What If: All Shipments From OPEC Nations Stop Until The Sunni And Shiite Stop Hating Each other?

What If: All Shipments From OPEC Nations Stop Until The Sunni And Shiite Stop Hating Each other?

The headline is meant to be a philosophical question to you. What do you think would be the result on all of the world stage if Iran/Shiite populations of the Middle-East go to an overt shooting war with Saudi Arabia/Sunni populations of the Middle-East? Then of course there would most likely be the spillover effects. ISIS, al-Qaeda, Hamas and other Sunni groups like them joining together to fight against the Shiite groups like Hezbollah. If this did happen where would be safe place for a peaceful person to hide anywhere in that region of the world? Who would be able to stop the bloodshed if this civil war were to be carried out on our own shores? The hate that is being shown going on between these two Faith/belief systems is to a measure like Christians and Catholics going to open war simply because the other, is the other. Both believe in the same Father, same Son, and the same Spirit! They should never had war against the other, let God sort us out, if one was more correct than the other let Him be the Judge, not us. Within Islam both of these major Sects believe in the same God as being The God and they believe in the same Prophet, Mohammed. So, do you personally think that it is possible that if this current flare-up between Iran and Saudi Arabia does not cool off soon that there could be overt war between the two? If that were to happen what would happen to all of the worlds markets. Are there any governments globally that can operate if all oil from that region of the globe stops flowing? The world does need to be off the need for all fossil fuels but where is that infrastructure in place at right now? The world needs to wake up, our world is based on profit margins and stock values, not on any Nations abilities to survive! Folks, that is what puts our 100% Capitalist system at a disadvantage. The people whom have the power cherish having the power. To not feel so would be showing a weakness to the other wolves. Profits are more importance to some than the safety of the Nations and the people who make those profits for them! So again I ask you this question, if OPEC’s nozzle shuts off, what will that cause to happen in your world?

Is China’s Economic Policy A Copy Of Wal-Mart’s Economic Policy?

 

When I was in college a decade ago I learned that in the U.S. that Wal-Mart, (Sam’s Club) (Lowe’s) (Walton family) had one dollar out of every nine dollars going through their hands each year according to the GDP. This is great if you are a person that holds a whole bunch of Wal-Mart stock, or is it? That would depend on if you are a person who loves this country, or if you are a person whom does not. I learned back in the mid and late 1980’s that the Wal-Mart slogan of them only selling American made products was a total lie. Back then I drove a truck for a living and when trucks going into the docks of North New Jersey to pick up loads going to Wal-Mart Distribution Centers it was a normal thing that the material we were to pick up would be staged on the docks waiting to be put onto the trailers yet we would have to wait for several hours to get it loaded. The reason was that the dock employees first had to remove all of the stickers saying where the products originated, like China, and then put on stickers saying “made in the U.S.A..” In my opinion Wal-Mart grew the way it did through lies, deceptive marketing, and fraud.

 

I really liked radio commentator Paul Harvey a lot, I really liked listening to his stories, the only trouble I had with him was that he was very naive. He used to talk about how we couldn’t have a better neighbor than when your community got a Wal-Mart store in their town. We the people and the small business people of these towns knew better. When a Wal-Mart store moved into a town pretty much all of the small store and all of the ‘Mom and Pop’ store quickly got put out of business. When this happened then the town’s people pretty much ended up having to shop at that Wal-Mart store or travel long distances to places that didn’t yet have one. Do you remember how it used to be a normal thing for a new Wal-Mart store to be built across the street from a K-Mart store and how then most of those K-Mart stores went out of business? Wal-Mart did finally quit the lies about only buying made in America products as we the people learned that we were buying items laced with poisons, they didn’t have American companies to blame it on, they had to come clean to the public about where the products really came from. In most cases it was coming from China. This poison was in may things, like baby food, pet food, and the pain on children’s toys. Many other U.S. companies are guilty of these actions as it is they whom closed their factories here in the States and Canada so that they could reap higher profit margins by using the much cheaper labor markets in Asian countries like China. If you noticed when a company moved their factories to a cheap labor market when those products showed up on store shelves here in America the prices did not go down for the consumers. The game is all about profit margins.

 

As companies here in North America put our workers on the unemployment lines destroying our own country, China started to boom. Wal-Mart had multiple half a billion dollar cargo ships (made in China) built that are too large to go through either the Panama Canal or the Suez Canal. These ships were built to sail from China to the west coast ports of North America. For Wal-Mart it is a win-win situation as they do not have to pay other companies to haul their freight for them. Just like they are phasing out their own truck drivers and started contracts with the lowest bidders, it is about maximum profits, period. Folks, when we buy products that are made in China we are putting money into the Chinese coffers and raising our dept to them. How much longer will it be until the Chinese Government calls in the loan on the 13 trillion dollars we owe them? How much longer will the dollar be the world standard-bearer? How much longer until the world currency is China’s Yuan (Renminbi (RMB))? Have you ever went around your local stores and checked where the products were made? Is it any wonder that now the U.S.Congress is trying to pass a bill making it where the people aren’t even allowed to know where the meat they buy comes from? Wal-Mart years ago got rid of the grocery packers forcing the customers to load their own groceries. Then they started putting in self checkout isles for the purpose of getting rid of the register checker employees. Last evening on the news I heard where they are now going to be replacing almost all of their office people with computers and robotics. If you have no employees you have higher profits, not lower priced products!

It is no wonder to me that as the U.S. is declining and that China’s military power along with their Leaders arrogance is increasing. Yesterday in China at the G-20 conference did you see how disgracefully and how arrogantly our President and his personnel were treated by the Chinese Government and their Officials? President Obama and those with him were treated as enemies, not as trading partners or as friends or even as someone they hoped to have as a friend someday. Yesterday the Chinese Government, (and you know damn well that their President Mr. Xi Jinping okay-ed those actions, they treated our President and the people of our Country as though He (President Obama and Us) did not deserve any courteousness. Yesterday the Chinese Government basically took a piss in the face of our President and our Nation!

 

Folks, every time you or I buy an object here in the U.S. (OR ANY PLACE THAT IS NOT IN CHINA) we are putting bullets in their guns that they will use against the U.S. and against the rest of the world. For years their policy has been to make things for the foreign markets as cheaply as possible. The ideology is simple, play on the greed of the people and companies in the open world markets. This gives work and wages to their own people while taking jobs away from other countries, closing up their factories and their industrial center capabilities. This also takes tax revenues away from other Nations making it impossible for other countries to afford to buy or build weapon systems even for self-defense. Just like with Wal-Mart ideology of putting everyone else out of business so that they rule where people can buy any product and what that price it is allowed to be, China is using that same philosophy. Pretty soon China will enforce its domain over the South China Sea and they will give Taiwan the option of surrender or be blockaded from all outside trade and revenue. They will do this as Russia weakens NATO’s resolve to their west, just like Turkey (a NATO country) is dividing NATO via courting Russia, the EU, and the U.S. concerning the Kurdish people. How many fronts are the people of the U.S. willing to go to war with? Russia believes they can break NATO and China believes that the U.S. does not have the will to go to war with them. As China makes the U.S. weaker economically, they believe they make the will of our people to go to war weaker. Unfortunately I believe that these actions will come about in less than one decade. Wal-Mart has used China well, or, is it that China has used Wal-Mart well?

China’s Biggest Industries Profits Soar: But What About The Workers?

(This article is courtesy of the Shanghai Daily News Paper)

China’s industrial profit growth speeds up

PROFITS of China’s major industrial firms rose 6.9 percent year on year in the first seven months of 2016, accelerating from the 6.2-percent rise registered in the first half, the Nation.

Profits of China’s major industrial firms rose 6.9 percent year on year in the first seven months of 2016, accelerating from the 6.2-percent rise registered in the first half, official data showed Saturday.

Total profits of industrial companies with annual revenues of more than 20 million yuan (3 million U.S. dollars) reached 3.52 trillion yuan during the January-July period, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said in a statement.

In July alone, their profits surged 11 percent to 523 billion yuan, the second highest monthly growth this year and much faster than the increase of 5.1 percent in June.

He Ping, an official with the NBS Department of Industrial Statistics, attributed the strong growth in July partly to dropping cost, commodity price rebounds and a relatively low comparison base.

Last month, the average cost of those companies was 86.08 yuan for each 100 yuan of main business revenue, down 0.42 yuan from July 2015, the data showed.

He added the prices of ferrous and non-ferrous metal products rebounded recently due to changing market conditions, resulting in profit surges in those sectors.

The ferrous metal making and processing sector saw a profit of 14.83 billion yuan in July, compared with a loss of 1.39 billion yuan in July 2015. Profit of the non-ferrous metal processing sector climbed by 6 billion yuan from a year ago.

The two sectors contributed to 47.5 percent of the total profit growth of industrial companies tracked by the NBS, according to He.

Al Bureau of Statistics said Saturday.

BBC Report On Exhausted Apple Work Force

BBC Report On Exhausted Apple Work Force

(THIS ARTICLE IS FROM DECEMBER 19th, 2014)

Apple, the most valuable company in the world. Companies do not get to be more and more valuable by giving out better wages, benefits, and working conditions to the low life serfs who actually make their products. The more you as a company can literally squeeze the blood out of the ones actually doing the work, the higher the profits. It is that simple and anyone in business knows that. The less I am forced to give you the worker, the more for the bosses.

 

Businesses DO NOT care about anything except profit margins. Stock holders DO NOT care about anything except the largest possible profits on their stock investments. No profitable company gives a damn about the lowly scum who actually do the work, workers are a dime a dozen, if they die, they will just grab the next hungry person in line and throw them into the dead persons spot. The concept of a stock market requires this necessity, simply put, if the CEO and other brass do not squeeze out enough profits each quarter they will be replaced from their throne by someone who will squeeze out every penny from those who are starving. If you think that the workers matter you are quite possibly a fool, ignorant, or simply a liar (just my opinion). ONLY PROFITS MATTER, not, the low life scum of the earth who actually do all of the physical work. I have learned this first hand from 45 years in the American work force. 30 years as a long haul truck driver, going into thousands of work places seeing first hand how little the workers matter to the ones who run those businesses.

 

Here in America, Wal-Mart is the single biggest driver of starving American workers. Not just in the fact that the biggest stock holders demand higher profits at all times, like the four Walton kids who simply by blood line became billionaires. Wal-Mart has one in nine of every dollar in Americas GDP go through their hands every year. That is more than 1.1 Trillion dollars people. Yet they refuse to hire their work force (the extreme majority) as full-time workers, pay them a wage where they can live more than a minimal existence, or furnish the workers with affordable medical insurance. This would interrupt their billions in profits. Very recently the company has paid 500 million dollars to have three ships built for the sole purpose of transporting goods from China to the west coast of America. The reason I say this is because all three ships are too large to fit through any of the world’s shipping  canals. You and your family can starve to death for all these billionaires give a damn. Until the American people wake up and do not shop at Wal-Mart at all, until we as a nation demand that Wal-Mart and other companies like them buy from American companies whose factories are here in the states employing American workers full-time, then we the people just keep making life harder, worse on ourselves.
