    when more massive layoffs occur 'due to the economy', magically these foreign workers will find jobs doing the same job with the same employer back in their native country.  It happened in the dot.com implosion...massively.

    In a year or two, when millions more US workers than already are unemployed, the media will state things like...things are getting better, 'india and china is seeing growth' trying to convince US workers that there is hope when, in fact, there is much less hope.

    There is no record of a consumer based society in economic history that has thrived.  If there is not a paradigm change in economic policy to correct trade deficits and production oriented rather than consumption based policy, Obama will fail miserably, I don't know if he knows this and some, perhaps many, here will be offended by that prediction but massive trade deficits means the US is getting poorer every month.

    After 8 years of darkness, a great nation chose to reapply power to the beacon of light America stands for.
