Good Night and Good Luck

The story pointed out that the company got a 10 year tax break that ended in 2005.

Probably because the Japanese were outraged that all of those jobs were outsourced and should be brought back to Japan. Now if only Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, Nissan, Sony, and all other foreign owned companies would go back where they belong and all American companies would bring their jobs back here, such as Heinz Ketchup, the world would be a better place.

1:52 seems to be under the impression that Nokia is a Japanese company, but details, details. Nokia is Finnish, and they've been moving manufacturing and certain other functions to Mexico for several years. This story is nothing new, and the reason they are moving has nothing to do with tax breaks. It has everything to do with trouble in their business and Mexico's cheap labor.

1:52, Nokia is not Japanese. And Japanese automakers are basically keeping the entire economies of mid-eastern states alive right now, since our good old American companies can't seem to get it right. We'd be in a ditch if not for foreign investment here, and the growing economies in other parts of the world are creating markets for things our country is producing. Finally, if you've ever bought anything at Wal-Mart, you're a hypocrit.

Now if we could only figure out how to export our lawns so that we could take advantage of Mexico's cheap labor our schools and hospitals wouldn't be going broke and our prisons wouldn't be overcrowded and our roads wouldn't have so many uninsured motorists. I am having a garage sale this weekend with lots of used clothing. All Mexicans are invited.

1:52PM, Heinz Ketchup foreign factories only produce ketchup for the region the factory is in. They still have US factories for North American ketchup. Or would you rather Heinz produce ketchup here for every market worldwide? That would make them un-competitive and then they'd go out of business.

Do you still masturbate while watching the swift boat video?

I thought John Kerry was opposed to outsourcing. You would be the first to say that big corporations are evil because they outsource, but yet you defend big ketchup for doing the same thing. Pass the cupcakes.

Big ketchup? Is there some sort of ketchup cartel? I guess you fatties would know more about it than me.

I also imagine inbred people need to pay closer attention when they read: Why exactly does ketchup or any other foodstuff consumed in India, Russia, or any other godless county have to be made in the US? Heinz ketchup consumed in the US is made in the US.

I didn't know India and Russia were counties, but what do I know? I was home schooled.
