Please, Giant Multinational Corporations With No Incentive to Stay in America, Come Back to the U.S.

Obama's plea to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to be patriotic and bring jobs back to America is a total joke. The government itself has provided every incentive for companies to move jobs to developing nations for at least 40 years. The Obama Administration, with its newfound fear of angering the business world, has done nothing to change this. Playing on the patriotism of people whose only country is called Cash is embarrassing.

I have little doubt that CEOs are presently smoking giant cigars, drinking scotch, and laughing their asses off at Obama's plea in their smoky back rooms as I type this.

As a commenter to the linked piece says: "Perhaps they will grow white fluffy wings and descend to sprinkle us with flowers and distribute heavenly manna."
