Big Government - Authoritarian / Re: My Problem with Universal Health Care

I never thought you'd be arguing the conservative position and I'd be arguing the progressive. Funny how that works. The way I see it, if you set the cost of labor universally the market will readjust to about where it should be, and the slow shift of manufacturing from america to china and Latin america will cease, and manufacturing and consumption will start to distribute evenly.

As it is, we will continue to consume while the rest of the world produces, and our debt will rise until the nations that handle production refuse to buy anymore of it. Then the global economy dies and world war 3 starts.

Just as higher wages in other countries would cause the price of goods to go up, wages here on order of five cents an hour would cause goods to deflate.

Coca-Cola would go bankrupt if everyday Joes couldn't afford a single bottle after a whole day's work. They could lower their prices, or go out of business. And they could lower their prices, since the labour would be costing them less.

If McCain had won, healthcare reform would be over and done with, the war in Iraq would be finished, we'd be winning in Afghanistan, Iran's government would have collapsed during the riots last summer, and the economy would be on the path to recovery.

That much I'm fairly sure of. More than that I can't say.

If we lower wages to compete with the rest of the world we are going to have riots. Americans could never be made to live like that, you'd have a Marxist revolution.
 
The better option is to force our trading partners to raise their wages. 
 
The cost of goods will skyrocket and people will have to deal with that. I could care less, anyone who would rather have cheep goods at the cost of slave labor than goods made by paid workers deserves to be sent to a labor camp and forced to make shoes for the rest of his or her life for 5 cents a day in 95 degree moldy rat infested conditions without clean water or plumbing.

If I ever became president I would end the nuclear problem... I'd do that by first forcing my allies to give me all their missiles, then force my enemies to surrender theirs under the threat of trade embargoes and war.
 
The trick is to tell them is a nice calm way that you will kill them if they don't do exactly what you want. They have to think you are crazy enough to actually do it, that's the trick.

Hmm... rewrite the dictionary...

*makes notes in world domination scheme*

On a serious note, lets just say the extent of my seething hatred for people who mock and refute the concept of logic can't be described in any language I know.

In Massachusetts? Please! Our courts are so liberal they regularly let rapists go. I think any judge would laugh at a trial based on a 20 year old taking a picture of his elementary school.

Of course I know that, my sister can't get a job in Chelsea because she doesn't speak Spanish, that and the fact that she's not related to anyone with such jobs. All my family connections are in the public sector, (where you really don't need any skills whatsoever.)

I refuse to acknowledge racists who think minorities are so weak as to require special treatment. Lets not forget that the exalted cyclops of the KKK, (the senior senator of west Virginia) is one of the most respected members of the democratic party, the same party ensuring that Hispanic Americans don't assimilate by passing laws that have the effect eliminating all the incentives to do so.

Please make all posts in English, due to some measure of spamming all strangers posting in foreign languages will be banned and their posts will be removed. You may post foreign languages if its clear that you are not spamming. But if your first post around here is in Cyrillic script and is a link to a Toyota add, I might just kick you out.

Thanks for understanding...

I won't be the one to say anything but I wouldn't be in the least bit shocked if you lost your forum over this. Did you know that in America, you cannot refuse to hire someone for an inability to speak English but you can refuse to hire someone for an inability to speak Spanish?

And if you hadn't been somebody's cousin and somebody else's son, you'd be in prison now. Think about it.
