    Unfortunately alot of jobs have been outsourced. The intention of NAFTA has failed. One of the reasons unemployment is so high is the amount of jobs that have been outsourced. This is the kind of greed that is detremental to our job recovery. Cheaper wages equals more profit.

    No. I'm not going to say anymore on it than that, because anybody who believes otherwise has drunk the Koolaid and its almost certainly impossible to change their minds at this point.

    Redress doesn't.

    Neither does Robert Reich.

    There is no monolithic entity of "The Liberals" nor is there some undisputed individual who speaks for all of them. That was Redress's point.

    Is that what you think? Just dismiss it. I see that a lot here too.

    No, it was not. Redress claimed -- with authority -- that there is no liberal position on wealth.

    Greed is NOT good, it cannot be.
    As man, we are all "greedy" - to a lesser or greater extent..
    Evil ?

    A better word is needed for the motivation to create...

    And the greed of Unions had nothing to do with that outsourcing? It had a lot to do with it. Yes, cheaper wages equals more profit, in some cases outsourcing was the difference between sovlency and bankruptcy. GM and Chrysler both had to be bailed out because they didn't outsource enough and their labor costs were over $90 an hour. Ford got concessions from the Unions, GM and Chrysler didn't until after the government took control. A major portion of GMs debt was due to union contracts at plants it had closed. The government made some cuts that GM had been trying to do for years, but couldn't because it would of mounted up too much debt. With all the talk about outsourcing, which really started back in the 1960s or earlier, it is funny how very few noticed that when the Obama regime had control of these companies, they moved production from right to work states to union states and actually didn't close or move very much that was already outsourced.

    Many Republicans hate the poor and many Democrats hate the rich. There are probably a fair amount of people who hate both.

    Everyone hates the poor. They're smelly and they say strange things. They don't even like each other.



    It is overall the constrant drum beating otherwise that the wealthy are evil and the Democrats are ongoing to punish them.
    What?
