Amazon, WalMart, any of the big box places, probably none of them are my friend. I've got so many places on my boycott list, there's really nowhere else to go.

Even boycotting products from countries not on my approved list... If I stick to my principles, I can buy almost nothing. So I'm to the point, I buy Chinese products while boycotting Vietnamese products. They are all the enemy.

But I recently bought commie cigars rolled in Cuba.

Like so many others, I rationalize what I'm buying, and from where.

And buying American? I try. I have fewer and fewer American made choices.

Is it best to buy a Dodge or Ford made in Mexico, or a Hyundai or Toyota made in the USA?

Wayno: Good Post!

My Dodge is made in the USA, with an Italian Engine and a German transmission. Meanwhile, the VW Passat is made in TN by American Workers. Or Mercedes has a multi million dollar investment (or more) n Alabama.

You're right, which is best?

Nope, they rule the cheap Chinese junk throwaway market and wait until they build their brick and mortar stores, Walmart may have to go back to selling American made. Albeit with cheap illegal migrant labor.
Interesting tidbit I learnt yesterday, Berkshire Hathaway owns Walmart. (Warren Buffett) it explains a lot.
Please don't insult poor cheap illegal migrant labor.... don't you know..they are "New Americans".
