    "AIN'T" IT THE TRUTH!!!


    Joe Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN ) for 6am. While his coffeepot ( MADE IN CHINA ) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor ( MADE IN HONG KONG ). He put on a dress shirt ( MADE IN SRI LANKA ), designer jeans ( MADE IN SINGAPORE ) and tennis shoes ( MADE IN KOREA ). After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet ( MADE IN INDIA ) he sat down with his calculator ( MADE IN MEXICO ) to see how much he could spend today. After setting his watch ( MADE IN TAIWAN ) to the radio ( MADE IN INDIA ) he got in his car ( MADE IN GERMANY ) filled it with GAS from Saudi Arabia and continued his search for a good paying AMERICAN J O B . At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day checking his Computer (Made In Malaysia ), Joe decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals ( MADE IN BRAZIL ) poured himself a glass of wine ( MADE IN FRANCE ) and turned on his TV ( MADE IN INDONESIA ), and then wondered why he can't find a good paying job in A M E R I C A ......

    I'm as guilty as anyone for buying the stuff though. I was up there to V.C. the other day arch, and decided January would be a good month to do some shopping, as the shop owners would be hungry for a sale. Well, the guy that owns the Red Garter was. I got a $170 Serratelli hat, Itallian name but made in America, for $125, and a $400 Skully coat for $300. The coat has indian beads and fringe, and is basically designed after the American frontier mountain man. I was CERTAIN in was made in America. I looked... and it say's "Made in China". I still like it, but I almost shit.

    we are all guilty...not by choice mind ya but by design...the same products you received a discount price on could have had the same pricing even if made in America was on the label...Big business is ripping all of us off...They outsource the products for a lower wage but keep the pricing the same...end of story...for now..maybe we all will wake up before it is too late...!

    I agree entirely. Something like this coat could have been made right here in America for the same price. Maybe even cheaper after you figure in the shipping costs for materials to go over seas, and then sent back as the finished product. Hell... I thought that's why all those illegal mexicans were here... :rolleyes:

    the illegal Mexicans are here for the service jobs the middle class was offered in exchange for the loss of the High Tech & production ones outsourced ...I suppose we all will be on social welfare sooner than we think! Unless we all revolt and say enough is enough to big business!

    Hey! I like my stuff made by the sweat of people and children being paid much less than the American made products ;-;

    I agree, outsourcing is a very, very bad thing. It's gonna be the reason my dad would ever lose his job (he works in a textile mill)

    you have something to say other than how you prefer your orgasim! Why not fight the good fight about our countries being delegated to a third world country status rather than superficial sexual desire you so diligently defend?
    This is the problem with both the DNC and now the GOP...IMO

    I do fight the good fight. My life does not revolved around my sexuality. And I defend my sexuality because I feel that I have to.

    you have no need to defend your preferred orgasim...just keep it out of public view and in the bedroom where it belongs...we the people are really becomming tired of this nonsense...stay on track and if you must keep your fetish....at least keep it between you and another concenting adult in the privacy of your bedroom...end of story! :rolleyes:
