Please visit this website to listen to and view a slide show of the song “Made in China”.

I wrote the lyrics to this song over the last two and ½ years [on and off].

I am passionate about the message of the song’s lyrics. It is about a man who lost his job and now works at the local Walmart and needs to work a second job at the local convenience store. His wife works mostly for health benefits. They barely have time to talk. They are having a hard time and everywhere they turn they see stuff made in China.

I wanted this song to say a lot and be a protest type song. Maybe the Occupy Movement can use it at a rally.

I hope it instills the same passion in you.

If you like it please feel free to pass it on to others.

Thanks for your time.

You're probably confused by Thoms incorrect ramblings on the public airwaves that manufacturing in the USA is "declining" when in fact, we make more than we ever have before and are doing so in ever increasing efficiency.

The USA is so advanced it has moved from a manufacturing society to a design, command, control, information, society. Sure, the shoes or shirt you lament were not manufactured here but they sure as hell were designed and implemented here. The question you need to ask yourself is why are you so attached to manufacturing jobs being the ultimate jobs?

Do you think that there were "hunter gatherers" who protested the move to an agricultural society? Do you think that there were people who lamented the move away from the farms to the factories in the industrial age?

There is no need to lament to USA's pioneering move into the new information age, and pine for our manufacturing past.

I guess the bankers will control the US and if they fail we will bail them out.

You should also read & Listen to David Cay Johnston along with Thom Hartmann - they both are on the same page when it come to bringing back manufacturing to the USA.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
