The government (left and right) sucks and they should be ousted for the fact that stand up companies like Tial are aloud to be ripped off by the Chinese and then aloud to be sold on our market with no regard for anything.
The sickness runs deeper. We are gutting our skilled labor pool as well as dismantling our industrial production capacity. We tell everyone now that they need a college education to be successful. How are we going to employ all of the "white collar" workers who are now "entitled" to earn white collar wages when there isn't a single "blue collar" worker supporting them? A service economy is a hollow shell. It is the "Emperor with no clothes". On top of that, even if we were to tariff the heck out of imports, OSHA, EPA, ADA, etc., and our wonderful legal system would make it impossible to rebuild our industrial capacity in any meaningful time frame.
