    Today was the last day for 2/3 of the 200 employees where I work. The company I work for is closing the downhole tool manufacturing plant here because of "the global economic slowdown and tough times in the energy industry" brought about by the anti-American Energy producer policies of the Obama Regime.

    I hope they're prepared to weather a long period of unemployment. Jobs are NOT plentiful in Obama's America.

    He wants us all to learn how to rely on umemployment insurance, food stamps and other government gimmies to support ourselves and our families. In return for these "generous" freebies, he expects us all to bow down at his feet and worship him--with our votes.

    Just say NO. NO to Barry Soetoro. NO to layoffs. NO worship. NO bowing down.

    Meat once or twice a month (bologna only) is no way to live---but that's standard fare in today's USA. Thanks to our Kin....uh....President.

    You are an idiot. Don't lay the fruit of Republican policies at Obama's feet.

    I feel your pain. The engineering department, where I work, went from 18 to 10. Hours for those in manufacturing were reduced to 16 hours "A WEEK". Everyone on salary had their salaries cut, but not their hours.

    But things have improved. Hours have been restored to 40 for manufacturing and the pay cuts have been rescinded. But there is still a lot of tension. The economy could still worsen.

    I'm so thankful we have Obama as president. Imagine if John McCain had been allowed to continue the disastrous Republican policies that put us in this hole?

    Such a very sad feeling this thread had left me with. The focus of this administration has been on free everything and higher taxes, than on the economy and jobs. My deepest empathy for all of those who have lost their souls, to one who wants to own them.
