Today Sundays op-ed will be short since this news cycle is basically about economics. As a rule, most people don’t understand economics other than their own personal experiences. But with President Biden’s heretofore poor economic policies, virtually everything has risen significantly in price due to inflation. Labor issues with the longshoremen, including the bundled handling of their contracts, have resulted in the biggest backlog of container ships out in the harbors of Long Beach and San Pedro, the main cargo ports for the southern California area. The waiting time for these floating monsters with thousands of containers on each ship us currently unknown, and it can take up to weeks to unload each ship. Couple this with the truck driver shortage due to mandatory vaccines and higher fuel price, and one finds that inflation is running significantly higher than wages are rising. This problem can’t continue, yet there is no solution on the horizon.
Now for what I see is a major problem that we must retake what China has taken from us and that is moving our manufacturing back to the United States. I advise the United States to wake up and start the engines of life which is to secure the border and spread the manufacturing by starting our massive influx in space station operations. If we don’t start soon we will be to late. The United States needs to get back to the heart of America and put all of America back to work. Stop with all the free gifts of free easy living and lets put sweat back into the heartland. Please keep shockwave.us in your list of daily reading. Thanks, Robert Jordan.
