100% agree with both of you!! Great posts!!!!
Thanks it takes a little extra time to look for that "made in" label and its depressing when you see how little is actually made here. And people want to create all these media manufactured reasons why we have no jobs. "The wrong politicians are in charge" "The job creators need more money" Or "They're just plain scared" "The old and poor aren't paying enough taxes" Gimme a break people. We have no jobs because we don't make anything anymore!!!

I couldn't agree with you more. We do make things here in the US, but most of it is mail order. If you type in Google: "Made in the USA there are many stores out there that sell US goods, but you have to order and pay shipping. I often wonder if someone opened a store like this in our towns whether or not it would be supported. Usually things are a little more expensive, but if you were around when we did make things in this country you know they last forever. In our kitchen we have a Mixmaster that was from the middle 80s, works like the day it was made and was from Sunbeam, Chicago, Il. Also an item called "Hot Shot" made by Sunbeam in the US, dated 1979, that heats water instantly, for oatmeal, cream if wheat, hot chocolate, Jell-O, or just about anything. No guessing, it heats perfectly, unlike the microwave where water has blown up in people's faces. I think Anchor Hocking is still made here, but beware of Pyrex unless yours is 20 years or older because the have changed the silica (made in China) and these things explode in the oven. That said - virtually nothing we use on a daily basis is American made anymore, and it doesn't matter how exclusive the item is.

Look for produce with the American flag, grown in the US, it's there if you look. Look on labels such as those in Wal-Mart that say, packaged or distributed by so-and-so for Wal-Mart - make sure it's a US company or it could be a product of a foreign country, not grown here but simply canned or packaged here. This reminds me of those strawberries that were sold at Wal-Mart some years back that put hundreds and hundreds of people in the hospital across the country. They were grown in Mexico.

I realize our own country could produce something that could do the same thing, but I would much rather have mushroom's from the USA than some place in Taiwan.

If you're really concerned about food and product recalls, and there are plenty of them, subscribe to U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recall list. Each day you will be shocked at the recalls across the country for Listeria or Salmonella - it's pretty scary stuff.

As for political boastings of who can bring jobs back to this country..........

I totally agree!! So what if some people have a lot of money! Not all, but most of them worked for it. That IS the American dream. It totally amazes me! If any one of us built a successful company or developed a successful new product, we could be millionaires. Is that something bad??? Do you think Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Donald Trump, Mitt Romney and many others did not work hard to become successful and rich?????

Breaking news...The DOJ cleared the DOJ and their agency leader Eric Holden of any wrongdoing in the Fast and Furious fiasco just in time for Obama's re-election!
To summarize...another big F*CK YOU to the murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and his family. The first big eff you to the Terry family came when Pelosi and all the dems walked out when the other politicians on the Hill were attempting to get facts concerning the Fast and Furious fiasco.
We have seen in the past just how well it works out when you allow people to police themselves. Somehow they come up out of that bucket of shit smelling like a rose even though they are still knee-deep in all kinds of shit.
You people will fall for anything and you are living proof that Obama's decision to rely on your stupidity was the right path for him to take when his narcissistic legacy was taking the wrong path. Reel 'em back in Barry, reel those fish back in!
They cleared Holder, not the DOJ.

WASHINGTON — The internal watchdog of the Justice Department is faulting the agency for misguided strategies, errors in judgment and management failures during a bungled gun-trafficking probe in Arizona that resulted in hundreds of weapons turning up at crime scenes in the U.S. and Mexico.

In a 471-page report, Inspector General Michael Horowitz referred over a dozen people for possible disciplinary action for their roles in Operation Fast and Furious. The report did not criticize Attorney General Eric Holder.

Is anyone concerned over the killing of our Ambassador and 3 other Americans in Libya?

On Wednesday, U.S. intelligence officials confirmed for the first time publicly that al Qaeda's North African affiliate is connected with the militants who carried out the terrorist attack in Libya.

News that Ambassador Christopher Stevens was aware that he was on an al Qaeda "hit list" has highlighted the lack of security protecting American State Department officials and U.S. interests abroad.

The U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens expressed concerns to officials and friends about the growing concern over the rising number of Islamist extremists and al-Qaeda in Libya. CNN reports that a source said Ambassador Stevens knew he was on al Qaeda's "hit list."

In addition to the terrorist attack, violent protests broke out in dozens of countries over an American produced film that insults the Muslim Prophet Mohammed. The terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya appears to have been pre-planned, and the protesters were a diversion.

Okay Mr. President… What do you plan to do about the continuing uprisings in Libya & Egypt? How long are you going to allow innocent lives to be sacrificed before you finally take a stand and do something about it? This is a serious problem, not some simulation or hypothetical scenario. Is it not your duty to keep all of our citizens safe, especially when they are on diplomatic missions? Apparently these diplomatic missions and your empty words aren’t helping the issue. Why did you try to cover this up as being a spontaneous assault due to a film???????

I totally agree too. I would like to have $57,000 dumped in my checkbook every day too, as someone on here said. But it's not going to happen, so that's the way it is.

Mitt Romney did not take any salary when he was governor. Nor did he keep the legacy left to him by his father. He gave it to charity. In fact their family gives a lot to charity - charity of their choice, which is what he believes in and that's his business, not for anyone to criticize.

He admitted he lost some, and won some. That's the gamble you take in business, but I do think he has a better business head on him than Obama, who relies on his advisors because he didn't get his money without help and input from those who did have it.

Obama wants to take it from those who have it and redistribute---- those who worked hard, saved, invested wisely and made sacrifices and are now in a comfortable position. He feels that these people somehow owe it to those who have less. Easy for him to say because our government will see to his life-long security where he won't ever have to work again if he chooses not to - even after he is no longer president - assuring him that taxpayers will foot the bill for his comfortable lifestyle for the rest of his life.

Obama is not a democrat. He is a socialist plain and simple.

Among other things!

Mitt gave the money to the LDS Church in order to insure he will become a God of his own planet according to Mormon teachings. Obama wants to pay the bills with the top incomes money. Mitt wants to hide his money in off shore accounts to not pay taxes. Once upon a time there was a middle class that built and made America thrive. That class has been dying for 30 years while the rich on Wall St make billions trading money with each other and calling it making money. Instead of the top 400 Richest listed in Fortune magazine being owners of companies that build things the list is now made up mostly of bankers and hedge fund managers that make nothing and hire no one. The biggest exception being number one Bill Gates. Gates closed his American factories and shipped the jobs to China to pay .30 cents an hour slaves.

I'm happy you all listen to the National Enquirer of news. While you idiots soak in the stupid shit, the world passes you by
Fox really does make you stupid! We all see it here on a daily basis!!
Mitt spoke the absolute, unadulterated TRUTH! I listened to every word, that ABC would allow me to listen to, and didn't disagree with a word of it. There ARE people, much like yourself I imagine, who will vote for Obama ONLY for the goodies he can give them. Well, they're not "goodies," Tabby. If they were, these "victims" would be lounging on "dem streets of gold!" Nope, it's the same old shit that you Democrats keep on believing, year after year after year.

Question: What has Obama done for YOU, Tabby? Has he made YOU rich? Are you "libbin' on dem streets o' gold?" Hell, no! You're just like the rest of your buddies; standing there, once again, with your hand out. You're really sad, my friend. Just think, if you hadn't been such a (as you put it) "tool," you could have been friends with Big Stevie by now. That could still happen, but there will be some grovelling involved, on your part, so get them knee pads on!

The entire 47 minutes of video is out for everyone to see. Kind of stupid of you to say a network won't let you see it. Poor lazy teabagger wants everyone to do everything for him. And it's fine that you believe in everything he said, no one of intelligence does.
And one last time Nutball, I don't want to have anything to do with you. It's very annoying when someone speaks of them self in third party. Those people are usually very unstable.
And in closing, I put in my time at a very hard job and that's it. You can moan and complain about leaving and doing better for yourself. You're still delivering pizzas while I'm enjoying life.

Unions!! That's why Repubs hate em! You don't have to work til your dead for pennies on the hour like these tools!!

It's mostly the jealous lazy people who feel this way. It's like they think that the rich ran out in the fields and the streets one morning and scooped all the money that fell from the sky that was just laying around and never gave anyone else a chance to get some of it. Now it's not fair for them to have all that money, and they should have to give some to the rest of us that didn't go out and work for it the way you did.

For nearly 15 years, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's financial portfolio has included an offshore company that remained invisible to voters as his political star rose.

Based in Bermuda, Sankaty High Yield Asset Investors Ltd. was not listed on any of Romney's state or federal financial reports. The company is among several Romney holdings that have not been fully disclosed, including one that recently posted a $1.9 million earning — suggesting he could be wealthier than the nearly $250 million estimated by his campaign.

The omissions were permitted by state and federal authorities overseeing Romney's ethics filings, and he has never been cited for failing to disclose information about his money. But Romney's limited disclosures deprive the public of an accurate depiction of his wealth and a clear understanding of how his assets are handled and taxed, according to experts in private equity, tax and campaign finance law.

Sankaty was transferred to a trust owned by Romney's wife, Ann, one day before he was sworn in as Massachusetts governor in 2003, according to Bermuda records obtained by The Associated Press. The Romneys' ownership of the offshore firm did not appear on any state or federal financial reports during Romney's two presidential campaigns. Only the Romneys' 2010 tax records, released under political pressure earlier this year, confirmed their continuing control of the company

It is interesting to know,but so what?Congress makes the tax laws,the people abide with.Tax lawyers figure out the loopholes and the rich(you know,the ones that work to make and keep their money)can afford the tax lawyers to take care of their money.We should all be trying the same thing!!!And just go over the Congress persons that do that!!The same as they allow themselves the priviledge to use insider information about the stock market while they deny it to the public.It is a rule we all follow,try to get rich!!!

So,why don`t you go find out about Obama?It has now come out he was not raised as we poor people out here,He had some rich background.But he sought a grant to pay his college by claiming foreign student classification!This has been shown on his college papers finally gotten thru law suits!
