Man, people will bitch about anything. Also you should probably brush up on reading comprehension skills before spreading rumors. His “shipping department” will be on vacation in the UK for a few weeks so shipments will be delayed.

We find it disheartening when jobs go overseas but the majority of us want the lowest price products so that means the workers in other countries get the job,in many places the work for a dollar or two a day,so unless we all stop shopping at Wall Mart and other places like Harbor freight the tread will continue.

I tell you, the outsourcing thing is hard for a business person to pass up. Anyone who has looked at the wages people are willing to work for on a site like ODesk will be shocked. I understand the sentiment though.. We all want to keep jobs in America. The encouraging thing is that in many sectors America is rapidly becoming competitive again as a labor force. Many companies who had previously moved their operations overseas are now moving them back here. That is the thing that makes America great, we’re smart enough to see where the business advantages are but tough enough to fight back and stay relevant.

I came here to talk about the comma. Seems like everybody’s talking about the colon.

I thought the comma was a metaphor, asking us all to take a moment and slow down, pause for awhile. I was wrong. Again.

Comma, comma, comma, comma, comma chameleon,
You come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams,
Red gold and green, red gold and green.

I just wrote that. I think it sucks. Can’t imagine anybody would ever make a song out of it!
