    Before you go shopping do a search for the item you want to buy as made in america, you will be plesantly surprised..... I just saw a furniture manufacturing company just came back from china to build furniture here again for the quality and jobs in America... I for one will support them all who come back home.....

    In China labor probably can be had for 50 cents a day.

    Here you couldn't get a teenager to flip a burger for less than $10 per hour.

    And if you can, he won't want to work more than 4 hours because after 4 hours, he made enough money to buy his pot for the day.

    I've stopped buying "made in China" wherever possible. It's all I can do.

    It's our gov'ts fault as much as it is ours. With as much of a trade deficit we have with China, you'd think it would time to raise tarriff's and put our foot down on their imports, but our gov't is just puppets for the perveyors of Chinese crap so they don't do anything.

    Some company tries to make hats in the USA, their workers will join a hat makers union, the EPA and OSHA will come in and make sure they have to spend billions on railing protecting equipment guards protecting more guards protecting a shield on a sewing machine, and require the company to tripple treat their own wastewater from washing the hats before it goes into the sewer....and pretty soon you have a $50 hat made in the USA.

    I went to the POST EXCHANGE at FORT LEWIS Washington a while back. There was a cart vender in the entrance selling hats.

    I picked out one which said Vietnam Vet and went to pay for it. Then I noticed the inside tag said

    "MADE IN VIETNAM".

    Talk about Venting. I gave a piece of my Vietnam Vet mind to the guy running the cart and then stopped at the Installation Seargent Major's office and gave him a piece of my retired Vietnam Vet's mind also.

    I felt better after the double rant !!

    P.S. I told the vender what he should do with his hat.

    Sorry folks- I feel better already !!!!

    Happy Boating
    You yelled at a 1st shirt !? I still get chills even thinking about that old grizzley,hard boiled,mean SOB...LOL

    Im not convinced..... I was at costco a few days back and was looking from where the clothes were made. The least expensive pair of pants I found were made in the usa. Good quality too.

    I would pay the extra price anyway if I could just find it made in america. It too many times just doesn't exist.

    It's our own fault!

    So many people go to walmart to save a buck and buy the cheapest possible item.

    Quality seems to have taken a backseat

    We;ve brought it on ourselves
    I do have to agree with you Sara, most of it is our own doing. Its even worse now with times being tougher and trying to extend your dollars.

    I'm not against buying import products, some are better then USA, but, Damn an MIA hat from China, the only thing worse is if it said Hanoi.

    It would be easy to do a survey. Go to a restaurant. They're all wearing their hats so it's easy to check them. :hammer
