Outstanding! Of course, Wisconsin’s leftists are having a meltdown over this factory. After 8 years of accusing Governor Walker of bringing NO jobs to Wisconsin, they don’t like these jobs and are trying to use this issue against Walker in his campaign for a 3rd term. Fie on them!

For those who are unaware, unemployment in Wisconsin is now about 2.8% which means that everyone who wants a job has one. Foxconn will bring new people to the state who will buy houses and all kinds of things — spreading the wealth.

It’s time for me to remove the magnetic bumper sticker from the face of my freezer and put it back on my car — “Scott Walker is my HERO”
