3. I seriously doubt that anyone who had 22 people that had been making money for him,

would try and save his business by ensuring he would make less money. He doesn't sound like a guy that had been allowing 22 people to hang on out of the goodness of his heart, and now can't do it any more because of Obamacare. I call bullshit!

5. Anonymous liar. Do you really believe some caller on RWNut Radio?

Would anyone with any business sense be carrying 20% extra workforce for no reason?

6. He says most of his employees are Hispanic

and won't say what his business is.

I wonder if he actually pays everyone the legal minimum wage.

Vegas business owner jumped in the dark and beaten sensless by a crowd of, oh, about 22 or so.

13. He's making all the widgets all by his lonesome. I would have one of them if it were strung in gold

Good on his 22 workers. Now they can look for a job where they are appreciated and respected, hopefully a good union job!

14. I'm sure he has competitors who will be happy to pick up the difference

...the thing is, if all these rabid wingnuts tank their own businesses out of rage and spite, two weeks later they will have been replaced in the markets by sane businesses. No problem.

16. pathetic asshole. Why did he go out of his way to say his employees were "hispanic?"

I hope they file some kind of lawsuit against him, but i have a feeling Nevada is a shit place for employees. I'm so used to bosses having to write you up and have a paper trail before firing you... That guy deserves to lose everything.

He's a fucking idiot if he hasn't noticed that the economy has improved leaps and bounds since Bush left, and that the Stock market doubled in that time. What a delusional Glen Beck lovin' jerkwad.

21. Every poster at FreeRepublic is CEO of a small business and they all plan on doing the same thing.

Apparently, millions of moochers will be laid off!
