    A lot more people working over there.

    Yep, they are indeed working. The federal poverty level in the US for one individual is $11,170. The highest average wage for one worker in the Chinese province of Beijing (the highest paid workers in China) is $8,760.

    If such an individual was paid in the US just that one individual would be making some $3,000 per year less than the federal poverty level (It would be far worse for families). Tell me, my good fellow, would you like to work for such “good” wages? Would you then recommend that Americans actually work for such wages?

    Of course, obviously the cost of living in China is also much lower than in the US. But we are NOT in China now are we?

    But does that worker in China have to spend $3000 or more a year for medical insurance?

    No, the state pays for it. But you wouldn’t want that here, would you?

    But the Republicans are “job creators”. They never said they were “living wage creators”.

    Slave labor is alive and well in the USA. Corportate “for profit” prisons are kept well staffed by our legal system and prisoners manufacture clothes and other goods for a fraction of the cost the Chinese make them. Arrested for smoking marijuana, a DUI, failure to pay creditors, etc? You can get a job at the local prison where you will have room and board and a full time job. And if we need more products made, we just get the police to arrest a few more folks to fill the job slots.
    This is just another reason that the USA has more people behind bars than any other country on the planet based on population.
    I remember when Hasbro was made in the USA. My GI Joes were all made in America.
    Mickey posted some links the other day where people can buy American. We need to invest in each other.

    Probably more Christians (I mean religiously Christian, not culturally) in China celebrating Christmas than in USA.

    Some years ago the Chinese government’s own estimate was 5-10% of the population is Christian. I.e., 50-100,00,00.
    Given that there are pressures against converting to Christianity, I’m going to guess a higher average level of commitment to the faith than among American Christians.

    that’s 50 – 100,000,000 Chinese Christians.

    @Nos Nevets

    So you think there are less than 100,000 Christians in the United States? And you think that 50-100,000 represents 5-10% of a nation that has over a billion people? Uh…you might want to try “thinking” and “comprehending” before posting again…

    And gosh darn it, we could get those jobs if we would just outcompete the Chinese, and get rid of those job-killing regulations like minimum wage, safety standards, child-labor laws and environmental regulations.
    The 47% doesn’t deserve things like “living wages” and “breathable air”! That’s for rich people!

    I think if you would buy gift cards to restraunts you would be better off or take the kids to a play or circus or something. They will remember that more than some piece of junk made in china. Do not think so ask them what they go last year. My nieces an nephews alwas ask were are we going this year and remember what we did last year.

    There is a growing sector of the consumer population that is refusing to purchase things made in China. I’m one of them. Chinese stuff is crap.
