JOHN DEERING CARTOON: Take that, China!

I don't know what the editor didn't like about my comment. To my knowledge I didn't use any profanity, whatever. Regardless, apparently it was censored.

JOHN DEERING CARTOON: Take that, China!

Seitan, trying to debate this with ignorance is a waste of time; regardless, when examining machine screws for tolerance (within thousandsanths of inch), finding burrs, out of round, etc. is just too common for my preference. Also the alloy content and ability to withstand max torque specs. is a problem for Chinese imports. If you want to trust cylinder head bolts to something bought from Harbor Freight, well, good luck.
.
But then if you're "screwing" up a bathroom or kitchen cabinet, perhaps something you can hammer in like a nail is good enough for you.

JOHN DEERING CARTOON: Take that, China!

The situation is that tariffs bring the cost of imported (e.g., from China) to parity with what it would cost to produce and market a locally manufactured product, i.e. with US jobs and labor, compared the same cheaply produced Chinese product. Go to a big box store like Home Depot or Lowes, grab a handful of nuts, bolts and screws, and notice the poor quality of the imported hardware. You get what you pay for.

JOHN DEERING CARTOON: Take that, China!

So the implied "humor" is that the consumer at the checkout is paying too much for goods manufactured in China? In that case, then why are American "manufacturers"/importers paying to have their products manufactured in China.
.
Why? . . .because of the cheap labor cost in China.

Humor? . . .I don't get it? Explanation please.
.
Lately, I've failed to see the humor in several of Deering's comics.

Arkansan's viral feral pig post gets tweeters' potshots

This "argument" has degenerated into a "I'm a better driver than anyone else" scenario . . . and of course you're NOT!
.
Extermination of vermin hogs needs to be done (attempted). If you don't own/live on/rural farm production property, e.g., hay or other row crop, and have never experienced this problem, then keep your ignorant comments to your self.

Girlfriend arrested in man’s fatal shooting near UALR, police say

Seitan, are you ashamed to be call by your biological race?
.
I use "Negro" just as Martin King did so often in many of his speeches; the "United Negro college Fund" still exists today; don't forget the Negro Baseball leagues of the past.
.
Why do you want to be called a "person of color" or "African American" (I doubt you're actually from Africa), or simply "black", whatever.
