    Times 2 .. Its kind of like getting taxed on what you put in and let go if you follow.

    Companies that out source should get the shit taxed out of them and put up the fence they dont pay taxes and undermine our work force.

    I have no problem with a company moving offshore.

    Just so long as they don't expect to sell back the products to the USA.

    Satire but is it not true? and its still true no matter what you think of me.
    With less illegals here taking our jobs without paying taxes and taking every possible hand out the government offers ... and less companies doing business here, but hiring cheap labor else where ... would it not help our situation?

    Im not partial its the same when all the rich folks pick a state for residence for cheap taxes when they own multiple homes. They should pay all !

    Sorry guys. You have to join the future. Corporations and organizations have dislodged themselves from the state. It's called Globalization and it's going forward no matter what any country does.

    Nope. It isn't true. There going back home largely because the Jobs here have suddenly disappeared and they can get home free easily enough especially if you are single or the remainder of your family is still living in Mexico.

    Immigrants may hurt wages and create other problems but the work is done here. Outsourcing on the other hand sends both money, work, knowledge, and incentive out of here - training people to do the job here and then sending them back to India boggles my mind but I see it. The issue is complex and requires balance.

    You ain't really bright are ya pete?

    Satire doesn't necessarily have to be true.

    Might wanna take that white pride choker from around your neck......it's cutting off the common sense that is supposed to reach your brain.
