Starting with that S.O.B. at Yarrabee Farms that employed the murderer of Mollie Tibbetts. Although he claims to have vetted the guy thoroughly through E-Verify. Right. Yeah. Sure thing.

It's your so-called "fellow Americans" who are screwing over their neighbors. The employer should be arrested as an accomplice in the murder of Tibbetts. And how many people knew he was doing this and chose to turn a blind eye?

Not sure who is lower, the Yarrabee Farms guy or the Navy Seal who just got busted for trying to smuggle a load of cocaine in from Colombia.

Babbling nonsense. You don't need a 400 level course to understand trade. Its as simple as driving home. You could drive home yourself. You could drive home with a friend. You could drive home with a stranger. You could drive home with an enemy. Driving home with an enemy should be done with a risk adjusted basis. Driving home with a friend is an efficiency adjusted basis. Most people can understand this over a beer. The only sophistication to it is if you could come up with a good data profile as to the risk reward ratios. In any case the rewards of specialization come at the cost of the rising risks in a lack of redundancy. If you are highly specialized you can makes lots of money until it possibly becomes obsolete. Thus the trade proposition is away a compromise.



I also am not amused when socialized costs are left out of the equation. The military is an expense. So is welfare and social problems that are often externalized by employers.
