    Re: Should American flags be made only in America?

    does it really matter? what USA will gain by that?

    If they import the flag means they need a proper textile to make it.

    Russia import oranges and most of fruits coz the climate there is not appropriate.

    All EU import coffea from Brazil coz the land and climate is more appropiate there.

    It's not such a big deal imo.

    You do know that's a contradiction no?

    And China is not Communist.

    I read through this thread and just feel well..disappointed. There is a great disconnect Americans seem to have with jobs what simple things like getting American people jobs making American flags. Obviously the US government, states, NASA, and the military think it is a big enough deal because they receive all of their flags from a company called Annin & Co. flags based out of New Jersey, and has manufacturing in Ohio and Virginia as well.

    I think they should only be made in private prisons here in the good ol USA.

    Doesn't matter, I only ask that they be of high quality.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Me too! Esp. the flag. Also what about these USA pride T-Shirts? Wearing them to support our country but they are made frigging overseas.

    I thought you said it was all about respect for the flag rather than protectionism. Make up your mind.

    Obviously the US government, states, NASA, and the military think it is a big enough deal because they receive all of their flags from a company called Annin & Co. flags based out of New Jersey, and has manufacturing in Ohio and Virginia as well.
    I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that the two most powerful congressmen are from Ohio and Virginia, and is strictly based on what's in the best interests of the American people.

    The USA would gain putting more folks back in the work force as they would probably create more factory jobs to make these flags. Anything that gets our citizens back to work right now? I support!

    Damn all this shipping our jobs overseas. We should make it so costly on these big biz. that ship out jobs overseas that they will find it best to keep the work here at home where it should be.
