Hey, it would provide some jobs for people. China's making US Flags, so let's return the favor. Hell, let's make flags for all the countries of the world and really get that job engine going!

Companies are sending factories to Asia, not vice versa. When you can pay someone 25 cents an hour , this is what happens

Id like to think, that we could change some thing to be make it easier and better for companies to make more things here. But I dont think we'll ever know, because few seem to even want to try.

Its almost painful when you buy something, to see how a majority of it is made in China or anywhere but the USA. Its just sad really, and I dont know why we dont do more to at least try and change it.

Because that would require us to stop buying stuff.

[and that is not going to happen]

With all due respect, only idiots choose to purchase US flags made in China when it is easy to purchase ones made in the USA.

American Flag and Flagpole Co | flag poles | flag pole parts | flags| flagpoles

Flag Zone - 800-976-4201

Flags USA: American Flags, Custom Flags, Promotional Products, State and ISO Flags - Flags USA Inc.

American Made Flags, Made in the USA, US Flags, Military Flags, Historic Flags


These are but a few of many, many links to US flags "made in the USA".

Thread fail. Americans are NOT stuck buying American flags from China.

I saw a very large flag display in Wal-Mart the other day and all we made in the U.S.A, from company in New Jersey.

A simple search would have saved you the embarrassment of looking like a fool.

With all due respect, I'm sure there are many people whom you would not consider idiots who have purchased US flags made in China.
