President Obama will travel to Austin Thursday to promote job creation, while profitable corporations are moving to Texas to escape his bad economic policies. Huge companies in the booming firearms industry are considering moving to the Lone Star State, where Gov. Rick Perry promises a welcoming business environment.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Monday that Mr. Obamas trip to the Texas capital will highlight the need to ensure that good jobs for the middle class are available here in this country and that includes the kinds of improvements weve seen in manufacturing and in industries in manufacturing that represent the future of the economy here and around the world. That is all happening in spite of Mr. Obamas agenda.
The CEO of Sturm, Ruger & Co. Inc. announced last week that the gun manufacturer will create 500 to 700 new jobs but not anywhere near its headquarters in Connecticut. Michael Fifer told shareholders that he is looking for a 250,000-square-foot building, hopefully in Texas.
Mr. Fifer told his investors that he asked Mr. Perry to find a space for his third plant, adding that, I wouldnt be surprised if he does it. Existing plants in New Hampshire and Arizona will remain operational. Connecticut Gov. Gov. Dannel Malloy rushed through drastic gun-control legislation in April.
Ruger wants to increase production because its guns have been selling like hotcakes. Earnings increased 53 percent in the first quarter, compared to 2012, driven by the 39 percent increase in sales. This mirrors the entire firearm industry, which has been unable to keep up with demand since Mr. Obama made gun bans and restrictions a top priorities of his second term.

Serious thunderstorms have been raging this evening with large hail (some as large as baseballs) and “deadly” lightning and 70 mph winds. I’m hoping it all hit him.
This asshat comes to Texas and promotes the need for jobs in one of the few places in the country that has a booming job market? Where’s he going next Oklahoma,North Dakota? How about he go to New York and explain to the folks upstate why they can’t get fracing going up there, they have a huge gas reserve there, How about he go to western Colorado and explain to those folks why they can’t drill in one of the worlds largest oil reserves under their feet, how about he explain why he deliberately blocks a pipeline that would create thousands of jobs... Give me a freaking break
We need some of the ammo manufacturers to also expand down here.
Please add me to your TX pinglist. Thank you.
You might want to make the same offer to the TX state board, if you haven’t already done so.
