    Just. Buy. American.

    If half the parts are not American, do your research. The fact remains to still buy American and support those in America that you wish to support. Quit getting all analytical on my ***.

    You know full well what I was getting at, Doc.

    Just. Buy. American.

    This is the best way to keep the money flowing in our economy.

    I figure a good start would be to completely avoid foreign junkyards like Harbor Freight. I can't see myself ever setting foot in one of their stores ever again once we can get out and about again. Made in USA or go without; no exceptions.

    Sorry dad.

    Oh, Listen here mister. We got no way of understandin' this world. But we got as much sense of this bird flyin in the sky. Now there is a lot that bird don't know, but it don't change the fact that the world is happening to him all the same. What I am tryin to say is, is that the course of your life, well its changing, and you don't even see it- Forest Bondurant

    A nontrivial quest, I reckon.

    I doubt that there is anything that's 100% "American-made" (i.e., down to the bits and pieces and parts, cases, hardware, wire, finish materials, etc.) in 2020 AD -- which has interesting and amusing consequences for stuff belonging to, say, the armed forces, CIA, NSA, and whatnot. :|

    EDIT: (again, just speculating, but...) I would further posit that anything that might be "100% American made" involves at least some machines and tools in its design, packaging, and construction that weren't, and likely couldn't (in 2020 AD) be made in America.

    Not that I think any of this is good -- but it's life in 2020.
    I just wish Converse All-Stars were still around, the ones made in in Lumberton, NC. And maybe some decent Hanes undershirts.

    If you made $98,999.99 you get a small check. Make one red cent more and you get nothing. On the bright side the debt created will be shared equally amongst every American present and future.

    For multiple generations to come. This is unsustainable.

    I thought about a subscription to Tidal....what is it like 10 bucks a month?

    Tidal is four dollars for four months right now.
    Just be sure to cancel before your four months are up or you will start paying regular prices.

    This guy got a surprise when he went to get some cash after his stimulus payment was deposited! It was quickly corrected! :smile:
