It’s become painfully obvious that you’re the typical Al Gore type hypocrite. Telling everyone else that the sky is falling and that we need to change our way of life, all while making countless excuses as to why it’s ok that you do it.

If I can avoid it, I don't buy shit made by the bowl haircuts. You have to pay attention at the parts stores. The micks at Oreilly's tried to lay off a solenoid made by the chicoms on me. I ended up having to get one from Taiwan for more cash, as they had nothing else and I needed it that day.

I've had shit sealed bearings from a local supplier that were chicom. Had to warranty the shit for the customer after they shit the bed a few weeks later. Whenever I go there I have to request from a different country if I want the shit to last and not pay for it twice. The ones from Belarus haven't failed me thus far.

If it's some throw away shit like plastic panel fasteners or a lighter, I'll buy the cheap shit on eGay. If I need something durable or of good quality that I don't want to buy twice, I pay for it up front and don't buy chicom shit.

The irony is lost on the clueless here.

If the objective is to bring back the manufacturing jobs such as your tape measure assembled in the US from parts imported from Taiwan or France, the only jobs "temporarily" saved are low pay "trained monkey" $12/hr assembly jobs and low value support staff at Stanley...Which would be replaced as the facility got more robotically automated as time progressed.

The tarrifs you are supporting don't impact unassembled parts, only raw stock and finished goods. As such the only folks they hit are the US consumers via higher prices. They WONT open a steel mill that's been mothballed since the 60s nor will they add any skilled labor jobs except if you happen to be a techy and can work on the robotics and assembly lines to used to put together parts made and brought into the US from other countries avoiding the tariffs and labelled bogusly with a "Made in USA" sticker...

Tis the way corporate "Murica" works and how the companies get around stupid ideas like tariffs. The Japanese car makers taught US manufacturers real well on how to do this the last time the US pulled this stunt with tariffs...:laughing:
This guy gets it.. The mouth breathing tards like landslide are blowing their load over a 25% tax and are getting excited over it, amazing. The Gov knows none of the low cost high volume manufacturing is coming back, and will be taking in the extra revenues from these tariffs. The US needs to stick to the low volume, high profit stuff we manufacture that requires skilled labor. Let the Chinese make shoes, HF tools, black dildos for overbear, and we keep making airplanes and 37" mud tars with 45acp.

It’s funny how you’ll sit here and talk all this shit about the threat to our nation because of “commie China junk” that we use. Yet, when it’s pointed out that you also use a ridiculous amount of “commie China junk”, it’s somehow justified:laughing:

You’re a complete buffoon and I actually used to enjoy some of your post. But now, you’ve become paranoid as fuck like actionfag and need to get off the drugs you’re on.
The bugs I lick off of my windshield have more collective cognitive reasoning ability than landtard has managed to muster when these topics come up. All he knows is whatever faux news has told him the latest buzz issue is. Oddly enough exhibiting the exact same reactions from those on the other side of whatever issue from the left. He's just too much of a dullard to get it.

Fuck does anybody here get their info from sources other than Fox/Cnn/Msnbc? Most of you sound like parrots. Except landyslide I don't think he could breath without permission from Fox.

I know people in trucking and distribution and a huge portion of their business comes from Chinese products. It is no big deal to find whatever dildo you are supplying from a new source outside of China. They have already started doing it. Also they need us more than we need them. Without us their economy may litteraly collapse while we merely feel a bump in the road.

There is an old saying referring to poor countries that rely on the US for economic survival. "When America gets a cough the rest of the world gets the flu." Its about time we through our weight around a little. The fact that people actually think this will have a long term effect at HF amaze me, keep drinking the koolaid.

The fun part is at least, that once MFGs leave Chinkville, they aren't going back. They aren't necessarily coming here, but they are going to other friendlier countries, despite the fact that they might not be the cheapest.

A lot of manufacturers have been leaving already as they see the wave has crested. It might cost $1 more to buy that $10 chinese part in Mexico, but the US loses 10%, and China loses 100%. Permanently. Of course, that's ignoring that someone else, say, Taiwan, can't do it for $10.05.

I don't buy tariffs are bringing all jobs back to America. But at least I can take some solace in knowing they're leaving that commie shithole that steals IP round the clock. And maybe we'll get lucky and they come from some place that likes to do business without worrying about the disparity of the purchase of overall goods. That's a stupid score card to keep, thinking trade needs to be "equal".

I may buy $100K in raw goods from country X to make my product that I sell mostly in country Z. I don't expect country X to buy $100K in my product to make us "whole". It just doesn't work that way.

There should never have been any tariffs between us and China in the first place if they wanted to keep the gravy train rolling.

I reach past my American snap on ratchets to get my 120 tooth gear wrench ratchets. Taiwan ftmfw :laughing:

Reminds me, I heard a comment that buying Taiwan actually "hurts" the Chinese more than buying American, dollar for dollar, it strengthens Taiwan, which is a thorn in China side
as long as it isn't marked "r.o.c."
those are the commies in taiwan

I'll still buy a tool there if the price is right for what I'm doing and like it just fine. I don't have the luxury of or time to waste buying whatever the "BESTEST USAest" tool is. I bought a hammer drill there recently for 1 job and it worked great and was only 60 bucks. I'm happy, HF is happy, and I get 20% off something and something free everytime I go there. What's not to like?

Regardless of anything, our company is still looking to overseas manufacturing on our standard small machines. Our cost of labor and all associated things means our equipment is starting to become too high priced to be competitive.

Also stainless steel and other raw goods will start to hurt us a bit on our margins...but we are being told that if we revise where things are shipping from, there will not be a big hit in margins, etc.

It is all meh..

So school us were the tariffs go. And socialism is only good for people that can’t handle freedom and self responsibility. Personally I don’t need to be ruled and I’ll prefer pick the charity’s I give money to rather than being told who I have to give to.

Socialism is like ass cancer, sooner or later it will destroy the host.
