Maybe that's a way to save money, if you have any leftover organic food, you can put it in your radiator. lol

I'll agree its harder and harder to buy domestic.
I'll also agree a GOOD wage is getting harder and harder to get.

Anyone see the parallel there?

I dont want to bore anyone with History, but back before any of us were born, in NYC, there was a very large community of Jewish Settlers who were starving and destitute. Much worse than we are today. They bought things from within their community regardless of price. When they went outside the community, the bargained very hard, and when they sold outside the community, they never dropped their price. What did that do? It meant the members could get a fair price for products, yet anything to come INTO their area, was discounted heavily. It kept the money in the community and eventually, most of the community thrived. We've lost that lesson. Probably to anti semitists?No clue why. The important thing is, when a dollar goes out of the country, only a very small portion comes back due to our ineffective trade policies. So, sure, buy from Harbor Freight, if you can pay them literally nothing. BUT its important to buy more domestic to offset that loss of sale. Im not saying buy off a truck. There are still domestic tool makers. The Hand Tools Institute Member Directory The job you save may be your own.

dickheadslife, reagan is the reason there are no negotiations in the workplace now and no job is safe. and it was him that tore down all the infrastructure and started sending the jobs overseas. and do you ever think that if you wouldnt feel you have to buy the most expensive "made in america" products you might have been able to keep some of your toys that you had to sell to live? but from all your posts in the offtopic i can tell your not smart enough to live smart. and if you dont like the fact that the majority of this country voted for tax cuts to expire and the universal healthcare that you think your gonna foot the entire bill for. then denounce citizenship where you wont have to pay any tax. maybe go to some south american country where there are no regulation, i hear its a republican paradise down there. but maybe one day in this country it will be the way you would like it. and you will be old by that time and end up laying in your own feces because there is no healthcare to wipe your arse. if something dont happen or develop with you before then.

well let me just roll over now and start feeding my daughter plain antifreeze. I don't really have any cows or a pasture so I guess I'll keep waisting my money on organic and wishful thinking.

You really should research the organic food thing....I have heard from numerous sources that it is hardly regulated at all and that it is really just a marketing tool to get higher prices. One of the other mods on here is a food inspector, maybe he has something to say on this

I look at it this way, you support slavery everytime you knowingly buy imported goods.. spin it any way you want.. but thats the bottom line.. as long as you can buy cheap junk, 401k is making money and your employed, you couldn't care less..
only way this countries gonna claw back is if the people look for and demand made here items.. and learn they don't need everything they are told they need.. as I'm sure no one could aford an i phone if it was made here, even tho they'll stand in line every 6-9 months to buy a replacement for the one in their hand that works just fine..
or that tv having to buy a 42 or 60" because well the 38" isn't big enough in the penis war with your buddies..
we all can afford to buy american made.. we are just wastefull.. got to have it, marketers wet dream
looks like the kid who grew up poor in the inner city may have contributed to more US jobs than you... shoud I post up the eagle/USA tee too?

Hostile

Looks like this runn141 person is pretty hostile, perhaps anger management should be in his or her's future, how terribly rude.
