Nope. Because then the stuff becomes too expensive, and people stop buying them unless it is absolutely necessary.

Not buying a 72" TV because you don't need one, and therefore keeping that money within the borders of the US, could be considered a good thing...

Question for you: how did you feel when GW Bush told us to go shopping after 9/11?

I buy what my budget allows and sadly it isn't American. I previously said that for one single made in the USA shirt online cost the same as about three to four made elsewhere shirts in stores, BEFORE shipping.

No youíre choosing to ignore the obvious facts. Can you prove that some products Are made here in the United States? Every bolt every nut, etc. I didnít think so..

Bayside made in USA t shirts are $8 each.

Where are you buying new retail t shirts for less than $3 each?

Never heard of Bayside and they are competitive bit I see shirts in Wal-Mart, even Target are competitive if not cheaper than the Bayside shirt. I have looked at several others though and most are above $10, up to $25 for a simple plain tee shirt. All American Clothing has their basic shirt selling for $13.95 for double XL. No design, just a plain tee. About $22 after $8 basic shipping.

Prepare to be educated...

All American is rebrands. You can get the same items cheaper directly from the manufacturer.

But you don't care, you just want to repeat propaganda and run our country into the ground.

Prepre to be educated yourself, It wasn't just them. They simply were the first I found with Google searching and you can buy at least two/three shirts at most American big box stores. Most shirts are similarly priced, maybe ten dollars more though shipping is the killer. I've said this on several different thread topics with the "Why don't you buy American" topic. For most of us, it is purely economic as it isn't worth the opportunity cost to do. FYI, opportunity cost isn't just price tag and gas but also time.

But you don't care, you just want to repeat propaganda to say that those that cannot afford American made items or don't have the time to check are running our country into the ground. I'm sorry but we are all hard working Americans and hard working Americans need clothes for their bodies and a number of these brands are not worth the opportunity cost to actually buy American. Yes you are right process fluctuate, but I have seen other American shirt brands sell at similar if not higher prices. If you would look, you know I'm not blowing smoke up your ass.
