    Maybe we should stop letting China make all the products we buy in the US?

    bingo :biggrin1:

    Watch what brand of tires you are buying for you autos also...seems like China does not care about the US other than our money. They have sold Millions of unsafe tires that OUR goverment do not want us to know about because if there is a recall China will close the plant and OUR goverment will have to pay for it which will cost Billions of $$.

    Good thinking.
    US Labor Unions, though I have nothing against them in principal, need to get updated with the times and see that they are, in part, a reason why so much manufacturing is sent overseas. And the NAFTA 'agreement' don't help either.
