Protectionism on the raise

We already know Obama is doing his best to increase protectionism despite his reassurance – as always he is lying. But in Florida they are taking this even further. Politicians and business leaders are urging people in Florida to spend their money on companies and products in and made in, that’s right, Florida.

From the Miami Herald
The retail federation's president, Rick McCallister, points out that 75 percent of Florida's gross domestic product is driven by consumer spending. He says the state can recover faster if Floridians spend closer to come.

Just a little bit more of this crap and there is hardly anything separating this recession from the one back in the 20’s. Well we are basically more screwed today, but that’s just semantics.
