For some reason, this graphic made me more sad than knowing the actual numbers.....

I saw this graphic on this website where it is titled "Begger Man Sam"....and it is a depiction of Uncle Sam looking for a hand-out.

As silly as that sounds, it is sort of where we are today with our trade imbalance and with so many foreign countries owning our bonds / debt.

If we stop buying their goods....or stop exporting our own jobs, they will be asking for their IOUs back....and where will we be at thatp oint. (as a country) We will be out there with our tin cups asking for investors to buy our debt.

Oh what a tangled web we have woven. I pray we can turn this around before we become #2 economy....for at that point I fear it will be too late.

Its not just factory jobs being exported its skilled white collar jobs being exported. With a vengence may I add. Who says you cannot be replaced just because you have an MBA and a high skilled job.
