    A possible repost:

    Joe Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN)
    for 6 a.m. While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA) was perking, he shaved with
    his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG). He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI
    LANKA), designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE) and tenni s shoes (MADE IN
    KOREA). After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN
    INDIA) he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO) to see how much he
    could spend today. After setting his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN) to the radio
    (MADE IN INDIA) he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY) and continued his search
    for a good paying AMERICAN JOB. At the e nd of yet another discouraging and
    fruitless day, Joe decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE
    IN BRAZIL) poured himself a glass of wine (MADE IN FRANCE) and turned on his
    TV (MADE IN INDONESIA), and then wondered why he can't find a good paying
    job in......AMERICA.....

    I've never seen it before.

    It's my new anthem though.

    I tell people this all the time, but nobody believes me.

    Look for MADE IN USA!!!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    84, just because it says made in USA it dosent mean it was made here. Living at a border town mex/usa i've had first had experience with that.
    durring my college years my roomate invited me to some "maquiladoras", he was majoring in international business.
    anyhow, durring one of the tours we saw "the process" of making wet suits. I wandered off a bit and at the end of the assembly line there was this guy sowing made in USA tags on the suits. WTF, we were escorted immediately out /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    don't get me wrong I do look for the made in USA tags, aswell as the made in mexico, and made in canada. I don't know much about other countries but I do know that USA is MEXICO's number one importer of goods. A lot of money goes to mexico but it comes right back /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif unlike other countries who take our money and want to send back wmds...

    ARQ.
