Check out China's Three Gorges Dam and Valley.

Even Harley Davidson licensed China's largest manufacturer there to build the American Legend. You see, China will allow anyone to come in and test their market, but, they will not allow anyone to import goods to be sold there.

Try their market, build them there or leave.

All the large manufacturers are there, getting free electricity, no OSHA, no EPA, virtual slave labor etc........

None of the DC crew will do crap to make non-government jobs (yes Obama's work thing was exactly that, welfare and not related to production of durable or consumer goods) for Americans because they all are getting fat getting kickbacks from foreign nationals while their conveniently invested money in those companies reaps huge dividends.

No foreign entities or workers should ever be awarded any government contracts nor should our government, or even people, buy things not made in America, which would nearly end consumerism here.

What would happen net, the idle factories and unemployed would crank back up production.

Has anyone caught the Obama controlled news lately?

Unemployment is said to be at 8%. This is a blatant lie.

"If China," says Mr. Stapleton, M.P., to his constituents, "should become a great manufacturing country, I do not see how the manufacturing population of Europe could sustain the contest without descending to the level of their competitors." (Times, Sept. 3, 1873, p. 8.).

Ford small cars and commercials are all Mazdas. Have been for over a decade now.

Similar story with GM and Nissan.

ford parts are interchangeable that was the origonal success of the company in producing an affordable automobile in the 1908

This fucking sucks but not totally unexpected. The more regulation and taxes on Corps and the Auto industry will further drive jobs off shore. But you can't tell Leftists and Progs that.

Look people, this has been going on for more than 30 years....... even our own military has been contracting out for equipment made in Asia and even rebadged it with American Company names... and the badges even say made in the U. S. A.

I have some purchased from Robbins AFB and it is certainly made in Taiwan yet claims to be of United States origin.

Cost of one particular machine to the citizens? 50,000 in 1977. The real McCoy's 1977 cost? 12,000. The actual cost of this machine as it left Asia? $2400.

And whats wrong in that?

Everything is wrong with it.

Nothing at all is wrong with jobs getting shipped to cheaper countries. With all the talk of world peace and global fight against greed, it is OWS that is greedy. Say, Ford did not outsource, we will have our jobs back but some guy in China or India would lose his job and livelihood. Is that fine with you? How does that fit in with your 'no greed' slogan? You are selfish and simply worried about your own uncompetitive job and unsustainable salary. Don't even pretend to be bothered about others. You are not. You are as greedy, probably more, than any Wall Street trader.

And not just that, even if Ford manfuactured wholly in America, the cost would be so high that exports would not be competitive and Japanese and European cars would take over the whole global market. Of course Ford might still be able to sell in America provided the government bans the sale of cheaper and better Japanese and European cars.

Yes it is fine with me, fawk china and you too.

[-] -3 points by smartcapitalist (143) 2 years ago

it should be. After all you guys are hypocrites.

[-] 2 points by FrogWithWings (1367) 2 years ago

Fawk China and the multi-nationalists who outsource jobs from MY United States of America. I don't give a damn about ANY other country, and for sure not while MINE is going down the shitter. Carry your commie ass to China and stay there, suits me just fine.

[-] 0 points by smartcapitalist (143) 2 years ago

That's the whole point. You don't give a damn about anyone else but you sure want the rich to not just give a damn about you but also share their wealth with you. Now that's being a commie. I am all for free trade and getting the best possible products at the lowest possible price.

Communism all suits the losers just fine. After all, it means you get to have my dollar for your dime.

[-] 2 points by FrogWithWings (1367) 2 years ago

You are the commie, outsourcing production has played a large part in the destruction of the economy of The United States of America. All patriots and people with common sense know how it's worked.

You read it's all about ME, WRONG! It's about my nation and it comes first over any others. Too bad there are many like you don't see it the same way and further the cause of wealth concentration this way.

[-] 1 points by vats (107) 2 years ago

you are right, out sourcing sucks, what is the point in out sourcing, when leads to economy collapsing and loss of american jobs. we do not want to out source and globalaize just because it sounds fancy

[-] 1 points by FrogWithWings (1367) 2 years ago

Cheers and have a great week.

[-] 0 points by smartcapitalist (143) 2 years ago

haha. You are contradicting yourself. You call me a commie and then accuse me of supporting wealth concentration. Funny. But then OWS hippies never had much brains.

And surely if you understood an iota of economics, you will realize that outsourcing has helped the economy not destroyed it. Why don't you cite a single academic research paper that argues your case? Just one.

And if you are talking about the entire nation, then you should be supporting outsourcing all the more. Outsourcing enables our firms to stay competitive with Asian firms and ensure that they dont go bankrupt.

A patriot like yourself should really put the country's interest over and above your own greed. Don't you think so Comrade?

[-] 1 points by FrogWithWings (1367) 2 years ago

Yep, those who outsource taking advantage of slave labor abroad and then prey of hypnotized consumers in the US, who have no jobs as a result but still have to buy some things, are wealth concentrators.

Fawk you, you're an idiot that is too blind to see this is exactly how the Walden family became the wealthiest on the planet and how three heirs alone OWN 35% of all wealth in the United States.

I'd love for your to find the nads to step up and ever speak to me in person that way. It wouldn't work out well for you.

[-] 0 points by smartcapitalist (143) 2 years ago

It's not slave labor. You don't have to pay a chinese factory worker the same wage because the wages in the country aren't that high. Similarly, an Indian IT worker lives happily on a monthly salary of $1000 which would never be adequate for an American.

What Walmart does is good business. They have world class logistics and they are able to make profits on ever shrinking margins. You should learn from them.

It looks like you are delusional about not just your intellectual capability but your physical capability as well. If you are that strong, join the army instead of squatting jobless in a park.

[-] 1 points by FrogWithWings (1367) 2 years ago

You are a moron. I produce durable goods for Americans and by Americans. I have multiple paid for roofs over my head and paid for them without ever being a Wall Street gambling addict.

You tell Walmart employees, with an average wage of 8.91/hour and the majority having no benefits, while their CEO makes 10,000/hour and owns the world, what a great company they are.

In the mean time, maybe more people like you will pass away with eye cancer.

[-] 0 points by smartcapitalist (143) 2 years ago

I am sure manning the aisles in a Walmart store is such a complex task that the employees should get $100 an hour. And the CEO makes around $4000 an hour. You know why? Because he runs the whole friggin company and not just an aisle. if the wages are so bad and these employees feel they deserve more, they can simply leave the company. Nothing is stopping them from doing that. Besides, the workers can form a union and demand better wages. Why don't they do that? And guess what Walmart's wages are better than wages of unionized labor.

[-] 1 points by FrogWithWings (1367) 2 years ago

Nope, the CEO makes 8990/hour, close enough to 10g's compared to over 90% that Walmart employs, including all their outsourced jobs, that do not make a living wage.

Add colon cancer to your eye cancer and hurry up. You are a maggot and vermin.
