Manufacturing Is Coming Back to The US

They Took Our Jerbs

But no jobs will be created.

I have been telling people for a long time that manufacturing is coming back to The US, and most people are glad when i tell them, because they think that means more jobs, and good for america...

However, this is going to be a nightmare, and semantics is important.

The US ≠ America

Manufacturing is coming back to The US for several very important reasons.

  • Robots work just as cheaply in The US as in China
  • The US has the best property rights for corporations
  • We are at war with China, and it is just turned hot.

To have manufacturing in China, you build stuff at the whim of the CCP. But it was worth it when you could get really cheap labor without much strife. Unfortunately labor costs have been going up and protests too.

Thus, part of this plandemic was the "rah, rah, America" "Buy American" "We need to bring manufacturing back to America".

And we see over in China they have launched a nationwide campaign telling everyone that America unleashed the devastating virus.

It is all coming together to build "Silicon Valley II"
They even got some wild fires to burn down all the houses in the area that will become this new mecca of the oligarchs.

Don't be deluded. Manufacturing may be happening in The US, but employment will be going down. WAY down.

If you are not a robotics engineer, or a manufacturing engineer, or the like, you aren't going to find jobs anywhere.

Well, except for security for these facilities, and kitchen staff for these facilities, and _____ for these facilities.

"Made in America" will be hollow.
It might as well be built in another country with no connection to anywhere else. Just a place that drains resources from everyone.

Fortunately, almost immediately after they start this project, many Americans will start building their own manufacturing facilities. Robots work just as well in your garage or barn as they do over there.

Soon, it will be buy local, and you actually can.
And you can get parts local.
And most likely everything will be made to be repaired.

We are about to see great strides made in self sufficiency, but we are also going to see a huge gulf in the haves and the have-nots.

I would like to say we have a little time, but that's a falsehood.
What we have is what's left in the supply chain, and the sputtering of groups trying to restart the economy.

On the other hand this is the best time to get into small, local manufacturing. Automation and machining tools have become inexpensive and reliable. Everyone who wants can own a CNC mill. (i remember when having a digital readout was shit-hot new fangled stuff.)

Small manufacturing is only second to getting your own greenhouse and growing your own food. This is the time to take the source of your livelihood into your own hands.

I am not sure we are going to see jobs coming back here other than those that are vital like the manufacturing of vaccines and other safety equipment. I am surrounded by young college kids and outside of not throwing huge parties they seem rather unfazed by this whole virus thing. I think once it's all over with they will continue on buying product from China. You have to remember these indoctrinated young people are those most likely to believe in climate change and contribute it to human behavior but not enough to contribute it directly to themselves ordering product and having it shipped halfway across the globe to them, no that would be to financially inconvenient compared to implementing a small increment of a tax increase upon the shoulders of everyone to fund green new deal initiatives. We don't need green new deals all we need is to adjust our own behaviors, even at that there's no guarantee that climate change is a naturally occurring phenomenon that over time can be stopped, maybe slowed by a change in behaviors but not totally avoidable.

For them things will be fundamentally unchanged once the restrictions are lifted. They'll go about business as usual, pack restaurants, bars and continue to eat tofu while riding bikes and using public transportation building an infrastructure of people living stacked on top of each other....they are young feeling invulnerable, to them it's their world without regard to those whom they share it with, like the people that they themselves will one day become.

The future calls them the "lost generation"

They were programmed to believe a world that never existed, and never given the tools to understand reality and adapt.

Unfortunately for them, the ice-age is upon us, and we will see food shortages, floods and freezing.
So, they are about to run smack into reality... and still many won't learn

I want to buy a robot and have it work for me.

Well, you can. They are all over Alibaba.

However, most are just an arm, and you have to program each individual movement as if the robot had no awareness of where anything was. And the user interface leaves everything to the imagination.

But they already have mobile dust busters, like robotic vacuums that runs around on wheels picking up dirt.

I thought you were suggesting something like this, LINK

You can buy a 3d printer and then "manufacture" orders for your local market.

Materials and processes of 3D printers have come a long way.
They used to be called rapid prototyping because that was all they were really good for.

What i was referring to in this reply, are robotic arms that you often see welding cars together.
They do repetitive tasks where the job is exactly the same each time.

We have very poor robot software, and even poorer robot vision.
So, we usually make the world correspond to the robot.
As for example, resistors come on a paper tape much like we used for dot matrix printers. Not as a jumble of parts in a bin.

Thus, part of this plandemic was the "rah, rah, America" "Buy American" "We need to bring manufacturing back to America".

Yep.
