Isn't taking American jobs overseas unpatriotic?
Advertisements [?]
Big American corporations are taking manufacturing and other jobs overseas, robbing Americans of jobs.

Why isn't this considered the ultimate in unpatriotic actions?

In the big hoopla made recently regarding patriotism and the US flag being plastered everywhere, I started wondering about this...

Any thoughts about this? This really bothers me, especially after reading Howard Zinn.
