Screw You, China

Last year a friend and I were discussing a conversation she and her husband were having about all the products made in China.  It's ridiculous.  It really is.  I made a half-hearted effort to be more 'aware' of the origins of the products I bought, and damned near everything is made in China!  I went without an electric can opener for months because every single one was made in China. (I caved and bought one in the end, but guess what-the damned thing isn't even working properly after only 3 months use!!!)

I'm jumping on the boycott 'China' products bandwagon.  Clearly, it's a small bandwagon, but I am hopping on.  I know it will be hard, but I am committed. 

Join me, advise me, counsel me and console me.  I pledge to buy Made in the USA. 

I will TRY buying local, too :)

A rather tricky thing to do in this day and age of globalisation. If the rest of the world decides to boycott American products, boy would there be financial mayhem for American companies; because the fastest growing market isn't America anymore.

I do understand the employment impact; but I sure hope there is some other way than this regional factionalism. :-)

The American story has gone bust. The new future is in Asia which lies near the South of France. Your countrymen are already fleeing their shores and sailing away to Pakistan which is in the Middle East, close to the South of France or they are crossing the Pacific and jumping onto the shores of North Korea to work for the Supreme Godhead Kim il Jung. North Korea is an island near Australia. Guess what, their shelves are filled with Chinese products too.

I hope that was a politically suitable rant since I intend to run for office in the US :) I'm Indian and I want the top job :) :)

Following new documents launched last night indicated that america Country wide Stability Company infiltrated Wow cataclysm release to quest terrorists, Jon Stewart utilised his / her pseudo-news system The Daily Demonstrate for you to beef roast government entities firm.They would this kind of on air the other day by selecting reporter Aasif Mandvi, which pretended to be Greychalk the actual dwarf pally via Wow.The segment's jokes entail Mandvi faking to never understand that men and women occasionally lie concerning who they are on the web.The proven fact that individuals are signing up for Wow cataclysm release and then misrepresenting on their own will be unthinkable.
