Default Made in USA

Nothing is more American then Apple pie and Bonnevilles. For us to afford and enjoy Apple pie and our Bonnevilles nothing is more important then American manufacturing jobs. I am sick and tired of seeing Made in China on everything I look at and I am trying to get people to Think, Made in USA before they make a purchase. If you get a chance, check out: http://thinkmadeinusa.com/index.htm Hopefully we can wake a few people up and get them think about how their bread gets buttered!

That sounds like a major problem for me. When I do a search on my computer goes right to it, but that may be because I have linked to it many times. If my link did not work, did you try to type in thinkmadeinusa.com. If you did and that did not work I am not sure what the problem is.

i recently read that only 65% of the ford mustang (suposidly american) is actually american parts where the toyota minivan (can't remember the name) is closer to 90% american parts. go figure, by buying foreign you are buying more american... thats why i don't really care where it came from, just so long as its a good product.

I work in manufacturing, and i can tell you that about 50% of our product is made out of products made in china, but our final assembly is done in the US, and the company is based in the US...

tell me... if you buy our product, are you buying American?
