These are good jobs. The people will need two part time jobs and still will be short of what they made at IBM. Meanwhile, with one full time job lost and two part time jobs replacing them, the lib loons will be boasting that obama created more jobs.

Research Triangle Park, N.C. — A "resource action," or layoffs, are underway at IBM (NYSE: IBM) under the name "Project Chrome," workers are telling the Alliance@IBM Union.
"Bloodbath today," wrote an IBMer in Columbia, Mo. "Me? Yes, RA'd."
“At a time when IBM is aggressively transforming, the company continues to rebalance its workforce to meet the changing requirements of its clients and to lead in new, high value segments of the IT industry, including cloud, analytics, mobile, security, social and cognitive computing. This is not new news," IBM said in a statement. "IBM announced a $600 million workforce rebalancing charge in 4Q, 2014.” ...

When small and medium-sized businesses are dying faster than they’re being born, so is free enterprise,” writes Jim Clifton, Chairman and CEO of Gallup. “And when free enterprise dies, America dies with it.”
For six years, the number of small businesses closing has exceeded the number of businesses starting. The number of business deaths exceeded births in 2008 for the first time in US history and has gotten worse in the ensuing years. Since 2010, the rate of small business closures has increased.
In the 1980s, the number of new businesses exceeded those closing by more than 100,000 every year. Today, 70,000 more businesses die than are started each year. This somber fact goes a long way to explaining the current weak job market. Two-thirds of all new jobs are created by small businesses.

obamacare program costs $50,000 in taxpayer money for every American who gets health insurance, says bombshell budget report
Stunning figure comes from a Congressional Budget Office report that revised cost estimates for the next 10 years
Government will spend $1.993 TRILLION over a decade and take in $643 BILLION in new taxes, penalties and fees related to obamacare
The $1.35 trillion net cost will result in 'between 24 million and 27 million' fewer Americans being uninsured – a $50,000 price tag per person at best
The law will still leave 'between 29 million and 31 million' nonelderly Americans without medical insurance
Numbers assume obamacare insurance exchange enrollment will double between now and 2025
Keep in mind that these are high tech wipers and you can expect problems. Besides that, what do you want for $85,000?
I'm sure he has many friends in the American Bar Association who would be willing to take the case. Come on, Hairy, it's easy money and your friends could use it to make donations to the democrat party.
obama will travel to Saudi Arabia for King Abdullah's funeral (by skipping Taj Mahal visit). Is anyone surprised?
The money saved on oil will help pay for the increase in insurance premiums, deductibles, our of pocket expenses, co-pays, etc. And then, when gas prices go back to $4 to $5 dollars per gallon and the economy tanks, the rising oil prices will be blamed and not the rising health care expenditures.
Why would Twitter, Google and Y*hoo need your personal information? Of course, if you are a lib loon, you would believe these companies are insurance companies. One of them is on record saying so., ya know.
N.Y. Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (DEMOCRAT) accused of $4 million bribery and kickback scheme, Dems continue to support him
Silver, who has been one of the most powerful lawmakers in Albany for more than two decades, surrendered to authorities Thursday morning. A five-count federal complaint accuses him of accepting millions from firms seeking his influence in Albany.
Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver declared his innocence Thursday after facing bombshell federal corruption charges of soliciting $4 million in dirty money over the last 15 years.
“I am confident that after a full hearing and due process, I will be vindicated of these charges,” a relaxed Silver announced after his release on $200,000 bond following a Manhattan Federal Court hearing.
Silver, spied earlier taking an uncomfortable ride to the courthouse alongside an FBI agent, made his brief appearance after U.S. Attorney Preet Bhahara blasted him as the epitome of a corrupt politician.
EDITORIAL: Speaker Silver has been laid bare as a polite extortionist
“For many years, New Yorkers have asked the question, ‘How could Speaker Silver, one of the most powerful men in New York, earn millions of dollars in outside income without deeply compromising his ability to honestly serve his constituents?’” said Bharara.
“Today we provide the answer: He didn’t.”
Will obama be there or will he just send the ambassador? The king has been gouging Americans for years. I'm sure our Hussein would like to show his appreciation.
These are the kinds of lib loons that hang around this board. LOL
