Need A Job? Too Bad! The Good Jobs Are Being Shipped Out Of America As Part Of The New One World Economy

I hope that you enjoy the cheap foreign-made plastic trinkets that you will be exchanging with your family and friends this holiday season, because they are literally destroying the U.S. economy.  As part of the new “one world economy” that both Democrats and Republicans insist is so good for us, millions of good paying middle class jobs have been shipped out of America.  Do you need a job?  Are you wondering where all the good jobs went?  Well, the next time you are out just walk into a store and start looking at the product labels.  Most of the things that are sold in our stores are now made out of the country.  So if you need a good paying job to support your family that is just too bad – you have been merged into a global labor pool where you must compete for jobs with people on the other side of the globe willing to work for less than a tenth of what you usually make.  Welcome to the “one world economy” where big global corporations make a fortune exploiting slave labor on the other side of the world while “overly expensive American workers” get dumped out on the street.

Are you in favor of a redistribution of wealth?  Most of the time when the phrase “redistribution of wealth” is brought up, conservatives and libertarians visibly cringe – as they should.  But did you know that right now the greatest redistribution of wealth in the history of the world is taking place and our politicians are doing nothing about it?

For a moment, imagine a giant map of the world.  On that giant map, put a huge pile of money on the United States, and also put a huge pile of money on China and on the OPEC nations.  Now imagine a big hand coming along once a month that takes tens of billions of dollars out of the U.S. pile and puts it into the piles of China and the OPEC nations.

As this continues month after month after month, what is eventually going to happen?

The U.S. pile of money is going to get far smaller and the other piles of money are going to get much, much larger.

And that is exactly what is happening in our world today.

Back in 1985, the U.S. trade deficit with China was 6 million dollars for the entire year – not really anything to worry about  it.

Well, let’s fast forward to 2010.  For the month of August alone, the trade deficit with China was more than 28 billion (that’s billion with a “b”) dollars.

In other words, the U.S. trade deficit with China in August was more than 4,600 times larger than the U.S. trade deficit with China was for the entire year of 1985.

My, how the world has changed in 25 years.

Oh, but doesn’t China “invest” some of that money they are getting from us back into our country?

Well yeah, our top officials regularly go over there to beg them to lend us more money.  Now we owe China close to a trillion dollars.  We also owe the major oil exporting nations of the Middle East massive amounts of money.

Is this a good idea?  Let us keep in mind the ancient principle that the borrower always ends up the servant of the lender.

Is it wise for the United States to become enslaved to China and to the oil exporters of the Middle East?

Is that any way to run an economy?  Is that any way to run a country?

All over the United States factories are closing down.  If you go to shopping centers in many areas of America you would think that the hottest new store was called “Space Available”.

Since the year 2000, we have lost 10% of our middle class jobs.  In the year 2000 there were about 72 million middle class jobs in the United States but today there are only about 65 million middle class jobs.

What kind of progress is that?

“But oh”, the supporters of the one world economy will declare, “the cheap goods, the cheap goods!”

Yes, I hope you enjoy paying ten percent less for your plastic trinkets.  But you will also support American workers one way or another.  Either you will provide them with good paying jobs, or you will pay for their food stamps and their unemployment checks.

One out of every six Americans is now enrolled in a federal anti-poverty program.  As 2007 began, 26 million Americans were on food stamps, but now 42 million Americans are on food stamps and that number keeps rising every single month.

Can anyone out there please explain how the “one world economy” is supposed to be good for us when 42 million Americans cannot even feed themselves?

Allowing our country to be deindustrialized just so that we can consume more cheap goods from China is like tearing down pieces of your house to keep your fire going.  In the end, you won’t have much of a house left.

Whatever your opinion of Donald Trump is, this next video is worth watching.  Trump certainly should not run for president, but as a savvy businessman he definitely understands what China is doing to us….

It is time for the American people to wake up.

We are being taken advantage of.

The one world economy is going to keep destroying the U.S. middle class.  There is no way that American workers can compete with slave labor on the other side of the globe.  It is impossible.

In fact, just about every kind of job imaginable is being shipped to places where labor is cheaper.  Even engineering and computer programming jobs are being offshored and outsourced.

The United States is even being slaughtered in high-tech industries.  Back in 1998, the United States had 25 percent of the world’s high-tech export market and China had just 10 percent. Ten years later, the United States had less than 15 percent and China’s share had soared to 20 percent.

According to one recent study, China could become the global leader in patent filings by next year.

The United States has become a bloated, slovenly nation that consumes massive amounts of wealth but that produces relatively little.

With each passing year, we make fewer things inside the United States….

*The United States has lost a staggering 32 percent of its manufacturing jobs since the year 2000.

*Since 2001, over 42,000 U.S. factories have closed down for good.

*As of the end of 2009, less than 12 million Americans worked in manufacturing.  The last time that less than 12 million Americans were employed in manufacturing was in 1941.

*Manufacturing employment in the U.S. computer industry is actually lower in 2010 than it was in 1975.

*In 2010, the number one U.S. export to China is “scrap and trash”.

Oh, but won’t “getting more education” solve all of our problems and get the American people back to work?

No.

The truth is that tens of millions of Americans have a “higher education” that is not doing them any good today.

In his article entitled “The Great College-Degree Scam“, Richard Vedder explains that a large percentage of U.S. college graduates are working in jobs that have not historically required college degrees….

Here it is:  approximately 60 percent of the increase in the number of college graduates from 1992 to 2008 worked in jobs that the BLS considers relatively low skilled—occupations where many participants have only high school diplomas and often even less.

Ouch.

Later on in his article, Vedder notes that the number of college graduates that are waiting tables or that are working as cashiers is absolutely exploding….

In 1992 119,000 waiters and waitresses were college degree holders. By 2008, this number had more than doubled to 318,000. While the total number of waiters and waitresses grew by about 1 million during this period, 20% of all new jobs in this occupation were filled by college graduates. Take cashiers as well. While 132,000 cashiers possessed college degrees in 1992, by 2008, 365,000 cashiers were college graduates. As with waiters and waitresses, 20% of new cashiers since 1992 are college graduates.

So do you still think that the “one world economy” is a great idea?

Well, you might want to practice the following two phrases….

#1 “Would you like fries with that?”

#2 “Welcome to Wal-Mart!”

Our economy is turning into a low-wage service economy because we don’t make much of anything in the United States anymore.

So if you need a good job, I am afraid that the joke is on you.

The good jobs are being shipped out of the United States as part of the new one world economy, and millions of unemployed Americans have been left to fight over the low paying service jobs that remain.

So if you are flipping burgers or stocking shelves for a big multinational retail chain, perhaps you should consider yourself to be fortunate.  At least you still have a job.  There are millions of desperate, hungry-eyed Americans that would take your job in a second.

And you know what?  Things are only going to get worse.

    Definition of Globalization: to mix up one bottle of good red wine with ten bottles of tap water!

    The result: lightly pink colored water (= global mediocrity)

    Now, don’t shoot at the wrong targets!

    The Chinese, or the Emirs, didn’t force anyone to buy their products; they didn’t plan to come to the actual situation.

    China is a tumor, grown from our brain cancer, a.k.a. greed, a sickness affecting, for the most part, Western CEOs.

    If Steve Jobs is your idol, well, think again, because he is part of the problem.

    The Gulf is our drug dealer and we are deeply addicted, even though our dealer never encouraged our vice.

    Once again, it is our brain cancer (greed), which is responsible for our addiction.

    Hey, I think I’d vote for him!

    I’ve just closed a small retail business, and am looking for a job, and I’m actually NOT feeling too optimistic. Don’t forget, there’s not a safety net for the self employed; we don’t get those unemployment checks. A lot of former business owners are in my position. Its truly frightening, on the personal level as well as the national.

    I don’t understand why the Walmart crowd can’t put it together, that if they buy all this STUFF, they put us out of business, more unemployed are on the streets, more people on food stamps, more homeless. For WHAT!!!! Is saving a buck or two on stuff that’s just unnecessary junk worth this toll on the US economy? I’m not saying I’m blameless in this, but I TRY to think about where every cent is ultimately going.

    WE as individuals are all a part of the problem and a part of the potential solution.

    When you say “plastic trinkets”, hopefully you realize that the entire production of desktop and laptop computers goes through countries like Taiwan where the minimum wage is less than $1 per hour. Are you suggesting that we don’t buy those “plastic trinket” computers that represent the tools for the only remaining growth area in Western economies (i.e. software)?

    Admittedly, I’d like to see more production of these devices in Western nations, but that means the average $1000 laptop would be at least $5000 once you pay Western wages.

    Here are a few more phrases that Americans will be practicing in the future when the desperation goes from bad to much, much worse:

    1. You can have my wallet, but please don’t shoot me.
    2. It’s time to put some bars on the windows.
    3. I never leave home anymore without my gun.
    4. I can’t believe I got mugged in broad daylight. I never go out at night anymore, but even in the daytime, it isn’t safe.
    5. Why did those kidnappers have to shoot my wife? I gave them the ransom, but they shot her anyway.

    Third World hellholes can be very nasty, dangerous places, and if you think the crime problem is bad in American cities now, just wait. It’s going to get much worse. We’re talking Johannesburg bad, Port Moresby bad, Caracas bad, Guatemala City bad, slums of Trenchtown bad (sing along with me: I remember when we used to sit….in the government yard in Trenchtown). This is a race to the bottom for The Banana Republic of America (previously known as the USA), and we haven’t hit rock bottom yet……but we’re getting there slowly but surely thanks to the globalist beast.

    Ross Perot was absolutely right about that “giant sucking sound.” Maybe globalism wasn’t such a good idea after all, was it?

    The Mrs. recently completed her degree. She has an idea for a business, did the business plan thing, etc., and applied for a start-up LOAN with the Small Business Admin. She was denied because she did not have X dollars in a savings account.

    OK; that’s the rules, fair enough. A LOAN is using someone else’s money and they indisputably have the right to set the parameters.

    However, wihin days of her being denied the paper ran a big story about a local millionare receiving a GRANT from the state to refurbish a privately owned hotel.

    We CAN compete with the rest of the world. That’s not a problem at all. We’ve been doing it for about 100 years now. We are great at innovation. Hell, we practically invented innovation!

    The game is the same, but the difference between 40 years ago and today, is that global competition has changed the rules. In other words, sorry Michael Jordan, but slam dunks and three point shots no longer count under the new, improved global basketball league. Mr. Jordan would say, “What the hell…?”

    Just like many Americans are saying, relevant to the economy. Precisely!

    Our QUALITY OF LIFE is about to take a massive blow. The life we knew is about to suffer a major hit, and our country’s economy will be lying flat on a mat. Just like one of those punches Muhammad Ali threw back in his heyday.

    At the moment, the U.S. still has a rather high standard of living. Your family can watch 268 cable TV channels (the Weather Channel is thrown in for free, ha!) And you can decorate your house with those $5.00 LED candles from Wal-Mart (Oh, they look sooo cool!)

    And, because a global economy is oh sooo cool to our politicians, our standard of living is going to suffer as a consequence. It all balances out, like a see-saw. We used to be on top of the see-saw, and the rest of the world at the other end, was touching the sand. Now it’s tipping slowly downwards, towards more of a balance.

    Ever wonder how people in Brazil, Romania, China, South Africa, etc. live? We’re about to find out, big time.

    Bye, bye, Miss American Pie.

    Happy Meal? You’re kidding, right?

    The only meal at Mickey D’s I can afford is the Depression Meal.

    That’s a 1/4 size beef patty, three tomato seeds, a splash of Velvetta cheese, and half a lettuce leaf.

    And one french fry. (I’ll use the plastic knife to split it into half, so both kids get their fair share).

    They may even throw in a plastic Justin Bieber doll, to keep your pre-teen daughter occupied.

    Making a computer in China, instead of the US, doesn’t translate into a significant retail price difference.
    Partly because the most expensive parts have to be purchased (Intel…), aprtly because there is a lot of automated work and partly because of how the system works.

    A foreign company has a factory in China.
    It creates a company in Hong Kong, with a subsidiary company in a tax heaven (some Carribean Island).

    The “made in China” production is shipped to the US, or Europe, but invoiced to Hong Kong at cost price.

    Hong Kong then sends a revised invoice, at cost +++ (from 1 dollar a unit to 5, or more).

    Meanwhile, the company in the tax heaven invoices Hong Kong for some “services”, for an amount approximately equal to that of the shipment.

    In the end, the (huge) profit is made in the tax heaven, not in China, not in the US.

    And when the “made in China” computer arrives on the US retailers shelves, it is not, or not much, cheaper than if it had been made in the US.

    Think about Nike shoes. I don’t think that they are cheaper now than they were when manufactured in the US. But the (hidden) profit for Nike is certainly much higher.

    Many jobs today that never used to require college degrees now do but not because the work demands it. Employers list college degrees as a requirement simply because they find that most of the applicants already have them anyway.

    Wouldn’t it be funny if Americans can be found standing around the Chinese equivalent of Home Depot? Or to see in Chinese news that a bunch of Americans have been caught trying to enter China illegally?

    Imagine Americans forming “Little America” or “USA-town” in major Chinese cities and Chinese people complaining of the “mei guo ren” or “gwai lo” taking away their jobs.

    Scary to think it could happen isn’t it?

    BTW We better start learning how to say those phrases in Mandarin if the economy doesn’t improve.

    The population in the developed world are suffering due to the hangover from excessive borrowings from lenders who lent to anyone on the street to maximise their own bonuses.

    http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article24581.html

    The problems have been compounded by Outsourcin­g

    and Rampant Speculatio­n allowed in all the exchanges.

    http://www­.marketora­cle.co.uk/­Article236­62.html

    The problems are hereto stay as till date no one in the political arena has even acknowledg­ed the problems let alone find solution to them.

    The too big to fail bunch of banksters have a lot of influence on the political class, the rule makers and the rule enforcers due to their enormous purchasing power. So irrespecti­­ve of the position in the government­­, everyone works for the benefit of the banksters.

    The rest of the population have to be dumped with lots of problems like unemployme­­nt, high cost of living (thanks to speculatio­­n in commodity exchanges)­­, foreclosur­­es, etc. so that they don’t devote their thoughts to the root of all problems and revolt against the comfortabl­­e arrangemen­­t between the banksters, central bankers and the government­­s.

    This too big to fail group has grown more powerful in size and influence in the last two years and is likely to end up being too big to bail bringing down complete economies of countries with them.

    First, nothing will change until we get the politicians off the payroll of corporations, and that will only happen with public funding of campaigns (and at $5 per taxpayer per year it’d be one helluva bargain).

    2nd, a 100% turnover in congress must occur every two years until that happens. THIS is the most critical!!!

    3rd, the grunt-jobs are gone forever. Retrain in health care or plumbing or whatever. Or start your own business (mowing lawns if you have to).

    Our commerce secretary, Gary Locke, appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box this morning. He was actually defending the Chinese for doing a good job of ending the pirating of American software because . . . ready for this? . . . the talks in Washington led to the Chinese agreeing to end the use of pirated software in their GOVERNMENT OFFICES. He was also excusing them for using stolen software in the first place saying that they had a hard time telling the difference between real and counterfeit. This is just one example of how the treasonous clowns in DC continually insult our intelligence.

    Those so-called “plastic trinkets?” Oh, you mean like clothes or groceries?

    People shop at Wal-Mart because, for most items, their prices are the lowest. For those of us who have bought the lie of improved standards of living, who saw a commercial for luxury products or high-end electronics and thought “OMG – must have NAO! LOL!” and who think that we can live like the Kardashians if we only shopped and spent like they do, the next few years are going to hurt like hell.

    I have some suggestions. Turn off your TV. Unplug it, put it in a closet somewhere. Cancel your cable subscriptions. Stop buying magazines – don’t even read them in the library. Shred your junk mail. See how your spending habits change when you’re not constantly comparing your circumstances to some ideal that has not existed since the 1960s and like never will again. Start seeking out and buying home-manufactured goods, and stop buying the latest gadgets and trinkets if you can make do with what you’ve got right now. We are living in the world of _1984_ right now; our enemies are us, and the ones who are now profiting unabashedly from our slow demise.

    It’s interesting that people like to believe and make excuses when the problem does not immedietely effect them.

    When NAFTA came in an engineer friend with a BSME was touting it’s benefits. A decade later he was moping reading an engineering journal complaining about all the engineering employment now outsourced to India. When it effected blue collar people it was a great idea. Once it effected him his tune changed. I told him, “Told you so”. A Physician once complained that union people made too much money. Well that can be corrected and you can make what a Medical Doctor makes in Mexico.

    NAFTA was in with significant Democrat support and they were rewarded with re-election and then felt secure enough for 80% of US Senate Democrats to vote for China Free Trade. OBTW a Democrat President signed it into law only because a Republican President was not in office at the time.

    Europe faired no better when their respective Labor Parties supported Free Trade with slave labor nations. Did “The People” in Europe really want “Free Trade” with slave labor nations that would ultimately eviscerate much of their manufacturing capacity; highly doubtfull.

    One has to ask the question, “Is Democracy an illusion worldwide”?

    There is no doubt we Americans are probably in the most important fight of our lives. It seems our Government does not have our back, the international money changers and merchants, i.e. IMF, World Bank, The Federal Reserve, rogue corporate entities, etc. are eating us alive, sucking the life out of us and seem to want us our knees. What is worse we seem to have turned on one another as well. There is no shortage of terrifying incidents in which we are committing brutal acts of violence against one another. We seem to have largely turned our backs on our neighbors, friends and in some cases family members who are struggling with poverty. And to further kick Americans who are down, the corporations and in some cases the Governement have found it all too easy recruit Americans who will do anything to other Americans for the power and the money. It seems the Laws of the Jungle ‘Dog eat Dog’, ‘Greed is God’ and much worse reigns supreme.

    I remain optimistic though, despite the rather grim outlook and forecast of things to potentially come. The fabric of America is woven with one of the greatest documents ever revealed to humanity in my humble opinion, the Constitution. And as far as I am concerned the spirit of the Constitution is in the most indestructible places on earth, the hearts, souls and minds of average Americans. In the end we will find our way back to the guiding principles that are the true foundations of this Country. Our culture has taught me an enduring lesson, when you go down in the fights of life, you get back up, suck it up and swing! No matter who has says things like “stay down Americans, your going to get hurt” or “your opponent is too much for you, give up Americans” the fighting spirit in this culture will in the end always inspire us to get back up. True American philosophy is it’s not how or why you go down in life, it’s how and if you get back up. . .

    A Dem senator keeps trying to get a bill passed that stops giving tax breaks to companies that outsource. The Repubs keep blocking it. Funny how the media never mentions this. All we get is 24-hour conservative radio and lamestream TV news that isn’t. No wonder the average American is a moron.

    I love mondobeyondo’s comment on McDonalds. Seriously, McD’s is a little expensive for what you’re paying. I’m amazed at the prices whenever I go. Something else: Here in downtown Portland Oregon, McD’s used to be filled with working people who had jobs, homes, cars. I now notice mostly homeless and very low income people. The same for Carl’s Jr. The client base has definitely shifted. And the teeny tiny McD’s that was located in downtown Pioneer Mall closed. Whoever heard of McD’s closing up, and in a mall at that.

    I hate to break it to you but we have no choice. We have to compete in the global marketplace whether we like it or not. We do not have the privilege of isolationism due to the shrinking world in transportation and internet technology. We have made the mistake of thinking in the old ways and fighting the globalization of the 20th. and 21st. centuries. We are about to pay an horrible price for these tardinesses. There will be blood, and lots of it. We have sown the wind and are about to reap the whirlwind. Remember, the future belongs to the prepared.

    Good job America!
    The only thing you have exported with any success in the past 40 or so years is your Hollywood / Entertainment garbage! It seems that all your youth want to do is these days is mimick the immoral and banal characters that they spend 6+ hours a day watching on Mom and Dad’s Flat screen TV (which has been bought on credit).

    How many of you who are at or near retirement age can honestly say that the youth of today will be able to keep America the way it was handed to you?

    This lazy and self serving generation of youth are not capable of manging a lemonade stand, let alone a country.

    The damage in America is so far gone now it will never be recovered. With no jobs or industry, how do you expect to recover your econmomy? Most of you sold your souls into debt by living a life that you can’t afford. You are now enslaved by your debt and are so addicted to this posh lifestyle that it will hurt even the more when it is taken from you.

    The up and coming generation of useless and moraless slaves-to-be are the very generation that will hand the keys of your once great nation into the hands of the global elite and the New World Order.

    Lord have mercy.

    Donald Trump is a dumb ass. He says the majority of US companies complain about Chinese protectionism, but can’t name a single one.

    America has stopped Chinese companies from entering the country for the past 10 years, but whines and whines that China is unfriendly to American business. I don’t hear the Koreans, Japanese, or Germans complaining. They are too busy making things to sell to the Chinese.

    I’m neither Chinese nor American, and while I disagree with how China is run, I respect the way they deal with the problems they face. America has been a huge disappointment of late. I can’t believe that in the face of irreversible decline, American’s response is to blame the world rather than look at internal problems. God bless this country, cos I think America needs the blessings more than China right now.

Thee most important thing that will cause destruction to you and me and to all societies is this simple biological fact. “Monsanto controls the seed market and terminator seed technology is the end game”. Because when all else fails, and money is worthless and you have no job, you (in the past) could always grow a garden of vegetables and survive. With Monsanto’s terminator seeds you can’t grow anything without their permission. And even if you get seeds from Monsanto it won’t grow unless you spray it with their Round-Up. Twenty nine bucks per half gallon.

    So some kid in Shanghai or Bangkok is slaving away for 50 cents an hour, making your precious Nike Air Jordans (sorry, that’s so old school. Let’s try… Air LeBrons? Air Kobes?) for your children to stroll down the street in style.

    You’ll pay maybe, hmm, $75 to $115 for them at Payless or Famous Footwear. You won’t find Nike’s at Wal-Mart (even Wally World has their limitations).

    Who’s Getting The Money?

    Certainly not the kid in the sweat shop. Poor fellow will probably get about $10 for a day’s work, if he’s lucky.

    So explain the approximate $65 ~ $105 price disparity. Is it being pocketed by the big rich Nike CEO guy? Wall Street perhaps? (is it called “NIKE” on the NYSE ticker?) Do they have a secret pact with Adidas and Converse to share the profits? Enquiring minds want to know!!

    p.s. long time since I used the tilde key! ~~
    Hee hee!

    I think American policies towards globalization should change. The people in America are the least benefited. What happened to the once the land of opportunities. Even my job was outsourced and couldn’t get job for couple of months. Who is responsible for this mess and strongly believe that top level Americans like CEOs are responsible. The Democrats and Republicans did their best for the recession, war, American soldier lives, trade deficits and what else…? The future of our kids life is in jeopardy…when I think this there will cold chill on my neck…

    This has been planned for many decades to take America down to the third world status by the Jesuit order from the Roman Catholic Church!!! Being privy to several classified documents in the past, I have read how they completely outlined their take over of our past Presidents , Vice Presidents, Senators, House of Representatives, and Supreme Court Justices to fill most positions of power and status by Roman Catholics to fulfill their evil agenda. The American people have not seen anything yet!! We have went past the point of no return and continue to watch in early 2011 just how things will really collapse rapidly!!! It seems that the American people do not wake up because they have become so passive in nature and dummied down they cannot fight anymore for what is right!!! Today, you can see that they are calling evil – good, and good – evil!!! Thanks again staff for such an informative article and bringing all of us the real TRUTH!

    Most Americans are too occupied, ignorant or just plain dumb to notice what’s really going on.

    Oh by the way, can I have onion rings instead of fries?

    Back in the mid to late 1980’s, a singer named Amy Grant had a hit song called “Baby, Baby”.

    Several months ago, Justin Bieber had a hit song called “Baby, Baby”.

    We haven’t advanced much, have we?

    Re; Robert Stout:

    As per your ill-conceived notions about the Catholic Church:
    – The Jesuit order and the Vatican are not involved in any world takeover conspiracy plots

    – If you traced back the roots of your Evangelical or other Protestant church which you are a part of, you will eventually come to realize that your church was formed as a result of some prideful disagreement. I bet the doctrines your church teaches have changed ump-teen times over the years as well.

    – There are over 30,000 sects of Christianity in the US today. They all disagree with each other in some way, or there wouldn’t be 30,000. The fact that there are so many churches that cannot totally agree with each other should raise a few flags, don’t you think?

    – The very fact that 30,000 denominations cannot agree on anything except that the Catholic church is ‘wrong’ says a lot. Think about that.

    – Where does the Bible say that a mere mortal man can start his own church?

    – The Catholic church has taught and protected the same doctirnes over its 2000 year history and is consistent throughout the entire world. God is perfect and does not change, so why would man need to change doctrine or rebuild God’s church?

    – While just about every protestant will mention to anyone who will listen that the Catholic Church is ‘evil’ or ‘wrong'(pride), the Catholic Church is praying that you will all come back and be one again (humility).

    – The Catholic Church has had its share of corruption and scandal lately,this is part of the purification. Don’t be so deceived: this stuff happens in the Protestant churches as well.

    – Jesus said that the gates of hell will not prevail against His church. There will only be one church left standing after all the chastisements are over and after the anti-christ is defeated. That one will be the Catholic church. It is the fullness of faith and founded by Christ, built on Peter, and all his successors. All other churches were founded by men and the lack the divine protection that will be required to survive the decisive battles and persecutions that are to come.

    – The world will be chastised and the anti-christ will be defeated, there is no doubt about that. It is after the anti-christ is defeated that the world will enter the era of peace, fortold in the book of Revelation Ch 19 and 20. During this period of peace for the world, all who remain on earth will know that there is one true religion, that is the Catholic Church that Christ founded Himself. This will be known as the Eucharistic reign of Christ.

    – Robert, Whether you come to realize these truths on this side of eternity or not, you should do all your homework about Christianity before you make such rash statements as you did. Search your heart and think about what you are doing. Why would you want to publically denounce the Church Jesus founded? God bless.

    For concerned 5:46pm: The Catholic church is corrupt to the core and the Protestants, other religions, have turned liberal (501c3 corp. gov takeover in l953). The only real churches are those that are not 501’s (non-partnership w/gov); and meet in homes and/or Ind. churches and worship like they did in early America (reformed, unregistered churches). Real churches today are few in number. The Elite takeover of the churches happened almost sixty years ago. This is main reason (besides gov. schools) people are ignorant morons soon to be slaves.

    With the inevitable collapse of our economy coming, I’m looking out for myself, and I encourage others to do likewise. Some will be ready for it, and many will not. Set aside food and water, and tell no one that you have them. Otherwise, they will come and take from you what you bought for yourself, and you will not have enough to carry you. This is not selfishness, this is survival. Some will be thinking ahead and preparing. A majority of folks will not be prepared at all.

  • http://lcevansauthor.blogspot.com/ L.C. Evans, author of Jobless Recovery

    You know what’s even worse than having your job shipped overseas? It’s having your employer import cheaper labor to take your job right in this country.

    When companies fire skilled Americans and replace them, in this country, with workers brought in from other countries, it’s about cheaper labor. We have the skills, we have the workers. What we don’t have is the jobs. And yet these employers expect the Americans they won’t hire to fight and die in the U.S. military to protect their interests.

    The comments like from Tel are not correct, including the recent one from Steve Jobs. Laptops will certainly not go from a 1000 to 5000, this is how they do it to us. Its a scare tactic that has worked wonderfully for this anti American garbage. I make case goods and for a Chinese product made from the same materials I am only roughly maybe 25% more, but that has to do mainly with purchasing power. The warranty on my goods, finish and quality are unmatched with Chinese goods. If we work together we can rebuild our great nation, stop listening to people like Jobs and stop purchasing their products.

  • Will Larimer

    The problem described in “Need A Job?” has been thrust onto the U.S. and was planned before 1971 according to a highschool teacher that instructed a class called distributive education. I had a job in a grocery store so I got 2 hours of work time as highschool credits if i enrolled in the class, so I did. When I asked the instructor “why the new curriculum?” he explained that “they” have decided that we were going to a new retail economy and we would lose our factory jobs. I told him “that’s stupid,it ain’t gonna work” Well it worked alright. Many people made small fortunes in the stock market that began booming when R.Reagan attacked U.S. manufacturers.
    This is the inevitable result of a nation that doesn’t work productively for 30 years, while living on credit. It puts the sacrifice in “Well… We all have to make sacrifices”.

    don’t the large AMERICAN corporations have a responsibility to keeping jobs in the US? I can think of IBM who is guilty of offshoring north american jobs overseas. can you boycott IBM?

    The American way of life is UNSUSTAINABLE…plain and simple. We consume too much of everything then complain when the money runs out.

    I’m an American “Expat” living in southeast Asia. My rented room costs about $30/mon. and I have plenty of time to live like a human being rather than a plantation slave. (I’m speaking figuratively here)

    AMERICA….WAKE UP!
    1. stop building “McMansions” (tract homes)
    2. eliminate zoning-laws.

    I don’t need a car or even a bicycle. I WALK anywhere I want to buy food, clothing, have my clothes mended or tailor-made; and yes, I even bought this ACER laptop I’m using right now just walking distance from my modest rented room (which is quite nice actually).

    Did you know that MOST countries DO NOT have zoning laws? What’s it like to live in a country with no zoning laws?

    WONDERFULLY CONVENIENT!

    No car, no payments, no petrol, no insurance, no problem!

  • Susan

    The American economy has been technically bankrupt for over 15 years. Who is going to fix it. Not the current generation of children – they are uneducated and mostly illiterate! In the past, the solution was to start a war or invade some country. What is the military for? If things don’t change soon, the military is going to be used to protect the politicians who have stuffed the country and torn up the constitution. I have left the country and am not coming back. I advise you to do the same or be prepared for even worse times!

  • jim biggs

    shallow thinking one and all

    what are the reasons comapnies close their doors, or ship to countries overseas?

    cost and regulation, period

    what drives cost? supply and demand

    and what is the public demanding? higher wages, and cheaper products.

    you cant pay a man a wage, when noone is buying your stuff cause china is making it cheaper

    you cant pay a union wage, when you add in all the bennies demanded for less work

    and to top it off, you have to have an einstein on the payroll just to make it through the landmines known as regulations

    talk about shooting yourselves in the foot

    yell at me all you want, but if you group all businesses together, and blame them for all the problems, thinking that greed is what drives them, maybe you should look inward

    this issue is caused by everyone equally

    With every purchase made at WalMart of any item not made in the USA, we are growing the economy of another country while at the same time destroying our own economy.

  • Golden Child

    Cheaply made products manufactured overseas and sold at ten to three hundred times the production costs in America is nothing new. Americans are just too stupid too realize that those Air Jordans you pay $300 for were assembled by starving Chinese children at the coast of $5 a pair. I’m nearly 30 and I remember when I was a little kid in the 80’s, all of my toys, Nike shoes and clothes had “Made In China” stamped somewhere on them.

    Society is conditioned to think as consumers and forget the blindingly obvious fact that in order to be consumers we need to be employees (or on welfare paid for by employees)

    So whilst the consumer side of us is seduced by cheap goods we overlook the fact that by supporting wealthy CEOs making a killing on the sweat of overworked, underpaid Asian workers – we are actually undermining the sustainability of our own jobs.

    We are literally buying into a race to the bottom where jobs will effectively be auctioned to the lowest bidder – the person who is willing to put up with the lowest pay and worst conditions will get the job (and fired when they find someone even more desperate).

    None of us are born with skills such as engineering, we learn them over the course of our life, and therefore within a generation someone, somewhere in the world will be able to do YOUR job for less money and willing to put up with worst conditions.

    I’d like to see a global minimum wage, and maximum working hours, and for us to refuse to buy goods from countries that don’t sign up to it. It will never happen though.

    On another note, what are all these cheap goods doing to the environment? Aside from the damage done by transportation, goods are so cheap that nobody gets things repaired any more, and often they aren’t made to last. Which is wasting the worlds natural resources.

    We may rightly chastise wall street for being greedy – but the truth is that most of us (myself included) are greedy – we’ve lost sight of the fact that food, warmth and shelter are the essentials of life – everything else is a bonus, not essentials – and we don’t need to keep buying the latest Whatever.
