Speaking "as" a manufacturing company, I can assure you, the post along buying quality is the exception, not the norm. We purchase things to
dispose of shortly down the road, we are literally buying goods in China in order to bury in our landfills, and we might as well just complete the
picture and have this garbage sent directly to the landfills and ommit stocking them on any shelves.... This is the sick truth to it all, and the
boomers who have squandered our resources, have lived as the elite "entitled" work force, is finally dying out and what we are left with is a huge
We don't buy quality, we want crapola, and we don't care where it comes from, even if it's fueling our enemies, it's about the bottom line, with
endless consumerism run rampantly out of control. Guess what, no matter how much you buy, you won't fill that void, the marketing companies lie to
us, they are there to make a buck, and we insist they are all legit, and never dare to look below the surface to realize that we are starving our
local economies just to have something that will only take up space.
Right now America is being purchased by communism and islam, we are selling our inheritance to the highest bidder, and it's only a matter of time
before we are going to be kicked out of our own country. You buy local, something made locally, and hopefully not through or by some useless union,
and the positive's far outweigh the negatives, but you gotta think further then a 24 hour period in order to realize those bennies. One worker, a
mere grunt or cog in the process, getting paid for a full wage is going to be paying for fuel, food, supporting their own needs just to do the job,
not to mention their families, and their money's transfer directly back into the economy. You end up "hopefully" with something of quality that
will outlast anything made in commie land, that can actually be fixed up down the road for further use and/or resale, and you don't have to purchase
it again in your lifetime. We don't think that way, we still insist upon our local's to live off of a bowl of rice, and wonder why there is no
motivation for getting things done right.
We used to defend our way of life and our democracy with a vengance, we have sold it out and continue to do so because we don't think past the end of
our noses. I saw this whole mess coming the moment gas hit over 2.00 a gallon, back in 2007. Once that happened, all goods and services skyrocketed,
and it has never recovered. You control the cost of fuel, you control the economy, and guess who is controlling the cost of fuel....islam!!!!
I've ran many experiements as a manufacturer in the past, computer workstations for example, where I can build something that will never fall apart,
even my prototype which I used for over a decade, took serious effort to take apart, yet it wasn't made out of glass and metal by some huge
conglomerate, so they never really took off. Those competing workstations, all totally obsolete, replaced with the newer, shinier garbage, are on the
market to replace their prior ones, which in turn are in the landfill only a few short years after they were purchased. We don't buy quality as
well, not price wise, but because we change our minds every year, so it doesn't have to last past our constant need to change themes and rearange
stuff. Remember similar cabinets made in the 70's? Those still are kicking around the second hand stores to this day, it goes to show, that we have
the capacity to build quality, but the problem is, one must also build something tasteful and not dependent upon current trends.
What I do now for a living is merely filling in on jobs nobody can afford to have happen for them, I can charge a far less rate entirely because I
don't live on the high end at all., I would shudder to think if I had a family to support, it would be government assistance for the bulk of what it
would take to survive. Well, guess what living upon government assistance is...it's communism...and honestly, I don't see anything democratic about
our country at all anymore, even the formal communists have greater freedoms then we do, and until we wake up, it's going to get worse. I can't
wait for the dollar to be worthless, I can't wait for us to have to barter on a local level for all of our goods and services, I can't wait until we
are forced to have to rely upon our local community again, the way it used to be, and we get to become a free nation again....
