    Rush Limbaugh had an interesting theory today. He said some employees are laying off employees before Obama takes over, so they possibly will not be subject to the "new union voting rules" that would be forced on businesses.

    Also, they realize that costs, such as taxes, mandatory insurance and ect may increase.

    I was wondering if someone would pass along Rush Limbaugh's talking points. :)

    I am glad I stopped paying attention to Rush Limbaugh over a year and half ago and now might listen to him for a couple of minutes just before I arrive home for lunch. A couple of minutes a day are about all I stand of his right-wing rants anymore.

    Because I am interested in truth is why I find Rush Limbaugh's right-wing rants to be repugnant.

    They say after the 533K jobs lost last month this is the highest unemployment since 1974... You know, the Ford years that Carter had to rescue us from.

    LeBuick,

    Before long I won't be surprised if the right-wingers start blaming President-elect Obama for the Depression of 1807, the Depression of 1837, the Depression of 1873, the Depression of 1893, and the Depression of 1929-1939. :laugh:
