LABOR DAY-A SAD DAY FOR AMERICA

Deindustrialization of America

The United States is rapidly becoming the very first “post-industrial” nation. All great economic nations eventually become fat, lazy and waste the wealth previous generations left them. The pace at which America is becoming a Socialist nation is unbelievable. America was the leader of the industrial revolution.

Americans showed the world how to mass produce everything from automobiles to televisions to airplanes. It was the great American manufacturing base that defeated Germany and Japan in World War II.

Tens of thousands of factories have left the United States in the past decade alone. Millions upon millions of manufacturing jobs have been lost in the same time period. The United States has become a nation that consumes everything in sight and yet produces less each year. Our biggest export today is waste paper. Yes, trash is the number one thing that we ship out to the rest of the world as we spend our money on whatever the rest of the world wants to sell to us.

At one time Americans could literally out produce the rest of the world combined. Today we consume more than anyone else in the world.

Every great nation throughout history has been superior at making “things”. We have created the biggest debt bubble in the history of the world. Progressives and unions have demanded a standard of living for every American that is impossible to maintain when we have 9% unemployment and over 40 million people on welfare.

Why? Look over the 18 following specific events that should wake up every American, and hopefully union members, to force our President and Congress to stop the eternal election cycle and do something “NOW”

#1 The United States has lost approximately 42,400 factories since 2001. About 75 percent of those factories employed over 500 people when they were still in operation.

#2 Dell Inc. (computers) has announced plans to dramatically expand its operations in China with an investment of over $100 billion over the next decade. They will close the last large U.S. manufacturing facility in North Carolina in November and 900 jobs will be lost.

#3 in 2008, 1.2 billion cell phones were sold worldwide. Guess how many of them were manufactured in the United States? None.

#4 According to the Economic Policy Institute, if the U.S. trade deficit with China continues to increase at its current rate, the U.S. economy will lose over half a million jobs in 2011.

#5 By the end of July, 2011, the U.S. trade deficit with China had risen 18 percent compared to the same time period a year ago.

#6 The United States has lost a total of about 5.5 million manufacturing jobs since October 2000.

#7 According to Tax Notes, between 1999 and 2008 employment at the foreign affiliates of U.S. parent companies increased an astounding 30 percent to 10.1 million. During that exact same time period, U.S. employment at American multinational corporations declined 8 percent to 21.1 million.

#9 In 1959, manufacturing represented 28 percent of U.S. economic output. In 2008, it represented 11.5 percent.

#9 Ford Motor Company announced the closure of a factory that produces the Ford Ranger in St. Paul, Minnesota. Approximately 750 middle class jobs will be lost because making Ford Rangers in Minnesota does not fit in with Ford’s new “global” manufacturing strategy.

#10 By the end of 2009, less than 12 million Americans worked in manufacturing. The last time less than 12 million Americans were employed in manufacturing was in 1941.

#11 In the United States today, consumption accounts for 70 percent of GDP. Of this 70 percent, over half is spent on services.

#12 The United States has lost 32 percent of its manufacturing jobs since the year 2000.

#13 In 2001, the United States ranked fourth in the world in per capita broadband Internet use. Today it ranks 15th.

#14 manufacturing employment in the U.S. computer industry is actually lower in 2010 than it was in 1975.

#15 Printed circuit boards are used in tens of thousands of different products. Asia now produces 84 percent of them worldwide. We manufactured 100% at one time.

#16 The United States spends approximately $3.90 on Chinese goods for every $1 that the Chinese spend on goods from the United States.

#17 One prominent economist is projecting that the Chinese economy will be three times larger than the U.S. economy by the year 2040.

#18 The U.S. Census Bureau says that 43.6 million Americans are living in poverty and that is the highest number of poor Americans in the 51 years that records have been kept.

Unions, progressive politicians and greed have created this unfortunate loss. Our government is now creating totally new regulations to force all industry to be unionized. Other than union members how many other Americans agree that unionizing everything will accelerate job growth?

HAPPY LABOR DAY TO ALL UNION MEMBERS. You have just about eliminated your future. Those cushy pensions and out of control wages and benefits you demanded will dry up the money well, it’s just a matter of time so hurry up and dig your own grave.

GASOLINE PRICE INCREASES-WHY?

 

 Regardless of how President Obama and his “Progressive” democrats, tree hugging lunatics, GE, Bill O’Reilly and the main stream media misinform you, the major oil companies have never been the reason for increased prices of gasoline. For purposes to identify this misguided group I will refer to them as “Obama’s Weirdo’s”. 

Price controls that this group always threatens to use, will not have any effect to lower what you pay for gasoline. If anything, it could cause the price to go higher.

To explain all of the reasons affecting the price of crude oil would end up being a book. OPEC alone could have a million reasons that would cause wild increases. With lunatics like Chavez, Qaddafi and Ahmadinejad impacting prices, they can shut down production if they wake up with a toothache. In my opinion the manipulators like George Soros and the arbiters who speculate in the futures market are the primary reason for most increases we had seen over time. These are the same people who make sure “Obama’s Weirdo’s” are funded to keep you excited. If you have time to read the millions of pages of events over the past forty years you would agree. Prove me wrong with facts, if you have the time, and I will apologize.  

The tree huggers would outlaw all gasoline using products and use oil to make plastic toilet paper. We would revert back to the horse and buggy for transportation. Airplanes and trains would be eliminated. Can you imagine the piles of horse crap that would pile up on a transcontinental trip?

Progressives have been screaming for 40 years for raising gas prices like they have had in Europe. They want the extra money to spread the wealth with welfare. Recently they are pushing for a Value Added Tax (VAT) like Europe, again to have more money to redistribute the wealth. Every idea they come up with punishes the people they have brain washed with money to not work, the poor.

Only one person on earth can stop the recurring oil price madness. Who can stop it in 24 hours, the President of the United States of America? Bush did it. Will Obama use this power, no he just keep blaming anyone he can. He stood up in front of America last Friday and lied to the people is why I make this statement. He told the American people that American oil reserves are not adequate to reduce our dependence on foreign oil. He stated that we have only two percent of the world’s oil reserves. Both of these statements are outright lies.  He stated that domestic oil production in 2010 was at its highest point in seven years which is misleading. Ten years ago our oil production was ten percent more than in 2010. In 1970 it was double what was produced in 2010. It has steadily decreased over the past forty years because drilling has been regulated and controlled by the “Weirdo’s” under most Presidents since Carter.

In 2009 the non partisan Congressional Research Service (SRS) reported that the U.S. supply of recoverable oil to be 167 billion barrels. This would allow us to have more than 75 years of not buying any oil from foreign sources like OPEC. That does not include the natural gas and coal reserves. SRS reported that when you add these other two resources we have the equivalent of 1.3 trillion barrels of oil.

In addition the U.S. Geological Survey announced that the Arctic areas of Alaska and offshore has about 90 billion barrels of oil. That alone is more than Nigeria, Kazakhstan, and Mexico combined.

If you seek the truth, ever since Obama was elected, there has been a constant pressure to impede more drilling. His success has been to make Americans more dependent on foreign oil and share more of our wealth with OPEC lunatics.

I have visited the Middle East and North Africa in my travels, working in the petroleum industry. Let me warn you about another asset they have a world class quantity of readily available. Should science ever find a way that will demand buying sand for America to survive, we are in real trouble. I can visualize it now, it will be known as the Organization of Sand Exporting Countries, OSEC.

Obama can force the price of oil to drop tomorrow with one simple announcement, “All regulations and barriers on domestic oil drilling have been eliminated effective today”.

For Tadpole and the rest of American’s who care, it’s your time, stand up and demand that the President and Congress act or just get out of the way.

      I spent 15 years traveling the world in the petroleum inductry. Chaired ANSI/ASME committee on offshore safety valves for a few years. I am nearing 81 and I read at least four hours a day on topics in the news. I do not watch the so called main stream media even give the weather as they can’t even do the weathers without an Al Gore/Michael Moore slant. I love this country and hope it stays togrether for my grandkids. C Brewer
