    Now this isnt meant to be a debate or turn into one.

    I love my Shakespeare rods but sometimes I wish I could do more to help by buying American.

    I propose that all the brothers and sisters here get together and we will compile a list of everyday and useful products made in the country.

    Clorox cleaners (bunch of their mops and stuff are not)
    Dollar General brand Shaving Creams
    Mr Clean cleaners
    Liquid plumber

    I will add to the list later but you all get the jest of it I am sure.Will post again with more things I find.

    Do it sinker molds. Denver Iowa
    The custom cabinets that come from my shop. Stacy, MN.
    I have many pieces of woodworking machinery that were made in the USA.
    River Pro boats. Hillsboro Missouri.
    Scotch tape and 3M sand paper St. Paul MN
    As well as a lot of other 3M products.
    There are to many to list made in USA items that surround you and I in our daily lives.
    The only way we are going to keep it that way is insist on made in USA.
    Minnesota just past a law that all American flags sold in Minnesota must be made in USA. You would be surprised how many are made elsewhere.
    Now if more states would pass laws to mandate other things be made in USA if sold in the USA we might be able to put everybody back to work.

    LOL, yes I know many are made overseas. There are still CO's that make them here. One is Annin & Company who has made American Falgs in the USA since 1847. I think they still sale them at Lowe's and of course, can be order.

    The 2 I have , I forgot CO name who made them, its on flag and says made in USA, not imported to the USA. trust me, I'm 100% sure they were both Made in America. My dad made sure of the first one, I made sure of the second one. Would have to open my safe where I keep them and unfold them to find out the Co. name.
    Both Flags was draped over a Casket.

    Walmart aint all bad. I was in Walmart the other day and checking out in the garden department.
    I decided I needed a new pair of long handled pruners and a new pruning saw.
    40 bucks later I went home with 2 Fiskers products made in the USA.
