I see members and just people in general on sites from all over the world seeming to be buying, selling and trading items and wondered about any problems with sending and getting stuff out of the country. The reason I bring this up is that I was trying to get a thermostat for an older refrigerator and all of the places I checked showed it discontinued except for a place in Canada. The place called Reliable Parts has stores in the US and Canada and the canadian store showed 9 of the part I needed. I tried to call and my call wouldn't go through so I tried to order online and it switched me to the US store. I called the US store and told the nice lady what was going on and asked if THEY could get the part from Their Canadian store and she told me No. Because of Homeland Security they cannot ship parts between stores out of the country. I told her that was the dumbest thing I ever heard of and she agreed. I also sort of wonder if the EPA has something to do with it as they seem to want to destroy everything old and functioning that we have so we can buy new and fill up the landfills. We can let thousands of immigrants in but I can't get a part for my beer fridge. Sort of sounds like a new Iron Curtain.
