The ‘Made in China’ syndrome

November 20, 2013

To the editor: Early this year I bought a set of combination wrenches, and as I removed it from the display rack, I noticed something different about the package wording of the next set....

Common, take a look at the record. When Bush left office his administration had allocated the government funds for the economic stimulus. All Obama has done is spend it and more and put us more deeply in debt than we have ever been.

NBHH, you are absolutely correct. Obama is leading this country so far down we may never recover. His corrupt administration is only equaled in places like Iran & China. Not to mention his legacy disaster more commonly referred to as the Affordable Health Care Act. Look what wonderful things that has accomplished. Even the web sites don't work.

My turkey is a Butterball from the USA. Not one item being served at my house tomorrow is imported.

Got 3 names for you selyon - Keith Olbermann, Ed Schulz, Martin Bashir. Liars of the worst kind, not to mention foul mouth and disgusting! I suppose they would be broadcasting from the prison latrines, though

I was trying to figure out why China jailing lying journalists alarmed Phil, and then it came to me: If the supreme court made a similar ruling in the U.S., Fox News would have to broadcast from prison!

The next President of these United States, whether he or she be Democrat, Republican, or Independent, will preside over the most extreme austerity processes that our people could ever imagine. Belt tightening, budget cutting, entitlement cutbacks, whatever you choose to address, will be part of that process.

The scary part is that, because of Obama, our country could quite possibly never recover, no matter what plan is put in place.

commonman, each instance, such as yours, where Obama is defended on the basis of the faults of previous administrations; where a person, or a mass of oblivious followers, sugar coats the profound ineptitude of our current "President"; brings us a step closer to the dawn of an age such as what followed the downfall of the Roman Empire. commonman, I wonder how the U.S. populace would have fared during the Dark Ages? Not well, I fear. But hey, Obama is the man h__l bent on repeating history, so I guess we will find out soon enough. May not happen during his administration, but it most certainly will happen because of him. At such time, then we can blame the "previous Administration".

NBH, your appointment should be right after Al's. Our country and state were closer to ruin during the Bush and Pawlenty years than they are now.

Commonman, considering some of the traitorous things Obama has done since the start of his regime, I'm not so quick to write off 101. Considering the wretched state of our government and the size of our national debt, could you disregard any claim such as this? I happen to believe, as in the final days of the Roman Empire, "the barbarians are at the gate". Not the Visi-Goths this time.

(Continued) When 95% of the American population is dead and the ultra rich are left standing, they will pay China back for all that we borrowed by giving the Chinese our entire country to have for good. Just look at our ports on. the coasts. China owns almost all of them along with all the jobs we once had but have been sent over there. China has recently demanded that we turn over big chunks of land in some Western states but they said that our guns must be taken from us before they move in. That is not possible so China will attempt to poison us through food they make and then China and the Imperial Republicrats will get what they want without a fight from us. NEVER. EVER eat anything that you or someone u know didn't grow or raise

I've even seen an American Flag with a Made In China tag on it. They own us and we blame can blame them all! Every lousy politician to hold office in DC over the past 3 decades who voted for more spending, more borrowing, more printing and more government. There is no left and right and if you do believe in this 2 party system we have been misled about, the Republicans and Democrats, then you believe a far man wearing a red suit is coming down a chimney you do not even have with a bag of toys next month. Just call all of them Republicrats. You have been fooled, the controller(s) working the strings attatched to the Rep & Dem side is in plain view these days. So we blame any off them who bowed down and sold our country out. The poisoning of our pets from the treats made in china is a beta test for their plans to poison and kill 95% of us with weaponized food that was made in china. The Republicrats at the very top will allow this, infact, they gave China the idea.

And this coming from blasphemer, the oblivious. Considering you are a teacher, it's scary to think that you might be preaching your arrogant, misguided ideology to our kids, and that the teacher's union is allowing you to spew your trash to those children.

Al, would you like to have your healthcare "Made in China"? This was about products, not services.

Mr. Drietz finally wrote an editorial I can agree with, although he may be a decade behind. My ten year old Craftsman power tools have a Made in Mexico sticker on them. The Craftsman Multi Tester that I've had for more than ten years is from China.

Pets (dogs and cats) have died all over the U.S. from contaminated Made in China pet treats. Even Purina's have China products in them.

Oh yeah, that's right blasphemer. And I'm sure that in the skewed liberal perspective, everything screwed up that has happened (so far) during Obama's tyranny, is entirely the fault of those previous eight years. The point is, Sage is right on, Obama has indeed "emptied the minds" of his blind subjects.

"The Sage rules: he empties their minds . . . . .". Old Sage is quite prophetic because the Sage nailed Obama. So rather, it worked on you, blasphemer, as has Obama for the last miserable 5 years.
