Re: Re: Was NAFTA was a good idea?
I'm a little lost. How is it that U.S. citizens benefit from manufacture's farming out jobs to other countries? It's cheaper to make something somewhere else and trasport it thousands of miles back here? Why? It's better for a company to make a shirt in Mexico paying labor two dollars an hour or whatever instead of paying a U.S. citizen minimum wage? There should have been a provision forcing any U.S. company manufacturing outside our borders to comply with our minimun wage labor standards. I think this would be more in the spirit of what the politicians were feeding Americans when pushing this initiative. I see the logic in opening new markets for trade, as there are only so many consumers in the U.S. I don't see the logic in not paying the labor enough to buy our exports.

Some evidence attributes a certain neurological phenomenon to a near death experience.
Time of death is considered when a person has gone into cardiac arrest. This is the cessation of the electrical impulse that drive the heartbeat. As a result, the heart locks up. The moment the heart stops is considered time of death. But does death overtake our mind immediately afterward or does it slowly creep in?
