Support who?...

To those who purchase these magnetic "Support Our Troops" car stickers: did you check where this item was made when you bought it? Have you noticed that most all of them are now made in China? How does this support our troops? Who is it supporting? Do you realize that many of our military families are buying important supplies for their family members who are overseas fighting because our government isn't outfitting them properly? Washington puts up big numbers for military spending, but the money goes to the big weapons-makers, it goes to corporate.

This reminds me of a little American flag my daughter got around the time of 9/11. I didn't think anything of it until I looked a little closer at the flag. And, up along the side, vertically, is printed "Made in China". And as I read this, and looked at the American flag, I said to myself, something is really wrong here. People can't even buy flags that are made in America from a factory that will pay its workers a decent wage and provide them with decent benefits. Something is wrong.
