I never buy from China unless it's my last choice, and sometimes I will forgo the purchase. If I can find a product that meets my needs and is made in the US I will buy it over less expensive brands made outside of the US...There are times you cannot find the product made in the US eg: electronics, try finding shoes or sneakers made here...When the gentleman said this evening that when you buy a product you are in essence 'voting' for products made there is not necessarily true. We just may not have a choice."

The site still has almost five thousand listings, as sellers try to beat the deadline.

It looks like SPAM will soon be a criminal offense in Virginia. Lawmakers passed a bill making it a misdemeanor to send unsolicited junk e-mail... most offenses would be misdemeanors, but some spammers could face felony charges.
