Quality is no longer an issue, inferior products with a cheap price tag now rule the market. This item may last a while or only a few hours. You get what you pay for. American made used to mean quality made products but with little profit to the manufacturer.
We poison our pets with antifreeze laced foods and other harmful chemicals, give them toys to play with that are made in China. We give our children toys containing heavy based lead paint and other harmful agents. We feed them food and they wear clothing laced with who knows what kinds of harmful chemicals. Is any of this good for our children or our pets? And then we wonder why our children get sick from these things. Our children and our pets have been targeted, but we are all exposed to the same harmful, chemical laced products.
Who is to blame for all the tainted goods? Is it the Americans or the Chinese manufacturing plants? I think the majority of the blame is on the shoulders of the American companies. Consumers wouldn't have this problem if companies wouldn't see the dollar as more important than their fellow American's lives. After all they were the ones that closed down U.S. plants and sent manufacturing oversees. How many times have you picked up the newspaper or heard on the news that another plant has closed down and moved out of the U.S.?
One major toy manufacturer recently apologized to the Chinese manufacturing plant that made heavily lead based toys. They said that it was a design flaw and they should have done a better job on designing the toy. No manufacturing flaw existed that said the paint needed to be lead based. This toy manufacturer didn't want to lose that large profit from upsetting this manufacturing facility, a fine example of greed and brown nosing.
Some people say they have an American made car but do they really? Many cars built in the U.S. are assembled using parts that come from overseas nations. Some cars assembled in the U.S. from strictly American made parts don't sell very well, so fewer of these cars are being built. So do you really drive an American made car?
Maybe if the American companies that have introduced tainted goods into our environment would be brought up on federal charges and be held responsible for the deaths and maiming of the people and animals that ingested these tainted goods, then maybe they would stop overseas production. They need to be held accountable for what they are doing to us. If they refuse to cease operations in an overseas nation then the government needs to step in and halt production of these tainted exports into our country. Make it a federal crime to do so.
Our children, pets and people have died from these tainted goods. I think that the manufacturers are to blame for sending things to other nations to make, other nations that for some reason want to harm us. These companies have put our health and safety on the line in order to satisfy their greediness. We need to pull out all manufacturing plants and bring them back home to American soil where they belong. If we don't do that soon the problem of tainted goods just keeps escalating. When is it going to end?
