The person who wrote this article is an idiot…

And yes, the Bush government stood by and did nothing as this tide of cheap goods (crap) swamped our shores. In all deference Bush was occupied with other matters. The tire tiff is a good start and its about time something was done. Maybe too little, too late. I go to Walmart often here in Canada, I looked desperately for something Canadian made. I found only two things in the whole store: tape and hockey sticks.

The wholesale devaluing of the Chinese currency is considered a massive fraud and nobody really knows what to do with this.

To get your hands on it, you have to export junk and clunk to the rest of the World, very fast, because you find yourself in desertification, together with 1.5 billion very hungry people.

Bush exhibited a very narrow understanding of international trade, particularly when it came to China. The Chinese government has manipulated its currency to the detriment of America. That has allowed it to sell cheaply made goods to Americans who, unfortunately, have little choice but to purchase them because of falling salaries due in large part to poor trade policies that do not protect American workers.

It’s refreshing to have a president who appears to be inclined to protect America and American workers. That’s more than can be said for the previous administration which, in many ways, hurt our country. Maybe now we’ll see a rise in American manufacuring and industry, despite Republican efforts to send it all overseas.

In arriving to my duties as a low-wage part time hourly worker at the Glen Lake Boat Launch where I wash boat bottoms, I ran over a FILE inadvertantly left on the Department of National Resources run property, penatrating my right-rear passenger side tire. I believe the tire is from CHINA and was purchased in a set of four, balanced and mounted for $400.00 and after only 20,000 miles of service, these ‘shitty-tires’ are worn. I need new tires but can not afford American Tires because I have been restricted from my professional employment by retaliation for a Civil Complaint against an employer engaged in FRAUD.

This Six (6) Year blacklisting has now reduced me from married american family man, successful business man, to homeless derelict with Chinese tires.

The United States Department of Justice, has assured me (for the last THREE YEARS) that the matter would be corrected to my saticefaction, would someone please tell that to my CHINESE TIRES with a FILE THROUGH THEM.

My car has been towed, thankfully paid for by GEICO as I am IMPOVERISHED and have no money for Food, Housing, CHILD SUPPORT or normal human existance because of non-prosecution of White-Collar FRAUD CRIMES in NEW YORK CITY.

Because I am broke and must have transportation to my below-poverty-level-job, I must buy Chinese Tires.

Maybe President Obama, should provide me a PAYCHECK so I can buy some new High-Quality Tires.

My car is at the service station in LELAND MICHIGAN and I have no money to pay for REPAIR of the CHEAP TIRES.

Everybody knows they are cheap but no body knows if they are safe. America must think twice before letting chinese cars in.

Tires, Tyres, Chickens, Soya Beans, Garlic: Maybe time for a ‘Chicken, Soya Bean and Garlic Parity Burger’ that tastes like tyres ?
