Since Wayne is at home, busy with the baby, I'm posting this (until he can actually get on here to blog). It really hit home with me this morning (my evil Gemini is in control today). I'm a little disappointed to not see more comments on Wayne's FaceBook page regarding this, but HOPEFULLY most of his people are at work, or don't access the net until later in the day. It's VERY valid, and a really good topic for discussion!
Wayne's words: "Does anybody buy American made products anymore? Is there such a thing as American made anymore? The real question is does anybody care about where our stuff comes from? If I have an apple tree in my yard, I won't be buying apples from another country when I want to bake a pie."
I remember, back only 3 or 4 years ago, vowing to buy ONLY American made products! BOY, was I shocked to learn that most "normal" stores (ie. Wal-Mart/Target) sell very little "Made in the USA" products. Yes, granted, they are hard to find...it's very disappointing to know that an "ALL AMERICAN" store doesn't sell US made products! (or at least MORE of them)
So, I'm doing it again....If I have to BUY EVERYTHING off the net, I am only buying locally-grown, organic produce (and hopefully meats), and ALL things USA (as much as I possibly can)! It's the ONLY way our economy is truly going to recover, and unemployment will diminish!
I challenge you to do the same!
