Remember that guy in Georgia who swore not to hire anyone as long as Obama stays in office? Some helpful context:
(1) Bill Looman is hardly some regular joe SBO (small business owner) who snapped. The guy has organized fringe militia gangs for quite some time. He had a recent chat with the Feds that might have to do with his links to more than one well-publicized domestic terrorism story, or it might concern his promise to join an armed rebellion if Obama wins another term. Could be both!
(2) His firm provides cranes and chain hoists that are useful, for example, in large factory operations. Anyone in Looman’s line of work would be less than thrilled about the NLRB and liberal gummint for trying to shutter a new Boeing plant after South Carolina spent $270 million on top of Boeing’s almost $1 billion to build it. Tack on Toyota’s recent recall issues and the region’s latent racial prejudice which, to put it generously, may have some indirect influence on Mr. Looman, and the main surprise is that he has not already gone redneck rambo on some local IRS office.
