I assure you with 1.3 billion people china does not need to imprison anybody to work, they are more than willing to work in these factories. Its hard for americans to understand but if you are used to 2 bowls of rice in a one room shack with your whole family in rural china, the lore of a paying job in a real city is amazing.

Right. That's why they built these...


Unpleasant sight: Nets to prevent workers from jumping to their deaths are pictured outside one of the Foxconn factory buildings in the township of Longhua, in southern Guangdong province


reminded me of this net

Go look at the tags on the clothes you wear, your appliances, the chips in the computers you are typing on right now.

Throw them all away, right now, if you feel as strongly as you seem to on this thread.


Yep you hit that nail on the head. It is so easy for some people to scream and yell about the evil corporations running in other countries, when they are the very ones who support legislation which forces business overseas. Why isn't anyone here complaining that we are losing jobs here in the States?

Oops, spoke too soon before reading the last pages of the thread...

One more point I'd like to make is that world socialists typically use the plight of others in their fight to bring socialist programs.

That says hes selling the US to China. He is sharing the US jobs With China. Taking away from the US and giving to China.


Thay may be true. The globalists have no sense of loyalty or national sovereignty.

I don't see anything wrong there. Romney is a true capitalist. That is what capitalism is all about, finding the cheapest labor, and lowest cost for inputs, while charging the highest price you can for your product or service.

In the capitalist doctrine profit is king, and the seeking to maximize profit, automatically allocates resources to the highest benefits and best use possible.

So, from that video, we see Romney is a good capitalist, and lousy socialist. A good socialist would "share" the wealth, and pay the girls more, so that they could share in the higher standard of living the bosses enjoy. But that would not be the best allocation of the wealth, according to the capitalist doctrine. That would be squandering the resources, and reducing incentive, because the girls are then not motivated to work harder to get out of that poor paying position and into management instead, etc..

“Due to the global economy, it's cheaper to source may products from China, and... grow the company and provide more jobs.”
Zarniwoop

You use nice words like “competition”. However, what you are advocating is that if we all made slave wages both China and the U.S will create more jobs. Basically, its divide and conquer. Split the world’s producers ( workers, both creative and manual) , have them “compete” against each other ( by asking for less wages) and let those that bet ( Wall Street etc) on their productivity have all the profits.
Now, I am not saying “workers of the world unite” or anything like that. All I am advocating is a return to the Capitalism of the 50s and 60s before NAFTA and deregulation ( of Wall Street etc) caused our current depression.
Romney represents the new Capitalism. Obama the old (en.wikipedia.org... etc ). Obviously, Obama is also a puppet of Wall Street. However, he is obviously the lesser of two evils.




“If you look at the salaries of corporate big-wigs... yes, they are huge compared to the average Joe. But if you compare those with the company's revenues, profits, and overall employee salary base, they are like ice cubes in the Arctic Ocean. Let them have their shiny toys and move on.”
Zarniwoop
Nope. CEO compensation has skyrocketed even for those companies that fail. Enormous wealth is now being produced by raiding employee pension funds etc.
www.aflcio.org...
I suppose that you will claim that those top 400 individuals did more work or were more innovative then half of all Americans combined.
www.politifact.com...
Lets do the math! The U.S population is 311,591,917 divide that by 400= 778979, divide that by 2 ( half) = 389489. So you are saying that one ( yes one individual) in that group of 400 contributes 389,489 times more to the wealth of our country then the average citizen!!!!!!

It is so easy for Corporatist conservatives to yell and scream about big government,
while they side with the corporations that endlessly grow government and seek pro industry
regulation.

The plan you are advocating (deregulation of Wall Street, less taxes for the speculators etc) was tried under Bush and caused our current mess. I seriously doubt more of the same will help.

I will assume you are not referring to my post because if you are your response makes no sense.

That sounds like the pure genius he is suggesting!

Yet he is against the "Elites"


He is in fact; extremely contrary, confused and illogical

Romney is the new style Capitalist. He doesn’t create anything of value. And lives off of welfare ( for the rich)
www.youtube.com...
If Romney ever became CEO of where you work, you will lose your benefits and/or be laid off. If you think that will help our economy, sure vote for Romney!
If he gets elected president he will take that same philosophy that made him millions and make it national policy.
It hardly takes a genius to make a profit by reducing wages/benefits if you are rich and powerful.Heck! Even a alcoholic homeless person could make huge profits if you gave him the power All it takes is an indifference to the plight of the average American..

I see where you are coming from on this...

Business men create opportunities for others. It's how the whole wheel goes around. However, I offer this man and others like him are not business men. Their objective is to negate the opportunities for others. Negate the wealth creating benefit for anyone but themselves. If those folks in China died weekly and were replace for cents on the dollar, so what? What are they to him?

I cannot prove it but it almost seems that species of wealth/power seeker sees someone else getting ahead as a bad thing. Possible competition. A dime going somewhere else besides their pocket. Can't have that.

Regardless of whatever "-ism" you call it, the results are always the same. There's always a small group of people at the top eating the best foods, while the masses swim in the dirt at the bottom with the scraps.
