America you are so yesterday

I wish I could say that I was surprised by this article.

It started with the manufacturing jobs then the IT gigs followed.

The Republican base the top 2% are critical to shipping these jobs overseas. They in turn either brainwash or bully the upper management of their companies to increase revenue per employee.

Subcontracted jobs are not counted in this formula.

They do not have worry educating their children because they are sent to private school. No need for public education.

We got ours, pull yourself up by your bootstraps.

Quietly they moved entry level white collar jobs overseas. These were the gigs where a person could get a foot in the door and have a shot at seizing the a decent job.

Now they have successfully demonized public school teachers. If I hear one more time a little old lady rail that second graders just cut out snow flakes.......

My 4 year old pre-school grandson who by no means is a Mensa candid has more technology skills than one of my senior sales guys.

How about talking to a 4 year old not at them....

Or recommitted to your country by supporting reasonably priced secondary education that prepares the CURRENT generation for decent jobs.

What is the upside to obtaining an expensive education with no hope for having a job to pay off the debt?

We need to support our new infrastructure through education, green jobs and 20th century transportation.

Maybe because Europe did not have the luxury of our wide open spaces, but it really shouldn't take two hours to get to DC from Philly.

Take the car off of the Pacific Highway return to the rails. Brain power and decent jobs.

We all need to revisit our attitudes. Those people have become US.

Or large employers who actually care about their country.

Yeah, I am playing the patriotism card.

Things are getting scary aren't they? We seem to insist on learning our lessons the hard way...

All the best to you and your family in 2011.
