The Dragon and The Tiger
Countries around the world have felt the weight of the Dragon (China ), and the Tiger (India ), as they stealthily walked across their lands; claiming jobs from workers. Slowly, at first, because the naive workers never noticed or felt their presents.
Until, it was too late , to be anxious about what was coming, as everyone, continued working to support their families; ignorant to the current status of their destiny. Rapidly, the ball of security started rolling down the hill of American Life as we knew it, into the negative pit of unemployment, because of Globalization.
The American Workers
The American Workers placed the responsibility of their unemployment at the doors of Greedy American Companies that Outsourced Jobs Overseas.The American Companies were not unaided in their voraciousness.
On this journey to financial gain were the Shareholders of these companies and Wealthy American Investors . They are all guilty of diminishing American jobs.
Here are some links to explain what our Congress did for our American Workers, and their future:

Globalization- The Good
The good for the American workers is-------there is none.
However, I do feel because of Global News Media Coverage, Human Rights Violations are exposed for the world to see. And I consider this Good, and hopefully it will stop the violations against people of all races, and in all countries.
Pursuant, of all the research I collected on Globalization, and it seems like a mountain of negativity staring back at me. How lucky am I to have my little Angel sitting on my shoulder reminding me to---- remain bias.
I tried to remain bias, nevertheless, I found mostly bad issues universally. First, and foremost-- countries were mostly using convicts, child labor, and street children,--- to fill these low paying, or no paying jobs.
No paying, because who can bear witness that corrupt governments do not keep all, or most of the outsourcing money they received for the finished products.
It is difficult for me to think about the children being used for labor. Are they suffering from being abused? Or, are their bodies in torment from not being given a proper diet each day? Are Outsourcing American Companies watching over their overseas employees?
At first, I could not believe that American Companies would allow abuse--but isn't that what they did to their own countrymen and countrywomen. Still, I am sure not all American companies tolerate abuse--.
When American Companies are asked about their Outsourcing American Jobs. Their common reply is: It permits companies to lower prices, which is good for the consumer . ( Now, this is a two headed fire breathing dragon, if I ever saw one! )
Now, what consumers are we talking about? The millions who have lost their jobs, and are now unemployed. Or the the ones who can only get low paying jobs, because that is mostly what is left.
I was told that College Graduates are now leaving their degrees off their resumes, so they will qualify for the lower paying jobs. (How much sadder is it going to get?) Or, they will be told they are over-qualified. That means no job and no consideration in the future.
College students can not obtain these jobs, because they are very few of them or none at all--they are overseas. And these jobs are: Back Office Support, Billing Services, Call Centers, Commerce, Customer Support, Data Processing, Design Service, Editors, Financial Services(Our Banks are even Outsourcing--scary, right!)
IT Consulting, Manufacturing, Networking Services, Product and Technical Support, Wireless Services, (I had issues with my Cell Phone-- and upon calling Customer Support----I talked to someone in India for help. Hello!) This is to name a few.

This is excellent reading showing Globalization and Outsourcing from their country.
The Dark SIde Of Globalization by Jorge Heine and Ramesh Thakur
I Guess Our Congress Forgot!
Yes, evidently they forgot about the Declaration of Independence.
What happen to our: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Veterans Unemployment Rate is 10.9 %
The Veterans Job Corp Bill would have created 20,000 jobs for our veterans who are home and more coming home. But it was blocked by the Republicans---McCain said it would increase the National Debt.
What happened to the federal obligation? They are compelled to provide for our fighting force.This might be where one would ask? How many sons and daughters are coming home from the war of Congress Members? Are we again back to the haves and have not’s.
Well, I can tell you Republicans and Democrats who are in Congress kicking the responsibility back and forth blaming each other (like children playing on the school ground) you had better wake up and take care of our sons and daughters.
These are the Americans who had your backs and now I wonder what they think of you almighty Congress today. You do not have my vote on anything against these brave Americans.

What a great comment and thanks for your visit. Greed of ones with deep pockets will never stop and we try to be smart in voting for the right ones who will represent us in way that will bring back jobs---but something smells to high
Heaven in that area.
You have a great 2013.

Well written and the horrible truth. 9 out of 10 small businesses no longer exist. The local economy no longer exist and will not save our economy when the big boys capitalize on all transactions to include being bailed out. If a famine occurred tomorrow there are not enough and often no farmers in the local area to save the people living there. We destroyed the average persons safety net in 30 years beginning in the 1980's. It is well known that in past recessions that small businesses blunted them and aided there recovery. Most depressing is the fact that globalization and Corporate practices have destroyed the customer base that once made them enormous money. If you pay people more money then they buy more things. Small business were there best customers. We are no longer practising Capitalism but a concept of greed where we squeeze all the juice from a lemon to maximize profits regardless of the markets you destroy.
