Offshoring American Enterprise: Good, Bad, or Indifferent?
Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Saturday, August 24, 2013
I may step on a few toes with my next remark, but I can always apologize, and ask forgiveness if it so be the case that my remarks are found offensive.
However, suffice it to say, that our nation’s Congress, has, for at least the past 20 years, or so – and even moreso in the past decade plus – embarked upon a very wrongheaded direction of abandoning our nation’s people in favor of establishing corporate presence overseas.
In other words, we’ve promoted corporate whoring.
Our businesses have been allowed to, and indeed encouraged, to seek overseas operations all in the name of increased profits. And the “modern” corporate prophet has taken his Golden Parachute and landed safely in the Seychelles, or some other tropical, tax-free haven island paradise.
In the mean while, the families back home have been left with empty bellies, hungry mouths, foreclosed houses, no jobs, no healthcare insurance, and no money to pay the bills.
We’ve been thrown not merely to the wolves, but like Christians of old, we’ve been thrown to the lions for great sport.
And for those who have remained on our shores, we have allowed them to run roughshod over their employees like the Hebrew slaves of ancient Egypt were under an oppressive pharaoh, whose mantra is “Make more bricks, but use no hay.”
It’s time to stop those evils.
Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
Hope to hear from you soon!
