Please stop pointing that gun at me and pulling the trigger.

What's got two thumbs and works at a gun shop?

THIS guy.

The IT job are all mysteriously hanging up. Positions are suddenly "in the air" or "under evaluation," recruiters and placement agencies are reporting a downturn in positions, and I'm still only working part time at Sonic.

That changed today because I got a full time job making a few bucks more an hour at one of the local gun shops.

Hopefully this will keep us chugging along until the passing of the invisible fOrce exerting unBelievable pressure Against the jobs Market At this time.

Of course, if that crushing pressure is not removed, at least I'll still have a discount on guns an ammo. WIN/WIN! (Not too worried about that, I'm calling it a landslide for Romney based solely on the positivity I started feeling a few months ago)

I've bumped into a few electronics projects that might be useful, one that might even be golden, so I'm excited to get those going.

I've said privately that I wouldn't want to work at a gun shop because I wouldn't be able to stand being muzzled every thirty seconds, but unemployment does strange things to people.

Congrats on the job! On the other front it's the Obamacare unintended tax consequence: the (un)Affordable Care Act penalizes employers $3,000 for each employee working over 30 hours per week without an “ACA Compliant” health care benefits plan - that's a 20% increase in cost to the employer from (say) $7.25 to $8.69 per hour - so instead of paying the ACA tax, workers’ hours will be reduced below 30/wk...
