Good catch. It was the elder President Bush (Herbert Walker) that crafted NAFTA.But I remember it being endorsed by by most of the former Presidents. It may yet turn out to be a good thing, but that would be a hard sell to most. Time will tell. It was even more unpopular in Canada than here."
Once again, your comment here prompts me to post another column from Dr Walter Williams:

"The United States is the world's largest recipient of foreign direct investment. According the Economic Report of the President, in 2004, foreigners owned $5.5 trillion in U.S. assets and had $2.3 trillion in sales. They produced $515 billion of goods and services, accounting for 5.7 percent of total U.S. private output, and employed 5.1 million workers, or 4.7 percent of the U.S. workforce in 2004. According to the Congressional Research Service, in 2006 alone, foreign investors spent $184 billion investing in U.S. businesses and real estate, the highest amount foreign investors have spent since 2000. My question to Clinton, Obama and the anti-trade lobby is, would Americans be better off if there were no foreign investment in our country?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, between 1996 and 2006, about 15 million jobs were lost and 17 million created each year. That's an annual net creation of 2 million jobs. Roughly 3 percent of the jobs lost were a result of foreign competition. Most were lost because of technology, domestic competition and changes in consumer tastes.

Some of the gain in jobs is a result of "insourcing". Foreign companies, such as Nissan, Honda, Nokia, and Novartis, set up plants, hire American workers and pay them wages higher than the national average. According to Dartmouth College professor Matthew Slaughter, "insourced" jobs paid a salary 32 percent higher than the average U.S. salary. So here's my question to anti-traders: If "outsourcing" is harmful to the U.S., it must also be harmful to European countries and Japan; would you advise them to take their jobs back home?"

Can you give me a concrete example of this "negativity" toward whites? I haven't seen it.
Obama seems very reserved to me. Nixon had an "enemies list", people he would actively try to hurt with his considerable political power. LBJ was a physical thug (not unlike Putin.) They were both old hands at the hardball political game. Obama is not like that. He's young and inexperienced in the meaner aspects of modern politics. If Obama is hurting your feelings, I would suggest that you prepare for the possibility of "President Clinton II: Hillary Rising." She may turn out to be even meaner than Obama.
Just a hunch, from an old guy that's been watching politics for a long time...
There have been several events I took umbrage with:

First off was DumBama's comment about a white police officer doing his job because he arrested a black professor that refused to cooperate with the police officer after a neighbor called about a possible break in. It was the professors home, but before DumBama knew any of the details, he publicly insulted the white police officer on national television. Later he offered him a beer to make nice-nice.

Racist Holder refused to level charges of voter intimidation against two Black Panther members. They were at the polls harassing white voters.

Out of the thousands of shootings that take place every year in our country, DumBama publicly came out to support Trayvon Martin, so to the point he said if he had a son, his son would look like Trayvon.

Racist Holder sent his FBI minions to Florida to find something---anything related to race in this self-defense shooting even though race was not an issue. After the Zimmerman trial where he was rightfully found not guilty, Holder vowed revenge on Zimmerman threatening federal charges against him. During that time, Holders minions funded rallies against George Zimmerman that could have easily sparked riots. I really believe this was something Racist Holder was hoping for.

300 black girls were kidnapped in Nigeria. Mrs. DumBama publicly came out to hash tag this situation. Now we sent some people there to find these girls even though we have plenty of kidnapping problems and slavery right here in the US. Of course, many of those victims are white girls so they don't really count in the eyes of Moochelle. Her outrage of these kidnappings gained national attention while one of our white former military men sits in a Mexican prison because he took a wrong turn into Mexico and had three firearms on him.

It was a Republican idea though. Again, Clinton just went along with the ride.
Same thing with welfare reform. After it became known that Welfare Reform was a success, Clinton took all the credit even though he never wanted it in the first place. Hell, he vetoed the bill twice before. The only reason he finally signed it was because he feared vetoing it again could cost him his reelection. But those of us who were awake at the time know that it was all Newt Gingrich and the Republicans responsible for Welfare Reform.
I didn't know about the union thing though. If that's what happened, then I have to give the Democrats some credit there. Nobody should be allowed to hold their employer hostage over money. If you want to work, then get to work. If you don't want to work, then go home and let somebody else have the job that appreciates it.
If you want to work and support a family, not crawl on your belly for a corporate nickel, vote Hillary 2016. Gee, why did I make 10K more a year under Clinton and why is Newt Gingrich being funded by oil billionaires? Hey, neat. The "Contract with America" was penned by the Koch Brothers. Oopsie. There's that name again...and again...and again...

Did I happen to mention that a solar energy plant just matched the energy output of a fossil fuel power plant? Look at all those Tea Bagger eggs in one basket. The wrong basket, might I add.

And you yank off to DumBama and his fatzz wife:
Water Vapor Confirmed as Major Player in Climate Change
Water vapor is known to be Earth’s most abundant greenhouse gas, but the extent of its contribution to global warming has been debated. Using recent NASA satellite data, researchers have estimated more precisely than ever the heat-trapping effect of water in the air, validating the role of the gas as a critical component of climate change.
Andrew Dessler and colleagues from Texas A&M University in College Station confirmed that the heat-amplifying effect of water vapor is potent enough to double the climate warming caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
With new observations, the scientists confirmed experimentally what existing climate models had anticipated theoretically. The research team used novel data from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite to measure precisely the humidity throughout the lowest 10 miles of the atmosphere. That information was combined with global observations of shifts in temperature, allowing researchers to build a comprehensive picture of the interplay between water vapor, carbon dioxide, and other atmosphere-warming gases. The NASA-funded research was published recently in the American Geophysical Union's Geophysical Research Letters.

You are ruining my planet Boy Toy. Get off of my earth...... NOW!
That is something new to me. But according to you time and time again, you deny climate change and then you point out an article on climate change from the same people you have called liars over and over. How can I be ruining your planet from something you deny is going on? Huge flip flop there fat boy. It's nice to see though that think by driving that hi-cube it enables you to even turn that computer on and the communication systems that enables you use it. But you do know to change a light bulb so now you are an electrician too. Oh, that's right, you had to look a youtube video to figure out how. Could you please teach me how to fix a 1000w 480v HPS fixture that's hanging 60' in the air? How about a 1500w 480v MVR Stadium fixture? I didn't think so.

manufacturing batteries is one of the highest polluters period.

the batteries in a hybrid car produced 10 times the emissions a Hummer would during it's entire lifespan.

See Canada, and the acid rains from battery production.

then you plug in the hybrid to electricity produced from coal.

you libs aren't to smucking fart.

PS: natural gas is the ticket, and we could retro fit every vehicle tomorrow to utilize it.

The Contract With America worked and it worked very well. They were not only able to balance the budget, but pay down the debt to the point a projected surplus was in place. Pretty slick of those Koch brothers, don't you think?

fetching what works is what smart people do.

chasing a failed dream is what confused people do.

Serious note.....NYC is a great city. Do some diligence on the internet for living quarters, and on public transportation routes.

NYC is an expensive place due to it being a buyers market.....lots of people.

if you can perform home repairs yourself, you can find apartments that require some love, and over time make them your place proud to be shown.

avoid realtors as they get cuts on rent, and read papers and local rags for opportunities.

Canton to NYC is night and day. Both have advantages and disadvantages. If you can afford NYC and want an experience, then I say go for it.

I myself prefer NYC to DC. Both of these places define traffic, so sell your car before moving.

It's so strange and against everything you keep telling me, but states where the American workers have a heavy Union influence make more a year than those that don't. Oh, that's right. Almost forgot. American workers should crawl on their bellies for the crumbs that fall off the table of the big boss man. Now over in China...now there's a shining example of what busting the unions should be like. I completely understand why right wing American people would want what China has going on. Let's all take care of our children like China does. Oh, almost forget.

Awww. What's wrong Boy Toy? Did I offend you by using one of your very own people to prove you wrong yet again?

Now what would happen if we didn't have modern fuels that we use today?

For one, we would all be cooking on wood burning stoves. How much climate change would we be responsible for if 7 billion people were doing that? And of course we would have to burn wood to stay warm during the winter too. Imagine how many trees a family with an average size house would consume every year.

Then we would have to travel using bicycles or horses. How much global gases are associated with all that horse crap?

You libs think that we humans lived in a virtual pollution free world until man developed factories and cars. Humans and animals have been sending out these so-called global gasses as long as we've been here. You stand a better chance at stopping the world from turning than you are stopping all global gasses.
