How about Cash for Burguas?
Our government is so mentally challenged that they are now in the business of subsidizing foreign car sales. Eight out of 10 cars purchased through the Cash for Clunkers program is from a foreign country.
Government data shows that while 54 percent of the top-10-selling vehicles were manufactured domestically
This whole country has turned into one giant version of a never ending Special Olympics. No offense to the Special Olympics intended.

So we got a bunch of guys $20/jobs.
When you give all your money to someone else its not yours anymore.
How nice that you're flippant about such trivialities ...
I'm sure the "bunch of guys" fell the same way.
But then again it's hard to be ideological when you have a family to feed.
I know you are talking Globalization and Free Trade.... but it hasn't worked out too well so far for America. Our best paying jobs have left for overseas and China makes everything plus it's not really Fair Trade. But hey, at least we have cheap consumer products that don't last!!! I'm so happy I could kick myself.
Cap and Trade will be the final nail in the coffin of American Industry. Even if we end up making new "green" industries....won't they just ship the jobs and technology to where it can be made the cheapest??
