Wait, i thought they were an evil, out-sourcing company only out for their CEO's bottom line?
Perhaps their move to keep them viable in the world market turned out to be a good move for the thoudands they employ?

What they don't mention is the Mexicans who are taking the American jobs won't be getting dollars or peso's. They will be getting new cardboard boxes to live in. Yes, American progress.

Isn't this the same company that is closing the doors in Osceola, WI and moving operations to Mexico?

I thought corporations were selfish and evil?

What will Morgana, Le Jumbo and Madaman do now?

They are probably secretly forcing all their employees to donate all the money to evil, conservative causes...

...oh, wait, that is democrats and unions.

Polaris and those working for them are part of the REAL America...not the black-republican-helicopter liberal wingnut society.

Maybe we could send conservative ninjas to recover that money?

Ah, the Canadian Truth Teller....from St. Paul, MN.

Or, the gutless anonymous poster.

New cardboard boxes is a good thing!

I am sure you will enjoy yours!

Typical liberal.

Please, cite your source for your "new cardboard box" assertion.

Unless you are just making your crap up as you go along....

...no shock there.

Polaris should have skipped the profit sharing and kept the Osceola plant opened. Before the nutjobs go off on the union aspect, that plant was NON-UNION. Save your breath-- The city of Osceola had already given them major tax breaks to stay open.
As for the need to compete, it was announced this winter that Yamaha is moving all of their motorsports manufacturing, and some design, onshore to the United States.
Arctic Cat, Yamaha, they don't see to have a problem with the US labor market.

The ceo of Polaris should be ashamed of closing the plant. Let's see how their sales do when the quality drops. And it will drop.

Help me out here, I frequently see your remarks about anonymous posters and the like, but what identifies you? You give no last name, no verification on a first name. No address. No phone number. No verifiable means of identification. The picture, well that's probably legit as I can't think of anyonewho would willing post a face like that and claim it otherwise. There's not enough tequila for a woman to conquer that.

How is your title anywhere legitimate or better than anyone else who posts on these boards? Save your rant about politics, dems, libs, unions, taxes, etc.
Just explain why everyone else with a moniker on these boards is a 'gutless anonymous poster' and you're not?
Sincerely,
Lee Greenwood (sorry, don't have a current picture)

Here's a resource you ignorant basement dweller-- Go drive through Juarez Mexico and first see the number of nice US factories that are there, then drive about a mile away and see the cardboard and pallet shacks that people live in.
I've been there, I've seen it. "Cite your facts!" It's cited.
Do you have GED?
No I'm not a lib, not a dem, don't belong to a union, and I pay more in taxes than you will in three lifetimes.

You are a whiny liberal...the fact that you cannot face your own reality speaks volumes.

I am sitting in my office, no basement dwelling here...so, you are both ignorant and wrong....

...you should be used to those by now, though.

You did not cite any facts...cite your source, loser.

You think your sobbing anecdotes are worth anything?

Well, maybe worth a touch more than you are...

You pay more in taxes than I will in 3 lifetimes? Wow...more unsubstantiated claims...

...yup, your a gutless, anonymous liberal poster all right!

At least "Al Bundy" was funny....you are just pathetic, no matter what name you post under.

JeffT, you're a gutless anonymous poster. You answered absolutely none of the questions asked, yet you expect credibility?
Dude, I'm the only one even giving you credibility on this board! You can't argue Juarez, you didn't establish any sort of an identity, rendering you anonymous, it's sad.

I'll substantiate the taxes, there's no way someone would pay you more than minimum wage.
Kid, I'm going to help you out, free up some time so you can get a meaningful job.
Copy and Paste (control-c, control-v) into every blog you feel needs your input-
1)You're a gutless poster.
2) You're a lib, no a dem, no-wait--a Lib-Dem!
3) You're..well..dumb.

You offer nothing, say nothing. Gutless, anonymous, nutjob.

Poor "Al Bundy"...

...you offer nothing, but especially credibility.

As for my "minimum wage" job, again, you demonstrate your ignorance.

But at least you are good and consistent at somethings!

Keep changing your name and pretending...losers like you are entertaining.

Liberals hate corporations because we are told to do so by the liberal news media. And republicans say we can't think for ourselves.
