You obviously do not read what you copy-n-paste.<quoted text>
To make matters worse, in 1992, Bill Clinton and a coalition of Republicans and conservative Democrats gave us NAFTA, which turned a trickle of industries leaving our country into a giant sucking sound, as the unfairly ridiculed H. Ross Perot correctly predicted.
Today, corporations freedom to abandon American communities and workers and outsource to those countries with the lowest wages and worst working conditions has given them total control over how new advancements in technology and productivity are shared.
As a result of globalization, workers are virtually powerless to negotiate for higher wages or decent working conditions, even during a time of exploding productivity. In addition, corporate executives and their investors want all the benefits of scientific advancements and new technology for themselves. They feel no obligation to share with workers, even those who, over many years of service, were responsible for their previous successes in this country.
Today, if technology doubles the productivity of workers, they dont see their pay increase or their working conditions improvehalf of them get fired. They then enter the labor market and exert further downward pressures on general wage levels.

Unions were fine years ago. It wasn't until they were forcing companies into pension plans, etc. that they simply could not afford that brought about the major problems.

Get over it President Obama won
Many people did not want Romney and Ryan in the White House
With their stance on Medicare and Sccial Security and reproductive rights for women. Also their views and the middle and low income wage earners.
Their only caring about the million and billionaires not wanting to tax them.
Their views on immigration were wrong
The American people did not want a far right wing conservative tea party people in the White House
This should be the death blow to the tea party..

His legacy, after-effect.
#125772 Nov 11, 2012
Many people still don't like have an "unknown" in the WH.
Only caring about the rich....BS
Obama failed to enforce Federal Immigration Laws! Views on immigration? BS
The "AMERICAN PEOPLE" don't want a lying fraud as President who doesn't have a clue!
When Omama is done.....it may well be the death of the DIMs! BTW, I said that a long, long time ago.
There simply is no reason for anyone, not a soul, to look up to this so called leader (LMAO).
If you or anyone else thinks for one minute that Omama is going to help small businesses (where real jobs come from) then you've been fooled badly. The only way that hook is coming out is with your stomach attached to it.

He hadn't written a concession speech. Ha ha. He could've borrowed Dewey's, he apparently hadn't bothered to write one either.

You probably didn't know this you really know very little of anything. but NAFTA was the brain child of Bush 42 and was overwhelmingly supported by Republicans in Congress. But yes Clinton did sign it into law but only after Bush 42 had ramrodded it toward legislation. Check it out its been all over the internet with factual credible information. You have a right to an opinion but not the facts. When you get your facts correct just shut up for awhile.
#125777 Nov 11, 2012
Actually it was Bush 41 who championed NAFTA and it was overwhelmingly voted for by the Republicans in Congress at the time. and yes Clinton did sign the legislation but that was the extent of his involvement in it becoming law.
But thank you for explaining this correctly again for the Umpteeth f'n time. Why do these clowns on here not understand this? Right wingers don't read or understand anything else besides fux news and right wing blogs.
