Lost jobs? Nothing has been “Lost”. We know exactly where our “Made in America” jobs are. They’re in China and India and the Middle East. They’re in the Philippines and Taiwan and Mexico and South America. They’ve been eliminated so that you can wait in line for twenty minutes at the store or on the phone trying desperately to talk to a human being at your bank. They’ve been eliminated so that one person is forced to do the work of four or five at minimum wage with zero benefits so that the executives can get obscene bonuses and laugh and laugh and laugh at you and your family’s woes.
So nothing has been “lost”, they’ve just been moved to where you can’t get to them and eliminated to the point of starvation and foreclosure and to countries where you could never live on the wages that they pay if you lived in a box behind the same Wal-Mart that sells the crap you would be making.
Like George Carlin said, the rich control EVERYTHING and they don’t gives a rat’s ass about you or your family or your futures. You are just stupid little pawns to be moved from place to place and who can be hired and fired and replaced in minutes.
So why, exactly, do you spend even one cent at places like Wal-Mart? Why are you supporting the very actions that are hurting you the most? Is it because you need the leadership of fat, drug addled half wits or criminals that own the vast majority of media in this nation and wants you to suffer as much as necessary in order to benefit themselves and their wealthy friends? Are you among those drooling, mindless minions who slavishly repeat the right’s insane slogan of “it’s all a left wing conspiracy” while the right wing rolls on the floor laughing at exactly stupid you really are?
Well, at least there are still ways to fight back. There are still many, many products made right here in America that you can easily find and purchase. In fact, I’ll make it easy for you by providing a list of ways to find those companies.
First, here’s some thoughts about where what little money you have right now goes every single day.
• If you spend money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China .
• If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.
• If you purchase a computer, it will go to India .
• If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala
• If you buy a car, it will go to Japan .
• If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan .
• If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.
• If you pay for wars by printing more paper money it will devalue your assets, cause blowback or death to your kids.
So, as a solution, here are a few links that you can use to be certain that what you buy is made in America by Americans, money that pays for our schools and highways and all the other services that money spent at Wal-Mart does not provide America.
First, a great search engine from MadeInUsa.Org . Here you’ll find a search engine that will show you hundreds of shops and manufacturers who produce their wares right here where we need it. They have a huge collection of sites and I highly recommend it whenever you need to buy anything online for yourself or as a gift.
Another great place for links to American made products is at AmericansWorking.com.
Another site with links to hundreds of manufactures in America is Still Made in America.
So, while there are tons of places to spend what little you have that will benefit your friends and neighbors and fellow American workers, there are other ways to spend your money to keep it local
Instead, keep the money in America and buy american by:
1. spending it at yard sales, or
2. going to ball games, or
3. spending it on prostitutes, or
4. spending it on locally grown marijuana or
5. domestic beer, or
6. locally grown produce or
(These often seem to be the the only American businesses still operating in the US but the above links prove otherwise.)
*** On a personal note, I’m going to go to get very stoned, eat a Georgia peach and go to a high school ball game with a tattooed prostitute that I met at a yard sale — we’re going to drink lots of domestic beer! Yay! See ya there!
