You may recall last summer when the talk of huge cuts in defense, and hence defense contractors, was the buzz of the politicos, all due to the budget sequestration that Congress voted on, and Obama insisted on, as a consequence of extending the debt limit last year. As summer turned to fall, DOD contractors began to talk about sending out layoff notices to their employees, as the Dept. of Labor’s WARN Act requires them to do.
Facing an upcoming election in November 2012, President Obama didn’t want the defense contractors and their families to be notified, as the law required them to do, that they would soon be out of a job as a result of the sequestration agreement. Putting politics ahead of American workers, the lawless President told the defense contractors not to issue layoff notices. During the presidential debates, he said, sequestration isn’t going to happen. Having succumbed to Presidential blackmail, and believing what the President said, no notices were sent. He suffered no political damage, and was re-elected.
We are three weeks away from the cuts going into effect and President Obama is doing nothing to stop it. Ostensibly, the cuts go into effect March 1, 2013.
There’s been a lot of talk lately about a voting block that President Obama caught. They’re called low-information voters and are not race-specific, ethnic-specific, or income-specific. If you were like me, scratching my head over how in the world this community organizer could be re-elected in such a dire economic and jobless environment, this video should clear it up. You have the racial aspect, and what became known as the Santa Claus effect.
Don’t know who this person is. But if this is satire, it’s really good.
Gun Dealers Have Problems With Credit Card Processors
Nick McMillan, a gun dealer in Tennessee, recently received an email from Intuit Payment solutions informing him the company was no longer interested in processing his credit card sales. Well isn’t that special? Intuit also sells TurboTax and Quickbooks.
In the email the company wrote “Intuit does not support the services you are providing” and then the reason stated was firearms, ammunition, gun parts and accessories sales not sold in a face-to-face environment with the credit card being swiped.
As you might expect, the KOSites are estatic over it.
Tawana Brawley served with court order to pay man she accused of rape in 1987
Infamous hoaxster Tawana Brawley — whose outrageous rape lie 25 years ago inflamed racial tensions nationwide — yesterday was finally slapped with a court order to settle a hefty defamation case against her. It also made Al Sharpton famously famous. Johnny Cochran paid off Sharpton’s bills on the case. Wonder if the good Reverend will step up and pay Tawana’s bill?
Belly up to the counter. Politics are on the menu and Ross is on the grill.
