Yep, bigtime !!!

Also, hope this country finally wakes up and brings manufacturing back here.
China is leveraging their production of essential goods (medicine, etc) against us.
It may work for awhile, but down the road it will bite them in the hind end.
Also.......they import a lot of grain commodities from us. We can watch less TV, etc., but they still have to eat.

There are some meds made in China, but it is not nearly what the news spews out. Maybe 1 in 20 are made in China. More are made in India than China. More made in Israel than China, more made in Slovenia than China. More made in Japan than China. As many made in Colorado and New York as made in China. So far, the only medicine I have seen with an unusual backorder is Zolpidem for sleep. It is made in China.

No change in my life as I pretty much despise most people anyway so all this is just a continuation of my regular life. I only average 2,000 miles a year driving and that's back and forth to the gunclub.---6

I am hoping that with the lack of sport on TV we might get a few decent Westerns to watch...... :D

I know that this is mean spirited but it's what I feel.

The entire entertainment industry (actors, tv personalities, pro sports individuals) can go straight to hell as far as I'm concerned. Those self absorbed, narcissistic, ignorant, loud mouthed a.. holes have no place in American society. I wish no one harm, however, if a deadly virus swept through the A-list Hollywood 'Elite' killing all of them I wouldn't morn their passing but breath a sigh of relief.

While the finished product is usually not made in China, I read that the active ingredient of more than half is made in China. On the other hand, there was this in Wall Street Journal two weeks ago: "The complexity of global drug supply chains, with even major manufacturers acknowledging that they can’t always trace the ultimate origin of all the raw materials they use, makes it difficult to say exactly how large the vulnerability really is."

More raw material made in Japan and India than what the news spews is telling you.
