[QUOTE=cr726;2906750]I am speaking about when companies gave a sh@t about the country. You know making quality products and taking care of their employees.
This country makes nothing, we allow China to make us crap products, poison our pets and kids. Oh yea and buy up our debt and pretend they are not a communist country and exploit their own people.
Great stuff and you are worried about Christmas.[/QUOTE]
I'm not worried about Christmas. I just recognize that Thanksgiving is greater than Christmas due to the lack of gifts. That doesn't mean I don't think people have the right to be greedy. Of course they do, even if I don't agree with it.
Companies should be company first. Again, that's how you grow and hire more people. Not by neglecting profit. That's what they are there for. If we didn't bail out failing companies, this would be more apparent.
We don't make more products because it's simply not cost-effective to do so. If there was money to be made in it, people would do it. It costs too much.
Yes, we should make sure that our imports are not hazardous. Fine. That does not conflict with my point one bit. China exploits their people, sure. That's something they have to work out. It has nothing to do with us.
I'm sure there are things China doesn't agree with about our country. Guess what, it has nothing to do with them. None of their business. It's our job to fix our problems and their job to fix theirs.
