They demand that the businesses show more profit, and if it means shipping jobs overseas, damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead...screw the american economy, as long as some numbers are reached in record time...
    As for $75 per hour, who was it that signed the contracts with the unions if not the corporate types, who then gave themselves huge salaries and bonuses for giving away the farm???.
    Unions suck, but corporate and wall street types suck even more.....

    I am suggesting that keeping low skill, low wage, production possibilities limiting jobs in this country as being a liberal position. If liberals really gave a damn about less fortunate people, instead of using their (the poor) existence as a gear towards more governmental control, they would be empowering them with education.

    Instead they wish to offer oppression in disguise, willing to ship the most productive jobs (minority of all employment) overseas, while the majority of employment (low tech low productivity) stays here!

    If a task can be completed with comparable production overseas, while limiting input costs, why do Americans even want them to stay here?

    My question to those of you who share this sentiment: If jobs going overseas takes employment away from Americans, how come we have had job growth almost every year since the Clinton administration?

    Hint: Look at what the top ten in demand jobs were in 1997, and compare the list to 2007.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Besides, food stamps is a farm subsidy more than anything else.
    I'm calling complete BS on that. People would have to live within their means and eat less prepackaged foods.

    They would not starve that is just a red herring.

    I've seen the exchanges where the person who gives the cash for food stamps gets a 2:1 return on their investment.

    Now though instead of selling the food stamps directly they have to go with the person who holds the EBT card.

    It's a joke.

    Well it would certainly be a travesty for millions of people to begin to starve in the United States.

    That is a red herring if there ever was one.

    People would not starve, I can't believe I have to say this.

    Sure - it wasn't failed policies during the Clinton administration that created the last recession, right?

    There ARE people who legitimately need the help food stamps provides. However, it is also true that there are others to use their food stamps to purchase things like lobster and chocolate cake.
