Article that was forwarded to me. I wonder how many of us are guilty of
this, without even thinking.

John Doe started the day early having set his alarm clock (Made in Japan)
for 6 a.m.  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) and continued his search
for a good-paying American job.  At the end of yet another discouraging and
fruitless day, 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.
