Tough Times and a Way to Make it Better

Just about everyone who reads my blog knows I'm fighting to survive in these tough economical times. I'm having to do all kinds of creative and inventive things just to pay the bills, and yet, I consider myself lucky. I have a roof over my head and food to eat. I also have a lot of good friends, angels I call them, who have kept me from sinking into the abyss.

I find myself wondering how we're going to get out of this low place we've found ourselves in. Then I remember something I've heard my whole life -- support American made products. It's nothing against the rest of the world, but right now, America is struggling, so doesn't it make sense to support our own businesses, at least until we get back on our feet? If we don't help ourselves, we won't be able to help anyone else.

While surfing the web, I learned about a company that is extremely patriotic. The company is called American Button Machines. They do more than just wave the flag. It's an American-based business with American employees and a product that is produced only in the United States.

This company makes buttons, and boy do they have a lot of buttons available. We all love buttons! They aren't just for elections and conventions, but for all kinds of celebrations, marketing events, and even for showing your support of your favorite celebrity. I highly suspect we'll be seeing buttons of the new First Dog, Bo, very soon. If you need buttons for your business or just for a special event, you might want to check out this company's website.

American Button Machines has a great button machine blog, too, that gives tips and helps folks to make their own buttons. It sounds like a lot of a fun and a good site to check out. After all, if you feel like you need to support America, like you need to do something to help us in the long way, supporting a U.S. business like American Button Machines would be a solid way of doing so.
