bunner: Speaking of statistics, here's some.[www.creditwritedowns.com image 850x595]I wouldn't buy it, though, I mean, the bureau of labor statistics just makes sh*t up. Hey, for all I know, they do although how they'd make money on it eludes me. Not to mention that electronics manufacturing has all but been exported wholesale since the early '80s. We're running out of things to make that people need, the resources to make them and while modern electronics manufacturing is in decline all over the world, it was a sandwich we never got a very big bite of. So no, comparatively we don't make a whole of stuff here anymore. And land, water, minerals and things are wealth, not bank notes. And the people pocketing those notes from offshore products ain't tipping the barista or the maid in the triple digits. Don't even bother with the fact that US companies who still make things aren't very big on OJT. It's changed. And to believe otherwise is your privilege, but don't stumblef*ck up to me with a mouthful of snotty remarks and tell me otherwise.
bunner: Fano:Interesting. People have been saying for decades we don't make things in America, and now I see by the amazing graph you have presented that we only haven't made anything since 2001. What does the right side of the graph scale represent? I'm a dullard, I'm afraid, and am curious as to what all those scary numbers mean.I hit the "show posts from ignored users" radio button for a quick refresh. No idea why.
durbnpoisn: I have an Android, so no Siri. But I still want to chime in and whine about invasive advertising... Even if it is completely unrelated to cellphones, Apple or anything else...How is it that we pay $160 for cable (if you're lucky), you get all these extra channels bundled together (no al la carte choicing), and even though you already PAY for the channel, you still have to sit through a ridiculous number of commercials?Yeah, yeah, yeah, capatalism, bla bla bla. It's still farked up.
FrancoFile: Yeah, that's why I still use these things called maps.
Your intellect is truly dizzying.
SpectroBoy: FrancoFile: Yeah, that's why I still use these things called maps.So you forgo the superiority and convenience of GPS directions simply to avoid something that might happen some day in the future?[25.media.tumblr.com image 504x305]Your intellect is truly dizzying.
