    You had a kyron that noted a GA company would not be hiring until Obama was gone. Do you have more details? I wnat to be sure NOT to buy anything they make and let all my family and friends know. I am sick and tired of the pigheaded and nastiness that jerk like this have displayed, They are not hurting anyone but themselves. My only holiday wish to them is that the business folds and they can feel first hand the suffering that many are going through. This moron obviously forgets that this disaster of an economy started as the result of derugulation on inane tax cuts by previous administrations. But since President Obama is an "other" in their pea brains, he must be the reason.

    No one believes them, most anti Obamas are racists! And a very good idea...Boycott their products.

    @JRH3 Bill Looman of U.S. Cranes is the owner of the company and I am positive he is not the only one. Just the only one stupid enough to advertise it. So you mean if some big company comes to town and is in need of your services that makes your demand higher you won't increase your staff to meet that demand? You don't need to be in business at all. Do you know how many hard working unemployed people you slap in the face with that? He actually had signs on his trucks with that garbage. And he's a former Marine. Whatever happened to adapt an overcome?!?

    @jj/Queensryche So you slept with a "fine ass black woman" last night? Racists have never done that have they. And you did objectify her. "Fine ass?"

    I have NEVER seen chrissy call someone a racist, as in "banasy, you a racist!".
    chrissy is one of the least racist people I know...and I know a lot of people who aren't.
