It was founded in 2001 by a Chinese guy to manufacture batteries for various non-automotive industries. One thing leads to another eh? Hello Lithium!

Sokay, Johnson Controls is purchasing the company and will likely deal some of it off to a Chinese firm or two.

And if you are a woman working in the Obama administration the number is:
"When all White House employees are considered, the Obama administration's record dims a bit further. Female employees earn a median salary of $60,000, roughly 18 percent less than men, whose median salary is $71,000." From the Washington Times.

I find it amazing how people actually believe that ANY president can change ANYTHING. The republicans shoot down anything that a democrats come up with, and vice versa . No matter how good of an idea it is, or how good it would be for the American public.
Blaming Obama for the mess we are in is utterly stupid, and confirms that the general public is made up of people that can't think on their own.
People argue over how good, or bad they think Obama is based on election commercials, and what their friends tell them about him......ya gotta love it.
Things will never change, no matter WHO is the president.
Then it's simple. Vote for Obama!

Mitt Romney: his social program plans are a crime against humanity.

His tax plans are pure greed for the already rich.

And:

Mitt Romney wears magic panties to boot!

We can't have that!

Save the 12 year Olds! Vote for Obama!

I can see the future.

Before this election is decided I bet we see the Benghazi terrorists or at least someone purporting to be them, either blown away or arrested.

How convenient that will be for a hemorrhaging Obama campaign!

What the president often calls subsidies for “Big Oil” are legitimate tax provisions that apply to virtually all American manufacturers and producers. In fact, companies like ExxonMobil actually are specifically disadvantaged:
The oil and gas industry deduction under section 199 of the tax code, for instance, is lower than the deduction allowed for nearly all other U.S. manufacturers.
No, thank you. But, we would like to be treated exactly like every other manufacturer in the United States.
By the way, since we only made 9.6 billion dollars in the United States, but had to pay 12.6 billion dollars in taxes just for being here, please tell us why we should stay here and not move our operations to, oh, say, Russia, or China, or Brasil, or any other goddam country where we wouldn't have to pay more in taxes than we earn in that country.
Thank you.
No. There are certain provisions that apply only to the oil industry.

If Exxon made 9.6 billion before taxes & paid 12.6 in corporate taxes, they need to hire new accountants.

Oh! I will play:

9-11-1857 In Utah:

Mormons slaughter over 150 men, women and young adults "since their not mormon."

The Mormons had called a truce after days of shooting, then turned on the unarmed settlers and butchered them in cold blood.

Rumor has it BY himself, as prophet and supreme leader of the cult, gave the order to murder.

Want to bring up old schittt?

Search: 9-11-1857 Mormon's murder settlers

Oh yeah: check out Mormon prophet marry's 12 year old? 2008!

June 9, 1964
Republicans condemn 14-hour filibuster against 1964 Civil Rights Act led by U.S. Senator and former Ku Klux Klansman Robert Byrd (D-WV), who served in the Senate until his death in 2010. At Byrd’s funeral, former Democrat President Bill Clinton said,“He once had a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan, what does that mean? I’ll tell you what it means. He was a country boy from the hills and hollows from West Virginia. He was trying to get elected. And maybe he did something he shouldn’t have done come and he spent the rest of his life making it up. And that’s what a good person does. There are no perfect people. There are certainly no perfect politicians.”
June 10, 1964
Senate Minority Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL) criticizes Democrat filibuster against 1964 Civil Rights Act, calls on Democrats to stop opposing racial equality. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was introduced and approved by a staggering majority of Republicans in the Senate. The Act was opposed by most southern Democrat senators, several of whom were proud segregationists—one of them being Al Gore Sr. Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson relied on Illinois Senator Everett Dirksen, the Republican leader from Illinois, to get the Act passed.
August 4, 1965
Senate Republican Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL) overcomes Democrat attempts to block 1965 Voting Rights Act; 94% of Senate Republicans vote for landmark civil right legislation, while 27% of Democrats oppose. Voting Rights Act of 1965, abolishing literacy tests and other measures devised by Democrats to prevent African-Americans from voting, signed into law; higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats vote in favor
February 19, 1976
Republican President Gerald Ford formally rescinds Democrat President Franklin Roosevelt’s notorious Executive Order authorizing internment of over 120,000 Japanese-Americans during WWII
September 15, 1981
Republican President Ronald Reagan establishes the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, to increase African-American participation in federal education programs
June 29, 1982
Republican President Ronald Reagan signs 25-year extension of 1965 Voting Rights Act
August 10, 1988
Republican President Ronald Reagan signs Civil Liberties Act of 1988, compensating Japanese-Americans for deprivation of civil rights and property during World War II internment ordered by FDR
November 21, 1991
Republican President George H. W. Bush signs Civil Rights Act of 1991 to strengthen federal civil rights legislation
August 20, 1996
Bill authored by U.S. Rep. Susan Molinari (R-NY) to prohibit racial discrimination in adoptions, part of Republicans’ Contract With America, becomes law
Still trying to figure out why Republicans are always called racist while Democrates are the defenders of everyone's rights.
Both sides have racist but this clearly outlines that for a party that continues to ignor the facts.

How are you today, liar?

Mitt Romney's national lead over President Obama grew even more Thursday, with the latest Gallup survey showing the Republican nominee up 7 points -- as polling in the battlegrounds indicates the electoral map may be shifting in Romney's favor.

Could happen. Obama could drop another drone bomb on innocent civlians and then claim he killed the Benghazi terrorists. I would not put that past him. He did something similiar to Reverend Wright the last election although he did stop short of actually killing him.
