    John Smith started the day early having set hisalarm clock


    (MADE IN JAPAN ) for 6 am.



    While his
    coffeepot



    (MADE IN CHINA )



    was perking, he shaved with his



    electric razor



    (MADE IN HONG KONG )



    He put on a



    dress shirt



    (MADE IN SRI LANKA ),




    designer jeans



    (MADE IN SINGAPORE )



    and



    tennis shoes



    (MADE IN KOREA)



    After cooking his breakfast in his new



    electric skillet



    (MADE IN INDIA )



    he sat down with his



    calculator



    (MADE IN MEXICO )



    to see how much he could spend today. After setting his

    watch

    (MADE IN TAIWAN )


    to the
    radio
    (MADE IN INDIA )

    he got in his
    car
    (MADE IN GERMANY )


    filled it with
    GAS
    (from Saudi Arabia )


    and continued his search


    for a good paying
    AMERICAN JOB.

    At the end of yet another
    discouraging

    and
    fruitless day

    checking his

    Computer
    (made in MALAYSIA ),

    John decided to relax for a while.

    He put on his
    sandals
    (MADE IN BRAZIL ),

    poured himself a glass of

    wine
    (MADE IN FRANCE )

    and turned on his

    TV
    (MADE IN INDONESIA ),

    and then wondered why he can't

    find a good paying job

    in AMERICA

    AND NOW HE'S HOPING HE CAN GET HELP FROM A



    PRESIDENT
    MADE IN KENYA

    There's a lot of truth in this (ignoring the last line). People wonder why the jobs are drying up, then they go to Wal Mart to buy the cheapest stuff they can find not caring where it came from. :frusty:
