Iraq is lookin’ to buy a few more F-16 warplanes. And they’re going to be building an islamist government, right next door to Israel. Surely nothing bad will come of this!
President Obama is lookin’ to sign a new trans-Pacific free trade zone. He says it will increase US exports and increase jobs. The problem is the same as with all the other so-called free trade zones: it’s not FAIR trade when you have FREE trade with someone who can pollute as much as they like and pay employees as little as they like, competing against regulation-bound, minimum-waged USA companies. The exports will be the jobs that are created, as MORE companies try to get maximum value for their production dollars.
