    You know what makes me laugh is all them rednecks shopping at walmart like it was the greatest thing (it isn't) and flying all those flags with a little tag in the corner that says "made in china" and then bitching about not being able to find decent work, so they gotta listen to country music... of course its all the other parties fault tho. Said so on tee vee.

    I have long since concluded that people in this country have no medium or long-term memory, no history, no knowledge beyond the previous quarter. No curiosity, and no energy left to improve with. No idea how much the don't know. And proud of it.

    The have a low self opinion. They are followers

    They fill their empty emotional void with the
    temporary dopamine high of buying stuff.
    It is a fleeting high, and then they can't bring
    themselves to get rid of the items because then
    they would have to admit to themselves that they
    were WRONG to buy it in the first place. They
    again have low self esteem, so they can't admit
    they are wrong, because it would make their
    esteem even lower, so they hang on to it and
    become a hoarder. Not further wanting to admit
    they are a hoarder, makes them hide it, so they
    get a storage unit. So storage units are a
    manifestation of parental abuse growing up.
    It is a real thing. It is not a Chinese goods
    problem, It is an emotional problem.
    That is why foreigners hate America.
    We are a bunch of fuked up, weak minded
    people. Quite easy to see, hard to admit.

      Agree on people being, and acting, "ig-nernt".

      WalMart engineered this, though. So it really IS to some extent the fault of others. At least in getting it all started.

      You can look this stuff up...... Walmart was the biggest customer for many companies (a position that gives the customer the "whip hand"). They simply started TELLING the companies how much they were going to pay for the goods they bought. Of course it was always less than what they were paying at the time. And they explained how that was going to decrease every year. Walmart also started establishing suppliers in china as a backup.

      So, the suppliers tried to meet the new costs, but found they could not. So after a few took the hint about buying from china, the rest had to. Their US factories mostly closed, of course.

      Notice, this happened while Walmart was still on their old "buy in the USA" program. So at the time, there was no junk from china.

      Once that deal was done, though, it was not undo-able, because in many cases, the companies actually had to pack up and send their production machinery to china. They would never be able to get it back, of course.

      Walmart should get a "Meritorious Service to the State" award from china for basically doing the hard work to establish china as what it is now. They did not do it all, but they surely made it impossible for any company to survive in the consumer goods market unless they closed their US factories and imported everything.

      We should all stop buying from WalMart. But they would get over that, they are international, and no longer even need the US.

These things are popping up faster than mattress stores.Edwin Dirnbeck

            Might be true, might not. The WE has an agenda, and like all news orgs, will slant what they report.
