The root of our problem is not any other country but our own politian's belief that other countries would not take advantage of our "global economics stance". We can be the "inventor nation" all they want but as long as your sending those inventions overseas to be manufactured someone over seas is going to reverse engineer those items then recreate them and manufacture them cheaper and without tariffs on incoming goods to balance pricing America and Americans are going to pay the price. Corperations do not care if their money comes from America, China, Russia, Iraq, Iran, or anywhere else in the world as long as the money comes in. If you honestly think they do your fooling yourself. Shareholders come from all over the world and it would not suprise me to find some of these shareholders to be fronts for some of the same groups we consider terrorists. Yes I am a bit Jaded. I am a laid off factory worker struggling to find work and getting more and more frustrated with how easily everyone is ignoring what is going on. Big business does not seem too worried about the fact they are losing manufacturing jobs right now but everyone with any clue about sociology and economics has to understand the cast pyramid. Pull enough blocks out from the bottom of the pyramid and the whole thing comes crumbling down. I just worry that they will not wake up to it soon enough.
