Texas is steadily maintaining a sizable pool of job advertisements, with help from the Aerospace and Healthcare Industries, along with Oil & Gas. That’s despite the blocking of the last leg of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Trucks are carrying the oil and tar sands down from Canada and that has led to an increase in trucking jobs to just about 1,000,000 truck drivers needed in America. That is good news! These are permanent jobs, whereas the Pipeline jobs created would have lasted only a matter of several months, except for a handful of supervisors and engineers.
Texas is good news for business and workers also, because there is no state income tax, but plenty of business incentives offered. On top of that is the network available for people ages 55 and older to use free-of-charge for finding jobs, housing, and other opportunities.
The Keystone XL Pipeline has been branded the Black Snake, because of the sludgy, toxic, and corrosive bituminous contents it will carry if it is completed.
The tar sands to be transported in the pipe can be hazardous to human, animal, and plant health and the environment overall.
However, a 2014 federal report stated that the proposed Keystone XL northern leg from Montana through Nebraska would not harm the environment – but it is highly corrosive. The federal stance reminds me of the Sugar Council stance through the 1980s that sugar is not harmful.

When you take a look back at the Great Depression, piece by piece, from 1929 – 1941, a number of similarities and parallels show forth. Only World War II could produce the manufacturing and related industrial step-ups to ignite the American economy again.
People starved to death and transient workers died on the road across the American South and West – often straight across Route 66 to California, where archives tell the tale in screamingly dramatic black and white still shots. Ohio was a nother state particularly devasted in the Great Depression, was was New York and the Dust Bowl of Oklahoma and Texas.
Following the pertinent Time Line from Stock Market Crash to Pear Harbor infamy, war almost seemed planned for 1941, if not a big coincidence. It was fortunate that the US instituted the military draft the year before…
