In 2000 I went to the Decatur Walmart and saw a waffle iron for five dollars, but instrad of Japan, it was made in China. I said, "geesh, if the US and Walmart start flooding our markets with Chinese imports, our unemployment and economy is doomed". Fast forward: record unemployment, highest decentralization of wealth, downtowns deserted, record national debt. The solution isn't Obama or Romney, but an America that believes "shopping local" means buying and building things made locally, not buying Chinese stuff sold locally!
8:31 for President!
This week's issue is a waste of money. Nothing but features about Rhome animals pooing, or people complaining about Rhome and it's city council wanting to fund more waste to keep council members reelected. Letter to editor is a real slap exposing waste. Rhome resident complains about lack of volunteers. Maybe they should recruit at the jail according to the last article done on them and the theft. What a wheels off town.

831 Little simplistic but a good deal of truth to it. Try to find shoes, electronics,household appliances etc etc etc made in U.S. And please save the unions are the cause whining. Unions have little power today in most aspects of the economyand have been losing power and making concession after concession the past decade. Yes I am aware of Chicago but one of the few strikes around nowadays.
WAL MART STARTED OUT SELLING ALMOST NOTHING BUT AMERICAN MADE,WHEN THE WALTON FAMILY SOLD OUT THAT ALL CHANGED AND NOW YOU CANT FIND MADE IN AMERICA.WHAT A SHAME
Why do we not manufacture goods in the U.S.A.? Because we are losing our economic freedom, declinig from #3 to #18. Too much regulations, deficts, labor unions, not following the law and property rights, terrorism, drugs and not protecting bondholders in the GM bailout has dropped us under Chili for economic freedom.For anyone thinking our quality of life is not affected by lack of economic freedom, they only need to look at other countries who are lower on the list! The extreme Left and extreme Right is to blame since they can't govern. We need a third party to represent all of us moderates. Congress can't function to deal with any of our economic problems.
The Government lets foreign companies use tax loopholes to set up shop here.
Why would Rhome hire a guy to play fireman that doesn't even have the basic certifications required for a paid firefighter in Texas. Not to mention one that has been proven to be a workers comp liability. That money might be better spent researching why that department has the lowest membership and worst reputation in the whole county. Hey I know, let's pay the guy to keep doing a crappy job.
Lot of hating on Rhome here. You guys need to hold hands at the city park and smoke a fatty to Ronnie Moores version of Kumbaya.
11:52 what are you talking about? I have heard a lot of underhanded stuff about Rhome in general. I was told the council turns a blind eye to this.
