John Smith started the day early having set his Alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN ) for 6am. While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA ) Was perking, he shaved with his Electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG ). He put on a Dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA ), Designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE ) And Tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA ) After cooking his breakfast in his new Electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA ) He sat down with his Calculator (MADE IN MEXICO ) To see how much he could spend today. After setting his Watch (MADE IN TAIWAN ) To the radio (MADE IN INDIA ) He got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY ) Filled it with GAS (from Saudi Arabia ) And continued his search For a good paying AMERICAN JOB. At the end Of yet another discouraging And fruitless day Checking his Computer (Made In Malaysia ), John decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL ) Poured himself a glass of Wine (MADE IN FRANCE ) And turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA ), And then wondered Why he can't find A good paying job In AMERICA ..

i think they call this globalization.... and I hate to say this but I love my German car. Northville is my "home". Currently in Plymouth. Northville used to be a "track town" but it's changed, too. Lived there long? Had the Beef Wellington at McKinnon's?

John sure seems to have a lot of cool stuff for a guy that can't find a decent job. It's a world economy. The business of the U.S. has become FINANE not manufacturing.

a few years back , while I was in Australia..I decided to take a few days and go to the "outback" I needed a way to keep some food fresh so went in search of a collaspable softsided cooler...the kind many people use for carrying drinks. Anyway, I found a K-Mart and went to their campling dept where I found TA DA !!! An actual product MADE in California ! Yeap ,the cooler I bought 9000 miles from home was made essentially down the street from where I live ! Ive never seen a california camping product at home. I was surprized ! iT WAS ALL OF $ 19.00. Its a good cooler and has stood up to much abuse. Ide like to buy another one but I cant find one ! every call center I have talked with over the last 4 years or so is located out of the country. We have plenty of unskilled labor who could answer phones..why the heck are companies farming it out ?

which is exactly why I wear New Balance sport shoes. They ARE made in America. Its not inconceviable that WE will be working for China in the not too distant future. by the way.,.oil comes from Nigeria, Venezula, and Brazil just made a huge discovery. If this country had been spending its time and resources to develope alternatives such as Solar,,we would not be in this oil mess. Oil is finite and costly. The SUN is infinite and free. We already have the basic technology to power our entire lives with Solar power.
