ONE OF MY GREAT LISTENERS SENT ME a story about manufacturing in the United States. Guess what? While we will never see manufacturing in the states like we had in the '50's, some jobs are coming back! Caterpillar, GE and Ford have all announced that they are shifting some jobs back to the US because energy costs and production costs are going UP overseas. That's right, it's now good business to manufacture goods here. Why? All that natural gas were bringing out of the ground!! Drill baby drill! Labor costs are also going up in the third world. Now don't get too excited, the number of jobs returing is really quite small, but it's a start!
I WANT TO GET A JOB AT THE IRS. ACCORDING to the latest on the agency, workers were using agency credit cards to buy (among other things) romance novels, diet pills, wine and party supplies. I have reached the conclusion that the biggest problem with the IRS is NOBODY was running the joint. From what I see, the inmates were running the asylum. A change in management is absolutely needed. I know conservatives want to blame everything on Barack Obama, but it seems to me that the managers just had no clue about running the agency.
