    Only because you're an unhinged hack, who doesn't recognize that technology doesn't stand still and that virtually no field is immune from the fact.

    so taxes and regulations dont effect manufacturing like the right has claimed for decades?

    Personally I found the graphic a bit of a muddle, but my guess is that their point is 1979 saw the all time high in US manufacturing employment--
    [​IMG]
    --which had come with the Carter malaise with of double digit inflation/unemployment. Fortunately those days are behind us; we've now cut the payrolls by half and America is soooo much better off.

    Over the decades since 1979--
    [​IMG]
    --we've doubled production using only half the workforce. What's not to like? Our soaring productivity has really made America stronger and more powerful ---average real household wealth has increased by 70% while average household real incomes have doubled! All this during a time when the USSR (our biggest foreign problem back then) simply evaporated.

    trace the chart acrossed the years clowns.

    the claim you make about about dems being bad for manufacturing are proven false.

    regulations and taxes under dems dont hamper the jobs
