And now there’s nothing that you or I and anybody else can do about it, because now the only stuff that you can buy in this country is cheap disposable Chinese-made crap. And U.S. businesses, with the connivance of the U.S. government, have destroyed the manufacturing base in this country, driving wages down the toilet, so that all most people can afford is this junk.
I keep wondering when U.S. companies are going to wise up and start in reinvesting the United States, which used to be the envy of the world when it came to high-quality manufacturing. I’m not holding my breath though, because while U.S. executives are busy examining their own polyps, Chinese executives are laughing all the way to the bank, which BTW they now own.
Pros: looks nice but beware dangerous poor quality metal parts .. they break ..
Cons: poor quality chineese metal it breaks while on it ..dangerous they should be recalled ..

The things made in China aren't that bad.
If you think you can make a better product give it a try.
Oh yeah, name one?
Making a product is quite different from Copying a product Even if I were to come up with one original idea for a product, it wouldn't be long before it got stolen and mass produced, in China.

The problem is : they make JUNK, they KNOW it's junk, and they sell it to us, cause it's cheap and you would NOT put'em in trial for such a low price, and you bought it, didn't you ? THAT's the problem.
(I'm not only speaking for the USA : I'm French, and in Europe, it's the SAME problem) Now that the factories (and even the Know-how !) of a lot of items have disappeared, we are no more able to find them REALLY "made in USA" or REALLY "made in the EU".
If the question is : are you able to produce for the same price the same item, the answer is obiously NO.
