    Almost 2 million Made In China gadgets sold on Thanksgiving

    Not a one made by an American.

    and 22 million American unemployed have no idea why they can't find a job....

    duh..!!

    If Wal*Mart's Global Procurement Office is in China and Wal*Mart has nearly 20,000 vendors in China and put less than 5% foreign in all its stores in China....

    Just whose best interest would it be at pumping this sh!! higher and higher...

    An American or a foreigner in China....

    You Americans will wake up one day when a foreigner in a foreign country reads those words on that tablet under the arm of Lady Liberty...

    • Mad - If the usa would cut about 70-90% of welfare we could move a few jobs back to the US. When people can live in nice homes, drive nice cars, eat more than is needed, and not work? The business people that I know can't find GOOD help now. When a food shortage appears in our grocery stores and it may not be long there will be reason for Marshal Law. Read F E M A laws & rules

      • Cut welfare to create jobs is a stupid idea. People on welfare spend the money, which stimulates the economy. Raise taxes on rich people, who sit on the money and invest overseas, which takes money out of the US Economy. Cut taxes on working class people, who spend the money in the USA, which stimulates the US Economy. Cut Defense Spending, which is the sole reason for the increase in the National Debt since 9-11. People who are hungry should be fed. Hungry, starving, desperate people resort to stealing. And what about the children of poor families--you want them to suffer. Social Security and Medicare do not add to the National Debt. Defense Spending does.

        Sentiment: Sell

      • If the American people want jobs back...

        All they got to do is keep the damn George Washington's in their pocket book and purses...

        and when all that foreign so-call cheaper items ain't flying off retailers shelves...

        It will not be but a very short time those retailers will tell corporate America to go back to making Made In America.

        It has never been about foreign being cheaper...

        it has "always" been about moving US dollars out of the hands of the "haves" in America and putting that wealth into the hands of the "have-nots" in foreign lands...

        1975 the last year America had a trade surplus.

        38 years of moving the wealth....

        and the American consumer is poorer

        but can't figure out why....

        DUH...!!!
