What Manufacturing Collapse?

Hit this link's a real level setter.

It reminds me of people screaming about defense spending. We could cut it in HALF and still dominate the world. We could cut it by a factor of TEN and still annihilate any one country on the planet.

Looks like our manufacturing sector is just fine. It aint what it used to be...and we can look at the trend line and worry if we want...but seeing that we're still number one with a bullet against the 2nd and 3rd place COMBINED....well that's just not what you've been trained to think.

Real Question: Whose interests does it serve to have us think this? Who is plucking our nationalist heart strings here? Is the tool there and it just gets used by whoever needs it over the years? Right? Left?
