Made in America…

John Smith started the day early

having set his alarm clock

(MADE IN JAPAN )

for 6 am.

While his coffeepot

(MADE IN CHINA )

was perking, he shaved with his electric razor

(MADE IN HONG KONG )

He put on a dress shirt

(MADE IN SRI LANKA ),

designer jeans

(MADE IN  SINGAPORE )

and tennis shoes

(MADE IN KOREA )

After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet

(MADE IN INDIA )

he sat down  with his calculator

(MADE IN MEXICO )

to see how much he could spend today.

After setting his watch

(MADE IN TAIWAN )

to the  radio

(MADE IN INDIA )

he got in his car

(MADE IN GERMANY )

filled it with GAS

(from Saudi Arabia )

and continued his search for a good paying

AMERICAN JOB.

At the end of yet another discouraging and  fruitless day

checking his Computer

(made in MALAYSIA ),

John decided to relax for a while.

He put  on his  sandals

(MADE IN  BRAZIL ),

poured himself a glass of wine

(MADE IN FRANCE )

and turned on his TV

(MADE IN INDONESIA ),

and then wondered why he can't

find a good paying job

(in AMERICA)

AND NOW HE'S HOPING HE CAN GET HELP FROM A PRESIDENT

( MADE IN   KENYA)

(Not sure who to credit for this...just another mass communication worth posting here)
