A Quick Note About the Decline and Fall of America

In a quick trip through Target today, I found the following items that were made in the U.S.A.:

Jelly Beans
Garden Clogs

Pretty much everything else I checked was made in China. The clothes were made in China, India and Malaysia. Even the rawhide dog bones were from China. If China shut down tomorrow, we'd be in a world of hurt.

Think about it. We're dependent on the Middle East for oil, and China for pretty much everything else. Is that healthy?

This New Year's resolution is bumming me out. Next year I'm going to resolve to dance more.

But president Bush says that globalization is good for our economy and the well being of America and he wouldn't lie to us, would he?

Yeah, and listening in on your telephone calls without a warrant isn't against the law. And Saddam was going to give all his stockpiled WMDs to Osama 'cause they're BFF (best friends forever). And Halliburton got all those sweet no-bid contracts because they were the best ones for the job. Being President is swell!
