We have lots of money ... we buy lots of stuff

Who is we? Plus I dont agree with you - many things are tied together.

Deficit trading is what ruined us, wake up Zarni. It has to change.

Personally I love that people who make my products get paid $3.50 a day.

And I don’t care that they can’t afford products made here

How refreshingly elitist of you.

And how Ivory Tower.

1-800-contacts used to have the cheapest contacts in the Country. Until the owner of Johnson and Johnson called in his favor for giving campaign contributions. They made a law that nobody could sell contacts cheaper than the price J&J set. Sounds like free trade to me. Our internet and TV services show you how free trade can fail as well. The Telecommunications act of 1996 made sure of that. Now AT&T not only owns Time Warner but Direct TV as well.
