8-5-09 -- I bet you did not know this. O'Reilly sells all this American Patriot gear from the store on his website, but did you know that almost all of it is made in a foreign country, including the communist country of China. So when you buy this American Patriot merchandise you are supporting China, and Vietnam, and many other foreign countries. And the worst part is on the few items that are made in the USA, O'Reilly has a graphic of an American flag, on it he has the words "The Buck Stays Here" superimposed over an American flag.

So O'Reilly is saying the buck should stay here, he is promoting that, while the buck goes to all the foreign countries on the other 95% of the American Patriot products that are made in foreign countries. This is un-American, and just wrong, especially when our economy is in a recession. Those products should be made in the USA, so that money stays here, especially when the products say American Patriot on them.

I went through the O'Reilly store and looked at each product he sells there, and I found out it's not just the American Patriot merchandise that is made in a foreign country, it's almost every item he sells. Only a few items are made in the USA, almost all of it is manufactured in a foreign country. Here is a list of all the Factor gear, and where it was made.

Total Count -

Out of the 47 items for sale at the O'Reilly store, 39 are made in a foreign country, including China. Only 8 items are made in the USA, so the buck is not staying here, it's mostly going to the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Pakistan, and fricking China.

The worst part is that some of these products say American Patriot, and some have American flags on them, when they are not made in America, and it's sure as hell not patriotic to have those items made in a foreign country. Is it being a patriot to have American Patriot products made in foreign countries. What say you Billy?
