People are going to shop where they can afford the merchandise and what is nearest to them.
Some people don't have the luxury to live close to towns/cities that offer a diverse shopping area.
Yes, it is sad that many companies that WERE using "made in America" early on in their years and are now going to the overseas markets, but that's business. Yes, it is taking jobs out of the American's hands, but when they can get the same item made for much less, then that's what they do. It's business.
Everyone has their own opinions about what is right and what is wrong. We agree to disagree on many things in life, that's what makes us all unique. It would be an awful world if everyone agreed on the same things, did the same things and thought the same way.
I don't think anyone is intentionally saying anything to hurt someones feelings, I think they are just saying what they believe.
We all have our opinions. Whether others agree or disagree with us...no one can either say they are right or wrong.
I, for one, am putting this thread to "bed".
