• I was just quoting Democratic talking points, if that's cynical then I can't help if that's your opinion.

  • Re: rollingstone. Thanks for your cynical comments. It affirms the fact that people like you do exist and allows the rest of us to maintain sanity and allow for a civil discourse on what is best for America.

  • This China syndrome is a problem. What to do? I suggest we increase government spending and raise taxes, not just a little but a lot that will increase equality and stimulate the economy. Oh yeah before I forget, we need to increase regulations, but we’ll need more regulators and that will also create more jobs. Let’s do this and wait four more years and see what we have, and if it doesn’t work? Well then at least we can say we tried.....right?

    Oh, and one more thing we should have free contraceptives for everyone whether they want them are not that will stimulate (?) the contraceptive industry.....and yep you got it, create more jobs. H3ll while we’re at it we should make health care, housing, college tuition, and food free if we are not already doing that. Making these and more things free will really, really stimulate demand - that’s exactly what we want. Then everything will be really peachy as it should be.....not just for four years, but forever!

  • I am glad you mentioned that. Microsoft has a similar set up in China. Strange how we always go after the clothing and shoe industry when workers are subjected to slave labor conditions. No one seems to care, at least I have not heard of any backlash from any organization that calls for a boycott of Apple and Microsoft products. Is it possible that there is double standard concerning issues of slave-like working conditions and pay whereas the product dictates the outcry of the American public? Thanks for your comment Mike.

  • I was watching CNN's GPS hosted by Fareed Zararia as he was describing the reason Apple choose to go overseas... It wasn't because of high corporate taxes. He explained that the workers work in hazardous conditions in China. No American worker will do that (nor should they). He said that one time they needed thousands of iPhone glass screens .so they woke the workers (who had to live at the compound) and made them work around the clock to fill the order. They couldn't get away with that here. We won't see those jobs again, so we have to develop some 21st century jobs that the world is clamoring for.

    The construction industry is still down, so those workers need to get into the medical field and train as x-ray technicians but as you say, that takes education. The community college may be the answer.
