GREATER KC AFL-CIO RAGE AGAINST WATER DEPT. INDIA OUTSOURCING!!!



Here's a bit of Kansas City social media rhetoric earning a great deal of support amid the online echo chamber.

Checkit;

Greater KC AFL-CIO recently posted: "Here is an example of what is wrong in America and moreover right here in our own back yard. The Kansas City Water Department put these out to bid and as usual the lowest bid was accepted and these outsourced cast iron covers are on our streets in KCMO. How do you feel about this?"

As always, our blog community examined this issue A FULL THREE YEARS AGO and the discussion was a bit more nuanced than just emoji support, likes and other union cheerleader hype.

While easy to agree with, the local union chest-pounding sentiment doesn't offer any insight into how these local bits of infrastructure are manufactured.

Here's a bit more insight on that front which kinda reveals that nobody's getting rich on this low end product put together in dangerous working conditions . . .

New York Times: From The Ladles Of Molten Metal

Meanwhile, U.S. industry has yet to offer a cheaper or less cruel alternative than relying on the global economy and a great deal of child and slave labor.

So, as usual, a local special interest provides some impressive rhetoric that's mostly just venting and rage with very little solutions or insight beyond raising prices or building consensus for the the rest of their agenda in the very same way that most politicos prove their point by offering the bloodthirsty mob a scapegoat.

You decide . . .

The Indians own this country. They were here first.

And the Indians chose to live like animals instead of moving ahead in life like the white man did who came along later. The Indians like the blacks just want to sit around get high and do nothing while someone else does all the work.

The Britons own England because they were there first. All descendants of Angles, Saxons and Normans have to leave.

All American Indians whose ancestors did not arrive with the first group across the Bering grasslands must vacate immediately.

All of the Mexicans, not of Mayan descent must NOW LEAVE!

Oh, that's right, they are heading North.

Which Indians, though? To generalize thousands of tribes and milennia of tribal conflict and bloodshed is to trivialize native american diversity.

It's disgusting how you racists rationalize, & minimize, your race's crimes against humanity, especially against the Native Americans, & the descendants of the African Diaspora.

Well again, your own racist assumption is that the 'victims' of broad historical processes are 'noble savages' without flaw. You are ignorant both of the bloodbath of the Americas well before Columbus and the horror of Africa before colonization.

white people are okay. The women smell like sunshine and fresh laundry. I highly recommend trying one one. They're a little snug to start but very flexible and fun!

If you really want to solve this racist bullshit lets go to Africa and get reparations from those Black Watusi fucks that conned us into buying those fucking worthless slaves in the first place. Man was that a fucking mistake.

If you hire 100 India'ns or 90 Chinese. They alone could run the entire h2o dept.. They would fix and improve each and every pump station in 5 years. They would also be able to stay in budget.. There is no place for the waste of taxpayer/customer's money. The place is such a fucking joke. Poor to non existent management.

7:45 You obviously missed something in your education dipshit. The only things American Indians missed was terminating your fucking gene pool a few generations back.
