Is that really what you want?
OUCH! Jeddbird, your logic is so twisted up that it must be painful for you. Let's take it step by step:

To my knowledge, the US Government doesn't provide subsidies (in the form of tax breaks, or otherwise) encouraging businesses to move more of their business offshore. The point is that US taxes are so onerous, that this gives them a way to minimize taxes. You blame the business for acting in its own self interest (as you would), rather than blame the government who sets the tax rates and who is therefore the cause of the business moving offshore.

You don't own the job--it's not an entitlement or a possession. If you are willing and able to do a job, and if there is an employer
looking to have a job done that you can fill, then you have a job. But it's really not YOURS, because it depends equally on their being a viable employer.

I hope you're not admitting to any prejudice against people of different color, religion, culture. Are you?

Not against it at all. In fact reducing tax and regulatory burdens on US businesses will help keep them here. You are blaming the businesses themselves, rather than seeing that Government policy is the true villain. Government is the proper target of yor anger--not for giving subsidies to offshore business, but maintaining burdensome taxes and regulations that discourage businesses from remaining in the US.
