I'm sure some of you have heard this rumor already, but I think this story pretty much validates it:


The Starting Line – Bain Owned Plant Drops US Flag as US Workers Forced to Train Chinese Replacements
by Doug Porter on October 15, 2012

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney loves to berate the Chinese on the campaign trail.  He portrays himself as the candidate that will stop Beijing from “cheating” that will stem the flow of jobs being exported to Asia from the United States.  Yet an Illinois company that he has large investments in is forcing soon to be laid off workers to train their Chinese replacements even as Romney continues to claim that his programs will revive the economy and create jobs.

To make matters worse, the U.S. flag that has always flown in front of the company’s Freeport , Ill. headquarters was removed just as the Chinese trainees arrived.  The facility, which is non-unionized, employees 170 people.

Workers at the Sensata Technologies plant set up camp in an adjacent fairground over a month ago, hoping to draw more attention to their cause.  About a dozen people have been there round the clock even as temperatures outside have rapidly declined. The encampment is a nod to both the “Hoovervilles” of unemployed workers that sprung up during the Great Depression and the Occupy Wall Street movement.....

I'm honestly not surprised. Romney is a corporate raider and he makes $%@#loads of money from outsourcing to China, while he supposedly condemns it at the same time!

Let's make this viral, folks. We gotta do what we can to improve President Obama's chances to win re-election on Nov. 6th. Are you with me, fellow Kossacks? We can do this.

Yes, we can! =)
