New Year 2016 Resolution
Made in America

Letter to the Editor:

I am writing on a very old subject at the onset of a new year. How sad it is for America not to be able to provide employment for so many unemployed Americans because the USA is not a country that manufactures many things anymore. There are so many displaced workers out there, and yet consumers are still spending their hard-earned money on products made in other countries.

In the process of your painstakingly taking the time to purchase the right gifts for those special people in your life, have you taken a moment to see where those items were made? Can you count how many were made in Bangladesh, China, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and Vietnam . . . just to name a few? Can you think of at least one gift you gave or received that said "Made in USA"?

I recently read an article in Mother Earth News Magazine that caught my attention. It was titled Craftsman Clothespins. The article brought up the fact that the clothes pins from the good old days were very sturdy. Many of the clothes pins on the market now are cheap and often come apart before you even hang up an article of clothing!

I know many people do not hang out their clothes to dry these days, but we still have uses for clothes pins. It is so refreshing to see that such a small item can still made in America!
