    American manufactures are continuing to export jobs. Recent data shows that all the new manufacturing jobs created in the recovery have been offset by plant closures. American plants were closed and the jobs were moved to Mexico, China or other low wage labor markets.

    American business executives have shown very little allegiance to America. And Republican politicians, like Mitch McConnell talk the good talk about patriotism while legislating policies that ship American jobs to China.

    Free trade has been very costly to American workers while it has been a bonanza to big business.

    look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.

      TPP is going to be a huge disaster.   Maybe the people will rise and say no just like they did to the war with Syria and Summers.  

      I have three politically incorrect, straight, white male, grandchildren; and I don't care if you think they're important or not.
