I feel absolutely no effects from his presidency, besides the fact that personally I received 8,000 dollars for buying my first home. Which is awesome. With a 4.8% interest rate, by the way. Also, Banks are still giving out loans. I bought a $300,000 commercial property with 0 dollars down. Pretty sweet.
I do however believe, the worst is yet to come. We are only in the eye of the storm. I have no worries however. If your a true entrepreneur, you can make money in a bad market, and a good market.
My post is probably absolutely irrelevant to the other posts in this thread, but i didn't bother to read the Obama bashings.
As far as job security as a skill is concerned, I feel I'm good. I'm an industrial maintenance mechanic. You can always make a robot to replace a production worker but you can't make a machine to fix a machine.
Now, my actual company that I work for is a different story. At my work we make ductile iron pipe and sense the housing market has taken a huge hit, there hasn't been alot of new construction so therefore no need for water lines and such.
