Coming To America But Not Made In The USA – Honda, Toyota Are Coming And You’re Paying The Toll

Local value added economies that once energized a vast middle class in the USA are being destroyed. Local value added economies that produced the awesome industrial might that won World War 2 and help restore other local economies around the world has been chopped up into pieces and sent around the world. Now we are paying economic bribes to bring some of the pieces back to the USA. In essence tariffs have been taken off products and put on workers.

The states of Ohio and Indiana competed for the new Honda auto assembly plant. This comes after more than 400,000 U.S. auto workers have lost their jobs. The Made in the USA label is gone. They call it Built in the USA now. They should call it Only Assembled in the USA. The parts come from the wage slave labor markets of the world. Workers in Central America make only 50 cents an hour. When they try to organize, they lose their jobs with some losing more.

Ohio had offered Honda $78 million dollars to come to Ohio. Indiana offered Honda about $56 million dollars to come to their state. Plus, Indiana will spend another $100 million dollars to build roads etc. to support the Honda facility. This means, Indiana is spending over $100,000 for each job. Indiana “won” the deal.

This comes at a time when about 20,000 auto parts workers have lost their jobs in Indiana. In their place, Honda is hiring 2,000 assembly workers. This is a net loss of about 18,000 workers. Obviously this does not make any sense. On top of this one city in Indiana paid out $10 million dollars to entice Honda to come. The money comes from their share in gambling casinos. So like tax payers, gamblers are paying money to lose their jobs too.

The State of Georgia is paying KIA $400 million dollars to have KIA build their assembly plant in their state. It adds up to about $200, 000 for each job. Many workers at Toyota in Kentucky say they have been betrayed. Full time workers have been replaced by part time workers and temporary workers who make much less – about $13 an hour. In 1970, a brand new medium size car like a Mercury Montego cost about $3,600 brand new. A first class postage stamp cost 8 cents. There were plenty of $10,000 to $15,000 a year jobs. Today the same car costs about five times more just like a first class stamp. This means there should be plenty of $50,000 to $75,000 a year jobs but they no longer exist. Two workers in a family are happy to make that much today. In the inner cities, workers are making much less. In Cleveland Ohio, Wal-Mart got more than 6,000 applicants for about 400 jobs. These jobs only average about $11 an hour which means most of the new workers make much less. The Wal-Mart store was built where steel factories once were. It seems like a sacrilege. In Chicago, Wal-Mart got about 25,000 applicants for about the same number of jobs at each store. This proves there is a vast underclass trying to survive.

Reportedly 50 percent of Honda, Toyota and Nissan auto parts are made in the USA. However, this percentage most likely includes sub-contractors from outside the USA. These foreign auto assemblers farm out the auto parts to contractors who in turn use sub-contractors. Some parts like pistons and valves are machined abroad. 25 percent of the transmissions are imported too. Honda workers in India are protesting for the right to organize. For many years, workers in other countries have tried to organize without much success. Many organizers have lost more than their jobs. How can any employer live off the working poor in this country and destitute workers abroad? In the Free Enterprise system, workers should enjoy a living wage but now owners and employers are far from the places where the work is done.

Once upon a time, companies in the USA who employed 5000 workers were considered to be small to medium size companies. The stock market rewarded companies who increased their work force with an added value for their stocks when worker once meant growth etc. Now , workers are fired for the sake of stock values and productivity is based on the same thing – cutting workers. Then when companies need workers, they complained there are no experience workers to find.

The first assault on American auto companies took out more than 400,000 auto workers. More than 700,000 workers have lost their jobs in steel. Now workers are paying taxes that are used to replace their jobs. This is the New World DisOrder of the Dysfunctional Globalists.

Famous Gamblers – Doc Holliday

John Henry “Doc” Holliday was born in Georgia in 1851. His mother died when he was a teenager, and his father quickly remarried. His family had great expectations for John Henry since his father was an important person in town and had even been elected mayor, and so to please his parents, John Henry chose a profession – dentistry. He completed dental school, served a two-year apprenticeship, received the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery, and with a partner, opened a dental office in Atlanta.

Not long after he started working, the doctors told him that he was severely ill with tuberculosis and gave him only a few months to live. He might add a few months to that death sentence, they suggested, if he moved to a drier climate. Doc quickly packed his gear and moved to Dallas, which was as far as the railway ran at that time. He tried his best to practice as a dentist but his frequent coughing spells made it impossible to be successful. It’s hard to pull a tooth or insert a filling when hacking with a cough. As his business declined, he looked for another way to make a living and discovered that he had a lot of talent and natural ability as a gambler, and he decided to make this his career.

The American West at that time lived up to its reputation of being wild, dangerous, and lawless, so in order to protect himself Doc practiced with a knife and gun until he became an expert. He traveled around the southwest buying bars, gambling, and getting into a series of arguments, gunfights, shootings and killings, which earned him a well-deserved reputation for being a nasty man with a bad attitude. You can understand his recklessness; he felt he had nothing to lose since he would be dying soon anyway. He thought it would be better to die in a gun or knife fight than from tuberculosis. He constantly ran from one town to the next, often a few steps ahead of a posse out to string him up. He excelled as a gambler and in spite of all the upset in his life built up a small fortune from his winnings.

In Fort Griffin, Texas, he rescued Wyatt Earp from an angry group of men who had him surrounded and was about to kill him. Doc’s usual troubles – fights, arguments, and killings – forced him out of Fort Griffin and he joined Wyatt and Wyatt’s brothers in Tombstone, Arizona, a booming silver-mining town. The Clancy bunch, a gang of cattle rustlers, thieves and murders according to most reports, ran freely around town. The locals tolerated them because they frequented the bars and other businesses and while in town took care to behave themselves. Ike Clancy, the leader, and his supporters resented the arrival of the Earps and Holliday who started to bring law and order to the area. They picked a fight with Doc (easy to do given Doc’s quarrelsome nature) and set out to kill him. The quarrel escalated and eventually resulted in the famous Gunfight at the O. K. Corral in 1881. It’s unclear exactly who started it and in spite of all the hype it only lasted thirty seconds and only three men were killed. Doc Holliday took a bullet in the hip, which only caused a bruise, and he survived. Many gunfights in the Old West were bloodier but this achieved the most notoriety. Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday were arrested for murder, but they were never tried since the grand jury said there wasn’t enough evidence.

In 1887 Doc’s health deteriorated rapidly and in November of that year he died saying, “This is funny.” What was he thinking? He was certain he would be killed in a gunfight, or hanging at the end of a rope, or by a knife in the ribs. He died peacefully in bed and to him that was funny. Friends and enemies eulogized Doc Holliday as perhaps the best gambler of the Old West.
