Las Vegas Business Owner Fires 22 Employees After Obama Wins

A Las Vegas business owner fired 22 employees after Barack Obama won reelection on Tuesday.
CBS Las Vegas reported:

LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas) — A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today, apparently as a direct result of President Obama’s re-election.

“David” (he asked to remain anonymous for obvious reasons) told Host Kevin Wall on 100.5 KXNT that “elections have consequences” and that “at the end of the day, I need to survive.”

Here’s an excerpt from the interview. Click the audio tab below to hear even more from this compelling conversation:

…“Well unfortunately, and most of my employees are Hispanic — I’m not gonna go into what kind of company I have, but I have mostly Hispanic employees — well unfortunately we know what happened and I can’t wait around anymore, I have to be proactive. I had to lay off 22 people today to make sure that my business is gonna thrive and I’m gonna be around for years to come. I have to build up that nest egg now for the taxes and regulations that are coming my way. Elections do have consequences, but so do choices. A choice you make every day has consequences and you know what, I’ve always put my employees first, but unfortunately today I have to put me and my family first, and you watch what’s gonna happen. I’m just one guy with 114 employees — well was 114 employees — watch what happens in the next six months. The Dow alone lost 314 points today. There’s a tsunami coming and if you didn’t think this election had consequences, just wait.”

Elections have consequences.

    Live in an older house needing TLC. We’ve now scrapped our landscaping plans down to a bare bones plan. Kitchen renovation will be scrapped in favor of on-the-cheap DIY plan. Refinished floors? Nope. We’ll DIY a coat of poly. The lawn man? We’ll be letting him go and taking over that job ourselves. It is a one-family microcosm of what I expect will be happening amongst all the producers.

    He may be the first, but he isn’t the last by a very long shot. Expect more jobs to go part-time too.

    Hispanics voted for Obama overwhelmingly. Mostly out of greed and ignorance.

    Lie down with dogs, don’t bitch about waking up with fleas.

    This will not be the last time it happens.

    I hope every stupid SOB who voted for Obama loses his job and/or welfare benefits.

    Here is my take on what happened. I did a three part set.

    This is part one.
    Some say Hurricane Sandy gave Obama a chance to look presidential. Well, maybe, but there were so many other obvious problems for anyone bothering to look a one day tour shouldn’t have done it.

    No, Obama won because Obama understands America. Romney lost because he understands what America should be. It may be that simple. For years we’ve been slipping and slipping and slipping. I’ll argue had Obama shown up in 2004, or an Obama like figure actually, GWB would have lost. The only reason he won was Kerry was just an unlikeable white guy. So the choice was between two unlikable white stiffs and GWB was the incumbent- and perhaps more genuine .

    President Barack Obama sees America as a salad bowl, where multiculturalists are free to pick and choose identities and cultures instead of sharing a unifying one — the classical melting pot concept. And Obama’s successful 2012 campaign — as sophisticated as it was when it came to micro-targeting voters — reflected his broader view.

    Instead of running a campaign based on his record or a unifying and forward-looking vision for the next four years, Obama essentially ran multiple, micro-targeted campaigns aimed at specific racial groups, scaring them into believing Republicans would take away their rights and promising them legislation on pet issues in a second term. He used the same template with women voters. He essentially united his coalition by disuniting America, one racial and gender group at a time.

    And incredibly — with the help of Obama’s “Moneyball”-esque date crunchers and geeks — it worked devastatingly well on Election Day. Obama’s progressive coalition, in what was a base election, turned out in droves, surprising Republican pollsters who had built their models on turnout levels similar to 2004’s.

    I hope every one of the 22 was an Obama voter. In this house we are taking care of our own and that is it.
    If the country wants Obamaism, they’ve got it. Personal isolation at its finest with none of the guilt.

  • Truth Teller

    Everyone…please use your remaining power to do anything and everything to show these 59M mental midgets what happens when you vote a failure back into office.

    Elections have consequences: Even liberals are going to pay the price for subprime acorn government.

    And when things get tough, their whining is going to be the loudest.

  • Hera

    Glad they were mostly Hispanic since this is a group that voted for Obama. Elections have consequences and like the Obama voter I’ve decided to look out for myself first. I have immediately cut back on spending and of course most tips are gone. The 47% already got their tip when the voted for Obama to pick my pocket.

  • Practical Jane

    Well, if they’ve got to go they’ve got to go. Best the Obots go first.

    Jim, Boeing will be laying off 10 thousand Jan 1st due to the military cuts…

    I love it when Obama voters get laid off……My Father runs an auto auction center, we laid off 4 people yesterday not according to seniority but because they voted for Obie…Yes elections do have consequences. To bad that we thought the Romney backers had more sense than the Obie backers. Just tried to keep our heads above water since Cash for Clunkers killed us, cars were traded in to dealers and destroyed, no matter the mileage, what a waste….

    What can one do when working hard and improving your standard of living takes a back seat to welfare and poverty? We have let the wrong people in the classrooms so now we have indoctrination centers and not learning centers.

  • Julie

    I guess all those hispanics who voted for Obama on Tuesday and now lost their job can wait at the unemployment line to welfare line…it was a choice they made and now they must live with it for the next 4 years…maybe forever…who knows.

    #12 Hera:
    Don’t punish the hard working – those that work for tips work harder than most of us – and they are not all Obots. We know several waiters/bartenders/waitresses and none of them voted for Obama.

  • Sasja

    That cash for clunkers was a clunker. So many good cars destroyed when they could have been sold and most likely sold to those who could not afford a new car, but yet needed something a little better than they already had.
