It's just not going to happen. All cars now are made of parts from all over the world. We need to embrace free trade, not shrink in on ourselves.

I agree. Hence one reason why option C wasn't part of the original 2 options.

I'd disagree that globalization has benefited the American worker. It certainly has made a small percent of the top astronomically wealthy, but for everyone else it has been a race to the bottom.

That said, no real turning back and longing for the days of yesteryear is futile.

I would want to live in this country, but where are all the Republicans going to go? I hear the bottom of the ocean is nice.

Yes, drown yourselves.

It's really weird. They're very selective in what they remember about the past and how they see reality in the present.
I saw a sign on a co-worker's desk earlier today that said something like "No Hope, No Change, No jobs, NObama!"
This is someone who was unemployed in 2008 and most of 2009 and who works for the same company I do that has hired so many people this year we're running out of desks. Where are the jobs? Look around you.

Obviously it was witchcraft that created jobs. Obama is useless.

I think that the only reason we focus on cars is that for most people, it's the biggest purchase they make. I mean what costs more than your car? Other than your house, and those typically aren't manufactured outside of the US and imported. I don't think what car you buy is actually that big of an issue - it just blew up when the American auto companies were about to go under.

The company I work for has only fired one (yes one) person since I started here two years ago. We do have turnover, but it's people leaving for other/better jobs. We've added more positions. I would say we're doing our part.

How many years does it take to ruin a country?

How many does it take to fix the damage done?

:( Wow, lot of insults and hate towards the right in here.

That's a shame. I'm not HOLY CRAP EXTREMIST CONSERVATIVE or anything, but do we really need to sling insults at the other side?

Agreed 100% with this statement!

Is there any way we can trade back Sean Penn? We don't want him.

Turkey with lettuce, tomatoe, provalone, and dijon on a whole wheat wrap.

No, we don't. Which is why this needs to be a lunch thread. We don't need another political thread which inevitably starts this kind of hate.

Edit: Vote Flintstone/Rubble in 2012. Or zombie Nixon.

Rehydrated meatloaf and rehydrated mashed potatoes.

Interesting read.

I suppose the greatest strength of this argument is people on both sides really think this an accurate depiction of the differences.

Side note: who gets to keep American tolerance of differing views?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 5, 2012 11:53:15 AM PST
I don't know what is more upsetting, the OP or your lunch.

"American tolerance of differing views?"

What is this... I don't even...

Good point.

For what it's worth, it's one of the better Nutrisystem food choices, lol.

I can't wait until the election is over, but I am a bit scared of the fallout. People are pretty unhinged over it.

It's not a secret that I'm voting for Obama, but regardless of who wins, I'm going to get up on Wednesday, go to work, pay my bills and keep doing what I've been doing the last 4 years. I hope everyone feels that way.
