Default imports

Sadly,
all these imports keep my Son working.
He is a longshoreman.
Sadly,
because the ratio of stuff coming in,
is more than stuff going out

Tack, I'm sorry to disagree,
Free Trade is supported by the Left and the Right. If they tell campaign otherwise, once in office they end up voting for free trade anyway. NAFTA and GAAT were signed by Clinton. George W. Bush has been quoted as saying, "now is not the time to renegotiate (NAFTA)." Both McCain and Obama were campaigning for Free Trade in 2008.

Sovereignty and independence. That is what the right to keep and bear arms represents to us as individuals. We are free and independent people, and I agree that guns and the second amendment help to keep us that way. Staying out of debt, staying healthy, and being able to protect oneself helps us to maintain sovereignty and independence as individuals. As a nation, we should ask ourselves what actually helps promote sovereignty and independence, or strips it away from us.

At the end of the day, when ALL the political parties BS falls down around OUR ears, 1 and only 1 thing will seperate those who HAVE from those who HAVE NOT. I'll give you a hint, there wood, steel, even sometimes plastic, and they all go BANG.

When all else fails only 1 tool will be of any real value and I intend to have mine handy. Find me 1 democrat who TRULLY supports the second ammendment and I'll show you his/her actual voting record.

Default hi

calmdown, as i know most products are designed in US and made and assembly in China and so labled as Made in China,in a industry the value chain as i know,95% of the value are paid to those guys who worked in Design,brand,distribution and retail,and those area are actually in the hands of US,as i have worked for those area before,i know this as a normal sence ,so actually no more than 5% value are in hands of Chinese boss and the workers,especially the workers,This is actually the woe of China.and finally China got polluted ......

I went looking for a new stainless flatware service for my wife's new dining room set. Oh, you should see this thing, formal table, 6 upholstered high back chairs, sculpted table legs with ornate grape clusters at the top, inlaid burl around the edges and a matching hutch with wine rack, felt lined drawers....fancy, and MADE IN CHINA!!

Every box of flatware I found was MADE IN CHINA!! Every decorative plate or serving platter was MADE IN CHINA!! As I shopped and looked at various items, I came to the realization that nearly everything was MADE IN CHINA!!

This is going to be my quest from this time on, to not buy anything that isn't MADE IN the USA!! Failing that, I will settle for Assembled in the USA, but that is the only concession I'm making.

guntogun,

You may not have noticed, but the last post was 7 months ago.

I've purchased what I wanted and the thread died a natural death.

Minimum wage laws and labor unions have little or nothing to do with companies going off to China. It has to do with corporate greed. Ths sons of bitches charge the same price for their made in China junk that costs them 25 cents an hour to make as they charged for good quality made in the USA products.

The same "conservatives" who whine and caterwaul about socialism and communism see nothing wrong with sending the US economy off to communist China.

We will one day rue the day that we allowed the political pukes who run this country to send our economy to China. We are paying for our own destruction at the hands of the communist Chinese army.

[quote]Leupold Scopes are still built in the USA, Oregon to be exact.

Yep, the scopes with the gold ring are made in the USA using glass from Asia. Leupold is elusive about the place of manufacture of their non-gold line scopes, binoculars and spotting scopes are made. Most, if not all, of the non-gold ring binoculars, spotting scopes and range finders are made in China. This stuff does not carry the standard Leupold guarantee. The made in China stuff is guaranteed for one year. Leupold Rifleman scopes are also made in China.

Q1: Where are these binoculars made?

A: Leupold Green Ring Mesa 8x42 binoculars are made in China.
