<quoted text>Well, THAT is an endorsement! Why should your neighbor be your grocer, hardware man or clothier when an HUGE, impersonal, global conglomerate can do all those things AND pay wages so low their *employees* can qualify for welfare? Eff all that American entrepreneurship! Unless WalMart sells that, that is....
I live 15 miles from a small town (college town)
Growing up there were several clothing stores,
a nice shoe store, a store that sold linens, towels
and household goods.
In the mid 80's a Wal Mart was put in in the Oak Hill/
Fayetteville area. About 45 miles away.
Right after all of these stores had to close.

Right now...today we have to drive 45-65 miles just
to buy 1 pair of jeans, a pair of shoes or anything
for the household.

Clinton signing NAFTA was probably the single biggest union buster in this country. Virtually every manufacturer of chains, sprockets, belts (like v-belts and flat conveyor belting), hubs, bearings and bearing units, etc (basically everything you would see in a factory that is used to convey, fab and build products) moved to Mexico within 1-2 years.
You can blather all day long and disagree with that as much as you want but it won't change the facts; but I am in this industry and watched it unfold as it happened.
Almost all of my stock orders come from Mexico, some from Canada and the rest (very very few) from China.
Clinton/NAFTA also burst the tech bubble (my former business). There were thousands of high-tech small parts suppliers that fled the US after NAFTA and Clinton's (2000) China free trade agreement (Walmart, anyone?).
Throw in the Dodd/Frank Fair Housing Act which led to the housing collapse and you have the democrat's perfect prescription for economic disaster.
Neither Bush or Obama had/have the vision to right the course.
Re-instituting republican-conservative pro US business policies is the only way out of this mess.

<quoted text>1. Wal-Mart destroys more jobs than it creates. A new Wal-Mart destroys jobs by putting local merchants out of business. The jobs Wal-Mart creates are fewer, lower-paying and mostly part-time.
2. Wal-Mart burdens public health care programs. Most jobs at Wal-Mart have little or no health benefits. Wal-Mart encourages its workers to seek public assistance for their health care. In Georgia, 10,000 children of Wal-Mart employees were enrolled in the public health insurance program.
3. Wal-Mart exploits workers. The average hourly worker makes just $18,000 dollars a year. Meanwhile, in 2002, the corporation raked in $6.6 billion in profits. Wal-Mart has known for years that many of its stores violate child labor laws and state regulations requiring work breaks - but has done little, if anything, to stop it
4. Wal-Mart degrades the environment. The federal government charged Wal-Mart with violating the Clean Water Act in 17 locations across the country. Run-off from Wal-Mart construction sites polluted drinking water, streams and lakes. To settle the charges Wal-Mart agreed to pay a $1 million dollar fine
Proponents of Wal-Mart tout their low prices - and the positive impact they have on the purchasing power of consumers. But Wal-Mart is able to provide low prices because they are heavily subsidized by taxpayers. In addition to relying on public health care for their employees, Wal-Mart has benefited from over $1 billion in economic development subsidies
But then again, you're a Patriot Denny!

Sounds good - anything past that statement for a plan?

Got news for you - business don't operate like that anymore.

Simply holding up a sign that says "China Sucks" isn't going to bring $20 an hour jobs back to US soil.

Companies are global now. They spread their manufacturing all over the place. They depend more on logistics to pull their profits in place than the cost of manufacturing - which they side step by choosing cheaper than normal labor communities. A few have risen in the US (BMW, Honda, Kia, etc.) but mostly in the SE where unemployment is high and labor is cheap.

If you want to blame anyone for this mess, blame Dr. Demming for giving the Japanese (and ultimely China and Korea) their "Kaizen." Also, the Japanese (re: Oriental) lack a certain creativeness (some thought it was a lack of a gene), and generally focused more on copying back in the 60-70's. Nowadays, they have some of the best engineers in the world - wanna' know why? They were all schooled in the US. ;)

Here's a great book he wrote titled, "If Japan can...why can't we?"

Tell you what I don't support, name calling. You don't like POTUS, fine, but he is still POTUS.

You want to talk how money is handled in this country, how about corporate welfare, that's the biggest handout of all. Private welfare is a drop in the bucket by comparision.

I only came here to see what DW had to say and then I saw your Comrad comment. Really, it's such a silly thing to say.

Speaking of hate, which BTW I wasn't, I don't hate anyone, it's such a negative emotion. BTW2, I wasn't talking about Ferrerman either.......

You know Socialism is just another "catch" word that
really doesn't mean anything.
He's not taking anything from anyone as far as I can
see. What he did do was extend the Bush tax cuts which
are totally ridiculous. Allowing the very rich to get
out of paying taxes all the while taxing the shit out
of what used to be middle class (like my family).
