One Hundred and fifty percent I do agree.
The saying was Kmart fall apart, if you remember.
I have spent more time accumulating tools of all sorts than any other collection I have.
Of course I have hard core kitchen tools as well, but I can build and or repair quite alot.
Do I have it all, heck no but someday I will.
We have become a disposable crap buying society, but I for one will not participate.
Off/on topic personal rant but true story:
Just last night, the wife and I had a small tiff.
The family xmas party is this weekend, although I'm no cristian I go to support my wife and her misguided ideas.
We have a gift exchange and the rule is we pick one person out of the hat last year and this year we get that person a gift around ten bucks...
What a waste in my eyes, but I was asked what I want, I replied "I don't but if you must, it better not have anything stamped on it other than Made
I said if it does, I will promptly take it to the front yard and burn said trash, I feel all of this crap we buy is killing us literally.
So, the wife got angry with me, she's over it now....christians have to forgive if you ask them....suckers!!!
We need to start manufacturing things here in the US or the dreams our forefathers had and built will die.
Plain as that.
