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 CEOs 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’s 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 USA. 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 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 guessedit – 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???    
If you care about 
American workers, you will pass it on
