John, I respect you, I love your column, but honey....you just have to stop with the logic and reason. The whole notion of jobs putting food on the table is so passe, that's last century's economy. We are the ones we've been waiting for and that means broke, destitute, without hope, and leveled with the undeveloped, perennially autoritarian governed world. How can Obama possibly destroy capitalism and impose a steady state economy (ooops I mean transform us into)on the U.S. if businesses insist on making money, providing jobs, and offering goods and service? You really need to stop being such a troglodyte and figure out which archipelago your enforced labor could most benefit.
