    Personally, I'd be more concerned where the majority of the profits go than where it was actually made.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    I believe that "cliche" is the work you were looking for.

    If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it must be a duck. They are overpaid and that's why their jobs are being sent to China.

    No it is not. You have little understanding of how manufacturing works.

    Please check the label. I see the bottle and I've gone to their site, but no where do I see the bottle labeled beer. I occasionally drink Sing Ha, a Thai beer, that gets a little label "ALE" stuck over the Beer when its imported.

    So typing on a computer versus me making parts to cars that chances are you have bought is real work?

    So how do you determine that? What factories have you been in and where and did you see how the workers could afford to live. I have to add, to make your claim you have to have visited foreign factories, towns and worker neighborhoods.
