    The Bush administration's push for CAFTA will move us one step closer to ruin, and speed us along in this descent into the "Third World". :(

    I guess it's okay if we ruin our own country as long as we can set up a new Islamic state in the Middle East. :rolleyes:

    Perhaps if the American worker were willing to work for the same wage as imported labor. But it seems to me the American worker would rather make no money than less money. That's not to say US firms are innocent, cu they ain't. But the American worker is hardly sinless here.

    Of course, we do all know that the story in the OP is not a news story, don't we?

    As long as I can continue supporting my family I'll do manual labor work the rest of my life. Being a Teamster isn't all that bad.

    NAFTA + CAFTA = SHAFTA

    I just read we lost over 100,000 jobs and for
    those who like to purvey good news that the
    unemployment rate is low..guess what their are
    jobs out their, very low paying jobs. People at
    Kodak, HP, and soon Ford majority of them will
    not find equal paying jobs..it really is a race
    to the bottom.

    Warning: [​IMG] If when you lose the middle class in this
    country or it is under tremendous stress you lose
    a key population that plays by the rules, pays
    its tithes, reaches out to the poor. Now that's
    a moral outrage!

    And what Ross Perot more than a decade a go "That
    giant sucking sound you hear......." is correct
    only it is real and accelerated, our wealth
    and dignity is going off our shores...that is
    real treason!

    Of course China and India want to buy American
    companies they are flooded with American wealth
    and they will have their cyclones on full bore to
    suck em up...people can be bought in this country
    it is called greed and to blue blazes with the
    rest.

    Spies sucking up intellectual wealth as well

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/4704691.stm

    China has about 3,000 "front" companies in the US that exist mainly to obtain technology and military secrets, according to US officials.


    and once they are here and get caught they
    are well connected ..one was a Republican
    fundraiser and she has gone scott free.

    For this to segue back to the topic, I am just
    pointing out how people can hold out and even
    vote against American interests when they have
    been bought and paid for and been compromised
    by a well orchestrated espionage campaign..and
    we wonder why congress keep their vote secret
    or change their vote until the very last moment.

    It has a wunder lust of sell out because the
    culture has it ingrained into their head they
    will not be held accountable ..and sadly
    they are right.

    and our executive branch is the 1000 lb gorilla
    in the room wanting pure carte blanche over our
    trade agreement..it is time to stop the madness.

    The madness has been going on for decades & is a runaway train on the track to doom.

    I reference: None Dare Call it Treason - the book I cut my political teeth on as a youth in the 1960s.

    Check out the synopsis & comments here:

    John,
    Most of those who ask this question always, always, fail to distinguish between legal imported labor and illegal imported labor.

    The giant sucking sound that Perot heard was the sound of all the illegals leaving Mexico and heading to Indianapolis.

    [​IMG] Well, Marion County (Indianapolis) is broke but then we have to pay tribute to the Indianapolis Colts to stay here. The Mexicans in my neighborhood don't want to assimilate. They put Spanish all over their cars and houses and fly the Mexican flag everywhere.

    Rivers, I think that they are a net loss because of their need for free medicine, free education, and extensive policing. I am surprised that they stay in the Middle West, but when this housing boom is over, Hispanics may drift to the more prosperous East Coast and West Coast. Some of them are pure Indians and don't even speak Spanish. I don't mind the legal ones but I think that the illegal ones should be encouraged to go home.

    Just out of curiosity, when was the last time you were in New York City or Newark New Jersey or even Manchester New Hampshire CMG? I've been on construction jobs in these cities where if your not at least trilingual you'll never understand the jokes at coffee time and it's been like that for a long long time. No one would notice the difference out here if there was an illegal invasion to the 10th power. It isn't PC to ask for green cards either.

    ¬°Gracias a Dios, I have never been to any of those places, Poncho! Eastern prosperity may attract Midwestern illegals as time goes by. We can track our invasion specifically because it is very recent. Unfortunately, our economy in Indianapolis itself is stagnant; although once you get outside the county that Indianapolis is in, the economy is better. They are putting up billboards on all the interstates that read, "Will the last one out of Indianapolis, please turn out the lights?"

    No, a lot of them ended up in Tennessee. Because a few years ago, the Great Leaders of the State of Tennessee decided to give illegal aliens Driver's Licenses, it has become a magnet for illegals.

    Of course, they do the menial jobs that no American would ever consider doing, such as masonry, groundskeeping, working fast food, trench digging, housekeeping in motels & hotels, etc.

    There is a local movement arising to try & remedy the problem, though.
