In spite of the costs and legal fees of this uprising, why doesn't anyone mention the cost to taxpayers on the damage these maniacs caused to the state capitol and grounds. At the time they were inhabiting "their house" people were still trying to do the government's business; coming into work amidst hordes of angry people camping all over the floors for days on end. When the stench was so bad in there and they asked them to leave, they even refused, some of them.
The final estimate of damage done was quoted as between 7 and 11 million dollars. Reporters who were there told of the damages to the marble walls, where people had taken magic marker and wrote notes - damage to the railings and interior of the halls. Some described the damage to the bathrooms, where union supporters plugged toilets so the water would overflow into other areas. The cleanup was atrocious, not to mention all the plants and landscaping was destroyed and littered with paper and garbage.
This is how the people treated the Capitol according to investigators and those covering the news. Millions of dollars in damage which had to be picked up by taxpayers. Some described the behavior in these scenes as "animalistic."
This is inexcusable. Thumbs up to Walker!

What are the effects of NAFTA/CAFTA on the American economy?
The Economic Policy Institute published a study of the effects of NAFTA on the U.S. worker more than a decade after its 1993 passage. The results are alarming.
Despite its name, the primary purpose of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was not to facilitate trade among separate sovereign societies. Rather, it was to promote an integrated continental economy and establish the rules to govern it.
Twelve years later, it is clear that the costs to workers outweighed the benefits in all three nations.
The 1 million jobs displaced by NAFTA trade, primarily in manufacturing, would have paid $800 per week or more in 2004. The average job in the rest of the economy paid only $683 per week, 16% to 19% less than trade-related jobs. Growing trade deficits with Mexico and Canada have pushed more than 1 million workers out of higher-wage jobs and into lower-wage positions in non-trade related industries. Thus, the displacement of 1 million jobs from traded to non-traded goods industries reduced wage payments to U.S. workers by $7.6 billion in 2004 alone.
NAFTA alone is responsible for the loss of at least 1,000,000 good paying U.S. jobs, mostly in manufacturing while at the same time wages continue to be driven down.
Other job killing Clinton initiatives, besides NAFTA and the U.S. joining the WTO, include Clinton praising the approval of China into the WTO with the statement "This landmark act will extend our economic prosperity at home while increasing the prospects for more openness in China".
Again, Clinton lied and continued his ruthless manipulation of the American worker (Bush is no different). There was no extension of economic prosperity in the U.S. resulting from America joining the WTO and approving the entry of China into the organization. In an Economic Policy Institute (EPI) analysis, the results of trade with China equated to staggering job losses in America.
Contrary to the predictions of its supporters, China's entry into the World Trade Organization (WTO) has failed to reduce its trade surplus with the United States or increase overall U.S. employment. The rise in the U.S. trade deficit with China between 1997 and 2006 has displaced production that could have supported 2,166,000 U.S. jobs. Most of these jobs (1.8 million) have been lost since China entered the WTO in 2001.Between 2001 and 2006, jobs were displaced in every state and the District of Columbia. Nearly three-quarters of the jobs displaced were in manufacturing industries. Simply put, the promised benefits of trade liberalization with China have been unfulfilled.
Many economists blame the catastrophic trade imbalances between China and the U.S. as no more than China deliberately keeping its currency devalued while imposing slave wage rates. EPI suggests that this equates to a 40% Chinese subsidy on exports.
As a matter of policy, China tightly pegs its currency's value to that of the dollar at a rate that encourages a large bilateral surplus with the United States. Maintaining this peg required the purchase of about $200 billion in U.S. Treasury Bills and other securities in 2006 alone.1 This intervention makes the yuan artificially cheap and provides an effective subsidy on Chinese exports; best estimates are that the rate of this effective subsidy is roughly 40%. China also engages in extensive suppression of labor rights; it has been estimated that wages in China would be 47% to 85% higher in the absence of labor repression.
As the Chinese cleverly manipulate their currency to give subsidized Chinese products price advantages in foreign markets, this is at the expense of the American worker. More importantly, there is no way that the American worker can possibly compete with the slave wages in China.

NAFTA

Download PDF version of guide for print
I. Introduction

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was implemented on January 1, 1994. It is designed to remove tariff barriers between the U.S., Canada and Mexico. NAFTA includes two important side agreements on environmental and labor issues that extend into cooperative efforts to reconcile policies, and procedures for dispute resolution between the member states. NAFTA is known in French as ALENA (Accord de libre-échange nord américain), and in Spanish as TLC (Tratado de libre comercio) or TLCAN (Tratado de libre comercio de américa del norte).

NAFTA was preceded by an agreement between Canada and the United States called the U.S-Canada Free-Trade Agreement (FTA) which was effective on January 1, 1989, and is now suspended due to NAFTA.

<quoted text>Yeah right keeping 60 and 70 year old coal fired plants makes a lot of sense...not. Retooling these plants would cost more than they're worth. New energy efficient plants geared toward smarter carbon catching and generation of electrical output is the only way to go. Again regressive thinking leads to more waste of energy and money! Progress,progress,and more progress!
Plus rebuilding our electrical grid would seem a wise investment don't you think?
I work for a gas pipeline company that is 65 years old and like the automobile industry or any industry that is still in business do not resemble the company 65 years ago nor do they have any of the equipment they started with.
The gas pipeline company and the coal-fired power plants have modernized, replaced and upgraded their equipment several times over the years.
If there is a coal fired power plant near you go and take a tour of the facility.
If you weren’t a Democrat you would take pride in how efficient and clean they operate.
Sorry Efficient!! I know how coal companies circumvent rules and regulations...smoke and mirrors and other means.I've see it since I was old enough to carry a coal bucket and I PERSONALLY KNOW OSHA AND MINE INSPECTORS! Some go by the book and some go by something else! Catch my drift?
And yes there is a plant within 5 miles of my home!
Of which I personally know over half the employees. It has nothing to do with my politics sorry to disappoint you on that assumption.
Would you want an 70 year old hospital trying to renovate or would a new one better to ease your worry about heath-care?
Old cobbled-up schools or new ones?
BTW me being a Democrat has nothing to do with my pride in wanting a state-of-the-art facility in any company to serve America in a top notch capability!
Also I'm for using our natural resources but do it in a responsible manner for as long as we can sustain that ability!

<quoted text> So, you are a veteran who is going to be voting for Romney? Are you aware that Romney, who was a draft-dodger is ALSO not commemorating D-Day? I guess that's okay with you however,'eh? If it's shameful that President Obama is not commemorating D-Day,it ought to be equally shameful for Romney. At least Obama never evaded military service at a time of war, as did Romney and his sons. It is also notable, in a disturbing way, that the Fox Nationalists took the extra step to complain about the political fallout from not commemorating this anniversary. That is really all they think about. Politics is far more important to them than principle. Had Obama held a D-Day event, the response from Fox would undoubtedly have been that he was exploiting it for political gain and using the troops for a photo-op.
Fox News can be relied upon for only one thing: Strictly one-side, partisan propaganda for the benefit of Republicans and the detriment of Democrats. Roger Ailes works for the RNC, or perhaps vice versa. It’s hard to tell.
For the record, both Obama and Romney tweeted memorials to D-Day participants and survivors.
The only thing you proved is that you are full of a tremendous amount of hot air, Windy. Where do you get your facts? Obviously from Rachael Madcow on PMSNBC. lol

Please attempt to do the following things and maybe, just maybe, people will take at least some of your future posts seriously. Don't hold your breath (that much hot air will kill ya!) waiting for any type of respect concerning such a silly post.

1. Do your homework. Research. Obviously you go to your favorite shit stirring commentator or you find a site on the net that tells you what you want to believe and you take their word as gospel rather than doing what most adults and high school kids do...educate yourself before spewing talking head points than can be so easily skewed.

When will people, such as yourself, actually mature? You are playing follow the leader with the lame excuses and Obama's lame blame game. In case you aren't aware...Barrack Hussein Obama is our president. Romney is not our president...yet! Everything Obama is questioned about or any action he does or doesn't do is always followed by the same old lame blame game excuse. Whaaaaaa, Bush did it too. Whaaaaaa, Romney didn't do it either. Whaaaaaa! That inexcusable excuse changed the fact that the sitting president of the United States of America will not commemorate D-Day...how? lol Speak up...how?

It's time for you people to put on your big boy and girl panties and own your own crap. Stop crying and making excuses. You would think that at least some of you morons would have figured out by now that your lame blame game isn't working and it only set you up for ridicule down the road. lol

Here's an example if you are still confused a bit. Florida Representative Debbie Wasserman Shultz was on CNN and she arrogantly claimed the Wisconsin recall vote would be a dry run for the November presidential election. When her "side" lost she came back crying and blaming. She is a rabid, er avid, Obama supporter. NOW she claims that the republicans had outside dollars coming into Wisconsin that tipped the scales in their favor and that is why Governor Walker is still Governor. Wait. Huh? WTF? How many outside and local union dollars have been spent since THEY decided to take a stand and challenge the republican Governor that has some amazing accomplishments for Wisconsin on his in just a short time? The unions poured out huge amounts of money to get the protests started and to occupy Wisconsin's Capitol and to get the groundwork started for the costly recall process. Schultz feels as though her side was "outspent". lol That's her excuse story and she is sticking with it. Evidently you get your info from those type of crybaby lame blamers. Whatever gets you through your day Mrs. Wendy. LMMFAO

Forget Romney!
Blast OBAMA....
What about Bush?
Please wait... Reply » Bush administration commemorated D-Day in 2001 and 2004, but spent others in meetings and at least one concert. White House archives of June 6 for each year President Bush was in office only show Bush commemorating D-Day in 2001 and 2004. In 2001, Bush dedicated a D-Day memorial in Virginia, and in 2004, he went to Normandy to mark the 60th anniversary of D-Day. There are no "news" references to D-Day in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, or 2008.
Do a little research once in awhile before you condemn others huh?

The question wouldn't be "old cobbled up schools" and "70 year old hospitals" OR "new ones"-it's closing down the "older" coal fired power plants and NOT opening any new ones. The NEW natural gas plants etc won't be online before the coal plants close.

And even the "new" coal plants we've built in the past dozen years or so are going to have to raise their prices as their costs per unit of coal raised 700%-800% thanks to Obama's EPA over reach.

As for your talk on OSHA and mine inspectors-what good is more regulations going to do, if we don't enforce the ones we currently have on the books anyway? or do we need someone to regulate the regulators, and so on and so forth?

If you know about all of these rule violations, regulation breaking of the coal companies, why not turn them over to the authorities? Or are we back to - the authorities wouldn't do anything? If so, see the above.
