This is a little off topic, but oh well. My wife and I recently redid my sons room. I'm notorious for checking everything I buy to see where it's made. Naturally finding things made in the USA is increasingly more difficult. This annoys my wife to no end, mainly because I complain about it all the time
We went to buy his bed, which is a really cool platform bed. In the showroom there was no way to check to see where it was made and I assumed it was in another country. When I got it home and was carrying the 4 rather large boxes into the house, I practically had a heart attack when the boxes were stamped with the "Proudly made in the USA" that is so rarely seen anymore.
On another side note. I found some old newspapers from the early 80's. In them was a ad for a VHS player. I can't remember the brand, but it was $650
and each VHS movie was $60. I think that kind of confirms, in a sense, the claim that we want things cheaper.
