Just read this

On the Idaho repug Facebook chat site:
(yes, I am trolling them )

‎- Newsflash: The Barack Obama re-election team is facing a significant hurdle as they cannot get all of their "made in China" Obama gear off the boats and through customs. They were going to use American companies, but realized the unions they support have driven up costs and the 35% corporate tax rate they support has driven companies overseas. What a dilemma!!!

Any comments or information? I would hope there is nothing for sale except "made in USA".

1. Gee, no actual facts or links. Surprised?

Another right-wing fantasy. The poster(s) don't seem to realize that corporations want THEM to work for less, too.

2. I don't think it's meant to be taken seriously.


It's an extremely lame joke. Like the ever popular "It's snowing - what global warming?" or "Look at all them protesters against corporations drinking their Starbucks and talkin on iPhones." Har-de-har har.

If you're going to post about a site, please be kind enough to link to it. Thanks.

4. Funny how in this fantasy, it has nothing to do with the bigwigs

ridiculous bonuses at the alleged companies being sent overseas. And of course, nothing about the big tax breaks and other goodies companies get. Of course, this story on the RW site is made up, so it is all moot.

5. Those mental simpletons should actually check out the gear before looking like idiots

 

http://store.barackobama.com/?source=primary-nav

Every item I clicked on was made in the USA

But I agree with the other poster, this was meant to be what passes for "humor" to the brain-dead.

7. Ask them if former Sen. Craig might not be able to help

Perhaps Craig's stance is wide enough to have the same kind of pull with China that Bush had when he lost one of our spy planes to our good friends. As I recall, we not only got the plane's crew back, but each and every piece of the plane was returned to us by the Chinese by way of the Russians.

9. Don't get mad at me!

Just a copy and paste of a Facebook posting. Thought it was interesting for discussion. I cannot link to it because the repugs have a closed Facebook page. I am trolling using a bogus Facebook page. I was kicked off their old open page.

What I posted is all their is, no links provided by them.

14. That's the rules. How about a screenshot? That's how some people post Facebook stuff here.

Even if it's a private page, and one can't access it without being signed or being a member, that will show it.

Those who want to post the link to dispute their claims, as shown in Reply #6, will be able to do so. A lot of DUers are Facebook members, althought some of us don't want to be on Facebook.
