    Wow, such an over whelming response!!! I am floored! Good to see we have some people here that breathe red, white, and blue...

    Keep on shopping at China Mart I guess.

    Ordered my son, step son, and friend a pair.

    Sorry Paul but I can't wear sandals. My feet are so sexy it causes relationship problems when I do.
    I hear women say things like, why don't your feet look that amazing, OH MY it's the feet of Zeus and the most common one, PLEASE let me have your baby.

    It got so bad I was banned from the beach and told I have to buy my shoes online. It's a burden really.

    nobody cares at all about fixing america.

    I speak about avoiding goods from china all the time. None of my friends care.

    I suggested Russia exports most of its oil to china, stop buying chinese goods, and china won't buy as much russian oil.

    No one cares.

    Nice sandals. Glad you like them.

    I had a made in usa christmas this year, my wife bought me all sorts of great socks, hoodies, hats, and a new pair of fancy work boots, all made in USA.

    I buy US when I can. It is hard to do so now. Almost all of the auto parts at the parts house are Chinese.

    WigWam shocks are US made. That is the only socks I buy!!! https://www.wigwam.com/

    Go to the John Deere place and buy a bearing. 10 to 1 it will be made in Chynah.

    Not much you can to about but quit and give up, or move on. Find a planter that doesn't have any cheap ass Chyneze bearings in it.

    My tractor is orange, I don't do green taxes lol.

    There is plenty we can do, it seems small....but.....

    You can look for made in USA first, then you can look for made not in china second, and then lastly, you can look at who the parent company is and where most of their operations are, it may still be made in china, but you can at least try to support a "less chinese" company.

    We won't ever be able to be china free, too many people don't even try.

    But we can at least do our part to be as anti china as we can.

    Thats how I look at it and live my life, I do what I can, but I don't stress about not being able to be 100% anti china goods.

    There was a bearing on the packing wheels of a JD planter, the ones from the dealership wouldn't last a week.

    Really the problems started when I installed an in-furrow fertilizer injection system. I sourced another vendor and found some nice 'made in the USA' bearings. They would last an entire season.
