So given that yes I will pay more for Chinese made crap sold for a higher price elsewhere it if will help keep the local shops in business which in turn keeps the community more vibrant and helps hold the very fabric of our nation together.
On a side note Homer will always seek out products made in the U.S. even if they cost more.
Union militancy and environmental regulations are the primary drivers against manufacturing in the US.

Didn't Romney want to ease the tax burden on manufacturers to bring back products made overseas and employee more Americans?
Some people just like to complain - defending the problem makers and criticizing the problem solvers.
No. Romney wanted to allow business to bring back overseas profits tax feee.

i.e. make it here - get taxed. Make it there,don't get taxed.

the dollar is worth so little under the O'bama administration policies-the reason the gas prices are so high also. So you go ahead and tout his policies.

As the U.S. dollar continues to weaken, the Chinese renminbi, or yuan, has been appreciating at a 4% annual clip. Many believe this will accelerate in the near future. Continued depreciation of the dollar will further bolster U.S. manufacturing and exports.

Why does O'bama want to continue depreciation of the dollar? because it steals money from people who have saved all their lives that's why.

Pray tell old dumbazz. Bush was warned about exactly how it could happen and that idiot ignored, Then attacked the wrong country...No one is more responsible for all the deaths than that moron.
Exactly? Warned exactly? You must have some new information, never before revealed.

Please provide the documents where the flight numbers, date and time of the attacks are listed.

Since no specific information was included, what you are saying, based on nebulous information, Bush should have shut down the air. Commercial, transport and, why not military, too. For how long? Days? Months? Years?What would have prevented the terrorists from simply waiting it out? How long would it take to completely decimate the US economy?

What drivel.

You are a boy.
Even though president nobama dribbles a basketball like a girl I will continue to call the president a boy. A boy who has failed to do a man's job. His color is not the point in any ones mind but yours.
I will call you and president nobama boys. Color matters not a wit.

Calling a black man "boy" is a racial slur.

If you want to think of the President as not being grown up, then use other terms such as "child".

But Eed uses it not as a slur, nooooooo wink wink. Racist f*ck Eed.

At the Bush "Mission Accomplished" event, he should have announced the withdrawal of all troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Just like when Bin Laden was caught, it made all US Americans dance and cheer. Once Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Yoo, Rice, Wolfowitz are taken to the Hague, the whole (bleeping) planet will party."
Is this from the Borowitz report or Stewie Leibowitz?

It's simply untrue, although there are obvious terrorist risks.

Bush declared that countries that support & harbor terrorists are just as guilty. Yet the only country he invaded because of this was Afghanistan.

Why????

Well, why did Bush offer to call it off if Afghanistan turned over Bin Laden?

I mean, if Bin Laden's presence was not relevant to the invasion, like you have been saying.

We invaded Afghanistan to get Bin Laden.

The mere idea you right whiners deny this just shows how uninformed & duped you people are.

According to Moser's tally, 50,000 jobs have returned to America from 2009 to 2012, not nearly enough to make a dent in the ranks of 12 million unemployed. Still, five years ago the number of jobs coming back was close to zero, Moser contends. The 50,000 represents about 10 percent of all manufacturing jobs created over the last three years. Experts believe more are coming.

And more__all on BushCo's watch and in combination nearly ruined the USA.

This has been going on for years, look at a 10 year graph yuan vs. dollar, see when it all started and when it came to a head(2008), you can blame Obama but that is just dumb.

Lindsay Boehner married Dominic Lakhan, a Jamaican-born construction worker, who happens to be black. He also happens to have been previously arrested for marijuana possession. Now, I don't know Rep. Boehner at all, but I am going to go out on a limb here and guess that when he envisioned his ideal son-in-law, it probably wasn't a dreadlocked manual laborer who was arrested for drugs. Very few men would envision such a man as their ideal son-in-law. Even fewer conservative men would -- and even fewer conservative, powerful white men would envision such a man as ideal for their little princess.

There are men who would have made this clear, not only to their daughter but to everyone else, possibly by not attending such a wedding. And yet there was John Boehner, the man who has served as the primary face of the conservative opposition to President Obama -- opposition that some have considered racially based in its intensity -- showing that perhaps he's not so conservative after all. He also showed that while plenty of people may have a problem with the increasingly brown America that Obama governs, one in which multiracial families are among the fastest-growing segment of the population, he is not one of them.

I can think of plenty of so-called liberals who might not have shown the same open-mindedness and character as someone in Boehner's parental position -- if not over the race mixing that this union represents, then certainly over the class mixing that it does.

MORE CLASS THAN OBAMA
