      This is  

         something we can check out and  hopefully we  

         can  

          save American  

          jobs.  

                A friend wrote:  

        

         This may  

        seem like a funny email but I was so  surprised by  

        what I discovered  I had to share it with  you.  When I  

         think    

        of the job  situation in this country I  

        can’t help but think this helps in some  small way.    

         I don’t know  

        how many  households there are in the US  

        but if these were the only things we  

        bought think  of the  impact....  

         This past  

        weekend I was at Kroger.  I needed 60 W  

         light  bulbs and  Bounce dryer sheets.  

          I was in the light bulb aisle and right next to the GE  

        brand I  normally buy was  

         an  off  

        brand  labeled “Everyday Value”   I  

        picked up both  

        types  of bulbs and compared  the stats  

        - they were the  

        same except for the price.  

          The GE bulbs were more  

         money  than the  Everyday Value brand but the thing that  

        surprised me the  

        most was the fact  that GE was made in MEXICO and the  

        Everyday Value brand was  made in - get  

        ready for this - the USA.  So throw out the  

        myth  that you cannot find products  

        you use every day that are made right here  

        - from a  company  in Cleveland  OH !  So on to  another aisle - Bounce Dryer  

        Sheets....yep you guessed it Bounce was more  

        money  and made  in Canada, the  Everyday Value brand was less  

        money and MADE IN  

        THE USA!  I did laundry  yesterday and  

        the dryer sheets  

        performed just like the Bounce Free I have been  using for  years and at  

         almost half the price!  

         So my  

        challenge to you is  to start reading the labels when you shop for everyday things  

        and see what you can  find that  

         is made in the  USA - the job  

        you save may be your own or your neighbors!  

          If you  

        accept the  challenge, pass this on to others in your address book so  

         we can all start  buying American,  

        one light bulb at  

        a time happy  !  Besides you might save  

         a little  green in the  process.  

        

        Stop buying the crap from  China  

        people.......... We should of woke up a decade ago......  lets get with the  program....  

        help our fellow Americans keep there jobs  

        and  create more jobs here.
