Lets see how big we can get this list. Help support our country BUY AMERICAN!!
I will start:
Looks like I am the only person here who tries to buy American
Hurray! I’m reasonably certain our car companies are still American owned. So far anyway.
Intel is building fabrication plants in the U.S. again, so add computer chips to the list.
No, you're not the only one who buys American....
I just got thrown by the thread title, wondering why a product would be mad. Who or what is it mad at? How does one evaluate that?
Could someone check their box of Trojans and get back to us?
Lots of products make people mad in the USA.
Not everyone here wants to buy American, there are hubbers from all over the world here.
Attention all non-U.S. Hubbers!
Please buy American. If we go down, you go down. Simple as that.
People all over the world like their MickyDonalds hamburgers.
Lockheed Martin, Boeing, John Deere all make products in America.
I don't think I can post a URL here but a popular blog called A Continuous Lean has a section called The American List. Just Google those terms and you'll find their list of Made in the USA companies, including New Era (baseball caps), Leatherman (multi-tools), Zippo (lighters), and literally hundreds of others.
Quite a bit of the stuff on the store shelves here in Canada is made in the U.S.A. We're your biggest customer, you know.
Not proud of the fact mind you. We used to make a lot of stuff here, but all the small and medium-size companies got bought out and they moved the jobs elsewhere.
There aren't very many products that are 100 percent made in the USA. I think the only thing that is still American made is food, and, some grocery chains are trying very had to have that imported too. The only reason it hasn't happened is because of our tight food safety laws.
But, I think things like Pencils, and some stationary is still made here. But, almost everything else is built somewhere else, and is only assembled, packaged, and shipped here.
Ford cars are american made, right?
beer? Samuel Adams?
There is am abundance of Mexican made Fords!
While Ford may claim to manufacture cars in America, not all of the car is made in the Untied States. Some parts of the car are made in other countries and shipped to the Ford plants for assembly.
I think this could be the reason why so many of todays cars are being recalled, is because the parts that are coming from other countries may not have to deal with the regulations in the U.S. Thus, we get faulty parts, and the model of the car in question has to be recalled to inspect.
I also worked for a major supermarket chain, and you would be surprised by the amount of produce that comes from other countries. A majority of the citrus comes from countries in South America. The only thing we still consume domestic is corn, beef, and poultry, the rest comes from out of the country, a lot of it from Mexico, where farming is even cheaper than
the factories that have moved down there.
The sad thing is, we could produce huge amounts of food here, but, those food giants who monopolise the stock market, would rather that our farms remain less productive, to keep the costs of food high, while they get foreign produce for pennies on the dollar, continuing to make them rich.
While a lot of people starve to death.
I am in the UK and a while back I saw these really cool looking moulds for cakes (one was for a cool geometric design) with the US, made in America flag on it!
I was surprised and thought, cool. At least something is being exported from the states then
Fiesta dishes (aka. Fiestaware) are made in America. A lot of books are also made in America.

My wife loves french make-up and silk scarves, I love Italian loafer and foreign cars. We try to buy right and have started to try to buy American. Do you care? Should we care? Is buying American activism or protectionism? Can we create American jobs IF we buy more...

What will it take for USA to realize we need to start minding our own business?Wouldn't this be the simplest solution to all the issues with other countries? I hate to sound cold hearted but if they want to kill their neighbors it's none of our business. Why not just work towards being 100%...

Hey Hubbers,I know everyone has their own view about it, but I'd like to get your view about it.Is the taxation on business too much?Please realize- any taxation business incurs is passed along to you the citizen.So, technically, you pay taxes twice on certain products.Recently, in Mass the price...
