Made In the USA 2015

Made in the USA” means that “all or virtually all” the product was, indeed, made in America according to the Federal Trade Commission. The agency enforces the standard to ensure commercial compliance and confirm consumer confidence.

For a “Made in the USA” claim to be accurate, all significant parts, processing and labor that go into the product must be of U.S. origin. Products should not contain any — or only negligible — foreign content. http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/alerts/alt021.shtm

  3. White House tree to come from Pennsylvania

    November 09, 2015 philly.com

    As you ponder whether to serve a 15-pound turkey or a 20-pounder for Thanksgiving, brothers Jay and Glenn Bustard are already preparing for Christmas – in 2022.

    The Bustards are third-generation Christmas tree growers. What they plant as a seedling today takes a good seven years to mature into a respectable 7-footer.

    Optimists that they are, even they couldn’t imagine that a Fraser fir planted in 2001 at their farm in Lehighton, Carbon County, would sprout to a national standout. On Sept. 30, it was selected the official 2015 White House Christmas tree.

    At 181/2 feet tall and 11 feet wide, the tree will be on display in the Blue Room, where, unlike the typical home, there is no forgiveness for imperfect sides. No hiding them in a corner.

    “It goes in the middle of the Blue Room,” said Jay Bustard, 60, of Gilbertsville, who handles the office side of Bustard’s Christmas Trees, which sells about 7,000 a year. He also runs an advertising firm.

    The head green thumb at Bustard’s is Glenn, 52, who lives with their mother, Virginia, at the family home in Worcester, also the site of one of the family’s two retail lots. He has a landscaping business, too.

    The road to the First Family’s residence ran through Spring Grove, Ill., where a blue-tinged, 7-foot, 11-inch Douglas fir grown in Worcester earned Bustard’s Grand National Champion honors at the National Christmas Tree Association’s competition in July. To get there, Bustard’s won a state contest in Harrisburg in January with a Lehighton-grown Meyer spruce.

    Amid a sharp decline nationwide in Christmas tree farms – 14,000 in 2012, down from 21,000 in 2002, the most recent census figures show – Bustard’s operates three in Pennsylvania and one in Canada to gain access to soil types and climates needed for its dozen tree varieties.

    Victory at nationals qualified Bustard’s for White House consideration, with no guarantee that any of its trees would be selected. Its Fraser fir will be the 50th tree going to the White House since harvesting them from the National Christmas Tree Association’s grand-champion winners began in 1966, said Rick Dungey, executive director of the trade group.

    “It’s the pinnacle of our industry,” Dungey said.

    Published on Nov 27, 2015

    This week, the President wrapped up his trip to Asia — a cross-continental journey that took him to Antalya, Manila, and concluded in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He honored Medal of Freedom recipients back at the White House, and pardoned a couple of lucky turkeys before Thanksgiving. That’s November 20 to November 26 or, “This Turkey is Hereby Pardoned.”

    Statement by the President

    The last thing Americans should have to do, over the holidays or any day, is comfort the families of people killed by gun violence — people who woke up in the morning and bid their loved ones goodbye with no idea it would be for the last time.

    And yet, two days after Thanksgiving, that’s what we are forced to do again.

    We don’t yet know what this particular gunman’s so-called motive was for shooting twelve people, or for terrorizing an entire community, when he opened fire with an assault weapon and took hostages at a Planned Parenthood center in Colorado. What we do know is that he killed a cop in the line of duty, along with two of the citizens that police officer was trying to protect. We know that law enforcement saved lives, as so many of them do every day, all across America. And we know that more Americans and their families had fear forced upon them.

    This is not normal. We can’t let it become normal. If we truly care about this — if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience — then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough.

    May God bless Officer Garrett Swasey and the Americans he tried to save — and may He grant the rest of us the courage to do the same thing.

      Statement by Vice President Biden on the shooting in Colorado Springs

      Last night it was confirmed that four more young children spent their Thanksgiving holiday without their mother and father who were shot and killed by a gunman and hostage-taker in Colorado Springs. Jennifer Markovsky was 34. Beloved daughter and friend. A military spouse. Mother of a young son and daughter. Ke’Arre Stewart was 29. Iraq war veteran. Husband, father of two young daughters. Swore an oath to defend this country. Just like police officer Garrett Swasey, 44, who was also gunned down. Father of a young son and daughter. Loved his family, faith, and his calling to serve and protect his community. Jill and I are thinking of each of them and their families.

  8. Girls about town! Sasha and Malia hit the shops with Dad as he buys ‘Diary of Wimpy Kid’, ‘Dork Diaries’ and novels by Jonathan Franzen and Salman Rushdie

    28 November 2015 By ASSOCIATED PRESS and DAILYMAIL.COM REPORTERS

    President Barack Obama took his teenage daughters Malia and Sasha shopping on Saturday for books and a sweet treat to promote Small Business Saturday, an annual event designed to boost holiday shopping at mom-and-pop shops.

    In the tiny Upshur Street Books in northwest Washington, the casually dressed Obama and his daughters browsed for books with the help of the store manager, Anna Thorn.

    The post-Thanksgiving book-browsing outing has become an annual tradition for the First Family.

    On Saturday in the softly lit shop adorned with Christmas lights, excited employees mingled next to platters of colorful cupcakes. Outside, cheery store windows featured books of fairy tales and a green handwritten ‘Shop Local’ sign. The bookstore opened last November.
