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
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
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. "

its 79 plants overseas.
Kerry has criticized Bush for sending jobs abroad.
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
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,

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