Yes and no. The so called "third World"
is not quite so simple. Many suppliers in Hong Kong,
Korea, Singapore, and even India develop line and styles
for JCP which are out souced to Centeral America, the
Caribean Basin, Mauritius, the Maldives, Fuji, etc. These
companies develop lines just like their US conterparts. And
no, it is just not JCP private brands. Direct source
imports have risen at JCP from under 20% to 40-50%

My anger is deep at the
management of JCP for forcing me at 61 years of age to pull
up statkes and move, just to survive. Sure, I

I would not argue as to Clinton
being the best politician in his DECEPTION, and
therefore support having the ability to garner the support
of the American People. But, by the ability to have
GOVERNED over his term, which is another measure of a
politicians abilities, he has proven to be woefully lacking.
Even with a House AND a Senate of the same stripe, he
was dismally a failure of inacting any meaningful
legislation in the first years of his term. Then, as he was
so woefully inept in this catagory, coupled with his
true "attitude", which started to be shown, he single
handedly handed the House, and the Senate to the
Republicans. This is not the mark of a "good", much less,
GREAT" politician. Although, I complain not about this

A "Great Politician" is one that "leads", not one
that just "benefits" from the doings of others. This
is Franklin Roosevelt(even though I disagree with

hostile congress. THAT is a "Great Politician".
