So we have a Japanese company building a plant in MS and Cooper selling out. America is bankrupt and manufacturing jobs will end up competing with international wages not U.S. wages.

Exactly! Don't let this happen. Too many of our companies are foreign owned. We have to take our country back.

hey Warnice, If your going to insult me? Get an angle and a purpose.
No insult only a critic of being a wage slave when you could be free and own your production. Your labor enriches a foreign power and you have no control of the sale of your things you labor on.

Apparently you have a business that provides you and your family comfort. That is awesome. However, my bills are paid, I have benefits, and I sleep well. I had my own Buz. for years. For me? this works. For now.

But how long does "for me" work for the community? Greed never wins in the long run. Part of the social contract is to contribute to the community not take profits to another part of the world from the community. That taking of labor only makes everyone have less of a quality of life.
