    Looks like Socialism is taking the World lead, and Capitalism is headed into the shitter. I will be curious to see how the cons will play this bad news as Socialism kicks their ass, and countries like Russia & China just said FU to the USD as a trade dollar. All the kings capitalist men are setting on their money & preparing to depart America, no right winged loyalty huh? Interesting how a little country like Germany is exporting more Socialist products to the world than the big bad American capitalists are. Being so much smaller, they must have those factories humming, while American continues to shut down and lay off. What do you make of that? And the Socialists are doing it working under 40 hour weeks, taking mandatory 45 day paid vacations, and twice as many paid holidays, full medical and retirement, than poor capitalist Americans experience. So our factories must be barely turning over.

    EXPORTS

    1 World $16.280.000.000.000
    2 European Union $1.952.000.000.000
    3 Germany $1.530.000.000.000
    4 China $1.465.000.000.000
    5 United States $1.377.000.000.000
    6 Japan $776.800.000.000

    All this means is that the U.S. is becoming less of a manufacturing society and more of a service oriented society, which isn't news to anyone who has paid attention the last ten years.

    I would actually take more time to get into detail, but I've read enough of your crap to know that you are an intellectual dipshit and my time would pretty much be wasted.

    They're beginning to reverse that trend by going back to conservatism. They're cutting spending instead of spending like they've been doing.

    Oh, so who are we servicing? Afghanistan? No one is thinking service is going to cut it, so who you listening to??

    The U.S. Service Economy Cannot Keep Our Country Afloat Indefinitely

    Many feel that the transition to a service-based economy heralds a new and prosperous future for the U.S. As far as services vs. goods industries, there are many differences that are clearly obvious. Regardless of these differences, however, it should be noted that our services surplus with the rest of the world only accounts for less than 10 percent of our goods deficit. In other words our goods deficit is 10 times larger than our services surplus which should indicate our ability to sustain global trade on the basis of a service economy.

    * Services don’t export as well as goods – retail, hospitality, health care, government, and education are all local businesses. These make up much of the services industry.

    * Services are labor intensive and not capital intensive therefore easy to relocate and outsource computer and electrical engineering, R&D and science, law, advertising and accounting are all being outsourced. This has been seen as our jobs have been outsourced to India.

    * Services require tremendous training and expertise – to be an expert in a field of service it requires expensive training for a long period of time and requires a high level of intelligence – not everyone will be capable of being an "expert."

    * Services do not provide as much valued added – compare retail workers in Wal-Mart to factory workers at GM – one is ringing up a finished product at a check-out counter and the other is helping to turn raw materials into a finished product that can be sold anywhere in the world.

    * Services cannot leverage capital – the amount of machines and technology used in goods production is much greater than in services these machines have the benefit of hundreds of thousands of hours of refinement and efficiency and can be run night and day whereas services businesses are limited by the productivity, efficiency and skill of single-generation humans.

    Yeah, they are starting to move away from socialism. They are finally realizing how much of a failure it really is.

    You halfwits do realize that even the "Right-wing" parties in Europe are analogous to moderate Democrats (eg, Obama), don't you?

    Yeah, that is because Germans kicked their asses and told them to stay the fuck out. Too bad Bush didn't have the guts to do that to Mexicans in 8 years, and this Twinkie `O` boy is emulating him.

    But commies? Germany is socialist, not communist. You need to move to the other side of the other pond to find you commie loven friends who loan you trillions & denounce your usd. But hey, even the commies are whipping your ass. How do you explain that with your good ol capitalism running the show at home?:eusa_angel:

    Move away you say? Would that be like cutting military spending and taxing the shit out of corporations, while maintaining social programs, and increasing spending to raise production?? Ah, who knows, maybe your cartoons have some mumbo jumbo in them.
