Well, for those getting close to retirement - it may be good for people to cash out and place their money in safer investments.

But since you're way past retirement and the alimony ran out 30 years ago - good luck

Of course. However, when dealing with an absolute nut job like sexy sassysenior, there is no point in being rational.

The already knew about that, but they said you would sober up and come back alive and I had nothing to worry about. You'd sleep it off, they said, and then, you'd be as meek as a mouse, just putty in my hands...or anybody else's!

Sorry to tell you, but I never got any alimony...didn't ask for it, didn't even go to Court...just let my Lawyers handle the whole thing. So, you won't get any money out of me! If you're looking for a Sugar-Mommy, you've definitely struck out here!

Any excuse to cover-up your own short-comings, huh Baby? That's OK, if you haven't learned how to think rationally by now, you probably never will. How old are you now, anyway, about 60?

Yeah, but do you know what gender to use it on? Nevermind, I don't really want to know the answer to that.

Let's just assume that you meant...to put your snuff under...move your chewing gum around with...make faces at your Kids or Grandkids...Whew! I wiggled out of that pretty good, don't you think?

Smart people never require truth to "hit" them in the face. Your concept of cognitive function seems a little "rustic" here! However, for years I've seen the same group of stupid people getting hit with it all the time and they're so dumb they still don't really know anything!! It's incredible! Apparently some are frequently getting hit in the head and are now functionally brain-dead, totally incapable of any reasoning ability whatsoever! I'm sure you must've seen some of these people in your own life. A good number of them have gravitated towards Washington, specifically...the Democrat Congress.

How can we have growth when the jobs are going to China and the Mexicans are coming here to take the ones that havn't left yet'
Wages are going down when you can get cheap labor from Mexico,etc.Then Americans end up with lower wages if they want to work.
In China they work for about $10.00 a day and can not afford someone to watch their kids and tie them to the factory walls while they work.
Is this where we are heading to be able to compete.
What is the answer.
I don't think outsourcing is socialism.
I will probably get blasted from some of the far left posters on here, but some of the reasons jobs get outsourced are as follows:

The U.S. has the EPA, China and Mexico don't
The U.S. has OSHA, China and Mexico don't
The U.S. has unions, China and Mexico don't
The U.S. has workman's comp, unemployment costs, China and Mexico don't.
The U.S. has various employment taxes levied on employers in addition to wages, China and Mexico don't.

I agree, most of these things that get levied on employers help the environment, workers' safety, etc., but they also add huge costs to every business and corporation.

But the real reason jobs get outsourced is because the American consumer only wants to pay the lowest price. Low priced goods sell. Higher priced goods don't. We, as consumers, force businesses and corporations to seek ways to lower costs. Place a Chinese made good right beside an American made good that costs 15% more and the Chinese good will outsell the American made good 95% of the time. I see this every day.

This country is now a service based country instead of a manufacturing based country. That means manual labor jobs will decrease, but white collar jobs will increase. If you want higher wages, then our workforce will have to obtain some skills that are in demand by a service based nation. White collar wages have increased dramatically. Professional job wages have increased dramatically. Blue collar job wages haven't increased a whole lot because of lower demand and immigration. A government can help with the immigration part of this, but can't do one thing about anything else nor should they. There is plenty of opportunity in this country for a higher paying job, but you have to take the initiative to go acquire the skills necessary for these higher paying jobs. You can't drop out of school, do drugs, live your life irresponsibly, start having kids at 16, etc. and expect the government to do something to ensure you make a decent living. That is not the government's responsibility nor the taxpayers who do make the right choices.

And all this talk about the greedy wealthy taking away from the poor, that is utter nonsense. This may sound harsh, but what do the poor have that the wealthy want to take away? The wealthy would rather have no one be poor in this country so that our government won't increase their taxes to take care of them. Some may say, "then they should pay higher wages." The answer to this is that they will pay what the market will bear and for the skills that are needed. Paying anything more would increase costs to the point their products won't sell. Paying less won't attract the talent needed to produce a decent yield.

The bottom line is if the American consumer would buy only U.S. made goods, there wouldn't be any outsourcing. However, in this country, people have actually killed to save a buck, so this probably won't change. The moral of the story is to get as good of an education as you can get and pair that with a lot of initiative. Only that will get you higher wages. Depending on the government will only doom you to a sub-standard living.

Excellent pots, Pete.

Makes you wonder about President Clinton giving China "favored Nation Status," with the same out-pouring of US AID and foreign aid by Presidents Bush and Obama. George Herbert Walker Bush effectively created the second "industrial revolution" in China, the nation which has 16% corporate tax rate and about to be lowered again. And, as you aptly pointed out, China industry has no regulatory commissions trying to murder their economy!! Bear in mind, All these presidents were carping about how America must learn to "compete in the global economy"! Do you realy believe this is all an accident, as if sheer mathematical trends weren't anticipated? We know better.
