Yeap, Romney’s lost…pack yer shit…we’re going home lads

Or not:  WH begs defense contractors not to issue layoff notices…

So sayth the Drudge.  Here’s the money quote:

The guidance said that if plant closings or mass layoffs occur under sequestration, then “employee compensation costs for [Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification] WARN act liability as determined by a court” would be paid for covered by the contracting federal agency.

If there were any words that would send corporate attorneys running for the hills, screaming in the night it’s those.  Basically what it says (read Obongo reelection committee) that you don’t need send out layoff notices (as required BY LAW) and you don’t need to worry about getting sued because we’ll cover your back and eat the costs for you…trust us.  Because, really, we er, don’t really want 1.2 million layoff notices going out five days before our Messiah is due to be re-coronated (yeah it’s misspelled, fuck off).

Friends I’ve talked to in the contracting world have told me that the notices are going out regardless because: a) Sequestration cannot be stopped nor can the 450 billion cuts already approved on top of that.  It’s going to happen, period.  Harry Reid will make sure it happens out of spite if he loses the Senate so he can try to blame Republicans the drooling, senile prick.  b)  Even with a Romney Administration and Republication Congress the soonest anything could get done would be the last week of January, if then, maybe, call me.  c) If Obongo gets reelected (God save our souls) he’ll just screw them anyway and they know it because there won’t be anyone or anything to stop him.  He hates free market companies and he despises the military, and in particular, defense contractors.

Yeah…winning…now pull the other finger asshole…

    School Cafeteria Employee: ‘Seconds’ Banned, Extra Food Thrown Away Under Obama Rules

    MONTANA – The new school year is only a few weeks old, but it’s already becoming clear that the federal government’s new school lunch guidelines are about as popular as the NFL’s replacement referees.

    After published a recent article about how the Obama administration’s new calorie limitations for school lunches are leaving many American students hungry (especially high school athletes), a concerned food service worker from a western Montana school district contacted us with news about how the guidelines are impacting her students.

    She only agreed to an interview on the condition of anonymity.

    According to our source, the new federal guidelines require vegetables to comprise the largest portion of a student’s lunch, while the entrée is now being treated as a side dish. That means a lot more of the stuff most kids don’t eat and just a tiny portion of the palatable item.

    “It’s completely flip-flopped in terms of portion size,” our source says. “I’m appalled at the serving sizes we’re required to give high school students.”

    Even though some kids may be leaving the lunch room hungry, the new Obama-imposed rules prohibit students from receiving additional helpings, even when there’s food left over.

    “We’re told we cannot serve seconds, that we cannot save leftover food for the next day. We must throw it away,” our source says. “What a waste for hungry kids who aren’t getting enough to eat to begin with.”

    She feels especially bad for high school athletes who rapidly burn through calories.

    Read This While You Can
    Cindy Simpson

    Read this column by Diana West while you can — while we still have journalists brave enough to write the truth, and before the truth is censored. West, a syndicated columnist and author, noted an astonishing statement within Obama’s speech to the UN General Assembly, and dissected and explored its meaning and terrifying implications.

    West’s column, “The Anti-Blasphemy, Anti-First-Amendment President,” highlighted this extraordinary Obama sentence:

    “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

    West noted:

    No Big Media outlet reported this stunning pronouncement. It’s as if Ronald Reagan addressed the National Association of Evangelicals in 1983 and the media failed to report that he used the phrase “evil empire.” To make the comparison more direct, imagine if a Republican president declared that “the future must not belong to those who slander the messiah of Christianity” – or, for that matter, the prophet of Latter-day Saints. We would have heard all about it, and for the rest of our lives.

    The meaning of “slander” under Islamic law is explained by West to encompass “anything Muslims perceive to reflect badly on Islam and its prophet, including the truth. ” (Emphasis mine.) Such a definition, as West noted, would include any criticism of “Muhammad and, by natural extension, Muhammad’s totalitarian religious/legal system of governance.”

    In acknowledging the qualifying sentences Obama wrapped around that extraordinary statement, West explained:

    But, but, but … the president also said the future “must not belong” to those who “target Coptic Christians in Egypt”… and “bully women.”

    First of all, “target” and “bully” are wan verbs to describe the terror, bloodletting and systemic abuse that Christian populations and women suffer at the hands of Islam. More important, though, the violence inherent to religious cleansing and female oppression is in no way comparable to the most critical words or pictures on a page or screen. Such an equivalence is immoral. The president should be ashamed.

    Read West’s insightful column in its entirety. Her conclusion is chilling: “I can’t think of another instance in which an American president has publicly uttered such a rank betrayal of American principles. And the media censored it!”

    The mainstream “old media” may be censoring the truth — but for now, anyway, we still have New Media. And we have word-of-mouth. Go tell it on the mountain.

    Trust on Issues:
    Obama v. Romney
    Rasmussen Reports, by Staff

    Original Article

    Posted By:Photoonist, 9/28/2012 4:25:33 PM

    Mitt Romney continues to hold a seven-point lead in voter trust over President Obama when it comes to the economy, by far the number one voting issue. The candidates remain more closely divided in several other key issue areas, but voters are shifting toward Romney when it comes to national security. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters trust Romney more when it comes to handling the economy. Forty-four percent (44%) trust the president more. (Snip) This survey of 1,000 Likely Voters nationwide was conducted on September 25-26, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports.

    He hates free market companies and he despises the military, and in particular, defense contractors.

    Trust me in the Defense contracting community – the feelings are almost entirely mutual.

    What’s particularly galling about this is – when we’re dealing with double digit unemployment the people in DC will cut the legs out from under the Defense Industry – those 1.2 million jobs at risk, ain’t minimum wage jobs either.

    The average non degree vet like me that enters the field will command a salary of around 35-40+K a year fresh out of the military. That’s entry level.

    The press has been obviously silent on this point except for a smattering of articles and what not that make passing mention and utterly gloss over the impact that this is going to have.

    This is a case of the double whammies – Not only are 1.2 million jobs on the chopping black, again not menial labor jobs – good jobs, the other shoe to fall from this is that as vets return from the wars, their tour of duties finish – enlistments and officer commissions wind down there is a natural progression of sorts. They head straight to the nearest Defense Contractors and start pumping out resumes.

    Case in point when I left the military in 1995 – I spent the best 160 dollars of my life – I had a retired Navy Captain review my records and write me a resume – I partied like it was 1999 all that weekend and Monday popped a bunch of aspirins, drove to the UE office filed a claim and had a job councilor look at my resume for about 15 seconds. At which point he handed me a slip of paper with a phone number – spun to his fax machine sent my resume off to points unknown and said “call that number – I think they have something for you”. I started with Raytheon within a month or so.

    I’d wager a guess that fully 70 % of those people that will be leaving the military will do exactly that same thing, they will seek work in the Defense Contracting industry – as an aside, a college degree doesn’t always count for much in this field – it’s what the military has taught you to do that makes you a prime candidate for companies such as Raytheon, Lockheed, General Dynamics and others. Especially on weapons systems.

    Back on point – the second shoe? With 1.2 million jobs lost – and cut backs to defense budgets there is going to be a severe shortage of available positions for those vets. The entire industry will hunker down – stagnate and try to weather out the storms but during that time hiring and advancement are going to be dead in the water for the most part.

    So my next question is: when can we start bitching about Obama destroying 1.2 million jobs ? Mheh

    Y’all need to see this: Democratic pollster says American media have become “the Enemy of the People of the United States”.

    This video is equal parts terrifying and infuriating. And it’s got nothing to do with having to look at Caddell. Zing!

    I know, I know: old news, right?

    Not really — Caddell calls out people by NAME and by NETWORK, savages the New York Slimes, and is so enraged and upset that he trips over his own words: he says he’s very frightened for America’s very survival as a free nation.

    He rages at the corruption in the media, the corruptton in Washington, at the Vicious Party and the Stupid Party who WON’T FIGHT BACK. He says if the Republicans don’t find their balls and start calling the media out on their lies and bullshit, they WILL LOSE, not only this race, which should have been Romney’s by a mile, but also our COUNTRY.

    Why does it matter? Well, Caddell has been inside Washington for decades. He knows these people personally. And he’s both enraged and scared that the “journalists” have sold their souls, openly shilling for Oh-Baaa-Maaa. And he has a list of their treasonous derelictions of duty.

    He ends by saying, with great force, that the “journalists” were the only part of our Republic that did NOT have checks and balances, but that was because they were supposed to be free to torment Everyone, in the interests of informing the Citizens of WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON HERE. Now, they’ve abdicated that duty, and they’re also deciding that THEY will decide who gets to be President; THEY will decide what we are ALLOWED to know; and THEY will hold the levers of power from now on.

    Check it out: it’s worth a listen.

    Aid to every nation other than Israel should be terminated. Cold turkey so to speak. Any counry not having some direct security impact on US interests should not have an embassy. All immigration to be halted until further notice and we will actively encourage muslims to leave the USA. Any muslim adherent found to be preaching or acting out against the constitution will be deported with loss of all return priviledges, their children go too, no matter if born in USA.

    Southern border to be sealed first, then we address the illegal migrant issue. As to the northern border, increased scrutiny for now.

    T’was the night before elections,
    And all thru’ the town,
    Tempers were flaring
    Emotions ran up and down.

    I, in my bathrobe
    With a cat in my lap,
    Had shut off the TV,
    tired of political crap.

    When all of a sudden,
    There arose such a noise,
    I peered out my window,
    Saw Obama and his boys

    They had come for my wallet,
    They wanted my pay
    To hand out to others
    Who had not worked a day!

    He snatched up my money,
    And quick as a wink,
    Jumped back on his bandwagon
    As I gagged from the stink.

    He then rallied his henchmen
    Who were pulling his cart.
    I could tell they were out
    To tear my country apart!

    ‘On Fannie, on Freddie,
    On Biden and Ayers!
    On Acorn, on Pelosi’
    He screamed at the pairs!

    They took off for his cause,
    And as they flew out of sight,
    I heard him laugh at a nation
    Who wouldn’t stand up and fight!

Also, defense…they will say we outspend the world 6 to 1. However, while the Chinese only spend a 100 Billion, their soldiers, planes, ships, tanks are all much cheaper than ours to produce and sustain. Romney must go big picture and show the clear choice. He must take the offense and not be gentlemanly like McCain. The best defense is a good offense. When a question is asked how his faith disparages Blacks, he should turn it around and rail against black unemployment, loss of income, etc. On Foreign policy, he should draw the comparison looming that Egypt is in great danger of becoming another Iran…He should attack Obama for the corruption and partisanship, in addition to the damage he has done to the economy. He should bring up Obama’s boast that if he did not fix the economy in three years he should not be reelected. Put him early on the defense…Finally, he should frame the debate as a choice between a strong, free, capitalistic society and a statist, dependent population, with all its Greek consequences. There is so much to attack but you can bet the MSM moderators will carry the water. Why did we not press for one debate moderated by a conservative (Brett Hume/Charles Krauthammer) and one debate moderated by the usual liberal suspects is beyond me. If the Admin had refused it would have brought home to the American people how afraid of real choice the Obama and leftists are. Let us pray the Romney realizes there is much at stake and this will be one of the best chances to get our message out.
