    Could be worse than that, you could actually have to wear the thing.

    meh.

    free trade ftw.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Our military uniforms are made by American manufacturers (i.e. such firms as American Apparel, etc.)

    I have ACUs from American Apparel and Propper Int. I'm not sure about Propper, they are an international company.

    My old BDU say Ammerican Apparel. My Molle tactical vest is from Tacoma Wa.

    Does it get any better than this??????????
    I'm actually disappointed in this. This would have been a good opportunity to put people to work, if only temporarily, given the state of our economy. Very disappointing move by Ralph Lauren.

    Harry Reid almost pops a vessel over this. Apparently he would rather have American athletes appear in the games nude.

    But made in China is the American way, Harry.

    I agree with you but, due to the US global trade agreements, those days are long gone. American labor can't produce goods as inexpensively as third world countries. That's one reason we are at 8.2% unemployment. I'm all for import taxes on goods to make prices competitive.

    The US would eventually be bankrupt if China was allowed to provide services here as well. Oh wait, they do!

    So, do you ever buy "made in China?"
