I have an old Honda 50 with a Chinese 125 pitbike engine I've been riding it since 2011, nearly 14,000 miles with an engine that gets over 100 mpg and will do 55 mph. Chinese market products are far too prevalent in our country and don't be fooled by trump's phony tariffs BS, He's only out for profiting for himself and other billionaires.

Ask yourself how many campaign promises has he kept? Honestly? Mexico pay for the wall? He caved to Pelosi for 2 billion when he had 25 billion on the table 8 months prior, all because we won't do bipartisan. Trump is the biggest fraud to walk this planet.

Enough said.

What we need is a 1 party government. Mexicans will get in no matter what trump thinks, so many have already came. He’s essentially taking a tantrum and calling a national emergency because he isn’t getting what he wants. Now he’s pissing off putin. People are people no matter where they’re from. Multiculturalism can be bad especially in London many come and become thieves there. There’s really nothing we can do about it though. For example my great grandpa came to New York in 1907 from Italy as a stowaway. We’re all immigrants really because this wasn’t our land. A European melting pot but from other countries as well. Presidents come and go but they can’t decide our individual actions and who we are. When people decide to fight over political “parties” it won’t help anything. The few things people obsess about: politics and sports. I care about neither.

My great grandparents and great great grand parents immigrated here through new York as well. They are immigrants and i support Mexican or any immigration. If you floated across a river in an inflatable boat rowed by a guy with no shirt and walked across the dessert at night to get here, well, sorry you are not an immigrant, you are not a "dreamer". You are an illegal alien who has started your relationship with your hopeful new home by committing a felony.

There’s some border towns where they speak Spanish only. I think they should have to learn the language if they live here. I don’t think Mexico is as bad as North Korea. But Latino countries seem to always have troubles. Instead of rising up they flee. A lot of them are opinionated against Americans but they still come here. Heck in the 20’s and 30’s Mexicans came up to work for ford in Michigan. I think other cultures are cool but not if those people commit crimes. Overall I think there’s too many people in the world. Compared to a hundred or so years ago the population has grown a ton. Sometimes I think everywhere is too crowded.

There are many reasons. Some of the blame is on China for too lax labor laws, pitiful wages, no respect for copyright laws, and cheap materials. Some of the blame is on the US for making it very difficult for small companies to compete with giant monopolies, expensive labor, lots of legal hoops to go through, expense of hiring and insuring workers, and corporate greed demanding unrealistically high profits from investments. Don't forget a lot of "Made in China" stuff is owned by American companies and is purposefully made over there to line their pockets even more. They can definitely AFFORD to have their products US made, but it would cut into the bottom dollar too much so the investors wouldn't allow it.

Best the companies who want to keep work in the US can do is to try to compete on quality, since they have zero chance of competing on price - which even that is becoming difficult as some China goods are becoming actually reasonable quality while still being cheaper.

They can at least tap threads correctly and clean shavings off things. That’s just laziness right there. Also you shouldn’t be able to file a tap but I was able to on one. The Japanese would never do that type of stuff. China is technically communist that’s the kicker and we buy everything from them but we’re the ones that hate communism. The Chinese are crafty in their methods and don’t care about quality or the Americans. That’s the most annoying part.

The world's not overcrowded lol. We have migrant agriculture workers still here in MN. Ever been to South Dakota? Minnesota has very rural stretches as well less than 1 house per square mile in spots. My mother lives in Alaska and I've been there a couple times and well the entire lower 48 could live there. People over congregate in huge cities where there isn't even enough dirt to filter the water before it goes straight into a lake river or ocean. Cities are bad for the environment.

Teetering on a dangerous slope. This Country has no National Language, and no National religion. Our Founding Fathers were very specific in that regard. Do not let things like that trick you into separating our population. Even if they "rowed in on a boat" as long as they came in through one of our MANY entry points for Asylum they are legally entering the country. The very first people here were "Illegal Immigrants" seeking Asylum from a corrupt government much like you see today.

FWIW Immigrants have the lowest crime rate in the US, and contribute BILLIONS in taxes - many times more than they take. While I agree that it should be done LEGALLY and through the proper channels, demonizing immigrants is a fear mongering tactic to push certain agendas. Almost all their talking points are easily debunked by widely accessible hard facts and studies. Don't fall for it. Diversity and immigration is what made this Country the powerhouse that it is today.

You get what you pay for.

If you want a tap that won't file down, don't look for one for $3 on ebay.
