    Maybe if our corporate "friends" would stop shipping all of the manufacturing jobs overseas, we wouldn't have these problems?

    There's nobody today smart enough to work in that field. We either died or left.

    Well gee I don't know how about insane environmental policy's. Or the asinine cost of doing business in this nation. or hell how the fact that the left has failed so badly in our education system that our work force is an utter joke compared to nations like India for good sakes.

    I'm betting you don't remember being told what was going to happen a very long time ago with the left's policy's but we were told 'Oh no we want a "Service based economy" well now you've got your "service based economy" don't like it so much eh?

    Let's look at today shall we .......what do we see from the left Business are EVIL tax them into non existence Business owner are rich fat cat TAX THEM into non existence the complete demonetization of our Business's by the left and now you're whining they've moved over sea's?........Really?

    You gotta be kidding me. Our workforce is far more educated and light years more productive than India's.

    Reading the article you have to note that much of the reduction in the workforce numbers for manufacturing and agriculture comes from automation. Worker productivity in these fields is boosted by mechanization.

    You also have to note that much more of our export value is in the service industry, be it finance or even entertainment.

    I agree with the writer that goverment overhead is far too high, but even those numbers you need to discount military personnel, as they really do not contribute to governance per se.

    VERY NICE dramatization and vaguery. Care to elaborate on these "left" policies you speak of?
