NBC's Williams Fantasizes Over Change in Constitution Allowing Obama to Control Business by Fiat
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 12/07/2012 5:47:36 PM PST by chessplayer

In an interview with Apple CEO Tim Cook for Thursday's NBC Rock Center, host Brian Williams wondered why the tech giant couldn't be a "made-in-America company" and outlined a political scenario in which President Obama was all-powerful: "Let's say our Constitution was a little different and Barack Obama called you in tomorrow and said, 'Get everybody out of China and do whatever you have to do, make these, make everything you make in the United States.'"

Cook responded by suggesting American workers simply didn't have the capacity to manufacture Apple products: "Over time, there are skills that are associated with manufacturing that have left the U.S., not necessarily people, but the education system stopped producing them."

Maybe this Admin could relax all their onerous regulations, etc, and jobs would come back. Trump said one reason jobs left is because it is much easier, AND CHEAPER, to start and continue a business elsewhere.

Brian Williams is an idiot. And a very useful one at that. When they get their wish, they will wish that they never wished for it.

Tim Cook is spot on, our unionized, leftwing education system does not produce intelligent, skilled adults.

He’s an idiot. We could produce intelligent, skilled adults in a few years if we had any interest in having State Technical Colleges in the America. But, the money is in the 4 year degree (money for the school, not necessarily for the student) so that’s all they push. Who wants to spend 4 years learning how to program PLCs or maintain industrial robotics as we ship all those jobs overseas?

Start bringing the manufacturing jobs back and smart kids and adults will start learning the skills. No one is going to take out a student loan to learn how to make a buggy whip.

So these media idiots want Obama to run more of the economy. Obama already tried with Solydra and other green projects, the stimulus etc. and that was an abysmal failure as have been all socialist endeavors in the past. These media socialists would have us believe that socialism never worked because they didn't have the right ones running it ( what a laugh) . their one already proved to be a failure in just trying a few green projects like Solyndra etc.

How is that working out in Cuba and North Koreaa, venezuela , not good at all as the people there are starving slaves.

These media idiots are for a socialist dictatorship where Obama runs everything. This moron couldn't make a lemonade stand profitable much less run millions of businesses at the same time in real time as government takes days just to make 1 decision that is usually wrong and for the wrong reasons (solydnra , volt etc?.

no man can run the millions of transactions that happen in the free market every day even if that man were an intelligent, competent businessman which this pos isn't.

Ayn Rand covered this well in Atlas Shrugged. People were moving to Colorado for the freedom to run a business, so the federal government created a ‘Unification Board’ to determine who could move and where, if at all. All in the name of fairness, mind you. She really had these jokers pegged.

“.......American workers simply didn’t have the capacity to manufacture Apple products: “Over time, there are skills that are associated with manufacturing that have left the U.S.,.....”

I’m for keeping all we can, and bringing back all we can, but the man is absolutely correct in his assessment.

One thing that comes to mind is mfg printed circuit boards. Every electronic device has one or more of them, and they are much smaller and more intricate than they were when the technology left here.

We could bring it back and crank it up, but I don’t know about the workforce to get the job done. Those asians will work 12 hours or more a day on jobs akin to picking fly shit out of pepper for a spoonful of rice, 3 noodles and a fish head. All our people are on gubmint dole. I think it’s waaaay too late to turn it around. I hope someone proves me wrong.

""Let's say our Constitution was a little different and Barack Obama called you in tomorrow and said, 'Get everybody out of China and do whatever you have to do, make these, make everything you make in the United States.'"

A 'litttle different'?

What a constitutionally-illiterate human being!!!

Was it for this kind of intellectual midget that millions of freedom-loving Americans have sacrificed their lives and liberties?

Any citizen who would trust the judgment of any one, or of any collection of imperfect elected officials, to make such decisions on behalf of every other citizen, simply does not understand the history of civilization's struggles against such arbitrary power.

Is it possible that Williams has read the stories of those brave and courageous souls who, risking their own "lives, property, and sacred honor," signed our Declaration of Independence from such an arrogant and petty tyrant?

So-called "Progressives" are determined to set the cause of liberty back more than two centuries, embracing the Old World ideas from which their ancestors fled, and they have found their man who, given the chance, would take us in that direction, all the while calling it "forward."

In the semantics of "progressives," indeed, backward is "forward" and into the darkness which existed before the light of liberty brought enough opportunity, creativity, productivity, prosperity and plenty to bring hope and help to the entire world.

"Posterity: you will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it." - John Quincy Adams

"The people have almost always expected to be served gratis, and to be paid for the honour of serving them; and their applauses and adorations are bestowed too often on artifices and tricks, on hypocrisy and superstition, on flattery, bribes, and largesses. . . . The people in America have now the best opportunity, and the greatest trust, in their hands, that Providence ever committed to so small a number, since the transgression of the first pair: if they betray their trust, their guilt will merit even greater punishment than other nations have suffered, and the indignation of heaven. - John Adams, January, 1787

>>Not very many high school graduates are ready to learn anything.

We teach children that a university education leading to a professional career is the only path to success. Not everyone wants to be an doctor, lawyer, or MBA. A lot of people like to work with their hands, but we’ve shipped all those jobs overseas or given them to illegals who work for almost nothing. The kids have no motivation to learn anything.

Even a kid who wants to be an engineer quickly learns that engineering is a dead-end job in this country unless you get the business degree to move you quickly into management while you are young.

Create the opportunities and pay the people you can find now well, and more people will start training to get in. In other words, subsidize what you want to grow.

In essence, yes, but they’ll avoid such an outright Soviet maneuver.

Instead, they’ll abuse the Commerce Clause and force a business that leaves one state to pay taxes and unemployment the to the former state, so, in essence, there will be “no escape.”

Because their goal is to bring us down to the third-world status, which they have to do from within.

When Obammie the Commie said that you can’t change DC from within DC, I’m surprised no one made the obvious point that Obammie the Commie was proving the point that he does not want to change DC, that is why he is there.

He doesn’t want to change DC, he wants to increase the speed of the direction DC is headed and where it is dragging the country: over the cliff and into the sewer.

When you argue with a leftist about ‘socialism’, they claim that we aren’t a socialist nation because the government doesn’t own the means of production. My answer is always, ‘The government doesn’t need to ‘own’ property when they can control it through regulation and taxation.’
(Actually, we’re operating under ‘Corporatism’ as Mussolini defined it.)

I design printed circuit boards. I get the bare boards made in America (I use a company either in CA or WI), and I have them populated by one of three companies here in the Twin Cities.

Most electronic assembly is very mechanized. Solder paste is stenciled on. The pick and place machines are very fast and cool to see operate. The boards then go through a reflow oven and voila!. Done. It’s cheaper overall (since we have more control over the process) to have them made here.

Perhaps this is why Apple IS starting to move assembly back here to the States.

“Apple is planning to build a $100 million facility in the U.S. next year to build Ipads.”

I’ll bet that they DON’T build it in California. I wouldn’t be surprised if they choose to build in a right-to-work state.

Apple’s data centers are being built in Maiden NC and Prineville OR. I think there are plans for a third one somewhere in Nevada.

Although they’ve just started the new corporate headquarters building (known as the “spaceship”), I’m wondering if they won’t eventually move the company itself from California to a more corporate-friendly state...

Okay, okay. My frame of reference was the mid to late 70s when I was Mfg. Engineer on dental instruments. I attended a seminar or two on improving soldering, etc. I encountered people from the electronic field who were having fits over automating circuit board wave soldering, etc., and trying to get REPETETIVE DEPENDABLE results. In 1980 I changed career fields and never looked back.

Michigan Poised to Become Right to Work State; Protesters Shout 'Heil Hitler' in Response

The House and Senate each passed bills on the same day they were introduced that give private and public sector workers the right to avoid paying union dues in an organized workplace. Only police officers and firefighters would be exempt.

Lt. Gov. Brian Calley repeatedly gaveled for order during the Senate debate as Democrats attacked the legislation to applause from protesters in the galley. At one point, a man shouted, "Heil Hitler! Heil Hitler! That's what you people are." He was quickly escorted out. Another later yelled, "We will remember in November."

Amazing.

The level of disconnect between what the communist agenda "liberal and progressive" supporters of socialism on a state and national level is beyone measure.

Just yesterday, one of their very same communist agenda "liberal and progressive" national socialists...

In an interview with Apple CEO Tim Cook for Thursday's NBC Rock Center, host Brian Williams wondered why the tech giant couldn't be a "made-in-America company" and outlined a political scenario in which President Obama was all-powerful: "Let's say our Constitution was a little different and Barack Obama called you in tomorrow and said, 'Get everybody out of China and do whatever you have to do, make these, make everything you make in the United States.'"

Vapid. Stupid.

They are beyond any hope of educating themselves out of the hole they are digging.

Best thing is to let it fail, crash around them in utter destruction and let them starve.
