Just How Bad is Our Economy?

I knew that Michigan has the worst economy in the country, but even still, this is astonishing.

Unemployed Michigan workers are lining up to get jobs in

Iraq

Now granted the situation in Iraq is improving considerably, but if I go there I want a gun, flak jacket, and combat training. Our military is doing a good job there but I do not believe it is yet safe enough for a large number of civilians except for specialists who support the pacification and reconstruction process. It is still a war zone and the work should be done by military personnel.

Of course there are neighborhoods in Detroit whose violence would give most of Iraq a run for its money. Asked about fear of violence, one Detroiter, Marceilos Davis, 27, of Detroit said, “That’s a no-brainer. From the neighborhood I live in, it’s no different than Iraq. I’m not scared.”

Still, it shines the light on our states mighty economic engine.

I'd rather take a job setting up a factory in China for Ford or Delphi. I spend lots of time at the airport who, much like myself, fly somewhere else to perform their jobs. I would consider going to Iraq, but heck, why not just go to Wyoming or something. If I did go to Iraq, I would expect to make a hell of a lot more than $200,000. Better be tax free, too.

I would like you to start researching what former Zionist Ben Freedman said in his speech back in 1961. I would also like you to ask yourself isn't it a coincidence that most of the Zionist-Christian leadership in America also happen to have HUGE stocks in defense weapons companies while they push for their fake end-time wars to continue??
You wont research this though because it doesn't fit into your belief system...
