Something To Think About!


Recommended Posts

I saw this on another forum but had to share with the Adam's crowd, since I know we can all appreciate the made in the USA label.


As the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high

gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced

goods --merchandise that has been produced at the expense of American labor.

This year will be different. This year Americans will give the gift of

genuine concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that, at

gift giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by American hands.

Yes there is!


It's time to think outside the box, people. Who says a gift needs to fit in

a shirt box, wrapped in Chinese produced wrapping paper?


Everyone -- yes EVERYONE gets their hair cut. How about gift certificates

from your local American hair salon or barber?


Gym membership? It's appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some

health improvement.


Who wouldn't appreciate getting their car detailed? Small, American owned

detail shops and car washes would love to sell you a gift certificate or a

book of gift certificates.


Are you one of those extravagant givers who think nothing of plunking down

the Benjamins on a Chinese made flat-screen? Perhaps that grateful gift

receiver would like his driveway sealed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or

driveway plowed all winter, or games at the local golf course.


There are a bazillion owner-run restaurants -- all offering gift

certificates. And, if your intended isn't the fancy eatery sort, what about

a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint. Remember, folks this

isn't about big National chains -- this is about supporting your home town

Americans with their financial lives on the line to keep their doors open.


How many people couldn't use an oil change for their car, truck or

motorcycle, done at a shop run by the American working guy?


Thinking about a heartfelt gift for mom? Mom would LOVE the services of a

local cleaning lady for a day.


My computer could use a tune-up, and I KNOW I can find some young guy who is

struggling to get his repair business up and running.


OK, you were looking for something more personal. Local crafts people spin

their own wool and knit them into scarves. They make jewelry, and pottery

and beautiful wooden boxes.


Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave

your server a nice tip. And, how about going out to see a play or ballet at

your hometown theatre.


Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands.


Honestly, people, do you REALLY need to buy another ten thousand Chinese

lights for the house? When you buy a five dollar string of light, about

fifty cents stays in the community. If you have those kinds of bucks to

burn, leave the mailman, trash guy or babysitter a nice BIG tip.


You see, Christmas is no longer about draining American pockets so that

China can build another glittering city. Christmas is now about caring about

US, encouraging American small businesses to keep plugging away to follow

their dreams. And, when we care about other Americans, we care about our

communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we couldn't imagine.

THIS is the new American Christmas tradition.


This is a revolution of caring about each other, and isn't that what

Christmas is about?


What an excellent idea!


Pass it on.
