Pride Not Profit


Me and some friends were talking about how it seems the majority of the people out there are willing to buy a piece of junk just to save a buck. And it is often the same person that will complain that the economy and job market sucks as they open their monthly check and go burn it at walmart. I know that not all foreign stuff is bad or every last thing made here is quality, but there is usually a difference in either the product or effect it has on us all. Small shops are dying and so are our jobs. I try not to ever push my opinion on other people (another cancer of our society) but we were curious to know what our supporters thought and if it was any different in our sketchy little corner of the world. So we set up a dopey little poll over there on the right... if you have an honest opinion on it and want to help settle our bar room debate...

I'm done... thanks

  1. Well... for what it's worth, my openion (I did vote on the Poll to the right!)
    I always try to support the Local Small Business and not the Big chain stores, buy American Made if at all possible. Sometime its Fkn impossible now days! Living in a big city makes it hard to do but some of us do the best we can with what we have to work with...

  4. Definitely need to buy American made products, but more importantly people need to pay attention to the fact that this country no longer has the personnel with the ability to make anything. There is a proposal in office right now to cut Perkins Funding by 92 million dollars. Perkins is the main source of grant money that allows technical education in this country to even exist. So by all means buy the four things that are still made in this country, but more importantly pay attention to the cock sucker politions that want to disable this nation and keep us helpless spectators in the game of innovation.

  5. You know whats really fucking gay, is people saying they support American made when they buy china shit daily and bitch about how much the china shit costs. I would be willing to bet the farm on it, people want to believe they go out of there way to support American made, but look for a deal. Thats just it, you have to go out of your way to buy, or support US made products, let alone spend a few bucks more. People are lazy and cheap...sorry to be a downer, but its the fucking truth. Big biz is easy to avoid but buying china junk you gotta make a true effort and spend the extra 10 bucks...ill bet people convince themselves they "Buy American" but drive a fucking Toyota...and fuck that excuse "its more American than your Ford" i say fuck you, you are the reason it is you fucking puke. Thank god for Bail Outs...i spent mine on vintage iron.
