Walmart workers are in the same boat......

They, on the whole, are broke every payday. Lining up for their paychecks so they can buy smokes and gas to get home. I guess we have to buy more Chinese trinkets to get these broke dicks through the week. After all, Clinton and the Republican gangsters gave our manufacturing base away years ago.

Wealth comes from making things not selling other peoples junk. But I've been warning people about NAFTA for over 15 years.

I hate being right but we haven't sen anything yet.

Even holding on to U.S. dollars is not a good move with the way the Fed is systematically devaluing the dollar. The Fed is artificially keeping rates at record lows so putting your money in a savings account amounts to stuffing it into your mattress.
