Produce and NAFTA


Produce and NAFTA
Laurence M. Vance
January 10, 2014

This month is the 20th anniversary of NAFTA. A story on NPR yesterday talks about how Americans have more produce because of NAFTA:

Walk through the produce section of your supermarket and you'll see things you'd never have seen years ago ­ like fresh raspberries or green beans in the dead of winter. Much of that produce comes from Mexico, and it's the result of the North American Free Trade Agreement ­ NAFTA ­ which took effect 20 years ago this month. In the years since, NAFTA radically changed the way we get our fruits and vegetables. For starters, the volume of produce from Mexico to the U.S. has tripled since 1994.

Could Americans have gotten more produce without NAFTA? Of course. It is called free trade, which NAFTA is not. A free trade agreement takes a paragraph, not hundreds of pages. For further reading, here is a great analysis of NAFTA by Murray Rothbard, here is my article "Managed Trade Is Not Free Trade," and here is my article "The Moral Case for Free Trade." The Mises Institute once put out The NAFTA Reader, but I am unable to locate it.

Re: [New post] TEXAS Landlord prefers to pay steep fine rather than rent to Muslims

I understand the purpose of these laws.....They have outlived their purpose(s). 
 
In Germany, a landlord has every right to discriminate against anyone who cooks foul smelling ethinc foods that contaminate an apartment building.  The same should be allowed to landlords here in the United States.

Justice Department Obtains $317,000 in Discrimination Settlement with Euless, Texas, Apartment Complex

The United States has settled a housing discrimination lawsuit in Euless, Texas, concerning discrimination against persons of Middle Eastern and South Asian descent, the Justice Department announced today.  Under the agreement, defendants in United States v. Stonebridge at Bear Creek LLP et al will pay a total of $107,000 in civil penalties and $210,000 in a damages fund to compensate victims of the defendants' discrimination identified during the term of the agreement.

 

The agreement was filed today in federal court in Dallas and takes the form of a joint proposed order whose terms may be enforced by the court.  The department's complaint alleged that, for several years, the owners, employees and management company of Stonebridge at Bear Creek Apartments violated the Fair Housing Act by denying housing opportunities to persons of Middle Eastern and South Asian descent.  Among other unlawful actions, Stonebridge's property manager ordered leasing agents to misrepresent apartment availability based on the accent and perceived race or national origin of potential tenants, and to segregate those approved tenants of Middle Eastern or South Asian descent into two buildings in order to isolate any smells allegedly associated with ethnic cuisine that the manager disliked.

 

"The Fair Housing Act ensures that people searching for a home are protected from discrimination, no matter what part of the world their family comes from" said Acting Assistant Attorney General Jocelyn Samuels for the Civil Rights Division.  "The Justice Department will continue to vigorously protect the rights of all individuals to obtain housing free from discrimination."

 

Under the agreement, which must be approved by the federal court in Texas, the defendants must adopt a nondiscrimination policy and enact or undertake numerous other corrective measures, including training, record keeping and monitoring.  In addition, the property manager who ordered the discrimination will no longer be employed by the owners of Stonebridge at Bear Creek Apartments or its management company.

 

Fighting illegal housing discrimination is a top priority of the department's Civil Rights Division.  The federal Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in housing on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin and disability.

 

More information about the Civil Rights Division and the laws it enforces is available at www.justice.gov/crt/ .  Persons who believe they have experienced or witnessed unlawful housing discrimination may call the Housing Discrimination Tip Line at 1-800-896-7743, e-mail the department at fairhousing@usdoj.gov , or contact HUD at 1-800-669-9777.  More information about the Fair Housing Act can also be found at www.justice.gov/crt/housing/ or www.hud.gov/fairhousing .

Re: [New post] WARNING: Never allow Muslim groups like CAIR into your children’s schools

Why would CAIR,  the JDL,  or the ACLU be in a public school? What possible purpose could any of these groups have in our public school system?

  • ACLU
    Founded and managed mostly by Jews of the atheistic branches which represent two-thirds of Jewry, the ACLU concentrates on defying Christian values in court, promoting atheistic value in schools, denial of school prayer, opposition to public aid for children in religious schools, and church-state matters. In addition, it supports social disintegration legislation and court rulings, especially those which allow criminals to go free and return to prey on the public in the name of "private rights" of various sorts. Although the ACLU does some good, mostly it's lawsuits are intrusions into Christian values in a nation that is only 2% Jewish, and its lawsuits are the tiny flea wagging the tail of the giant dog, denying the majority their right to rule in their own nation. The ACLU has never, as far as Jew Watch can confiirm, entered a lawsuit to deny the religious State of Israel the $3-$10 billion per year it receives from the US Government on the same basis of "separation of church and state" that it uses against those whose instituions are Christian.

Fwd: Low IQ House Democrats claim global warming will drive women to prostitution







 

 

This article clearly shows the "intelligence" (?) level of Democrats. 

 

If you don't think you need to know who's on the ballot and be an informed voter, surely this kind of government "leadership" will jolt you into changing your mind!

 

Remember:  VOTERS put this Democrat into office..............uninformed, clueless.......the people Democrats rely on and pander to and they flood to the voting booths.

 

C

 

 

 

 

Honestly folks, I am NOT making this stuff up. Even a "reality TV" script writer could not come up with such lunacy....



House Democrats claim global warming will drive women to prostitution

 

Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif.Brendan Smialowski/Getty Images

 

April 30, 2013

A resolution put forward by Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., and a dozen other House Democrats claims that global warming could drive women to prostitution, The Hill reported Monday.

According to Democrats, climate change will affect women worse than men and could force poor women into the sex trade.

"[F]ood insecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work, transactional sex, and early marriage that put them at risk for HIV, STIs, unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health," the resolution says.

Democrats also claim that changes in the climate will put added stress on female farmers and will hurt "marginalized" women like refugees, sexual minorities, adolescent girls, and women and girls with HIV.

"My resolution will affirm the commitment to include and empower women in economic development planning and international climate change policies and practices," Lee told The Hill. "This will help communities adapt to climate impacts, and embark on a path towards clean and sustainable development."

The resolution says the ability of women to adapt to climate change is "constrained by a lack of economic freedoms, property and inheritance rights, as well as access to financial resources, education, family planning and reproductive health, and new tools, equipment, and technology."

It calls on Congress to use "gender-specific frameworks in developing policies to address climate change" and encourages President Obama to "integrate a gender approach in all policies and programs" related to climate change.

A post at BizPacReview says the resolution "comes at a time when climatologists are beginning to come to grips with the fact that the planet is not warming — global temperatures have remained essentially steady for well over a decade."

"While some climate scientists continue to resist the obvious that the climate system is more complex than they assumed, others are starting to accept that the multi-decadal climate projections provide very incomplete simulations has to how the real climate system works," Roger Pielke, Jr., environmental studies professor at the Center for Science and Technology Policy Research at the University of Colorado at Boulder, told the Daily Caller.

BizPacReview said that just as scientists have not been able to provide a direct link between human activity and global warming, Rep. Lee has not been able to prove that climate change will lead to prostitution.
