Protest Hu Jintao's Visit: Buy American

Chinese President Hu Jintao is being treated to a state dinner by our Impostor-in-Chief, Barry Soetoro.  I guess Hu should have a nice dinner while ol' Barry grovels for more Chinese investment in our government Ponzi scheme.  We ordinary Americans can protest by taking the time to boycott Chinese goods and buy American.  Not many things are actually made in this country anymore, but I have come up with a list of ten suggestions for preppers:

Ten ways that preppers can still buy American:

1)  A firearm made by Smith & Wesson, Ruger, Kel-Tec, Marlin, Mossberg, or Remington.  I'm sure that there are other domestic makers.  Just pick one.

2)  A box of ammo made by Winchester, Federal, Remington, Speer, or CCI.

3)  A knife made by Case or Bear & Sons.  Or a set for your kitchen made by Rada.  Ontario, Ka-Bar, Buck, and Gerber qualify if the knife was actually made in the USA.

4)  A holster made by El Paso Saddlery or Don Hume.

5)  A Coleman dual-fuel lantern or stove.

6)  Freeze-dried and dehydrated canned fruits, vegetables, meats, and other foods from and

7)  Food-grade five gallon storage buckets from  (the last time I ordered, the buckets and lids were both made in USA).

8)  Cast iron dutch ovens and other cookware by Lodge Manufacturing.

9)  Extra propane tanks by Worthington and Manchester, and fuel cans by Blitz and Wedco.

10)  A bottle of Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, or other American distilled libation.

Have fun!


  1. FYI Buck Knives is located in Post Falls, Idaho. They make 100% of their knives in that facility now.

  2. Anon:
    If that is true, Buck has a lot of "Made in China" product still in the pipeline. I was happy when Buck moved into the area (Post Falls is about 10 miles from where I live), but disappointed to find out how much of their product has been made in China. I know that Buck was moving a lot of their production back stateside, but I am unaware that they have closed down all of their overseas production.

    Thanks for the comment. It is nice to hear from someone else who also cares about buying American.

  3. And Buck still has a lot of stuff in stores made in China. Even 10 years ago, when they were in El Cajon, PRK (the taxes and regulations in the People's Republic of Kalifornia moved them out of their original home state), things like camp axes and Bucktools were made in Mexico (I stocked up at one of the last factory sales in the PRK, when I was still living there.)
