So, what's going on in your little ol' mind, genius? That pretty soon we won't be able to distinguish it from Bob's?
Stick to number crunching, Nostradumbass.

This is what happens when you let foreign corporations take over American companies.

American workers need to earn more than foreign workers to be able to live here. Americans also want to live beyond their means, thus increasing salary demands. In order to buy more goodies, toys, and trinkets, prices on manufactured goods such as furniture need to be lower--which can only happen if made by workers who don't demand as much pay. That is why almost all manufactured goods are made in other countries; the more economically disadvantaged the better.

I,ve heard ETHan Allen is starting to bring back some production from China because they value quality over profits. As for Bob's I know for a fact they carry many american made goods, never enough of course but they attempt to be good corporate citezens. Put americans back to work and our economic problems are solved. Send a message to Washington fund Heath Care with Tariffs.

I feel sorry for people who lose their jobs, and then their homes and apartments.
