    i don't think things like this mean much

    soooo many things are made in china and they're fine

    odds are the obama hat falls apart much faster than the romney hat


    i think this sums it up much better actually -

    Earlier this summer, in the wake of the U.S. Olympic made-in-China gear issue, each campaign made official proclamations that all their gear is manufactured in the U.S.A.

    In other words, either your photo is a fake or the gear is unauthorized knock offs or something like that is causing you to be fooled. So I'm sorry, but your Daily Kos talking point du jour falls flat.

    TONS of it, I'd be willing to bet its 99% of it.

    Then again, I'm not running for president, raising hundreds of millions of dollars and spending it in China while claiming to be a job creator.

    Thats Mitt Romney who is doing that...

    Yes it's true Mitt Romney is running for President. But, lest we let FACTS get in the way, the official Romney campaign is not manufacturing their gear in China.

    For a "job creator" who is getting "tough on China" he sure knows how to export labor to China with american people's campaign contributions. A complete prick.

    Mitt is cooking you a caged scramble, and calling it free-range Eggs benedict.

    Ah, the hubris of the defeated. You got fooled by some Daily Kos journal post, you came in here to throw it in all our faces, and it backfired on you big time. Now you're trying to salvage some dignity by changing the subject, without so much as a "gee, my bad, I guess he didn't do what I accused him of doing." :singing:

    Word....

    I'm a big boy, and can admit when I was mistaken. For a guy who outsourced the pins for the winter olympics to china, and headed a company who were pioneers in outsourcing, and who Donald Trump endorses, one can understand my confusion of the issue.

    I'll say I'm sorry for being duped by the Chinese knockoffs.

    To those Romney supporters, and to the Romney campaign, I say I'm sorry as well.

    obama is tough on china? he's had 4 years, and what has he done?

    what difference does it make how tough any one is on china? you're still going to fill your house with made in china.

    starts at home buddy....practice what you preach or appear to care about

    I consciously strive to avoid buying "Made In China" as much as possible. Not only for political reasons, but for the simple fact that you never know what's in a lot of stuff from that country. Check out any dollar store and you come across some things that are sort of creepy -- like cheapo hand tools or kitchen utensils with rubber handles that give off an extremely strong odor.

    Anyone remember this?

    Welcome to China's Fake Apple Store

    Uri Friedman 42,428 ViewsJul 20, 2011

    When Apple announced record-high quarterly revenues and profits yesterday, COO Tim Cook noted that China--where the company's four stores bring in the most traffic and revenue of any Apple stores in the world--was "key to our results." That growing popularity among Chinese consumers, however, may also explain the incredible discovery an American living in Kunming, the capital of China's southwestern Yunnan Province, revealed on her blog, Bird Abroad, today: an elaborate and strikingly realistic fake Apple store.


    Apparently even the employees working at those fake Apple stores had no idea they weren't legit.

    On a serious note, this is a real problem. I shop online a lot, and in doing so frequent a lot of deal specific websites and forums like Slickdeals and Fatwallet. Over the last few years there have been more and more posters talking about knock off goods from China being sold online. One I remember specifically was a deal on razor blades (Mach 5's maybe), where posters were talking about "making sure they're legit" cuz some had purchased them and got chinese fakes.

    Is it Counterfeit? Ā« fakeblades.com

    Which one is the knock off?

    Different blades but another example of knockoffs looking legit.

    Iridium razor blades. Real on the left. Fake on the right.

    I'll try to look it up, but I could have sworn that during the Iraq war maybe, there was talk of some of the bolts on US military equipment breaking too easily, and that it ended up the bolts were actually chinese counterfiet bolts. Working off memory so.


    China Big in Counterfeit Goods
    By Mark Litke

    B E I J I N G, China, April 21

    China seems not only to make everything, it fakes just about everything as well.

    China Big in Counterfeit Goods - ABC News


    Nice video with this article.

    Two and half million containers arrive here each year. Mixed in with legitimate cargo are knock-off iPhones and imitation Ugg boots churned out by Chinese counterfeiters.

    "China is still our number-one source country for counterfeit and pirated goods. About 62 percent of our seizures are from China," said He*******.
