Sadly... nearly all of our old RELIABLE balls were made in Ashland, Ohio. If you recall, they never cost that much but sure brought a lot of kids not just enjoyment but quality exercise and activity. I used to LOVE the Ashland area for it's vitality. Struggling now. It has to occur to everyone that China just WROTE-OFF massive amounts of debt. That "debt" mainly consisted of the shipping costs they omitted from the lowball prices they shipped goods to here- to business platforms filled with lawyers, accountants, financiers and administrators- who sold out Ashland to become drop-shippers.
I'd rather have Ashland back and write-off business platforms full of nation-destroying college degree'd pariah. Get REAL jobs, you bastards.
Commercialized sports are a major contributor to America's demise. The whole "couch potato" thing comes from zombie attentiveness to televised sports. Beyond rampant associated gambling problem maladies, more sports figures committed felony offenses this year than ever before. The prior record was set-- last year. Sporting activities are terrific ways to stay healthy, burn off excess energy, alleviate stress or frustration and to mold personal disciplines. Commercial sports are great for corruption and lawyers (not sure there is a separation), but not as much as one would think for the players who are indentured by contractual obligation.
These aren't "businesses" they are exploitation and we really don't need them distracting us from the task of recovery right now.
