Giant Sucking Sound

Giant sucking sound?!  Can y’all hear it now?  Why is it the guys that actually make sense, the ones that would actually work for us never get close?

As for NAFTA, it was said that the winners were the consumers who would be given a greater variety of goods at cheaper prices, but the fact is if you don’t have a job, if you have to compete with slave wages and give up your first world standard of living, you lose.  Everything is expensive when there are no jobs.  Massive deficit, falling wages and benefits, bankrupt communities, high unemployment, and unilateral free trade with China.  Open borders with Mexico.  The only real mystery is why we were sold out.  Do we really want to wait until wages in Mexico and China rise to our decline?  Is it our goal to be 3rd World?

GM gets a bail out on your dime, and after closing Pontiac, Hummer, Saturn, and shutting down American plants, the start building in China, including a new $1.1 billion dollar factory.  Between 2010-2014 GM’s restructuring plan calls for a 98% increase in the number of vehicles it will be importing into the United States from Mexico, Korea, Japan and China, with the number of imports from these countries increasing from 371,547 to 736,743. As a result, the share of GM’s sales in the U.S. market that will be imported from these countries will increase from 15.5% to 23.5%. The overall number of vehicles GM will be importing in 2014 represents the production of four assembly plants, the same number that GM plans to close in the United States.

Yes, cheap cars that only Chinese can afford because you aren’t buying a damned thing if you don’t have the money.  They have the money, thus why GM says they need to build there.

We sit on huge untapped oil reserves as well as natural gas and we don’t touch it.  We put up wind farms that are ugly as sin because it is “good for the environment” or so they say.  A pipe going across the plains is horrible but row after row of these eyesores is somehow a good thing?  Somehow wildlife is keen on this, but not on a pipeline?

What do they do that benefits us?  Pass a law to order us to buy health insurance?  Open the borders for illegal aliens?  Force Catholic institutions to give Sandra Fluke birth control?  Teach about homosexuals in kindergarten?  Ban God from the public realm?  They damned sure make sure you are taxed before you are paid, when you are paid, when you spend, and when you die.  They need the revenue.We have illegals to support, factories to build overseas, and a lot of regimes to topple for the Taliban.

How about this?  How about the U.S. government start looking out for our interests and leave the rest alone?  Freedom backed by a government that put our “selfish” interests first made us great.  Obama can say he is sorry all he wants (and yes, he IS sorry), but I assure you, when the Chinese are on top, they are not going to lay down their success for us.

  1. Why were we sold out? $$$! Same reason G.H.W. Bush pulled up in election…did you see him not really try? Republicans wanted trade agreement, but couldn’t pull off. Dems at the time were against…had to have Clinton to pull them into it. Agree or disagree…don’t care…I saw it happen.
    Perot and son were building tax free international airport in Fort Worth then. It’s all NWO crap and will be for some time to come…unless Islam throws a piggy wrench in the mix.

  2. sigh….. well said, as usual, Cowboy. I shake my head in disgust, thankful that I don’t have children and that I am old enough to not have to live long in the world our youth have been brainwashed into creating for themselves. I shudder at the thought that, when all is done, they will look at us and ask “how could you let us do this to ourselves?”

      • I’m not sure I would forgive us our dereliction, but it does strike to mind a certain verse from a non PC book… Romans 1:21-25 “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”
