GE: economic traitors....

[ Edited ]

Recall a few weeks ago I posted a thread talking about how GE(General Electric) had outsourced their entire hi-tech medical device industry to China, or were expanding it in China while laying off here or something like that.

 

Well -- now GE, which paid no federal taxes last year, & whose CEO is on Obama's jobs council....has teamed up with China to build airplanes. The problem is they're going to directly challenge Boeing. Airbus is a European-subsidized company that is kicking ass all over the world. And now we have to worry about this.

 

Don't get me wrong, I actually don't like Boeing too much but they're still an American company. I can't think of another term besides treason. Free trade is one thing but they're going to **beast** give away military secrets & high tech technology to the Chinese govt.

I used to joke about this but I'm beginning to actually wonder - should I immigrate to China? They're cleaning us out.....

GE has been traitors for years, GE has done business with Iranian interests for the past ten or more years!

It's not a surprise they are moving everything to China and leaving us out in the cold.

 

The only reason China is cleaning the United States out is because we have a bunch of cowards for politicians!

I would make trade tariffs so high for Chinese goods that I would bleed every company in China dry as dust!

Then I would turn around and incentives any company that wanted to come back to the U.S and ship goods over seas with the lowest tariffs that this country has ever known.

 

But be damned sure I would make life shipping goods into this country hell for companies around the world and especially those countries who truly hate our guts to begin with like China.

i heard a good analogy that explains our global economic standing.

 

other countries use traders and economists to handle their foreign trade agreements. we use diplomats. guess who can put together a more advantageous trade agreement?

ITT: everyone is an economic traitor.

 

Move your company to China because regulatory costs and taxes are too high? Traitor!

 

Manufacture in America but don't pay your employees $25/hour plus full benefits? Traitor!

 

All the rabblerabble is nice and all, but the fact still remains that for the time being if you're educated you can make a great living in America far beyond the standard in China. The sad part is, no one wants an education, despite it being practically free via the government and various scholarships.

maybe that's how he got his wife :smileyvery-happy:

I agree with this statement to a certian point because it seems like our economists even have sh!t for grey matter, I mean look at our economy right now!

*rolls eyes*

 

Do you even know that the average tuition for college is in this country?

Do you know that 11 years ago when I graduated from High School that the advice I was given was to take three years at a local Vocational College become certified as an Auto Body Tech and make more money in a year than most college graduates will ever see in the same year?

Do you also know that something on order of 2 million well educated college graduates can't find a job doing anything other than raking muck or flipping burgers right now?

 

One more for the road before I go from this thread, do you also know that a recent study of colleges came out recently saying that the education recieved from any given college is not worth the money you invest in it?

 

I can get my surface mining lisence in the span of a couple classes, jump in a Komatsu not 4 miles from my home here and be making a starting wage of $15 an hour!

If I wanted to better myself I could become a Blasting Tech at the mine and start out at $22 an hour!

 

Fuck college! It's not helping this country because all our high paying jobs went to China!

 

Yes it's the behavior of a traitor company leaving the states where competent people who's education demand a high paying job, but instead these companies go where they get ignorant people who are enslaved for mere cents on our dollar to do the job.

 

Blah, blah, blah! I love your Conservative attitude of as long as the product gets made who cares if it fails in the span of a week, just as long as we stay rich the people poor all is good!

GE has to many problems to name. Least of all is that they are basically giving Obama a BJ and then turn around and stab him in the back. Obama really needs to be less friendly with GE if only to help his image. Having a massive corporation on your team while constantly blasting these corporations for not paying enough in taxes only to have GE pay zero in taxes last year is really not good for his image. Makes it look like pure crony capitalism/politics.


That said GE sees a massive weakness in Boeing, and they have one. Their Union and the NLRB is refusing to let Boing open up a new factory in South Carolina which would add anywhere between 6 and 10 thousand new jobs down there. It really is a disgrace.

With how we are supposed to be all about jobs its no wonder none are being made. When you have the constant threat of taxes and then when you actually try to expand get slapped by unions its no wonder we arent growing.

It really is a disgrace to this administration and the NLRB.
