That's a great question.
you left out Destroy peoples’ life savings, and Destroy freedom
Create as many parasites / government dependents / Democrat voters as possible - check!
Pelosi: We have to destroy the economy in order to save the economy.
The Marxist doctrine verbatim.
Republican govenor Ernie Fletcher a few years ago tried to get Right To Work going in Kentucky, but it failed. It also didn’t help that the dumbass schizofrenic voters of this state who only accidentally vote Republican sometimes kicked him out after 1 term.
Kentucky is now basically an island. If Michigan gets Right to Work, Kentucky better get its ass in gear.
Thanks. Updating the list now, eliminating duplicates, combining categories...
HOORAY Johnson Controls! Prepare. Persevere.
Johnson Controls grabbed parts of Plastech, the automotive supplier company I worked for that went completely bankrupt about 6 years ago.
