Default Made in China ... I'm pissed !

I'm pissed. I needed to buy new tires for my son's 89 Honda Accord. I bought
some tires for my old Ford van at Pep Boys. They are called "Definity" and
are supposed to be made by "Cooper Tire Company" for Pep Boys. Cooper is an
American Co. and the tires for the van say on the side "made in U.S.A.". I
needed rear tires for our 92 Caddy Seville and bought the same brand ...
they also said "made in U.S.A." I had the same tires put on the Honda
today, got home, checked the pressure and inspected them, only to find the
insidious words on the side ... "made in China" ! Can't believe I just
contributed $400 to the communist Chinese regime and took it away from our
own workers. What a pisser !

Well, you can call it wining if you want, slick.
I look at it as giving others a heads up on a bait and switch situation.

Oh, politics in the Honda newsgroup. Yes, China is bad. On the other
hand, we blew up Bagdad ("Shock and Awe") and invaded a country so we
could install a government favorable to the economic interests of the
corporations that are sending our jobs to China.

There was no "bait and switch" dopey. Did someone tell you that the
tires were made in the USA and you then found you had been lied to? If
you want "made in the USA" don't put politicians in office who drive
American business out of the country with oppressive regulation and
taxes.

This is a brave new world redneck. Globalization means goods and
service are being transferred all around the earth. You won't buy a
pure made in USA product ever again.

You do also realize "US-brand cars" are mostly made in Mexico nowadays
right? You are contributing money to the political corruption and
drug cartels every time you "buy American" cars.

You're pissed because someone sold you tires from China for your Honda?

The irony of it all is quite amusing.

japan is a political and military ally that sells reliable quality and
safe products from which we benefit. they also set up huge
manufacturing operations here and keep americans employed.

china is an aggressive communist regime, bent on oppressing its
neighbors, that thinks nothing of selling contaminated baby food,
routinely steals american intellectual property, bribes american
politicians to export jobs, deliberately lies about quality standards
when seeking to export, and above all that, will deliberately flout
united states law by sending thugs and political bullies to oppress
tibetan freedom supporters ON AMERICAN SOIL. read that again: china's
oppressive communist regime ACTIVELY AND AGGRESSIVELY OPPRESSES
AMERICANS ON AMERICAN SOIL.

amusing little "irony"? you could not be more wrong.

it's not simply regulation and taxes - china has a been deliberately
undercutting at below cost to lure both labor and intellectual property.
it works like this: china shows up on wall street and makes sure the
stock market pressures american corporations to offshore to improve
margins. then it shows up in d.c. to make sure there is no political
opposition. then it shows up in the boardrooms of companies with key
technology they're seeking and offers significantly reduced
manufacturing costs with one significant but frequently unanalyzed
caveat - you have to move your intellectual property out there also.
which china then steals and uses against us.

example: motorola - a few years back, this icon of the u.s.
telecommunications hardware industry was persuaded to move manufacturing
to china via pressure from wall st. but china wouldn't grant them an
operations license for their new facilities until they also moved over
r&d. some members of the motorola board balked at this and voiced
concerns but china's faithful wall st lapdogs pressured motorola to
hurry up and move, and china "assured" motorola they'd benefit from
access to china's high quality engineering graduate talent. so, the
move was made. and each night for the first few months, all motorola's
intellectual property walked out the door.

now look at them. on their knees, they're barely surviving in a market
flooded with cheap chinese knock-offs of every communications device
that motorola ever made.

it's not oppressive regulation and taxes. and it's not like china's
aggressive theft program is a recent thing - it's been going on for 20
years, the lessons are obvious and clear, but nobody seems to want to be
man enough to call it for what it is total retardation that we allow to
continue.

actually, the ones made in mexico aren't so much of a problem - at least
a lot of those use american components. it's the "american" cars
assembled in detroit with american taxpayer subsidy but whose components
[windshields, seats, wiring harnesses, electric motors, brakes,
driveshafts, engine computers, radiators] all come from china that is a
problem. seriously, what kind of political retard thinks exporting
american jobs to china at the american taxpayers expense is a good idea???

you're voting to lose your job and get your wallet raped each time you
keep an incumbent.
