economics 101……………

Howdy all

I dont really have anything prepared to blog about so its song time…..i listened to bob dylans infidels cd over the weekend which ive not done for a long time and this one has stuck in my head………..it dont only apply to the USA. 

 Well, my shoes, they come from Singapore

 My flashlights from Taiwan

My tablecloths from Malaysia

 My belt buckles from the Amazon

You know, this shirt I wear comes from the Philippines

 And the car I drive is a Chevrolet

 It was put together down in Argentina

 By a guy makin’ thirty cents a day

 
Well, it’s sundown on the union

And what’s made in the U.S.A

 Sure was a good idea

 Till greed got in the way

Well, this silk dress is from Hong Kong

 And the pearls are from Japan

Well, the dog collars from India

And the flower pots from Pakistan

All the furniture, it says “Made in Brazil”

 Where a woman, she slaved for sure

Bringin’ home thirty cents a day to a family of twelve

 You know, that’s a lot of money to her

Well, it’s sundown on the union

 And what’s made in the U.S.A

Sure was a good idea

 Till greed got in the way

Well, you know, lots of people complainin’ that there is no work

 I say, Why you say that for When nothin’ you got is U.S.-made?

They don’t make nothin’ here no more
You know, capitalism is above the law

It say, “It don’t count less it sells.

” When it costs too much to build it at home

You just build it cheaper someplace else
Well, it’s sundown on the union

And what’s made in the U.S.A

Sure was a good idea

 Till greed got in the way

 
Well, the job that you used to have

 They gave it to somebody down in El Salvador

The unions are big business, friend

And they’re goin’ out like a dinosaur

They used to grow food in Kansas

 Now they want to grow it on the moon

and eat it raw

 I can see the day coming when even your home garden

 Is gonna be against the law

Well, it’s sundown on the union

And what’s made in the U.S.A

 Sure was a good idea

Till greed got in the way

 
Democracy don’t rule the world

 You’d better get that in your head

 This world is ruled by violence

 But I guess that’s better left unsaid

 
From Broadway to the milky way

That’s a lot of territory indeed

 And a man’s gonna do what he has to do

When he’s got a hungry mouth to feed

Well, it’s sundown on the union

And what’s made in the U.S.A

 Sure was a good idea

Till greed got in the way ……………………………………………BOB DYLAN

Have a greatday all
