    This coming from someone who takes advantage of this country by trying to pass off poorly built canoes as 'art' and hoping some rich american sucker will buy one. Piss off you f@cking hypocrite.

    I guess Clinton's NAFTA had nothing to do with the outsourcing then. take a look at Obama's pick for jobs czar. former head of GE. he's outsourced record amounts of jobs in the past two years.
    take a look at Obama's Trans Pacific Partnership. if that goes through our job situation will look like China's.
    Blaming the government on the outsourcing situation really shows that you haven't been paying attention to heavy industry. Almost all corporations work for profit, and the easiest way for them to compete on a cost basis is to outsource. It has been like that since modern technology and transport logistics made it a global market. As long as it is legal to buy from countries that allow child labor and penny on the dollar wages, companies will be outsourcing.

    The nice thing about this country, is that I am free to live wherever I like. I picked an area that had all the things I need and want. You obviously chose wrong.

    Now you are just arguing semantics of the financial world, which affect all nations. Ask the Brits how much you could buy with 1 GBP 50 years ago. We complain about the dollar failing, yet the exchange rate with Britain is the same as it was back in 2000-2001. The exchange rate with the Euro is very similar as well.

    not to me. seems like a intelligent calm individual capable of thinking things through and giving good analysis of issues that involve the fate of this country.
    No, he sounds like another "activist" with no real long term plan. He is smart enough to rally the angry idiots, yet has no concept of tact and politics. He will just talk to a small minority, much like many of the green party candidates. His little march is, as he said, an act of civil disobedience.

    Hahahaha, right. And your country is doing so well. NZ is just a wannabe Great Britain with none of the power or diversity. You basically work under a conservative one party system, which is pretty frightening in my opinion. Your country has its fair share of scandal as well. If you think you are better off, then you must not pay attention to your own news and history. How are those leaky homes doing?

    Has this surpassed the bongs thread yet? If so, might be time to bump.

    I've seen no gossip, only the words of Roy Stuart. You've denied this more than once. The internet is forever Roy, post and it's cemented in cyberspace for all to see.

    So you are saying you voted for someone you didn't totally agree with. You went along to get along. When you vote for the lesser of two evils, the outcome will be evil.

    Blaming the government on the outsourcing situation really shows that you haven't been paying attention to heavy industry.

    Duh of course it's about profit. One point you missed was that it is legal to trade with the third world countries. How do you think it became legal? Through lobbyist corrupting our politicians to lift and deregulate trade agreements. The whole outsourcing scandal has everything to do with politics. NAFTA GAT. Look up ALEC. You learn more how major corporation have influenced our gov.



    The nice thing about this country, is that I am free to live wherever I like. I picked an area that had all the things I need and want. You obviously chose wrong.

    My business and livelihood are here. Why should I have to move from gov corruption. Why not stand up for what is rightfully mine. To back away and move is to lay down. I'm no ones *****. Besides the waves in Jersey blow away SC.

    That's because Europes economy is in shambles. Exchange rates have nothing to do with the value of the dollar and the paper it is printed on. The QE3 is currently propping up the value of the dollar but you can only do that for so long until it goes bust. There is no value backing up this fiat currency. Our country is bankrupt, and interest rates are rigged.

    Civil disobedience. His march is illegal not unlawful. Big difference. Small minority? Maybe. Martin Luther Kings human rights movement consisted of less than 5% of the US population. Seems he had a big impact. Enought to change the laws.

    As far as this blokes attack he is right about one thing. This is a Faciast country under socialist rule. Facisim as defined by Mussolini himself is the merger of government and corporation to rule a country. Disagree? Banker bailouts, the Monsanto Protection Act, lobbying (bribery). Again look into ALEC.

Sorry buddy, but things aren't better.
    I don't agree with all your conspiracy theories but I definitely agree that the country is not better now than 20 years ago. Inflation, manufacturing, illegal immigration problems, forced health care, home prices for new home buyers without equity, rent prices, etc. My parents and grandparents saw the American dream come true for them. They now think there is no American dream and I have to agree. It's slowly going away with the illegal population and high cost of living. It only pays to be an illegal citizen getting free healthcare, welfare, food stamps and free housing. There was a time when hard work payed off but now we are just left paying for every other lazy ass.
