Dorgan Says No To Globalization

Every time I hear or read that our government is giving corporations tax breaks to outsource jobs overseas I see red. What is really disturbing, is that it is cited without outrage, or seeming awareness of how totally wrong-headed this is, how injurious to our economy, especially to our workers.

Well, someone has pointed out the Bush administration's elitist economic gouging of middle-class U. S. citizens. In his new book, "Take This Job and Ship It: How Corporate Greed and Brain Dead Politics Are Selling Out America," Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-ND) exposes and demolishes the anti- U.S. trade and tax policies of the Bush administration, even the holiest of holies, globalization.

Finally, a lawmaker has broken ranks to stand up to the Bush Bully Boys and "just say 'No' " to their dismantling of our economy. No to drug and oil company lobbyists in their pursuit of obscene corporate profits.... no to unlimited trade deficits.... no to giveaway trade agreements.... even no to Wal Mart.

One has to ask.... what has taken the opposition party so long to recognize that King George has no clothes?

The answer is, because some Democrats, those who stood to profit, turned a blind eye, or worse, bought into Bush's flim-flam economic policy.

They need to go in November, along with their fellow GOP Congressional corporate stooges.

I totally agree with your comments..I dont know why Bush has not been impeached..He has distroyed one country from the outside, Iraq, and is distroying this country from the inside. We can not take two more years of his policies. Democrates need to stand up and stand up now. Can anyone tell me one good thing this man has done for America?

Anon, I share your frustration. Bush hasn't been impeached because, luckily for him and unluckily for the country, the legislative branch is controlled by the GOP. We MUST change that in November.

When I think of the Billions of $$ that have been poured in the sand of Iraq, and then read that those dollars could have insured clean water and immunizations for EVERY person on this earth, it makes me literally, sick to my stomach. jt

Have you noticed the lack of news coverage on the Iraq war. Its like it doesnt exist. During the months of May and June, 6,000 civilians were killed. I cant imagine how many were injured. What is the point of all this killing. The democrates can share part of the blame for agreeing to the Iraq war resolution. They should have known after the 2000 election that they cant trust Bush.

Breaking news on CNN, 56 killed by a car bomb in Iraq (Tuesday).... it's madness.
