Why America’s economy fell off the cliff

John Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN) for 6 am. While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG) He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA), designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE) and tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA).

After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA) he sat down  with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO) to see how much he could spend today. After setting his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN) to the radio (MADE IN INDIA) he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY) filled it with GAS (from Saudi Arabia ) and continued his search for a good paying AMERICAN JOB.

At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day checking his Computer (made in MALAYSIA), John decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL), poured himself a glass of wine (MADE IN FRANCE) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA), and then wondered why he can’t find a good paying job in AMERICA

  1. so here’s my revision for the guy who wrote that email:

    Mr. International Cry Baby starts the day late hitting his snooze alarm (Invented By American General Electric) several times.

    He turns on the lights (Light Bulb And AC Electric Current Courtesy Of Americans Thomas Edison And Nikola Tesla) and turns off his electric fan (Invented By American Schuler Wheeler In 1882)

    Crybaby brews some Starbucks and toasts some bread (Bread Slicer Invented By American Otto Rohwedder And Toaster Invented By American, Charles Strite, Thank American Agriculturist Norman Borlaug For The Wheat. His Green Revolution Kept Millions In The Third World From Starving To Death. He’s The Greatest Man Alive).

    He brushes his teeth (Nylon On The Toothbrush Fibers Invented By American Wallace Carothers)

    He shaves with his electric razor (Invented By American Gillette In 1904), puts on some deodarant (Invented By American Jules Montenir) and puts some Rogaine on those bald spots (Rogaine Courtesy Of American Upjohn Corp.)

    He irons his shirt (Electric Iron Invented By American Henry Seeley In 1882) puts on his designer jeans and Nike shoes (Jeans Invented In 1873 By Americans, Levi Strauss And Jacob Davis).

    After cooking his breakfast on an electric stove (Also Invented By American Lloyd Copeman In 1896) he puts the dishes in the dishwasher (Dishwasher First Invented By American Josephine Cochran). He sits down with his calculator (Also Invented By Americans At Texas Instruments In 1966) to see how much he can spend.

    After setting his watch to the radio (American Scientist Tesla First To Produce Reliable Frequency Currents, Correct Time Courtesy Of Atomic Clock First Invented By Us Govt And Hewlett Packard) he gets into his car (Car Radio, Muffler, Power Steering, Cruise Control, Automatic Transmission Courtesy Of American Engineers) fills it with gas (From the oil fairy unlike Americans who get it from OPEC and Domestic US sources). He turns on his GPS (Developed by the US Dept of Defense)

    Crybaby turns on his cell phone (Invented by American Martin Cooper). Wishes he had an American Apple iphone.

    He gets to work and goes up the elevator (American Elisha Grave Otis Invented The Passenger Elevator In 1857) gets to his air-conditioned office (Air Conditioner Invented By American Willis Haviland Carrier) and turns on his computer (Computers, Laptops, Transistors, Semiconductors, Integrated Circuits Etc All Designed By Brilliant American Physicists In The 1940s).

    Crybaby logs on to the Internet (Heaven Help Us…Also Designed By The Americans – US Dept Of Defense In 1970) and checks his email (Invented By American Ray Tomlinson In 1971). Crybaby writes a great one about the US economy falling off the cliff. Thank god other countries are able to make a living through American ingenuity. For all the brilliant contributions Americans make in the fields of science, medicine, engineering, it’s great to see their economy fall off the cliff ! But they do have that really cool president. Wishes his country had someone like that…

    He gets a Cold Coca Cola (Refrigeration First Invented By American Oliver Evans And American Frigidaire Co./ Coca Cola Invented By American John Pemberton) and gossips with colleagues.

    Crybaby then wastes some company time on GOOGLE (American !) checking Airfares (Planes/Flight Made Possible By Americans Orville And Wilbur Wright) and starts looking for an outsourced job with an American MNC or maybe even in sunny California. All those doctors and techy guys only made it big when they went to America.

    Then some shopping on AMAZON, some FACEBOOK, some TWITTER, download some music (Rock, Blues, Jazz, Hip Hop – All American Inventions) for his Apple IPOD (Also American).

    Then grab a bite at McDonalds and head home to watch Star Trek or maybe that new Terminator movie (Motion Pictures, Animation, Cameras also invented by Americans).

    Wonder what Crybaby’s day would be like without all that great American stuff ? These guys should try living without their laptop, email, internet, electricity for even one day. ha ha please pass on to whoever sent you that email

    God Bless America
