Copy that. Chinese goods simply do not hold up. They look OK but usually break or fail in some fashion soon after purchase. Sadly, that is about the only thing that gives me some small amount of comfort when thinking about Chinese military and foreign policy matters.
Funny thing. Just earlier this morning I was thinking I sure would like to get my hands on an American made set of finger nail clippers because all the new ones i have are made in China and aren't worth a sh!tt. Wish me luck.
Agreed. People are wising up to the decline in quality "Made in China" products.
China has the ability to make products equal or much greater than American Made. It's the product originators (name on product) who dictate manufacturing specifications and price profit points which causes low quality production. When you see a company name on a label, you are assured that company dedicated to the Chinese plant how that product would be made. Those originators are American corporations and multi-International companies. It's not the Chinese intentionally making cheap krapp and hoping someone will come along to put it in American stores. We don't want to pay a lot and companies know we accept inferior disposable products. Nothing we consumers will do about it. No where else to go. Some big monopolies when it comes to distribution of products to stores. Remember that.
sacwoodpusher---- Made in South America? or North America?
Bingo! I replaced the original water pump in my truck when it was 10 years old with a Chinese remanufactured unit. It lasted 11 _months_. I replaced that with one rebuilt in America and it's still working fine after 9 years.
I do all the work myself so it wasn't so bad but for someone who has to have someone else do it, it would have been very expensive. I consider the cheap Chinese parts of low quality a form of economic warfare. Apparently, Americans are waking up.

Those who went around the barrier should be disqualified as too stupid to be in THIS gene pool.

I don’t give a rat’s xss where Islam is coming from. I read enough of the Koran to understand, and watched enough of the world to believe that we need to kill those who would kill us in the name of religion. Period. Yawn……I give up!

Huh……..Obama must really hate Hillary to dash her hope of being elected by endorsing her.

Oh so many lies, and now he wonders why the house and senate don’t trust him? Duh!

You are absolutely right to be critical of the deputies…..after all, they guy didn’t run, the horse did…..yet the guy gets kicked, and they ignore the horse. I think you’re all specieists!

Just a minute!!!!! I believe in Stand Your Ground…..you should not be required to retreat, and you should not be required to be robbed or beaten………HOWEVER, isn’t the standard that your life, or the life of another must be threatened in order to use deadly force? If so, then the cop cannot shoot a guy running away from him. PERIOD.
Not sure if it is murder, or manslaughter, but there is NO WAY this cop was in fear for his life.

Why is Obama wasting time at a town hall forum in Kingston, Jamaica?
He's going to try to make Jamaica one of the fifty-seven states. LOL

Brown was a thug, who got what was coming to him. Trayvon appears to be the same. Garner was killed over untaxed cigarettes by an overzealous cop, but he didn’t know he was using lethal force. Garner’s killer needs fired, Brown’s should be given a medal, and this cop should be given life. These incidents are NOT the same!

No…..I am going to JUST SAY NO! An officer who will unnecessarily shoot a black man will also unnecessarily shoot a white man, boy, woman, or dog. This is NOT a racial issue, this is a bad cop issue. The cop needs to spend life in prison. Why not stand up and say this is not racial?

No, this is not about a cop who got angry and yelled. This is about a cop who tried to use his “position of authority” and I use the term loosely, to intimidate. He’s a jackbooted thug. Check your emotions at the door, and if you can’t do that, take off the badge. When he threatened to arrest, he abused his power. He needs fired.

There is a cop that needs his ass kicked, and then needs fired.

So, how much did that cost the bakery? I’ve been sued by employees…..I won….er, I mean, my attorney won, I paid.
Hopefully this baker didn't have to hire an attorney. A complaint to a government agency is not the same as a lawsuit, and if it is baseless, as this one clearly was, you may be able to talk your way out of it on your own, knowing that you can still hire a lawyer and appeal if they rule against you.

Had a math professor at SUNY Binghamton…….(Graduate school) Dr. James Geer. He taught “Perturbation Methods for Solving Non-linear Differential Equations”. Each class of problems was introduced by showing us what would not work, indeed, when he convinced us the equation had no solution….he would pull the rabbit out of the hat, the nearly magical way to solve the problem! I know, I know…..but he fascinated the heck out of the IBM Engineers that filled his classes! Enjoyable as all get out!

My ancestors came from Germany after the war between the states. I therefore owe no reparations. Actually, these protestors show me black anger, not friendliness, and I see this and resolve to have nothing to do with them. Isn’t this the opposite of what they are trying to accomplish, or are they trying to take over?
Want to REALLY get under their skin??? Just IGNORE THEM! Let them talk to the wall. If they get no reaction, they’ll just get bored and stop. Paying them ANY attention feeds their desire for more fame.

Black Lives do not matter if they are interrupting my breakfast, and if they do that before I’ve had my coffee, they deserve to die.
I do wonder how things look in your hateful little world.
Sounds reasonable. Fortunately no one can interrupt you down in your bunker. Way down in your buried school bus. Down there with your mylar bags of rice and beans and your box set of Debbie Does movies. Careful no one duct tapes your breathing pipe closed. If that happens you'll have to step into the light. And we all know how dangerous that can be.
“The Teacher Didn’t Force Him to Take the Jacket Off.” This is the big lie in their statement. A “request” by a teacher, to a special needs student. You might as well command it while wearing the SS Uniform while placing a jackboot upon his neck.
Yeah no kidding. I'm guessing that because the teacher didn't physically rip it off, they decided they could get away with calling it a "request".

Here we go again, shooting bad Muslims to protect good Muslims, knowing full well that the good Muslims hate us too. As soon as there are no bad Muslims to keep the good Muslims’s heads down, the good Muslims will shoot at us, thus becoming bad Muslims. Better we kill them all now with a well placed nuke.
