Response to That is only smoke and mirrors ...

 

I absolutely HATE the fact that almost everything we own these days is made in CHINA or some other Asian country!!!
Our very own government let it happen and continues to let it happen by out sourcing products and jobs when there are thousands of people here w/o jobs! Part of the problem we brought on ourselves is by allowing UNIONS to get so big and powerful! Union wages have gotten SO high that its no wonder things are made in China where they can be made for a fraction of the cost! Its a no win situation!
The other night on the news they did a brief report on what exactly in your home was made in China vs what was made in the USA............ when they finished clearing out this particular home there was virtually nothing left in it...... not a single item was US made!!! Kinda scary!!
A few weeks ago I was in the market for a moving cart/dolly and looked thru the local flea market for one as I knew I'd be able to find one cheap...... yeah..... I found one cheap allright........$10.00 made in VIETNAM!!!! I passed!
DONT even get me started about Vietnam or India either as I wont be silent!
