Military Recruits Would Be Required To Buy Shoes 'Made in USA' Under New Bill

How about repeal of PNTR China that is funding the Chinese military and space program and to boot provides the technology and manufacturing know-how as well. PNTR China ratified by the U.S. Congress in 2000 is TREASON.

Honoring Veterans As Monuments Decay, Funds Dry Up

It is appalling that the U.S. Congress and White House have been sending our troops to foreign lands to sacrifice their young lives. At the same time the these same institutions are allowing Corporate America and U.S. Chamber of Commerce not only to fund but also provide the technology, manufacturing know-how to China and to boot the training of Chinese engineers and technicians. All these with dual applications; commercial and military.

MFN China, the predecessor of PNTR China, was suspended due to transfer of sensitive military technology. With that concern the U.S. Congress made MFN China permanent (PNTR China) in 2000 at the insistence of Corporate America, U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Ivy League economists. Now the Chinese has a potent military and a robustly improved space program.

I am a Veteran and know that PNTR China is TREASON. PNTR China is aiding and abetting the enemy.

Military Commissaries To Close Mondays Due To Sequestration

CaliforniaDefender,

"Military Commissaries To Close Mondays Due To Sequestration", one of the negative effects of PNTR China due to trillions in budget deficit. You are right they carry Chinese goods which equates to U.S. service members funding the enemy just like the rest of us.

PNTR China is TREASON and need to be repealed. MFN China, the predecessor of PNTR China, was suspended due to transfer of sensitive military technology. With that concern the U.S. Congress made MFN China permanent (PNTR China) in 2000 at the insistence of Corporate America, U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Ivy League economists.

Military Commissaries To Close Mondays Due To Sequestration

You wrote "It is a redistribution of wealth and quite unfair to American taxpayers and businesses."

I am a Veteran and see PNTR China as TREASON.

PNTR China is the largest transfer of wealth program the U.S. Congress and the White House enacted in 2000. What used to go to government coffers and American workers/middle-class went to the pockets of CEOs in the form of billions in bonuses, members of the U.S. Congress and residents of the White House in the form of campaign contribution (Bribe in layman's term) and to China who is now growing its military and space program (We now can't afford).

PNTR China allowed Corporate America and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to transfer America's advantage in Science and Technology, research and manufacturing know-how and to boot the training of Chinese engineers and technicians. All these with dual applications; commercial and military.

PNTR China resulted in millions of American workers loosing their jobs, decrease in import tax revenue and drastic reduction in the individual and business tax base for income tax revenue and Social Security and Medicare funding. Since the onset of NAFTA in 1994 and PNTR China in 2000 the cumulative negative balance of trade amounts to 7.9 trillion dollars. Trillions in budget deficit at the Federal, State and Local levels and one of the negative results; cuts in educational funding.

City Considers Taxi Industry Overhaul Amid Reports Of Low Wages And Unsafe Cabs

JeanMarc,

You wrote "No one is forcing them to drive the taxis, no one is beating them to death, how dare you compare being gainfully employed to slavery? There is no comparison between slavery that took place in this country and taxi drivers working."

You need to look at the context of the terms being used. One can be employed but receiving slave wages. Wage slavery has been used to criticize economic exploitation which is what this article is all about.

Calif. Health Exchange Plans, Rates Announced

muchapoo1,
You wrote "I question how a country can force citizens to pay for health insurance and give it to illegals for free. You know that's going to happen."

It has been happening for years. People, illegals included, with no insurance go to the emergency room for treatment and cannot be denied and we all pay for that care. They cannot afford insurance let alone preventive care. When they get really sick the cost of the cure is a lot more than the cost of preventive care.

I was at a VA Regional office waiting room with another veteran who was complaining about the benefits undocumented aliens are receiving. I asked him if he knows what President Reagan did while in office to the undocumented alien problem. His reply was "he sent them back?". I had to refrain from laughing when I told him that Reagan legalized the undocumented aliens. That action attracted more of them to come. Now Obama would like to do the same which will attract more illegals knowing full well that they will eventually be given amnesty. Funny how politicians always use the word reform.
The Immigration Reform and Control Act enacted November6, 1986, the act in brief: [1]
- required employers to attest to their employees' immigration status.
-made it illegal to knowingly hire or recruit unauthorized immigrants.
-legalized certain seasonal agricultural illegal immigrants.
-legalized illegal immigrants who entered the United States before January 1, 1982 and had resided there continuously with the penalty of a fine, back taxes due, and admission of guilt. About three million illegal immigrants were granted legal status.

Forecast: If Vote Was Today, Immigration Reform Would Fail House

The undocumented is not our only problem. Do you know about the H1-B visa program passed by the U.S. Congress? This program allows Corporate America to hire foreign high-tech professionals if they cannot find qualified American high-tech workers. In Corporate America lingo, "Qualified" means someone willing to accept lower wages. If you look at the parking lots of Fortune 500 high-tech companies you will see hundreds if not thousand of Asian Indian engineers and programmers on H1-B visa. I know people who have been warned by their bosses that with the pay they are making they can be replaced by three or more Asian Indians.

Another visa program that takes away jobs from young Americans is the J1 visa program. This program provides seasonal foreign workers to fast food restaurants, ski resorts and theme parks. This is one of the major reasons for the very high unemployment of young adults.

Mexico Now A Latin American Leader In Tech Services

One of the negative results of the U.S. Congress, White House, Corporate America and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce concocted global economy. They came up with NAFTA, WTO and PNTR China with only corporate profit in mind without regard to the future economic and military status of the nation. All these are changing the U.S. from an industrialized nation with a strong technological and manufacturing base to a service economy with minimal multiplier effect in job creation. The U.S. is now like the State of Hawaii with mostly service type jobs with low pay and minimal benefits if any. Ever wonder why we have such a huge economic mess and trillions in budget deficit at the Federal, State and Local levels due to the drastic decrease in import, business and individual tax revenue and to boot the under funding of Social Security and Medicare.

PNTR China is TREASON and everyone who ratified, approved and supported it should be jailed. The military implication of PNTR China is scary.

MFN China, the predecessor of PNTR China, was suspended due to transfer of sensitive military technology. With that concern the U.S. Congress made MFN China permanent (PNTR China) in 2000 at the insistence of Corporate America, U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Ivy League economists.

Latinos Hardest Hit By Community College Class Shortages

PNTR China allowed Corporate America and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to transfer America's advantage in Science and Technology, research and manufacturing know-how and to boot the training of Chinese engineers and technicians. All these with dual applications; commercial and military.

Trillions in budget deficit at the Federal, State and Local levels and one of the negative results; cuts in educational funding.

PNTR China took away the government's stimulus spending tool during a recession. Now that consumer goods manufacturing is in China and the Third World consumer spending has a very minimal effect in the domestic economy due to the fact that jobs are created in China and the Third World to replenish consumer goods inventory.

What we pay for Chinese and Third World goods is not the actual cost of the goods. We have to factor in; trillions in negative balance of trade, trillions in budget deficit at the Federal, State and Local levels, the stress on the American workers/middle-class, employed and unemployed, immeasurable.

The military implication of PNTR China is scary.
