Made in the USA

American

Manufacturers

Wherever we can and if it is possible, we strive for American manufacturers.

We believe in bringing jobs back to America.

It irritates me to see China labeled on close to everything in our stores. Even some of our American flags are made in China.

Cheaper doesn’t make it right.

“The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods, and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.”
― Thomas Paine, The American Crisis

Special Report

Diane Sawyer’s special report was about all the objects in our homes produced in China. They removed ALL items from a standard, middle-class family’s home that was not made in the U.S.A. There was scarcely anything left besides the kitchen sink. Literally, during the special, they showed truckloads of U.S.A. items being brought in to replace everything and talked about how to find these items and the difference in price, etc..

It was interesting that Diane said if every American spent just $64 more than usual on U.S.A.-made items for one year, it would create something like 200,000 new jobs. When buying food at Walmart, it will often say MADE IN CHINA or P.R.C on the label. For example, “Our Family” brand of mandarin oranges says on the label “Made In China” I was shocked for a few more cents, I could buy the Liberty Gold brand or the Dole brand made in California, look on the bottom of every product you buy, and if it says ‘Made in China’ or ‘P.R.C.’ (and that now includes Hong Kong), merely choose another product. Think about this: If 200 million Americans each refuse to buy just $20 of Chinese goods, that’s a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our favor, fast!!!

Buy American-made first! I’m all in!

“He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.”-Psalms 2:4

 

“For their calamity will rise suddenly,

And who knows the ruin that comes from both of them?” -Proverbs 24:22

 

While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape. -1 Thessalonians 5:3

 

 

“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” -Psalms 46:10

 

“Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.” -Joel 2:23

 

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” -Galatians 6:7-9

 

The wicked plots against the just,

And gnashes at him with his teeth. The Lord laughs at him, For He sees that his day is coming. The wicked have drawn the sword And have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To slay those who are of upright conduct. Their sword shall enter their own heart, And their bows shall be broken. A little that a righteous man has

Is better than the riches of many wicked. For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, But the Lord upholds the righteous. -Psalms 37:12-17

America the Beautiful
O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
O beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stern impassioned stress
A thoroughfare of freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife.
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life!
America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!
O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
