WILL YOU SUPPORT AMERICAN COMPANIES & WORKERS THIS CHRISTMAS?
November 16, 2011
Several weeks before Halloween retailers began the push for Christmas. While I don’t watch TV commercials, I see by channel surfing here and there in evening down time, which isn’t much, the Christmas commercials are running full speed.
Christmas is celebrated as the birth date of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Along the way, it has turned into a national spending frenzy with the pressure put on to spend long before you even buy your Thanksgiving turkey.
I am not out to change “the season”, but as I do throughout the year, I ask you to please support American companies and jobs for Americans with your consumer dollars. The usual retort I get is you can’t find Made in USA. That simply isn’t true. You can and I do when I need to make a purchase. Granted, it takes longer than running down to a “big box” store like China Mart (Wal Mart) who long ago sold the soul of that company to our mortal enemy, the communist Chinese.
Don’t buy the clever marketing about “free” trade bringing you “cheap” products. Yeah, they’re cheap made by slave labor in communist China, but what are you really buying? Cheap sweaters with fur woven from dogs skinned alive. Oh, you won’t read that on the label, but rest assured, that fur is found in sweaters, parkas and hats sold here in the U.S. How can that be? By shipping the fur to other barbaric countries and cheating on all the customs forms; the finished product ends up here on store shelves.
