Outsourcing America Is Killing Our Families


    The Wellness Company I sponsor at my site is a traditional brick and mortar company where families come first.  This is because they produce non toxic safe (clean green) products with fantastic quality at a wholesale price.  With most other traditional corporate models “the consumer is outside of the retail profit partnership.”  In other words, you pay retail, they don’t share the profits.  We are paying for more cheapened and dangerous house hold products than ever before, as we loose jobs to outsourcing while making our families simultaneously and unknowingly sick.

    The retail marketing, distribution, revenues and sales models work like this:  Advertisers (TV, Radio, Print Media), Manufacturers (Procter & Gamble, Colgate Palmolive, Johnson & Johnson), and Distribution (Wal-Mart, Safeway, Kroger) consume enormous advertising, manufacturing and logistic costs to market and transport their products to your local stores.  Every time you pay retail, you pay a percentage of these other expenses, “including import taxes from products made overseas [Higher carbon foot print, fuel and shipping costs].  Overseas imports that we purchase also support unregulated carbon emissions that reach our shorelines and impact our health.  While at the same time our manufacturers get regulated to no end by our government to filter carbon emissions that also increases product costs.  Simultaneously removing us competitively out of the market for outsourced-unregulated and dangerous products.  This is a never ending economic spiral in favor of outsourced overseas products and services crippling our nation.

    The mega-monopoly corporations have no plan to partner up with struggling families to pass on “cost savings,” they simply can’t figure out what’s good for the American family, don’t care about the traditional American way of life, “or simply don’t care about the consumer for whatever reason.”  It’s about cheaper, faster, high volume production to keep investors into never ending profit gains at any cost, driven by “the almighty dollar!”  Large corporations are simply driven by greed; offer few if any environmental, healthy home solutions and are simply out of touch with the American family.  Now that our financial institutions have collapsed and the stock market has bombed… Do you think the products are going to be made any better, or safer for your families?  Will we outsource more American jobs?  Will the employment rate continue to soar?  Where will it end?  I tell you this, you can make a difference?  Don’t support your retail outlets if products aren’t make in America and/or are hazardous to your families health.

    “In my opinion the US corporations that have outsourced to foreign countries are “one” of the biggest threats to the traditional and moral fiber breakdown of our nation and “inflationary contributors” which in turn has greatly devalued the American dollar in the last 30 years.  Believe me I’m a capitalist at heart, but when the monarchs and czars remove jobs and compromise product quality the peasants become bitter and disinfranchised.  Where’s the balance? Where’s the fairness?  What is happening to the American dream?  I see dang-near 2 classes of people today, the very wealthy and not.  Since this seems to be the case, we must make due the best we know how.  The following information will provide more insight on a cost effective family plan for all your house hold and supplemental health needs.  Don’t pay outsourced retail! You don’t have to do this!

    The more products imported from foreign markets, the less buying power your hard earned dollars will provide for your family, especially in today’s economy.  If we’re not exporting (manufacturing and selling American made products abroad) and we continue importing (buying foreign manufactured products), we’re telling the international market, our stuff is crap because we prefer products out side of the U.S. Sooner or later, “our Rome will fall and we’ll be ruled by other countries!”  “Do some research on “the fall of Rome.”  We now outsource much of our nations manufacturing jobs overseas.  What’s next?  Outsourcing our military, “Can You Say Blackwater, or Halliburton.”  Rome followed a path similar to our present scenario and look what happened to them.  Rome and its culture became extinct!  Think it couldn’t happen here?  Think again!”  Most of the products you consume on a daily basis are now manufactured overseas (outsourcing as a result of global mega-conglomerate merges).  This not only takes away American jobs, but even more so then ever, the consumer “is not” and “can not” be protected by every safe consumer standard meeting FDA and other U.S. regulatory safe product requirement.

    Also, most of you are knowledgeable in the fact outsourced manufacturing occurs predominately in poor countries where poor human working conditions is the case.  This in itself is outrageous!  We don’t accept those barbaric human practices in our country, but we’ll support the continuation of those practices by shopping at Wal-Mart, etc., where almost all products now come from China.  Why do you think the products are so cheap… Child slave labor, horrible work conditions in sweat shops, etc? 

    The greatest potential risk and most grievous infraction by the mogul corporate giants is they’d have you believe they have your family’s best health interest at heart.  If you really want a good read on what’s going into our products and how big business plans to increase profits at any cost, which definitely is making our families sick… This will get your blood boiling, read “Natural Cures, By Kevin Trudeau.”  “After you get further educated on the inside strategy of our global corporate industries… Chemical, food and pharmaceutical, etc., the truth will hit you upside the head really fast.”  I thanked my mother for giving this book to me as a gift.  It opened my eyes to a world of manufacturing corruption.  I also validated information within the book by further research on the Internet to substantiate some facts I was reading.  The cheapened chemicals these corporate giants are using within our everyday home products and foods are slowly killing us.  Outsourcing our American jobs also equates to further cheapening the quality of products which are now a further health hazard. Then again as Kevin Trudeau coined quite nicely throughout the book, “It’s all about the money’ we should be “mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!”

    One example recently in the news media and I’m sure all are aware by now, “heavy lead found in toys shipped from China had recently circulated throughout our retail outlets by the 10’s or thousands of product units and have been recalled as determined a health risk for your children [Global News, 2007].”  As of 2008, this news now seems to be the norm.  It’s in the toys, the candy, home products, etc., where will it all end!  How about the multitude of health illness risk we are now exposed to and most unaware.  “Let’s keep American jobs here, produce safe healthy products for our families and return cost savings and jobs back to hard working American families.  In my opinion the Wellness Company” business model is no different then what I remembered as a kid… Old brick and mortar companies like Mongomary Wards, etc.,  that cared about American culture, the people and great American made products.  The Wellness company is a similar company from the aspect it manufactures its own entire product line, nearly 400 clean green home use and healthy products by the American people in Idaho Falls, ID. 
     Corporate business models will always follow a product demand manufacturing model. Show American corporations what services and products the American families expect and value and even the biggest corporate companies will have no choice but to stay competitive if they want to stay in business.  “No body” manufactures and produces better products in the world then the American people.  And if any big wig tells you it’s cheaper to outsource and globalize, “tell them to stuff it!”  What is cheap hazardous outsourced production doing to our food, home products, health industries, etc.?     

    Learn more about the Wellness Company & watch MAE Video’s to see how outsourced products are making Americans sick.  Let your Congressmen and Senators know you want to keep jobs in America, you want American made products.  We don’t want cheap unsafe products in our homes contaminating and making our children ill! “We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!  Do your part, buy American made products, support American jobs, put more money back into your pocket and ensure your family is consuming safe healthy products!

    If you haven’t figured it out “I’m a traditionalist that upholds the American way of life with strong conservative family values.”  Now there is a Wellness Company that values the traditional American way of life.  If more of us participated in a natural safe home product company such as this one, it now is possible to bring fantastic products, create jobs and bring “cost savings back to the consumer.
