We have not bought or owned a vehicle made in another country since getting married 33 years ago. Am I proud of that. Yes because I still believe that the best products in the world were made here for years and still can be.
What got me to thinking about this domestic product thing was what we are all going through right now....a very trying economy. As small as it may seem if we all will concentrate on purchasing what few products are still manufactured here in the USA ......I do believe it would help a little with the job loss situation.
This afternoon I opened a box of fence staples . We are constructing an animal proof fence around our garden right now. As I was emptying the staples out of the box I noticed about every 5th one was deformed and abnormal. In other words TOTALLY USELESS!
Yep you guessed it. Made in another country and sold by a large retailer here in the USA. This kind of incident is true with so many of the products made in other countries these days.
Later in the afternoon I decided to take a break and go target shooting with my 22 rim fire. So I grabbed a new box of shells and went to the back 40.......and it happened again! Yep about ever 20th round was a dud! Just like a bad roll of Chinese firecrackers. I didn't even want to look at the box and see where these were manufactured. I can only imagine.
I just hope our men in uniform are not relying on products from other countries to defend this one.
Buy American Please!
