WTF. So I'am at my nephews first B-Day party. I start playing with the kids and the toys. I look under one of the toys "Made In China", I look under another and another and another same thing. Easily 85% of the toys "Made In China" [:(!]. I was furious. When are we going to stop importing this crap and supporting china! I have my wife look at everything she buys before she makes a purchase to avoid china crap. But like she says, it's hard, sometimes it's impossible, if your looking for something in particular. I think we have to start manufacturing more goods to sell.........MADE IN THE USA!!

If you really want to get depressed. Go to any store you normally visit and play the game "Made in America." Sometimes I can't find one thing in a store made in the U.S. It really opens your mind up to the notion of "free trade."

There's not enough profit in them for an American company to remain interested in them, just like anything. We invent it, sell the heck out of it then pawn it off as the profits leave.

You said it. I am enfuriated(sp) everytime I look at any of my kids toys all I see is MIC. As your wife stated..., so has mine..., It's near impossible to buy kids stuff that isn't MIC. Mc D's is a MAJOR user of MIC stuff. Personally I refuse to eat there, Period. But the kids like the MIC Happy meals. HEY..., Mc D's or is it really MIC D's?
