We used to have jobs making everything we needed, right here in the USA. Where did all those jobs go?Many went to Communist China! Just go to your local Wal-Mart and see where 99% of the products are made.
My wife and I recently visited a major department store and a manager who had been employed at the store for more than 25 years, quietly said; "Everything in the store is made in China."
Obama should order American manufactures to return their plants to the USA. I am no economist but I think it would be cheaper to employ Americans than to declare bankruptcy. Not one person in the news media OR our government will take this on. No one will even mention it.
Our Presidents idea of creating jobs is to borrow/print up money and start some new projects and repair roads and bridges. No one can say that is not necessary, but it doesn't sound like it is a long term solution.
Just think of how proud a resident of China is when they go into their local Wal-Mart (there are almost 200 in China) and see all the products they will purchase are made in THEIR country.
I gotta say I am not proud of my country when I see everything I wear, all my electronics, light bulbs, appliances, telephones, cameras, linens and on and on is "Made in China." All your children’s toys are made in China. Even my Christmas ornaments are made in China.
This is about a race to the bottom. Soon Communist China will not have to depend on the US for its survival. They have the factories and the consumers to make their nation work. They no longer need the US for technology. A Chinese automaker is looking to the future to be number one in the car production market.We have to face the facts that all of us are not IT techs. Tell Obama we want our jobs back! I have a CNN Ireport at this location if anyone is interested. I faxed President Obama and his Chair of Economics’, Christiana Romer, but never got a response. http://www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-206427
