Elkhart's Dometic Corporation

Today’s announcement of “new jobs” at Elkhart’s Dometic Corporation, by Governor Mitch Daniels, was quite an interesting one.  I was sitting on the front row flanked by media behind.  As the Governor began speaking about the importance of “in-sourcing” jobs from Sweden, Mexico and China he boldly declared, “this proves my point that you bet we are competitive and that’s how we’ll rebuild America’s economy…bring those jobs back here to our soil.”   OK, I’m paraphrasing a bit, but that was the point. It struck me that the Governor sounded like he was addressing a national audience, a national press corps and that he was confident in his approach to fixing an ailing national economy and that today was proof that it can be done…yes, it can be done, Gov.    I commented to a friend of mine, “Sounds like the Gov is running for President”! Ironically, the sitting President is coming here tomorrow…I wonder how boldly and confidently he’ll be declaring the economic turnaround with proof that his plan is working or will work? Could we actually be looking at a Presidential ticket with our Gov on it? Anything’s possible in Indiana…we may have just seen a sneak peek of that today.  Could our Gov actually run for President?  Yes, he can…..if he wants to.

Rally During Barack Obama's Visit

Barack Obama is coming to town! Let your voice be heard! This will be the ONE and ONLY opportunity for Michiana to respond to the President's visit.

A rally will be held to refute three nationalized issues that will affect our area greatly; Cap & Trade, Card Check and Government takeover of your PRIVATE HEALTH CARE.

The rally will be at Nelson's Golden Glow Headquarters at 607 Nelson's Pkwy, Wakarusa, IN 46573 at 1:00PM, BUT you MUST be there between 10:30-11:00! After 11:00 Barack Obama's secret service will be barricading the streets and you will NOT be able to get in. The press conference will be outside and it will take place REGARDLESS of the weather, make sure you come prepared rain or shine. This will be our chance to gain NATIONAL MEDIA EXPOSURE.

If you are OPPOSED to these critical issues, then this will be YOUR ONE opportunity to stand up, voice your opinion and get your message across to DC.
