    It drove us nuts at the time. Hard to forget.

     The irony is that the political attitude that goes with "Made in USA" has changed to its diametric opposite: back then, it was generally considered a right-wing stance, one that went hand-in-hand with isolationism and "America , love it or leave it". Sam Walton was no flaming liberal, I can assure you. That he aligned with the ILGWU on this particular position was almost comical, as I am sure he was no fan of organized labor.

    "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)
