...then there would have been a good chance that the U.S. Government would have considered either of them just as much a traitor, or spy, or criminal, or as whatever the government classifies them, as they do now. The 'this' to which I am referring is the seeming breach of National Security, what else could it be called, that was recently made by Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno. That seeming breach took place when he, probably acting as a political stooge of the Obama Administration, divulged to the whole world (including our enemy states and terrorists) that the U.S. Army has only two Army brigades that are combat-ready! He said it is a result of budget cuts that prevented the military from training more troops (source).
He has not been fired, evidently is not under investigation for treason, and apparently has not been admonished by Obama. Thus, my guess that he is nothing more than a political puppet of Obama is, as I see it, very likely correct. Can you imagine that, the Army Chief of Staff is playing political games with the security of our nation by divulging to the world that we are ill prepared to defend our nation. We are further gone than I had thought. Any real man of integrity, who truly believed the oath he swore to defend the Constitution and our country, would have never divulged such even on direct orders from his commander-in-chief. He should have told him "No Sir, I will not do it, it could damage our national security" and taken the consequences. At least that way he would have held true to his oath as an oath taker instead of to his political alliances as an ass kisser.
As Andy Puzder, the CEO of CKE Restaurants Inc., the parent company of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s, told Megyn Kelly on Fox News that his company and others will choose to hire part-time employees instead of full-time employees because of increased costs from the health care law (source). As he also stated, large companies have already been doing so over the past half year. The thing is though that it is not just corporate America that is doing so. Smaller business institutions, albeit those with more than 50 employees, have already started cutting back on employee's hours and that includes businesses that are run by fairly left leaning liberals and Obama supporters. You can bet other companies may have scaled back their number of employees to fall under 50.
I think a perfect example of such was the library in which, until just recently, I was employed. It had to be several months ago that my supervisor had me scheduled to work just over 30 hours in a one week period because the library was short handed on security staff. Well, I arrived at work for a 4 hour schedule and was told I had to clock out and leave 1.5 hours early. Why? Well, I was told because if I did not, I would be eligible for Omamacare. Even I knew that such was not the case and I told my boss just that. He basically shrugged me off and said that is what the director wanted.
I went online, showed him the government website showing the requirement under Obamacare that said: 'you had to work 30 hours or more per week for a period of three months to force an employer to give you Obamacare'. Going over the 30 hour plateau, for one day, in one week, did not qualify me to receive Obamacare. I showed my boss, he said he told the library director but that she was adamant that I had to leave work early. So, I had traveled to work at an expense of 2 gallons of gasoline (at the time quite higher in cost than now) and whatever other wear and tear on my car, to be told to go screw myself and go home early even though I had been previously scheduled to work those hours. Luckily that was the only day I was sent home but my schedule was corrected cut a couple to a few more times to assure I would work under 30 hours each week.
Now, picture if you will, the absolute Bizarro World aspects of this situation because the director of the library drives an electric car (or hybrid) with a fairly large sized sticker on the back of it, that sticker says: VOTE OBAMA. So, apparently, the director was all for Obama yet evidently is outright dead set against true support of his policies regarding Obamacare in that she had already begun to preclude at least some employees from being eligible for it. Now, I will point out, I like the lady (but maybe not her politics). She is a sharp cookie and a nice person - but what the heck is that all about regarding her so called support for Obama, then her lack of support for her employees getting health care under the health care plan implemented by the messiah of the leftists! It is, in its essence, the absolutely screwed up reasoning of the left, in my opinion, which really is the lack of any logical reasoning at all and a failure to accept the consequences of your vote. No wonder this country is akin to the swirling discharge water in a toilet bowl. We going round and round, still in there, but all full of crap and soon to be totally washed down the drain. We truly are doomed if thinking like that keeps electing morons who idolize tyrants, socialists and communists.
