Could this be a better way?

Although politics is not the best way to stabilize one’s blood pressure, it is a very necessary segment of human existence. I could not resist the world-wide media circus of the GREAT DEBATE between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

I won’t waste words and time rehashing that which has been rehashed more than enough. However, there is one thing which was mentioned briefly by Hillary Clinton as she described her vision for America’s future .. PROFIT SHARING.

Having worked and retired from a company which practiced profit sharing, I am surprised that more companies are not doing it, I believe it is a much better strategy than having labor and management trying to outfox each other with an outcome of driving costs up and profits down.

I hope Hillary expounds more on profit sharing during the rest of her campaign.

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.
