This is the kind of ‘business acumen’ and compassion you would get from a mayor Entenman

The Entenman family owns the Fargo Harley dealership mentioned in this story;

A former Harley-Davidson of Fargo employee says he was let go for buying a lower-priced motorcycle of the same brand from a different store than Fargo.

One of the store’s owners, Jimmy Entenman, did respond, but only to say the store can’t comment on any human resources or personnel matters.

I’m sure Jimmy was relying on that couple hundred dollars in commission to go towards his margarita fund during his month long family Mexican vacation.

It seems Jimmy is a chip off the old block. When I worked for a small printshop in the early 90’s, Jim got mad at us for not printing and mailing his newsletter in one day and told our manager to ‘fire all of us’ for refusing to do it. Nevermind it was a flood coat black ink that needs at least a day to dry before folding, tabbing and mailing.

I think it’s gross that he got fired but he’s also (by his own admission) a POS employee if not human being.

Why would a man with a herniated back who missed 9 weeks of work and is also “bogged down” in hospital bills need a Harley….In January….In Fargo?

Yet more proof this country is F*%$D

Hey now, it was a ‘cheaper’ Harley. LOL.

I kind of thought the same thing, but they did fire another employee for the same reason.

Reminds me of when I see people at the C-Store buy chips and Red Bull with their SNAP card than pay cash for cigs and beer. Classy.

OMG not buying from the family store. The ultimate sin.

I heard another story today about Jim’s business acumen. I guess a few years ago the custom motorcycle shops in town were buying parts from the Sioux City HD dealership because they were cheaper than J & L. Entenman caught wind of this and cried to HD big wigs and they told the dealership in SC they couldn’t sell parts to the SF shops anymore because that was J & L’s territory.

Isn’t it interesting when capitalist ventures become dependent upon a monopolistic reality to survive? Yet, they are not socialists, they claim…… Oh no, definitely not, as long as there is a profit to be had, that is….Even though they practice a freedom of result, while preaching the freedom of opportunity. (???)

You should have heard the ruckus he raised when the police department got a few Triumph cop bikes on the cheap. Rumor is KELO was going to do a story on the Triumph bikes and a certain city councilor cried to them and squashed it. By the way, the cops who have driven the Triumph love them.

I bet they are nice. I have seen them, they look a lot lighter to. I think one of the reasons why they got them because they are all terrain.

I work with a guy who swears by euro bikes. He has two Moto-Guzzis. His 79′ has over 300K miles on it and he said it runs like it is new. It looks good to.

The fact that the local Harley dealer who is also a a city councelor has a conflict of interest is reason enough to judge him a Total D Bag Plus One. Not just a regular D Bag but a Total D Bag Plus One. Buy a Harley from a total Asshole.
