FML indeed......don't worry, it'll be even more solidified what these kind of policies do to an economy in 4 more years, if we still have one! It'll take much longer to forget this time around, hopefully

Nope, just figured the people would read into a failing administration more and vote for the alternative. I just dont agree with his handling of anything, and I think I have a unique perspective on this having served in the military with him as president and now being a middle class civilian.

I honestly didn't see this coming either. I should have known better though, our country just cares about what it can get at the moment than the long term effects. For the first time I am just disappointed in my country and have almost no doubt in my mind, this country will never the the power it was.

If things go the way I think it will, such as increased taxes, costs to insure employees and fuel costs. I will be downsizing my company in the next 2 years to just stay in business. Time will tell but the writing is on the wall.

You're definitely not alone, a lot of small businesses are feeling the heat from these crappy liberal economic policies. You guys are really the gauge as to whether things are working, and with unemployment STILL around 8% after four years, and the slowest economic recovery since the 1960's, that should scream alarm bells for everyone. Let me say it again: SLOWEST ECONOMIC RECOVERY SINCE THE 1960's! That means not only past republican, but even democratic presidents had faster growing economies in four years. If policies are correct, they don't take four years + to work, they can't blame Bush anymore (who btw had unemployment dropping over most of his presidency, despite his slightly more liberal economic policies).

I say good luck to you man, I hope you can press through the next four years without too much damage and survive for whenever a recovery actually comes.

Also, you'd think with all the things democrats are making into entitlements for people, they'd at least include free cake! Ain't nothin' wrong with cake....

Clearly, I think your cat has had more than it's share.
