    Don't forget- lots and lots of baloney- especially in Washington, D.C. and especially this next 11 months.

    The Harley-Davidson M/C is assembled, not manufactured in the US. The Ford I would like to have, the Flex, engine made in Spain, assembled in Turkey.

    Go to any store, 90% of the products NOT made in USA except for booze, ciggybutts, and groceries

    I don't care much if something is "Made in the USA." we live in a global village, frankly things are better with radical diversity of manufacturing across the world.

    All my Remington firearms are made in the USA. In fact, they are made about a mile from here.

    God forbid that we ever get into another world war. Without manufacturing our tanks, planes and other war implements will have to be bought from the Chinese.

    One reason I prefer we manufacture our own things here.

    I had my class of senior high school girls make up birthday cards for my father's upcoming 91st birthday. A couple of them wrote at the bottom of their homemade cards:"Made In China." LOL.

    Whew!

    And I thought $4.00 was an outrage to cross the Narrows Bridge here in the Seattle-Tacoma area.
