"Made in America"

I heard something funny the other night.

I was walking through Wal Mart while my wife was looking for some flowers/shrubs to plant at our house.  I was going to look at a magazine and heard a man talking to his mother (I assumed) and they had picked up a copy of Sam Walton's "Made in America."  Sarcastically, they said to each other, "Ha, made in China is more like it."  Like they were pissed off.

Hey, McFly, you're shopping at WAL MART!

It's funny how people can criticize business practices but have no problem taking advantage of cheap prices.

It's like all these celebrities complaining about "big business" and republicans and rich people and singing their sob stories about the poor throughout the world and how we need to take care of people and it's all the republicans' fault.  Guess what.  Maybe if you didn't make $20 million to act in a damn movie (and many times not a very good one!) some of that money would be around.

Or the complaints about tax cuts.  Hey, you don't have to take the cut.  Send all your money to the government if they will use it so much more wisely.

Sorry...got off on a rant.  I just get so frustrated when people take advantage of a company's/country's benefits and criticize the methods.  Do they do everything perfect?  Of course not.  But don't vilify them on one hand and turn around and benefit from what they provide.
