Just a couple of friendly Canadians out having a good time. I mean, look at the stash, mostly knives, big deal. But then again, it scares those to the north that they are becoming us. News flash, you don’t have a right to bear arms. You guys allowed your government a long time ago, in the 50ties, or 60ties, I forget, when you broke away from Great Britton, another no rights country.

Gee, and we fought and became independent, when, oh yeah, 1787.

So, nothing to see here but sensationalism, as usual. Move along now.

Ha!….Good luck on that not buying Chinese….! Try finding American made shirts, underwear, socks, etc etc…..you could make this a major quest but you won’t be able to buy much. I too remember when EVERYTHING was ‘made in America’. Thanks to rampant corporate greed, no more. Not even American icons like Daisy BB guns or Radio Flyer wagons….all made in China. European countries did not allow this, and we should not have either.

It’s not just the fault of the corporations. The American consumer must also share the blame when they continue to buy “made in China”. Corporations want to make a buck and consumers want to save a buck.

Sort of…but look how fast we can make things if we need to- all kinds of things. Stuff that we regularly don’t make. We can adapt and change. It might not be quickly but a good start would be welcomed. This mess took a long time to really backfire for us and everyone else in the world- let’s start by setting examples we can be proud of and that we can rely on in the future to keep safe and healthy.

Everybody was in awe of the Chinese building a hospital in weeks. The Army Corps of Engineers converted an existing structure, adding 2,900 beds in four days. When we, the collective, put our minds to it, NOBODY, and I mean nobody can beat us.

Looks like Johnson & Johnson is close to trials in September, with first roll out in early 2021 for a vaccine to inoculate against the Wuhan virus. Then, through our excellence in manufacturing, will and are ramping up as we speak, to produce 1 billion doses.

Capitalism, in conjunction with a well run Federal Govt in this critical time, is going to beat this bugger. You can count on it.

“Corporate greed” = yes but not the primary reason. The American consumer shops price point, that is the cheapest price. Just look at Walmart parking lots. I was in American manufacturing for almost 40 years. The consumers’ expectations drove many of my companies off shore to stay in business. When we moved we usually had no increase in profit margins since our competitors also went off shore. IF the American consumers are willing to pay more, the work will come back.

It will take years. First things first. Move production to the next third world countries like India (English speaking a plue), Vietnam, and others. Punish those who will not follow the rules. Reward those who want to partake in the global BS thing.

Move essential manufacturing, generic drug ingredients, critical healthcare equip., like ventilators, masks, PPE, etc. The current administration, albeit is going to push for a redo. He’s been taunting it from day one, BUT NOBODY LISTENED. Look it up my liberal friends. It was a campagne topic, but as usual, fat and happy won the day.

You havent seen anything yet. You want to see ” fundamentally change the country” hold on to your seats boys and girls, this is going to get going in a hurry.

May God give him the strength, he already has the engine.

I think it’s more important to BE American than to BUY American. BEING American means exercising the liberty of choice in purchasing goods and services.

I remember when corporate companies started to leave America because of way ridiculous restrictions & constantly rising taxes & fees that helped drive them out. I also remember a democratic president that practically insisted it would be better for corporations to move overseas.

Concerning dump facilities…my city has a free municipally-sponsored dump station as does one of our favorite stops along I-70, Fruita, Colorado. Thank you Fruita!

Cities miss opportunities to have tourists stop, or they suffer from unscrupulous folks dumping their black tanks into local storm drains or road side ditches.

The alternative is to provide a free RV dump station, or permit an appropriate business to have a dump station as a magnet for tourists to stop and visit your town or business. What town doesn’t want tourists to leave their town green….with money?

Baraboo Wisconsin has a free dump station located outside of the sewage treatment plant. Located on Mansfield Rd.

Since The coronavirus has affected all of us, some to the extreme like the R.V. Doctor Gary Bunzer I will not buy ANY product from China. I would ask people to do the same as the CCP is responsible for every death world wide. This is a disease that will not go away and will be with us forever till they have a vaccination which may not be available in our lifetime (since most of us reading this site are retired and older). Just my thought and yes I’m pissed.

It’s believed that the strain that infected the USA originated in Europe.

But it all originated in China. The fact that they hid it for 1-2 months and allowed several thousands of people to travel from Wuhan to all corners of the world caused the spread. It is believed that the virus traveled to New York from China via Europe.

Joe, I think Mike needs your intervention. How come you know where the Wuhan flu came from, and Mike, on the other hand is so confused.

Mike, put your beer down please. Not a good time to be replying under the influence. If, you are not consuming adult beverages, then you need to turn your TV station.

Thank you, this is an official public announcement

I agree with you! I believe that China has put themselves into a tight corner with trade not only in the USA but also the world. I can only hope that US manufacturing pulls out of China and starts making more products in the States. I am willing to pay more for my electronics and other products.

I have no problem at all paying a few dollars more for “Made in the USA”

Agree…bring back manufacturing here. And, if we survive this health and economic crisis what do we do with China? Here’s another thought: If, after the Pearl Harbor attack we treated the Japanese the way we are with the Chinese presently- we’d probably not be known as the United States of America. I’m pissed too.

I wish the stores would have US made items separate & labeled so that it would be easy to see because I would always to buy US products first….such as a rack of USA made t-shirts or jeans…but not mixed in with the others made in other countries.
