Need A Job? Too Bad! The Good Jobs Are Being Shipped Out Of America As Part Of The New One World Economy
Quote from article:
"All over the United States factories are closing down. If you go to shopping centers in many areas of America you would think that the hottest new store was called "Space Available".
Since the year 2000, we have lost 10% of our middle class jobs. In the year 2000 there were about 72 million middle class jobs in the United States but today there are only about 65 million middle class jobs.
What kind of progress is that?

One out of every six Americans is now enrolled in a federal anti-poverty program. As 2007 began, 26 million Americans were on food stamps, but now 42 million Americans are on food stamps and that number keeps rising every single month.
Can anyone out there please explain how the "one world economy" is supposed to be good for us when 42 million Americans cannot even feed themselves?
Allowing our country to be deindustrialized just so that we can consume more cheap goods from China is like tearing down pieces of your house to keep your fire going. In the end, you won't have much of a house left.

*The United States has lost a staggering 32 percent of its manufacturing jobs since the year 2000.

*Since 2001, over 42,000 U.S. factories have closed down for good.

*As of the end of 2009, less than 12 million Americans worked in manufacturing. The last time that less than 12 million Americans were employed in manufacturing was in 1941.

*Manufacturing employment in the U.S. computer industry is actually lower in 2010 than it was in 1975.

*In 2010, the number one U.S. export to China is "scrap and trash".
Oh, but won't "getting more education" solve all of our problems and get the American people back to work?
The truth is that tens of millions of Americans have a "higher education" that is not doing them any good today.
In his article entitled "The Great College-Degree Scam", Richard Vedder explains that a large percentage of U.S. college graduates are working in jobs that have not historically required college degrees....
Later on in his article, Vedder notes that the number of college graduates that are waiting tables or that are working as cashiers is absolutely exploding....
Have the Bush tax cuts helped the economy? Will the new extension of the Bush tax cuts help create new jobs? I think this article answers these questions.
Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur and businessman Ross Perot warned us back in 1993 what was about to happen with these free trade agreements. Well folks the future is here!

Since the dimocrats have controlled the White House and Congress the last two years, I'd say they've done a stellar job at stopping it! Talk about a do-nothing bunch of bums!

Watch bitchboy back-peddle on this. He's done it before. Some lame crap like 'Well I didn't like Clinton either' or 'but Republicans were in Congress too' when the facts say, Democrat hero Bubba Clinton appointed a lobbiying team to pressure Congress into sucking up to China.

"The agreement would provide the United States with better access to China's market while China would gain no new access to U.S. markets,..." (access to China's market? Who in China makes enough money to afford overpriced American Union made products?)

"WASHINGTON (CNN) -- China should be allowed to join the World Trade Organization because "this agreement is a good deal for America," President Bill Clinton said in a statement Monday.

Naming a White House lobbying team to spearhead the effort, the president also called on Congress to schedule a vote on China's entry to the world trade body at "the earliest possible time." The United States and China reached agreement last November on terms for China to enter the WTO."

Somehow, you think this is an "answer"?
No wonder you drooling morons elected an empty suit, dumbo eared socialist.

According to you, it's OK that Clinton was a whore for the Chinese and lobbied Congress in January of 2000 because 8 years later, Ron Paul said something on TV during his campaign for President?

And you wonder why everyone makes fun of you?

For TWO years the goddamn dimocratz could have stopped outsourcing, as the White House and Congress had total control. But they never did a single USEFUL thing-nada, zippo! All they did was bitch, and line their pockets.

Ron Paul is a pretty smart guy. I don't see you point for posting his video, though.

Republican Ron Paul stands alone in opposing unregulated Free Trade. Most Republicans have waved this Free Trade flag for the last thirty years. Their corporate buddies/sponsors have made a fortune exporting American Middle Class jobs to India and China. Just like the housing fiasco they leveraged the job market too far by making Americans compete with third world economies. Now we have 47% of the population not paying federal income tax because their service economy job pays to little.

Save the economy by keeping jobs at home

Quote from article:
When Obama sits down with the CEOs, he doubtless will extol a series of recent policy moves - the tax deal, the free-trade agreement with South Korea - that business largely welcomes. He then will urge his guests to create some jobs here in the United States. American corporations, according to the Federal Reserve, are sitting on roughly $1.9 trillion in cash at a time when private-sector hiring is stuck at microscopic levels (50,000 net jobs created last month). Small business, dependent as it is on depressed domestic consumption, lacks the funds or incentives to resume hiring. Big businesses, by contrast, are rolling in dough and registering record profits. One reason for their success is they're selling abroad - the most recent survey of the Standard & Poor's index of our largest 500 publicly traded corporations shows that roughly 47 percent of their revenue comes from outside the country.

With the Chinese, Brazilian and Indian markets growing at a ferocious pace, corporations are far less dependent on the still-anemic American consumer than are small businesses.

The explosive growth of new markets has been a boon to advanced economies that still make products for export - Germany's in particular. But here, our chief export has been the jobs and factories that once turned out products for export. Defenders of corporate offshoring assert that we can't compete with low-cost labor in China and other developing countries. Clearly, though, Germany has shown that you can retain a manufacturing sector by producing products of high added value even when labor costs are correspondingly high. Hourly manufacturing compensation (wages plus benefits) was $48 in Germany in 2008 - the most recent year surveyed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics - while it was $32 in the United States. Yet Germany is an export giant, while we are the colossus of imports

Since Democrats want to keep those "phone solicitor" and "1st level tech" (script monkey) jobs in America, it is only fair that we send the foreign jobs in America back to their own countries..

Start by closing the Honda plant in Marysville, OH.

Then close the BMW plant in Georgia.

Then close the Toyota plant in Kentucky.

Close the Sony plant in Pittsburgh.

Shut down those Fiat/Jeep plants in Detroit, Toledo, Fremont CA, Spartanburg, and Tuscaloosa!
