he turns his @ss to it….
Jus how can a great union in jus 233 years go from what a few fat farmers wrote about with the penmanship of poets (1776-the American dream)to a meltin’ pot of a bunch asinine “jack@sses and elephants” with an IQ of a hair on a gnats @ss.
The turnips in D. C. have squander over $100 trillion dollars from the Social Security System and Medicare….they have a debt load of over $12 trillion tat in most part in the hands of foreigners while America being $57 trillion in debt and each and every one blames the other.
Well, people…it’s time to get away from tis elephant and jack@ss mentality….screw your heads on straight and put your mind in the place of those who wrote the United States Constitution. People are not sent to D. C. to write thousands of Bills, party with special interest and tell their constituents back home tat he or she is sendin’ them sum bacon back cause Uncle Sam is ther to take care of you.
George Washington serve his country for only eight years and went home. In his September 17, 1796 farewell address he said tis “is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world,”…..and now look at tis place. The nice people of China are holding all most all Americas debt and what is not held by them the nice people of Japan and the UK hold most of the rest.
Now! in the year’s 1776-1910 ther had only been a total debt from the “turnips” in D. C. of $2.6 billion dollars without an income tax. In jus the short time (99 years) until 2008 tat National Debt has mushroom to a whooping $10.6 TRILLION and tat wus with every kind of tax them ther turnips in D. C. could think of to shove up the America taxpayers @ss. There has only been 1 ten year period tat the debt has gone down and tat wus from 1920-1930.
So! as anyone can see….tis is NOT a jack@ss or elephant thing….it is an American people thing and until the people get out of those elephant and jack@ss suits, put real people with character, faith in God, love for their Country, family and their job nothin’ is gonna change.
Being an O’fart with not much learnin’ I’ve taken the word “Washington” out of D. C….cause if the American people wus to sit down and read his farewell address they would sincerely do the same….
“Washington had been reelected unanimously in 1792. His decision not to seek a third term established a tradition that is now embedded in the 22d Amendment of the Constitution. In his Farewell Address of Sept. 17, 1796, he drew on the results of his varied experience, offering a guide for both present and future. He urged his compatriots to cherish the Union, support the public credit, be alert to the “insidious wiles of foreign influence,” respect the Constitution and the nation’s laws, abide by the results of elections, and eschew political parties of a sectional cast. Asserting that the United States and Europe had different interests, he declared that it “is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world,” trusting to temporary alliances for emergencies. He also warned against indulging in either habitual favoritism or habitual hostility toward particular nations, lest such attitudes should provoke or involve the country in needless wars.”
And today the United States of America has the largest company “Wal*Mart” with their China web page stating tis…
“Wal-Mart firmly believes in local procurement. We recognize that by purchasing quality products, we can generate more job opportunities, support local manufacturing and boost economic development. Over 95% of the merchandise in our stores in China is sourced locally. We have established partnerships with nearly 20,000 suppliers in China.”
Dang! with a quote like tat would make any American think twice bout why they took the “hyphen” out of the name and replaced it with tat STAR…..or even why they moved their Global Procurement offices to Hong Kong and then to China.
Now! if there be 182 country’s making items for the world to buy and they have only 5% of the pie in China…duh! This company makes the nice people of China support their currency(yuan) by keeping it in their country working for the people there…. but with the “yuan” going up in value and the US dollar going down…all the foreign items that the American consumer buys thinking it is cheap has went up in price.
People…its all about the currency and to keep a currency strong you got to keep it floating around the country you live in so it can work for you. For the past 12 years all them US dollars are being shipped overseas to a foreign bank and with the American worker not making anything for the foreigner to buy the “we the people” have to turn to the “second” largest employer in America(Uncle Sam) to sell “we the people” debt in order to get all them dollars back!
50 years ago a foreigner would had given their left nut for a US dollar or a Hershey’s chocolate bar and today the same foreigner has got Uncle Sam and the American consumer by both all the while Hershey is moving the chocolate factory to Mexico. Wake up! America and think “MADE IN AMERICA.”
quote*”Considering that there are over 30,000 ships at sea this morning,” writes James Carlton, director of the Williams College-Mystic Seaport Maritime Studies Program, in an e-mail, “the total number of organisms and species in this global ‘bioflow’ on the morning your readers read your piece could be staggering – billions of individuals, and thousands of species.”
Indeed, scientists have long considered ballast water the primary way invasive aquatic organisms are introduced. From the zebra mussel’s arrival in the Great Lakes, to an American jellyfish severely disrupting Black Sea fisheries, the potential costs of accidental introduction of a species to new homes can be tremendous. Aquatic invasives cost the US $9 billion yearly, according to estimates by David Pimentel, professor emeritus of ecology and evolutionary biology at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y. Zebra and quagga mussels (a cousin to the zebra) alone cost the $1 billion annually.*end quote!
tat is $9 billion a year in hidden taxes to all Americans…
cheap ain’t chic and it cost America…………jobs!
Feel free to read “The Flow of Trade in a Global Economy” by Lance Winslow. There is one quote from his article tat comes in mind. “Now let us look at Wal-Mart again; you buy a product there, 6% goes to the employees, 10-18% is profit to the company, 25% goes to other costs and 50% goes to re-stock or the cost of goods sold. Of the 50% about 20-25% goes to China, a guess, but you get the point. Now then, how long will it take at 433 Billion dollars at year for China to have all of our money, leaving no money flow for us to circulate? At a 17 Trillion dollar economy less than 40-years minus the 1/6 they buy from us. Some say that if we keep putting money into our economy, it would take forever, but if we do not then eventually all the money flow will go. If China buys our debt then eventually they own us, no need to worry about a war, they are buying America, due in part to our own mismanaged trade, so whose fault is that? Not necessarily China, as they are doing what’s in the best interests, and we should make sure that trade is not only free, but fair too.”
How do you think George feels being sent overseas in return for all tat foreign so-call cheap items and being left in a foreign bank because the American worker doesn’t make anythig for the foreigners to buy. Cheap items didn’t make tis great union of 57…oops! 50 states the greatest place on the face of tis Earth…..the American worker (union and non-union) did.
You can’t have a strong country without having a strong currency and you can’t have a strong currency unless you keep it floating around within your 50 states. Tis is why the store with the star in the name puts 95% China made items in their stores in China….to keep their “yuan” in their country helping the nice people there. And with only 5% left for all the other 182 country’s tat make stuff including the United States of America….tat doesn’t produce very many jobs outside of China.
Being an old person myself and knowing how it wus back in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s in tis union of 50 states….I look at George each time I pull him out of my billfold and make a promise to send him out for items made in America so after floating around helping each hand he touches jus maybe one day he will shake mine again.
oh! spend a little time on Michael Hodges “Grandfather Economic Report” series site as an American citizen not a Jack@ss nor Elephant and learn jus a few things tat are wrong with tis great union. You will see in only a short while tat it will take more than the @ss of a mule and the trunk of an elephant to get tis country back to where George left it on September 17, 1796.
