Correct. China is in bad shape because of pollution. It's one of the reasons you and I buy Chinese products; because they are cheaper due to no environmental regulation.
Here in the US, we had environmental regulations on industry. But they kept getting more regulated, more regulated, and more regulated to the point industry moved to a country with absolutely no regulations.
So what was accomplished here? Industry moved from a country with major regulations to a country with few if any regulations. And you think you've helped in this so-called fight against global warming? Are these industries not polluting much more than when they were here?
It reminds me of what Limbaugh frequently says "Liberalism is not about accomplishments, liberalism is about intent. That's how they measure success."
I see it in my industry all the time. Because new tractors are loaded with thousands of dollars of pollution crap, not to mention DEF fluid that all newer trucks must run on, companies are opting to keep their old polluting rigs on the road and keep rebuilding the engines. They don't want to deal with all these environmental costs. When that gets to unaffordable, they will sell those old truck to Mexicans who will drive them here.
Nice work environmentalists. You're doing a good job. LOL!
So you're saying we should poison our land, water, and air just so that your corporate overlords can make a quick buck? Turn a blind eye to obvious proven science to appease your free market demigod? Just. Wow!
For someone who claims to hate communism, you seem all too eager to emulate them when it suits your cause or benefits your trivial job, comrade trucker buddy...

The alarmist science czar that Obama has in place predicted a new ice age would develop by 2020 in a 1971 study. Now he's appearing in a taxpayer funded video from the White House trying to scare ppl about global warming. Why do people buy into this shit?

It's 50 degrees right now in in mid January in NE Ohio. The real question is why do people like yourself, go with outdated energy lobby propaganda instead of going with the overwhelming majority of the experts in climate science? And of course there's always this...

The only thing I usually watch on Fox is Bill O'. He had extensive coverage about this stupid bridge story. Now we learn that this 91 year old woman that supposedly died because of this traffic jam was not because of the lane closures at all. Her family admitted it would have made no difference.
So that justifies all the lost time and wages, which has to be huge. The lost little boy they were delayed getting to, thankfully found okay. All the kids late to school, but as one snipey e-mail stated, "Who cares, they're parents probably vote Dem anyway". All the new evidence coming out about how deep the cover-up really is. It's okay that we disrupted thousands and thousands of people's lives for four days over political revenge. It's a lot more than a story over a 'STUPID BRIDGE story. It's only just begun fool. And Billy Boy's truthfulness track record isn't very good either.

Yeah, right. Given the fact that Wal-Mart sells cheap Chinese products, I would be willing to bet that many of your environmentalist friends are shopping there.
Where are the jobs? Where are the jobs? It's those corporate people that only care about themselves!! It doesn't have anything to do with what we've done for the environment. Of course not. It has nothing to do with the high taxation in this country. It's those greedy corporate CEO's, that's the problem.
Sh1t, the only reason West Virginia's water is poison right now is because the coal isn't in China and they can't outsource the work there. I'm sure that the fact that people will work for a nickel an hour in those countries they outsource to has nothing to do with it, right? It's all taxes. Wonder how much the coal industry makes in a year, even with all those nasty little taxes you guys love to dodge so much. Bet it's millions and millions of dollars in profit. Go ahead and explain how they could possibly make millions, if not billions in a year, despite taxes here in America. Good luck.

Those poor wittle CEOs have made exponentially more money with each passing year, while the average wages for workers has flatlined for 20 years. Nothing greedy going on there. Hey, what color is the sky in your world? Here on earth, ours is blue.

That's an odd statement. There are a few Indian Jews, but not many. Is this some kind of weird insult against Indians? Or did you have something else in mind?

Meaning that those that have the ability move their industries out of the country. Even if you make a good buck here, you can make a better buck somewhere else. Your customers expect as much and so do your stock holders.
See you in China then, or Costa Rica, or whatever other toxic wasteland you decide to further ruin for profit. Good riddance, comrade!
Oh, and don't be too surprised when your QC goes bye-bye and be ready to face the inevitable lawsuits when us thinky people find out you're still putting lead paint on baby bottles to make a buck.
Also don't be surprised when your corporate cries for deregulation and your "taxed enough already" victim BS go unheard....

Interesting....

After I read your post, I googled US population. 316,148,990.
http://www.census.gov/popclock/

At this link they confirm your 90 million unemployed estimate.
http://investmentwatchblog.com/a-worlds-recor...

Doing the math using those 2 figures it would appear that the "official" unemployment rate may have been errrrrrr fudged?

Maybe I missed something..........
