If the potential consequences were millions of unemployed and entire cities effectively being shut down, like in the automakers situation, I'd agree.

Since that's not the case, I'll just chalk your comment up to knee jerk political ideology.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Like all guarantees, they are only as good as the guarantor.

Re: Hunter declares Chpt 11 BK

“Our dealers, our dedicated employees, our products make up the Hunter brand and this action will allow us to continue.”

Sincerely hope they are right. I heard this 3 times before, C&C in '86 & '90, Hinterhoeller in '90 and they are both gone, along with so many others. Lot's of causes - change in personal priorities, virtual excitement like 'reality TV', change in spending priorities (count the cars in drive-thrus at meal time), fear of/lack of understanding of excitement, economy, continuing middle class erosion, rising material costs (oil?). BTW - glass boats don't rot like wood/rust like steel.

Hope they are right and avoid putting too many more quality craftsmen/women out of work.

They don't buy them because they don't have reliable, well paid employment.

Back in the 80's when the corporations started the race to the bottom by cutting staff, compensation and benefits, I said it would result in them killing the golden goose because no-one would be able to afford their products.

Looks like I was right.

Of course the short sighted fools and criminals responsible for it are just fine, thank you, because they got their enormous share compensation and got out. They can afford fleets of mega yachts while the carnage they created only affects the rest of us peons.

Either that or it was Obama's fault.

It's a pretty dark cloud though.

A lot of good folks lost their jobs with Luhrs.
