This is simply ridiculous.
This is ridiculous?
This is real news?
Hell, the vast majority of Americans have been buying products made in China for the last 20+ years!
Gotta love the fauxrage from congress on this one, while most America flags are made in China. Probably even the one on the Hill.
Harry Reid, I think, took the cake.
U.S. Olympic team uniforms outsourced, by an Obama donor no less...
U.S. Olympic Uniforms: Made in China by Democratic Donor’s company | Washington Free Beacon
I knew it was Obama's fault.
Nice find HJ!
Had to link on it before the Obie Hot-Tub-Lie-Time-Machine machine censors it!
it doesn't make it right and it doesn't make buying american not worth fighting for.
and yes, it is real news. these athletes are representatives of our country participating in a ceremony that will be viewed by the world. perhaps if they wore a flag of surrender it would be more appropriate. i would rather see them draped in blankets made in pendleton oregon and walking barefoot than insult american workers this way. furthermore, if this isn't news, than high unemployment figures aren't news.
while i cannot avoid buying things in china anymore, i do go to great lengths to buy american because all of our jobs depend on it. perhaps we, as consumers and voters, should do something about it. instead, we boast about what a great deal we got on some article of clothing or tool we bought at some X-martor factory warehouse somewhere.
Ridiculous that a private company that gets a plumb government contract and in order to maximize profit goes to a country with the cheapest labor?
But conservatives have been cheering that little practice for decades. It went into overdrive after Bush entered office..but..profit is king.
No matter that our patriotic captains of industry have been eviserating our work force, profit is king.
Carly Fiorina wants to cut 30K jobs from HP? No problemo..move them to China.
Microsoft is moving call centers to India and Brazil? Heck..those lazy Americans make to much anyway.
GM is moving plants to Mexico? The salsa is great down there boys!
Don't you dare touch the tax code that allows for this..because Grover Norquist told you so.
Then blame the whole magilla on the black guy.
Good job boys!
Save your speech for all the laid off workers connected with NASA space shuttles. Hell, we've even outsourced rides for American astronauts to the space station to Russia. This was real news with less outrage, and a more significant 'flag of surrender', as you put it. Sorry, I just can't get upset about Chinese made Olympic uniforms.
