The following was sent to me by my Aunt Jean.

There is a lot of truth in this email. If we stop buying from over sea companies we might have jobs here in the USA. I'm all for it.
May God send his angels to hold you in his arms
My Family is in too, thanks Bummer Knees
Life is like the ocean, it can be calm one minute and the next a wave will knock you off your feet, it's up to you to get back up and take control.
I Try and Check, but I'll Admit not Always! I'm going to try Harder to Buy Only American. I am the Type that I only go to Walmart if Forced to because of Price and My Bank Balance. Last Year EVERY Christmas Gift was from K-Mart, except for a Computer Chair from Staples!! I Agree Totally and will Try Harder!!Wink
When I called to purchase Daves Christmas present a jacket from LL Bean, I asked the man I was speaking to if it was made in the US. After he checked he said the material was made in the US, but it was assembled in Vietnam. Even Woolrich doesn't have any US made products any longer. I try to buy US, but sometimes you just can't find what you are looking for made here.
I shop at Aldi for alot of food things. Imagine to my surprise when my oldest son told me that the sliced mushrooms were made in China. China, the lovely country that has shipped us so many toxic things lately.
So I went through all of my other things from Aldi, all the rest were made in the U.S.
Care for this country, try to buy Made in the U.S.A. , same for vehicles. Sure some of the foreign cars are now made here but where does the main interest go? Not here that's for sure.

have always done my best to buy american even if I had to pay more.....I got a email once that said for every forein car we buy we took work from 20 americans....we as amweicans have to start standing up for Americans and that means buying american....Shaelynn is our checker....you can hear her several asiles away going "nope made in China"
........I love cats, I just cant eat a whole one by myself......
