    US manufacturing is on the decline?

    Since when?

    This meeting is nothing more then a ploy for corporate welfare. US exports and manufacturing have been rising for years. We are still the biggest manufacturer in the world.

    The notion that US manufacturing is on the decline holds as much water as Young Earth Creationism.

    Places like California drive businesses out of the State and Country with regulations and Taxes and the Feds do it too.

    It has never made sense to me that any of part that go into any of our Military weapon systems are made any where outside our borders there are thousands & thousands of good jobs that have been lost to other countries for just that.

    We need to insist that this change and soon.

    We have lost much of the steel industry and the scape steel industry and even tooling and those are of the utmost importance in times of National emergency.

    We have idiots in charge and that's on both sides of the isle and it didn't start yesterday it goes back 40 years if goes back a day.

    Saw it in in 1970 when the aircraft Company i was working for whn I was in school moved thousands of jobs to Mexico under the Maciadora program.

    We had a vastly increasing trade deficit before the recession and before the Democrats ever took power.

    This sounds like schlock. They are making the same protectionist argument that freer trade is a national security issue which is as old as WWI.

    “Had the United States not had the capacity to become the 'arsenal of democracy,' the Second World War might well have ended differently."
    The potential problem of a weakening sense of loyalty to this country by the managers of hollowed-out American corporations. This is not hidden. CEOs now regularly acknowledge, even boast, that they are global, not American corporations.
    Essentially they are arguing to make technology and defense more expensive and local, meaning a greater distribution of the communal wealth to defense. That means more of your taxes. DING DING DING. Get it. This is just ideological heart string pulling.

    US corporations only care about their bottom line. They will continue to send our businesses overseas to increase their profit margins when they cannot get enough "welfare" to keep businesses here. They create the problem then blame everyone possible. It's all about the Benjamins.

    Silly people, protectionist countries are more likely to war than countries open to free trade.
    Mutual aid usually prevents all sorts of bad things because 2 countries that normally oppose each other, must work towards a solution without the use of weapons.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Stop confusing people with facts.
    It contradicts their fairytale ideology.
