The Adapt Or Die Economy
Jobs, jobs, jobs.
Such a huge part of every election is jobs.
We need more jobs!!
“They took rrrr jobs!” — South Park
We need a leader that will help create jobs!!
Aaahhhh, silly dreamers.
Taxes and Tariffs? Do you really think that is going to bring jobs back?
They are gone because they are no longer necessary.
You may no longer be necessary.
It’s sad, but painfully true.
There are two options: cry, or learn/do something new.
The reality is your jobs are gone because they are obsolete. It’s either that or money. No matter what the taxes are, it will always be cheaper to have workers in South America or Asia, always.
You think a company is going to keep it real? Keep it American?
It’s all about input and output. How much does it cost to make our crap, and how much can we sell are crap for? Period.
The only jobs you can count on are the jobs that they can’t do anywhere else. The jobs that need to be here. The jobs of today. You know it is a “yesterday” job when it isn't’ here anymore. That’s hint #1.
Blue collar work? Tech from yesterday? Come on. Just because you had a job doesn’t mean that job should always be available. Be reasonable here. What did you tell your kid when they wanted to stay out later on a Friday night? Not an option. Same thing here, except the economy is your daddy.
Pretty sure cart making diminished after Henry Ford’s assembly line.
“They took rrr jobs!!”
I bet a lot of CD player companies hated the iPod.
“They took rrrrr jobs!”
Can you imagine if cart companies and CD player companies demanded that the government created more jobs in their sector? It sounds ridiculous, but it is exactly what’s going on here.
The Land Of Opportunity
What happened to us?
This is the land of immigrants.
The land of opportunity.
The land of inventions.
The land of hitting a dead end and finding a new route.
Thomas Edison, George Washington Carver, Rockefeller, Steve Jobs, Gary Vaynerchuk, Ben Franklin.
That’s us. Those are our people.
