If Only Trump Were KING

If Only Trump Were King!
April 27, 2011 Trump claimed he could beat Obama to be President.
First day he would take on China and impose a 25% tax of all imports.
Then he would tame OPEC and take control of the oil market.
If only Trump Could Be King
But this is the U.S.A. 
Can’t happen. 
Even if he is elected President in 2012, he would not have the power to change much.

Our government is needed for Law and Order, but government trying to manage the economy is the biggest disaster of all.   

A new choice we can all make today….
Stop exporting our money and jobs buying cheap imports in the big box stores.
Choose to use local resources to support the local economy, jobs and lifestyles.
Promote local fresh food, wood products, biofuels and waste energy recovery.

Can I compete with Cheap Chinese flooring?

Can a Small Business Compete with China?
My wood flooring business competes directly with China every day!
Cheap imported wood flooring is flooding the U.S. market right now.
Most people just want cheap and convenient - at this moment.

I think LOCAL, use what I have right here that fills a local need.
I have to Be SMART, Flexible, Fast
I tell my local story every chance I get
Educating the consumer is a constant effort
I cut out all the middlemen/brokers/shippers/wholesalers
I sell finished wood products direct to the retail customer
I Install my wood products right in my customer’s home
Service after the sale keeps satisfied customers
I sell Solid, Natural, Unique, Custom-made works of wood art

A few people seem to appreciate the value of using local wood.
