I've been making a concerted effort for years not to be Chinese

There are just too many reasons not to. The American companies that now manufacture there cannot be held accountable. That's not even mentioning that Americans were left jobless so their CEOs and upper mgmt could pay, what, $1/day and fill their pockets even more with their cash?

4. No... I'm pretty sure she meant be. If our trade deficit and debt increase any more

China will own our asses. So don't buy Chinese if you don't want to BE Chinese.
