It tells me that several generations have sold the country to the Chinese for cheap labor.

You should know.
Your industry bows heavily to the Chinese for the all mighty dollar.


But who is the POTUS always touting to bring back American industry and put America first and then using cheap Chinese labor in stead of American workers and companies?



You don't see the hypocrisy?

Why is it okay for them to be owned by anyone? Looking at you lobbyists and special interests.


What part of the constitution grants Lobbyists the power to influence politicians?


The same part that lets people vote for whores. But then politicians are buying votes like lobbyists buy them, right? If you voted for a chicken in your pot, how are you different from the politician who lets the lobbyist put a chicken is his pot?

I usually vote for the politician I think will get the eff away from me the most.

Well, the Constitution doesn't really work that way, it's mostly a prohibition on what the government can do to us which is why there needs to be legislation passed that bans lobbying. However our representatives are not going to cut off their gravy train.

You should rename yourself to "the deflector"

Trump has been criticized, rightfully so, for his whole term on this topic.

Now it's Biden's turn.
We already know his family will take payoffs so I guess it won't be a problem now.

Because Obama always said we need to be more like China. China is good, m'kay.



Producing quality goods that people want to buy, that kind of thing? Makes sense.

It they aren't protected, then perhaps they could be managed, like the local deer population. See where I'm going yet?

Interesting analogy given that the NRA is one of the biggest lobbyists.

what kind of world would it be if we decided that anyone breaking the rules is bad, and not just the other side of the political spectrum? A frightening one I'd wager.

Rename me what ever you want. You will always be "Bootlicker" to me.

I didn't vote for biden, I voted for Jo Jorgensen. Biden deserves to be Criticized as well.

btw...I've always hired American workers for my enterprises.

What does it say about the US government if you have to Lobby for a constitutional right? Sort of highlights how government can create, or destroy an industry.

Well, Trump obviously thinks they make better flags, better than those that could have been made in America so you tell me.

The NRA aren't about 'lobbying for a constitutional right', they lobby for more influence on what you spend your money on, I'm sure it's responses like yours that they love.
