Bush Is Boeing Salesman And Works For Corporate Headquarters Outsourcing White Collar Jobs

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Bush blandly tells white collar workers that they will have fabulous new jobs if all their work is outsourced to India. India cheers him for saying this, after all, they pay zero American taxes on their labor so they can undercut competition in America! Whoopee! Meanwhile, our aerospace industry is interested in selling jets since this is all we have left to sell that is labor intensive capitalism. This leads to arming India and Pakistan. Also, Bush surrenders totally on the nuclear bomb issue, of course.

From Reuters:
President Bush met with Indian entrepreneurs and toured an agricultural university during a four-hour trip to the southern city of Hyderabad today, when he said that the United States should welcome rather than fear competition from India.

President Bush watched Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice walk through a receiving line at a state dinner in New Delhi Thursday. The president is on his first visit to India, and is to continue on to Pakistan tonight.

"People do lose jobs as a result of globalization and it's painful for those who lose jobs," Mr. Bush said at meeting with young entrepreneurs at Hyderabad's Indian School of Business, one of the premier schools of its kind in India. Nonetheless, the president said, "globalization provides great opportunities.
Shorter Bush: "I don't feel your pain."

Globalization does give great opportunities....for people who are traitors. The job losses are not being replaced with fabulous new jobs that pay more and do more, this is an across the board dissipation of the core of America's industrial and technological base. It has very dire downsides such as the demoralization of any American wanting to make a career in the sciences. You can't get work! No one wants to hire an American anymore. Even at lower pay. Because you are a citizen, you have some bare protections whereas green card workers can be fired and deported the minute they irritate the bosses.

So they never strike, never go looking for a better job, they give no hassles. The proliferation of these workers has downsides including the garbled language problems as more and more people do technical work and can't speak or write English very well.

Just like in the Roman empire, this fuels a spiral to the bottom. Education fails, multilingualism without comprehension causes the imperial tongue to deteriorate into exclusive sub-languages such as happened to the Roman empire deteriorating into Spanish, French, English, German, Italian, etc.
"The classic opportunity for our American farmers and entrepreneurs and small businesses to understand is there is a 300 million-person market of middle class citizens here in India, and that if we can make a product they want, that it becomes viable," Mr. Bush said at the business school.
Oh, yeah, we are going to see what small farmers and small businesses exporting to India? Huh?

Worse, this would merely undermine Indian farmers. But then, Europe's farmers are exporting food but they do this under European export umbrella organizations and even this is dicey, note how Danish food is now being boycotted by a billion people! Indians have no reason to want to buy American produce any more than the Japanese who also protect their farmers and exclude foreign produce especially American.

What are we going to sell India? Beef? Like, their is a huge market for eating holy cows? Huh?

In Japan, beef is consumed, it is very expensive and we can't import beef there.
Mr. Bush returned to New Delhi later in the day to deliver an outdoor evening speech at the city's Purana Qila, a 16th century fort built by the Afghan conqueror Sher Sha Suri. In the speech, billed as the major address of Mr. Bush's trip to India, Mr. Bush spoke of the "natural partnership" between the United States and India, including the major nuclear pact that he and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of India announced in New Delhi on Thursday.

The pact, which fills in the broad outlines of a plan that was negotiated in July, would help India satisfy its huge civilian energy needs while allowing it to continue to develop nuclear weapons.
Argh. So what Bush accomplished was the total surrender of America! We boycotted India, refusing to sell military stuff, because India build nukes! And we are threatening Iran for trying to emulate India? Huh?

This craven surrender is being trumpetted as some sort of victory. It is logical for India to arm itself with nukes just like it makes rational sense for Iran, even more so than India, to do the same. But we have to reconfigure the entire nonprolifieration treaty nonsense. Obviouisly, in a world destabilized by America's imperial wars, all nations must arm themselves with nukes as swiftly as possible. This won't stop WWIII but at least levels the playing ground, doesn't it?

In a horrible way.
