This 4th of July weekend buy USA products ONLY

Posted on 06/27/2005 7:40:45 AM PDT by Sun

I bet you can do it for those three days at least.

Let's show the manufacturers what we can do if we want to. Let's send them a message that we want USA products and jobs in the USA.

Let's hear it for independence on Independence Day.

Shouldn't we be doing that all the time? I prefer the american made products over anything else for many reasons.

Interesting list:

Footwear
New Balance

Not according to my shoes.

If I buy a US made Toyota or Honda over the weekend, does that count?

Yes, we should, but some folks don't, so I'm hoping to reach them on this Patriotic weekend.

I have to say that some of the brands listed -- I've never heard of. Wonder how many are actually available in my neck of the woods.

Still, it's good to have a list. One of the problems I've always had is that sometimes Made in the U.S.A. on some products is not actually correct. I guess there is some broad interpretation of that term in some quarters. Sometimes the items are made in the U.S., but of materials from overseas. Or some are made from U.S. materials, but are actually manufactured overseas. And there have been more than a few manufacturers who have lied about where their products are made.

But anyway, thanks for the post.

Some of the manufacturers on the list make BOTH USA products and foreign products.

No, I was being sarcastic. I don't think there are any USA brands of common fireworks, excluding the custom big show stuff......

Sometimes it's easier to get USA products if you order by mail.

Maybe reading this article by Bill Gertz will give us the incentive to AT LEAST not buy Chinese products.

Here's a few snippets:

Chinese dragon awakens
By Bill Gertz
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
June 26, 2005
Part I

China is building its military forces faster than U.S. intelligence and military analysts expected, prompting fears that Beijing will attack Taiwan in the next two years, according to Pentagon officials.

China's economy has been growing at a rate of at least 10 percent for each of the past 10 years, providing the country's military with the needed funds for modernization.

For Pentagon officials, alarm bells have been going off for the past two years as China's military began rapidly building and buying new troop- and weapon-carrying ships and submarines.

Read the whole article; it's not that long.

"Hey, I used your link ;)"

WTG. It is provided by a conservative, patriotic talk show host, Andrew Wilcow. He has a show on NYC's WABC on Sunday mornings, and Albany's WGY, M-F 9 - noon. You can listen to him online.

If you like the link, you can give him a call and thank him.

"I always do my best to take care of the American worker."

We Americans have got to start sticking together.

I know if we need a computer part, it's impossible to buy products NOT made in China. So we do the best we can.

We need to call our congresscritters, and maybe even tell them about the Bill Gertz article.

Buying Chinese products is fueling Chinese military build-up which they will use against us.

It's the unions, particularly the UAW, that have crippled US manufacturing and provided the incentive to move manufacturing to places like China.

The UAW is the reason GM and Ford are about to implode.

My Daniel Cremieux ties all say made in the USA (despite the french sounding name). If you got to wear a #$%@ tie, might as well wear the best ties you can buy. I give them as gifts to foreign business guests.

I don't disagree with you about unions.

My dad was a shop steward, and even he says unions are too strong these days.

The link I provided has many, many businesses and many don't even HAVE unions.

Also, I LOVE the Chevy Malibu that I purchased last summer; got a good deal on it.

Why? After the way our supreme court has been screwing us over, maybe I should retaliate by buying only foreign made stuff. Just joking of course, I shouldn't penalize the manufacturers and retailers for idiotic decisions from our government.

"""How is the weather in Beijing this afternoon?"""

I don't know and I don't care.

The only weather report that interests me outside of where I live is Chicago's. And I always guess what it's like there before Aaron Brown tells us at 7:59 pm.

Never guessed right yet, but today I DO feel lucky.

And my guess is ..... wilting.

Wanna bet?

Dear kphockey2,
Ya know, you can make yer own firecrackers! All ya need is sulphur, salt peter, and some fine charcoal. Mix 'em together in a jar or tin can, seal it up with wax and a fuse, light it and yer all set!

Yours truly,
Lefty
