Made in America? For One, A Great Editorial

Made in America TestimonialVirginia paper publishes a great local editorial on products Made in America.

Poignant and powerful, Mike Stewart a local of Hampton Roads Virginia area writes in his thoughts about Made in America this past week to his Daily Press.

I had an interesting Christmas shopping season looking for things Made in America. I failed, completely.

I looked to American brand names for a replacement computer. Dell, made in China. Hewlitt Packard, made in China. Magnavox, made in China, Phillips, made in China. No flat screen TVs are made in America. No wrenches, no screw drivers, no handheld drills, no lawn edgers, no sweatshirts, no underwear.

I did find a pack of socks Made in America.

So why is unemployment, underemployment such a huge problem in the U.S.? Wouldn’t it be nice if we had good jobs right here in Hampton Roads? Remember Lucas and Gateway computers?

If people had jobs they could pay their bills, buy things that maybe aren’t totally necessary, educate their children, create economic demand that create more jobs, and pay taxes which would reduce the national debt. Why and how did this happen? Because nobody in the U.S.A is smart enough to perform these jobs? USA workers have poor work ethics? The USA is at full employment and nobody is available? No!

The answer is because the people in control of USA industrial capacity can make an extra $0.50 per unit overseas and pay for the cross ocean shipping.

I was raised near the Navajo people and they had a saying: “He who has more than he needs is not taking care of his people.”

Testimonial: Chairside Drawer Table

Chairside Drawer Table Testimonial

“This table has three things that are really impressive. First, the drawer design is fantastic; you can access the draw from either side of the table making it even more functional than the fliptop version which would require you to move things to access the compartment. Second, the size is perfect. It doesn’t dominate the room and waste space. Clean lines, minimalist yet very functional. You cannot lose. Third, the lower bookshelf adds nice functional appeal and improves the weight of the table making it very stable. This was a great buy and my first at Manchester Wood. Going to buy a bookcase next.” – Brian
