Olympic Outsourcing....


Seems that Harry Reid, ex-teacher, doesn't study his donor-sheets very well.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has raised a furor over the fact that the uniforms for the US Olympic Team are made in China. Which is to say: outsourced.

Who designed these uniforms? Who actually did the outsourcing of these Olympic uniforms here?

That would be the famous American designer Ralph Lauren. Who has a habit of outsourcing his clothes to places like China, Sri Lanka and El Salvador.


That would be the same Ralph Lauren who, according to the Federal Elections Commission, on May 7, 2012 -- barely two months ago -- contributed $35,800 to the Obama Victory Fund 2012.

And the same Ralph Lauren who on May 31, 2012 donated $30,800 to the DNC Services Corporation of the Democratic National Committee. Not to mention $5,000 to the same group in $2009. And $2,300 he gave to the same group in 2008.

In the case of Lauren's contributions to the DNC in 2009 and 2008? Where was that money going?
That's right. To someone named -- Harry Reid.

Maybe Bain Capital owns a domestic clothing manufacturer??

You really slay me, Dad29. Any and all American companies, according to our capitalist system, can and do what they want with their business. Even if that means taking jobs away from Americans through outsourcing.
Yet, if Congress passed a law limiting this activity, it would be called "interference" by conservatvies.

So, do YOU have a solution to this problem?
