Saturday Open Thread [1.7.12]

Filed in Open Thread by on January 7, 2012

So Romney is heading for a blow out win in New Hampshire, although one poll show a Huntsman surge. But it is probably an outlier, and even in that poll, Romney still leads with 37. After New Hampshire, Huntsman drops out. The conservative remains divided until South Carolina between Perry, Gingrich, Perry and Santorum. Which is why Romney is leading in South Carolina, aided by a polling boost from a “win” in Iowa. If Romney wins there, it’s all over.

And conservatives will be left a candidate they absolutely hate.

    Seven or eight years ago I bought a book on how to clean up and organize the clutter in your house. My New Year’s resolution is to find that book.

    A good reason for Buy American clauses in government DOD procurements: US Aerospace and Defense Companies Set Up Shop in Mexico.

    But the main reason they come here is simple: the cost of even highly skilled labor is roughly half of what it is in the United States. In San Diego, a senior aerospace engineer makes on average $90,000. In Tijuana, an engineer with similar skills earns $35,000 to $45,000.

    It is bad enough to live with (and pay for) a policy that makes us the World’s Policeman, but to not pay Americans to build the infrastructure for this is criminal.

    They are a lot of democrats that think America can’t be competitive unless everyone makes $30k a year. It is bipartisanship.

    That’s what a lot of this week’s jobs numbers were about – unemployed people accepting lower pay, capitulating to a permanently lower standard of living.
