Will the jobs come back?

Some jobs are gone forever. They won’t come back. Some jobs are obsolete and/or threaten the planet in various ways such as polluting air, land, and water.

Entrepreneurs start businesses to make a profit. In a global economy, labor costs which play a large part in determining profitability, often make ,some countries’ more competitive for investment dollars.

In a world of rapid change, it is inconceivable that retraining does not have high priority in ANY country. Perhaps it is hard for career politicians to see this, since their jobs don’t change or disappear over time.

Hillary and hope or Trump and disaster

We might end up with two choices, Hillary and hope or Trump and disaster.

Many of the young idealists hoping for Bernie Sanders to deliver them from college debt and reestablish hope for their dream jobs are too young to remember when Richard (TRICKY DICK) Nixon rode into office on the backs of voters weary of riots by civil rights advocates and Viet Nam war protesters, and became a symbol of how to run a crooked administration. An administration which saw Vice President Spiro Agnew resign after being exposed for graft while in office, even excepting bribes on government property. An administration which saw the President resign under threat of impeachment because of the infamous WATERGATE scandal.

Government, like life, cannot be run with sound  bytes,  slogans or threats. Americans should be aware of this or they will see a repetition of history that is not very pretty.

When bad news is good.

Donald Trump is the best thing that could have happened to the media. Bad news is good news to the media because it makes their product more salable.
We have had bad news about the terrible killings in Brussels and Paris, as well as California. However, that kind of bad news, although salable, is depressing. Trump is salable without the depression of mangled bodies, and grieving relatives.

Look what the Republicans did.

The STOP TRUMP movement by the Republicans might expose the BIG LIE!
Maybe there never was a government of the people by the people.
The forefathers, who are often referred to by those who wish to laud our Constitution as the best set of laws in all humankind, were landed gentry who did not allow women to vote, not even their wives or mothers.
Donald Trump might be sounding the alarm for the US citizens to WAKE UP!

Where did the jobs go?

Many jobs from northern states like Michigan, and Ohio, went to southern “Right to Work” states. Some manufacturers eventually realized that relocating in foreign countries would produce even greater profits.  http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2014-09-04/u-dot-s-dot-south-draws-global-manufacturers-with-low-taxes-cheap-labor

This migration caused anguish and resentment among blue collar workers who felt they had been sold out by both parties, to look for Trump to make things right. They could not care less about his lack of class or demigod-like mannerisms.

Hey, this is the USA. Things like this happen here.
