Default Re: Forget Iran, Americans Should be Hysterical About This

This article is so full of excrement that I had to hold my nose to copy it. This female lies through her teeth about jobs "trending upward" in 2005. She is pulling this stuff out of thin air!!

Note specifically, the job classifications; this, from what was one of the most productive countries on the globe. When you have read it, perhaps you will send me a note and tell me what we are supposed to export to try and offset our ungodly trade imbalance.

Note, too, those fantastic salaries. Most are at or near the poverty level and inflation just keeps on rising. Since this is a 10 year prediction, I predict we are up Shit Creek in a chicken wire canoe without a paddle!

Forget college. If you can afford it, go buy yourself a broom, mop and bucket and join the rank and file of new entrepreneurs, your future awaits.
