ask this question....Who said we had to compete like this with one another for
jobs in a global economic arena? How many of us would have voted
for free trade if it had to be ratified by a
popular vote? If we keep doing things
the same way all we get is the same results. Free trade has
25 years failure rate.

trade had to be ratified by a popular vote, it is fair to say, none of the trade agreements would have passed.
Globalization and free trade have not evolved in any natural fashion but have been driven by powerful forces outside the will
of the people. When this is left out of any discussion about the so called flat world, it makes the rest of events really
President Obama bailed out the money changers who were in charge of this failed system
and put them back in charge while he ignored the suffering and losses of the working class. See http://tapsearch.com/communications-by-rank

Welcome Dysfunctional Globalists and
Dislocated Workers who have no voice
or Free Trade process. It's really all about you in the New World Dis-Order !
A Book Review - The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman of N Y Times )
Pass on site to all in the world dedicated
to workers dignity - South America,
Europe, Middle East etc. For more articles click expert author above. It is really all about you in the global economic
The basic problem is this:
The Federal Reserve Bank prints money images on paper and calls it money. The value
of the paper is relative to the power and the economic investments based on this paper, interest rates and stock
values. It is not based on an "absolute" value as it once was when it was based on the gold standard.
Instead, usury interest rates captures both individuals and nations. Labor is the only variable value and it is exploited
down to the levels of wage slave and even child labor. It is a new kind of slave trade, colonialism and imperialism where
raw Capitalism mixes with Communism and Socialism in a Globalism stew. It makes a mockery of the Free Enterprise system.
Our main expert
sources include Chuck Harder, Manuel Castell, Sir James Goldsmith, Representative Marcy Kaptur and Doctor Pat Choate.
We also include the Catholic Workers and its founders Peter Maurin and Dorothy Day. They maintained that business
should make it easier for men and women to be good. Pat Buchanan and others were instrumental in a Populist response
but were quickly put aside. However, the Populist movement is coming like a tidal wave from South America and the USA is too
busy in the Middle East to stop it. Bishops like St Alberto Hurtado led the way fifty years ago. Other South American
and Catholic Bishops and priests were martyrs in recent times. There is also Bishop Ramazzini who renounced
CAFTA in the U.S. Congress. Unfortunately in our country we have a President of a Jesuit University backing someone like Thomas
Friedman. At the same time, however, we do have the Jesuit volunteers who work for social justice across the globe.
There is also Rerum Novarum - an open letter by Pope Leo on the conditions of labor in 1891. It was a standard for a
very long time in the labor relations. However, today many people of good will say, I believe
in most of the spiritual and social justice things like you, but we must adjust to the real world.
The real world today has President Bush saying his favorite philosopher was Jesus. His actions say something else.
His actions say - It's nothing personal , I am just taking care of business.
now include John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man and The Secret History of the American Empire. Our
stories about the demise of local value added economies fit with his in the global economic arena.
All should read his books. No matter what you conclude about the man, the events are obviously real and you do not need any
conspiracy theories to make your own conclusions.
There is also Congressman Dennis Kucinich and Ralph Nadar who are right about many
of these things. However, Dennis forgets that abortion and his ultra left positions are geopolitical contradictions.
The only real variable in the Flat or Round World is the
cost of labor. Everything else is just a few percentage points or degrees apart and a good society is only as good
as it treats all the parts for the benefit of the whole.
The word "corker" describes a remarkable person, an argument that appears
conclusive or a preposterous lie. It seems the book the World is Flat by Thomas Friedman may have all three in one....
It's a "corker"! Thomas Friedman flys around the world searching for his Flat World.(Actually, you don't need to fly anywhere to explore the Flat World- just take a few cab rides with drivers from all over the world, Ask a few questions about their lives as
you drive by places in our cities that now look like third world countries too. )

Explore Lost Worlds in the Globalist
Free Trade Flat World of Thomas Friedman, the Clintons and the Bush family - and now President Obama ! - Our book review
of The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman from the New York Times starts below...
Below: This is primarily a book review of The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman - by Ray Tapajna, Editor and Artist
at Tapart News and Art that Talks, who describes Friedman's book as a "corker" - Ray
forcasted the economic crisis. Economies based on making money on money instead of making things are burning out.
The deflation of the value of workers and labor has now affected the value of money. See Chronicals of events behind
the financial crisis at http://tapsearch.com/tapartnews
While Thomas Friedman rides planes to far away places and talks to world leaders about the wonders of globalism
and safeguarding the ecology, Ray takes rides with cab drivers who come from all over the world and tell it like it is.
He also drives down miles of main streets in major cities with empty stores and empty factories. He drives down the
main streets in small towns with rows of empty stores while outside of the towns are Walmarts selling imports made by impoverished
workers. Imagine all the people that once were a hub of lively business activity in these places across the USA. Now
those who are left are part of the new working poor class in the USA. And Ray writes about the 8000 mile
energy saving light bulb that takes 8000 miles, protective packaging to get to the USA after being made in questionable
mercury "dirty" factories . After miles of long haul shipping by ocean and some by plane that consume
loads of energy while polluting the air , the 8000 mile light bulbs arrive in shipping containers from the giant
Chinese COSCO shipping company which is owned in part by the Chinese Liberation Army! See http://www.phillyfuture.org/node/5298 and http://www.phillyfuture.org/node/5297
First of all, Thomas Friedman fables ignore the fact
that workers have no voice in the process of globalization even though they are the heart and center of any economy.
2nd. Friedman 's book is fiction. His statistics
do not compute with the past. For example the unemployment reporting was much different in the 1970s. Click on http://tapsearch.com/tapartnews home about this fabrication. Only 38% of all workers in the USA qualify for unemployment insurance. This would have
triggered a Congressional investigation in the 1970s
3rd. His "flatteners" reverse the cause and effect
of things like the fall of the Iron Curtain and the Y2k crisis. Was the fall of the Iron Curtain the flattener or was it Roosevelt
at Yalta when he gave one half of Europe to the Communists? - or was the Lend Lease Act the ultimate flattener.
This was real Free Trade- see http://ezinearticles/com/?id=390710 Was the real flattener behind Y2k, the India programmers comming to the rescue or was Free Trade the cause which resulted
in over a million workers in the U.S. losing their jobs in the computer industry. Another flattener should be Truman
allowing the Communists to take over China as millions of Nationalist Chinese were forced ot flee for their lives. It changed
the course of Asia. And the end of the story is yet to unfold.
Free-Trader Globalists call for a borderless world economy but in the USA, we have
States competing with one another for foreign auto assembly factories paying out up to 400 million dollars to entice them
to their State. This comes after thousands of auto workers losing their jobs with the new jobs for only a fraction
of the old workers at half the pay. In the end, taxpayers are paying up to $200,000 per job
and it is impossible to get a return on this investment for the people of the particular State. See http://tapsearch.com/tapartnews/id37.html Indiana wins over Ohio for Honda Assembly Plant while Gambling Casino money is given to Honda. At most
only 2000 jobs will be created while about 20,000 auto parts workers lose their jobs. Adding up all of the Indiana money
to get and support Honda, it costs taxpayers $200,000 per job. And Alabama is paying KIA $400 million dollars
to build their assembly plant there. This is an Implosion in Friedman's Flat World. And imagine what 400 million automobiles
in China and India would do to the world.
Friedman says some are and will lose their jobs. His "some" is now
a sum of a millions. The USA has suffered the largest dislocation of jobs in its history including the Great Depression.
Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans exposed a Silent Depression residing throughout the USA. Personal and Business bankruptcies
have broken records for years. This matches up with the massive Trade Deficits that keep breaking records. ( Summary of this

The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first
Century by Thomas L. Friedman
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
Ray Tapajna, advocate for workers dignity and local value added economies, has dedicated an entire website countering the
concepts of Thomas Friedman based on real world experience for more than sixty years from the factory floors to the highest
echelon of corporate management. See http://tapsearch.com/flatworld
You can also see more at http://tapsearch.com/amazon-friends
Ray confronts Friedman version of his "Flatteners" and shows the real world sequence of events from the real work
world. Friedman's ignores the fact that workers have had no voice in the process of globalization and free trade and perpetuates
communications by rank and plantation owner mentality. If free trade bills were subject to a popular vote, none of them would
have passed. It is also obvious free trade and globalization did not evolve in any natural economic fashion but were driven
by powerful forces outside the will of the people and outside of any real democratic process.
