Made in . . . ?


Joseph (Joe) Smith started his day early after turning off his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN) that had been set for 6 a.m.

While his electric coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG.) He then put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA), a pair of designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE), and new tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA.)

After cooking breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA), Joe sat down with his electronic calculator (MADE IN MEXICO) to see how much money was in his budget for the day's activity.

After checking his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN) and setting to the time given on his radio (MADE IN INDIA), he jumped into his foreign car (MADE IN GERMANY) and continued his daily search for a good paying job where he lived in Columbus, Ohio.

Eight hours later and at the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day, Joe decided to relax on his special couch (MADE IN SWEDEN), slipped on his comfortable sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL), poured himself a cool glass of wine (MADE IN FRANCE), and turned on his flat-screen television (MADE IN INDONESIA) . . . and then pondered over the rest of the evening why he couldn't find a good paying job.

So here's a message for good old Joe.

"If you don't buy products made in American, along with those products that are manufactured by foreign corporations in America, what do you expect to happen to jobs when so much less is being . . . . (MADE IN AMERICA?)
