    The Obama/Soros propaganda machine is in full swing.

    Here you go Mrs Keet - you need to copy and pate the full address.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/comment/ambroseevans_pritchard/8844646/World-power-swings-back-to-America.html

    The article actually suggests that as foreign work forces start to put pressure on the markets they serve (i.e., demand higher wages and benefits) that the USA becomes very competitive once again.

    It further suggests that with a weak dollar, a strong Euro, and China buying into the Euro even more - we will see a stronger demand for US made products. Add to that shipping costs and the losses in Asia with counterfeiting, etc and the prediction is that the USA will soon be back on top...

    Sure America will be competitive again... right after the middle class is reduced to the working poor class, being paid minimum wage so as to be "competitive" with India and China. This has always been the dream of the socialists and communists... to eliminate the middle class. Only poorly paid workers in a workers "paradise". Well thank you Mr. Obama for that.

    There is no such category as the "middle class". This fallacy was perpetuated for you to believe that one can rise from the working class to a state where you actually controlled your own destiny and participated in the economy on a level playing field.

    As we have seen, there is only the working class, and the industrialists(or whatever you want to call them).

    For most of us in this forum, we are f*cked

    Rick - I agree, so true. I own a small business (a real one, with gross receipts of between 180k to 250k). I see nothing good on the horizon. It's a shame.

    Visionaries like Henry Ford realized we needed a vast expansion of the middle class... because only then would there be a pool of people large enough with enough discretionary income to purchase his automobiles.

    Industrialists today are playing right into the hands of the communists and socialists who want to destroy the middle class, by eliminating jobs and placing factories overseas. This leads to a reduction of the middle class, reduction of discretionary income, and eventually a loss of sales for business. It's self-defeating. Many of us clearly saw this when NAFTA and other schemes to shift jobs overseas started. Few believed it, because it was just a factory here, a factory there. But now the chickens have come home to roost.

    The communists and socialists have used the industrialists' own greed against them.

    Brian in Oregon, Henry Ford Sr. had a lot of interesting things to say.
