I'll be the first to admit that things are screwed up. ButI seethe lefts approach to a solution as being worse than the initial problem.
Government, more government, bigger government is NOT the solution. Government was part of the initial problem!!!
I know this seems overly simplified, but think about it for one minute.
1. $4.00 per gallon gasoline is the worst thing that could have ever happened to American industry and has caused massive around the board
2. The housing mess targeted the dollar. When the federal reserve deposits money in a bank the bank can loan up to ten times that amount. This is what
gives the dollar it value, the ability of Americans to pay their debts. When you give loans to any and all you invite disaster.
3. The Bush era tax breaks created the largest spending deficits in the history of the United states. Setting a tone of doom and gloom etc..
4. The Federal reserve keeps printing more and more currency.
All of this accomplishes one thing! A weekend dollar which can better compete with the Chinese Yuen. All of this was-is and engineered affair! It is
evident in the fact that they expect us to rebel or something! Why else would they want to take our liberties and spy on every move we make?
I am afraid that in a situation like this we must demand that the Government prop up our living standards and they should be made to feel the pains
they have placed on us all! Else we are headed the way of Chinese slave labor! Those who profit from these policies should be made to pay!
I dont want to see Industry come to our shores! I want to see Industry grow within our borders. Like I stated above. If you wanted to restore American
industry you would not worry about cheap labor you would implement quality standards, to require that all products come with a mandatory 1-2 year
warranty. That cheap Chinese crap would not be able to compete and the loss Wal-Mart et all encounters would see American quality put the cheap
imports where they belong. In the trash!
Beezzer I have a friend that lives in Shenzhen. He has told me that in China all products come with mandatory one year warranty. He once sent me some
cameras stating how low quality they were. They were higher quality than any I have seen here! These laws do not apply to exports and so we get the
cheapest products on the planet because our country men choose to pawn these items off on us, because this is where the profit is the highest.
Dont take the blame for this! It is not your neighbors who have been forced to take that minimum wage jobs fault. It is not those who have been
forced to apply for food stamps to feed their family. It is the fault of cheat thieves who seek to enslave you and your children!
(This is the truth if you care to see.)
Currency war, also known as competitive devaluation, is a condition in international affairs where countries compete against each other to achieve a
relatively low exchange rate for their own currency. As the price to buy a particular currency falls so too does the real price of exports from the
country. Imports become more expensive too, so domestic industry, and thus employment, receives a boost in demand both at home and abroad. However,
the price increase in imports can harm citizens' purchasing power. The policy can also trigger retaliatory action by other countries which in turn can
lead to a general decline in international trade, harming all countries.
Your dear Bush was a war monger, an idiot and just plain evil!
