I guess I shouldn't be surprised that "IT (so-called) pundit" Mumbai Don Tennant would pipe in to regurgitate the NBC GE thing. Not like any of the commenters are having any of it-- especially this guy, 'Doc Savage':
"I am sure back in post civil war America, when the European and Caribbean immigrants were being used to replace the newly freed slaves, as America's primary agricultural workforce, someone was out there talking it up as being the best way to get America back on track to be the most successful Industrialized nation. But Frederick Douglas brought to the attention of the nation through his writings about the issue, that it was harmful to the worker. He referred to this labor type as 'Coolie Labor' and compared it to 'Slave Labor' in it's value and moral corruption.
Don - If you are truly a globalist, then your focus should be for the manifestation of equality for all workers in the world through FAIR TRADE, not free trade, Equal pay for equal work should be your mantra, not the chant of 'MORE NON-IMMIGRANT LABOR'.
If you can't see this then you are as blind as the Indian Agent of the 19th century that believed taking the Native American from his ancestral home and civilize him would mean sustaining their people for generations to come.
We all know how that turned out.
As for the fiery rhetoric of people over this issue, well Don, if the government were to come into your home and replace your wonderful wife with a sow and your kids with mindless zombie piglets, would you consider that fair trade, being that it would be cheaper to have pets than family? Would you not fight against such a fascist idea? Would you not have ripe vernacular for those forcing you to accept such a ridiculous exchange?
Now you can see why people like myself would rather see you and those other pundits of the labor replacement cult hung by your thumbs and see the livestock you are forcing onto us turned into sausages."

I'm liking this Doc Savage guy. And recommend you read his entire comment for historic context. Something Mumbai Don seems to lack in his "posts".
Personally, I'm not to partial to sausage tho'. Unless I'm peckish.Drunky out.
