> Obama Layoff. http://www.unionleader.com/article/20130115/NEWS02/130119473 Too bad there's not one iota of data in the original article to support your lie that this has anything to do with President Obama. In fact, it appears to be just another American corporation laying-off corporate staff.

> You are a socialist fool. And I value your opinion so highly! But at least I can back up my stated facts with citations and references whereas you're constantly attempting to mislead everyone with half-truths and references to completely-biased web sites.
