Of COURSE free and open trade should be supported and if it measn local business can't compete then they need to do somethgin to be more competitive. Anything else is government protection. I thought you preferred free capitalism ?
    Could you explain why GATT is bad for the world economy ????
    Because it's way lopsided... the U.S. imports far more than it exports under GATT.

    Statistics show that many of the jobs added in the last 2 years have been high-level jobs.

    So just like that you will rule out all jobs being created from anything that i said?
    Because Tax cuts make jobs simple as that you should be in the white house you spin the same shit as them.
    You have Army Reserves like we do?. Last i herd from a American news program was the Number of people into the Army Reserves was at a all time high.
    Hey someone has got to build them weapons Hummers Tanks Ammo buildings etc at record rates to i bet, You can't say jobs haven't come from that and it wouldn't be like a couple of hundred extra jobs.

    Given your past history Could you please provide those statistics ??

    e.g. Bureau of Labor Statistics (http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.toc.htm) shows that the average income only rose 42c in the last year - that is 2.4% GROWTH. Now given that their IS inflation in that growth then clearly most of that is in inflation tracking.
    IF there was many jobs added of high-level jobs paying more then the average would have grown above inflation and if your implication were valid then it would have been WELL ABOVE inflation.

    Care to explain ????

    Heres another bit of information for Fleet to deny, twist, and ignore as soon as he's proven wrong: The requirements to get into the armed forces have been lowered. Ten years ago, you needed to pass certain tests to be allowed in, but now they will accept ANYONE. Even the retarded (I don't give a damn about political correctness) are allowed in. That comment about bums being pulled off the street was more accurate than you would think.

    update .... http://news.moneycentral.msn.com/tic...Symbol=US:MSFT

    a possible nail in the coffin for ONE of the providers of US electronic voting machines.

    Spot the article ... they "lost" 4,400 votes in a marginal local election.

    It's never a good idea to put blind faith in technology OR governments !!!!

    As an aside, it's crazy to restrict them because they chose to use Windows ! OR to require the names of all developers given that a Windows developer could not have put a trap in to disrupt a vote application. Mind you probably equally as crazy to use Windows to build a simple voting machine out of
