So is my Ipod,DVD player,tv, parts on my Fass Im sure, computer,my door knobs on my house, my garage door opener, grass trimmer,,,,should I go on. Look around your house,cloths and everything you touch every day and youll realize everything is made over seas.

Even your truck well the tooling. We design the whole weld shop at kentucky truck and most of the tooling was manufactured over seas. In fact about 50%+ of the engineering for that part of the plant was done over seas.

Thats my point

Im sure this will start an arguement but I was just pointing out everything else done or made overseas

Yup, because so many people do not even look to see where what they are buying is made.

True Rob. But go to the store and look at apple juice. The local growers quit making it because the Chinese make it so much cheaper. Local growers (Romeo area) have actually let apples rot on the ground rather than make the juice.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

Russ I would be willing to bet that also has to do with Gov't Commodities and Subsidies. The wheat farmers here have all kinds of rules and restrictions.
