Hear candidates on K-Bay.

Jay, when did you become so smart? before you were a truck driver or after? Any "smart" truck driver would have KNOWN that no dash lights= blown fuse. Simple fix.......  (Jul 9, 2010 | post #77)

Well, well, reality hits home. Let me tell you what has driven manufacturing jobs OUT OF the US........unions, dumb management(no spines, no guts) and the IRS. Unsure of what your back ground is, how old you are or how much water you've seen go "under the bridge"?Havin g a background in machine tools opens ones eyes to the in and out of manufacturing, no lathe, no milling machine=1776. Much of todays problem began back in the 60's-70's when unions had most of manufacturing by the short hairs, strikes, intimidation of non union workers, oh, not unlike ACORN today,management just gave in and let the unions have their way. In plain english, management did not just tell them to stick it. Stock holders, BOD's and wall street could not take it, just threw in the towel. I remember passing by a storage field outside of Peroia, Ill in about 1979, there was "Cat" equipment as far as I could see in 5 or 6 rows. During discussons with some management types, I learned that Cat was paying millions of dollars of taxes on equipment that was not sold.I asked why? Was told they were taxed on "Completed Equipment".To ld they tried not "completing the equipment" by leaving off the wheels or other small components but the IRS changed the regulations to "substantial completion", so what the heck. Back then they were selling 1000's of units a quarter. This is just the tip of the iceburg of what is wrong. Until such a time that business in general can operate without the draconian IRS regulations, ther is no hope.  (Jul 8, 2010 | post #9)

You must have missed the part of US History with the Industrial Revolution. By chance you wish to live as they did in 1776, there are plenty of 3rd world hell holes that fit the bill. Pray tell what "other sources" of energy are there Now that will allows the US to maintain our standard of living? Talk about sacrifice....just wait til we all do our taxes next year.....unless you do't pay  (Jul 8, 2010 | post #7)
