As the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods -- merchandise that has been produced at the expense of American labor.
This year can be different. This year Americans can give the gift of genuine concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by American hands. Yes there is!
It's time to think outside the box.
~How about gift certificates from your local American hair salon or barber?
~Who wouldn't appreciate getting their bike detailed?
~How many people couldn't use an oil change for their motorcycle, done at a shop run by the American working guys?
~Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands.
Christmas is about Christ and caring about one another. Encouraging local small businesses shows we care about our American brothers and sisters, our community and our neighbors. The benefits come back to us in ways we couldn't even imagine.
Please stop by this holiday season and get your favorite rider a gift certificate! Thanks for your support and freindship.
