36. American Made?
I had some American made Jasmine Rice last nite, my first nite back in the US since I left to serve in the UN peace corps (cough, cough, peace, cough, cough, we had big guns).....anyway, the rice was horrible, it really was. American made rice is one thing, yes, but now cars, and appliances? Come on, that would save too much money, create a balanced import/export reciept and overall it would just be horrible enough---it'd create jobs! American jobs!

That's too much, the truth is, and I'm getting off topic to say this, but the days of the factory laborour are over here in america, now if you don't have a college (4 year) degree, your better off giving up and filing for welfare (but that'll be gone in 4 years, thank you George W!), so tying this back to the topic, its not the way things are going as you put it. Things and goods to be built are out but they are coming in---only already assembled, the only real grip we have on our auto production in America is how it gets to the dealer from the warehouse, (American Truckers).

American Made, thats' the biggest joke, you know what? The label that says American Made was probably made in America but if you peel that sticker back, you'll find a stamped print "Made Somewhere Else".

And thats it.
