Stop Buying Made in ChinaPage 8 of 8    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
Good answer gizmo. little is known that prisons are actually factories (payoffs made to wardens) and otherwise free men are kept there.

RBM is deliberately devalued as well, amidst protest throughout the world.
Biggest problem is our own system that drove our companies over there.

Excessive taxation, regulation vs non of that in China. Our companies have little left for R&D necessary to stay 20 years ahead of the world as we once did. Much smarter to go over there, educated them, place your own QC inspectors, and make your product. America as we know is finished, soon it'll all be one world rule.

Most fail to realize Obama, Hillary, Bushes, McCains, etc are all in bed with the CFR (a david rockafeller original) aimed at eliminating sovernty. Buckle your seat belts.

You silly americans want to save your country? Boot out the elitists, vote in your Texas congressman. Anybody with a clue of economics, socio political systems gets it.
Rest is all bandaids, go to the root.

Okay there may not be 5 or 6 billion chinese but there are at least 2 or 3 billion chinese and 1 billion plus in India.There are 300 million in the US and 30 million people in Canada.People (consumers) only care about the bottom line(esp. if you dont have much).The only way to stop or reduce the made in china products is to level the playing field.That is through our goverment.

With just over 1.3 billion people (1,321,851,888 as of mid-2007), China is the world's largest and most populous country.

With 85% of the Heparin coming from China your going to tell the Surgeon what???

What about your other medications???

No label of origin???

Are your Drugs a lot cheaper....... Many are made in China....

With no regulator oversight....






Wall Street Journal

In a small, damp factory here [in Yuanlou, China], blood-smeared men wring pulp from pig intestines, then heat it in concrete vats.

The activity at Yuan Intestine & Casing Factory is the first step in the poorly regulated process of making raw heparin, the main ingredient in a type of blood-thinning medicine that in recent days has come under suspicion in the deaths of four Americans.

More than half the world's heparin comes from China. The chemical is often extracted from pig entrails in small factories -- many as rudimentary as this one, which also manufactures sausage casings from intestines.

Heparin goes through extensive processing in its journey from abattoir to IV bag. Nevertheless, because some of it originates in tiny Chinese factories like these, if there's a problem with the final medication, it can be nearly impossible to trace the raw heparin back to the source, the pigs whose tissue was used to make it.

Heparin makers in China readily acknowledge the lack of oversight. Yuan Changkun, the owner of the small factory here, says health regulators don't visit his plant. Mr. Yuan doesn't keep records of where he acquires the intestines he uses. Nor is he sure who the end customers are.

The raw heparin made by China's myriad small producers ends up in the hands of about 50 export companies, which sell to customers overseas. In the first half of last year, more than 85% of these heparin exports went to the U.S., Austria, France, Italy and Germany, according to an industry trade group.

Even if it's not made directly in China, it is very possible it is made in a CFTA country.
Google China Free Trade Agreement. I bet you will be overwhelmed by the number of countries who not only trade with them but also do some or their outsourced work.
China has big plans to import more into Central, South America, Mexico, The US and to Canada. They are widening the Panama Canal, investing in the Trans Continental Corridor, investing in the Trans Texas Corridor and will be collecting tolls off the Superhighway 69.

Again the only way we can compete with chinese goods(after they perfect manuf. them)is a level playing field and and and government regulations.
The question was can we build a Tank without China,the answer is, not a cheaper one.If the question was (I feel like Jeopardy)can we build a much much better Tank without China, the answer is, a resounding yes.Can China make cheaper crap then us, the answer, a resounding yes.

Not buying Made in China is a very good idea.
1.The education in Tibet is free.The govt of China supplies most sides for Tibetan.
2.Not buying made in China means that you will give none aid on the economy to China
3.Therefore the govt of China has less to Tibet.
4.Love Tibet Buy made in China.
5.Be hero -in -activity , don't be a false martyr.

Perhaps one of the advantages of the high gas prices is that American companies will be (finally!!!!!) forced to bring those jobs back home where they BELONG!!!

You're boycott is an oversimplification. Lets say I need a toaster, go to any store and find me a toaster not made in China, good luck with that. Walk through a Wal-Mart lately? That's a fun game, trying to find things not made in China, very challenging.

And why the outrage at just China? If you want human rights abuses, look no further than what American is doing has done in the Middle East. Do I see you boycotting us for all the thousands of innocent people killed in Iraq? -- get_mad_baby


I agree with you.

I wouldn't purchase a plastic spoon from China if my life depended upon it. I go out of my way to avoid anything made in China or having anything to do with China. I won't even eat sushi or rice - and that's a fact, believe it or not. Everything I buy is bought with my home economy in mind. Why would I want to support China? They don't support us. I'd rather starve to death. I'd rather choke on fly-blown gruel for breakfast, lunch and supper than support China.

Unfortunately, here in New Zealand, where I live, the cataclysmic flood of made-in-China goods is overwhelming. Our jobs are being dismantled and sent to China at an alarming rate of knots. The trouble is, most people here cannot see what is happening right under their noses. If I were Prime Minister of this country, I wouldn't allow China to trade with us. I wouldn't allow their products anywhere near New Zealand. But our Prime Minister, John Key, the traitor, has other ideas. "We'd better all start learning Chinese," he said only two days into his premiership. I guess he knows something we don't. But we're all to politically correct to stand up for ourselves. Sheep. Easily penned. Easily stamped. "Not made in New Zealand anymore."

Now, where's my gruel?
