Christmas Without China
Union Leader [Manchester, NH], by Meghan Pierce

Original Article

Posted By:Graniteman2009, 12/2/2012 9:24:10 AM

Holiday consumers have long been aware that shopping local helps their local economy stay vibrant. This holiday season, though, there is a growing awareness that shopping for gifts made in America helps jobs stay stateside. "It´s the jobs thing. People have definitely connected the dots. Consumers are more savvy and more educated than ever, and the days of conspicuous consumption of buy, buy, buy, buy, buy are gone," said JimTherriault, owner of New England Everyday Goods in Peterborough.

Yeh.. A yo yo for my kids..WHen the elitist / distainfull libs are in control the first thing they do is "make you feel good " . this locovore movement is about limiting your choice so they can sell YOU on happiness through correct thinking/ shopping /eating /healthcare. I want French perfume, German cars and maybe a doll made by 136 th street Mme Alexander.
After WW2 victorious GIs brought some of the above home.. Now losing obots who don´t value this country want to resrore the Luddite movemet. of there is no manufacturing here it is because of onerous taxes , EPA ,OSHA ,union thugs . yo yos indeed.. Can´t even bake a dam Twinkie or ho ho here anymore

You can also search for vintage Christmas items made in the USA. Sometimes they are quite cool looking and bring back good memories.

Yup, instead of low priced necessities I´ll buy some bees wax candles.

Might have helped during the blackout.

I started buying custom cards from Zazzle and Shutterfly because I could not bear to send out a Christmas card that said "Made in China" on the back.

I was also distressed to see The Vermont Country Store carrying so many Christmas standards that are now made in China. I guess I can´t fault them if there are no factories left that will make the ornaments and candles I loved in my childhood.

I make my own ornaments now.

Nothing exemplifies the spirit of Christmas giving among friends and family than homemade gifts. From jams and jellies to whirligigs and birdfeeders, give of your time and yourself instead of the latest electronic gadget. You and your family will be the better for it.

I asked my local shop for Christmas cards that were made in America. All were from China. I did not buy. Agree #5.
I will make up my own Christmas letter (with pictures) this year. I will also look closely at stamps -- none that say justice, equality, even with the flag.

#7, you can have custom stamps made at Zazzle as well. I have been doing that for the past three years. I have my own pictures put on most of them, but they have hundreds of Christmas designs.

I swear I don´t work for the company and that I am a frequent poster, not a shill.

Apart from #1, it´s so nice to see the protectionists alive and well here. While I have no problem buying locally made goods, let´s remember that we also sell over a hundred million dollars worth of goods to China each year. It is less than we buy in return but we are much wealthier per capita; with the potential to sell much more as overall wealth in China increases. Trade is a two-way street.There are always problems but let´s not throw the baby out with the bathwater.
Also I´ve never understood bemoaning the loss of low skill, low wage jobs. How many here would actually work in a factory to produce the goods Americans want?

Has Rush Limbaugh Finally

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use linked with

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Why is US Senator Harry

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Elizabeth Warren whines about coverage

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
