    Seems that our own Olympic committee is following in the steps of all the other outsourcers of American jobs.

    All our Olympic uniforms were made in China.

    Does that sound right to you?

    Actually, you CAN find clothes that are made here in the USA if you look. Matter of fact, some of my t-shirts are made in VT.

    But.....................seriously...................representing the USA in uniforms made in China? I'm pretty sure that there are some clothing makers HERE that would jump at the chance to make the uniforms for the teams.

    And yeah..................they DO look ugly, but what else can you expect from some snobby fashion designer like Ralph Lauren (who yeah...........IS an American clothing designer, but why the fuck did they outsource them to CHINA)?

    Because they can be made cheaper in China. That would be why the outsourced them to China. See, people aren't going to pay through the nose for goods they can buy cheaper elsewhere.

    Pride is what's causing the problem. I don't see any reason to deny someone work because they are from China any more than I want to deny an American work. See, I care about human beings regardless of where they are from. I don't want to see anyone unemployed. Because I believe work is good for the soul and because society is better when we all work.

    What is work? It's labor whether physical or mental designed to provide people with goods and services they want and need in the most efficient way possible.

    If American's want to compete for these jobs, they need to be efficient. The problem is the government has made them less so by artificially increasing costs.

    No wonder you support Romney, you like his idea of outsourcing American jobs.

    Fox and Friends were more concerned with the beret, and that it's pronounced as the French word that it is.

    You mean............they WERE until lots of people started sending them e-mails telling them that many of our fighting men and women in uniform wear berets as well (pronounced like the French).
