Why the US economy fell off the cliff

John Doe started the day early having set his alarm clock (made in Japan) for 6 am.

while his coffeepot (made in China) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (made in Hong Kong), put on a dress shirt (made in Sri Lanka), designer jeans (made in Singapore) and tennis shoes (made in South Korea).

after eating breakfast cooked in his new electric skillet (made in India), he sat down with his calculator (made in Mexico) to see how much he could spend today.

he got in his car (made in Germany). set his watch (made in Taiwan) to the radio (made in India), filled it with gas (from Saudi Arabia) and continued his search for a good paying American job.

at the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day, john got back home, checked his computer (made in Malaysia) and decided to relax for a while.

he put on his sandals (made in Brazil), poured himself a glass of wine (made in France) and turned on the TV (made in Indonesia) and then wondered why he couldn't find a good paying job in America.

and now he's hoping he can get help from a President made in Kenya.
