OK... here is the smoke N mirrors propaganda by Harmon Stoves (aka hearth and home tech.)... (aka HNI Corp.)... they keep Dane sitting in the corner wearing his slippers and waving his flag and as part of the buy out agreement and for Dane to keep collecting his well deserved retirement (I have no issue with Dane...a great man indeed and if we had more Americans like him we would all be better off). obviously Dane cannot compete or assist in a competing company so hes not going anywhere!!!.... he will continue to wear his slippers and simply wave a flag like he is told. Im sure he would love nothing more than to run through the doors of LL with his genius & innovation (only thing Harmon is innovating is the for mentioned "Glitter" these days (oppps... I forgot, they have innovated ways to cheap down the stoves these days at the same time as drastically increasing the prices... Gotta give em' prop's for fooling the whole country with "smoke N mirrors"!
I agree that we made a lot of mistakes many times over the years but this does mean USA should keep making them (two wrongs dont make it right).... If you support Asia and you wish our money to continue its forceful flow into making Asian countries the world power and the place where dreams are built than by all means buy a Harmon Stove... sometimes I think its a big conspiracy to take over our lands, our buildings, our gas stations, our liquor stores, our money...in time our whole country! start a thread about Vermont Castings and I'll really start unleashing!
