You can even spend all day on the internet if you choose, wringing your hands along with like-minded folks and preaching doom and gloom.

    Or you can choose to do something meaningful.

    NO thanks I have bought American trucks and cars. My Toyota is made here in the states. When the US can make a car as good as the pruis I might try it again. Until than I will get my 53 mpg.
    Everyone should be concerned about unemployment especially with the passage of obamacare you may have a good job today and be working part time tomorrow or out of work. Ask some of those that are in that situation now, they NEVER thought they would be standing in an unemployment line.

    I hope you are saving jobs and dont buy from walmart since 70 % of their products come from china.

    This is the only attitude that will work. Does anyone realize that automobiles or ball caps CAN be made in the USA? Its only because we are not willing to accept the working conditions, environmental disasters and extreme poverty of China and others, that our business executives move their manufacturing overseas. Its not the government that sent them there, it was their bottom lines.

    Its interesting to me that two days ago, the ultra cons here were calling the unemployed folks the enemy and scumbags. Today they might be you or your neighbor and it will be the President's fault.

    I own a Toyota truck. Why? Because it were made here in this country. I supported American workers, not a company who is American only in name, but not deed.

    No ducks come, in fact they shy away, but the kazoos play on!!

    OVER and OVER!!!
    Maybe if they would practice with their duck kazoos to sound like a duck they would come and not shy away. Play the right song and they will come to you with reckless abandon.

    I think some people see Toyota being made in the USA not Japan. the problem with that is that the profits go to Japan, not contribute to the USA GDP. On the other hand, the big 3 money stays here in the US. Could be wrong.

    I currently work for a MAJOR medical device manufactuer.

    As of jan 1,, a 3% tax on SALES and revenue,, not Profit,, will go into effect, to help pay for Obamacare..

    This company has manufacturing in Asia.. There prototyping ,,reserch and develpoment MAY move...

    Its wait and see right now..

    Its all about that tax that can be avoided..

    Its directly hurting Jobs where I work.
    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.
