He really is an idiot. I mean, there is calling someone an idiot. Showing them that they are an idiot. But, he has truly become the idiot.

Fool me once = 2008

Fool me twice = 2012

Why did they give us a choice between Obama and Romney? How sad American politics.

I hope no one is getting their hopes up for 2016. It ain't gonna get any better.

If they aren't completely anti establishment in assuming they are a puppet.

You have to pretty much buck the system to bring America where it should be.

Wages and incomes aren't going up because there is no demand for labor. There are more workers than there are available jobs, the employers know this, so why raise wages? They don't have to. They have you by the short hairs. If you complain or quit because you don't make enough, they can very, very easily replace you right now.

This WILL NOT change until the economy returns to a place where there are more available jobs than there are workers to fill them.

And THAT doesn't happen until there is enough demand for what companies produce to create the excess production to justify hiring more labor - OR - until business conditions in the US stabilize to the point where businesses can once again begin to plan long-term for their future because contrary to what most people seem to understand, creating a position and hiring to fill it IS a long-term investment on the part of any business.

Vote for the guy that says this:

"Any *American* corporation shipping jobs overseas faces 90% taxation. Period."

"Any *American* corporation re-locating overseas may not do business in American dollars or with America ever again."

"Any *American* corporation involving itself in politics (anywhere) faces 90% taxation."

"Any *American* corporation with a role in the Military Industrial Complex faces 90% taxation."

And follows up with: "That's just for starters ... Don't piss me off!!"

I'd register to vote to vote for that person.

And because the world market is much bigger than the American one ... all the companies do what many Americans do when living conditions in a place become unbearable - they simply move and cease to become *American.*


And then, there are NO jobs for American workers unless you are valuable enough to the company that they decide to take you with when they pick up and go, and there aren't very many of us that fit that description. Most of us ARE replaceable.

It might be like that for a minute or two. And yeah ... some Americans might even divest themselves. But, businesses would take hold and companies (that are worthwhile) would grow strong. It happens all over the place when there is a void that needs to be filled.

Personal: I find your response fascinating, BTW. It's one of the first times I'm not at least 99% in agreement with what you posted. Ketsuko ... a corporatist ... i'daNeverthunkit -grin- Maybe I need to reassess my thought processes. -blush-
