It is worse than I thought. This list should be used in a campaign ad.

2. Outsourcing is economic treason.
A slow motion war on U.S. citizens.

3. Some really convoluted logic
http://www.twincities.com/mld/twincities/news/editorial...
(near the bottom)

"People need to realize that offshoring is a natural part of our capitalistic, free-market society. Second and Third World countries specialize in cheap human labor. While this takes away jobs from us in the short term, demand in these countries for capital equipment (which these countries have no means of producing or are very expensive for them to produce) will increase. These countries will now need a new trade partner, and that is where the U.S. comes in. Our economy will shift to production of capital goods, such as machinery creating a new job boom, and the people who lost their jobs will be employed again. This is a never-ending cycle called trade and it benefits all."

And they won't be going to countries with dollar-an-hour machinists to get their production equipment?

4. Dow Industrials Off-Shoring

AT&T Corp. (NYSE: T)
Boeing (NYSE: BA)
Caterpillar (NYSE: CAT)
Citigroup (NYSE: C)
Coca Cola (NYSE: KO)
Disney (NYSE: DIS)
DuPont (NYSE: DD)
Eastman Kodak (NYSE: EK)
Exxon-Mobil (NYSE: XOM)
General Electric (NYSE: GE)
General Motors (NYSE: GM)
Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HWP)

Home Depot (NYSE: HD)
Honeywell (NYSE: HON)
IBM (NYSE: IBM)
Intel (Nasdaq: INTC)
International Paper (NYSE: IP)
Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ)

McDonald's (NYSE: MCD)

5. And people still buy billions of $$$ worth of Dell computers....
Edited on Sat Feb-21-04 12:20 PM by OneTwentyoFive
Mike Dell pays himself over $$$80 MILLION per year but shipped the tech support to India,ya know...had to do a little cost cutting to keep the company afloat.

He's averaged a compensation package over the last six years that hits $87 million. Steve Jobs over at Apple got 116 million a couple of years back. Another outrage is Larry Ellison at Oracle,he used to be the highest paid CEO anywhere,anytime and yet they have to ship jobs overseas.

This is GD outrageous,I can't believe anyone supports a company that does business like that. Screw em...buy your next computer from someone local that helps the economy and keeps jobs here.

7. And some can be companies that own other companies.....
You look at Textron and think maybe they have some leaf blowers or weed eaters made in China or Mexico but the fact is they also own Cessna Aircraft.

Their outsourcing their asses off. Wings that used to be made for Citations six miles from where I live are now made in Ireland,Sweden or somewhere and then boxed up and sent BACK to Wichita.

Thats cost cutting?? My ass it is.....

8. Which Fed agency is aiding and abetting them?
My bet is that some agency in Don Evans' Commerce Department or elsewhere in the Doofus Administration is burning through millions of U.S. tax dollars helping these companies fuck U.S. taxpayers out of their jobs. Somebody should be looking into this. Maybe Lou could provide some leads.
