Made in China

During the Clinton Era, there were several things that seemed to be worth noting(for some). Gays in the military, NAFTA, and opening up trade with China. The first two are good topic ideas for future blogs, but I think opening up trade with China was perhaps the biggest mistake of the Clinton administration. I am not a Clinton basher, and I am sure the intent was good. All those billions of people over there, buying up American goods. That, in part, is how it panned out. The problem is, they are buying up wood and many other raw materials and selling back to us steel and just about anything else you can think of. The average American s not helping matters at all. While we gripe and complain about jobs going overseas, this would not happen if we all bought American made products! So next time you are shopping at Walmart, count the items in your cart that are Made in China.

You know, I don't hear the Japanese bitching when their jobs are shipped to America. I mean, Hondas are all made in America. Is that buying American?

Capitalism has no nationality.

I don't think Japan has a problem outsourcing to America. They probably ship to Taiwan.

You must remember that cost of product went down due to shipping from China. If you want to buy a Made In USA stuff, you will pay a lot more, usually.

And not only Walmart is living on made-in-china. I think every shoe store, leather store, steel store, tool store, electronic store, clothing, etc, are living on made-in-china(asia),
