China is stealing our military secrets, our industry secrets, and is shipping crap to us made by slave labor. Then they turn around and buy our industries. Of course they only allow our products in under strict regulation.

as free trade continues chinas ascension will continue. As free trade continues americas decline will continue. China cancelled their free trade agreement with india when jobs started leaving china for India's cheaper labor. Our government made more job outsourcing agreements. Now you see why congresses approval rating is 10 percent. We KNOW were being sold out and were getting mighty sick of it

If it says "Made in USA" the Chinese must be dumber than we are. It clearly states the production plant is in China!

It is funny how they call them "US Brands" yet most every one on this list is not made in the USA.

Nike and Apple products are NOT made in the US. Last I heard Apple was still making phones and tablets at their Foxcomm plant in China and Nike was still in the Philippines. They were there back in the seventies so I don't know if they moved to China or not.

Commemorate China's Communist contribution to keeping American capitalism alive with a federal holiday...

"American Capitalism DIES Without Communist Chinese Cash Bailouts Day"

Replace Independence day with it. We are not independent. We are dependent on China.

GM and especially Buick are popular in China for a historical reason, When the GM salesman came calling after the 1948 Chinese Communist Revolution, he met with Zhou En Lai. The GM salesman tried to sell Zhou on Chevrolets as the economical, "socialist" brand for the new China. Zhou said "No! If the Buick was good enough for the last Emperor Puyi, then it's good enough for Communist China." Zhou had been driving the last Emperor's Buick. This historical incident, in fact, saved the Buick brand. Had it been up to the American consumer, Buick would have gone the way of the Pontiac and Oldsmobile.

I have little or no problem with the Chinese people...but at the end of the day, their government is still COMMUNIST!...they are a repressed people. They may have a choice of product brands from which to choose, but no competing party choices. Fortunately, there are millions of Christians in that country..and still unfortunately, it is still one of the largest persecuting countries on earth.

Kruschev told Ezra Taft Benson (Eisenhower's Sec of the Interior) "We won't us nuclear weapons to destroy you, we will do it from within."  We put KFC's, Burger Kings, McDonalds, and Levi's Outlets on every corner of Moscow and look what happened to Kruschev's lovely communist utopia.  Wouldn't hurt my feelings if we could do the same to Beijing.

[BRIEFING.COM] Quiet action continues with the S&P 500 holding onto the 2,000 level. The benchmark index spiked above that level during the late morning, but has been inching away from its session high (2003.25) since then. The index bounced a little upon returning to the 2,000 level, but slipped back to that mark shortly thereafter.

Elsewhere, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (-0.1%) remains below its flat line, while the Nasdaq Composite (+0.4%) continues hovering near its high. ... More
