Welcome to the new and improved United States. We traded our jobs at Philco, General Electric, RCA, Admiral ect. For jobs at Best Buy. Who needs manufacturing when you can have retail? We traded our jobs at US Steel and Bethlehem Steel for jobs at TGI Fridays. Waiting tables is fun! Then we shuffled paper for 15 - 20 years, and that worked pretty well. But now it's over. Jobs are scarce. This isn't a recession, this is how it is. We had plenty of blow money from home equity, but that wasn't even real. What is real? Now . This is real. Now if we could only outsource our police and fire, the plan would be complete. Asia has waged economic warfare on us for over 30 years. They're winning.
