    Bringing the Work Back To The US

    It's an ill wind that blows no good, and there is a positive aspect to the Woo Hoo Floo. tht positive aspect is that American in wide swath know we need to bring our supply chains back to America. That has been amplified by the transportation foul-ups at our container ports. That and the fact that stupidity in China has cut off a lot of the stuff we used to buy from China.

    Although I have commented on it, many on this board don't realize the fury at which America has been moving to re-shore a lot of the things we use. Semiconductors and pharmaceutial may be leading the charge, but less technical things such as textiles are coming back strong. Here is a link discussing re-invigoration of US production of cotton textiles.



    Half and hour. Tough it out, there is a lot being said here. What is remarkable is the bipartisan support for moving jobs back to America.

    There is more. The US will become stronger and stronger in cotton textiles because the US has lots of water. three competing regions ar dying in the cotton trade. Xianziang province in China is dying up and no amput of slave labor will make upfor the fact tht cotton needs lots of water. The area around the Aral Sea likewise is drying out thanks to Soviet and Russia mismanagement. One premier cotton producer in real trouble is Egypt. the Renaissance Dam in Ethiopia will drastically curtail waterflow down the Blue Nile and Egyptian cotton fields will dry up and blow away. But it still rains a lot in the southern US (most years). Places like Missisippi and Alabama have two cotton growing seasons. American wins and foreigners lose out.

    I am surrounded by cotton fields. I have no idea where the cotton goes, but they sure do leave a whole bunch on the side of the road as the bales shed on their way north of here.

    I have noticed changes in the harvest process. I am not sure what is driving the changes. In the past, the cotton was stacked in a pallet fashion. Think of a rectangular bale, 6 feet tall, 6 feet wide, and about 12 feet long. They looked like huge snow blocks sitting in the fields. But new this year, they are in large round bales, like hay bales, bigger than the hay bales, or as big as the biggest, at least, with a plastic wrap.

    My guess is that the round bales are easier to handle with the same spear type loaders used for hay. Less specialized equipment. Also, the baling machines probably are similar in design to hay balers, but appear to be integrated into the harvesters. There is some innovation happening in the farming industry, so hopefully that is a result of processing coming back home to America.

    The John Deere machine making round bales ... 11 and a half minutes ...

    This is the older method. You can compare to the round bales. Big improvement. (5 minutes)

    And here is the square baler. I have seen this integrated into a single machine, but again, the round baler looks to be a simpler deal and easier to handle. (under 3 minutes)

    Bring teaching work ethic back to parents and schools. All else is moot unless you do that.

    Cotton really likes hot dry weather. It only needs watering four to six times during it's growth cycle at most.

    We still grow a hell of a lot of cotton in Texas and the best quality cotton of course comes from where it is hottest and driest which is why Egyptian cotton is considered to be the best in the world.

    Raising cotton is not like raising corn or soybeans with respect to water and just a little too much water causes cotton root rot and other fungal diseases that will wipe out an entire crop.

    Work ethic and trade skills. Not every kid is made for college and people working in the trades can make a very comfortable middle class living.

    The cherry on top of this good trend is that about 50K snowflake tech workers that do more yoga at work than actual WORK, are getting booted out the door this quarter.

    I hoped they saved those bloated salaries, because Big Crypto is not hiring...

    This will put some hemlock into the "All we need is Tech" bullshit inundating the Edu establishment.

    It would be much easier if we could get government out of the way.
    Still re-shoring is underway. Construction spending is an appreciable component of inflation. Tried to buy any iron pipe lately?

    Egypt is NOT dry. It has the Nile River - for now. Egypt is not rainy. Watch Egypt's cotton output plummet when Ethiopia gets the Renaissance Dam reservoir filled to where they can throttle down the flow of the Blue Nile. Egypt's cotton production will look like Xinxiang province or the Aral Sea region. But Mississippi and Bammer will produce beaucoup cotton.

    As I recall, East Texas is on the Gulf Coast where it rains like crazy.
