Buy American, Buy Local

Jeff over at Blue & Gray Brewery has this commentary on his website:
The federal government is sending nearly each and every one of us a $600 rebate. If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China. If we spend it on gasoline it will go to Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, or Canada, if we purchase a computer it will go to India, if we purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala, if we purchase a good car it will go to Japan, if we purchase useless stuff it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy.

The only way to keep that money here at home is to buy beer, since it is the only product still produced in the US. Thank you.
I like the way the man thinks.
