Services We Can’t Live Without

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

Today there was an article on the web on how manufacturing will probably not come back to the US and for that I have to say – nonsense. Companies can compete and manufacture here, they just have to have domestic markets to sell the goods to locally. We can’t do much until we get back to full employment and from the looks of things that may be several years away. In the meantime, if you are looking for “must have” services that will be needed you may want to check these services out as possible careers. Bear in mind that the economy has hit them too so expect cuts in these professions as well.

Medical Field – I think too many people are jumping into this already. I see so many people going into nursing and I predict a glut of nurses in five to ten years. People will keep getting sick and they will need places to get better. They will also need people to care for them.

Security – People will need police or security to keep them and their neighborhoods safe. Already gated communities have their own security forces though they stop short at carrying automatic weapons. Generally speaking, guards don’t make a lot of money.

Fire protection services – working in Fire Departments or anything to protect yourself from fires or deal with them looks to be a continuously growing business. It may be my imagination but I think with recent dry seasons in California and other places nationwide there is a need for firemen (budgets permitting) and fire prevention services.

Sanitation – People will be needing to have their garbage taken from them.  Literally.  Unless you are living in a farm and heavy into composting, worm farming and using things that can easily be broken down, you need somebody to haul your mess away from you.  The garbage business may be a dirty gig but it will continue to be around for a very long time.

Thanks for making my Curio & Relics book number #26 in the Firearms section, gang. Keep telling people about the book.

Be safe, healthy, wealthy and wise.

Manufacturing Is Needed In US Now

Monday, March 8th, 2010

I have been screaming to anybody who would listen for the last few years that we need to get manufacturing going in the US again.  Even if it is using computers, robots and minimal human intervention, we need to restore our manufacturing base here in the US. 

Granted, there are some businesses with heavy machinery and some aircraft that are made here but those tend to be few and they don’t employ as many people as we need to get working again.

People, you need to get your Congressional leaders going to start opening up funds to create work locally in the cities and states here in the country.  Unemployment is going to run out for people sooner and later and rather than the slow death of people running out of work and money, how about we start turning the beast that is our economy around now and start getting people employed.

More incentives for US citizens need to be employed and work that is in-shore and not off-shored.  Don’t get me wrong, I think internationally but for the long term survival of our nation we need to rebuild nationally.

Tax time is here and the season is over in about five or so weeks.  If there is anything you need worked on, I am still taking clients.

If you are interested in starting a manufacturing company, please drop me a line and let’s talk.

Thanks for your continued support for my Curio & Relics book.  It is going well and for all of you who are interested in more firearm books, please drop me a line because I am taking requests from my readers (since they are ultimately my audience and critics) of what you want me to publish next.

Be safe, sane and have a great time everybody.
