Could someone translate this into Spanish for me?

November 11th, 2010

Nora Friend, viagra buy tadalafil Talgo vice president for public affairs and business development said:

“If Wisconsin is losing its enthusiasm for its rail program and others are not, check we could go to Illinois and manufacture world-class trains there, store ” said Nora Friend, Talgo vice president for public affairs and business development. “We certainly appreciate Gov. Quinn reaching out to us. We will consider very seriously states that want to grow their rail program.”

And, in return, I’d like to say to Ms. Friend, “Screw you and the train you rode in on.”

    Really? I mean, why do you have a problem with this? They wanted to locate their business to a state with a commitment to rail. With Walker’s irrational hostility to the project, what benefit is there for Talgo in staying?

    Oh, I have zero problem with them leaving Wisconsin.

    My “screw off” is aimed at the political shenanigans that brought them here in the first place and this transparent attempt at extortion.

    Of course, if you reverse the translation process you get: “Fuck you and the train was going at.”

    I suppose that’s close enough.

    I’m not quite sure what you expect a corporate executive to say in a situation like this. Of course they’ll try to put a positive spin on it. Where’s the extortion? They’re moving on to other opportunities.

    There probably isn’t a good reason for Talgo to stay. But on the other hand, in the long run, it will benefit Wisconsin by not having the train, which is quite rational, as opposed to Gwen Moore’s irrationality. The train will be losing money that State and local taxpayers will have to pick up the tab through eternity.
    If the State has to spend millions of dollars to subsidize the choo-choo a year, then is it ok to say good bye to the train factory? I think so.

    At least we can dispense with that whole “Open for business” nonsense.

    For years the Right has been telling people they weren’t religious “enough” or patriotic “enough” now they’re telling Talgo that they aren’t businessy enough to stay. The stupid purity tests are killing America one TEA party at a time.
