    Fabrication? What's that? If it can't be mass manufactured out of plastic in China, no sense making it. Are you suggesting we start welding stuff together or something, like its the dark ages? What's next, riding around on horses and having a milkman deliver to your doorstep every morning?

    The idea of testifying to congress (with any consequences) is questionable IMO.

    Good luck,

    OK. Who did trump testify to under oath? I'll wait. He won't testify under oath to anyone because he is such a pathological liar that he'd be setting himself up for perjury charges and even his advisors admit that.

    Maybe in your world but the term journeyman came from people leaving one job and getting another one, usually for better pay. This is what I was told when I was a young apprentice from old journeymen who would likely be in the 100 year old range now if they were still alive. You probably have experience with changing jobs for being dead weight though.

    Funny how it was fine with the trumpers when trump gave away the same or more money to businesses but when Democrats give money to the people the trumpers lose their chit.

    Journeymen do not work 4-5 jobs in one year. There is a reason they work so many jobs in such a short time frame yet I doubt you will ever figure this out.
    As for your last remark I would be willing to bet you have collected unemployment several time over the last couple years.

    Who said that journeymen changed jobs 4 or 5 times a year? I didn't. As to collecting unemployment, I haven't collected a dime of it in the last 20 years and have only collected a couple of times for a week or two at a time in the last 45 years.

    I think the journeyman tradition was Germanic - or at least it is still practiced by them?

    They actually work more than that! There's been a couple in the immediate area from Europe a couple of years ago, local rag had them in their traditional dress. Work seemed to be preferred on a daily or weekly basis, they had a requirement to travel for the set number of years before they could reach master craftsman status.
