OK. This is so ridiculous that I have to blog about it. Everywhere I go, websites, shopping malls, big corporate stores. No one at these places hardly carries Made in the U.S.A. So we really have to dig deep.
It is to the point that it almost makes me sick. I am not saying that everything in my household is made in the USA. No. Not possible. Not all ALL possible. I really try to stay away from made in China. Yeah. www.chinasucks.org. Check that one out.
But let’s stop and think how we got into this big financial mess in the first place. Think about it. Consumer society driven by, well, consumerism. What exactly is it that we produce that other countries want?
Clothing? Maybe a very small percentage. Cars? Yeah. Art? Electronics? No way. Steel?
Even I don’t exactly know. Perhaps it’s guns and ammo? Yeah. WAR STUFF? If anyone out ther knows please feel free to comment.
But personally, I have my own idea. If we purchase American made, it may help our economy. If we turn towards our own workers and factories, perhaps we can make a small difference in this country. If we tell everyone else and spread this idea around, maybe more people will start trying to buy American made. Now this doesn’t mean we all have to buy American made ALL of the time. That’s just not possible anyway. But when we purchase clothing, foods, art, and other goods, we are really, truly, supporting our own citizens.
Here at Starlooks B we try to feature mostly made in the USA poducts. We love American made. And this is a new philosophy we’re trying to live by… and you should too!
Here are a few good websites that sell either all American made or mostly American-made products:
For boutique clothing and gifts, of course, www.StarlooksBoutique.com
