It Begins… Business Owner Kills Himself After Obama Victory

Obama brings the pain…

(News One)

Barack Obama’s policies are so oppressive that at least one hard-working business owner killed himself after the election last Tuesday.
The Sun-Sentinel reported:

A Key West resident who police say was distraught over the presidential election results and worried about his business has apparently killed himself.

Police say they found Henry Hamilton’s body in his bedroom Nov. 8, along with a living will with handwritten words “Do not revive! (expletive) Obama!” Two empty prescription empty pill bottles were in the dining room.

Hamilton’s partner Michael Cossey told Key West police he last saw Hamilton when they watched the election results together. According to the police report, Hamilton was upset and said, “If Barack gets re-elected, I’m not going to be around.”

Cossey says Hamilton was anxious about his tanning business.

For the record… Democrats and Barack Obama placed an oppressive racist tanning tax in their health care bill to help pay for the plan.

    Key West…Tanning Business…Isn’t that Redundant?

    This is tragic. (God rest him, and give him peace.)

    So sorry that he felt that this was his only option. Unfortunately, I am afraid he will not be the last one to believe that suicide is the only way out.

    It sounds as if he was gay and Obama drove this man to kill himself… I guess Obama is guilty of assisted suicide.

    Can we prosecute the prick yet ?

  • Big Kahuna

    This should also be a hate crime

  • donh

    We have to be stronger than this. The Obama cult don’t give a damn if innocent people drop dead from their policies. Its actually their master plan…Why feed their revenge ?

  • If things go the way we think they are going to go, then it is going to get much, much worse in America. As troubles mount, and oppression spreads, and corruption trumps, there will be more and more who reach what they see as the end. We must share the gospel with all who are not believers, so that they know that no matter the circumstances in life there is hope… not of this world, but in Christ. My heart breaks that anyone feels there is no other choice, but to take their own life.

    Patriots! Never, ever turn your anger and despair inwards. We need you.

    Turn your rage towards the forces destroying our freedoms.

    Stand strong and stand together!

  • John Boehner

    This guy was mentally unstable anyway and would have killed himself regardless of who won the presidency. The writer of this article did a horrible job and it was blatantly biased, what you’d expect from the RW media.

  • Truth Teller

    Did you just say RW media, you fu(king retard?

    Not really the beaches are over run with deviants and out of control tourists. Depending on which ones you go to and the prevailing tides they usually are choked with seaweed and kelp this time of year as well.

    Maybe this is a sign that the Obama worshiping LGBT community will begin to feel the effect of his reign finally.

    I, too, am very sad this man was so despondent, and hope he now knows a peace this world couldn’t give him.

    Just a comment. NOT all gay people are commie’s. My neighbor’s gay but vote’s straight Republican.

  • Seriously?

    The poor soul. But nobody commits suicide over an election unless they have a host of other, more serious problems.

    CALLER: Well, I invited my conservative friends, and they all came. A legislator’s husband came. Just conservative friends, and we just talk about issues that are important to us. When I had my Constitution Party, I had the Constitution playing, the audio playing in the background, and we just talk about politics and religion and it’s just an awesome time.

    RUSH: My goodness. My goodness. See, folks, in pockets out there, stuff is happening. And, you know, she’s happy to talk about it. It’s not like she’s doing this behind closed doors hoping nobody noticed. Anyway, that’s fabulous. Lynn, congratulations. We’re honored here to hear from you. Thank you so much. By the way, you haven’t been sworn in yet, right?

    You must read it all here. It was wonderful to listen too this conversation and I wish that Henry Hamilton had a group like these wonderful people who believe in this nation and it doesn’t matter if Obama was re-elected because conservatives will come back stronger.

    R.I.P. Mr. Hamilton.

    Oh, my God. I watched excerpts of Obama’s farce today. I have to say that he has gotten worse. I thought, check that, I hoped I was wrong and he would lighten up on the rhetoric.

    No such luck.

    Now, assassinated Oil Tycoon.

    Personally, I’m hoping the Mayans were right.

  • #28 Oliver… LOL, you know, that would solve a lot of problems 😉

  • Honestly…

    Homosexual drama queens killing themselves is nowhere near being a rarity. His issues extended way WAY beyond a failed election preference.

    Get over it.

    Re #17 conservative dude’s comment…hope that wasn’t directed at my OT link to the communist denier. Sorry I didn’t make it clear that it WAS OT, and had nothing to do with my first statement about the man who unfortunately killed himself.

  • Dave

    I’m sure I’m missing something obvious here, but anyone care to explain how a tanning tax is racist? In a world where anything harmful is getting the crap taxed out of it – smoking, sodas, maybe salt soon, if Bloomberg gets his way – and you insist this is a racist tax? Don’t you think if race were a motivating factor, Obama would want tanning to be much cheaper and more widely available so that more white people would get skin cancer?

  • Truth Teller

    #32…the overwhelming majority of tanners are white people, thus the tanning tax is racist as it impacts primarily whites. Do we really need to explain this to you?

    It’s like putting a tax on collard greens.

  • Winston Wolfe

    I only wish more conservatives would follow his lead!

    Nope. I’ll take out people like you looooong before I off myself.

  • Dave

    No, see, the tanning tax isn’t racist, but saying “tax on collard greens” is racist, because it assumes that only dark skinned people eat collards. I’m a pale irish man, and I love collards. But the tanning tax isn’t racist, because black people DO go to tanning salons too, and so you’re foolish for thinking it’s targeting white people. The tax is there, like I pointed out, because everyone loves tanning stuff that’s bad for you.

    Guys, honestly, why do you make it so easy for people to want to disagree with you? When you say ignorant and racist things, it turns people off. I have no doubt that many of you have intelligent and true things to tell us, but when you throw in your little casually racist statements, you steal your own thunder away, and you don’t win anyone over.

  • SoLongSong

    You offend me when you refer to me as “guys”.

  • Dave

    Well, you’re in luck, because at no point did I say “solongsong, you guys are funny.” Also, way to have a substantive response.

    You know, I was wondering if suicide rates have increased under this marxist, Muslim infiltrator. I know the rates of suicide and state sponsored murder, aka ROE, in the military have increased since this guy has been in the White House. I pray every day, that something happens to him. I don’t care what, just something.

    #35 Dave,
    Keep telling yourself nice things. Who are we going to believe, you or are lying eyes?

    Typical comment from the likes of those like you. Full of hate and anger.

    You need to repent.

    Yes totally agree with you!

    Suicide is never never never the answer! Christ is the answer!

    For those that think dying takes you automatically to a better place…without asking Jesus to save your soul…will be like going from the frying pan into the fire!

    To go to Heaven you MUST ASK JESUS TO SAVE YOUR SOUL…then God will give you the hope…peace…that you need…

    Don’t kill yourself. Fight back. There are still Liberals out there stealing your money. You still have work to do. Fight them. And if you think you have nothing to lose, you can fight in ways the rest of us can’t.

    I only have one thing to say to someone who would kill themselves over an election disappointment … Buh-bye.

  • JP

    Would his business even be affected by the law? I mean a tanning salon in south Florida? Sounds like he needed an excuse to end it and thought this was the only justifiable way. My heart goes out to his family though.

  • shadow

    Nearly a thousand ballots that were not included in Florida’s final count have been found in a warehouse in Broward County.

    Seeing how Obama won Broward 67% to 32%, losing ballots there was probably a plus for Ronmey.

    Have you ever been to the Southern parts of the US? White people eat collards too.

  • Liberty


    You are right. Jesus is the answer. Don’t leave this life without him!

    Apparently some psychological issues here. No sane person does this. If you dig a little deeper there will probably be a personal or financial reason behind this. Tragic.
