JACKASS ALERT # 10

Round and Round the Construction Firm

It is with great sadness that we must now report that there are apparently no qualified America Owned large Construction Engineering Companies in the United States capable of installing a ventilation system in the New York Subway Manhattan area. Due to the unreported demise of these firms, China State Construction Engineering Corp, the largest contractor in China, has been awarded the $100 million dollar contract through it’s subsidiary China Construction America Co .

The company is reported to have signed over 1 Billion dollars in construction projects in the United States this year alone – including the $410 million dollar Hamilton Bridge renovation project which began in July 2009

So let me attempt to understand this.

  • American taxpayers have had the “privilege” through TARP and Stimulus Packages to bailout the Federal Government
  • Who then borrowed on our backs trillions of dollars from China to  then
  • Award contracts to Chinese contracting firms
  • Denying American Engineering firms the opportunity to profit from the American taxpayer sacrifice.

This reminds me of a Chinese Proverb “The crafty rabbit has three different entrances to its lair.”

Unfortunately with the majority of our Industries outsourced, the inability of Republocrats to stand up for American Citizens, and the lack of any true leader in our Nation; it maybe time to learn Mandarin.

I hear Rosetta Stone has a sale going. Up to $125 off and free shipping

At least they are still American owned.
