On a recent trip to the Washington, D.C. area I felt sick to my stomach when I noticed nearly every patriotic item sold in a souvenir store had been made in China. Doesn't it make for common sense to have items that herald all the glories of the homeland to actually be made in the same country?

I'm glad you feel the way I do. There is nothing wrong with the idea of capitalism. However, it is the corporate greed for only being loyal to the flag of profit that is ruining us...as in the United States.
I would rather pay a higher price from a mom and pop USA manufacturer than a lower price for something made sub standardly in China.
Your argument is a sound one, but I think there is a groundswell now for american manufacturers to be more flexible. At least I hope that is now the case.
Thanks for your take on this, angelicwarriors. It's true that American businesses are not always able to do what they WANT to do when they want. Often they do what they HAVE TO do for a time.
Jefferson hit the proverbial nail on the head. I'll never get used to corporations being people.
My boss likes to hire non Americans because he can pay them less....they like it because the value of the money increases in their country. Win/win for all but the American worker.
Great quote by Jefferson...sadly, this is often the case. However, capitalism should not be seen as the enemy. When corporations and the like enter into partnerships and deals with the government, the individual American suffers.
