Interesting, very interesting.....hmmm I am now informed this is mostly fiction...

Just read this email forward I got about the glorious heroic John Kerry, Democrat Candidate for President, I spit on him, hahahaha.... Long live George W. Bush!

"
.... I found this rather interesting. Politics can be very


confusing...









Shortly after reading the following e-mail content, I happened to

look at the label of a jar of Heinz sandwich slice pickles. Yep...."Made in

Mexico" Check some of your Heinz products.



"Sen. John Kerry keeps talking about U.S. corporations leaving this

country and setting up shop in foreign countries, taking thousands of

jobs with them. He is right, because that has happened. However, he is trying to

blame it on George W. Bush.



As far as I know, Bush has not moved one factory out of this country

because he is not the owner of a single factory.



That cannot be said about Kerry and his wife, Teresa Heinz-Kerry.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Kerrys own 32 factories in Europe and

18 in Asia and the Pacific. In addition, their company, the Heinz Company,

leases four factories in Europe and four in Asia. Also, they own 27 factories

in North America, some of which are in Mexico and the Caribbean.



I wonder how many hundreds of American workers lost their jobs when

these plants relocated in foreign countries. I also wonder if the workers in

Mexico and Asia are paid the same wages and benefits as workers in the United

States.



Of course they're not. However, Kerry demands that other companies that

relocate should pay the same benefits they did in the U.S. Why does he

not demand this of the Heinz Company, since he is married to the owner?



If Kerry is elected, will he and his wife close all those foreign

factories and bring all those jobs back to America? Of course they won't. They're

making millions off that cheap labor. "

John Kerry's Wife Owns the Heinz Corporation, Which
Has a lot of the Foreign Workers Kerry Criticizes
President Bush About-Fiction!


Summary of the eRumor
The message says that the Heinz Company, owned by the
wife of presidential candidate John Kerry, has 57 or
its 79 plants overseas.
Kerry has criticized Bush for sending jobs abroad.







The Truth
First, the Heinz company has issued a statement
clarifying that neither Teresa Heinz Kerry nor Senator
Kerry has any involvement in the management or the
board of the business.
It also says that neither Teresa Kerry nor any of the
Heinz endowments or trusts holds any significant
percentage of of shares of the company and that their
holdings are less than four percent.
In other words, no controlling interest.
The statement also says that sixty percent of the
sales of the company are overseas and that the foreign
plants allow them to serve local customers with
fresher ingredients.
In other words, their foreign operations are for the
purpose of doing business on foreign land, which is
not the same, for example, as an American factory
firing its workers and having the same work done in
another country by cheaper labor.

Teresa Heinz Kerry was married to the late Senator
John Heinz III, a Republican from Pennsylvania.
He was killed in an aircraft accident in 1991, leaving
his portion of the family fortune to his wife,
estimated to be $500 million.

OK, if nothing else I would say old Kerry married himself a tidy little sum of money when he landed this Republican's widow!!

I just don't like Kerry. I haven't liked the presidents during my life time so far. I thought Clinton was alright, but I realized he ****ed us over now with the terrorist situation.

Former Military Colleagues: Kerry 'Unfit to Be Commander in Chief'
Marc Morano, CNSNews.com




Monday, May 3, 2004



Hundreds of former commanders and military colleagues of presumptive Democrat nominee John Kerry are set to declare in a signed letter that he is "unfit to be commander in chief." They will do so at a press conference Tuesday in Washington.


"What is going to happen on Tuesday is an event that is really historical in dimension," John O'Neill, a Vietnam veteran who served in the Navy as a PCF (Patrol Craft Fast) boat commander, told CNSNews.com. The event, expected to draw about 25 of the letter-signers, is being organized by a newly formed group called Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.

"We have 19 of 23 officers who served with [Kerry]. We have every commanding officer he ever had in Vietnam. They all signed a letter that says he is unfit to be commander in chief," O'Neill said.

O'Neill, an attorney in Houston, Texas, is no stranger to Kerry. O'Neill served in the same naval unit as Kerry and commanded Kerry's swift boat after Kerry returned to the United States.

Kerry's command of the PCF boat lasted four months and ended shortly after he received his third Purple Heart. According to naval regulations at the time, any soldier who received three Purple Hearts could request a transfer out of the combat zone.

Kerry and O'Neill engaged in a nationally televised debate in 1971 on "The Dick Cavett Show" over Kerry's allegations that many Vietnam soldiers had routinely engaged in atrocities such as raping and cutting off ears and heads of Vietnamese soldiers and citizens. Kerry was the then spokesman for the anti-war group Vietnam Veterans Against the War.

"We are going to be presenting a letter that deals with Kerry's unfitness to be commander and chief that has been signed by hundreds of swift boat sailors, including most of those who served with Kerry," O'Neill explained.

"The ranks of the people signing [the letter] range from admiral down to seaman, and they run across the entire spectrum of politics, specialties and political feelings about the Vietnam War," he added.

Among those scheduled to attend the event at the National Press Club and declare Kerry unfit for the role of commander in chief are retired Naval Rear Adm. Roy Hoffman, who was the commander of the Navy Coastal Surveillance Force, which included the swift boats on which Kerry served.

Also scheduled to be present at the event is Kerry's former commanding officer, Lt. Cmdr. Grant Hibbard. Hibbard recently questioned whether Kerry deserved the first of his three Purple Hearts that he received in Vietnam. Hibbard doubted the severity of the wound and whether it resulted from enemy fire.

"I've had thorns from a rose that were worse" than Kerry's wound for which he received a Purple Heart, Hibbard told the Boston Globe in April.

Organizers are confident that Tuesday's event and the letter with hundreds of signatures would educate people about Kerry.

"It is one of the largest outpourings of concern about him being commander in chief that anybody could have in a presidential campaign, and it is by the people who know him best," O'Neill said.

'Unfit Commander in Chief'

Swift Boat Veterans for Truth maintains that Kerry's fellow Vietnam veterans are almost uniform in their disdain for his military service and anti-war protests.

"Not only a majority of the people who served with him feel that way, but a vast and overwhelming majority," O'Neill said. He added that more than "90 percent of the people contacted by Swift Boat Veterans for Truth responded to the request to sign their name, with only 12 declining to sign."

"Comrades who actually served with him, almost all of them, are opposed to him, and believe he would be an unfit commander in chief and intend to bring the truth of his actual record to the attention of the American people," O'Neill said.

He hopes the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth can reveal to the American people what he sees as Kerry's flawed character.

"In the military, loyalty between commanders and the troops serving them is a two-way street. We have here a guy that with all of us in the field, actually fighting the North Vietnamese, came home and then falsely accused all of us of war crimes at a time when the people in uniform couldn't even respond," O'Neill said.

"And he did that knowing that was a lie," he added.

'Real John Kerry'

B.G. Burkett, author of the book "Stolen Valor" and a military researcher, believes that Tuesday's event will not be dismissed easily by Kerry's campaign as a "partisan" attack.

"There are probably just as many Democrats amongst sailors who sailed swift boats as there are Republicans. What Kerry fails to realize is this has nothing to do with politics; this has to with Vietnam veterans who served, who have a beef with John Kerry's service, both during and after the war," Burkett told CNSNews.com.

"The American people do not know John Kerry, and hopefully the swift boat crews and other Vietnam veterans will make sure that the American public knows the real John Kerry," he said.

Jim Loftus of Kerry's press office referred questions about Swift Boat Veterans for Truth's event on Tuesday to spokesman David Wade. Wade did not return CNSNews.com's requests for comment. Copyright CNSNews.com
_______________________________________________________

I swear, John Kerry is going to go down as one of the worst presidential candidates in the history of the United States. He is the epidemy of everything Liberals claim to hate and they should realize that they are hanging on to a sinking ship. John Kerry has never had anyone's best interests in mind except his own.
