I'm sure that anyone who watches Tweety, Larry O', or Rachael has seen this ad...

Folks, Zurich is dredging for our jobs. Its not like the canal will be used for more US manufacturing exports.

Fuck Zurich!

3. Yes.
And the most efficient and profitable way to enable more Chinese offshoring of our jobs. According to financial management/insurance group, Zurich, it must be done.

9. I have a friend who owrks at the port of Long Beach & he said this is what they fear the most
Edited on Wed Apr-06-11 10:05 PM by SoCalDem
even more than a deep water port in Baja California & fleets of Mexican trucks headed north.

why?

because ships that now have to dock in S Cal & have their contents trucked (or shipped by rail) back east, will no longer have to.. they will transit the canal and unload in Texas, Louisiana & Florida.

He's praying that his job lasts a few more years until he retires.
