Buy American: I want to say, with sincerity and honesty, that I truly apologize to anyone I offend with this message, including many friends and wonderful church friends, but I won’t apologize for my opinion. Those of you who buy Japanese cars are putting self before country. Because of where the car was made, precious American money went to Japan. Our beloved country is in a tight financial battle, and we need to keep American dollars here. In March we bought a used Pontiac and the first thing I told the salesman was to not show me a Japanese car. It’s very upsetting to me when I park at a supermarket lot or a mall, then start walking toward the store and get the feeling I’m in Tokyo. Sadly, I simply do not understand Americans anymore. One might excuse those 40 and younger, as they know so little of the things our country has gone through. But those of us who remember World War II and Korea (where I served) we know Americans had to go through tough times.
