....as it has turned out to be. (WTF?)
No offense, dood, since you make several lucid comments, but have you ever familiarized with the habitat in which you exist (namely America)? I mean, we have been in the "official" 4th jobless recovery, (really the 6th), which means that of those jobs lost, only half again are created, and of those, half are at less wages than those lost, and a larger portion than ever are now temporary or contractor jobs.
You are now beginning to realize why David Rockefeller accompanied President Nixon and Henry Kissinger aboard those flights to China when they were opening relations with them (Rockefeller established banking operations in both Beijing and Moscow back in 1973). You may now be realizing why David Rockefeller founded the Council of the Americas to lobby for the passage of NAFTA --- which was primarily about allowing for foreign ownership of Mexican banks, and secondarily about offshoring jobs there. You may now be realizing that TPP, or Trans-Pacific Partnership, is the mother of all "free trade" agreements, and that along with TAFTA or the Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement, we are truly screwed in America?
Have a nice day, dood!
