Hmmm -- And We Wonder Why????

John Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock
(MADE IN JAPAN )
for 6 am .. 

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

Great post Sylvia.
I m just wondering where all this is leading...
Seems there is not solution.
All consumer goods are made in Asia and expected to be consumed by the jobless and moneyless western population.
Have a great day.

...maybe learn some technology/ skills so he could become game tester/desginer/website monitor or global goods vendor? Just saying, jobs can be created in US, if one knows how. Thanks for sharing.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
