Outsourced. January 18, 2010

First to the American South, then to Mexico, then to God knows where – our union jobs, our manufacturing jobs, the ones kids came out of high school and followed their Dads into, set for life, as long as they had the backbone to do the deed.

They’re gone now, and their respective edifices are being torn down:

And so it goes, and so it goes.  We relinquish our grasps on what’s real in favor of what’s promised, always to be denied by those who stand to gain from the Global Shuffle.

The little town of Erving, along the Millers River, loses, as Wall Street rakes in the chips.

And so it goes.

and so it goes, we in America produce nothing but email and paperwork. Sad state of affairs. Production and jobs are elsewhere. Ask the stockholders why.

Wow. This somehow moved me to incredible sadness. Beautifully and simply put.

Such an evocative picture, CR, filled with greater meaning from your words.

Laurie, our place in the world is now to handle and knead money into yet more money, with none of it going to the average working American.

Jesus would be pissed.

Ursi, this sight and photo saddened me much more than I felt I had a right to impose on the nice folks who come here.

Ten, thanks. The folks who used to work here are losing their homes as we speak, and need a voice. I pray that I might be part of the solution rather than a passive observer, contributing to the problem.
