So many I can’t list in this little box that no one will probably read anyway.
People are in business to make money and labor has always been the problem. It started back when the South had slaves and we know how that turned out. We can thank the last 30 years of profit to the Mexican workers which worked hard for much less than the Union Worker.
Middle class jobs, where did they go? Overseas, why? Because to compete in the global economy which Bill Clinton so happily kicked off, American companies have to have cheap labor like their competitors. In the US they were paying laborers to much because of Unions. Manufacturers closed down because they could get the same part from China for half what it costs them in the US and not deal with the labor Unions.
You all speak of the rich causing the great depression? You are right but today it is the Federal Government that is the rich one trying to control everyone. American companies control very little compared to the few during the great depression. The government tells you they will help, they raise taxes to help you .. well that raising of taxes also trickles down to you and me. They don’t take that from their pockets, they pass it on to the consumer. That is called overhead for you non-educated peers of mine. Half of all companies overhead is taxes … those taxes that are being raised to help you is actually hurting you more than you know or realize. The disturbing thing about it you keep voting for the same people that say they will help you and at the same time are robbing all of us blind of our jobs and money without any responsibilty … just kills me.

The corporations pay for half of the taxes in this country. Do not actually look at the overspending government that has failed the middle class and is putting a stranglehold on corporations now. Do not look at the government that turned nanny and supports illegals financially and props them up for future votes while selling out the Country. Blame the banks for being smart enough to protect themselves from people that do not pay their loans back. Quite a few of you people are in denial and have a backwards point of view of what is really happening. The government is becoming is the problem the Demofats have spent us in to oblivion but make sure you do not recognize the obvious. Blame the corporations that are leaving this country in droves due to our politicians.

America’s rise to No 1 in the world after World War 2 is based on conditions that can never again be repeated. The foreign competition (Germany, Russia, Japan) was destroyed during the war. The US had all the essentials to succeed: a stable political system, a population sick of warand eager to work very hard, a functioning industrial base that wasn’t bombed into oblivion and a huge landmass that provided virtually every natural resource in abundant quantity that a modern growing economy needs: vast petroleum reserves, all kinds of mines, fresh water and cheap land.

While the 20th century belonged to America, the 21st century will belong to China and Asia. Their populations never had mass prosperity, and therefore they will work much harder and for far lower wages than Westerners. It’s brute economics, capitalism, call it what you want, love it or hate it, but it’s there. And it will drive the Asian developement in the future the same way it drove American development in the past.

It is the ed. system that teaches/influences students, who become leaders, to focus on designing strategies and making decisions to maximize profit. This is not at all well-balanced, but still, it permeates throughout all other sectors, e.g. legal and medical. It is the basic philosophy used by the GOP to build the system during the industrialization era and is the default system that is still being pushed today despite that the playing field is rapidly changing. Until this changes, or a better balance is obtained, or something extraordinary happens/employed, nothing else will, and the old model will be perpetuated with “duct tape” fixes until it completely fails.

How could we give that kind of status to a communist country. Heck over 58,000 died in Vietnam and look at it now. It’s one of the top US tourist spots in the world. The super class that owns all the central banks across the world were responsible for this great recession just like they were for the Great Depression. Yet we continue to vote in the same 2 parties who are in bed with these people.
