    :asshole: I would like to nominate this moron for Ahole of 2006. Why wait?

    His blurb on 20/2o proved to me that the Editors are asleep at ABC and that Stossel is a waste of flesh, Outsourcing Jobs from America, the myth behind it.

    He contends that outsourcing jobs is not bad for America, but great.. He believes that it strengthens the US..


    I won't waste my time to argue why he is wrong..

    I liked a lot of his stuff earlier, and he makes some good libertarian points. I disagree on outsourcing. It does NOT make America better. I'm with my man Pat Buchanan on that one.

    Outsourcing good?

    Sounds like something I heard from a certain administration that begins with a *b and ends with a *ush.
    "Outsourcing....that's a good thing"

    Outsourcing means cheaper goods for consumers. How is that bad?

    The problem with outsourcing is that endless corporate regulations and an oppressive tax system have made working entirely within the U.S. unprofitable. If this keeps up, we won't be able to compete in the world market. If you want the jobs to come back, lift the regulations and end corporate income tax. Corporations can't pay taxes, anyway, and any tax against them is really a tax on the consumers. Some regulation is good for all involved, but the system we have right now is just oppressive.

    I thought that way long before I heard Boortz, though I never thought anything so radical as eliminating the income tax was possible until I started listening to Boortz. I pretty much grew up thinking income tax had always been around.
