    I think it was a link that was deleted. He linked to another site and that site deleted it.

    A teacher in high school, once told the students that while one
    Grasshopper on the railroad tracks wouldn't slow a train very much, a
    Billion of them would . With that thought in mind, read the
    Following.............obviously written by a good American..


    (I think this lady's on the right track. Let's all get behind her!)



    Good idea. . .. .one light bulb at a time. .. . .



    Check this out. 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 .. Got me thinking. Start looking.



    In our current economic situation, every little thing we buy, or do, affects
    Someone else - maybe even their job.



    My grandson likes Hershey's candy. I just noticed that it is marked 'made
    In Mexico ' now. I choose not to buy it any more.

    My favorite toothpaste, Colgate, is also 'made in Mexico ' now. I've switched
    To Crest. You have to read the labels on everything.



    This past weekend I was at Kroger. (Can be true for any store.) I
    Needed 60W light bulbs, and Bounce dryer sheets. I was in the light bulb
    Aisle, and right next to the GE brand 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 (you got it) the USA ', in a company in Cleveland , Ohio .



    So throw out the myth that you cannot find the products you use every
    Day........made right here!!!!!!!



    On I went to another aisle. Those Bounce Dryer Sheets I needed - yep, you
    Guessed it! Bounce cost more money - and - it's made in Canada . The
    Everyday Value brand was less money - and - 'MADE IN THE USA'! Bye-bye
    Bounce! I did laundry yesterday, and the dryer sheets performed just like
    The Bounce Free I've been using for years...........and at almost half the
    Price!



    My challenge to you is this. 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 neighbors!



    If you accept the challenge, 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 and other countries!



    (We should have awakened a decade ago . . .. . . . )



    Let's get with the program . . . . And help our fellow Americans keep their
    Jobs, and create even more jobs, right here in the U. S. A.
