Jobless Recovery

"They're calling it a jobless recovery. Wrong. Millions of jobs are being created. They're just not being created here in the United States.

"The reasons can be traced to these four acronyms: NAFTA, GATT, WTO, PNTR. These are the trade treaties and global institutions that have permitted the historic substitution of foreign labor for American labor, to the enrichment of the transnational companies that look upon the Congress as a wholly owned subsidiary."


Poll #261286 Guess who said it.

Do you agree?

Heck yeah I do!
3(27.3%)
Pretty much.
3(27.3%)
Whatever.
2(18.2%)
Not really.
2(18.2%)
Heck no!
1(9.1%)

Don't research it, just shoot from the hip. Who do you think authored the quote above?

You might be interested in this hit piece on Buchanan I just read:

http://www.fair.org/extra/9605/buchanan.html

According to its authors, "And if the mainstream media rejection of Buchanan's candidacy really had to do with ties to hate groups, then journalists would have made more out of the fact that a high-level advisor to Steve Forbes, Thomas Ellis, is a former director of the Pioneer Fund, a foundation that exists to support research into the genetic inferiority of blacks."

I'd never heard of the Pioneer Fund, so I poked around their website.

http://www.pioneerfund.org

Credo
The Pioneer Fund is dedicated to furthering the scientific study of human ability and diversity. We are resolved to promoting better understanding of our similarities, our differences, our past, and our future through scientific research and dissemination of that information to the public – no matter how upsetting those findings may be to any entrenched religious or political dogmas. We believe that ignorance, fear of knowledge, and suppression of academic freedom have never served humanity well, and that we should resist any encroachments on scholarship or the chilling effect of any form of political correctness or orthodoxy. We believe that the discoveries supported by our grants constitute important contributions to the behavioral sciences. Only by continuing research on human variation will we be able to understand fully what it means to be human.
I strongly agree with the bit I put in bold type.

I only know this because the outward disparity was commented on by a friend. Though I think a little internal criticism and navel gazing would not hurt the major parties.

Yeah, the quote is greatly in error. It's like saying rain falls from the sky because the clouds aren't in buckets and missing the whole point about gravity. In this analogy, of course, gravity is standing in for comparative advantage, and the way to stem the tide of job loss is to further depreciate the dollar (while instituting a federal-level job retraining and re-employment push), not retreat behind an absolutely pig-ignorant protectionist wall.
