Where did you learn to start a sentence with "&"? Froderick has a good point, and you're going off with non sequitur nonsense. Time to vote with our wallets and buy from American companies that support American workers.
I'm not supporting Tropicana and their Brazillian oranges.
Are there any Apple Juice companies that get their apple juice from the US? I'm tired of buying Chinese apple juice.

And what quality products do you buy that is made in America? Good luck finding anything good that is made in America.

Only thing good that is made in America is beer and bongs.

I only buy American made Brazil nuts, Chinese food and Canadian Bacon.

And when I go to get gas, I make sure to ask if it's refined only from American oil. The attendant always says "Umm, yeah, I guess." and that's good enough for me!

Looking at these responses it's no wonder why we're in the shape we are. Our own citizens could give two craps about where their products come from. Sickening.

now now, don't go comparing yourself as the uber-patrioit.
actually citizens DO care that's why they're buying the imported stuff. it's best to pay a little extra to get quality then to replace, repair, rebuy over & over.

I bet you are a Walmart shopper where nothing is made in America. Too late to care. American's are stupid and it's too late to do anything about it. Look for a pair of tennis shoes made in America. Look for an electronics product made in America. Look for a fly swatter made in America. Good luck in your search. Our next President will be Chinese.

It's never too late to do something about it. If I have the option of buying an American made product over a foregin one, I'll do so.

As for Hanover's Tennis shoes, check out New Balance. Their sneakers may not be 100% U.S. materials, but they're made here.

Way to stereotype buddy! You don't know the first thing about quality, nor do you notice how disposable our TVs, Refridgerators, washers, dryers, etc have become ever since they stopped being made in the US. Nothing lasts like it used to. Just like that cheap chinese PC you're using.
Have fun buying extended warranties for your "quality" products.

So why aren't things made in the USA anymore?

Is this a serious question? Cheap labor. The money these companies save on paying out wages, they can pocket for themselves.

so is it ok for the American companies to outsource labor to sweat shops that make your clothes & other products? why is it our jobs are being outsourced period? there's plenty of people here out of work, out of money, being foreclosed on that could use an honest paycheck. so why? oh..that's right..they feel entitled to their money & everything else so they refuse the jobs & live on our welfare system instead. well, then that's also why we've got immigrants coming here taking our jobs now. so we're getting crushed on our own soil PLUS foreign.
