24. I'm saying that I am sick of seeing...
Foreign manufactured items as the only choice we have. It's not only on the retail market, it has moved up the chain into parts made for construction. I'm in the electrical trade, and we have had to work with parts/shit made in China and India now, which only adds hours to a job, because of their inferior quality.

Since the United States has CONCEDED so much manufacturing away, exactly what in the Hell do we manufacture here anymore and export, that we DID NOT before we started importing so much?
