My wife and I had a discussion about the U.S. economy and how we should do as much as we can to improve it. She suggested that I try to purchase items "Made in the U.S.A."

While this may be difficult I know that it's not impossible. I just don't know where and what brands are made here that would be considered good quality.

I'm on a total economic embargo of US products. So long as Barack Obama is in office and his policies planning on taxing me, i'm going to make it hard for him to generate revenue for his asinine "wealth distribution" plans. And i'm leaving all tips on my credit card so his waitresses are forced to report it as income.

Thanks for the pointer on Leather Good Connection. I'll have my wife get me a new wallet from there this Christmas.

I suppose Hillary Clinton would be associated with me since she took an advanced bonus from her company before her husbands tax policy kicked in?

My choice to not partake in Obama's socialist-like economic policy is not "un-educated" its to strictly make a point. Although, i really havent stuck to it since I just bought 2 Robert Talbott ties, but its the thought that counts.
