The Obama doomsday that was.....
I had a good job at a business in Tampa that was over 100 years old. We had 750 very wonderful people working there. From almost every nation on the planet. I could sit in the lunchroom and hear people from Africa talking in a language that sounded very strange to my ears. I could look in all directions and see diversity in the extreme. Black, white, hispanic, asian..... all the bases were covered.
Our boss payed over 4 million dollars a month in taxes....but to the democrats that wasnt enough.... they wanted something more on the line of 40 million. My company spent a couple years trying to come up with a number that pleased everyone and kept those jobs where they had been for the last 100 years.... in Tampa.
In 2009 they gave up...closed shop and moved out of the country. The most wonderful job I ever had and all of those people from all over the world that I had grown to care about went byebye. The 4 million dollars in taxes a month ( which my company would have agreed to a number closer to 8 million) became ZERO dollars a month.
The democrats destroyed families. I started calling them to ask them to come and reassure us that everything was going to be ok....but no one was ever there to talk to me. So I started calling businesses and asking if they could help.
I ended up getting over 100 people jobs. CNN came to my home, the Tampa Tribune and the St.Pete Times came to my home. WFLA had me on one of their syndicated shows to talk to me....... yet none of the people who created this mess had even 5 minutes for me.
The whole state knew our last day was July 27th..... and after that we were all jobless. On July 28th... I got my first call from the democrats that created this tragedy, "Mr.Russell what can we do to help?"
All I could reply with was...... You did not call me the day after they closed the doors after I have been trying for 2 months to talk to you... to ask me what you can do to help...... I followed this up with some very angry words and said goodbye.
I will never support any democrat ever.... because when "we" needed a little support from them...they wouldn't even take 5 minutes to help calm 750 people scared to death about the future.
I have no use for the democrat party, they have shown me personally what they stand for..... and it has nothing to do with the well being of the citizens

Stop it. Race relations never left the 60s. All politicians did was sweep all the racial tension under the rug with legislation. There has never been a open honest discussion about race; and the atrocities committed against minorities. And now, 40 years after the civil rights, all we have are a bunch of covert racists walking around here putting on a mask of equality, while still retaining the same racial contempt for minorities.

What, you think minorities can't see through the masks? Bwhaha.

The same sorts of things were said of Bush43.

They are already being said about Trump .

Wait, Democrats tried to multiply business taxes by a factor of 10???

Sorry but I have a hard time believing that. If that were the case then we'd be in a recession right now.

Your story says you gave up in 2009 after trying to make things work for a couple years, so you tried to make things work in the 2006-2008 range, couldn't do it, and closed in mid 2009?

Guess what, Obama wasn't President in 2006-2008.

You are a sick little monkey arent ya.... Never left the 60s.... is that so. Let me try real hard to see if things today are different from when I was little.
When I was a kid..... to see a mixed couple...well I cant remember ever seeing any..... but today I dont even pay attention to it....
When I was a kid I never saw mixed race students...... by the time I graduated it was already yesterdays news.
When I was young...I learned it was ok for George Jefferson to shout WHITE ASS HONKEY!!!,,,,,, but Archie Bunker couldnt say Dumb ass 'n-word'...... and that felt wrong to me even as a kid.

To claim nothing has changed since the 60s,,is just plain ignorant. I dont see any whites only signs. I dont see anybody sitting in the back of the bus..... You are a hate breeder, nothing more.

Your life experiences do not negate mine. I went to school with thousands of black kids and was only one of about 100 white ones. If you think I do not know or did not live in discrimination.... you are sadly mistaken. I know what its like very well.
I also had the misfortune of going to 9th grade in Houston. My first day of school I got on the bus, introduced myself politely to the bus driver and she immediately turned to the other kids and said,,,,, Look kids we got a yankee on the bus..... which led to a fight the minute I got off. I got a problem wrong on a test and the teacher walked right up to me and said..Do yo know why you got that problem wrong,,, cause your a yankee. There was a sign on the freeway from a car dealer... We finance everyone, even yankees........ and when my grandmother drove down to get me out of that god forsaken place..... she got pulled over in Texarkana and the cop came up to her window and the first words out of his mouth was Are ya'll going home?? ....and when she told him she just came down to pick up her grandson and take him back to Michigan... he smiled and said..Well then get on your way.

Um yeah, the reason that he wasn't able to do those things is the same reason that Trump just got elected. And that's because the people voted and got in a republican Congress and Senate two years into his presidency. That's the same thing we just did with Trump to stop what Clinton had planned.

Just because somebody failed doesn't automatically mean they didn't try.

The U.S. Congress prevented a lot from happening. Very important to note that fact.

If I told my boss I tried, it wouldn't take long and I would be fired.

The POTUS doesn't make excuses he makes a legacy. Name 1 positive thing that Obama did that didn't have huge costs.

I've watched whole communites crumble under the economic policies of the past eight years


I'm calling the BS flag on that one. The only communities I've heard of crumbling are small farming towns and that's because young people are moving to the cities to escape fundamentalist hellholes. It has nothing to do with Obama.


The big cities are worse off since 2009.

Compartmentalization causes heavy psychological problems.

Guess what, Obama wasn't President in 2006-2008.

Your reading comprehension skills are lacking...must be a democrat. Can you quote me where I said I was trying for 2 years to make things work?? Do you actually believe that the employees were given a 2 year notice about what was going on???..... We were told in May of 2009 that July 27th was our last day...... and that is when I started doing what I did.

1. I said my company had been talking to democrats.... not to Obama. Dont put words in my mouth please.
2. It was an election year and Obama did support and endorse those who were behind this fiasco when he came to campaign.... and they supported him.... he towed the party line
3. The democrats all take their orders from the party leaders..not with ideas and plans thought up by themselves. My anger and strife is not projected at an individual...it is at a political party whose ideas and actions have proven themselves to run counter to what is beneficial to me and the people I call countrymen.

So I suggest you go and reread my posting...slower this time so that it has a chance to digest, for the words to have a chance to form meaning..... You lack of reading skills almost made my replying seem like a waste of time... but I did anyways

I did read it, perhaps rather than it being a problem with my comprehension it's an issue with your ability to communicate?

Here's what you wrote:

Gave up in 2009, spent a couple years trying to make things work. That means you were trying to make things work prior to 2009, which means prior to when Obama was in office.

We payed 5 cents per product we made in tax..... before it was sold..... the state was demanding $1.10 I believe it was the company went as far as to be willing to pay 25cents....... and that is where the negotiations stopped and the company decided the best option was to leave

Haha, you think because it is not in plain sight that it is completely gone? You think because we had a black president that racial contempt, and hatred is gone? You think because there isn't a sign that says 'whites only' that the expression isn't implied in many cases?

What la-la land do you live in? I see what you see yes. But I still know there are many layers that have been hidden in THIS day and age, despite the illusion of progress. Go on your triggered rants all you want but the truth remains. The government DID sweep up racial tensions, and they put legislation in place to stop the grievances of minorities.

Then they put forth plans to destabilize many black organizations, even having a hand in the assassination in AA's two greatest leaders. Two leaders, that if they had united, would have brought the USA to their knees at the UN. That's the real reason why they signed that Civil rights bill. Half of the white power structure did not care to fix the problem, but when they heard that one of the most charismatic leaders of the black community had made plans to take the US to the UN for Crimes against humanity, they got rid of him, and the others, and any OTHER leaders with even a percentage of potential, and put these bills in place.


Had it not been for the sudden increase technological advances which allowed one to travel and communicate more effectively, America would still be lynching, beating and killing AA's and other minorities. Because America is all about telling someone how dirty their backyard is, while hiding their backyard which is the dirtiest of them all.

The government gave minorities a cookie, and then destroyed their leaders; to keep them in a controlled state. And all those people from the 60s? The ones with their racialist views? They passed them right down to their children, and their children, and so on.


I don't live in La-la land and do not dare say I am filled with hatred. I am a realist. I see what is. I refuse to turn a blind eye to reality. You can though. That's your right as an American citizen.

Your trying it again.... you are taking the words Company..... and then swapping it for the word YOU.

I will type more slowly so your liberal leaning mind can have a chance to understand things.

Prior to the closing of the company I worked for in July of 2009...... The higher ups had been in talks with the government about increasing the per unit tax. This has nothing to do with me, a machinist whose job it was to keep the machines running. Please stop insisting that I have said or implied anything about spending years doing something. I never said or implied that anything I did transpired over the course of years.
As an employee we had no idea of anything until May when the talks were over and a company meeting was called to let us know what had happened...... I personally had about 2 months to do what I could do.

You're missing the point. Your company was dealing with this stuff in prior years. It wasn't Obama that put you out of business.

You are under the impression that people hate each other over the color of their skin..... Skin color has nothing to do with it....We all hate people poorer than we are...no matter what color they are. I dont want to live in Detroit with "those" people..... The people in Bloomfield Hills dont want me around because i am one of those "those" people..... and the people in St.Claire Shores dont want anything to do with the people from Bloomfield...... and those sitting in their mansions pulling the strings....... they think all of us are human excrement

Color went by the wayside ...... its all about how much money you have.... The "haves" hate the "have nots" no matter what color skin they have...... and us have nots have a lot more important things worrying us then what color someones skin is

Did I say Obama..or democrat.... this is the third time I have asked the same question. Obama is a democrat and that makes him a POS in my book anyways....I wont deny that I am implying that.....

I think you may be a little dyslexic because I type the word company.... and you see the word You.... I type the word democrat and you see the word obama...... its a new dysfunction called Selective Dyslexia

I see now. You said your company, that implies you owned it. What you meant is your employer. However, your employer spent years trying to find a way to make a tax increase work, years before Obama ever took power. Early in Obama's term they gave up (likely due more to the banking collapse than taxes, given the timing) and moved out of the country.

You also mentioned a 10 fold increase in taxes, are you sure you actually know what the tax increase was? That seems like information the company isn't going to share with a random machinist. At some points you say 10 fold, but you also give the example of 5 cents to 110 cents. That's a 22 fold increase.
