Any grocery store or sam's club that sells food products from china, should be boycotted, don't buy their food products, and don't renew your membership card to sam's club,you will see how quickly they start selling American food products.
why not

I tell my family and friends not to give me gifts that are made in china. If I see it's made in china I wouldn't accepted and tell them to give me money instead.
It's easy and you should too because by buying products made in china you are supporting that red commies and that your money is not using wisely.

Not to mention that everyting is toxic coming out of that country. Heck, even their apple juice concentrate has cyanide in it! What do you think the objective is there?

There you are.
Funny that you call yourself a scientist and spew a debunked story about Chinese apple concentrate. Contrary to your lazy ass I'm posting links about a story that's over a year old.

We base much of our legislation on fear and fear mongering. Want something outlawed, start sowing fear first, keep on sowing it and finally some idiot politician, up for re-election or just to enhance their stupid and ignorant support of various bills and legislation will pick up on it and run with it. The most recent is that elected congressional idiot from Illonoiz and his newest band wagon, the plastic printed gun, that this idiot is actually drawing a salary and benefits boggles my mind. People talk about Republican idiots in congress, this one is Darwinian borderline, I'm surprised he can actually breath without assistance.

The Mrs. and I went to Walmart the udder day looking for cookie sheets. Not a huge selection, but there was at least one product made in the U.S.A...for about four times the price of the Chinese stuff...and the imported looked to be a higher quality.

Now, I'm as big as the next patriot about buying American, but I'll be damned if I'll shell out far more money for a lower quality product just to prop up some union jobs (and it had to be union made at that price).

The problem is not cheap Chinese products, but rather that the American versions cost too much. Bloated union contracts, outdated distribution costs and out of control environmental regulations have crippled American manufacturing.

And all the lefties want to do about it is spread debunked rumors about Chinese quality.

Incredible.

Hey troll, when you know what you are talking about, then you can discuss this topic with me. Until then, don't bother me.

Your first error was Walmart, Generally the only thing I buy there is Mobil-1 oil for the jeeps. We do use Sams club but usually it's for bulk items in the food category and now not so much since one of my kids moved to SC. Heck most of our meat is from this past bear and deer seasons. In a somewhat serious note, go look at Ariens snow blowers, first at Walmart, then Home Depot, then go to a Ariens dealer who is more expensive, check out the thickness of he steel where the auger is, between the big box stores and the dealer, there is a difference and the dealer one is thicker with better parts. Even the big box Honda mowers are different than from a Honda dealer in the same model numbers.
It is amazing what Walmart can do to a business, most will tell you they are a two edged sword, Vlassic was the classic for Walmart telling Vlassic what they can sell and what they can't, the size of the packaging and how much they can charge. Vlassic suffered a devastating success that they still have not recovered from in over 10 years..

I love Walmart. It is a great American success story that has saved consumers a ton of money over the years, gives jobs to a lot of folks and pays a boatload of taxes...on time, every time.

That said, I do know the difference in quality between virtually everything sold by Walmart and the big boxes on some of the pricier goods. When Lowes started selling John Deere stuff, I noticed the difference right away. On the plus side, it got a lot of folks in the Deere camp (HA!!). Hope they don't think that the stuff they got there is much more genuine that the name label.

I'll be the first to admit that one of the reasons I am in Walmart's corner is because so many liberals are not. If nitwits like Slushbag and LWL are down on something, then it must be good.

Mr.Chucks biggest problem was that whippersnapper Mrs. Slick Willie and her cankles blocking the quartz lights.

Maybe, but I also factor in that any of the big box stores are at least 30 minutes from where I live, that's roughly 3 gallons of gas round trip not to mention the idiots in the parking lot as well as the screaming spandex seams from people who should not be allowed to wear spandex under both sound and visual pollutions laws.
Well, back to my 1 year humidor stored CAO brazilia Toro and my mug of dark fair trade Nicaraguan coffee.
