I totally agree with you. Most shoppers are self preservationist. They
only think about their immediate
needs for a product they are shopping for and most often think only
about the cost and the perceived
value. They buy cheap Chinese goods and become part of the endless
cycle of break buy break buy.
A brief examination of the bulky waste at a land fill or transfer
station can illustrate this. Most consumers
never have a conscience thought about where the product is made. Ex.
“as a consumer am I helping to
keep my fellow Americans working with a good paying job”.
It is really destroying American manufacturing and severely hurting
our economy. Could you imagine
if Obama pitched “buy American” like he is pitching government run
health care. It would be huge but
I don’t think the Chinese would like that and they are financing our
massive expanding inefficient debt
ridden government. Consumers buying products from Red China fail to
remember or even realize that
it’s a state run communist country.

We gotta quit buying cheap chinese junk I'm telling you-- the practice
simply is not economically sustainable and besides the damage it does to US
manufacturing please realize that it also deprives our own government of
otherwise available tax revenue at the local, state and federal levels...(
you see, chinese businesses and their coolie workers don't pay any US
Also, I would urge everyone here to show support of HR 2927 111 (otherwise
known as the "border tax equity act of 2009") by writing your congressperson
and letting him / her know that you are in favor of this very important
piece of legislation, the full text of which can be found by following the
and which was introduced and subsequently referred to the House Ways and
Means Committee on June 17 2009
