Hey all,It's me,Mitch. This is a success story. I've been in China hoping to move more American industry to their country. Sure,it sucks to be an American worker,but the rewards will go to my core constituents;the owners of business and the investor class and their investment houses. Everyone seems to be in agreement of such efforts. Otherwise,how did my political career continue to grow? The people continue to vote for multi-millionaire Republicans. You enjoy our efforts even though you don't enjoy the benefits of our endeavors. You're voyeurs,you enjoy watching us succeed. Hoosiers don't want change or developments to better the lives of the ordinary Hoosier,nope. Hoosiers want to see jobs move to other countries and to rely upon small wage service jobs.

If you think I'm not correct...Then please explain to me why Dan Coats was elected as our new Senator?

When so many people are still out of work, your bragging is disgusting. I am sorry for the people who know you. Maybe you could try helping people, and forget about yourself for awhile. I know a lot of former uaw people, as I am one, and many of them have been hurt by the uaw. It is all for itself, and you may find thaqt out the hard way. Instead of bragging, try giving thanks to God for what you have. former union person
