And Now, A Word From Our Sponcer: The Man Who Invented the Jump Shot

Nobody Flashes

Often times, the ones who invent something never really get the credit for it, so for the man who invented the jump shot, recognition was a long time coming. Kenny is a simple man, who invented a way to solve a problem…and it became part of the game.

The end of the story is filled with wisdom, for all the men and women who live silently knowing they contributed to the world, and never blew their own horn about it.

It’s a great story to start off the week.

Enjoy!

Nobody Remembers the Great Breitbart.

Nobody Remembers

Was Breitbart killed by Obama? Did some secret agent slip something in a drink he was having at the bar that night?

We will never know. But, I can only imagine what kind of trouble he would be giving Obama NOW. He was fearless, and his death, was a great loss.

And Nobody Remembers him…on the anniversary of his death…in honor.

Nobody’s Email: Hey there nobodies– Buy ‘Made in the USA’!

Nobody Gets Email

Here’s something I don’t think about much, I admit. When I go shopping I’m usually in such a rush I don’t bother to take the time to read the labels.  Maybe we should demand “Made in the USA” to be included on all our products. After reading this reminder, I’m going to start checking.

ACE HARDWARE–Made in the USA

Costco sells Goodyear wiper blades for almost half the price that you will pay on the outside and they are made in the U.S.A.USA jobs

Unfortunately our politicians and top CEO’s (GE etc.( have pushed for trade to China and Mexico for years so Americans are now out of work. Did you know that there is no electric coffee maker made in the US and that the only kitchen appliances made in the U.S. is Viking?

I didn’t know Hallmark Cards were made in China! That is also why I don’t buy cards at Hallmark anymore, they are made in China and more expensive. I buy them at the Dollar Tree-50 cents and each made in the USA.

I have been looking at the blenders available on the internet. Kitchen Aid is made in the US. Top of my list already.

Yesterday I was in Wal Mart looking for a wastebasket. I found some made in China for $6.99. I didn’t want to pay that much so I asked the lady if they had any others. She took me to another department and they had some at $2.50 made in the USA. They are just as good. Same as a kitchen rug I needed. I had to look, but I found some made in the USA  and they were $3.00 cheaper.

We are being brainwashed to believe that everything that comes from China and Mexico is cheaper. Not so. I was Lowe’s the other day and just out of curiosity, I looked at hose attachments. They were all made in China. The next day I was in Ace Hardware and just for the heck of it I checked the hose attachments there. They were made in the USA.

Start looking people. In our current economic situation, every little thing we buy or do affects someone else–most often their job.Hershey's

My grandson likes Hershey’s candy. I noticed though that it is now marked “made in Mexico.” I don’t buy it anymore.

My favorite toothpaste Colgate is made in Mexico. Now I have switched to Crest.

You have to read the labels.

This past weekend I was at Kroger…I needed 60W light bulbs and Bounce dryer sheets. I was in the light bulb aisle, and right next to GE brand I normally buy, was an off-brand labeled “Everyday Value.” I picked up both types of bulbs and compared them: they were the same except for the price….

The GE cost more than the Everyday Value that are made right here.

So on to the next aisle, Bounce Dryer Sheets.  Yes, you guessed it. Bounce costs more money and is made in Canada. The Everyday Value brand costs much less and is made in the USA.  I did laundry yesterday AND the dryer sheets performed just like the Bounce Free I have been using for years, at almost half the price.jobs chart

MY CHALLENGE TO YOU Is to start reading the labels when you shop for everyday things and see what you can find that is made in the USA. The job you save may be your won or your neighbor’s!

If you accept the challenge pass this on to OTHERS in your address Book so we can ALL start buying American, one light bulb at a time!

Stop buying from overseas companies–you’re sending the jobs there. We should have awakened a decade ago.

Let’s get with the program and help our fellow Americans keep their jobs and create more jobs here in the USA.
