Duke University study Obamacare impacts full time hiring, Fuqua School of Business, December 11, 2013, Nearly half of companies reluctant to hire full time employees, Shift to part time workers

“Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,”…Keith Hall, former BLS chief

“Nearly half of U.S. companies are reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ACA. One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.

Other firms will shift toward part-time workers. More than 40 percent of CFOs say their companies will consider switching some jobs to less than 30 hours per week or targeting part-time workers for future employment.”…Duke University Fuqua School of Business December 11, 2013

“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″

CFO SURVEY: AFFORDABLE CARE ACT COULD CURTAIL HIRING

Note to editors: For additional comment, see contact information at the end of this release.
Watch professor John Graham discuss the results (or use this link

DURHAM, N.C. — A significant percentage of U.S. chief financial officers indicate that because of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), they may reduce employment growth at their firms and shift toward part-time workers.

A majority of finance chiefs also believe the full Social Security retirement age should be raised to help close the budget shortfall.

Despite these issues, underlying economic conditions are expected to improve in 2014 and, except in Europe, corporate charitable giving remains strong

These are some of the findings from the latest Duke University/CFO Magazine Global Business Outlook Survey, which concluded Dec. 5. The survey has been conducted for 71 consecutive quarters and spans the globe, making it the world’s longest running and most comprehensive research on senior finance executives. Presented results are for U.S. firms unless otherwise noted.

EMPLOYMENT EFFECTS OF THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT

Nearly half of U.S. companies are reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ACA.
One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.

Other firms will shift toward part-time workers. More than 40 percent of CFOs say their companies will consider switching some jobs to less than 30 hours per week or targeting part-time workers for future employment.”

  2. I wonder if Loretta Fuddy was the one who forged the usurpers birth certificate?

  3. From the Star Advertiser January 18, 2011.
    “Q: You stirred up quite a controversy with your comments regarding birthers and your plans to release more information regarding President Barack Obama’s birth certificate. How is that coming?

    A: I got a letter from someone the other day who was genuinely concerned about it; it is not all just political agenda. They were talking on Olelo last night about this; it has a political implication for 2012 that we simply cannot have.

    (Abercrombie said there is a recording of the birth in the State Archives and he wants to use that.)

    It was actually written I am told, this is what our investigation is showing, it actually exists in the archives, written down …

    …What I can do, and all I have ever said, is that I am going to see to it as governor that I can verify to anyone who is honest about it that this is the case.

    If there is a political agenda then there is nothing I can do about that, nor can the president.”

  5. The receipt mentioned by Fuddy is significant.
    The June 6 -2007 COLB posted on factcheck.com should have also included a receipt. The “Official Receipt” would show the name of the requester and the registrant as well as other pertinent information such as parents’ names and birth date. But I doubt that the Hawaii DOH would ever reveal that receipt, if there is one, accept under court order. Very unlikely.

    A South Carolina Congressman wants the House of Representatives to take President Obama to court over his “failure to faithfully execute the laws.”

    South Carolina Republican Rep. Tom Rice introduced a resolution Thursday that would direct the House “to bring a civil action for declaratory or injunctive relief to challenge certain policies and actions taken by the executive branch.”

  7. Liberals: “We Need To Start Calling Out Christians For Trying To Exercise ‘Christian Privilege’”…
    And a new liberal myth is born, Christian privilege.

    http://weaselzippers.us/
    ==========================================
    http://washingtonexaminer.com/liberals-discuss-the-need-to-end-christian-privilege-in-the-name-of-religious-freedom/article/2540668

    It’s settled, then: Christian conservatives use religion as a justification for their discriminatory behavior, and Americans will only enjoy true religious freedom when their so-called “religious liberty” claims are defeated.

    That was the consensus Thursday at a panel discussion sponsored by the Center for American Progress in Washington.

    “People [are] using the term ‘liberty’ when they really mean ‘my liberty, your slavery,'” the Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy, president of the Interfaith Alliance, said during the discussion. He made the statement while arguing that liberals’ view of religious liberty springs from a true, originalist reading of the Constitution that was once universally understood. Unfortunately, he said, the American people have become “confused” about this question because of misleading claims made by the U.S. Conference of Catholic bishops.

    “You have the Catholic bishops advocating for ‘religious freedom,’ which doesn’t look anything like what religious freedom is in the Constitution,” Gaddy said. “Unless we do those kind of dramatic actions [such as the ACLU suing the USCCB] in order to get us back to what the foundation of religious freedom has been all the time, it’s going to get worse and worse, with people using the term ‘liberty’ when they really mean ‘my liberty, your slavery.'”

    The audience received a similar narrative of religious beliefs functioning as a Trojan horse for discrimination from ACLU senior counsel Eunice Rho, who denounced attempts to pass a Religious Freedom Restoration Act in various states.

    “These are very dangerous because they can allow religion to be used to harm others,” Rho said.

    Gaddy compared Christian florists who don’t want to provide service for gay weddings to employers who posted “whites only” signs in their windows.

    “I don’t think we don’t want to go down that road again,” he said.

    The low level of discourse was disappointing because the panel had plenty of opportunities. “It sets up a false equation of ‘my religious liberty versus same-sex marriage, reproductive rights’ — as if those two are inherently opposed and you’ve got to choose one versus the other,” said Sally Steenland, director of CAP’s Faith and Progressive Policy Initiative. “And we, as we’ll talk about later in the panel, know that’s not the case.”

    That’s a very interesting claim that happens to be at odds with the position of Chai Feldblum, whom President Obama appointed to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

    “There can be a conflict between religious liberty and sexual liberty, but in almost all cases the sexual liberty should win because that’s the only way that the dignity of gay people can be affirmed in any realistic manner,” Feldblum said in 2006.

    Unfortunately, the panelists never explained why Feldblum was wrong or articulated a judicable principle that reconciled the apparent tension between the sexual liberty of gay couples wanting to marry and the religious liberty of Christian-conservative business owners who don’t want to service their weddings.

    Instead, the audience heard cliched comparisons between such Christians and people who oppose interracial marriages.

    “We don’t tolerate that type of behavior,” the Human Rights Campaign’s Sarah Wurbelow said, without a hint of irony. “Serving a client through a contract is not the same thing as putting your imprimatur on it, saying, ‘I agree with this particular marriage.'”

    NARAL deputy policy council Lissy Moskowitz made another interesting comment while discussing the Hobby Lobby lawsuit pending before the Supreme Court, in which business owners argue that they ought not be required to pay for their employees’ contraception given their own religious beliefs.

    “That’s the concern, that if the court rules in favor of Hobby Lobby, the concern is that, well, in this context, it’s birth control, but what’s not to stop another boss from saying, ‘Well, I don’t want to cover vaccines, mental health, blood transfusions’ — I mean, the list goes on and on, and it’s really worrisome,” Moskowitz said.

    That’s an interesting problem that I don’t know how to resolve. Will the panel of lawyers, policy experts and religious leaders address this thorny topic? Do they even know it’s thorny?

    Moskowitz’s comment could have been the beginning of a conversation about questions of religious liberty, state mandates, how the public interest can be at odds with or reconciled to individual consciences, and others. At CAP headquarters Thursday, it was an argument-ender.

    Why have substantive discussions of constitutional law and American jurisprudence when you can denounce conservative “theocracy” to a liberal audience?

    “See, I grew up in a part of the country where we really believed in religious liberty but we really enforced bondage on everyone else, and it was because we were Christians and we had the Bible,” Gaddy said.

    He followed that remark by saying that interpretations of the Bible “ought never threaten the federal government and the way people are ruled by law … an interpretation of the Bible is of little consequence to the guarantee of the Constitution.”

    Later in the talk, Gaddy agreed with an interlocutor who asked if liberals “need to start educating, and calling out, Christians for trying to exercise ‘Christian privilege.'”

    “As a Christian” — a big part of Gaddy’s rhetorical power seemed to derive from the fact that he could speak as a Christian and a former Southern Baptist who could thus ratify all of the CAP audience’s view of the people with whom they disagreed — “I think Christians ought to start calling each other out, because I think you’re exactly right,” he said.

    So, this religious liberty issue is a pretty simple one at the Center for American Progress: Hidebound conservative Christians — who hold positions that, Steenland admitted, were very common in American society not very long ago (an observation that ought to engender a charitable view of her opponents’ positions, although popular opinion certainly doesn’t mean that some position or law is necessarily right or just) — fear change, dislike people who differ from them, and use “religious liberty” to justify their discriminatory views.

    “Many people have sincerely held religious beliefs that are different and are held across the spectrum and, for a florist or a bakery, nobody is trying to change what you believe or what you say, but in terms of fulfilling a contract … you have a license, you’ve opened your doors to serve the public,” said Steenland.

    “And, to turn certain people away based on who they are, it doesn’t feel like a particularly American thing to do,” she concluded.

    So, the discussion began with a statement of fear about the influence of Roman Catholic bishops on American constitutional debates and ended with a panel moderator saying that an individual following his or her conscience “doesn’t feel like a particularly American thing to do.”

    And, for some reason, there is not even a little mention of the foundation (at least these religions they choose to attack) for morality in faith exercised in the market place as being the natural law and anthropology. When they leave out or persecute the reasoning behind religious freedom they are also denying the place of science and health which of course also comes from the Creator. But this will be next in the $$$ backed “progressive” agenda.

    I’ve finally caught up. Been out of the loop for a couple days. Hadn’t heard of Fuddy’s death. There’s no such thing as coincidence. Maybe she was getting ready to talk.

  12. I’mmmmmmmm…..back! with something I believe will give a lot of people new thoughts about who they are really dealing with……… Has anybody done any significant research on Al Capone the notorious Chicago HOOD? If you havn’t then I suggest that you do,because the alleged Obamacare is the same racket that Capone used to extort millions out of Chicago shop owners. He called it PROTECTION. One shop owner asked him protection from WHAT…..he answered….ME. He then proceeded to shoot the place up and break all of the windows generating thousands of dollars in damages to various shops who then forked over huge amounts of money to keep Capone off their block.iIf a shopowner refused to pay up he was rubbed out. Today we are seeing a rebirth of the Nazi LUNACY which is being put upon America in exactly the same manner as it was put upon Europe……in increments.Each increment is carefully planned to not cause our still sleeping society to not awaken.. When our society of now dumbed down morons finally awaken it will be far too late for them to do anything to resurrect themselves. Stupid begets STUPID.,and it appears that it will have to happen before the morons will figure out that they have been HAD. Then along comes Soetoro with his Al Capone crapola,which is called Obamacare. to hit them with.,and they will be too busy trying to figure it out for them to see the bigger picture. Obamaqcare is FRAUDULANT. It was FRAUDULANTLY PASSED,and is still a fraud. The perpetrators is CONGRESS,and the LIBERAL LUNATICS.. All are in it up to their eyebrows,and it is probable that none of them will ever admit their part in it. They will choose to go down with the ship. simply to avoid prosecution for pplacing fraud into Federal law. Soetoro will probably choose the same fate..He along with ALL of the perpetrators will eventually be dispatched. The trials of the Nazis at Nuerenberg will seem like a very small trial when allof the upper echelon LIBERAL LUNATICS are finally IMPRISONED for TREASON.

  13. Sorry for the mispunctuation,and mispelling. I have not had a very good day today! I will get out now so that I can calm down a little. BYE BYE

  14. Before I shut down here is another thought………
    Nothing like a little TINKERITIS to cause catastrophic engine failure. Same thing happened to the airplane carrying Ron Brown, and twelve innocent people. Perhaps the tinkering was done by the same person! Just a viewpoint. Bye bye

  15. Read this MSN piece on the birther conspiracy theories being ratcheted up by Fuddy’s death. Wish there were comments. I couldn’t find any.

  16. I am so tired hearing about white privilege and now Christian privilege. My parents grew up in the heart of the depression standing in food lines and thinking 5 cents was a lot of money. My dad fought in WWII and participated in D-day and watched men dying all around him. He was brave. He fought for his country. He came home, went to college, worked his but off to support his family, and hardly had time to sleep. He grew vegetables and flowers on the side to make a little extra money and supply food for us kids. People who say he was privileged are really making excuses for why they are lazy. Hard work. It never hurt anyone except the lazy folks. I realize many want jobs who can’t find them. I am not talking about them. I am talking about the excuse makers.

    ****************************************
    Old Sailor, you are exactly right about O’Care! Anyone in business or the investment sector that tried to pull a fraud like this would be taken to court and prosecuted. We were totally against it when it became law, but until we are beginning to see this corrupted piece of junk played out with all its ramifications, none of us could begin to imagine what an evil monstrosity it is.
    Anyone who thinks this can be fixed to make it tolerable has a hole in his head. Of course, the dumb progressives will continue to protect it, come hell or high water. They have to stand by their guy.

    My fear is that by the time we have enough in the Senate to override a presidential veto, the proverbial train will have left the station so far as to make it very hard to return to a free market for health care.

    Take care, friend. Hope you feel better.

  19. Hi Cabby,

    Read the article you posted.

    First of all, the ‘counts per minute (CPM) is elevated’. CPM of what? The article also doesn’t mention the media being tested; air, water, crops, soil, etc. Very vague.

    On Tuesday, I got nothing unusual in air and water from our own array, or that of EPA (RadNet) and we received no alerts from the NRC, or any other entity. I find it odd that all of a sudden, ‘something’ is registering? More info is needed!

    I’ll check on Monday but as far as I know, everything has been in line with what we expect to see at this time of year. Thanks for the heads up :).

    At first I believed this was a tragic accident. Then, I felt like maybe she was getting close to talking so she had a 'accident'. The other possibility is that others were thinking about talking, and they just made a very public statement. The answer to this riddle lies with the Cold Case Posse, I'm sure they have enough information to guess what really happened. If they implicate her death in a cover of the investigation then it's probably not an unfortunate event.
