America has become a dust bowl, reminiscent of John Steinbeck's "Grapes of Wrath" where farmers left their devastated drought stricken farms to look west for work.

Today's unemployment has reached a staggering 600,000 and growing. The meltdown on Wall Street and the inability of small businesses access to loans and capital has created the greatest disaster in history for everybody, not only the "little man", but the "fat cats" in their ivory castles as well.

Now is the time to look at the psyche of the American person, and acknowledge that they have become lazy and overly-particular about what type of job they want to do.

It is time to bring back jobs to America.

It is no longer viable to outsource jobs to other countries. All those manufacturing jobs that are outsourced in China and Korea and India, etc. should be brought back into this country.

Government/States should give incentives to companies to bring manufacturing back into the cities and rural areas, which will create jobs for thousands of people. It will in turn create revenue for the States in company taxes and individual taxes.

It will bring better supervision of the quality of products being manufactured, so that there are no crises of milk pollution to kill babies, lead poisoning of children, poor quality materials used in manufacturing.

The price of goods may go up some, but not enough that the savings overall in the creation of jobs would not offset the increases. Earning $10 an hour is still better than earning $0 an hour and that should still include benefits.

It is an indictment on us, the American people, that we have allowed ourselves to become complacent and have not had the will to do our own work. There is nothing wrong with working in a factory producing quality goods for our families.There is nothing wrong with an article having the label "Made in America".

Bring back our jobs, bring back our soldiers, bring back our dignity.
