Forum Post: Obama has investments in companies that ship jobs overseas

Obama is pretty slick when he likes to throw blame towards Romney when it comes to outrourcing jobs overseas. Well Obama is just as guilty. Here is a link and it also includes his tax returns listing the companies that he has investments in - including Apple.

Ain't you the guy that posted a thread showing that they almost all do?

Geeze, now you want the guy to be the perfect stock broker too.

That IS the position WallStreet has put us in.

Gee - and I thought Obama was flawless!
thank you for revealing this all important detail!


FYI- owning stock in a company that ships jobs overseas
is not the same as shipping jobs overseas


FYI- so you found something negative in Obama's MANY YEARS of tax returns because he disclosed them
what did you find in willard's MANY YEARS of tax returns?
Did he pay less than 14% ? less than 10% ? less than 5% ?

[-] -3 points by SteveKJR (-497) 2 years ago

So tell me what's the difference - either way money is being used to "pay for labor" in other countries.

[-] 3 points by bensdad (8977) 2 years ago

The same difference as owning BP stock, vs being the BP people who's active negligence crated the spill.
The same difference as owning UPS stock, vs being the UPS driver who ran over grandma.


And Obama DID disclose the (tax) truth - why won/t willard?

Both corporate parties are guility of the same shit, they are funded by the same shit, and they lie about the same shit.

Obama is just a better bullshitter.

Pres Obama is a badass muthafucker for the people and against the republican 1% plutocrats.

And you can't stand it.

I worked on his campaign. He is not a badass. He has not done a single thing we campaigned for, many times doing the opposite.

[-] 3 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

ACA, ending iraq war, fin reform, expanding pell, taking student loans from banks, cuting middle class. small business tax. lily ledbeter act, don't ask don't tell. raised autofuel limits, epa carbon regulations. recovered the economy from republican great recession

And much much more.

What are you talkin about? He's done all this and more in the face of your republicans obstruction.

Your just an anti dem/Obama partisan republican right?

Ok, seems how you get your news from the TV at face value, lets go through your list. Ive got some time to kill waiting for the girlfriend.

ACA- total joke. If Bush made us purchase ins from corrupted companies we would be rioting in the street.

Ending the war with US troops and installing 20k mercenaries is a far cry from what he promised. But I guess when you double troops in Afghan, you have to do something. Again, not what we campaigned for. -10

School costs are going up 15-20% per year. Nothing has been done to the root problem. 0

Cutting small business taxes- yes, he continued the bush cuts. Not what we worked for. 0

Lily- a nice piece of legislation. Nothing serious though. Certainly not anything to brag about. 2 out of 10.

Dont ask- Again, sold us out. We worked for federal gay marriage. Didnt get it, Wont get it, wont even try. I guess when our expectations are so low, we can give this a 6 out of 10.

Raised autofuel limits- I havent noticed anything different. Maybe you have. 0

EPA carbon regs- I havent seen any sweeping legislation on this. 2 out of 10.

Recovered the economy- just printed money. ZERO BANKERS IN JAIL. This last one was the most telling. Also the key to him getting re elected. -10

I hate Republicans. And I really loathe people who sell out their values in the name of their party.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

I get most of my news from internet independent news sources.

ACA- excellent progress. great accomplishment. next step public option, putting private health insurance out of business.

Iraq. War ended. troops stationed. normal course of business. We should (and dems will) cut troops in Korea, Japan, europe, middle east. Mercs? Pres Obama cut them down, and will cut further. (repubs never would)

Afghan- Almost done, next year. be patient no big deal.

College costs, started a policy of giving fed money to schools who keep costs lowest or cut costs. A 1st step.

Taxes- continued Bushs but added more in Stimulus and other policies.

Lily- excellent despite your dismissal. Your repubs voted against and would never push it.

Don't ask Don't tell- Done. what sell out?. He has stated his personal view on gay marriage which allowed dems to put it in the platform. your repubs would never do that.

Fuel standards- Of course I've notice big car sales have fallen, Hummers discontinued. small cars have increased, all cars more fuel efficient. We have cut our pollution as a result by millions of tons per year.

Epa- repubs and industry are squealin like stuck pigs over this, it must be a good thing.

Recovery- recovery is recovery. Your repubs created great depression like situation. Pres Obama has pulled us back. The recovery would have been much stronger (in fact all these issues would have been better) if not for your traitorous republican obstruction.

"you hate republicans" I disagree. You are more likely a partisan republican because you are only ever unfairly attacking Pres Obama.

We disagree.

Give it up.

"Afghan- Almost done, next year. be patient no big deal."

lol, don't forget this is an election year, that will change after November.

How will it change?

Its been what 11 years and still going? Obama isn't going to end it, and neither is Romney... its like the Energizer bunny of battlefields.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

I think we are pretty much done over there. Best thing we can do is stop burning fossil fuels & sending our money over there.

Greentech now!

ACA- strenghtened Ins companies. We are probably going to see most of Europe go to this corporation friendly model soon. total sell out. If you cant see this, you are doomed. 0

Dems have started plenty of wars. I will find you links to hiring of mercs. Its up. WAY UP. Bombed 6 nations in 3 years. Thats not progress. 0

Afghan- signed on for a while. Massive troop increase. HUGE DEAL: (I forgot you dont support the troops). -10

School costs- nothing. 0

Taxes- key word being extended Bush. Total betrayal. -10

Lily- ya, its good. Its nothing major. 2 maybe a 3 out of 10.

Gay marriage- show me a bill HE creates on it. total sell out. 0

Your views on his gay marriage stance and your "no big deal" on Afghan prove yyou are much more conservative than I am.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

ACA- means the end of private health insurance, VT, MT already working on it. Ins co and their repub puppets know it and are squealing like stuck pigs.

Military- Dems have showed the repubs and the world the proper, responsible way to wield the most powerful military in the world we've gone from millions of bombs and a millions killed, to thousands of bombs and hundreds killed. Afghan almost done. next year. be patient

Taxes. repubs forced the wealthy extensions. Not this time.

Anything else.?

[Removed]

[-] -2 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

ACA- health ins stocks WAY up since 4/09. Thats all you need to know. And they are still campaign bribing Dems. Where you been? Dreaming? Living in your right wing dream land of forcing us to buy from corporations. Do us a favor, stay there.

Military- bombing 6 nations in four years is disgusting. Go listen to some real liberals on this. Your conservative views are sickening to me.

TAxes- still playing the blame game? Typical. Glad I dont have to work next to you.

Have fun with your anti-gay, pro war stance. The rest of us want change.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

ACA- Will mean the end of private insurance. They know it, repubs know it. I know it, dems know it. It seems only the smartest guy in the room is in the dark.

Military- 6 countries. LMFAO. I measure human life. We've gone from millions of bombs, and million killed, to thousands of bombs and hundreds killed. That is real progress. We must support progress and agitate for an end to the bombing.

Taxes- American politics brother. Repubs forced the 1% tax extension last time and are trying again. This this time they cannot win.

I am anti war, and pro LGBT.

[-] -2 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

ACA- forced corporatism. Its the exact opposite direction. How you cannot see this is beyond me.

Glad to see you think bombing 6 nations is funny.

Repubs didnt force anything. He didnt have to sign it. The people didnt want it. Wake the fuck up.

You are obviously pro war and happy with no gay marriage.

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

ACA- It may be beyond you but eventually it will happen and then you will understand.

Bombing- not funny, your dishonest focus on the # of countries at the expense of what really matters (# of people) betrays your obvious partisanship because you grasp onto number of countries because that is greater than Bushs. Your obvious dishonest partisanship is what is funny.

Taxes- repubs did force it. Your denial also betrays your anti dem partisanship.

[-] -1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

ACA- taking a step in the opposite direction is not a good move.

Bombing- you support war in general, and have already stated on here that you dont care bout loss of lives. You are pro war then. Deal with it.

Taxes- obama already asked for an extension on it, and you support that, so I guess you are conservative in your tax views as well.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Your grasping.

ACA- Huge step forward. Priv Insu will be out of business. How soon depends on electing progressive and voting out anti public option republicans

Bombing- I am anti drone bombing. anti war. You're just lying now

taxes- I do not support his extension. Never said that. More lies. I support 90% taxrate on income of a million dollars and cutting taxes/debt on working/middle class.

[-] 0 points by flip (7098) 2 years ago

youu do know that the stock of the health ins companies went up after the surpreme court decision - "I largely expected this outcome. I won’t comment on the wis­dom of the law, but in the wake of the ruling the health care sector has been the top performer.

Health care providers and insurers anticipate about 35 million new cus­tomers and billions of dollars in ad­ditional spending, when the law’s re­quirement for every American to carry insurance or pay a penalty comes into effect by 2014.

Well, Im heading out....

Try not to force us to buy anything from anymore corporations while Im out. and DEFINTELY dont bomb anyone while Im out either. I dont want to be a collateral death from your reckless policies.

Im pretty sure he wont extend the Bush cuts for you and your investment./rental income for a while, so we should be good with that.

Im might even go hang out in a gay club, Ill tell them you dont support their right to marriage either.

Good night right wing troll. Have fun with your establishment loving friends.
