Stanley Blumenthal: An Opposing Point of View
(Reprinted with permission from Stanley Blumenthal)
ABOUT TIME TO SEND A COMRADE TO WASHINGTON. Waving the flag saying socialisim is bad and America is the greatest captalist country in the world is not stopping G.E., Apple, Whirlpool, etc. to continue exporting our jobs while the Repubs. & Demos. are screaming that to elect the other side would be the worst disaster in our history when both took turns causing the disaster we are in and they can’t blame us socialists. Low taxes for the rich is a stupid, unfair drop in the bucket that will make few jobs, the rich, richer and cause more borrowing from communist China. The rosy pictures promsed are not doable. If they were doable it would have been done long ago or should have. Europe suffers for the same basic capitalistic reasons except they are a bunch of small countries with few natural resources other then tourisim. Till now there is little hindrance to job exporting which is basic to theirs and our troubles.
FINALLY, MAKE THE RICH RICHER CONGRESS WITHOUT A COMRADE ON BOARD which tolerates corps registering in the Cayman Islands, focuses on Bring Jobs Home Act, introduced by Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich)S.2884 and Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr (D-N.J.)H.R.5542. It would eleminate tax deductions for the expenses of exporting jobs. It would also provide 20% tax credits to companies that bring jobs back. Why did they allow this suicide tax deduction in the first place and repealing it now?
EXPORTING JOBS. Immoral captalists not satisfied with normal profits scan the world for the cheapest country to put the jobs where they can make the most money, ignoring the high cost of running the USA, damaging the tax base, their own workers, wars, intrest & principal owed China etc that has to be paid. Job exporting is not mandatory but destructively common and meekly accepted, most goes to communist China making her our biggest economic and military competitor while praising captalisim and condeming socialisim. Where were our political hacks when we protesters were labeled protectionists? Instead of rewarding the greedy rich with low taxes, TAX no tax paying G.E. and other ILKS to feel the pain the rest of us are feeling caused by their outsourcing. Which USA workers are being paid enough to buy the stuff to stimulate the economy we are waiting for? Out foreign policies are the most expensive in the world, who is to pay for it, 1% ers, 99 % ers or borrow more from communist China? Both parties refuse to blame the captalists for job exporting, tax avoiding, rust belting which is why Congress needs patriotic socialists.
VENTURE CAPITAL. A few months ago 60 Minutes visited a G.E. Jet Engine factory in Brazil which has one of the fastest growing economies in the world. The G.E. Rep. mentioned that the parts are made in the USA but he also said that 60 percent of G.E. factories are outsourced. 1. Is our military buying those engines with our tax dollars? 2. Did they get R & D tax deductions? 3. How many other USA firms put their factories in Brazil? 4. Have you seen G.E. advertisments on TV? Conclusion, G.E. doesn’t give a crap for patriotisim or their own workers but they do on Public Relations. If we allow Venture Capital with it’s latest technologies to continue fleeing then the USA is doomed to failure regardless of what the Johnny-come-lately political hacks are currently pitching. If the U.S.A. had nationalized General Electric and all the other job exporting firms their factories would still be here. When unregulated captalisim fails, job saving socialisim can succeed. Patriotisim-n-Socialisim go together.
FREE TRADE AGREEMENTS WITH LEVEL PLAYING FIELDS. Sounds great but actually are one way streets to hell which ends up with an inbalance of trade against us and a coverup for outsourcing .Other then auto assembly plants do you know of any manufacturing or servicing jobs including venture capital insourced from China, Mexico, Asia, anywhere? Much fanfare when Free Trade agreements are signed but no fanfare when our factories are outsourced to our new trading partners and rust belted here. I was sending Letters To The Editor saying, “Ship Goods, Not Factories” while congress allowed tax deductions for the cost of outsourcing. A free market economy fails when jobs are exported. Note how many beggers, homeless people, abandoned homes, unemployment, shut down factories, national debit, made elsewhere on our shelves and continuing BS from our billionaire supported politicians.
WE WERE THE PROUDEST, greatest manufacturing country in the world until the Republicans, Democrats, Presidents, Congresses and Think Tanks encouraged outsourcing with tax breaks as Mutually Benifical, a Servicing Economy is OK and inviting the Nature of the Captalist Beasts to take over. Expecting the USA to compete on costs with the 3rd World after giving them our know how is ludicrous. Blaming Unions and Big Govt. spending is what Hacks say to direct attention from the 1% big political contributer outsourcers like G.E. and to get elected. With me you are not getting a far leftist democrat but a USA patriotic NPA leftist. Think of a Socialist Congressman as part of the Check & Balance our founding fathers intended. Destroying unions and deregulations will put more money in the Vulture Captalist pockets and less stimulus money in ours and not enough to bring back factories. It’s better to have high union, tax paying, stimulus wages then tax depleting extended unemployment. Expecting small business to carry the load is stupid. That Jet engine plant belongs here and so does a whole bunch of other factories which shouldn‘t have been allowed to leave considering anything can be made cheaper with our captalists help.
CHINA PLAYS US LIKE KARL MARX SAID “For profit the captalist will sell rope to the hangman which will be used to hang them. (and us)“. China has protectionist laws big time and we must too. 1. To sell to China the greedy must put their factories there as a joint venture revealing all the trade secrets. 2. Under prices their goods to capture every market possible. 3. Insourcing, no outsourcing. 4. No rust belting. 5. Manipulate their currency rate to their advantage. 6. Immune to criticisim, everything is an internal matter. 7. No national debit. 8. Accumulate govt. wealth so that they can buy loads of interest bearing T-Bills (told we should thank them) and still pay for 3 Australian mines which wiped out it’s national debit. 9. Make deals for raw materials all over the world to feed their industries which is one of the reasons for high oil prices. 10. No Ponzi schemes and scams, 11. No downsizing for max profit. 12. No bankruptcies and no bail outs, govt. owns most everything and most everything is subsidized. 13. No foreclosures. 14. Growing middle class. 15. Socialized health and education 16. Staying out of wars. 17. No Beggers. Communist China is now an economic and even military competitor. Note the complaints of how China mistreats some foreign investors as dummies to be cheated and eliminated and doing nothing to help the captalist world which gave them most of the outsourcing. Isn’t it stupid for captalists to install state of the art factories in communist China while closing the ones in the U.S.A. and then give tax breaks to the job exporters when unemployment is rampant and also claim captalisim is freedom, socialisim is not? Where is the freedom for our loyal, unemployed workers who normally provide cannon fodder for our military, taxes to pay for our wars and buying power for our economy when their jobs are exported to make the filthy rich, richer? It’s our country we must and can stop jobs and our american dream being exported by imposing proper taxes.
DURING WWII there was much patriotic buying of US war bonds. If T-Bills are good enough for clever China then Patriot Bonds should be good enough for us as a safe, retirement, tax free investment with modest interest. Why weren’t we warned earlier that we were selling so much T-Bills to China? PATRIOTISIM IS NOT A LUXURY, IT’S A NECESSITY IF THE USA IS TO SURVIVE.
GLOBAL ECONOMY – Excuse for outsourcing. It is OK to make money helping another country but not by closing factories here, it’s suicidal. Outsourcing is also a TERROR WEAPON in union, non union and private negotiations. THE BIGGEST REASON FOR OUR NATIONAL DEBIT is that foreign workers don’t pay the taxes we would if the millions of jobs stayed here. How safe are these greedy, outsourcing dummies giving away their own children’s inheretance abandoning the USA where they have a say on the laws? Workers are loyal to their employers and laws should make employers loyal to their workers.
WAR IS A STIMULUS FOR JOBS so how come we don’t see massive war industries? How much of our war materials are purchased from foreign countries? How do we know that low taxes for the rich wont be for more outsourcings, a bigger yacht or pocketed? We are fed stories of low pay chinese sweat shops, industrial polution, etc and not the security of exporting goods, not jobs, promotion oportunities with education, a commensurate cost of living, vacations, socialized medicine, #1 car buying market, no beggers, etc working in our exported factories! Do the chinese worry about our unemployment problems?
WHERE IS THE CREDABILITY of our think tanks, economists, etc not warning that our Free Trade Agreements with the Level Playing Fields will result in our current crisis after years of outsourcing, tax avoidence, rust belting, inbalance of trade, national debit, selling tons of T-Bills to communist China, unnecessary wars which is supposed to be push overs plus missleading us by saying Don’t Be Alarmed, A Servicing Economy Is Mutually Beneficial and afterwards don‘t expect our rust belt factories to reopen or be replaced. Only lately is there talk on bringing back manufacturing after unemployment became our nbr. 1 issue. Think of all the factories that would still be here if they were nationalized or the Repubs. and Demos. had acted to protect them, reversing policy after most cows left the barn! No real 3rd party for us 99 %ers yet? Perhaps its because the greedy 1% make the biggest contributions to greedy politicians? Note how neither party criticizes the tax dodging, campaign contributers, complaining that the USA has the highest tax rate in the world ignoring the legitimate high cost of running the USA and then praising the job exporting rich as successful job creators (for other countries)! This is why we have Wall Street Occupiers and Congress needs comrades. Except for demonizing we socialist get mass media no-attention.
IF ELECTED I would consult with patriotic citizens like Ralph Nader, Michael Moore, Louis Uchitelle who wrote ’The Disposable American’ in 2006, Wall Street Occupiers, the Communist Party USA whose motto is ‘People Before Profits’ and other fighters of Corporate Greed. It would help if there were other comrades in congress to consult. How many billions and trillions have captalists invested in communist china for their’s and our children to inherit? If we had a more patriotic not for profit socialistic economy with more stringent rules on multinational outsourcers we would still be on top. We already have some protective tarrifs like on steel tubing, we need a lot more. Remember being told Americans don’t want to work in factories when times were good, then we are the best workers in the world and now we ain‘t?
IS PRESIDENT OBAMA STUPID OR DISHONEST? Wouldn’t he take the easy paths of less taxes, smaller govt., etc? When is the fight over Affordable Care going to end and satisfy all? The financial crisis was years in the making as factory after factory shut down. If the Repubs. programs are so right why weren’t they applied years ago when rust belting started? Same for the Democrats, both captalistic.
WHAT IS THE PAY AND WORKING CONDITIONS in all of our outsourced factories? Especially next door Mexico which benefited from NAFTA which produced illegal imigrants, murder inc. and the worlds richest man? Mexico is a big country with many resources and should be able to provide enough jobs with good wages for their own people, in fact every country should. Captalisim isn’t working for Mexico and a whole lot of other countries with no end in sight. A socialist Mexico and other countries would do better.
SELF DESTRUCTIVE OUTSOURCING, TAX AVOIDENCE, RUST BELTING is no way to run a country. Even law work is outsourced to India while we have an excess of lawyers. The policy that the least cost of production justifies outsourcing while the patriotic needs of our country like supporting our troops is secondary. Don’t believe the BS that we are the enemy when we are not even participants in law making which I hope to change. There are 435 representitives, not a single socialist who are for workers not bosses while we preach democracy to a world with many socialists. Too many laws favor the immoral, job exporting captalists and not the 99 percenters. History will repeat itself if Romney wins, the democrats will accuse him of not delivering the rosey promises he is now making and so it endlessly goes. Lighten up, good and bad things can be said of captalisim and socialisim. Best if we work together.
BEWARE OF STANDARD OPERATING POLITICIANS who promise the sun, moon, stars, and jobs, purposely not mentioning who created rust belting like Mitt Romney‘s why now not before on job creation?
