Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have this reputation of being this fringe fanatic, the guy holding the Armageddon is Soon sign.  A tin foil hatter.

The reality is that markets have not been "free" for quite some time.  "Free" means subsidized by manipulated governmental policy on a global basis.  "Free" means subsidized by the financial houses of the entire western world.  "Free" means shipping lanes protected by the western world.

"Free" markets means the gold rush that is the rest of the world is NEVER Ever published or spoken about in domestic US "media".

Fuck "free" markets for the concept of exploited people for profit comes from Satan himself.

You've lost your sense of humor again, Horseman.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.

It is several things.  The calculated de-construction of a barely functioning manufacturing company based in the US.  It is the future Yale business school case study of an "American" company who "screwed up" and offered a far too generous "early retirement" package.  Well the real workers, those who knew how to do things beneficial to the company took "the package" knowing full well that disruptive technology would soon obsolete their jobs.

Me coming from advanced research I know that the shit you buy is crap and would last ten times longer, burn brighter save for the fact that assholian bean counters mandate that in this country sans the slave labor of China one must make seven thousand of these pieces of shit they sell you at Walmart per hour.

I am after your freeerisa.com golden parachute package and your reservation to your personal underground safehouse "secure location" don't you know.
