Remember the days when America was the more powerful country in the world? Where America companies were considered the premier company in whatever area of business they were in? When American's would outsource their jobs to other countries? These days are coming to a halt. Inbev, Belgiums largest beer producing company has agreed to purchase Anheuser-Busch, which happened to control almost 50% percent of total U.S. market shares of domestic beer sales. Just what does something like this say about our weakening country? To many people Budweiser stood as an American symbol. Many people feel that this would be the same thing as agreeing to sell the Statue of Liberty to Canada. Just the other day I found out that Indian conglomerate TaTa recently outsourced some of its jobs to Marietta's very own Reno. What did Tata set up? A calling center. The days of joking about calling Microsoft and talking to an Indian are fast approaching a close. Now Indians are joking about having to talk to Appalachian Americans for their problems. Let that sink in. It is now more expensive for India to hire their own native workers then it is for them to hire American workers. Scary huh?
