"Re-Shoring" to Canada???

There is noticeable movement to "re-shore" manufacturing from PRChina to the USA. Lots of good reasons behind it, yadayada.

But maybe that "USA" destination is only temporary. The CEO of 3M issues a not-very-subtle threat:

"I judge people by their feet, not their mouth," 3M CEO George Buckley told the Financial Times of London on Monday. "We know what his instincts are -- they are Robin Hood-esque. He is anti-business.

"Politicians forget that business has choice," Buckley went on. "We're not indentured servants and we will do business where it's good and friendly. If it's hostile, incrementally, things will slip away. We've got a real choice between manufacturing in Canada and Mexico -- which tend to be pro-business -- or America." IBD via PowerLine

As the PowerLine author observes, Mexico may self-eliminate based on the level of drug-mob violence.

So Canada is a socialist hellhole and pro-business? These guys are unbelievable. Let's pick a lane on Canada shall we?

I love leaving my creamy mangoo inside Anonymous.

Trolls can be entertaining.

And so can fake Christians be "entertaining", Disgruntled. It certainly seems that way with your lack of admonishment against sodomy.

Would your priest approve of such "gleeful voyeurism"?

Every day that Dad29 outright refuses to remove such crap only shows that he is nothing more than a fraud when it comes to Christian values.

I'm far more offended by the material in Dad29's posts than in what his commenters say.

Dad29 said...

The very same Anony who dreams about Capper-nights then turns around and bitches about whether I should delete his dreams.

Dad29 said...

You'll note that I am policing the blog much more closely now.

Irrational rants clothed in piety will no longer get a free pass.

Send in.... the TROLLS!

"Irrational rants clothed in piety will no longer get a free pass."

Does that mean Dad29 you will shut down your own blog???

The Christians/Catholics whom I know would find it downright appalling, and SINFUL, for someone within their midst to advocate sodomy, regardless if they loathe the political leanings of the intended target.

Your stubborness to admit that you are being obtuse in this matter defies logic.

What would your priest say? Or your daughters?

I may disagree with your outlook on a number of things, and my posts may be sarcastic in response to your musings, but I do not desire for you or your family to be physically harmed. That is FLAT OUT WRONG no matter how you slice it.

And I'm the one being irrational???

Disgruntled--The troll is the person at 4:22 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., not me.

Capper's a big boy. He can take care of himself.

As for me, and my chilluns: they all have weapons and ammo.

John Foust said...

Me, too, Dad29. But I don't have friends and fellow-travellers who get their yucks fantasizing about rape and mayhem. Looks like you do have some conservative pals here who think that way. Why's that? If they were liberal you'd tar them with a broad brush and ascribe the same behavior to everyone from Obama on down. Why not when they're cheering your bullet-points? Get it? Bullet points!

No, no, no. Sin is sin. At least that's what you [used to] espouse.

You are being an enabler, which I thought was an exclusively liberal trait.

Dad29 said...

You nag like a hormone-laden old woman.

And I reset to "ignore permanently" as a result.

Anonymous said...

And you are as stubborn as an old mule.

You can't ignore judgement day, Dad29. And not being truly remorseful only makes matters worse in HIS EYES. Because even you know deep down that your behavior is morally reprehensible.

Besides, it's GOD NAGGING, not me.

So ignore me (and HIM) all you want, we'll be here with bells on.

What a bunch of pathetic trolls.

Foust, the only pistol you know how to use is a water pistol. Get a clue, troll.

The only pathetic person is you, disgruntled, for not calling out Dad29 for enabling a poster here to advocate sodomy (of Capper, one of Dad29's bitter blog rivals), and for wanting to punch a man of the cloth for his views on abortion.

A troll is a hit and run poster. Faust and I comment here regularly. Get a grip.
