More and more toys and other items are recalled all the time. Americans are out of jobs. Put two and two together and give back the job to American people! American people--you need to do something, too! Stop buying these items! If you do, guess what? They will stop making the toys in China! American people, are stupid or what?

Hate to see 11 million toys being taken back. Imagine the screamin' tantrums from the children! Sometimes it works to 'Buy American', other times that is hard to do, so we do not always know where things are made. The economy also drives the way people buy. Many items are less expensive if they are not American made, and that is good for the budget. Labor unions will occasionaly push the idea of buying American, but the labor unions are one of the biggest reasons that some American goods lack quality. Americans are not stupid. American leadership has been pushing everything global for a lot of years, and now there is plenty of room for regret. djbtol

Most toys are labeled where they are made. I rarely find a toy not made in China. It is very hard for me to buy a toy.

Alright, then here is the plan. I will have to buy more toys and be more mindful of the 'made in' clues. Do I want to buy 'made in (some other country than US)'? Not really, but sometimes convenience and cost trump other decisions.
