Hi Governor Ventura,
Congratulations on winning the lawsuit, I can't imagine what you've gone through with that and I've supported you the whole way.
Outsourcing - My job of 30+ years was replaced by a voice recognition computer program (!), AKA 'technological unemployment' but the way I look at
it, people globally have a right to a living wage and everyone's time is just as valuable. Just because someone is born in an overpopulated poverty
stricken part of the world, doesn't mean they should have to work for a few dollars a month for their entire lives, and Americans aren't
automatically worth tens of thousands a year, either. We need to rethink capitalism from the git-go in other words, and I advocate the Zeitgeist
Movement's take on things - resource based and caretaking of the planet AND the people, not profit based without a thought as to the ramifications of
endless consumption. The outsourcing companies are probably doing what they have to, to stay competitive which means simply open for business at this
point in time. The odds are against any given company, especially the small ones that can't bribe Congress or be in cahoots with the Pentagon.
As far as fear mongering goes, the CDC and other health professionals have been waking up in cold sweats for years worrying about another pandemic;
while they pretty much figured it would be H5N1, this Ebola outbreak is a nightmare having a nightmare; I don't think they're fear mongering enough,
I think they should have shut down global transportation especially passenger plane flights several weeks ago. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
are out of the barn, at this point. It still remains to be seen if infection rates will go exponential, and we may never know if it was weaponized,
but containment at this point is far from an assured condition.
After working all those years in hospitals, believe me when I tell you that only three days after (possible) Ebola cases are seen in any given
hospital, whether rural or city, the personnel and supplies will be completely overwhelmed. Just the hypochondriacs alone presenting with vague
symptoms will be a mess to sort out and I'm sure that's already starting to happen.
