Creative quotes are quite inspiring

Indeed – Creativity is so much more than being a musician, artist, dancer, singer, writer etc. It’s as humble as finding various ways to clean your office space, or being more efficient in the way you compile your data…. or even being creative in the way you show your appreciation to your boss for employing you (AND vice versa from the boss to the employee!!).

Whilst I am a marketer, the majority of my tasks as administrative. Bland some would say, but I inject my creativity in the way I write my social media posts, the way I structure the office, the way I dress, the attitude I exhibit on a daily basis, the formatting & colour schemes I use to create my work documents……. I encourage others to tap into their own creativity and inject it into the ‘blandest’ of tasks. Working from this standpoint makes the day go a lot quicker (!!) and creates a sense of fulfilment and joy. After all, it’s where we spend the majority of our time. :)

By the way, I deeply resonate with the information under the ‘Fight Against Conformity’ and ‘Take Responsibility’. This article is absolute GOLD.

What drives US manufacturer return back to its country

In my opinion, cost is driving the decision process. If U. S. manfacturing is cheaper that foreign manufacturing PLUS the difference in shipping, the U. S. is chosen. But this decision has no loyalty. There is no permanence. This is why nations tariff. It protects domestic jobs and production from being outsourced. With the U. S. allowing manufacturing to go where wages, safety rules, environmental requirements, etc. are the cheapest, the U. S. has trouble competing. This is why NAFTA was bad. What is next? TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) It has been called “NAFTA on steroids”.

The U. S. created a lot of innovations. I believe that the U. S. does not manufacture televisions, computer memory, hard drives, even iPhones. Most American flags are made in other countries. 50 years ago, the top employers was GM and their workers made cars. Today, the top U. S. employer is Walmart. The company fights raising the minimum wage and the 6 Waltons are half of the top dozen wealthiest people in the U. S.  Apple has a huge amount of cash. It is overseas to evade taxation. Their manufacturing is done where it is cheapest.

The US does not have to be the cheapest, but have to create the most sustainable product and services. History showed that every country which started with cheap manufacturing eventually had rising wages and was getting higher standards of living. If you can deliver products that can be trusted and are durable (which most products where fifty years ago), I think you can also become a leading manufacturing country again.

Climate change is code word for taking our diminished wealth

Obama is ready to begin- this week’s EPA pronouncements- transferring what wealth remains in the USA to the world. Climate change is code word for taking our diminished wealth and giving to their pals. 30,000 global scientists have been recently on record as calling all of this as contrived facts- lies- to fit their fiction. Nothing claimed can be scientifically proven…. oh wait! Scientists funded by governments are agreeing to these lies- or lose their funding- so the lines really do blur. Maybe people should begin thinking for themselves.

Of course, the climate change reports are ‘the word of God’ and are completely free of error, uncertainty, or self-interested promotion. In the meantime, people discover organisms floating around in the ocean that absorb huge amounts of CO2 out of seawater, and other researchers find out that ‘global warming’ is very uneven – a lot near the arctic circle and none at all in other areas.  The geological record is very clear about climate catastrophe. Mass extinctions appear to be the result of huge releases of volcanic gasses including CO2, H2S, and others. Since H2S is a poison, it tends to wipe out ecosystems in days or weeks instead of years. The levels of CO2 at that time were on the order of 1400 ppm, rather than the 400 ppm we have just recently crossed.  When people get this mixed up with other agendas, such as hostility to free enterprise economies, it’s hard to tell where concern for the environment ends and the push for absolutist political regimes begins.
