“If you're paying $12, $13, $14 an hour for factory workers and you can move your factory south of the border, pay $1 an hour for your labor, have no health care, have no environmental controls, no pollution controls and no retirement, and you don't care for anything but making money, then there will be a giant sucking sound going south.”

-Ross Perot, 1992

Can't think of him without resorting immediately to Bill Clinton being elected president.

Perot was one of a kind.

He used graphs to illustrate his points. When he lost his bid for the Oval Office he kinda disappeared. RIP

I too was surprised to find out he was still alive but I always liked that I shared a birthday with him.

Khloe Kardashian? Not so much.

I still think the greatest Perot story is when financed his own para military extraction team led by Bull Simons to rescue two of his imprisoned EDS employees in Iran during the Revolution.

All joking aside, RIP Sir.
