NOTICE: In a previous diary there was an image from a documentary showing a Chinese flag set above an American flag. That incident was NOT IN FREEPORT BUT IN CHINA, as the documentary stated. THIS STORY HERE IS DIFFERENT. What I am talking about (the flag being taken down) happened here. NO CHINESE FLAG, but the American flag taken down. I had this clarification here from the beginning, made it a bit clearer now to prevent any further misunderstandings. Best wishes, nickname nescio
This is about Sensata Technologies in Freeport, Illinois. The Bain owned company was sold to China, the American workers had to train their Chinese replacements and the day before the Chinese engineers arrived THE AMERICAN FLAG WAS TAKEN DOWN. WOW.
It think that is a very powerful symbolic image.
Yes, Mitt Romney might not control Bain anymore, but he still profits from its actions. By profiting from this, he accepts and embraces it. He does not disavow it. This must be tied to him. The American flag was taken down and he made some money. What a great patriot, what a great man.
All hail to Mitt Romney the patriot, making money off America's crisis.
