It's about time, folks.  Now don't start thinking this is prejudice or protectionism or all that crap.  This is about survival right now, and I personally stand up and applaud ABC for this idea-a national challenge for everyone to at least buy SOMETHING that wasn't produced in China! (I know it's gonna be tough, but we have to try!) 

I happen to be watching Diane Sawyer last nite on ABC's World News With Diane Sawyer  and they started talking about a new challenge they were putting out to all Americans.  If you missed it :

It's a very simple concept.  They are trying to get every living, breathing American citizen to do the following:

If each of us spent just $64 on American made goods during our holiday shopping, the result would be 200,000 new jobs.

And it's spreading around like wildfire.  Here's an example from a town in Vermont:

So check the tags, read the descriptions on the boxes.  Let's see if we can put some people to work!
