Brandon Whitmore Posted January 10, 2010 Report Share Posted January 10, 2010 ONE LIGHT BULB AT A TIME....Buy American Made ONE LIGHT BULB AT A TIME....Buy American Made This works when the dollar is weak and the people are afraid for their jobs. Buy USA ........ A physics teacher in high school, once told his students While one grasshopper on the railroad tracks wouldn't slow a train at all, a billion of them would! With that thought in mind, read the following, obviously written by a good American. Good idea . . . one light bulb at a time! Check this out: I can verify this because I was in Lowes the other day, and just for the heck of it, I was looking 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. In our current economic situation, every little thing we buy or do affects someone else - even their job. My son likes Hershey's candy. I noticed, though, that it is marked made in Mexico now. I will not buy it any more. My favorite toothpaste Colgate is made in Mexico now. I have switched to Crest. You have to read the labels on everything.. This past weekend I was at Kroger. I needed 60 W light bulbs and Bounce dryer sheets. I was in the light bulb aisle, and right next to the GE brand that I normally buy, was an off brand labeled, "Everyday Value". I picked up both types of bulbs and compared the stats - they were the same except for the price. The GE bulbs were more money than the Everyday Value brand but the thing that surprised me the most was the fact that GE was made in MEXICO !!! and the Everyday Value brand was made in - get ready for this - the USA in a company in Cleveland , Ohio . So throw out the myth that you cannot find products you use every day that are made right here. So on to another aisle - Bounce Dryer Sheets . . .yep, you guessed it, Bounce costs more money and is made in China . The Everyday Value brand was less money and MADE IN THE USA ! I did laundry yesterday and the dryer sheets performed just like the Bounce Free I have been using for years and at almost half the price! Lay's stacked potato chips in a can is made in Mexico . Good old Pringles made in USA . 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! If you accept the challenge, please 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! (We should have awakened a decade ago) Let's get with the program. Help our fellow Americans keep their jobs and create more jobs here in the U. S. A.
