There was a time when that was THE catch phrase because just about everything was made here. But over the past fifty years or so that has changed. Just look at all those container ships sitting in the Pacific waiting to unload hundreds of millions of products destined for stores all across the country and your home. While so much of what we buy and use comes from China and other foreign countries, there are still many who have never left or outsourced their production to other countries.
