"Where the Good Jobs Are Going"
Since I don't read the mainstream magazines, I missed this TIME magazine article about software jobs being sent overseas [link above]. I have posted and written about the subject before, but it is always good to revisit.
However, let's not forget this - Remember what all the free trade cultists said during the NAFTA and GATT discussions: These were the jobs of the future, the experts told us. The jobs that were going to save our country after the manufacturing jobs left for cheaper labor. Now, the high wage jobs are leaving for nations where the labor is cheaper.
When are our leaders going to wake up?

Saudis linked to Sept. 11
It was only a matter of time until some of the censored parts of the 9/11 report got out. The New York Times is reporting that two of the Sept. 11 hijackers may have been Saudi intelligence agents reporting to the Saudi government: ["Report on 9/11 Suggests a Role by Saudi Spies"].
I guess the next question to our president is "Eh, when does the regime change operation start in Saudi Arabia?" It is too bad that we have spent billions and needless American deaths have occured to topple Saddam because now we don't have the cash - or wherewithal - to take out a greater enemy in Saudi Arabia. But or course, the invasion of Iraq was never really about Sept. 11, as we have seen. It was about controlling the oil market for the next century.
