There is a shortage of qualified welders in this country. In other words, there are more welding jobs than there are welders. I am actually kind of glad to hear about this. Thirty years ago when I was still in welding school, I heard stories about the demand for welders being so great that there were actually neon signs advertising welding jobs. I also heard stories of welders making tons of money at welding jobs on the Alaskan pipeline and also on Nuclear plants that were under construction or on outage. Yep, there was plenty of demand for welders and the unions were even allowing welders who could pass a welding certification test to work on "permit". In other words they would "permit" you to have a welding job and make union wages until they had a union man to take your place. I honestly didn't even know what a union was but I did know I wanted to make more money.I took my first welding certification test in 1978 and worked as a boilermaker welder for $10.26 an hour.

In the words of a secret agent who has signed the Official Secrets Act in Britain we find the rationale for what government and supranational organizations have been involved in since Cleopatra, Christopher Marlowe and his own immediate predecessors Crowley and Ian Fleming. David Barrett tells us:"Although the policies of 'need-to-know' and 'compartmentalized knowledge' can sometimes cause more trouble than they're worth, there are very sensible reasons for them; there are many things which do require the highest levels of secrecy. If a careless word at an embassy cocktail party were to reveal how successful Britain was at intercepting and decrypting another country's communications, a simple change of cypher equipment or cypher key generator could throwaway years of painstaking work at GCHQ. Another careless word could cause the life of a long-term, well-established British agent abroad to be threatened, or at the very to be bust open.Lord George-Brown, a former Foreign Secretary … [Read more...] about Bilderbergs
There are many reasons why we should be harvesting our own raw materials that already exist in this country, rather than importing them, whenever it is feasible or possible. When there are reasons, which prevent us from doing the collecting of those natural resources within our own country, then and only then should we look towards our trading partners to supply us such raw materials and resources. When we can mine such raw materials within our borders and transport them short distances to the processing facilities, manufacturing factories, refineries, energy power plants and shipping ports or railroads for exporting at an expeditious and cost effective manner. In our country we have seen the loss of most of our mining in the last 40 years. Some was due to Federal Clean Water Act in 1972, which was to prevent the pollution from things like strip mining.Many other mines, drilling rigs and plants were closed due to the cost. This was often due to the World market price for the minerals … [Read more...] about The Flow of Natural Resources and Raw Materials
For the last quarter of 2006 United States Army bases stateside face a funding deficit of $530 million while troops active in Iraq and Afghanistan will not see the promised replacement levels of military equipment previously committed. Additionally, payroll for active-duty troops is short $1.4 billion while the Army Reserve and National Guard face a $500 million deficiency.The Installation Management Agency is responsible for overseeing the funding for 117 Army posts in the U.S., Europe and Asia. Garrisons of the posts administer the services the post receives such as mail delivery, garbage removal and firefighting while contracting services for dining halls and grounds maintenance. In order for many services to be provided, both temporary and term personnel are sub-contracted by the garrisons. However, in early June 2006, Installation Commander, Col. Kenneth O. McCreedy, mandated major cuts in services on all Army bases at least until September 30, 2006, when the 2006 fiscal year … [Read more...] about U.S. Military Suffers Equipment & Base Shortfalls
