China boycott

Postby marlboroughman » Wed Mar 19, 2008 4:40 pm

I've had it with China. After the latest developments in Tibet I am boycotting Chinese products. I appeal to the industry to move their business elsewhere. This is a gangster murderous regime. :peace:

I don't understand.

A social conscience, yet from whatever of your posts I've read it doesn't extend to issues of environmental concern?

Yeah my prayers go to the Tibetan separatists burning and looting, killing and beating civilians. I hope the central government treats them fairly.

That is a shame. US should rethink the special trading status it gave to China. There is India Vietnam etc. to fill the need for cheap labour. China makes me sick.

Most of the shit made in China we don't need anyway.

Also, if all that stuff was being produced in the USA there would be more jobs, higher wages, and as a result you could still afford everything because everyone is getting paid more, but instead a few people are making alot of money instead of everyone making normal amounts of money.
