    American Factory

    I've been watching the documentary "American Factory" on Netflix today. I was surprised to find out President Obama owns the company that produced it. You know, he was a shitty President but his film side seems to be rather solid. It seems like a pretty good documentary. It really shows how American culture and Chinese culture just does not mesh at all. The Chinese factory owner seems like a sweat shop owner in the early 1900's.

    Anyone else watch it? Thoughts?

    49.23%FE
    48.82%
    54.94%
    47.58%
    46.11
    44.47
    42.76
    41.56

    52.69
    50.23
    38.88

    fat cats.

    so this material is ave of 45.1164286% FE
    and is 5'5"x124'8". goes down at a 75 degree angle,
    and is open down and to the NE. MSB shot up, but these guys are trading at a historical low.

    if you follow the tailings dam break in brasil, that parellelled the spike in iron. after the new FE is introduced unto to market, the price slips alittle bit. looks like if my guys are presently mining the inferred stoping material, they are only chipping out the CU band. theyre selling 26.5% copper at 74 cents a pound. so whoever is buying it, is processing the iron and gold from it to make a profit from buying it at $2.80 per pound and paying transportation.

    I now see what you are saying. Copper is a great measure of our economy. Someone is getting screwed at a $2.80 per and more shipping when they can't afford the price of leaching (I read allot) and have to give it away.

    Figures the Majik Negroid would get involved in agitation films.

    Look. There's a simple solution to the problems of new owners who are not tolerable.

    LEAVE. FIND OTHER WORK. I did it, when my railroad was taken over by a larger concern, who seemed eager to cultivate personnel turnover; who lengthened our workday from an average seven hours to twelve...while still paying piece rates.

    I left. Yes, it was painful. Life is hard.

    If people shun these Chinese-owned operations, eventually they'll learn. Or they'll close them - which is what would have happened if the Chinese had been forbidden to buy them, anyway.

    Barry Hussein might ask if the Swedish people at Volvo are grateful for Chinese ownership, after Ford had to sell them, on the verge of bankruptcy. It probably isn't as nice a place to work, but - again - they have the right to vote with their feet. But the alternative would have been a closing of Volvo, just like the closing of Saab when GM couldn't sell Saab.

    Obamas’ Netflix Documentary ‘First Big Anti-Trump Statement of 2020’

    The documentary focuses on a Chinese billionaire who opens a factory “in the husk” of an abandoned General Motors plant, hiring 2,000 blue-collar Americans.
    Journalist Ted Johnson labeled it the Obamas’ “first big anti-Trump statement of 2020” in an opinion piece published Tuesday by Politico.

    “Its message is clear: Trump’s promise to reinvigorate the industrial heartland is going to take a lot more than a campaign slogan. There are no easy solutions. And if some manufacturing jobs do come back, they’re going to look nothing like they used to,” Johnson wrote.

    “Americans will have to accept a new reality to stay competitive in the global marketplace — one that they might not like, and one that Trump doesn’t acknowledge,” Johnson added.
