    When the Chinese drop their excessive import tax on US-made products maybe we will have something to talk about. When they correct their human rights violations maybe we will have something to talk about. I for one try to buy made in the USA products, when I can’t I try to find items not made in China.

    *** Great for UB and Bpt; “business is business” almost anywhere in the world these days! However politics and greed tend to ruin national relationships between countries. That’s why it’s important for universities in general to play an educational role that in turn helps promote and keep interest opportunities open between countries. On another note, our import and export taxes should be close to one and the same for all of America’s “long-time” national allies and different for “non-allied” countries depending on their pending status with the USA. More of America’s exports going out and less of other non-allied imports coming in. *** Made in the USA ***
