The owner of polaris industries is an uncaring greedy piece of shet, sending all those jobs to mexico, when he didnít have to, they have been plenty profitable the last three years.

I wouldn't do business in Wisc. Not after watching how their Gove treats employees. I have a hard enough time improving morale much less having to deal with a Gov who provides a hostile enviroment for workers.

how did the gov make moral bad at polaris industries, what did he have to do with the employees? until recently before he was elected, polaris said we are out of here, now they are employing 60=80 employees.

I own a business. I didn't have to pay any taxes this year. Are you doing your taxes wrong or something? I have so many write-offs? I haven't had to a pay a dime in for the last three years. GE didn't pay any taxes either you moron.

Maybe you're just some worker bee that's acting as an uneducated mouthpiece for the people that write your checks. Maybe those people are the ones who fund political parties.

BTW- so much for bigmouth Governor Walkers signs that read "Open for business" on the borders. Nope, they went to Mexico. Why? Because you morons keep making it ok for them to do that. It's not taxes or wages. It's that they don't think you're worth a living wage and you morons wave that banner for them so they continue. We have such a massive class separation now. The middle class is getting beat down and it's not because of Obama or people on welfare. It's because YOU make it ok for them to keep moving our jobs across the border and overseas so the wealthy can get more wealthy. Like they're not making more money than they know what to do with? You just keep cheering them on as they send you down. What stupidity! Have you seen some of the profits of these companies for last year? Duh!!!

Whatever... just keep doing what you're doing. It actually benefits me. It doesn't benefit you but it benefits me. I could tell you that all day long and prove it to but you're so stuck in that dogma (stuck on stupid and acting like a cry baby too) that you can't see the light. You never will because you're too stupid. Follow the dogma like a carrot. Do what they say. Be their pawn. You ARE their pawn. You are very much their pawn because you have allowed them to believe that you can't do anything because the government wont let you. I don't have a master. I'll make money if there a republican in office. I'll make money if there is a democrat in office. Hell, put daffy duck there and I'll make money too.

You keep pushing for the tax breaks for me. I've already got more than I need but why not. Keep them coming. So many of us have tried to tell you what's going on but you're stuck in the "govt getting me down" victim mentality mode that you don't have the capacity to listen.

Quit pretending to be a business owner. You are obviously a liberal with way too much time their hands, and probably sipping your latte in a vegan cafe in Minneapolis.

A "Morons" comment means nothing other than to say the "Morons" mind is filled with delusion, pretending to be a business owner, when in reality the Morons is actually a lawyer that doesn't have a job or simply a simple minded left wing liberal democratic nut job. And by the way, your post name "Morons" really fits you, however, is that your first name or your last?

I'm not pretending to be anything. I am a successful business owner. I'm trying to tell you that a person can make money in any market. People that get all hung up on who is president or who is their governor seem to have a hard time realizing that. I don't care at all if the president is democrat or a republican. I could care less. People like you that make those statements seem to have the most trouble with. You can't get beyond it.

Too bad you're such a victim.

Polaris has been operating off the backs of taxpayers for years, i hope poncho and maria like their new jobs in mexico at 3.00 bucks a day, why do you think they opened up shop in oceola, low taxes, just more corporate greed, go tell your taxes story to someone who cares, the people who lost their jobs really don;t want to hear it.
