A retailer was telling me that there is a rumor that Horton is in trouble again. I know rumors are just that but could anyone dispel this bad rumor please?

I don't think Bush is the one to blame....Do you see the market running up or down? Obama just spent more than $1million dollars for every day since JESUS WAS BORN.

Bush admin. left a .4 trillion dollar deficit....the Obama clan just quadrupled that in a month.

Blame Bush all you want, till you wake up and find yourself in a Socialist country.

Sorry to get so far off track, but I get tired of folks blaming BUSH when we had the best years of economic growth and more money in the pockets of our people since post WWII under his control the first 5 years. Matter of fact if Bush has any Culpability in this at all it is that the economygrew fasterso fastand people had so much to spend that peoplecould spend so much that goods became worth way more than the actual value. When banks were loaning 200% of a value it was because people would pay that, they had to keep up. ThenCame the Democrats to the hill.

How can you Blam BUSH when Democrats gained control of Congress4 yrs ago???? Congress make the rules. They crashed the economy with fuel prices. Don't think so? Look at how fast they came down at election time and are still down. The Democratic Congress broke the economy with the Oil gouging just so they could be sure to win the election. Since the election they have put our grandkids in debt. What a DISGRACE. I hope they send him back to Chicago's underground back door politics.

He alsoplayed the race card to a disgusting level. He is only half Black, He was raised by his white Mother and Grandparents and suddenly they get not respect and you never heard a word about them. Only his father that came to this country and Like Obama said in his speech..."Worked and Toiled and Sweat under the whip and plow to plant seeds that grew crops for the white man and did this to hopefully make a better life for 'us'. His Daddy really did all that didn't he.... He whipped out his magicand plowed intoa liberal white protestor and planted his seeds in her fertile soil.Then, just like he said it grew for the white man to raise. Her Father. Then he took off back to Africa and left little Barrack for the hard working white Grandparents to support.

As you can tell I think this country just saw the biggest Beaudeville show ever put on. I am not one ounce prejudice or racist. However, I think Barrack Obama is as racist as the word can describe. He picks and chooses what race fits best at the time.


Now in keeping with the topic of this thread. As mentioned above, all companies have fallen on hard economic times. Horton is no exception. There are plans to keep the production at demand level as best as possible. They are hoping to keep the empolyees they have working now. However, I wouldn't expect a lot of R&D in this coming year.
