Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, May 27, 2019

Corporate America decided to close their American plants and open new plants in China. Corporate America decided to lay off multitudes of American workers and ruin entire American communities. And who profited from the destruction to American workers? It was the wealthy executives and shareholders of American corporations.

The only way you can live in a world without borders is if the american worker was brought down to the same standard of living as other countries.

Of course that is too abstract of an idea for your average capitalist, but it is basically what happened.

You are too smart to fall into the idiotic wingnut idea that if it ain't to the right of the Nazi party, then it's completely liberal. (I was wanting to make some pun about Lennon (John) and Lenin (Vladimir), but I couldn't come up with a good one.)

Yes, I remember back before you became a sell-out for the tea-party evangelical wingnuts, back when this off-shoring thing was just starting, we agreed on what was happening. And we were correct. I wonder now if you have to call the John Birch Society headquarters before you comment.

Too static and simplistic, but perhaps you might understand OpenBorders is no different than FreeTrade, especially when the immigrant sends his/her paycheck backhome.

Capitalist think in terms of dynamic complex adaptive systems; China, India have all raised their standard of living, and the US has continued its rise in standard of living.

It was imminent jobs went overseas, the delta between American factories (labor+factory) cost, and foreign factory costs was too much. So the government allowed our corporations to move overseas; rather than they go under and foreign companies dominate the international landscape.

I see nothing wrong with allowing this export of jobs to keep our factory costs inline, or just above RoW; The issue is its currently going too far the other way, and it needs to stop.

The amelioration of the trade deficit will be problematic from an inflationary perspective, best to keep it high, less the government collapse under the weight of interest and debt.

This is much closer to the truth, but it wasn't just "regulations", unionization also played part.

So, it's the workers fault for not having any say in corporate expansion or loyalty to employees? Most technical jobs are manned by "libs", and would daresay it's easily 10-1 if not even more skewed away from conservatives. You are saying that liberals don't want the jobs back to spite the workers or the corporations?

Several large corporations that I've worked for actively look for people who would unionize and fire them instantly. My mother was a union steward and one of her ex-coworkers was part of HR for a job I was just about to sign the NDA's to. She literally swooped into the room, grabbed the pen and asked me to follow her.. to the hall and out the back door. Her daughter and her friend were asking existing employees who would like to form a union, gave them fliers to put on their car.. all of which were fired. They do not want the technical sectors to unionize and would rather give our lives away. They have no loyalty or concept of society.

I had a conversation with a young woman who hates her job and wants to go back to college. I advised her to look for a STEM focused career. She suddenly she looked like she was a deer trapped in the high beams of an inbound car. She knew nothing of what I was talking about. I explained it to her. When I mentioned maths, she immediately went into the oh so common MAGAt complaint, "I hate math!"

MAGA hates manual labor but hates the idea of learning something new. They would rather digress and take a pay cut than progress and make more money doing something different. I knew I was going no where so I stopped wasting my time. This young woman was beautiful with nice natural bewbies destined to be MAGA ---- in 20 years. She's already 31 with 3 pre-teen children, one is 19 mos old. Most guys she'll find are losers who want nothing more than use her and has no future to offer her. Professional single guys who can dig her out of that hole won't because why deal with some other man's kids? Especially if the father's not paying child support? ---- --- is not worth that much suffering. She's stuck if she doesn't go to college.

The point? This is just one of the reason why MAGAts blame everyone else for their employment plight. You were warned in the 90's that the American business model was changing. You thought you could slide on by with working the factory floor and retire with a pension in 35 years like your parent. You were warned that manufacturing was dying; it was time to jump ship and learn a STEM focused career. It was the only thing paying any real money.

30 years have passed. Here you are blaming everyone else but yourselves and still won't go to college because "it's too hard."

Ladies, the only way professional men are going to look your way is if you're single, no children, and another professional. Big bewbies, blond hair and blue eyes just don't cut it anymore. For $1000 a night, professional men can call an escort when he feels lonely. Hell, professional "cuddle buddies" will be with him for less than that.

It was imminent jobs went overseas, the delta between American factories (labor+factory) cost, and foreign factory costs was too much. So the government allowed our corporations to move overseas; rather than they go under and foreign companies dominate the international landscape.

"Going under" was not the only option. American companies could have built plants overseas to compete with foreign companies in non US markets. Instead, they moved/built plants overseas and imported the goods back into the US. Of course this strategy would need to be coupled with tariffs on goods coming into the US from any source so as not to disrupt domestic manufacturing. Corporations didn't want to pay the tariffs on their off shored imported goods so the notion of free trade came into existence.

Though not in China's case, access to US markets was used as a foreign policy tool. It enabled our proxies (aka allies and friends) like South Korea, Japan and european countries to grow stronger at the expense of American workers. This is a great strategy immediately after war but it should come to an end once the economies of war torn countries recover. Those countries have been strong enough for a long time and no longer need to have unfettered access to US markets. I applaud Trump for taking on this outdated policy; just not the way that he is doing it.

Corporations sold out American workers and they were aided and abetted by out dated policy and POS politicians: republicans and democrats.

"The answer is plain to see, and it lies within our own shores. The fault belongs squarely with corporate America."

The fault belongs squarely with consumers. And if consumers are willing to go back to paying $200 for a 2-slice toaster or $300 for a mixer, someone will happily oblige them. As it stands, consumers appear to be quite happy being able to walk into a Wal Mart and buy a toaster and a mixer, all for a fraction of what it would have cost.

Uhh...on this point, Trump is really just parroting Bernie Sanders and a laundry list of other progressives trying to make excuses for why low skilled USans are unable to earn higher wages. I agree with you of course...all of this would have been predictable under any sort of free-market analysis. The only way to have limited it from happening would have been to create a closed economy whose intent was to provide jobs for low skilled labor at the expense, likely great expense, of everyone else.

On this matter, Trump is probably as far left as any president we've seen. Far more so than Clinton or Obama. They knew better...or were at least listening to those who did.

Why would you object to that?

Your reading comprehension is abysmal.

Also. Your end result analysis of open borders is wrong. The reason American corporations moved to Mexico or China or Indonesia or wherever, is because once you cross and imaginary line, you're not subject to the same rules and regulations you once were. You're not subject to the same wages, the same protections, the same safety nets.

The benefit of moving outside of our borders is hiring cheap labor and depriving American citizens those jobs.

Without borders there would only be a global economy. Minimum wage would be a global standard.

In the end, there will either be an equilibrium, or a collapse.

Poorer countries would lower the standard and you'd find your precious minimum wage would go to nothing.

You have some fantasy the standard would rise for the poorer countries but instead you would find there isn't enough resources to pay for it and the standard would drop for everyone.

It would be a race to the bottom.

In my scenario, it's a world without borders, therefore, there are no "countries". So everyone is subject to the same labor laws, minimum wage laws. There are no poorer countries to undercut wages.

The only reason China / Mexico/ India / Malaysia / etc... can undercut our wages is because our laws end at our boundaries, our borders. Which is why corporations have been, and are, setting up factories outside of America and overseas, to utilize their lack of labor laws and regulations.

Again, as I said up thread, your scenario is describing what's currently happening. There's nothing stopping poorer countries from lowering the standards and setting wages at $1 a week for their citizens.

It was of a king and his adviser looking down at a huge mob of people holding torches and pitchforks.

The adviser says, "Don't worry sir, we don't have to beat them all. We just have to convince the people with the torches that the people with the pitchforks are trying to take their torches away."

It's literally the logic that is tearing our nation, and the world, apart.

So then all that above was just you sharing a pipe dream?

It was in response to Nulli's dig at John Lennon's song "Imagine", and people (me) who are for open borders.

That was a pathetic post, too full of lies and stupidity to respond to.

In other words, it was spot on.

Clown,

What I imagine is all money would be spread evenly among all people of the earth and we'll live in peace and harmony.

Now we just need to spread the word and the everyone will understand.

All you have to do is tell them how the world should be.

Love love love......

pffffffft...............

Open borders? Wow.

I wouldnt want open boarders. I'm not like the rest of the world. My culture is different. My goals are different. And at the local level, a one world thing wouldnt work without force. People, by nature, are individualists. Your worldview may not be good for me. Real freedom comes from me being able to make my own world view.

People who want open borders?

Let's start at your front door.

Remove it and start letting anyone wander in and out however they please.
