  1. Oh no, he invests in China, how dare a mutualfund company do such a thing!

    Can Bill Foster do a network TV ad that doesn’t mention Jim?

    Also who employs more folks in the 14th?

  2. 1,

    Perhaps you missed it 😉 but Foster and Oberweis are running against each other.

    Obie’s ad also depicts Foster in it… why don’t you mention that you take issue there also?

    For that matter, it’s funny how conservatives are against illegal immigrants coming to the US “to take our jobs” but here is One coming in to rationalize and say it’s ok to ship those jobs off to foreign countries.

    Maybe that’s the cons’ way of eliminating the problem of “illegal” immigration (export the jobs so the immigrants don’t import themselves)?

  3. Mentioning a guy in a response ad is a bit different.

    Anyway using Fosters logic in this ad any investment in a non-US company is bad because they are taking away American jobs.

    So if the fund was an India fund that would also be ‘bad’ or a ‘Central America’ fund or even a ‘Canada Energy Fund’ those would all be bad because we all know companies outside the US only exist to take US jobs! Is the issue however that it is China if so, that’s an interesting distinction.

    If you read this Daily Koz item
    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/2/4/204655/7420/644/449889
    it appears that at least some of those jobs Foster mentions with ETC may be in Hong Kong (isn’t that part of China)?

    Also are all of Fosters current investments only in US companies that have no significant overseas investments (again don’t want to have any financial interest in anyone who might be taking away US jobs)

    So my question is, Is the issue the fund is a China fund or is the issue that is a overseas fund?

    Just trying to understand where the problem is.

  4. If I expect you to answer my questions, I should answer yours.

    … it’s funny how conservatives are against illegal immigrants coming to the US “to take our jobs” but here is One coming in to rationalize and say it’s ok to ship those jobs off to foreign countries.

    Umm, no. At the end of the day as much as anyone would like to regulate, legislate or tax folks, jobs and tasks are going to move to where the best results occur for investors, thats how capitalism works.

    As for the ‘illegal’ immigration thing, the issue isn’t necessarily immigration but the fact that it is done against US law and policy. We have policies and laws on immigration to manage the process, without it you would have chaos. The issue this conservative has with it is that it is against the law. That’s the issue.
