Does America Need Manufacturing?

Does America Need Manufacturing?

A stick of wood has little or no inherent value. Have someone carve it into an ax handle and you have created value. The person with the ax handle has value, as does the business he works for, as does the neighborhood and town he is in as well as the country. For every ax handle made, value is added to the country.

When America abandons it’s manufacturers, it is abandoning the golden goose. No more value is added to the country.

Sure, we now have a “service” driven economy, but it ads nothing of value. Do you want fies with that? Is that adding any value? I’ll mow your lawn, you fix my car. Is any value added? Of course not. In fact, if all you have is service, eventually all the value of the country will be depleted. Every time the money has to change hands, someone takes some out to live on, some of it goes to pay for the roads and street lights.

Obama is planning to put another trillion dollars into a stimulus package, but it will all go away just like it did ten years ago when we no longer make anything anymore.

We’ve lost over 40,000 factories in the past 10 years. That’s a whole lot of value that is gone. What little manufacturing we have left is not enough to offset the value lost in the “service industry”. The stimulus will all go away unless our representatives start to realize where it’s going.

Democrats Stop Lies and Scare Tactics

Democrats Stop Lies and Scare Tactics

The Nevada Representatives, Dean Heller publishes a letter and USA Today publishes it as gospel. Heller says the Democrats should stop the lies and scare tactics because the Republican don’t want to kill Social Security and Medicare.

Doing a quick Google search brings up endless examples of just that, Republicans claiming that helping one another is against the constitution. And, since they took a pledge to protect the constitution (not to mention the pledge to destroy America), that means they must end those illegal programs. This is just one of so many examples of Republicans vowing to destroy Social Security and Medicare.

As always, this us just another example of how devoid of any conscience or morals the Republican party is. They are all just a bunch of liars and hypocrites.

Why anyone who doesn’t hate America still votes for these America-destroying Republicans is the question of the day.

Hey, Nevada! Heller must make you real proud! Just another Republican liar.
