    Re: Do you look to see where stuff you buy is made? Do you try to buy American?

    There are some non-USA brands that I luv but in everyday shopping? I try to buy made in the U.S.A which is kinda hard to do if you are on a tight budget.

    Also there is that saying some people got more money than they got sense. I find it true. There are a few brands I love but will never understand people who are love to be walking buildboards just because.

    Whenever I buy a large ticket item I buy American, I'm not as good at doing so on minor purchases.
    Except for a volkswagen jetta I had in College, all of my cars are either Ford/Chevy.

    I buy quality, I don't care where it comes from and I don't even look. All things being equal though, two identical items at identical prices, with big signs saying where they were made, I'd probably pick the American-made product, but I wouldn't seek it out.

    I support competition and the free market. If American products want to survive, they need to compete. If they cannot or will not, they don't deserve to survive.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Do you look to see where stuff you buy is made? Do you try to buy American?

    My shopping trip consists of two boys and one girl. One of the boys has to pee at least twice in any store (its like a dog marking its territory) and the other boy is usually asking a million questions. The girl is two, so she often falls asleep in the van while we go to the store.

    Usually I am happy just to buy anything at all.

    To be honest I always try to buy European.. After US reactions to 911, I have chosen to silently avoid American products whenever I can.

    I try to buy American made products as often as possible. This can mean that I don't buy from American companies though.

    The parts, patents, and labor that go into making almost everything you own were probably made in many differant countries. It's almost impossible to buy American, European, or Chinese anymore. If it weren't, I still wouldn't care.
