    I have to shake my head and wonder why? Who will be left here in the USA to buy these products. If we have no jobs, we cannot buy products. Don't these companies get it?????

    These companies that move their production overseas should be fined,big time, so that they would think twice about moving. My company built a brand new plant in China two years ago and they are taking a lot of our work. I heard from one of our engineer's that the workers make 5 to 6 bucks a day. How can we compete with this crap? Politicians in Washington get their pockets padded from kickbacks form these companies and the only kickback we get is a kick in the butt! Something has to be done or we are not going to have any work left.
     
  8. They will now be called kung fu grips.....
     
  9. Not until the tax dollars stop rolling into Washington DC will our elected leaders wake up. The Dems and Republicans both are responsiable for the mess we are in. Every Super power nation that has existed has also self destructed. Now its our turn and sad to say we are on ourway. We have lost our respect around the world and when that happens your done. Its only a matter of time from here on out.

  11. I agree, If you like and use vise-grips you might want to stock up on them before all the good ones are gone. Thanks for the info guys, Now I definately have a reason to buy that big set that i've been wanting for the last few years.:)
     
  12. I saw in the paper last week that Hershey is headed to Mexico. Maybe the illegals will go back and work for them...
