. .or maybe too much Bailey's Irish cream in my coffee this morning!?!

Today's China is a disposable society. What I mean is the things they manufacture today are all designed to break within 2-4 years. When they break down, you simply buy a new item. Who fixes TVs any longer? You buy a new one when the old one breaks.

All this is designed to keep the bazillion Chinese employed. After all, you can't loot and pillage when you are working unlike here in the U.S.

Chinese have figured out if they keep the plants running 24/7 all have a purpose and some sort of living wage.
Well, Here we go! American’s are the weakest race on earth!(Especially white males)! Whores are raising children not knowing who the daddy is teaching the children nothing except it’s free free!No one wants to work, worse than that no one thinks they have to work. It’s free! America is doomed!

Everyone in America want to buy items manufactured with slave labor because it’s cheaper. However nobody wants to be the slave labor. Seems to be the issue we have. We think everything should be cheap....except for our labor.

No disputing America was built off the backs , blood , sweat and tears of slave labor and child labor.

Now China provides US merchants all of the cheap labor they want to manufacture whatever they want to sell.

Not many places left in America that pays high wages for unskilled general labor except the federal government ... ( pay a mailman $30 dollars an hour to put a piece of paper in a box )

People don't realize the Chinese can build a product up to whatever quality level the merchant is willing to pay for.

So true ^^^

This whole woke society pontificates about slavery and its effects, but ignores all the slave labor supporting their lifestyles.

I mean we can blame China, but we as Americans have been taught to consume. It's engrained in everyone that they need the latest and greatest gadget, car, clothes, etc. China just capitalized off of it. Americans want to have to buy something new. Having their cheap crap break or be outdated in 2 years is good for them because that's their excuse to blow more money. Even poor people in the US will have designer clothes, jewelry, and latest iPhone.

Not just the unions. People want to make a "Living wage" for entry level jobs. Stocking shelves, working the fast food counter, cashier, etc were never supposed to be jobs that made you financially independent. Couple that with the previously mentioned want it all want it now mentality toss in debt beyond your means and there is the recipe for financial disaster.

Yep. If you have a dream where everything we buy is made in America you are gonna have to convince a great percentage of Americans that they should live in poverty on purpose. Capitalism cannot thrive without workers being paid below the poverty line.

And in the same breath, we're taught that being poor is somehow "noble", that we should be grateful what whatever lot we get in life, that being rich is evil, or even that hanging on to your money is miserly.

So, go out and consume because Famous Clown #427 just bought that $400 pair of shoes and we should want that and be like them...yet don't you dare try to dream big--you better get back to working at your "normal" job.

Be grateful you have money, but spend all your money. What a sick bunch of messaging that is.
