At the same time, the military will raise hell about their air space. So what the military does and what business does is two separate issues.
Actually, we cannot blame any average or non-average citizen from wanting to live within means and thus purchase products even though made in China. The US broke the mold when our monetary system was owned by the people through Congress. Woodrow Wilson, US President signed the Federal Reserve Act turning ourmoney supply over to private bankers. Presidents Ford, Clinton, both Bushes, and now our current incumbent have continued to promote transferring manufacturing and technology over to China,decimating our manufacturing capacities to the extent we hardly making anything nowadays. These transfers were encouraged by large corporations within US, giving millions to politicians to promote their agenda of greed without concern for the American people. So, we are being brought to the knees of the world banking system and order because of these acts which otherwise may be considered treasonous if done under any other cause.
It will not stop me from buying products from China, because I have little other choice, but it has caused me to rethink my future in a manner that I must gage my life to sustain it in a world order that in future will bring with it economic disaster.
Just something to think about, that is all.
