Made in the USA

I received this in an email and found it very interesting
so I'm passing it on.  I will definitely start checking
from here on out.
Made  in the USA -  Very Encouraging 

                           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.
Subject:  Made in the USA  - Very Encouraging
Unfortunately  our politicians and top CEO's 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?  This information came from the a report by  Diane Sawyer.Hopefully this has changed or will soon!!  

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.

One Light Bulb at  a Time..

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."  I don't buy it  anymore.

My favorite toothpaste Colgate is made in 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  that that 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???
