Bay Area Offshoring American Jobs by Liberals

By FortWayne   2013 Mar 13, 12:51pm   1,572 views   18 comments   watch (0)   quote      

For all you liberals who blame Republicans for offshoring jobs, here are your fellow liberals bringing them by a boat load. This was all over NPR celebrated like it's greatest thing since bubble gum.

I guess Mitt Romney was right.

Just finished hours of research & found that there will not be any conservative investment capital accepted & only liberal entrepreneurs need apply. lol

apple should move Foxcom to Labor sweat shop cruise ships that are floating factories just a few hundred yards off shore.

Or better yet a floating ship so rich investors and software developers, anyone that can work remotely could work tax free. Gotta love innovation by Liberals, we'll take that shit and beat them over the fucking head every damn time.

Fuck I can just see a floating Wall street armada off the coast of New York with 10's of thousands of Investor titans, working tax free.

Good job fuckers.

And OH! I can actually say all that with out my mouth making wet clicking and clacking noises, those NPR pretentious fucks!

Hey FortWayne,

I don't think this article says what you think it says, but that is beside the point. This is not a "Liberal" endeavor. Peter Thiel is well known as a Libertarian (with Republican leanings) who supported Ron Paul and Meg Whitman.

Sorry, HEY YOU maybe if you spend another 5 minutes in your research. ;)

Capitalism does not discriminate too much between liberal or conservative leanings and I don't doubt that there are probably plenty of examples of real liberals who partake in "traditional" outsourcing.

Show me the money. Now that slave labor is becoming expensive in China, I wonder if Africa will be the next untapped frontier of cheap labor?

I agree how ever...

Seriously? Meg Whitman and Libertarian in one sentence?

Feel free to take it up with Peter Thiel.

Not enough IQ points on that continent.

Wouldn't an office in China, India, Vietnam, Philippines. or maybe Bulgaria be cheaper to operate than a cruise ship

What's so ridiculous about it?

As a former Libertarian myself, there's no conflict at all. I excused the fact that I voted straight Republican when no Libertarian was present, as just a coincidence. I was "independent" after all and it just SO HAPPENED that I defaulted to Republican because no Democrat EVER agreed with my views.

Their bank accounts are already offshore, they don't have to inconvenience themselves. I know Romney is offshore financially, but plenty of politicians on both sides of the isle do that too.

Yeah that is the problem. The rich set up shell corporations and all sorts of stuff legally. Corporations do the same. It is only middle class people who are affected by stupid laws like FATCA that Obama passed and is still pushing for with gusto. Considering he was an expat as a child, one would think he would at least know the consequences? But then he is a constitutional scholar who signed on to NDAA.

You beat me to it - why are these guys picking on software engineers who make maybe $100-200k rather than picking on wall street guys making 5-10x as much? Why not offshore THOSE jobs?

The idea to park a cruise ship full of engineers off California shore has been floated several times since 1999. But it was never able to hold water.

This story has the makings of a Bondesque supervillan lair...

Not to mention the hilarity that will ensue when Norwalk or some even nastier virus incapacitates all these workers packed into their floating techno-slum. I suspect their master will just trigger the flame-units to sterilize the ship so they can start over.

Sounds like a typical Carnival Cruse.
