2010 was a very terrible year within the economy for several industries and businesses within the U.S. Following closures and cost control plans, so many people during 2010 were left without employment, with layoff rates continuing to rise throughout the year, even with the massive growth in some industries, offset in most cases by further employment loss.
Now, I do have to disagree with designating all of those as "worst"; a few are pretty damn good! For example, let's take a look at # 7 Publik Skools (spelled "public schools" to those that were home or private schooled). Any time more of those taxpayer leeches are eliminated from the blood-sucking public sector workforce, the better off the rest of us are, especially home owners and children. Let me explain. I remember once looking at our property tax bill (yeah, I once owned a house, and I'm still shocked), otherwise known as rent to the government landlord who is the real owner of your "private" property (don't believe it? Try not paying your "property taxes" next year and see how long you "own" your home) and about half of the bill was designated to schools (properly called State Indoctrination and Conformity Centers). Now, I don't have kids, and I don't want to pay for yours, you brought them into this rotten world, so YOU pay the expense of raising and schooling them (though to be truthful, they'd be better off not going to school at all and just staying home building forts and making mud pies in the backyard) or just home school them (don't punish your little darlings by sending them to one the government's child prisons). YOUR CHILDREN ARE NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY! And I would go even further and end the public schools completely. Yeah, that's right, I'm calling for the abolition of all taxpayer supported "schools". Let's free the minds of future generations so we don't have as many brets running around in coming years. Plus, your property taxes will go (way) down too!
Also, # 5 a state university. Close them all, I say!
And # 2, I'm not weeping for any member of statist Big Pharma. You can shove your dangerous drugs and your phony "intellectual property" up your lying capitalist asses!
# 3 Law Firms, oh boo hoo hoo! What was it that Shakespeare wrote? Oh yeah, "The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers".
# 9 Courthouses! Oh yeah, we could do with less kangaroo court "justice" presided over by taxpayer parasite black-robed tyrants. Shut them all down!
Gee, that's half of the ten. Let's change the title to the Best/Worst layoffs, what do you say?
