  •  We gave too much ground when the Republicans (6+ / 0-)

    cried 'Solyndra, Solyndra.'  We need to make climate change mitigation our number one priority, so manufacturing should follow the German lead.

    We can no longer just manufacture 'stuff' with no accounting for externalities.

    Otherwise the Greens will continue to gain ground as they did in Germany, and for good reason.

    So what'll it be, my fellow Democrats?  Manufacturing to create jobs for profit sake, or manufacturing to create common good for the the society that hosts it?

    •  When I first started noticing 'Made in China' (2+ / 0-)

      Labels on cheap plastic items filling shelves at department stores I remember wondering how absolutely crazy and spoiled the Chinese workers must think Americans are to want such useless items, when the workers and their families were barely meeting basic needs for food and shelter.  

      If we don't find a different path, Mother Nature will undoubtedly find one for us - and it won't be pleasant.

      We're ALL better off when we're ALL better off!
