A Thousand Words, Vol. 1, Issue 1.

The failure of American political leadership during the past three decades is well captured in a picture that accompanies a story about Apple and Foxconn.  The picture can be viewed here.

The story that the picture accompanies is about Apple and its manufacturing base in China.  Foxconn is the Chinese company that helps manufacture all those wonderful iPhones, iPods, iTablets, etc. sold by Apple.

Too bad these wonderful, high tech jobs are not here in America.  Ask your Congressman and Senator why they permitted American-based companies to deny Americans such jobs.  Was it greed by the One Percent and their bought-and-paid-for Congressmen and Senators?

The following citation contains a link to the story.
