Winker, step away from the bottle!
Blah, blah, uniform, blah. Same here, pal. You know what I didn't serve for? I didn't serve so that the government can tell the
manufacturing companies where to have their businesses.
Russian is right, our unemployment is nothing compared to other nations, and ironically, those nations are much more socialistic than we are, but
while socialism is bad, being so far to the right that you allow individuals to own business but dictate what and where they can operate is bad,
Russian, the Germans don't boycott us? I don't know what they do. I do know that they, along with France and Germany, decided, for under the table
economic reasons, to stand against us in part of the War on Terror. Very much like a boycott, I'd say.
What we are facing seems to be typical as nations go from pre-industrial, industrial, post-industrial and then service. And, as Russian pointed out,
jobs come here. My area used to be big into textile, but that has gone south of the border. Since then, though, Alabama has become a target spot for
foreign auto industry, from Mercedec to Hyundai.
