    lol, this could be a topic about Canada. Our fine Federal Conservative gov't opened the floodgates to foreign temp workers some time ago. The fallout has been jaw dropping, lol.

    Good luck pinning this on Obama, because this isn't about gov't but about Big Biz thwarting and coercing gov't.

    btw, check out your banks for lots of this crap.

    Has been going on for a number of years - think it started under Clinton - Obama just jumped on the bandwagon.

    actually, it was more under Nixon/Bush when they opened up China as to when it all really started

    I say Bush, because Bush 1 was the first US diplomatic attache in China (as Chief of the U.S. Liaison Office in the People's Republic of China circa 1975) and was hugely instrumental in opening up Chinese trade

    it all snowballed from there - and as we know, snowballs run downhill

    I don't normally post dumb gifs, but this was pretty funny vis-a-vis Obama and US jobs and China, India, etc

    Not quite true.
    The influence from China didn't start until the 1990s and quickly did a volte face in '96 with Clinton, Gore and others "weceiving vewy vewy irregal" campaign funds from PRC operatives in the US. I remember it well because of the three Chinese families on my street at the time disappeared with no notice in the middle of the night leaving houses full of furniture, booze, VCR porn and cars to avoid being implicated in the the scandal. Several hundred Chinese nationals did the same thing near that time.

    Here's some fun details from down memory lane via Wiki.
    Charlie Trie
    The most significant activity by Trie was a $450,000 attempted donation by Yah Lin "Charlie" Trie to Clinton's legal defense fund, which Trie allegedly delivered in two envelopes each containing several checks and money orders. The fund immediately rejected $70,000 and deposited the remainder, but ordered an investigation of the source. The investigation found that some of the money orders were made out in different names but with the same handwriting, and sequentially numbered. The fund then rejected the donation entirely, and returned the deposited funds two months after the initial contribution.

    Trie was convicted in 1998 and sentenced to three years probation and four months home detention for violating federal campaign finance laws by making political contributions in someone else's name and for causing a false statement to be made to the Federal Election Commission

    Johnny Chung
    Between 1994 and 1996, Chung donated $366,000 to the DNC. Eventually, all of the money was returned. Chung told federal investigators that $35,000 of the money he donated came from Liu Chaoying and, in turn, China's military intelligence.[10]

    Specifically, Chung testified under oath to the U.S. House Committee investigating the issue in May 1999 that he was introduced to Chinese Gen. Ji Shengde, then the head of Chinese military intelligence, by Liu Chaoying. Chung said that Ji told him: "We like your president very much. We would like to see him reelect [sic]. I will give you 300,000 U.S. dollars. You can give it to the president and the Democrat Party." Both Liu and the Chinese government denied the claims.

    Chung was eventually sentenced to 5 years probation and community service following an agreement to plea guilty to bank fraud, tax evasion, and two misdemeanor counts of conspiring to violate election law. Chung asserts that, after his guilty plea, the Chinese government attempted to assassinate him with "hit squads" three times, but the efforts were foiled by the FBI.

    Things with China took a sour turn for the Clintons a year later after he gave the okay for US forces to bomb the Chinese embassy in Belgrade Yugoslavia during the time US forces were intervening there under UN mandate.

    Have you noticed that Obama's words on things like jobs and what he actually does about them never are the same thing? It's not an accident. It's a pretty good long range plan to damage the US economy enough to cause mass panic with the population who might respond by being more amenable to accepting an abrupt transition to a more socialist for of government.

    That sounds like a right wing extremist tin foil hat conspiracy theory, doesn't it? Except that the sources are socialist Saul Alinsky, Bill Ayers, The now defunct "National Party" founded by socialist U Wisconsin professor, Joel Rogers, a contributor to the writing of the 2nd stimulus bill and the Affordable Care Act.. Harvard Professor Stephen Jay Gould, Mel Boozer, Communist Party Chairman John Batchell...

    No Breitbart, no Glenn Beck, no Bill O'Reilly... Just read what the socialists themselves say and take them at their words.

    Hillary to Oppose Pacific Trade Pact

    NYT: Democrats have turned decidedly protectionist since the passage of Nafta, with even Hillary Rodham Clinton hinting she may oppose a Pacific trade pact.

    Hilary Clinton "hinting that she may oppose the Pacific trade pact"

    is that like coming right out and opposing it? NO

    I'll believe this nebulous, lying cunt when she says something definitive

    I hate outsourcing as a policy, it's almost always more harmful to the Country than it is beneficial to any one particular company. Companies by and large don't even want to do it, but are forced to because of a 'race to the bottom' market dynamics and competitive advantage principles. icon_rolleyes.gif
