Breaking news: You're all fired!

Not sure barry wanted this to leak out yet but we're all screwed. Seems that 500 million of us are losing our jobs every month. In that the US population is approximately 306 million right now...


Damn! And just when I thought it couldn't get any worse...

The Obama administration is expected to impose a cap of $500,000 for top executives at companies that receive large amounts of bailout money, according to people familiar with the plan.
“That is pretty draconian — $500,000 is not a lot of money, particularly if there is no bonus,” said James F. Reda, founder and managing director of James F. Reda & Associates, a compensation consulting firm.

Sorry to hear that you are slow, we were slow to the point of almost nothing for 2 months then it got real busy for 2 & 1/2 week and then back to sort of slow. Not sure how much more we will be able to take. Hurts Hurts.

Anything Uncle Sam has a financial stake in, is susceptible to this, along with what you can manufacture, and how much profit a company can make.

BP is dead on right...

I don't think I have the heart to get use to it as BP said even though he seems to be dead on right, it seem that any thing the gov. has anything to do with it cost twice as much to oversee it as it cost to do it. Is it not a wonderful world.

If Obama can set salary caps in a free market then he might as well set pricing on goods and services as well. Smaller companies that don't need bailouts can't possibly compete when they have to actually pay what the CEO's are worth and sell goods for what they cost to produce and still expect to make a profit.

If you like the IRS, DMV and the Post Office, you will love Obamacare!
