Gloom and doom, or hope?
Recently while shopping in Federal Way, I wanted to purchase a box of Christmas cards. Do you know two stores have only cards made in China? Try to buy a toaster made in the USA. You can go to four stores and not find a toaster made in our country. Our shoes came from China. Go to the auto parts store for brake pads for your American car and learn the brakes are from China. Our dog wears a collar from China and sleeps in a dog bed from China.
Recently, I purchased a part for the bathroom sink from a Federal Way hardware store. It is made in China.
I have learned a good job in China in a factory making auto parts pays $70 per week. Will we all be under the control of Chinese masters in the future?
The only Americans with a secure future are in prison serving a life sentence. They have food and a warm place to sleep.
