That is good, Isaac. I hope this will enlighten some folks and get them to thinking when they go shopping. There are other companies and i will update the list. But I posted this to show that not only do we have to worry about Illegals here, that if a copany chooses they take the jobs too. Where does it end? I know one way, fire the darn politicians.

Keeping your business/employees in the US when it would be profitable to outsource is bad for business and bad for the economy.

We'll remember that when you or someone you know gets laid off because the company moved out of the country, Joe.

It wouldn't be so bad if some countries were moving their business here as well.

Is that bad or good when we loose one assembly line job and gain two new high tech jobs to replace it in a growing world economy?

They do in a free market. The topic of this thread seems rooted in protectionism..

I haven't always felt this way, but I'm not pro-protectionism anymore... I'm a free trade kinda guy. I believe in letting the market solve problems, not governments or politicians.

If you think we lose one and gain 2 high-tech businesses, I hope you are right. But look at some of the computers companies that moved. Some of those companies aren't that old of a business like travelocity. It seems weird when they move companies to another country, then they ship the merchandise back here to be sold. Now does that company pay income tax? No, those companies do not pay taxes. So tell me again, how are they helping us?

Well that's basically the exact opposite of a free market economy. The entrepreneur in a free market economy isn't necessarily interested in helping you or his country of origin, but rather in maximizing his profit potential, and I think we ALL know Mexicans work a heck of a lot cheaper than Americans.

Umm, Anime, you need to be a little more specific when arguing this point. While I understand what you were trying to say, even the illegal alien receiving cash money under the table pays taxes when he goes shopping and/or putting gas in their car to GET to Wal-Mart in the first place.

We know who is full of what! If there is a company in another country they probably don't pay taxes. That would be the same as a military person that serves in another country, they can not be taxed because they were on foriegn soil. If someone says the military pays the tax then they are full of bull****.

It is nothing like the military. If you do business and earn money in the US you pay taxes here, regardless of where your company is headquartered.
