We hear so much about the economy and jobs, and yet the real problems are left unattended. The huge businesses continue to boast big profits while they are neglecting to hire or re-hire the workers. And to really rub salt in the wound, the powers that be just keep on allowing outsourcing and terrible trade imbalances. I was in a major department store recently and was able to find only one item in the men’s section that was labeled “Made in America.” Why has this been allowed to happen? The presidents for the last several decades should have studied some of our past presidents. They would have done well to have followed James Madison’s advice, “Always buy American.” The American people should be mad as hell. Paul T. McDaniel, Auburn
