yeah no kidding. i don't think people realize how many things are pumped out of sweet shops and other countries. the labor is much cheaper so you know the corporations are going to find a way to get maximum profit. when i was young i use to try to boycott things like Nike, McDonald's, proctor and gamble you name it. it just became kind of depressing though cause i knew even with me doing that there is still like a billion people that weren't. so i kind of gave up. i think i was just a little too intense in my teenage years about what i believed. now i'm more of a realist and down to earth. to each their own type of person.

It's true. It's funny how this obvious fact goes over so many people's heads. I think the simpsons could have a field day with the whole protest in Seattle thing.

So many people seem to have it in their heads that a corporation is some kinda evil living entity that sits atop the world and sucks all the money out of the poor, but stop and consider what a corporation is.

It's nothing more than a business owned and operated by investors and employees. Millions upon millions of investors and employees. You wouldn't wanna lash out and protest ALL THOSE people would you?
Surely there must be at least one nice guy in tha bunch.

Unless you're one of the lucky ones who are born rich, you get out of high school and look for work like anyone else. Maybe you go to university, or flip burgers or go to trade school or whatever. The choice is made by the individual. Perhaps you decide you wanna become, oh I dunno...a computer technician. So ya go to school, learn about computers, get out get a job and start earning money.

Maybe you work for a large corporation, or maybe just some independant computer store owner. Whatever. It's not the point what type of business employs you. What counts is that you're earning money. Then of course it's not enough to just have money. You'se gotsta have MORE money, man!! Am I wrong here? Sure ya might make a half decent wage doin what you're doin, but maybe ya start thinking you wanna build wealth for your future, so you decide to invest in...oh, let's say..Mutual Funds. When ya break it down, mutual funds are nothing more that an assortment of partial ownership of corporations. At least the stock portion of them, anyways.
So here you are, this happy fun lovin computer technician who is out on AdultFriendFinder, to meet and be nice to people and make friends, who also happens to be a partial owner of a corporation, and ALL these jackasses want to get their picket signs and protest you!

Of course now that they realize that you are innocent, these same people may have to hurry up and conjure up someone ELSE to blame theworld's problems on, so they'll say, "AAAAH Yeah, she may be a partial owner of a corporation, but the mutual funds companies are making money off her! RAH! RAH! The mutual funds companies! I knew it was them! Even when it was the BEARS, I knew it was them.

But what about, that nice fella who got out of college and didn't WANT to be a computer technician. No. HE was good at math, and had an interest in finance, so he decided to get a job with a mutual funds firm. Can't expect him to work for FREE, now can ya?

Surely you must have met the odd nice guy with an interest in finance?

Okay, now ya got tha sweat shop thing. Well first of all, we have to take into account the fact, that what we are talking about here is a labor force in a developing nation.

Everyone wants to go RAH! RAH! these people aren't being treated fairly. Well, I can't say, because I'm not there, but I'm quite sure that these people who work in the sweat shops aren't lassood by the hamburgler, and chained to a chair, and forced to sew shoelaces at gunpoint.

That is to say, that these people CHOOSE to work there. A dollar a day, may not sound like much here, but in some countries, you'de be GLAD to make a dollar a day.

I think people tend to view this as large businesses trying to save money and exploiting the poor. Well DUH!! Just kidding. I didn't mean it like that. What I'm trying to say, is that there is nothing free in this world. You're not going to simply hand over the money you are using to build wealth for your future to anonymous strangers over seas, and it is not likely that any of the other partial corporation owners are either.

I know I won't. I may decide to contribute 20 bucks a month or so to a charity organization, but I 'm not going to do anything that substantially reduces my wealth.

Yes, there are other nations in the world who aren't fortunate enough to be as advanced as we are, and until that happens, these people cannot simply get out of college and look for work like we can. But strides are made in that direction everyday.

In the meantime, why not let the poor fuckers make a buck?

Liv,
Did you hear about Al Gore's speech on the enviromental dangers associated with SUV's? When he left the speech to his hotel, he was taken in his caravan of Chevy Suburbans.

Shooter....

Woooff...Welcome to my blog. Look forward to your comments.

Right.Yes well. Thing is, I had written the comment with some amount of regard for you. Well,thank you for saying it was done by mistake.
Although you aren't apologetic are you?

If my presence is not regarded then I shall avoid this blog in the future - despite that I think you write very engagingly. As a person,
you are clearly an inconsiderate and frankly,cold personality.

Not that this is written in stone anywhere, but you could've always written back my comment on your own, with big block letters saying sorry woofff! deleted by mistake!.

Like, there's a real person behind the comment's facade who also got 'deleted' accidentally - yes I know about fakes and blah blah blah- but surely you do not weigh each comment thinking I wonder if a bot was made to write this. There is no way to know that. Although I doubt a bot would feel as aggrieved as me.

Whatever, man
W.

i understand what you are saying. i was just saying there is no point in really fighting it cause it is everywhere. weather ya like it or not. i guess i really didn't explain it well. i'm not always the best at explaining things. too many thoughts going through my head all at once, it all just gets muddled up and find it hard to express it in the way i intended. it's all good

I see what you're saying too, but I hope you don't feel defeated. I don't think you should ever stop fighting for something that is in the best interest of everyone, just because it's everywhere.

In my opinion, there's no point in fighting it, because there is no positive outcome that can come out of it. A person can protest all they want, but then what do they expect to happen. Suppose the developing nation imposed minimum wage laws. Now, the developed nations cannot afford as much labor in those countries. Maybe a few people would make more money, but far more would be completely without work altogether.

If Macdonald's was to turn around and pay everyone in the third world eight bucks an hour, then there would be far less profits, and far less money available to invest in new businesses which otherwise would have created more employment.

Creating ne businesses requires wealth beyond what someone earning minimum wage can afford. If you just distribute all the wealth evenly, then the economy would remain stagnant, and in fact many businesses would go under.

Allowing our countries the opportunity for people to build the wealth required to build businesses, over time will eventually lead to higher employment opportunities in the third world. It's the ol Adam smith's invisible hand theory.

It's a gradual process, and people just need to be more patient and concentrate on their own investments, instead of trying to protest, which if successfull, only slows this process.
