Surprise: Obamacare-wary employers not hiring, cutting hours. “…instead of complying with the mandate and spending money they either (a) don’t have or (b) need for other purposes, cash-strapped small business owners are planning to shave hours and provide less work for their employees. That’s not greed; it’s business reality in a stagnant economy.” No, that’s just another form of raaaaacism!

ObamaCare will slow down the economy quicker than two seniors driving a Prius in the fast lane.

Elderly Asian women driving a “Smart” car?

I was once stuck behind an old Asian man, driving a motor home, pulling a horse trailer, on a windy two-lane road. Three strikes against him as a driver.

What a horror show this is becoming, massive tax increases, mandated bullshit, and a chickenshit government.
I’m going to just sit back and enjoy the riots when the freebies run out.

Not me, I hope to be an ACTIVE anti-riot participant.

Why dirty my hands or waste precious ammo? The animals will kill each other off, I just have to stay out of the way.

It turns from a spectator sport to a participation sport as soon as they cross the line that is the effective range of my Glock 17.

We have known this for at least three years. This is not a surprise. This is the price you pay for choosing the wrong government.

Here comes barrycare and the owners are going to be bashed about the head for being good business people. Something that der leader has no clue how to be.

Courtesy of Chief Justice Roberts and the 51% that just cant seem to pull their collective heads out of their asses and stop putting their hands out begging for crumbs from barry’s table.

There’s going to be lots of 49 or fewer employee companies on the horizon.
Most of them will be part timers too.

Maybe that’s the route Hobby Lobby should take.

They would have to make every store a franchise.

They have a huge online presence, too. I’ve bought quite a few RC plane parts from them. I’d hate to see their people all go un- or under-employed.

I like Hobby Lobby and I do believe they are trying to do right by their people while also staying true to who they are (the family that owns the company). This is what we are down to, do we keep it real or do we kiss the government’s ass and obey? If we don’t we get destroyed and bankrupt. Terrible.

Sad thing is, there’s no way any of us can buy enough of their products to keep them alive, once Obama decides to crush them. I wish I could, I’d have plenty of planes to play with, but it’s just not an option.
