What I find to be so funny(well not really) is how when you see one of those Apple stores. They look like the metro-sexual/feminine wet dream. I wonder how the shoppers at those stores would feel if they knew the people making their 'pretty' gadgets slaved in a virtual dungeon.|
This entire issue is making the thought of buying anything electronic repulsive to me. The bastards either need to make the stuff here, from where they earn their profits, or they pay tariffs.
Our country was FAR better off when the stuff that people bought here was made here, by people that are working here. This whole 'globalism'/service economy thing has FAILED us.
