NTA, that's a great philosophical discussion to answer the philosophy of globalism vis a vis zero sum game. And, I'm sure Free Market Globalists such as Toussaint would prefer that we focus on that level of discussion-the theoretic. Because focusing on the real impact of FMG means looking in the face of real live losers in this game, real live human beings that no longer have a job. And while if the factory locates from one intra-country region to another, people can follow the jobs, this...

The thing is that my position is not a philosophical one; it's simply an application of the physical laws of nature concerning matter and energy. Economics is subject to these laws because matter and energy is what makes economies work. I am a firm believer, based upon physical laws of nature, that there can never be a net gain...only shifts. You might have 20 dollars in one pocket and nothing in the other. If you move 20 dollars to the other pocket, you still only have 20 dollars, but one...

Bryant Gumbel pissed 'white' folk off from the git when he overshadowed Jim Lampley who was the 'fair-haired' boy of broadcast sports. Gumbel's in-depth analysis of NFL games while talking from only the sidelines was something to behold. Bryant does have game. PEACE Jim Chester

Toussaint, a few of your assumptions are flawed. For one, the assumption that free-market economies are free. This may be more or less true, but for us it's getting less and less true with each passing year. Government de-regulation, government interference, corporate collusion and monopolistic practices are limiting that free-market more and more over time. The result is less choice, not more. Good cases in point are the lack of enforcement of anti-trust laws that are on the books and the...

When it comes to reparations for black folks America will always come up with some excuse and nonsensical crap about what they don't owe us, etc, etc. Some of these same "white" folks are the survivors or descendants of the survivors of the Holocaust who feel that it is OK for THEM to receive financial renumeration but not for us.

Yes, among other issues, this topic is a heavily debated issue in Washington, DC. In fact, a popular radio host by the name of Michael Baisden discusses this issue quite often on his radio program.

But after listening to all of these women well into their 30's and 40's calling and complaining,...

Neither man nor woman should be admired. Romantic relationships are not a "game", so no matter how proficient a person is at "playing the game", they are ultimately (ab)users .

USB sends power through the USB cable. Not all USB devices have external power sources. I have a steering wheel game controller that plugs into the USB port.
