"Made In The USA"

Those who read this blog are aware that I usually try to buy American, if possible, after all the Chinese, Mexicans etc are not paying into the United States Social Security Fund so why cut my throat by buying foreign. Yesterday found me in front of a display of Pens (writing pens) in search of what may be offered as "Made In The USA". Yes it was difficult, pens seem to be made in France, China, Japan and "assembled In Mexico" but few in my price range are "Made In The USA." I finally found a Pilot G-2 07 Gel Pen that had on the package "Made In The USA". Even with the Pilot pens most models are made elsewhere but maybe the company thought it had to have a token "Made In The USA" version for sale since they were selling in America.
