Default How true is this!!!

John 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 ),



John decided to relax for a while.



He put on his sandals





(MADE IN BRAZIL)





poured himself a glass of



wine



(MADE IN FRANCE)





and turned on his



TV



(MADE IN INDONESIA),



and then wondered



why he can't find



a good paying job



in AMERICA

Glad I grew up in a time when made in Japan meant poorly made, and we didnt even talk to China. It'* all over but the crying to the unemployment line these days.

That is what we get, when we over tax Corporations. They leave this country for more favorable Tax status in those other countries. Tell your politicians we don't need a global economy. We need tax relief for corporations, so they will find it favorable to manufacture in THIS country. Thank you Bill Clinton for NAFTA (circa 1994), the beginning of the End. We need Tax relief to create jobs, NOT a $250,000 per American Worker (eh,eh) Stimulus package.
yup!
I agree

Sad but true, but the American workforce has been sold out by the corporate board room to fill the coffers of the stockholders.
