So who got outFoxed on this story?

So you're saying there's a chance? Hope and change!

I don't know why everyone wants Foxconn to build iphones in the United States. It's a minimum wage job in China, if you want that then go work for CVS.

The entire article is amusing - considering that FoxConn already has Operations located in the U.S. including Houston Texas, Harrisburg Pennsylvania, Plainfield IN and Cypress, Fullerton, and Santa Clara in California. Most of these are facilities for small number, quick turn-around manufacturing runs.

So iPhones are going to kill the Mayans?

Forbes sucks. They can't STAND the fact that the economy is improving.

So these "job creators" Rmoney and friends have been talking about... they're Chinese?

But the Mayans did have an apocalypse and all but died out as a result, Subby. They just did it ahead of the schedules that we found.

So your headline means that those jobs will be here before ... when? December 20th?

Maybe you meant some other disaster which you don't quite understand? The Black Plague? Mao's Famine? The 1978 Red Sox collapse?
