Wow, you argue in favor of offshoring and have no idea what offshoring means.

What you describe with the Japanese televisions is normal business competition. A Japanese company with Japanese employees produced a superior product and proceeded to eat the lunch of American companies who would not or could not compete.

Offshoring is the intentional displacement of American workers by American companies because they can get an inferior product cheaply and they think they can get away with it.

Here are some examples:

Chrysler exported their auto manufacturing to Mexico to churn out cheap PT Cruisers and other vehicles. This was "the giant sucking sound" that Ross Perot warned about. They have yet to recover from that debacle.

Meanwhile Japanese companies bring more and more manufacturing to the United States due to the experience and quality of the workmanship.

Tech companies outsourced their support organizations to India because, surprise! Cheaper. Then they were shocked to find out that their customer base didn't LIKE talking to Indian or Phillipino tech support. That's all coming back now too.

The most egregious example of outsourcing was fast food restaurants connecting their drive through order boxes to prison labor in other states. Hey, why pay soneone minimum wage to take orders when you can pay Joe the Rapist pennies?

Yeah, that didn't fly either, soon reversed.

The base of all this is like most Republicans you live in your own little bubble and have no clue how the world actually works.

Please, please, please educate yourself before trying to make more silly arguments on the Internet.

In fact, here's a hand up:

Pick up a couple of books, read them and let me know what you think. They are absolute eye openers:

Free Lunch: How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich Themselves at Government Expense (and Stick You with the Bill)

Perfectly Legal: The Covert Campaign to Rig Our Tax System to Benefit the Super Rich--and Cheat Everyone Else

(Hot damn, he has a new one, I didn't know that! Goes to bookstore...)
