'Insourcing' Jobs back to America "Insourcing" may be an unfamiliar term, but it's the opposite of outsourcing, which means American companies moving jobs overseas. At the White House today, the President hosted a forum on how to keep them at home.

One of those companies is Master Lock , headquartered in Wisconsin. John Schmid is economics writer for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel .

One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
