"I assumed you'd have this printed in China, where they have essentially no emissions standards, safety standards or worker safety nets."

If we're all ok with skipping the pretty stuff above to get lower prices, why can't we skip all that stuff in the US too? If all the above is necessary when manufacturing a product, why do we allow foreign firms to compete without providing it?

Or are we alright with destroying the planet and treating people like chattel, so long as it's sufficiently far from where we live?

Next panel.... "Oh..... so you're sending the job overseas because they can do it for half price by means of currency manipulation, no emission standards and no wage standards?? Sorry to hear that. (phone hangs up)
Next panel.... "Looks like we're going to have to go ahead and shut the plant down, lay off all our people and sell our equipment to overseas exporters for pennies on the dollar"

Last Panel..... (Wakes up in bed next to wife out of a horrible dream) .... "I just had a horrible nightmare that Hillary won the election. Thank god that didn't happen!

By the way... we won that bid and got that big job in today .... Looks like we are going to be able to get through another Christmas without any layoffs."

Maybe because they can just say they comply with all that good stuff? For instance, there was a big problem with a well-known flooring company in the U.S. whose imported wood flooring had all sorts of chemicals in it that it wasn't supposed to have. There was an expose in which a journalist with a hidden camera posed as a buyer in China. The Chinese salesman said they could stamp his shipment with any kind of compliance labels the buyer wanted, nevermind what was actually in the flooring.

Just like all those Carrier jobs that got saved.
Oh, wait...

Well, I'm sure Carrier will give back that $7 Million tax break they got to save those jobs. ;)

In fairness to Trump... that deal was made WAAAYYYY before he was elected. Guess the Status Quo Group would be happy if more Americans were laid off?

Bottom line is, by every metric, the economy here is starting to pump thanks to the new policies..... How is that a bad thing?

iI think they installed worker safety nets a few years ago - for those workers who jump from the roof to commit suicide.

So then why was Trump taking credit for the whole Carrier thing? The amount of lies and the level of hypocrisy is unbelievable...blatant, too! Sadly, it seems his supporters think he can do no wrong.

OH MY! :eek: Welcome to the forum. Came for the print, stayed for the politics. They are both equally as fun for me.

Trump can do NO wrong??? When was ANYBODY except a few right wingers ever critical of Obama or Hillary. You want to talk hypocrisy? It would take me hours to list all the scandals and dead people that surround them and CRICKETS from the MSM. I mean at the small end... she had Donna Brazille steal debate questions for her!!!! Can you even imagine if Trump did that???? WOW... the world news network would explode!!! Remember when he was on tape from 10 years ago talking to another guy IN PRIVATE and said "Grab that pu$$y"??? BILL CLINTON LITTERALLY HAD AN INTERN UNDER HIS DESK IN THE OVAL OFFICE!!!! and then LIED about it under oath!!! Just try to juxtapose the moral equivalency of those two things. "Depends on what your definition of IS IS" Remember that?

Trump seems to be able to do no wrong because all of the fake news stories from the Washington post, ny times and CNN all keep turning out to be made up lies. And according to Newsweek article today Trumps approval rating is HIGHER than Slick Willy Clinton at this point in his presidency.

People like Trump because he is a regular guy and not some sleazy politician. Fact is that if Trump had run as a Democrat.... and run on the EXACT SAME issues.... he still would have won and all the Dems would be standing up for everything he stands for just because he had a "D" next to his name rather than an "R". There are some great interview videos of college students by a group called campus reform that blatantly illustrate my point.

Here is a GREAT 5 minute video about the history of the democrat party by PragerU. Anybody who identifies as a dem should watch it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_a7dQXilCo

Also look into "Seth Rich".... the REAL DNC leaker.... not Russia.

Hahahah thanks for the welcome, Kringle! :). As a matter of fact, I do love the forum for the great, insightful print related information. However, I have to admit that the reason I decided to sign up was to be able to respond to your comment(s). I have been lurking around long enough to know that you certainly aren't shy about sharing your opinions on politics.

A few things - first of all, I did not bring up Obama, Hillary or Bill Clinton at all. You did. I was only making a comment about Trump. I've noticed that every time someone citicizes Trump, his defenders will quickly jump to Hilary or Obama or anyone else, for that matter. "Can you even imagine if Trump did that????" Can YOU even imagine if Obama said or did any of the things Trump has said and done??? Seriously, what do you think would happen? But, again, I was only talking about your beloved, "regular guy" Trump. LOL, I can't believe you referred to him as a regular guy. Are you for real? That is just plain laughable. And sleazy? Yes, most definitely - unless you don't consider the "grab them by the p..." comment sleazy. Sure, sure, everything that contradicts or questions Trump is fake news lol. Where does he get his news from, exactly?

Finally, just so you know, I am neither Democrat nor Republican. I understand the frustration with the system and with politicians in general. But to see Trump and say, "yeah, that's the guy I want to be the next President of the U.S.", that's incredibly odd to me and wrong in so many ways. He is a liar, a hypocrite, wildly unqualified to be president, filled his cabinet with wall street people, appointed the worst possible people for leadership positions, has countless conflicts of interest, can't get off of Twitter, behaves like a 10 year old child...he's an embarrassment to this country.

SERIOUSLY.. How did Trump get elected.. You can't see it? Are you insane? Look at the alternatives that we had to choose from. All limp wristed NWO types, liars and hypocrites ready to sell US sovereignty to the highest bidder. Trump was the ONLY option available to demonstrate the rugged individuality that originally made this country great. Is he the perfect person for the position? Probably not. But you're missing the essential point.. HE WAS THE ONLY ONE - WITH A RUGGED INDIVIDUAL PERSONALITY - WITH THE MINDSET OF *YES WE CAN BE GREAT* WHO STOOD UP AND VOLUNTEERED TO TAKE THE ABUSE AND TORMENT THAT COMES WITH THE JOB. Knowing that the extreme left leaning communistic NWO supporting main stream media would be constantly on his back. In that context, Trump was the only sane choice. The rest of your own rant is just your opinion. And we all know what that resembles.. Something everyone possesses .

I don't remember all your presidents, but he is not your first embarrassment: before him were at least Reagan and the pair of Bush's (especially Junior!!!)... so probably now US people begin to get used to embarrassing presidents :rolleyes:



************


*YES WE CAN BE GREAT*
There is something you should understand: the USA WERE a great country... but now with most of the jobs being outsourced to India/Asia to allow the shareholders to get more and more money, USA has become a poor country...

... and if the billionaires (like Trump) and the Wall-Street guys (like his team) keep on ruling the country by sucking and stealing all the resources from the people living in USA (and in some other western countries like mine) to become more and more richer, soon the USA (and some other western countries like mine) will become third world countries.

You know how I know you don't know what you are talking about? This sentence - all you did was name ever Republican President in modern times. I'm not a Republican but I can also be impartial enough to see through your list. You don't think Clinton was an embarrassment trying to weasel his way out of lying about cheating on his wife? How about Truman compensating for his "low self-esteem" by dropping a nuclear bomb on Japan....twice?
