Make in America

In his speech to congress, when talking about energy, President Barack Obama said:

New plug-in hybrids roll off our assembly lines, but they will run on batteries made in Korea.

He meant that that’s a bad thing, that the U.S. should do it instead. Let’s assume for a minute that he’s not only talking about batteries. This is bad news for the ROK, whose economy depends on exports. That economy is now in the tank, with a bunch of suits trying just about everything these days to maintain sanity. In U.S. dollars, I now make $1,200 less per month than I did a year ago at this time. The won is in the crapper. This little comment can’t help me or the ROK.

Other than that, great speech prez!
