    THE BOTTOM!

    LOTS OF GOOD INFO HERE!
     
     

    Costco

    sells Goodyear wiper blades for almost

    half the price that you will pay

    on the outside and they are made in

    the U.S.A. Read and do the following.
     
     
    Unfortunately, our    
    politicians and top CEOs have

    pushed for trade to China and Mexico

    for years so Americans are now out of

    work.
    Did You Know that there is no  
    electric coffee maker

    made in the US and that the only

    kitchen appliances made in the US is

    Viking? This information came from

    a report by Diane Sawyer. Hopefully, this has

    changed or will soon!!
     
    I DIDN’T KNOW HALLMARK    
    CARDS WERE MADE IN CHINA

    That’s why I don’t buy

    cards at Hallmark anymore, they are

    Made in China and are more expensive!

    I buy them at Dollar

    Tree – 50 cents each and made in USA
     
    I have been looking at  
    the blenders available on the

    Internet. Kitchen Aid

    is MADE IN THE USA. Top of my list

    already…
     
    Yesterday I was in  
    WWal-Mart looking for a

    wastebasket. I found some Made

    In China for $6.99. I didn’t want to

    pay that much so I asked the lady

    if they had any others. She took

    me to another department and they

    had some at $2.50 made in USA. They are

    just as good.. Same as a kitchen rug I

    needed. I had to look, but I found some Made in

    The USA – what a concept! – and they were $3.00

    cheaper.
     
    We are being  
    brainwashed to believe that everything that

    comes from China and Mexico is cheaper. Not so.

    I was in Lowe’s the  
    other day and just out of curiosity, I looked

    at the hose attachments. They were all

    Made in China. The next day I was in Ace Hardware and just for the heck of it I checked the hose

    attachments there. They were made in USA
     
    Start looking, people  
    . …In our current economic

    situation, every little thing we

    buy or do affects someone else – most often,

    their job.
     
    My grandson likes    
    Hershey’s candy. I noticed, though, that it is

    now marked “Made in Mexico.” I don’t buy it

    anymore.
     
    My favorite toothpaste  
    Colgate is made in Mexico …now I

    have switched to Crest.
     
    You must read    
    the labels on everything.

    This past weekend I was at Kroger. I needed

    60W light bulbs and Bounce dryer

    sheets. I was in the light bulb

    aisle, and right next to the GE

    brand I normally buy — was an

    off-brand labeled,

    “Everyday Value.” I picked up both types of

    bulbs and compared them: they were the same

    except for the price . .. .the GE bulbs

    cost more than the Everyday Value

    Brand, but the thing that surprised

    me the most was that that GE was

    Made in MEXICO and the Everyday

    Value brand was made in – you guessed

    it – the USA at a company in

    Cleveland, Ohio.
     
    It’s way past time to start  
    finding and buying products

    you use every

    day that are made right Here.
     
    So, on to the next    
    aisle: Bounce dryer sheets. Yep,

    you guessed it,
    Bounce cost more
    money and is made in Canada. The
    Everyday Value Brand cost less, and was MADE IN

    THE USA! I did laundry

    yesterday and the dryer sheets performed

    just like the Bounce Free I have been

    using for years, at almost half the price.
     
    My challenge to you  
    is to start reading the labels when

    you shop for everyday things and

    see what you can find that is Made

    In the USA –

    The job you save may be your own or your

    neighbor’s!
     
    If you accept the  
    challenge, pass this on to others

    in your address book so we can all

    start buying American, one light bulb at a

    time!
     
    Stop buying from    
    overseas companies – you’re

    sending the jobs there.

    (We should have awakened a decade

    ago…)
     
    Let’s get with the    
    program and help our fellow

    Americans keep their

    jobs and create more jobs here in the

    USA .
     
     
     
    I passed this on.. ..Will you??? 
    If you care about
     
    American workers, you will pass it on .
