- Jun 30, 2011Andrea I agree with you and this is indeed a provocative and thorny issue. I am against sweat shops and yet we all profit from them when we buy "sale" goods.

Subject: Re: [hreg] Re: Ponder thisBuying locally made is a nice idea and all, but there's a global balance, and when you have the US taking raw materials from other countries, refusing to allow substantial immigration from those same countries, and then refusing to buy any finished products from those countries, you have created a powder keg.I'm sure that's way more political than this group expects, but just my 5 cents.I'm personally for keeping trade and immigration to the minimums necessary and "fair." Best is for local areas to be as self-sufficient as possible. That is not what we have.

Date: Tuesday, June 28, 2011, 4:59 PMYes it is great! They have a several websites with merchandise all made in the USA. Not all sustainable but at least made here. Some of the stories not a success as they document the companies that go down trying to compete with over seas. So not all happy stories....Amish furniture now looks modern if you want something more modern, etc. Very cool! Thanks for sharing, Evelyn

Tue Jun 28, 2011 4:14 am (PDT)Greetings,
While this specifies Canada at the end, it should read North America. I
thank my brother for sending me this one, it makes it's point rather well.
The need to buy local is real, it is hurting all of us. Yes, it may
cost more initially, but in the long run, it is the cheaper alternative.

AIN'T IT THE TRUTH!!?
Joe Smith started the day early having set his
(MADE IN JAPAN )for 6am.
While his coffeepot
(MADE IN CHINA )
was perking, he shaved with his
(MADE IN HONG KONG ).
He put on a
(MADE IN SRI LANKA ),
(MADE IN SINGAPORE )
(MADE IN KOREA )
After cooking his breakfast in his new
(MADE IN INDIA )
he sat down with his
(MADE IN MEXICO )
to see how much he could spend today. After setting his
(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 job.
At the end
of yet another discouraging
and fruitless day
(Made In Malaysia ),
Joe decided to relax for a while.
He put on his sandals
(MADE IN BRAZIL )
poured himself a glass of
(MADE IN FRANCE )
and turned on his
(MADE IN INDONESIA ),
and then wondered
why he can't find
a good paying job
Y'all gotta Keep this one circulating, please.!
