Some of you may have seen it on TV but for those who didn’t …take the time to watch…it may even spread across the oceans to other countries…

Thanks for sharing that video Larry. It would be great if this caught on and things started to turn around here. I know there’s plenty of people that could use the jobs.

Thanks Larry.

Gee, what a concept.

Why is it people need a television show or a video to realize that, when common sense should do it.

Sounds great in theory but i’ll play devil’s advocate. The problem i see is all the Americans who think they are entitled to a work life without real world competitive pressures. Which translates to a spatula costing 26 dollars in isolated America and we find we’re still sitting in the same boat due to inflated prices eating up our newfound inflated incomes.

I received an email about this topic last week, but hadn’t seen the video. It is certainly interesting and will hopefully spur things in the right direction.

Thank you Joey, David, Jim and Dr. Dirt. I’ll make the folks at my local orange and blue boxes aware of this list.

T H A N K Y O U !!!!!!!!!!! We all need to practice that. I know it is hard to do what with the proliferation of foriegn made products that have completely saturated our markets and even in the video it took effort to source all of the products that we all just run out and buy without giving a second thought as to where they came from, but it is obviosly possible to do, with some effort. I do it too but maybe now I’ll start putting a little effort into my buying as well.

Thanks.

Lee SAID: Why is it people need a television show or a video to realize that, when common sense should do it.

I see that this is a redundant question that does not really need an answer, however, I would like to offer what I think should be the obvious answer:

Because THEY (could be any one of us) let personal/corporate GREED get in the way. Nothing more, nothing less…
