    Wrong, unregulated, only those with power get to participate and set the rules, just like the feudal system.

    Make a situation desperate enough by those in power, people will sell their souls if they could.

    Which is not what happens in the free market. Every price for every thing is set by the market as a whole, not by any person or small group of people. YOU have exactly the same amout of power as everyone else.

    Don't want to have your job outsourced? Get one that cannot be.

    If they can't stand the heat, they can get out of the foundry.

    it's that easy.

    Why should American consumers pay more for goods just because some "American" worker is demanding too much money to do the job here?

    Why should American consumers pay more for goods just because his own government is demanding too much tax money from the company?

    Why should American consumers pay more for a product just because The Messiah imposed a completely ridiculous Crap&Trade scam to bilk money from power companies which naturally raised energy costs for manufacturers in the US?

    Why should a business being attacked on all sides by the US government and the goonions hire employees here when he can hire them in Bangladesh and no deal with the nonsense any more?

    And go where? On the streets? Die?

    Seriously, Americans will go someplace and it will be on the streets, glad you approve of that.

    Your complaints do nothing to change the situation.
    Rather than voice your entitlement to live the way you want to, why dont you do something about the situation -- get a job that cannot be outsrouced.

    If they refuse to work, that's a more reasonable option than holding me up at gunpoint to feed them.

    Then again, they could decide to work for less money.

    They could have spent their lives learning something more useful that can't be outsourced.

    Since the alternative is wreaking even more damage on the US economy, forging even more slave chains on the productive people, and in general shredding the little pieces of the Constitution that are still left, yes, outsourcing if a fine damn idea.


    You have to ask yourself, why are companies outsourcing?

    The answer is that the politicians you like, the policies you approve of, brought this country to this point.

    Not my policies, yours. My policies say "don't tax business", "don't have government do for you what shouldn't be done at all", and "what, you crazy, trusting a politician?"

    An ASTOUNDING observation, one that could only be made by someone with The Obama's supreme mental prowess.

    So... what are you going to DO about it?

    Spend more money?
    Run up more deficits?
    Print more money?
    Raise taxes?
    Further nationalize the auto industry?
    Further nationalize the banking/financial industries?


    He made an interception and ran the wrong direction.

    Thank you

    It's not about me. I have a secured and tangible financial future that I am not worried about. I am fine, and my family will be fine because of me.

    My concern is with others, yes, I know that concept escapes a conservative obviously.

    The fact is many conservatives seem concerned with "How do I get mine" and **** other Americans.

    And tell me how someone that decides to work for $1 an hour survives?
