AIN'T IT THE TRUTH!!?
« on: January 21, 2007, 09:26:36 AM »
Joe Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN) for 6am. 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 TAI! WAN ) 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 ), Joe decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL ) poured himself a glass of wine ( MADE IN FRANCE.! France!! ) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA ), and then wondered why he can't find a good paying job in AMERICA.....

Here's the sad truth.  If we made it, we couldn't afford to buy it.

Joe Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN made for 5 dollars, sold to Joe for 50) for 6am. While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA 10 dollars/ sold for 80 ) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG 11 bucks/150 ). He put on a dress shirt ( MADE IN SRI LANKA0.35/ 25.95 ), designer jeans ( MADE IN SINGAPORE 1.25 / 220 (they are designer afterall ) and tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA .75/185.00 (most going to some sports guy).

Etc etc.  the sad truth is, they won't make the stuff here because we want to make enough to live off of, China, indonesia, Taiwan, India...  they have no such hang-ups.

While we're on this topic  there are things like this to think about.

If the world were 100 people
There would be:
57 Asians
21 Europeans
14 from North and South America
8 Africans
52 would be female
48 would be male
70 would be nonwhite, 30 white
59% of the entire world's wealth would belong to only 6 people
and all 6 would be citizens of the United States
80 would live in substandard housing
70 would be unable to read
60 would suffer from malnutrition
40 would have enough food to eat
20 would have money left after food and housing
 etc. to get "luxury" items.
1 would be near death
1 would be near birth
Only 1 would have a college education

This is a good way to bring it into perspective.

I first saw this on PBS strangely enough.  They do different installments.  I found the one that was most like it on the net.  Seeing as some of them are definitely wrong on the net.  There was one that said Most of the villagers would be Christian.  Which I think we are intelligent enough to realize that if there are only 5 north americans, there aren't going to be a ton of Christians.  There are other installments that I'm looking for like only 18 of the villagers would be over 50.

Being in a business that we make our product in China and ship here it always amazed me that it is cheaper to buy materials in Korea, ship it to Hong Kong or China, make the product there then put it on a boat and ship it here.  Though now the HK and Cinese people also want to make more money so it's starting to get harder and harder to make things there.  Nobody wants to work in the factories anymore.  They all want computer type jobs



Every day, from here to there,funny things are everywhere
