willing to increase taxes during an unsettled economy is beyond my belief and studies of economics. The fact is this. If we increase taxes, this will not help the situation. Democrats always find new ways to spend it instead of hitting the root cause for it. You can blame Republicans for being greedy all you want but the real problem is spending.

I say give the Democrats what they want to prove a point. True conservatives will know what to do with their money once this happens. We can make money from the move. Once the troops that they rallied begin to fall a part and see that choosing a Prom King was not such a good idea, then they will be willing to listen to conservative solutions. I love my country and would not want to see people fall. But sometimes you have to offer tough love like we do our children and let them experience failure at its best.

NBCU cuts will total 500 jobs by year-end

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118062142


A sporadic series of job cuts NBCUniversal has been making since August will amount to 500 positions, or 1.5% of the workforce, by year's end.
A source at the conglom confirmed the number circulating in published reports but characterized the eliminations as "nips and cuts" aimed at reducing inefficiencies across many different divisions, as opposed to the broader layoffs that rocked NBCUniversal in the years before its acquisition by Comcast.

The bulk of the cuts have already been completed, but there are still more to come, though NBC Entertainment's creative execs are expected to emerge unscathed. The unit is on the upswing this fall as new primetime series including "The Voice" and "Revolution" are reversing the ratings doldrums that have plagued the broadcaster in past years.

The latenight division of NBCEntertainment, however, was the first to feel the brunt of the cuts. The initial wave hit "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" in August, with 20 staffers laid off. Leno himself took a massive salary reduction of as much as 50% of his wages to keep more of his employees from being let go.

Oh, before I forget, ABC news has a really good article about the coming "Taxmageddon" shit sandwich that all of us are going to be taking a bite of.  I'm going to survive because I am not dependent upon government and I have done my best to prepare.  How about you, DUmmies?  You ready to suffer for your king?

Wall Street bracing for capital gains tax hikes
By Maureen Farrell @CNNMoneyInvest November 13, 2012: 2:53 PM ET

 Starting Jan. 1, when Bush-era tax cuts are set to expire, tax rates on long-term capital gains will jump to 20% from their current 15%, and 23.8% for those in the top income bracket. Taxes on profits from stock dividends, currently at 15%, will surge to 39.6% overall and 43.4% for top earners.

The Bush tax cuts account for nearly half of the fiscal cliff, which includes $7 trillion worth of tax increases and spending cuts. Lawmakers have been unable to reach a consensus on how to keep the nation from going over the cliff. And time is running out.

"There's so much uncertainty on the table going into year-end with regard to the tax code and the fiscal cliff, that it could cause a spike in volatility," said Kristen Scarpa, investment strategist at Barclays Capital.
http://money.cnn.com/2012/11/13/investing/capital-gains-taxes-stocks/index.html?iid=Lead

In case you didn't understand that, I'll try and translate:  Raising the tax rate will stimulate people to not spend their money.  It is proven over and over again, but you dipshits just don't get it.  Well, here it comes, DUmmies, time for you to learn the hard way.

You wanted it, you got it, you now
