New Horizons = crony capitalism. Little wonder that Ms. Bediako is shilling for Pres. Obama.

Nic Williams

New Horizons is one of the only real jobs left in norwalk that you can make a real living orking at so your comment is completely off context it shows just how little intelligence exists in this town still. As a proud employee of the bakery for over 7 years now I wouldnt want to work any where else.

Contango

@ Nic Williams:

Congratulations on your employment!

"One of the only real jobs left" says it all.

The fact 'is' that without politically connected govt. money thrown at NH, it may have went the way of CVG and so many others over the past decades.

Thank fellow taxpayers for helping you continue your employment. Be sure to vote for more crony capitalism with Pres. Obama.

Nic Williams

Oh I will. and for your information New Horizons was doing just fine without the "Capitalist" money they got. even tho Obama is the most anti capitalism pres. weve ever had. go get an education b4 you spit trash out. I suppose your going to tell me to make a foil helment to block the government from reading my mind and sleep against the wall so I dont get probed by aliens.

If true, then why did they request and accept the kleptocrat money?

If you think that you'd look cute in a "foil helmet" - go for it.

Nic Williams

Are you hitting on me creepy guy with the foil walls.

Contango

@ Nic Williams:

'Whatever.'

So why did NH request and accept the state grant money if according to you they didn't need it?

Nic Williams

Because it could be put to good use. Unlike alot of other companies that got stimulis money we are still thriving. Not to mention the Brown family has invested millions upon millions of their own money into the plant since then. You need to do some more investigating before you jump to all these crazy conclutions. I think your just another right wing tea party nut lookin for someone to atack. Just a thought mind you.

Contango

@ Nic Williams:

"Crazy conclusions"? You just confirmed it!

So the govt. should decide winners and losers in the business world by using taxpayer money?

Maybe the govt. shoulda propped up typewriter manufacturers with "stimulus money"?

"Stimulus money" is a tax and/or a public debt.

Happy for the Browns - let 'em us their own money.

All those yrs. of yeast sniffing are gettin' to ya - "just a thought."

Nic Williams

If your talking old school typewritters you are goofy. Why would we give money to a company that has no future I mean really. Its called a computer with a printer. I can only imagine you or someone close to you lost their job at a typewriter factory for you to be so angry in which case I am sorry I hate to here about anyone losing their jobs. But thats no reason to be mad at your government for giving money to companies that they know have the ability to grow. Just a thought mind you. And that yeast has had no effect on me that im aware of. The flour and cornmeal may be destroying my lungs but the yeast is ok. Thanks for the concern though really appreciate it.

What hypocrisy ! They make buns for McDonald's and Michelle "Booty" Obama wants to burn the fast food industry down. Go figure.

Contango

I like the lady in the red coat holding her sign down. Mayor Lesch's gaze tends to wander off occasionally.

And the muppet reading the speech in the beginning sounds like he's bored and is simply going through the motions. "Romney bad, Obama good."

Little excitement is presented here. Yea, whatever, get out and vote for Pres. Obama...ho hum.

mister wizard

Yeah, Contango....I think the Dopey Hopey Changey drugs are starting to wear off. Most people I know that voted for CommieBama last time aren't happy little campers these days.

Bob Beavers Story:

Robert M. Beavers, Jr. began investing in privately held companies after a 37 year career with the McDonald’s Corporation. After creating and acquiring several companies, Beavers Holdings was formed with the vision of providing experienced management, back office support and financial strength to the various operating entities. Beavers Holdings has enabled Bob and his partners to grow and acquire other complimentary businesses.

Contango

@ thereader: Good for Mr. Beavers, but NH still took a $1 million grant from OH taxpayers for expansion - crony capitalism.

How many times are you gonna use the term 'Crony Capitalism?' I mean, since it was sputtered out of Mitt Rommey's mouth, it's become the next new GOP talking point. Too bad that most don't realize that Republicans are notorious for it. Halliburton, anyone?

Do you even understand the term?

I don't listen to Mr. Romney.

Would you rather I use "kleptocracy," "corporatism," or "fascism"?

Keep working on your civility - you're 'somewhat' improving.

NewlyTrucker

Sounds like an inside reference to New Horizons pending sale to Best Harvest.

thereader

Yeah, pretty ironic that the "Obama-Biden Heartland Tour" visits New Horizons. By the way, I know three people who work there and two of them are republicans. Imagine that! a republican union factory worker.

Contango

@ thereader: Repub union member? Closed shop - no choice. Give 'em RTW and see how many employees, Dem, Repub or independent stay in the union payin' dues.

hit the road jack

What I would like to know is,why would someone like Obie have some blow hards traveling around like this money spending spree is some kind of solution to our problems. this administration is so full of racist bigotsI cannot believe you suckers fall for this crap! why is GM moving all these union jobs to China for? where's all the union cryass babies on this?,what a bunch of fools.

Contango

@ hit the road jack: The Obama campaign figured that the "rubes" would enjoy the attention.

Wow! A "gas guzzling" RV with an "Obama-Biden" sign on the side came into town!!! It must mean he cares. That's enough to convince me to vote for Obama!!!

Lesch thought it was a park dedication...

I love these commercials that are running on T.V. Bozo has one that says how Romney sent jobs to CHINA and he stood up to them.Right now there are three Chinese Companies building or repairing bridges,an interstate just awarded in Texas and blades for wind turbines bought from China.G.M.is now known as China Motors.They now have more operations in China than the U.S.In fact don't we own 25% of them ?God was removed from their platform and booed when put back in, but there stands those supposedly Christians oohing and aahing,what hypocrites.The Senate has voted to not cut foreign aid to our enemies but can cut 750 billion dollars from Medicare.And these stupid seniors are still in his camp all I can say is God Save The United States !
