I was talking to my mother on the phone and it reminded me of something I noticed the other day. You know those little ribbon decals that MOST people have on the backs, sides, or someplace on their vehicles??? They may say "Support Our Troops", "God Bless America", or just say "USA" with the decoratice American Flag as a backing. Well anyway...did any of you also know that most if not all of them damn things are made in Taiwan or China or some other foreign country. I bought one the other day and as I was opening it, it said "Made in Taiwan"!!! I nearly wanted to throw it down and stop it, but never-the-less, it is now stuck to the back of my pick-up. I guess its what it says that matters, but the thought that I bought something that is supporting our American Troops verbally, but is really supporting Taiwan financially that pisses me off! But then like my mother said....most of the American Flags you buy now days also are made in some foreign country as well! Disgracefull!!! I'm not against the little ribbon decals, cause most people who buy them buy them with good thoughts and the intent of truely supporting our country, but just a little fact I thought I'd share about them. The End.
