Don't worry, a good job is on the way

General Electric is planning to move its 115-year old X-ray division from Waukesha, Wis., to Beijing.  In addition to moving the headquarters, the company will invest $2 billion in China and train more than 65 engineers and create six research centers. 

This is the same GE that made $5.1 billion in the United States last year, but paid no taxes. 

The same company that employs more people overseas than it does in the U.S.

So President Obama appoints GE Chairman Jeff Immelt to head his commission on job creation?  

Immelt is supposed to help create jobs?

I guess the president forgot to tell him in which country these jobs are supposed to be created.


  1. Sigh--And the hits just keep on coming.

  2. Probably the only way they could get that particular advanced technology to the Chinese. It's better to go there and make a small profit than to have them hack your system and just steal the plans eh?

  3. ...and Obama is just as bought and paid for as 99.9 percent of every other elected and appointed official in this country.

  4. C.O.C.K. Roaches, that's all they are.
    How could I have bought in the boy's hope and change line.
    Looks Hope is like Bob, dead.
    Change that is the chump change we are giveing you to continue work. Back in the day it was the white man that spoke with forked tongue, now you just don't know.

  5. Well, another instance of being screwed without even a kiss before hand. I'd have to say they even skipped the KY jelly.

  6. At the risk of sounding like a's pretty transparent. I'm not shocked. It's become the expected thing. We have slime balls controlling our destiny.

    Btw, Punch, convolutedly related...there are COCK roaches and there are KOCH roaches. Can you tell the difference?

  7. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    Unless there is a credible, viable progressive primary challenge to Obama, one that bases its campaign on a New New Deal, my task is to throw my little weight into the balance to move the incumbent in the direction that makes sense to me. That's why I'll be active in the campaign, why I plan to work for my values.

    I don't know whether we've been duped, but I know that the president watches the polls and his staffers monitor public opinion. I know from the sixties and seventies how activism matters. If the tea party has anything to teach us, it's that organization and focus create change. It's time for liberals to pull hard.

    Call me quixotic; call me naive; call me a grandparent. I'm won't quit doing what I can.
