    Email I got, feel free to cut and paste and pass on to your email list...

    PS: Look at frozen fish and shrimp packages - news reports have been done in the past on antibiotics and filth that are in the Chinese shrimp farms and yuk! Americans are eating this filth.

    I check out country of origin on everything I buy. Even food.

    Last weekend, had to buy a new washer & dryer - got the GE made in Louisville, KY.

    Let's put Americans back to work - WE CAN DO IT!

    I don't eat shrimp unless they are wild from Florida or the Gulf. I no longer eat shrimp in a restaurant since I read that most shrimp are imported from China. I do not purchase food imported from China.

    A lot of over the counter name brand medicines are imported. Some don't identify the country of origin. I wonder why OTC medicines are imported. These are not labor intensive, mostly done by machines.

    Some years ago Kroger opened a super store in town. Looking through the store I came across frozen Sockeye Salmon, the best Salmon by far, product of USA, packaged in China. Make sense, not to me!

    I'll stop buying Chinese just as soon as the US stops borrowing from them.

    Perhaps you have the correct idea, send money to China so they can bail out the Federals!

    This is a good reminder. I would add that we also need to buy from business' that support the Christian cause when ever possible. Not just because they claim to be Christian but because their walk agrees with the talk.

    We had a similar programme called Made In Britain. We try not to buy "Made In China" tat but it is very difficult to find anything else these days. We did manage to find a kettle made in Germany when ours needed to be replaced. Some many people are too complacent these days. I was disgusted to see that most of the Olympics stuff has the MIC on it too. I think that it should have been made here in the UK. When we visit the USA, we try only to by Made In America. I nearly bought a beautiful quilt once but on closer inspection I found the dreaded MIC label on it. Don't be afraid to tell the retailer. I have told many, including Cracker Barrel why I was not buying their goods.
