Now fellas, don't be so hard on the Chinese.

All the Chinese folks I've met have been wonderful, wonderful people :-)

Whether they're Buddhist, Christian, or Hindu, all the Chinese folks
I've met have been great folks. It's always a pleasure to interact with
Chinese-Americans, online and in person.

In America, as long as you're friendly, you're accepted, no matter what
your ethnicity, religious belief, color, sexual preference, or creed.

They weren't very friendly when they thought McArthur was going to
invade them during the Korean War. And when we start feuding with them
over the world's natural resources then we will see how friendly they
still are. In the meantime they can buy all our T-bonds and T-notes
they want as long as they don't mind getting paid back with Obama
dollars, which will be worth a nickel on the dollar, maybe a dime.

I tend to agree. I have found that, if you are dealing with China, you must
stand your ground and define the quality you must have. And they will
normally deliver.. If you dont, you are toast.

The Chinese make crap because that's what Americans demand. The guys
importing stuff want it cheaper and cheaper, and so that's what the
folks in China do, they make it cheaper and cheaper.

As long as the market keeps demanding shoddy parts at low prices, that's
what the supply chain will feed it.

Dude...I was married to a Chinese girl for 8 years...

I just have trouble with them doing *ALL* our manufacturing, and the
amount of $$$ going there. People complained about the Japanese. When you
bought something made in Japan, you *KNEW* it was Japanese, probably had a
Japanese brand name (except for Curtis Mathis TVs, of course. Made in the
USA...with Toshiba parts and circuits...).

Buy a Dell. Guess what?!?!

We used our new PA system today for the first time. Peavey 8300...Made in
China...

The Chinese are capable of quality work. I have a Japanese guitar built
in China and the workmanship is very nice. The fretwork is the best I've
ever seen on a guitar - my guess is that it was done by robots or some
automated process since they're too perfect and consistent.

As usual, we'll always underestimate the Asians. What else is new? :-)

I think that it is similar with most people. If you define what you want
in very certain terms, you will normally get a satisfactory product. But in
negotiations of this type, you can leave nothing to the imagination.

If you didnt write it into the contract, you didnt communicate it.

I have a Hofner I bought on eBay for $75. I haven't played it for 2 years.
I picked it up the other day and had to tune one string...

I have nothing against Asians. I was married to one. I have Toyotas, and
Panasonics, and JVCs, and even a couple (yuck) Sonys, but the big
difference is Japan isn't run by Communists.

True...but I understand that communism in China may be the official
state govenmental form, but that capitalism in the form of the many
businesses that are now operating on every level is the real grass
roots situation.

I wish them well...but not at our expense.
