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 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 cur iosity, 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 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
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 addressbook 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 .

What’s the source of the reduced performance? Retail sales, consumer spending, manufacturing and construction were all weaker than expected toward the end of the quarter.

If we buy less expensive domestic products, GDP falls.
:eek:

So in order to preserve jobs here, and our economy, we should buy less expensive and more domestic products.
So,
Buy in bulk and really screw up their numbers.

:rolleyes:
