    With all the things that have happened in recent years related to the China factor ,ie. losing jobs, tainted food, lead, ect. let's list ideas and options to help one another with buying decisions of products other than from China this holiday season ;

    I found a portable phone/answering system at Office Max from Siemans, made in Germany. I know its not U.S.A., but its not China. As I find more things I'll list them.

    Well I do not know how many jobs we lost but I have added a couple of employees and I know of another guy in the scrap business that has added 15 plus this year because of the boom in the scrap prices. I believe this is mostly due to China? So ther is some good they are causing also. Bill

    They also just turned away one of our aircraft carriers for a scheduled port of call in Hong Kong, Really screwed up travel plans for many Military families. After the ship turned about departing port putting many miles behind her, China called back and said they were clear to dock. We declined their offer. I would say that put a hurt on local business that cator to sailors and unfortunatly the travelers that made plans to "ship side" with their kin.

    You want to limit biz with China you are going to have to shut down the biggest Corp. in the good ol' USA. Walmart is driving this train. Jake

    I disagree jakearoo. American companies had to outsource their manufacturing to China before the stuff could come back to be sold on wal mart's shelves. Greed amongst corporate America is driving the train. Wal Mart is practicing capitalism. That's not to say that they are totally innocent, but I would blame the corporations that shut down American facilities and moved them to China before i blamed Wal Mart. If you want to take it a step further, blame Bill Clinton.

    Watching the national news and it sounds like a good portion of America is snubbing China for Christmas. Sounds like this is due to 40+ recalls of Chinese toys and goods over this last year. If only we were to keep it up through out next year also.

    the problem is american business. we make something that costs a dollar, we then sell it for 2 dollars. business found out they can get the item made in china for 10 cents. they still sell it for 2 dollars. they make almost twice the profit and we get cheap stuff. we can't even get the stuff made in USA for a dollar because everyone sells the 10 cent stuff. we even buy food from china, why????? don't we make the best food??? oz
