Made in America


Published on Nov 23, 2012 by Gabbee

Is it possible for an all-American family to live life with only all-American products?
At the request of “World News with Diane Sawyer,” one Dallas family is going to give it a try and share their experiences with the country in a special series, “Made in America,” focusing on U.S. manufacturing, jobs and what it all means for the nation’s economy. In their single-story home on Snow White Drive, the Usrys lead full and active lives. Husband Jon, 39, works as an advertising executive and wife Anna is a stay-at-home mom who’s active in community organizations. Son Landon, 7, is in first grade. Daughter Ellis, 6, is in kindergarten. And then there’s the dog, a black lab named Amber.
“Both the kids are obsessed with her,” Anna said.
Jon, Anna, Landon, Ellis and Amber have all agreed to participate in a unique experiment, emptying their living room, kitchen and master bedroom of any imported products and replacing them with items made in the U.S. From the rugs on the floors to the sheets on the bed to the TV on the wall, they’ll find out where their products came from and whether similar goods are available from U.S. manufacturers.
“I thought that Ashton Kutcher was going to be coming around the corner, we were being punked,” said Anna, recalling when she first heard ABC’s request. There are still plenty of Americans at work making consumer products. More than 11 million Americans get their paychecks from working in factories, and according to Moody’s Economy.com, if every American spent an extra $3.33 on U.S. made goods every year, it would create nearly 10,000 new jobs.

  1. I love how they think that if every American just spends $3 more on products, it would create and fund jobs. My opinion is that the 3 extra dollars would go right into the CEOs pockets and you would never see anything change because the elite won’t allow our businesses and industry to come back, no matter what you pay them. But that’s just me.

  2. 1. The BS Fed Res bogus Slave Script system.
    2. “Social” Security = Bogus BS! And what do we give up for security?
    3. Taxation, Double Taxation, Triple Taxation!!!
    4. Interpretations of what is plainly written?! Blah, blah, blah. I can go on but why preach to the choir?!
    It’s been said many many times here:
    If these states operated as originally stated with the original money system, in other words….If we stayed the course…..We wouldn’t be in this sh!t today!

  3. Several years ago as a lesson for my young nephews I challenged them to find a toy made in the USA for which they would be rewarded. All they could come up with was a deck of cards.

  4. made in america by mexican illegal invaders.

    Did I ever say my plan for deporting illegals?
    offer $5 for every head(no need to spend jeb bushes claim of $800B)
    2 heads cost .80-$2 in bullets
    $10 reward replaces entire(or more) box of ammo
    the remaining 100millions of illegals run for the border to avoid execution.

    businesses have to hire replacements(actual americans).
