Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, November 09, 2017

The republicans like to argue about global warming and the effects of pollution and the role of the EPA as if it is all just a mental exercise in hypotheticals and theory. It is not. We know what happens without pollution controls. We have seen it before here in America before the Clean air act. We can see it abroad now. This is what deregulation will get us. It isn't theory it is observation

But, but, polluters will self regulate. All those regulations we have here are bad for bidness. Just look how well they all do in India! And all that wealth trickles down to everyone. All those people are sleeping on sidewalks in India because they lack ambition. And lobbyists.

There's a film that outlines the republican vision for America. It's entitled "The Hunger Games".

#4 Both parties want that. Read some snoofy, if you stay up late. He will argue that we need to reduce wages to compete with the Chinese, while opening borders to third world workers instead of tightening the labor markets so people can have decent lives.

"He will argue that we need to reduce wages to compete with the Chinese"

I've never even come close to arguing that.

Well... I have argued we need to reduce health care costs to compete with other countries engaged in high-tech manufacturing. But that's an entirely different matter.

#6 Never come close? Then how come you keep saying that globalization is the inevitable future? You know what that does to American wages, right? And what exactly are your feelings about protectionism?

Yeah, the government does in fact need to pick up the cost of health care instead of businesses and employees picking it up, and then pay for with an external tax like a tariff on slave labor so our internal taxes don't go up.

Did I say that?

Globalization is the current present tense reality, I guess that means it's the future too, for a while to come...

I think that's a fairly accurate assessment.

#9 You do keep ranting about how our jobs going oversea are helping someone in Bangladesh or Africa. But the problem is, that person is actually a slave laborer working for an oligarch. He has no hope of ever having a middle class life, and would actually be better served by picking up an AK-47 and running into the streets shouting "Up against the wall, -------------!"

You actually advocate sending our high paying jobs that created modern Western civilization to the slaves of a bunch of gangsters.

So to the large conglomerates that do that very thing.

#12 Yes. We call those "trans-national corporations", and they own the politicians and the media. And what do they share in common? They promote globalism, their business model.

That's where you end up dying of hunger or a preventable disease in a dark alley way somewhere while Peter Thiel is getting blooding transfusions from young men to stay immortal in his walled fortress.

Of course they do. Well, they don't so much promote it as just do it.
