Get Used to It

When I ordered this UV-C light last week, Amazon was limiting the quantity to 1. While this is now “currently unavailable”, note the wording:

Currently unavailable.
We don’t know when or if this item will be back in stock.

We will be seeing this notice everywhere in the future. While I never took advantage of a bad situation to benefit me financially, the country must consider rebuilding our manufacturing base. We have no other options but to pull ourselves up by the bootstraps and ensure our economy is reliant only on us.

I’ve always believed in self-sufficiency. Individuals, families, counties, states, nations. If you have to import it, it becomes a limiting factor to your independence (however you define it). We need an industrial base, a mining & refining base, and an agricultural base to sustain our country, and not be dependent on others….. as much as possible.

I have a neighbor who works for a roofing company. He said that his company’s employees that do the actual work are all Hispanic.

I said, “Of course, they are. They work for less. If you hired others you would have to pay more, your bids would be higher, and you would lose the work.” He didn’t disagree.

While it is an excellent idea to return manufacturing to this country, as long as foreign-made cheaper products are available at Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Harbor Freight, etc., etc. etc., Joe Six-Pack will buy them instead of American-made products.

As long as Joe Six-Pack’s particular job isn’t threatened, he wants to buy the cheapest product out there. “I gotta think about me and muh famlee.” I expect that I am just as guilty.

Unless and until we take away the China option (or Vietnamese option, or Indian option or…) from the American consumer, the situation will continue.
