We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
So, liberal friends and neighbors, how’s everybody liking their one-size-fits-all, federally dominated model of health care this week? A wee bit less than you were liking it Monday morning, I’d wager. I understand, completely...
Interesting (lengthy) article.
It amazes how some can be so incensed over the treatment of animals - which includes their emotional needs - are usually the same that advocate sucking a child out of the womb in pieces, to be thrown in the trash for convenience sake.
"Mark Zuckerberg Group Not Giving Up, Urges Congress to Pass Amnesty ASAP.
- - - -
Whole entire swaths of techie products and services are being produced for the Silicone Valley mullahs by workers in Chinese and other Asian factories.
With most assembly work on our new high tech phones, tablets, cameras, computers and chips now completed by $0.85/hour high-productivity Asian workers (who have been danged glad to get those factory jobs in their own hometowns), the "labor" component of newtech product has been surpassingly low.
But it's looking more and more likely that we'll not be best friends with China for long, and so we'll probably be losing our access to the Asian sweatshops soon.
The techie mullahs start thinking about bringing all those jobs back home to our high-buck labor pool - they start thinking about trying to sell phones assembled by UAW workers - and they realize that, unless they can get the American consumer to expect to pay $15,000.00 for a smart phone, they're toast.
UNLESS . . . unless they can somehow assemble their very own Chinese sweatshop system here in the USA.
To do this, they need to find workers willing to accept Chinese wages - Malaysian wages - Korean wages - right here in Our Town.
So what better way to do this - what better way to establish and populate an entire domestic Third World - than to bring the entire underclass of Mexico up across our border and bus them out around the country to wherever has the quietly-new techie factories that have been built and now simply await Amnesty (if not the far simpler Open Borders.)
Why should Apple put its people through the rigors of trying to run a manufacturing line on the other side of the world when it can simply build and fill its own Incredibly Deprived Ghetto right here in River City?
Mark Zuckerberg just spent millions to buy up the properties near his home to make sure no people he doesn't approve of move near to him. It would appear that the Zuck likes a border wall around himself but no border walls for the peons.
So if Americans have FINALLY lost their faith in the government will they start taking back their power and reconstruct a limited government? Maybe if we use the same model for building a better pig...
