The Debt, the Economy and the Return of Mighty Mouse

   Many of my readers are likely too young to remember the phrase “Here I come to save the day!” This was Mighty Mouse’s catch phrase. He also sang a lot of opera which I never quite got as a kid.

   But I digress.

   I’ve written a lot of posts regarding the economy, offering suggestions on how to fix it. (One of my suggestions was actually presented to Congress) and like many of you I am pretty sick and tired of Congress’s petty politics, infighting and finger pointing.

   There is enough blame regarding our present state of affairs to go around. And our elected representatives have made it very clear they don’t care what we think, and why should they? We keep sending the same lot of bribe taking (That’s exactly was ‘campaign contributions are!) sycophants back into office. Why? Because they’ve managed to convince the public that it’s the ‘other side’ that’s trying to destroy America, and so they must be returned to office to prevent that from happening.

   It’s a great con instituted by Hermann Goering, Hitler’s War minister and 70 years later we keep falling for it  

   So put down your placards, stop the U-S-A, U-S-A, chants, put your anger on the backburner for a moment and gather round the campfire.

    Since I don’t have a horse in this race, nor any personal agenda I hope you will listen and hopefully believe me when I point out some serious realities that our representatives really don’t want us asking questions about.

   Here are the facts.

   The jobs lost in the Great Recession ARE NOT COMING BACK. Here’s why. The stock market has rebounded to the point that it has even surpassed the markets ‘highs’ set before the economic collapse. So with record breaking profits, why would businesses hire back the people they have learned to do without?

   Regardless of whatever altruistic reasons you may have for them doing so, THEY AREN’T GOING TO DO IT, because frankly, employees are a pain-in-the-ass. They have personal problems, play office politics, file lawsuits, demand raises, healthcare, 401K’s etc. So Mr/Ms employer is not going to hire you unless your skillset is necessary to the success of their business.

   It’s that plain and simple.

   New computer software technology is replacing entire departments that were mainstays for industries for decades. Departments like, Customer Service, Credit and Collection, Bookkeeping and yes even I T are being downsized and in most cases eliminated all together.

   So if you still happen to have a job and some money in your pocket, you might want to invest in 3 D printer technology because within the next few years it will likely replace all manufacturing and assembly line jobs and their workers.

   This scenario does not bode well for our heroes and heroines in the workforce does it?

    Unfortunately, it also doesn’t make it any less true. Nor the fact that the Department of Homeland Security recently purchased 2 billion rounds of ammunition. Apparently our government is taking steps for their own protection. As for us… well, good luck fellas, don’t call us, we’ll call you.

   Fortunately, all is not lost and to quote that late great American hero, Mighty Mouse:

“Here I come to save the day!”

   That’s right. I’ve figured out a way to save the day and make it possible for the American public to again earn a decent salary without having to work themselves to death with their present 2-3 minimum wage jobs.

   It is not a get rich quick scheme,  

   Nor is it anything you need to buy from me. What I have done is create a new website that provides detailed information on how you can add to and redirect your present skills and interests into those that are in high demand by the present business community. It WILL require study and commitment in order for you to be successful. FREE e books and video tutorials on a wide number of topics and disciplines will be made available to those interested.  

   Since our representatives in Congress see no need to take action to get middle class America back to work, I’ve decided I’m going to do it.
   And you can help by making a note to drop by this site on Monday. That’s when I’m going to roll out the new website with all its bells and whistles.
  See you then.
