Buying Local -

July 10, 2019 08:00PM avatar
I like to buy local. My current job depends upon the powers that be NOT sending my work "off shore".

I would like to see durable goods that are sold here, made here rather than shipped in from another place. Obviously, that doesn't work for all types of things where there is centralized fabrication and not enough demand to justify having a manufacturing facility in every city, or state or country or continent.

The final destination of sending all of our manufacturing and support jobs off shore is that eventually, the only people left with a job and an income with which to buy the imported goods are the corporate executives running the business that off shored all of the 'work' of their businesses.

Don't really want to go there.

I saw a bumper sticker on a ranch truck pulling up onto the road with a load of alfalfa. Sticker said, *GOT FOOD? THANK A FARMER OR RANCHER".

Be grateful.

My opinion: No, they really don't. ... An AT Max would be a bad decision.

Actually, I found the mid-to-late 70s to be some of the better years.

I learned by example to shop for quality-made products early in life.
