WUGONG LAKE, China -- Perched above the banks of the fish farm he owns is Zhu Zhiqiu's secret weapon for breeding healthy fish: the medicine shed. Inside are iodine bottles, vitamin packets and Chinese herbal concoctions that he claims substitute for antibiotics.

Zhu's fish farm, in a village on the lower reaches of the Yangtze River, sends about 2.7 million catfish fillets each year to the United States through an importer in Virginia. Despite his best efforts -- he has dozens of employees clearing trash from the water each day, and the fish are fed sacks of fish meal more expensive than rice -- Zhu's fish sometimes get sick. Then he brings out the drugs.

"It's standard practice," he said. "Everyone uses them to keep fish healthy."

Chinese exporters like him have seized much of the U.S. market, accounting for 22 percent of all imports, because their fish are cheaper to raise.

The fish are being raised, however, in a country whose waterways are an ongoing environmental problem, tainted by sewage, pesticides, heavy metals and other pollutants. The situation is worst in the southern half of the country, where Zhu's farm is and where industrial runoff accumulates.

You must be a republican if you believe that:

Public schools are an unnecessary government expense but prisons are not.

A minimum wage is a governmental intrusion in the private market but the oil depletion allowance for corporations to drill for oil off our coast is not.

Warrantless wiretapping of american citizens is constitutional, but a women’s right to choose is not.

Races exist but racism does not.

Torture is necessary for the defense of American freedom but the freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures is not.

Providing affordable healthcare for children and all Americans is a governmental interference with the private market but subsidies to defense contractors are not.

Mrs. Dot Turner has worked at what is now Sensata Technologies in Downstate Freeport for 43 years. The company does sophisticated work creating sensors for automobiles. It enjoyed record profits last year. But not enough for its owner — Bain Capital — which is moving the jobs and the machinery to China.

When Sensata brought Chinese workers into the plant to be trained by those whose jobs they would take, the workers at Sensata protested.“When we started to demonstrate, they got those workers out of here,” Mrs. Turner told me.

Mrs. Dot Turner has worked at what is now Sensata Technologies in Downstate Freeport for 43 years. The company does sophisticated work creating sensors for automobiles. It enjoyed record profits last year. But not enough for its owner — Bain Capital — which is moving the jobs and the machinery to China.

When Sensata brought Chinese workers into the plant to be trained by those whose jobs they would take, the workers at Sensata protested.“When we started to demonstrate, they got those workers out of here,” Mrs. Turner told me.

The Sensata workers called on Mitt Romney — an investor in Sensata through his Bain holdings — to intervene. A group went to Iowa during the primaries to ask him to come to Freeport; they met with no success. Another group went to the Republican convention to ask him to come to Freeport; they had no success, either.

So, with the open support of Freeport’s mayor and City Council, the workers set up a “Bainport” encampment in the Stephenson County Fairgrounds right across the street from the plant.

“Welcome to Bainport, a taste of the Romney economy,” reads one sign.“Romney does have a jobs plan; too bad it’s for China,” reads another. And Mrs. Turner and others began to make their voices heard.

“We are suffering from the Bain model of capitalism,” Mrs. Turner said.“This is the way Bain works. They take over good companies, and then ship their jobs to China to make even more money.

“So when I hear Romney talking about creating jobs, he’s saying one thing and we are experiencing another. He’s creating jobs, but the jobs are in China, not here. And now under Bain, Sensata plans to give the managers and the supervisors their golden parachutes, but not the workers. I’ve been here 43 years, and they offer a lump sum payment for 26 weeks of salary. And the lump sum means taxes will take a big part of it.”

Yes he was, Phil. Jesus ran a big self-improvement after you're dead scam back in 1st Century Palestine, and you can kinda see how successful it was as a result of the name change.

Sadly the next president may be decided by people that are swayed by how one of them performs at a town hall meeting and not:
1. Which party took a budget surplus and turned it into a depression.
2. Which party led us into an unprovoked and unpaid for war and is looking for another chance to do the same thing.
3. Which party wants less regulation on businesses that helped us into the ditch.
4. Which party wants more regulation on women's bodies.
5. Which party will demolish Social Security.
6. Which party believes the emergency room = health care.
7. Which party wants more tax breaks for the wealthy.
8. Which party thinks government should prevent people from choosing who they can marry.
9. Which party thinks 47% of the people in this country are leeches.
10. Which party believes government should be used as a tool to impose religious dogma.
I could go on but the people that are reading this already knew these things and the people that might be influenced by the "performance" of the debaters rather than their policies probably stopped reading this a long time ago.
1. Both parties took a surplus and turned it into a recession - your party being the more guilty of the two. Of course, there was 9/11 and two wars which both parties supported.
2. Both parties knew Saddam was a threat and had to go. Democrats even voted to oust him in 1998 - before they turned into weasels.
3. Over regulation is more dangerous than under regulation. Republicans are willing to find a happy medium. We learned a valuable lesson. Democrats didn't.
4. It's nobody's business what women do with their bodies. It's everybody's business when another life is involved.
5. No party is going to "demolish" SS. It will "demolish" all by itself if left up to the Democrats. Reform is an absolute necessity and, what's worse, your party knows it.
6. Democrats are notorious for wanting free ER care - especially to illegals.
7. Reforming the tax code will ensure the wealthy pay more in taxes. Democrats want to keep spending every penny they take in.
8. Moderate Democrats, Hispanics and a large segment of the black community voted against Prop 8 - in California twice.
9. Politicians sometimes word things incorrectly. As long as they admit it was incorrect. Democrats don't know how to do that. Just ask Joe "they're gonna put ya'll back in chains" Biden.
10. No party believes government should be used to impose religious doctrine.

You must belong to the easily fooled crowd.

I heard the guy was a carpenter. Beyond that--I don't think he was a proponent of GREED-in anyone.

Does being part of big business or being wealthy constitute the definitions of the qualifying traits of GREED? Are ALL such people with the realms of greedy? If so, Is it just those people, that are Greedy?

I think not.

Tom Brokaw Blames Obama For Deficit
October 16, 2012 by Bryan Nash


UPI FILE

While appearing on “Meet the Press,” Tom Brokaw weighed in on the problem of the national deficit. The retired news anchor said that it has only gotten worse under President Barack Obama’s watch.

The Obama campaign has repeatedly harped on the unclear economic plan of Mitt Romney. Brokaw said that Romney should turn the tables and ask the President to describe in specific detail what he plans to do to reverse the problem he has caused.

“I do think that the governor is right, and we’ll expect to hear Governor Romney go after President Obama this time about ‘I want more details about your plan. You keep harping on me. I haven’t heard the details in your plan as well.’”

He went on to insinuate that the President needs to take responsibility.

Referring to debates that Obama was involved in before he was President, Brokaw commented,“President Obama was saying,‘Look we’ve got a deficit of a half of a trillion dollars. I’m gonna get that under control.’ Well this week, that deficit is 1.1 trillion dollars and it happened on his watch.”
