Just another story to distract us from the REAL PROBLEMS IN THIS COUNTRY!!!!
Our government and media is a JOKE!!!!!!
Official American outfitter Ralph Lauren takes heat for outsourcing attire made to represent USA.
Reid: Burn US Olympic uniforms because they’re made in China - The Hill's Global Affairs:
"Mr. Reid’s outburst reveals his ignorance of a foundational conclusion of economic science, namely, that people are enriched when they’re free to purchase from whomever they choose regardless of political boundaries. Yes, there are economists who emphasize (mostly purely theoretical) exceptions to the case for free trade – none of which are relevant here – and even a few fringe economists who reject that case altogether. But economists’ overwhelming, non-partisan, and research-based consensus today is, as it has been for years, that free trade (even when unilateral) is beneficial. Mr. Reid’s temper tantrum proves that he is either inexcusably dimwitted about matters on which he legislates, or interested, not in science and realism, but in scoring political points by appealing to the uninformed emotions of constituents."
