This is the second time in one week I’ve heard a Blame China rant when the topic should be the US recession. Seriously folks, we’re going back into the Cold War with these lame arguments. I’d like everyone to read up on what country would fall apart first if China were to tumble (if you said the US, you get a free Cup o’ Noodle).
I guess I can SORT OF understand his argument about importing jobs, but seriously, does JJJ really want Foxconn in his congressional district? Last time I checked, INNOVATION was the American economic spirit, not INDUSTRIALIZATION. What is this, Manchester in the 1800’s? Apple brings jobs to the US, not the other way around. Apple is the FIRST American company to create a piece of electronic that other companies cannot copycat or outright copy. See Samsung. When I was in Hong Kong this year, I saw really frustrated people working the counter at Golden Computer Arcade in Sham Shui Po cause for the first time, there was a product that was all over the world that couldn’t be knocked off and profited from.

Which is, last time I checked in American (and hella Asian yo!). Oh, and Steve Jobs called, he wanted to thank you for buying an iPad. Cause buying a Galaxy Tab is un-American (ring ring. hello? Oh, what? Google makes Androids and Google is an American company in Mountain View, California? hella Asians yo!
