    I don't see how this is a surprise. we gutted our domestic textile industry because US labor is "too expensive."

    Am I the only one who just couldn't care less? They're made in China because most clothes are made in China. So what?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    This isn't news worthy.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Only during the Olympics does it matter to close yourself off from the rest of the world in jealousy...in an event that sponsors international cooperation and peace.

    NIKE Is the official competitionwear supplier-I own a bunch of nike stuff-mainly for tennis and table tennis-don't see much made in USA.
    It;s not just that.

    The USOC is not funded by the government but lives off of Corporate Sponsorships and apparel sales.

    Buying from China is cheaper. Which means there is more money to support American athletes.

    What matters more, wearing clothing made in America that will only be worn once OR racking up medals?

    People need to get some damn perspective. I'd be appalled if they went with an American manufacturer and it cost them sending more Americans to compete.

    THis is by far the dumbest ****ing thing I have ever heard a politician whine about. Harry Reid is a ****ing moron and so is anyone that gives a **** where these are made.
