Keep your eye on Waukesha, Wisconsin...... Their biggest employer just moved out. Thanks Jeff, you're a "real" American....give Barrack our Best !!

General Electric is planning to move its 115-year-old X-ray division from Waukesha, Wis., to Beijing, China. In addition to moving the headquarters, the company will invest $2 billion in China and train more than 65 engineers and create six research centers. This is the same GE that made $5.1 billion in the United States last year but paid no taxes-the same company that employs more people overseas than it does in the United States. So let's get this straight. Obama appointed GE Chairman Jeff Immelt to head his commission on job creation (job czar). Immelt is supposed to help create jobs. I guess Obama forgot to tell him in which country he was supposed to be creating those jobs.

I keep saying.. Occupy DC.. thats where all the laws are made that enable companies like GE to close up shop and head out.

When folks start protesting/boycotting the companies and the law makers who allow this , then maybe, hopefully some change will come about. Until then, its going to be business as usual.

For the record, Ive been boycotting GE products for over 30 yrs, due to the polluting of the Hudson River with pcb's from thier plants upstream. As a contractor , I refuse to allow any GE products to be used on any project and when a salesrep contacts me, I tell them why.

its called the end of the united states of America, destroyed from the inside by traitors like Immelt and Obama for their profit.

why not ship it to china from the us? especially when the administration gives them tax exemptions?

it is called outsourcing, and is one of the reasons for high us unemployment

Hey, I am against outsourcing. GE has been in China since 1906 and they have over 50 legal entities there as joint ventures.

wow.....

The writing is on the wall: Middle class America is slated to be systematically destroyed .

Maybe now you will wake up.

The answer to the destruction of the middle class in America is revolutionary and extremely intelligent. Now that you see what is going to happen: the way to fight the centralization of wealth and power into the top1%... thus impoverishing 99% is to opt OUT of the entire system. The entire system is rigged against you. The entire system is a ponzi scheme. The entire system is a Pyramid scheme designed to make the top 1& richer and sucking all the money, jobs and wealth out of the 99%.

By creating NEW self-sufficient egalitarian communities based upon intelligent cooperation: small groups of people who do not use money and do not try to make a profit. People who get together as equals and live as a small community of 12, 24, or 36... You can solve all of your worries and woes and problems.

This means you must opt OUT of your present consumer salve class of a wage-slave working for people who get rich off you. This means you must stop buying from the consumer stores you have been suckered into using. This means you must make your community as self-sufficient as possible. This means you must create a counter-culture to mass production, mass consumption and mass slavery.

Only when you opt out of the global; capitalist system which is enslaving you and brainwashing you: only then will your problems and worries be solved.

If you are not intelligent enough to understand that the only answer to the centralization of all MONEY and power in this corrupt system of capitalist worship of the dollar is to de-centralize yourselves and live independent of that system that is trying and succeeding in robbing you of your jobs, your security, your money, your happiness.

The CULTURE of money: creates alienated isolated people who are afraid everyone is trying to rob them of their money.

If you create a small community where nobody uses money: then you can learn how to TRUST the people you live with: because none of you are using money and none of you are trying to make a profit off the others.

Only by rejecting and throwing out the ENTIRE culture of greed, selfishness, profit, buying, selling, consumption, business, stores, buyers, sellers; fear, paranoia, isolation antisocial isolation, the worship of material goods, houses, cars, gadgets... Only by throwing OUT the entire culture of mass entertainment, mass TV, mass internet. specatorship. Only by throwing out the entire lifestyle of living as a mass sheep, a conformist lemming, and CREATING a new culture and way of life that is the direct OPPOSITE of how you are living now: only then will you succeed in solving your own personal problems. Only by not trying to change how 311 million other American live, only by NOT protesting, only by NOT trying to fight against a system that cannot be fixed. Will you fix your own personal life problems.

IF you cannot solve your own personal problems: you ahev no right to expect anyone else to listen to you elling them how to change their way of life. Only if you change how YOU Live... and in doing so... SOLVE all the problems you now have....

Only THEN... as a 'fait-accompli'... as an accomplished SUCCESS. Only AFTER you have successfully opted out of the entire consumer wage/slave culture and created your own SUCCESSFUL self-sufficient community which does not need to worry about how the top 1% are robbing everyone else of their money, because your successful self-sufficient community doesn't even USE money to be successful...

Only then can you give to the world your living example of how to fix the problems of the world.

FURTHERMORE: Even after you have successfully become self-sufficient as a SMALL community, and have learned how to cooperate with other small independent self-sufficient communities which do not use money...

If nobody in the rest of the world is interested in your success story and prefers to keep on shopping at WalMArt and paying taxes and using money and working for bosses who wuill fire them and do business with banks that are systematically taking way your homes from you... you have no right to force your successful NEW way of life upon anyone else.

Let them all be screwed by the system they live in. They have all chosen selfishness, greed, consumption and wage slavery as their way of life.

You will be fine. Your self-sufficient community will have its own way of life and it will not buy from any capitalist for-profit business. IN fact... none of you will be trying to make a profit off ANYONE. All of you will be happy for the simple reason that none of your lives will be based upon:

MONEY. GREED SELFISHNESS PROFIT

This means there is NO:

work, bills to be paid, taxes to pay, things to buy, things to sell, mass media,
sitting on your ass all day staring at a flat screen

Instead, you will only have people voluntarily helping each other out of the goodness of their hearts, and having FUN enjoying their lives. This means if the rest of the capitalist world goes into a downward spiral and destroys itself: you small community will be UNAFFECTED by all of the catastrophes. because your quality of life will not depend on anyone outside your self-sufficient community.
