Boy, rSin is real ass-hurt, huh? Good luck with that anger, bra!

My solutions I've put forth before;

Encourage manufacturing in Mexico and Central America. Get out of China and Asia almost entirely. This results in propping up our friends South of the border, lowers transportation costs, and gives them low-skill, good paying jobs.

This gives them good jobs, props up their economy, dissuades people from seeking criminal jobs, and is easy access to support from the US.

China is not our friend, why give them all the manufacturing revenue?

It's a no-brainer to me. And a win-win.

Alright, some real data.

OK, we know the cause of rockfall.

Greg's data shows rock fall occurs primarily in areas frequented by climbers. Republicans make up about 30% of most populations but there is only one known climber who is republican. But Quantum Mechanics tells us things can be everywhere at the same time. Clearly this law has to rule as Ron Anderson does not climb in Yosemite. There it is. Just the chance Ron could be in the Valley is the cause for the rock fall.

QED.

Sometimes I am so smart I can't stand myself.

Yep, little known, undiscussed topic. I work with a guy from Mexico City, a legal immigrant, and he would concur.

Biggest problem Mexico is corruption because of the lack of a working economy. Hence, my plan to bring them some manufacturing jobs.

I should run for prez....

NAFTA hosed South America...When the Mexican dairies had to compete with American subsidized dairies they tanked...Now the cartels have moved into the former dairy regions...The Chinese are shipping produce to mexico cheaper than what the mexicans can produce...The insanity continues...

NAFTA wasn't a good idea.

The overall effect of the MexicoľU.S. agricultural agreement is a matter of dispute. Mexico did not invest in the infrastructure necessary for competition, such as efficient railroads and highways, which resulted in more difficult living conditions for the country's poor. Mexico's agricultural exports increased 9.4 percent annually between 1994 and 2001, while imports increased by only 6.9 percent a year during the same period.[17]
One of the most affected agricultural sectors is the meat industry. Mexico has gone from a small-key player in the pre-1994 U.S. export market to the 2nd largest importer of U.S. agricultural products in 2004, and NAFTA may be credited as a major catalyst for this change. The allowance of free trade removed the hurdles that impeded business between the two countries. As a result, Mexico has provided a growing market for meat for the U.S., leading to an increase in sales and profits for the U.S. meat industry. This coincides with a noticeable increase in Mexican per capita GDP that has created large changes in meat consumption patterns, implying that Mexicans can now afford to buy more meat and thus per capita meat consumption has grown.[18]
Production of corn in Mexico has increased since NAFTA's implementation. However, internal corn demand has increased beyond Mexico's sufficiency, and imports have become necessary, far beyond the quotas Mexico had originally negotiated.[19] Zahniser & Coyle have also pointed out that corn prices in Mexico, adjusted for international prices, have drastically decreased, yet through a program of subsidies expanded by former president Vicente Fox, production has remained stable since 2000.[20]

Actually i dont know a lot about the NAFTA ramifications so i looked it up.

Seems full of lawsuits Zapatistas and the like. As far as your foul mouth shytfest this morning im not impressed.



edit: As i listened on the phone to this guy tell me i coulndt get the job due to not speaking spanish i could feel my face flushing. He said " man im sorry but that is just my situation right now." I answered with "really?"

Then i chuckled a wee bit and told him " im truly disappointed, and not just that i didnt get the job". Hung up,, then thought. The more i thought the madder i got. Thought of all manner of things actually. This was a supposed "shoe in" for me arranged by a friend who knew the guy. He didnt know of the situation though. The odds are stacked agin me as they are being 55 and a taxidermist for the past decades. Then that punch to the gut and i fully realized why so many are going nuts these days.


Sooo letseee,, IRS f*cked me for a christmas gift, and now the same govt seeks to bring in 60 million to see i never get a job.


I despise each and every one of the reps shoving this down my throat. Despise them in a CHOCTAW way i do. And i would love nothing more than to give each and every one of those treasonous pricks the CHOCTAW treatment of its enemy.

what are you talking about sending manufacturing to Mexico? Where were you in the 80's and nineties? Remember where your rust belt jobs went?

Here's the punch line: Guess where Canada's maunfacturing sector is going now? Thats right - back to illinois! You see a wonderful thing happened. A decade or so of impoverishment softened up the citizens there. No more nice Union wages are expected anymore. Take Catapillar for instance. They milked Ontario for tax breaks and subsidies, then pulled up shop and moved back to the states where the working poor are now willing to work for 13 bucks an hour.

Thats exactly what happened in Mexico a couple of decades ago. Your nice jobs went to Mexico where thier wages sucked. But they sucked even worse in Asia so thats where they are now. The really hilarious part is that due to escalating transportation costs now your rust belt is ready to compete with Mexico for shitty wages and Canada is the prime sucker to lose on this round of the Wheel of Misfortune.

You get it now Bluey? It is the circle of Strife. Kalifornia is next.

Tell your kids to get used to camp life. Camp life in Fort MacMurray.

I'm wrong???

Can you or anyone ( how about that Nohea guy who's so confidently smart about such worldly things) explain to me how I missed a few critical elements in my summation of your plan to set up manufacturing in Mexico?

And did you actually say that 13 bucks an hour is good? Good for who? The Wetback or the employer?

Rsin, i live in my shop- my living room/den/bedroom is 10' x8, and my kitchen /bathroom/shop sink is 5' by eight. I qualified for full welfare three years ago, but havent taken a g-damm dime. Try netting 12k and see where that gets you.

Dont talk like you know me. I dont do that to anyone else around here but you all sure seem to think your capable of the crystal ball shyt. And its pure mud, bud..

13/hr is an easily liveable wage. Not for me, because I seek out better employment, but for the less skilled, that's not bad.

a 13.00 pr hr job comes open here and there are college grads applying for them. By the HUNDREDS. 8/9 per hour is the standard starting wage all over the place. A wage where ONE cant even afford to "live".


I can damm well see theres a few here completely un familiar with the JOB market and job hunting in 2014. And GOOD FOR YA!

But youve not a clue.

The clue that you are clueless about is that you are deep into a race to the bottom. Every time you vote Republican, you dig the hole deeper. No the Dems are no saints, they are as deep in corporate pockets as most, but they are less willing. Quite a bit less. You vote for those who do the least damage, not the most.
