Stumbled across this story about a man named John Rukavina who is a member of Chicago’s Local 1 ironworker union. John just turned 75, but in these videos and interview here, he is 74 years old – and still climbing up on the top of the skyscrapers in Chicago to install new antennas. John claims to have worked on every high tower in Chicago since 1964. More…
Here are some rather, ummmmm… unusual people caught by a camera. Now, keep in mind, when people dress in highly “creative” outfits, it is because they want to the attention and/or to have fun. So… give ‘em some attention. Then there are others who are most definitely a one-of-a-kind individual. WTF…..
Violence marred Black Friday shopping in at least five states, including a California incident in which police say a woman doused fellow shoppers with pepper spray in a bid to cut to the head of the line.
The incident happened at a Walmart in the Porter Ranch area of Los Angeles, police spokesman Officer Robert Chavira said.
About 15 people were exposed to the spray. Los Angeles firefighters treated them at the scene and no one required hospitalization, Chavira said.
The woman was able to pay for her purchases and leave the store before police arrived, Chavira said. More…
Did you see that Diane Sawyer special report about how they removed ALL items from a typical, middle class family’s home that were not made in the USA? Shocking.
There was hardly anything left besides the kitchen sink. Literally. During the special they are going to show truckloads of items – USA made – being brought in to replace everything and will be talking about how to find these items and the difference in price etc..
It was interesting that Diane said that if every American spent just $64 more than normal on USA made items this year, it would create something like 200,000 new jobs!
I was buying food the other day at Walmart and on the label of some products it said, “From China.” Doesn’t Walmart promote American Made? I was so shocked, I spent a few more cents to buy the Dole brand from California.
Are we Americans as dumb as we appear — or — is it that we just do not think while the Chinese, knowingly and intentionally, export inferior and even toxic products and dangerous toys and goods to be sold in American markets?
70% of Americans believe that the trading privileges afforded to the Chinese should be suspended.
Why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges? DO IT YOURSELF, AMERICA!!
Simply look on the bottom of every product you buy, and if it says ‘Made in China ‘ or ‘PRC’ (and that now includes Hong Kong ), simply choose another product, or none at all. You will be amazed at how dependent you are on Chinese products, and you will be equally amazed at what you can do without.
Who needs plastic eggs to celebrate Easter? If you must have eggs, use real ones and benefit some American farmer. Easter is just an example. The point is do not wait for the government to act. Just go ahead and assume control on your own.
THINK ABOUT THIS: If 200 million Americans refuse to buy just $20 each of Chinese goods, that’s a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our favor…fast!!
If we can’t live without cheap Chinese goods for one month out of our lives, WE DESERVE WHAT WE GET!
BUY AMERICAN !!!!!
