Re: *Craftsman*

It used to be that when manufacturing jobs were first sucked away from the American worker, to soften the blow, products would say "Assembled in...". Now that it's a common fact that we don't make hardly anything, to soften the blow they now add on to the end, hoping you stop reading at "Made in USA" they say with parts from anywhere but the USA". Oops, I mean "global parts". I never made bicycles for my kids nor did I claim to be a bicycle manufacturer. But I did assemble them all on Christmas eve. I guess my kids' bicycles were "Made by dad (insert my picture) with global parts" We are living in the wonderful world of smoke and mirror deception
