American Made

Ok, Below is an Email i got today.

I have been complaining about outsourcing for years now. I did not original write the info below the RED line. However, the info is good & just keep your eyes out and buy american. you could help your neighbor & you grand kids. in the process.  I hope all who reads this will pass this info on.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ACE HARDWARE - Made in the USA - Very Encouraging

READ ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM! LOTS OF GOOD INFO HERE!



Costco sells Goodyear wiper blades for almost half the price that you will pay
on the outside and they are made in the U.S.A.
Read and do the following..


Unfortunately our politicians and top CEO's (GE etc) have pushed for trade to China and
Mexico for years so Americans are now out of work. Did
You Know that there is no
electric coffee maker made in the US and that
The only kitchen appliances made in the US is
Viking?


I DIDN'T KNOW HALLMARK
CARDS WERE MADE IN CHINA ! That is also why I
don't buy cards at Hallmark anymore, They are
Made in China and are more expensive!
I buy them at Dollar Tree - 50 cents each and made in USA


I have
Been looking at the blenders available on the Internet.
Kitchen Aid is MADE IN
The US . Top of my list already...

Yesterday I was in Wal Mart looking for a
wastebasket. I found some made
in China for $6.99. I didn't want to pay that much so I asked
the lady if they had any others.
She took me to another department
And they had some at $2.50 made in USA . They are
Just as good. Same As a kitchen
rug I needed. I had to look, but I found some made in
the USA - what a concept! - and they were $3.00 cheaper.


We are being
brainwashed to believe that everything that comes from
China and Mexico is cheaper. Not so.

I was in
Lowe's the other day and just out of curiosity, I looked
At the hose attachments. They were all
made in China . The next day I was
In Ace Hardware and just for the heck of it I
checked the hose attachments there. They were made in USA ...


Start looking, people . . ...In our current
economic situation, every Little thing
We buy or do affects someone else - most often, their job.


My grandson likes Hershey's candy. I noticed, though, that it is
Now Marked "made in Mexico .."

My favorite toothpaste Colgate is made in Mexico ..
now I have switched to Crest.

You have to read the labels on everything.


This past weekend I was at Kroger . . . I needed
60W light bulbs and Bounce dryer sheets
I was in the light bulb aisle,
And right next to the GE brand I
Normally buy -- was an off-brand labeled,
"Everyday Value." I picked up both types of bulbs and
compared them: they were the same
except for the price . . .
the GE bulbs cost more than the Everyday Value
Brand, but the thing that surprised me the most was
the GE was Made in MEXICO
And the Everyday Value brand was made in - you guessed it.
the USA at a company in Cleveland , Ohio ..


It's way past time to start finding and buying products you use
Every Day that are made right here.


So, on to the next Aisle: Bounce Dryer Sheets... Yep, you guessed
it, Bounce cost more money and is made in Canada.
The Everyday Value Brand cost Less, and was MADE IN THE USA !
I did laundry yesterday AND the dryer sheets
performed just like the Bounce Free I have been
using for years, at almost half the price.


MY CHALLENGE TO YOU IS to start reading the labels
when you shop for everyday things and
see what you can find that is made in the USA.
The job you save may be your own or your neighbor's!


If you accept the challenge, pass this on to
OTHERS in your Address Book so we can
ALL start buying American, one light bulb at a time!


Stop buying from overseas companies - you're sending the jobs there.
(We should have awakened a decade ago....)
Let's get with the program and help our fellow Americans
keep their jobs and create more jobs here in the USA ..


I passed this on .. ... . will you???
If you care about American workers, you will pass it on.
