Ain't it the truth?

Joe Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN) for 6am. While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA ) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG ). He put on a dress shirt ( MADE IN SRI LANKA ), designer jeans ( MADE IN SINGAPORE ) and tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA ).


After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA ) he sat down with his calculator ( MADE IN MEXICO ) to see how much he could spend today. After setting his watch MADE IN TAIWAN ) to the radio (MADE IN INDIA ) he got in his car ( MADE IN GERMANY ) filled it with GAS from Saudi Arabia and continued his search for a good paying AMERICAN JOB


At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day checking his Computer (Made In Malaysia ), Joe decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL ) poured himself a glass of wine ( MADE IN FRANCE.! France !! ) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA ), and then wondered why he can't find a good paying job in . AMERICA ....


Thanks Joe P

Maybe if Joe Smith stopped casting his votes as a pavlovian response to, say, the 1:24PM post and invested more time in understanding the national trade deficit then he wouldn't need to ask such stupid questions.

Also, all gas comes from America, since we have the refineries (all gas sold in America, at least)

and only about 12% of our oil comes from Saudi Arabia

Have you ever owned an American made product? They suck. That is because corrupt American unions force all new workers to join, demand incredibly costly benefits and cush job hours/conditions and then whine they are only able to get minimum, wage jobs with their high school diplomas when the companies outsources to other countries. We are a lazy and spoiled country compromised of citizen who are too lazy to know how to work hard or even vote. Besides all that, women do 90% of the world's work and most of that is unpaid . . . .
