FACTIOD: There are only .3 Billion Americans vs. 6.4 Billion Metric Users
It is absolutely unbelievable that the Greatest Industrial Country and the Greatest Military Power in the World, the UNITED STATES, is so slow to rid of the English Measurement System. The time has come, it did it's job, now is the time to say good-bye to the antiquated system and embrace the International System of Units, the Metric System.
Excuse me, but who is the one the pushed for a 'World Free Trade', but refuses to use a world wide measurement system? The Overpaid American CEOs are cutting labor cost every possible way, reduce pay, layoffs, oversea labor but, they refuse to convert to using only the Metric System. It does not make sense, does it. American workers are forced to purchase two different sets of tools in order to work and businesses are forced to purchase and keep in inventory two sets of hardware, all the while the competing countries/companies only need to have one set of tools/hardware. Now is that an American competitive edge? That does not say much for the CEOs of American companies.
Why is America losing in the education of math, science, and engineering with it's own citizens? Tell President Obama, that he is the man to bring America to the Twenty-first Century. Use Metric Now.
*BUSINESS ALERT - Europe will only purchase items that are Metric Only labled...

[Lord It's Hard To Be Happy When You're Not Using] The Metric System
It is pretty embarrassing that the Greatest Economic Power and Greatest Military Power in the World refuses to embrace the Metric System. How can the US possibly want to be part of the 'World Free Trade Market' and yet will not use the World Measurement System, SI?
President Obama I am writing to you to ask that you pass a Presidential Order to have America stop all use of the Imperial/English Measurement System immediately and exclusively use the Metric System. The Metric System is already an legal and recognized system in the US of America. Any further delay will put America in more economic disadvantage to both American citizens and businesses.
There are only .3 Billion Americans vs. 6.4 Billion Metric Users.
President Obama are you, the man, up to the task to bring America into the Twenty-First Century? Please spend some of that Recovery/Stimulus money for the final switch over to Metric and bring up America to the same level as rest of the World.
