Our President said he is bringing back home 100,000 troops and he is going to pay each employer who higher them a big tax credit. This sounds good , but at what expense to the people that are replaced to make room for the troops who get the jobs? An other 100,000 let go workers go on unemployment lines, most of those that are going to be let go are family bread winners.

Why not entice our manufactures that shipped our jobs over sees to come back home to help out? Its now time to get angry and insist on help or raise tariffs on them so high that they will gladly want to come home again.

After WW2 our government had to find jobs for our returning troops and made money deals with the manufactures to hire them and train them in new jobs. I worked in a sweat shop back in 1946 and witnessed around a dozen women that were let go to make room for the new men the army sent in for jobs.

I was lucky because I wasn't  let go and one of those new soldiers that came in I fell in love with and had the greatest 65 years of marriage with Roy who just passed away 6 months ago.
