I’m not sure where or how you draw a line with this kind of thing.
The best we can do is try not to buy products or parts made in those countries whenever possible, and tell people we know to do the same.
Electronics is one of the hardest to get around. But clothing, household items, cars, etc.? There are Made in Japan, Made in USA, etc. options for almost all of those.
It'll be hard, but nothing good comes easy.

Anyone that things they know what every single member of a group thinks is not worth listening to.
I'm holding you to that Chip. You can never generalize about Trump voters again by your logic.

For anyone wondering about the "progressives" pretending to know what's going on, just know that they:
Believed Don Jr would be indicted
Believed Jared Kushner would be indicted
Believed The Trump Tower meeting was high treason
Believed Donald Trump was a Russian Agent
Believed the pee tape was real
Believed Flynn was instructed by Trump to contact Russian assets
Believed Robert Mueller was Superman
Believed Micheal Cohen's testimony would sink Trump
Believed Paul Manafort would deliver the goods on Trump
Believed Michael Avenatti was Trump's greatest fearBelieved Stormy Daniels would take down Trump
I could go on, but you get the picture.

Yeah....no thank you China. Perhaps Russia is interested.
Well, but we need to keep China and Russia from joining together.
If China and Russia became very close allies, it's possible that they could become an unstoppable monster.
That's why Trump tries to drive a wedge between them by pretending to buddy up to Russia. Keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer.

There's no shortage of documented Chinese individuals working with or for an entity, only to leave and take prized documents with them (illegally), it's a trait.
Exactly this. It happens over and over, from small businesses to large ones. I've heard of people running juku cram schools in China, only for the locally-hired teachers to hold unofficial classes in the school and take the money. Or people investing in businesses with partners there who underreport earnings and skim money off the top for themselves.
China is still very much a Wild West situation.

This is the same party -- the same people -- that brought us the Iraq war.
Not quite; that was the neocon wing of the Republican party. There are neocons in the Democratic party as well, such as Hillary Clinton.
The neoconservative movement was started by Irving Kristol (father of Bill Kristol). Irving was a Trotskyite in his youth and later became a "conservative", as the movement is closer to what we see in the Likudnik party of Netanyahu today, i.e. Zionist. Essentially they use the American military to fight proxy wars in the Middle East for Israel.

I don't think Warren thought this strategy all the way through...
Aside from rolling over money from her senate campaign to her presidential one, Warren doesn't seem to have thought any of her policy stances or strategies through.
This is the same person who thought it would be a good idea to release her DNA results to...prove exactly what people were criticizing her of. I mean, wow.

Cyber-bullying and death threats online are real for public figures. Have to figure those will come if you plan to get famous and push through it. Imagine how many threats the ultra-famous get? Trump had Kathy Griffin and Snoop posting videos of them shooting him, and "comedians" talking about killing his 10-year-old son.
Need a thick skin to deal with all that.

*This is unbelievable. Every **** day, Jared, Ivanka, Eric, and Junior do a hundred times more dirty deals that Hunter Biden ever dreamed of.
If that were true the Dems would have been on it by now.
Or are they waiting for Oct. 2020? ;)
Going to be rough until Trump leaves office in 2024!

Pelosi and the Dems want to run an impeachment whereby the accused cannot defend himself.
Haven't you learned? "Progressives" no longer believe in due process or the presumption of innocence.
Just let them run the government. They'll be enacting Chinese-style social credit scores sooner or later.

Like freedom? You just got to be kidding! China is "open" to new gadgets and what not, but what it can not make on it's own, it either steals or copies from somewhere else!
Well, Japan copies things too.
The difference is, Japan copies things with a mind to make them better than the original.
China copies things with a mind to churn out a lower-priced version by cutting corners and making it as quickly as possible.

Cripes, has Trump not learned that when the president of the US makes comments like this they are akin to firing the first shots in a real war?
No, it's just a warning shot to Turkey to stay in line.

Precisely brother...only in this place sheeple keep continuously electing the same twits that screw them and then go on and complain about the same,s policies. Beggars belief.
California comes to mind. In fact, many flee their state because of high COL, take their politics with them, and vote the same in their new home.

Yes, I was and IMO it is a most punitive tax on the poor.
That's how taxes work.
The ultra-rich pay nothing in taxes. It's the middle class and poor who do.

I support HK's right to autonomy and freedom.
However, these protesters are throwing molotov cocktails and smashing up innocent storeowners' businesses.
They are not peaceful anymore. Neither are the police. Call it what it is, a small-scale revolt.

I could understand if they were attacking innocent people and using masks to hide their identities, like the Antifa cowards.
But in this case they're trying to protect themselves from tear gas.

Correction: Dallas rally is Oct. 17!

The inquiry is still ongoing. A vote happens afterwards.
And then it goes to the Senate where Mitch and the other Republicans will never vote to impeach.
So, the entire point of this inquiry is to annoy Trump so the media and Dems can characterize him defending himself as "exploding" and "lashing out" in "Twitter tirades."
Unfortunately for them it's having the opposite effect. If Dems had just kept things boring it would depress voter turnout. Now Trump's base is fired up again like a "he's on fire" slam dunk in NBA Jam. The Dallas rally on Monday is going to be wild!

If yes, prosecute him.
Nobody is saying otherwise.
The Democrats are trying to make as much as possible noise to keep the media busy and feed talking points to their flock.
