Perhaps the Democrats should simply mirror the 1970s/1980s GOP strategy by focusing on the foreign and economic issues while keeping the social issues on the platform, but not pushing them. I mean, the working class is an important constituentcy but so is the civil rights community. The DNC must balence between the working class and libertarian democrats (like myself) because I can see myself as a republican if the conservative part of the democrats take control. I think we should focus on ALL issues when dealing with judicial appointments and stop trying to block abortion or restrictions in which we know the opposition has a good point (partial-birth with "self defense" exceptions and other restrictions on the state level that have proper bypasses). Perhaps we should just put Casey v. Planned Parenthood as our protective precedent while advocating social services to prevent abortions. All I am trying to say is perhaps we should basically state that criminalizing abortion is not the answer to the abortion problem while trying to balence our party's base. We need both the working class and civil rights activists.

or start building parts of fission power generators and filling out orders for the ITER thermonuclear energy project which is beginning.

can't argue with that....but I don't waiting 5 years in order to make 6 figures. I do want to get out of debt...and though the CoL in Colorado is high, its not THAT high.

let me think back to my int'l econ class. we clearly have the comparative adv in capital-intensive goods. i suppose that includes service industries too, like financial stuff, legal services, etc. but i don't see how manufacturing could just completely go overseas. i think as market barriers are relaxed and we become more of a global market, american wages will fall and the auto industry will stay. that's the free market for you.

but with automation, automobiles are no longer as capital-intensive but can be more personalized...the skills can also be more easily reproduced with just pennies on our dollar.

We need something that only we can do feasibly, think new energy technologies, agricultural technologies, and medicines for the permanetly injured and terminally ill(this will likely become a big issue the increased prevelence of birth defects, "prosperity diseases" and the increase expectations of the populace for health and personal sex appeal.

I mean, we know not to ask anymore than $40,000.00 from the Family Research Concil, Planned Parenthood or the Southern Poverty Law Center, but we know that we must refuse if an offer of $99,999.99 from a firm that represents a bunch of companies who own their own 20-story office towers. But what about your more traditional job in the big city at a start up or botique firm or with the feds.

You know what, what DO YOU consider reasonable?

Errrmmm.... Does it make more people more better off for America or the someone else to build cars?

One thing that isn't being discussed in this conversation is the structure of the world economy. Do the rules of comparitive advantage(right-liberal to left-center theory)/(leftist theory)world system theory favor the U.S. to be a major auto maker?

I think the low 50s is, but there are those who think that is greedy and there are those who claim that $53,000.00 a year is insulting for a new attorney, if not humiliating. I would consider $100,000 greedy, $49,000 insulting and $38,000 humiliating.
