Today! the paper was screaming that McCain and Obama were sparing over what do to about the staggering economy and NEITHER had an answer.
Please! Go to Home Depot and read the labels! We don't manufacture ANYTHING anymore!
The STEEL in the automobiles comes from overseas, the lumber comes from Canada and Sweden, the clothing from everywhere, the electronics and appliances from the East. We don't manufacture anything any more.
And how do the auto company executives think any American is going to buy anything, if the manufacturers are not buying from THEM!!!!!!! They keep downsizing apace with the dollars they themselves ship overseas. Duh!
Outsource? Yeah, its cheaper until NO ONE CAN AFFORD TO BUY FROM YOU ANY LONGER.
DOLTS! Simplicity! If I don't buy American products to fix, remodel my customer's homes, then I did not buy from them, and soon they will not be able to afford me.
Please, all of you, look at the labels. Damned little is made here. Too little. Trade is good. That means I trade my goods for your goods.
Just shipping money overseas is a short or long term DISASTER.
Someone must know one of the Senators. Please, ask him to walk into a Home Depot and start reading labels.
The solution is get back to work and manufacture our own steel, our own microwaves, our own gas pipe.
Buy from the people who buy from you.
