[quote:Anonymous Coward 19333122:MV8yMDU3NDE1XzM0NjA2MjcxXzUyQjlCMzNG] [quote:Anonymous Coward 28089936:MV8yMDU3NDE1XzM0NjAwNzUyX0RBMjYxRDMw] [quote:Anonymous Coward 2549094:MV8yMDU3NDE1XzM0NTk5NDY5XzkyMTM3Njc3] I try to buy from as many small businesses and farming coops as possible but I try to never to buy from anywhere that is unionized. [/quote] I'm old. Very old. I remember when [i]any[/i] 40 hour a week job, no matter how menial, bought a single person their own decent, modest digs, providing money for food, running a vehicle, with money left over... without the need for roommates. That was because the Union wages translated across the society to provide that. Reagan came in and gutted the unions. They crawled into bed with corporagov for survival and it has been a continually bad saga of destruction of the middle class and downsizing of quality of life ever since. I'm amazed at how many have accepted their brainwashing, espousing philosophies that work against their own best interests. Case in point.... Twinkies. I posted this in a thread on Twinkies. Read... and learn: "There will be Twinkies. It's a corporate shell game. Bankruptcy, dissolve, "sell," and come up again under a different moniker. Throw the thing up under one name with the left hand, it comes down in the right hand under a different name and Twinkies will still be produced. It's been a common enough ploy since the early 80s in the U.S. It's all about making sure that workers lose traction, monies, benefits, and have a continually shrinking quality of life. If you haven't been paying much attention and seen this happen before, watch this one. You'll learn a bit." At this point I don't expect people who never lived the freedom of movement and choice that I had when there was a closed lock loop that prevented manufacturing being set up outside the country. There was always the cheap labor to be had. The change came when CorporaGov changed the rules. You're all living the hell that has created. The very, very sad thing is... so many of you have been so mind-fucked you espouse the thoughts of others that have been planted for your own destruction. Sad bunch of Mofos. There's a part of me that says.... you really do deserve what is coming to you in the U.S. for so loving the lie. [/quote] If you REALLY, believe this, then it sucks to be you. [/quote]
This is the time of the year when Americans run out to their favorite retail stores and fill up their shopping carts with lots of cheap plastic crap made by workers in foreign countries where it is legal to pay slave labor wages. By doing this, the American people are actively participating in the destruction of the U.S. economy. You see, buying products that are made in America is not just a matter of national pride.
It is a matter of national survival....
The following are 55 reasons why you should buy products that are made in America this holiday season…
1. When you buy products that are made in America you support American workers.
2. When you buy products that are made in America you support companies that are doing business in America.
3. In 2000, there were more than 17 million Americans working in manufacturing, but now there are less than 12 million.
4. The United States has a trade imbalance that is more than 7 times larger than any other nation on earth has.
5. Our trade deficit with China in 2011 was $295.5 billion. That was the largest trade deficit that one country has had with another country in the history of the planet.
6. In 2011, our trade deficit with China was 28 times larger than it was back in 1990 and more than 49,000 times larger than it was back in 1985.
