    Today is my first day so as advised I am introducing myself - my cause is to help stop reckless spending at home and inform Americans how shopping local and made in America helps - I know - it's been done before - I am bringing a new twist to it and attacking the issue in a new way. As far as big business fleeing America because they are trying to save themselves from government regulation and higher taxes - I say that they were built off the sweat of middle class Americans and they should remember that. AS far as waiting for change in Washington - are they even listening to us? The red tape is wound so tight up there it will be years before anyone can get anything done - so your only option is to fight with your checkbooks - bring jobs back with a change of your own personal spending habits - Join the cause - keep up with the blogs - we are organizing action soon -
    Thanks for your Time

    They’re leaving to maximize profit, it has nothing to do with regulation and taxes. If there were no regulation or taxes they’d still leave, unless you can find Americans to work for five dollars a month.

    Otherwise, welcome.

    I agree they are leaving to up their profit margin - I am looking at differents types of industries that American purchasing can make a vital difference in - we are in a global economy - can't fight that - but there should be more money recycling through our community to get us through until the trade balances out. Otherwise we are just going to get tapped out - opinions are always welcome and I love it when someone discusses options with me! Thank you so much for helping me think today - I am not always right - but I do have good intentions - so bare with me - Nice to meet you - You are my first comment! Thanks!

    The comment about Wal-Mart - funny - Now stop - lol 43% of your money is staying in your community as opposed to almost 80% with a local business - this pays for your schools, roads, local works, etc - the number can go higher if you seek out farmers markets and such - try a little ;-)
