    CEO Keeps Promise to Lay Off Workers If Obama Elected
    Published: Friday, 9 Nov 2012

    Robert Murray, the chief executive of Ohio-based coal provider Murray Energy, began laying off a small number of employees this week after Republican challenger Mitt Romney lost his bid for the White House.

    The privately-held company, which had about 3,500 employees before the layoffs began, fired more than 150 employees at three locations this week. A spokesman, Gary Broadbent, said the layoffs were ongoing and these were just the latest announcements.

    The layoff notices blamed Obama’s “war on coal” for the job cuts.

    The layoffs have nothing to do with the election, and owner is lying about the cause, which is cheap natural gas.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Have any of you read this speech or understood the history?

    Military-Industrial Complex Speech, Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961



    Should we start wars so we can increase military spending and fuel the armaments industry? Are any of you really ready to join that club?

    Why are you so afraid of investing in American infrastructure or American people?
    1 Trillion on 2 wars across a decade, versus Obama's 6 trillion more in 4 years - and of course you blame Bush and the military for the debt.

    I didn't ask for that - did you even read my post? Obviously not. Where EXACTLY did I ask for specifically that?

    I never once doubted that Boeing planned the layoffs for two years. I even said that I knew about it.

    My ENTIRE point was that the Obama admin. asked Boeing to delay the date for the latest layoff until after the election. Even if it was for only one day.

    I asked for proof that they did not in fact do that...Sheesh.




    Please do not respond to my posts in the future if you are not going to bother to read them.


    Have a nice day.

    No, the lie was that he wasn't going to lay them off anyways if Romney won.

    In other words:

    Your last post directed towards me was wrong, but you have not got the maturity to admit it.

    Noted.


    Have a nice day.
