61. That's fine--that's the neoliberal "free trade" philosophy.
Edited on Thu Apr-03-08 01:58 PM by Romulox
I am saddened that the Democratic party has moved from the party of the people to the party of cheap labor, but I am obviously on the wrong side of history on this one.

My point is simply that it applies to you and your job too. As I said, that's why I support outsourcing of white collar jobs too. :hi:
