OT Where did this come from?

After kicking around Yankee Tims 99 page post on buying American, the wife and I started looking at lables. Last night we went to our farivite Japaneese resturant. This is how it went.
Chopsticks, made by some lumber co. in the pacific northwest

Kerin beer, brewed by Budwiser
Shrimp, Crayfish and mussles caught in the gulf
Clams, Lobster and white fish, from the east coast
Salmon and Tuna, from the pacific coast
Rice, grown in the heartland
Wasabi, once only grown in Japan, now grown in Oregon
And lastly some hot sake, brewed and bottled in the Napa valley
Talk about an American meal

Unlike Mickey Ds who, I think, gets the bulk of their beef from Argentina.

So they are using beef now...? I thought it was saw dust and meal worms and 25% beef (perhaps from Argentina?) I feel better about that now. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

The Pagoda

Yeah, I went into the Pagoda of China (opps, I mean Wal-Mart) and actually bought a much-maligned Fram oil filter (NO, not the bottom of the line) and, boy, was I floored to see it was made in the U.S.A.! YEA! Made my day.

Yeah, my wife wanted me to cut down on red meat. So I started eating hamburgers at McDonalds...

Re: OT Where did this come from?

I bought the book Yankee Tim mentioned.[img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

The main point is <font color="red">where is company from?</font color> It's great that the chopsticks were made in the northwest but if the company that makes them is Japanese owned.....close but no cigar!


BEST: American owned &amp; made
Next: American owned/foreign made
Next: Foreign owned/American made
Last: Foreign owned/Foreign made

The premise is American companies pay far more taxes that benefit our whole economy more than a foreign owned factory in the USA. Even if the American company uses foreign labor. Interesting.
