George W. Bush's Revenge: A Federal Appeals Court Goes on the Rampage
When George W. Bush departed the White House, he left behind a giant deficit and expanded government spending for Medicare drug benefits that caused conservatives to grumble. But he did make a mark that right-wingers can cheer—by shaping the federal courts for years, perhaps decades. As Bush has retreated to painting, federal judges he placed on the bench have been implementing a conservative vision in some of the most contentious areas of federal law. The best example of this is a string of recent decisions on hot-button issues from the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, which the ABA Journal has dubbed "the nation's most divisive, controversial and conservative appeals court."

Grand opening of NC Ashley manufacturing, distribution center attracts dignitaries
It’s not often that an area gets to experience a rebirth in manufacturing jobs. Just look at that swath of the Midwest commonly called the Rust Belt for proof. But in Davie County, factory jobs, after a period of decline, are starting to reappear in spurts, a shift that Terry Bralley traces back to the day in 2012 when Ashley Furniture Industries decided to put its new manufacturing and distribution center at an old R.J. Reynolds Tobacco warehouse on Baltimore Road. Journalnow.com

Why Americans don’t make televisions anymore
There is no question that the past few decades have brought a decline in American manufacturing. Though the automobile industry may be the most commonly referenced example, some forget that in the past our nation manufactured a variety of products, including consumer electronics. One of the most expensive and most popular American purchases is the television. Television manufacturing is beginning to reemerge in the U.S., but manufacturers are being stifled. Abusive licensing patent pools threaten to slow innovation and economic growth charging consumers for technology they may never use. Detroitnews.com

Bring manufacturing back to the U.S.
I grew up in manufacturing as my dad worked for Ford Motor Company for 33 years. No matter where I went I could connect with people saying “My dad worked at the Ford plant near the airport” or “My dad worked at the Ford plant on Route 1” or whatever described the location of this prominent fixture everyone knew.

Revitalizing ‘Made in America’ Manufacturing
Until recently, the United States enjoyed more than 100 years as the world’s largest producer of manufactured goods. By 2011, when China took over the top slot, the phrase “Made in America” referred to a dazzling array of things we proudly assembled and sold, as well as the way 11 million people made their living. Nowadays, the “Made in America” slogan has come to represent more than just factories and assembly lines. The entire U.S. maker community can lay claim to the label as individual innovators and DIYers bring new ideas to life and carve out entirely new niches in the market for consumer goods. psfk.com

This is our annual "Made in the South" issue and it's timely because there is a new player in the South's manufacturing universe. For almost two decades, economic developers and politicos in the South and the U.S. have been chasing Chinese projects with little or nothing to show. Want proof we've been chasing ghosts in China for years? Okay, go ahead and name a Chinese brand that's made in the South? Tick. . .tick. . .tick. Give up?
