Slim Jims needs to be deep-fried, sugar-frosted and have a beer center. Then they'd be perfect.

I didn't see anywhere where Gov. Taxing Teddy had anything to do with getting these jobs brought to Ohio. God knows if he had even an idea that they were doing this he'd been out front banging his drum over less than 200 jobs! Let's talk about the 1000's lost in Ohio!

Wow! What dummies ConAgra must be. Everybody knows that Ohio taxes are the highest in the world! And the only reason any business would choose a location is based on the tax burden.

They musta ate too many Slim Jims.

Yes lets, and while we are at it lets discuss who Strickland inherited this mess from - 18 years of Repbulican rule in the statehouse and the governors mansion. I think Ohioans will remember and give Ted four more years.

Actually, Ohio taxes for businesses are some of the lowest, if not the lowest, in the Midwest due to the elimination of the Tangible Personal Property Tax.

Cheney, Mitch Daniels of Indiana followed four dems that left him with an 800 million deficit. He has turned around that state and they now have a surplus after hiring many state workers and cuttin taxes. Why can't teddy do the same ?
