    With all the unemployed Black folks in so many cities, some with 50% or better Black unemployment,
    the president has a New Deal Program to create jobs, not for our benefit but for the benefit of corporations that desire to outsource and don't give doggone about anything but the bottom line

    You can't make this stuff up!!!

    Report: Obama Launches New Program to Help Corporations "Take Advantage of Low Labor Costs" Abroad

    by David Sirota

    With the President Obama reversing his campaign promises on trade issues by pushing to pass NAFTA-style trade agreements with South Korea, Panama and Colombia, and with the unemployment crisis persisting, the key jobs question is once again front and center in American politics. Specifically: How do we create jobs here at home and build our most valuable 21st century industries?

    [Rajiv Shah, a 36-year old former undersecretary of the Department of Agriculture, now leads the U.S. Agency for International Development for the Obama administration. Under director Shah, the USAID will partner with private outsourcers in Sri Lanka to teach workers there advanced IT skills, as well as skills in business process outsourcing and call center support. Prior to the USDA, he worked for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, one of the leading private development organizations. ]Rajiv Shah, a 36-year old former undersecretary of the Department of Agriculture, now leads the U.S. Agency for International Development for the Obama administration.

    The first and foremost answer is that our government should stop doing stuff like the program described in this stunning new report from Information Week:

    U.S. To Train 3,000 Offshore IT Workers

    Despite President Obama's pledge to retain more hi-tech jobs in the U.S., a federal agency run by a hand-picked Obama appointee has launched a $22 million program to train workers, including 3,000 specialists in IT and related functions, in South Asia.

    Following their training, the tech workers will be placed with outsourcing vendors in the region that provide offshore IT and business services to American companies looking to take advantage of the Asian subcontinent's low labor costs..

    Keep n mind that Obama is just the figure head in this system. The American Ruling Class, remember them?, are the real rulers of this corporatocracy. Politicians are simple figure heads who have zero power unless seized and held over a fire. I think we need to check what my fav president who loved him some black booty said.(Paraphrase) "In the event the government does not serve for the welfare and livelyhood of the citizens, the citizens(who hav the right to bear arms) have the right to overthrow the government by their own will." This is not antigovernment proganda. This is the a quote for Thomas Jefferson as written in the constitution. I'll let u dig it up. This is also why it is crimina to give the Pentagon 800 billion dollars a year. A gov can easily hide behind all those expensive guns.

    My point in raising this ish is nether the president or the oligarchy but the imperative, that this action shows,

    the urgent imperative for us to start thinking seriously about Black Nationalism, across the 50 territories,
    and useing some of that 800 billion to provide our own food, clothing, shelter, utilities, media,
    and jobs

    as well as create opportunities for Black firms to outsource jobs remaining, to our family in the Motherland and help create a silicon valley there , and paradigm of technical literacy in the coninent that gave technology to the world.

    but here is another quote that no one has to look up;
    "People, governments and economies of all nations must serve the needs of multinational banks and corporations."
    Zbigniew Brzezinski

    The thing is that us governmental policy is not even driven by internal dynamics.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Globalization



    If we study the map (in the link) and look carefully at the network of trade relations prior to european colonialism one will find that many of these networks still exist though their development has become fragmented and uneven. As east African countries and those in southeast Asia have been increasingly independent they have been among the first to restore some of these networks along with links to their mother countries, chiefly great Britain. The united states tends to shadow these developments along with the British capitalists.

    As this phenomenon of globalization becomes more expansive on one hand, and more integrated on the other, expect for working class and minority communities in the united states to become increasingly marginalized as the displacement of this labor force is essentialy for the outward expansion of monopoly finance capitalism as internal markets become more constrictive.

    Given the fact that Obama's presidential campaign was supported financially (his money web) by Lehmans, and Goldman Sachs, given collapse of Lehman's and a few others, this leaves Goldman as the pivotal influence on Obama administration's economic policy, along with Warren Buffet's Berkshire.

    Yep . I read a book years ago about the Ottamans and how they reduced the Turkish empire to a bizness ran by the children of Shah Jahan , Aurenzeb, etc. The current rulers are their great grand kids. A british comp called "the Eastern Company" or something like that still runs Britain thru the royal fam. They are simply the financial geeks of both ex empires who make money over fightinhg wars directly, key word directly. The national debt also leaves us as slaves to china as they will build more wal marts,Target big boxes, dollar stores, etc to help collect their debt. They are off the coast of Florida digging oil and we can't say jack diddley becuz we owe them so much money. If we act up, they will summon their little pit bull in North Korea to bark at us and one day attack. if NK attacks now, we could be doomed. I just can't see troops who r commiting suicide at an ignored rate of 90 per month actually dealing with 2million well rested Koreans with an international community that is anxious to see us take it on the chin.

    Exactly and this is why China is still key as the main competitor of western capitalism since it was the conduit of the Opium and Silk Trade networks that the english and others funneled from India through China then westword through the caucusus mountains to "europe". That's why Turkey has been a key member of NATO. It serves as the last bastion of the Ottomans and is a buffer zone between east-west. It essentially was the seat of the Byzantine empire (modern Istanbul).

    I have been tracking this company for several years and its investor information is becoming more secretive and I have mentioned the western investment in this firm before in these threads.

    http://www.google.com/finance?client=ob&q=NYSE:PTR

    This is another link. Check some of its major shareholders. This is one of the main Chinese firms that has been operating in Darfur region of the Sudan.

    I am sure they also have a link in Somalia but its difficult to confirm.

    Take note of one company in particular.

    UBS Securities LLC which is one of PTR's major shareholders.

    Then look at Obama's Money web.

    http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/moneyweb.php

    Specifically UBS Ag.

    Wanna know exactly how some of these folks are scamming? A good source for that is also part of Obama's Money web (DLA Piper).

    http://www.dlapiper.com/improper-audits-in-china-us-accounting-regulators-express-concerns/

    DLA Piper had numerous employees who were Obama campaign bundlers and interestingly some of these were also part of the later opposition to health care reform. They were playing both sides and helped position Dick Armey's lobby group.
