Students these days...

What was that?

Students these days...

Postby aviationwiz on Mon Mar 15, 2004 6:21 pm

What's happened to Students these days? OK, you all know I'm a student, but really, come on.

The girl I am refering to is a freshman in high school, which in my district is 9th grade.

She is in my spanish class, this is how I know. We are doing the months of the year in Spanish, and she said out loud once, that she does not know the order of the months of the year, in English! I mean come on, you must know the months of the year.

Here's some education.

I see your avatar says John Kerry for President 2004

Did you know the Heinz company, the one his wife inherited, has 57 plants outside North America, and 72 percent of its workforce as well.

THATS OUTSIDE NORTH AMERICA!

And he says he wants to bring jobs to the USA

HE should start by talking to his wife

Is she in charge of moving company workers and plants from the USA to other countries? I'm not sure to be honest. The idea is to make it so that it is less appealing for corporations to ship jobs overseas. Currently, if a company chooses to move it's plants and jobs overseas to other countries, that move is being subsidized by the American Tax-Payer.

Bro my point was, He came up with a plan to bring 10 million jobs to the USA if he becomes president.

The company his wife owns, and he has invested stock in, has the majority of thier jobs outside of North America

72 Percent of thier workforce

57 plants, which is more then half of Heinz

How can he even talk about big business when the one he partially owns, and his wife inherited is one of the worst offenders?

Bro you cannot defend that.
