    @Donsfirstwife: You are in error.
    “Jesus” (gee-zus) is the English pronunciation of the German transliteration Jesus (Yay-sus) of the Greek name Iesous (hyay-sus) that is the transliteration of the Hebrew name Yeshua (Yah-Shew-ah) that is transliterated in the English Old Testament as Joshua.

    The Greek pronunciation and the modern Spanish pronunciation are virtually indistinguishable. It is the same name.

    “Jesus” is a transliteration, occurring in a number of languages and based on the Latin Iesus, of the Greek Ἰησοῦς (Iēsoûs), itself a hellenization of the Aramaic/Hebrew ישוע‎ (Yēšûă‘) which is a post-Exilic modification of the Hebrew יְהוֹשֻׁעַ‎ (Yĕhōšuă‘, Joshua) under influence from Aramaic.”

    TheMajority – What you fail to acknowledge is the reason the Auto Industry was the bell cow of outsourcing to begin with: The artificially high cost of their products due to union practices. Force the company to accept low productivity so twice as many dues paying members are hired. Force them to retain employees sleeping, using drugs, stealing, etc. while on the clock. I used to haul parts from suppliers to the plants around Detroit. I never could understand why it took having 7-8 guys in a receiving department sitting in the office reading the newspaper and drinking coffee in order to operate two forklifts for about 20 minutes out of every hour. Once the auto industry went, the rest of the country saw that GM, Ford, etc. survived and followed suit. The unions in the auto industry not only forced their own workers’ jobs overseas, but they made it acceptable for many other American workers’ jobs to disappear as well.
