How long ’til Mickey Mouse runs against Ronald McDonald?
I’m not jealous and not obsessing – just amazed at how greed has taken over this country and compassion has been thrown out the window. Forgive me for caring.
How does it affect anyone here if a CEO makes $2 million or $200 million a year? Nothing more than sour grapes and jealousy
Plain and simple: It is greed, one of the seven deadly sins. Money is every bit an addiction as cocaine and heroin. People used to know how much was “enough”; not anymore. With millions out of work; unless one lacks a conscience; one can see the problem here.
All those jobs lost in manufacturing are being made up in the docks in the coastal cities as well as the growing number of importer jobs. The industries in which those jobs operate change, the number of jobs doesn’t. That doesn’t even take into account the items we manufacturer or services in the U.S. that are purchased by those overseas
So, all this talk of reshoring manufacturing jobs is a waste, because, according to you, there no need to bring them back, those guys already found jobs..?
Show me your stats on this burgeoning dockworker trade you speak of.
Job losses, due to globalization, is no myth, especially in manufacturing. Those losses have not been made up in other sectors of the economy. Your key phrase is: “over an extended period of time”. Many things can be smoothed out and made to look nice when viewed “over an extended period of time.”

Foreign or domestic – it’s just wrong. I am beyond embarrassed to admit that John Roberts went to my High School (ducks under desk)

The problem with the Mr. Munro’s of the world is their opinions are not based on facts, and therefore, facts will not sway them. Facts are batted away like fruit flies.

I think you are onto something with that last sentence. I would love to see a world map pointing out how far reaching and saturating our DOD footprint is. Military bases, weapons plants, etc, both here and abroad…I think it would scare the you-know-what out of every American.
