Run the factories and sacrifice the workers,
or halt the factories and lose the nation

I did see a newsclip that south korea had closed its carfactories, they dont get parts from china at the moment.
And almost all electronics, like Iphones, have no production at the moment.
Who knew that putting so much production in a country like china could turn bad....
Oh well, adaptions will take place and china might have continuing misfortunes, we will see.
My wife is a asst. manager of a tool store that gets 99.9% of its items from china. A week ago we heard on a radio station that china has closed its steel plants. she expressed her concerns with her store manager,
He said that the Company has a three month lead time of new product coming from china. Factory to container ships, to company warehouses to store front. So they would not feel the affect for about 2 1/2 months. As she is responsible for unloading the new inventory off the trucks. She would be one of the first to notice shortages.
I'll let you know when, and if the trucks start coming up short.
with all the worries of stocking up on health care supplies, sanitizers, mask, food etc...
never thought of the household goods we are dependent upon from home depot ...
light bulbs .. auto parts.. hardware, etc..
better rethink about what other things from home depot I need....
Well well well, we (the USA) has certainly legislated and regulated ourselves into a sticky little situation now haven't we? Dependent on the chicoms for every damn thing we use.
I'd like to invite everyone over to Slippy Lodge to take turns getting into the "Way Back Machine" so that we can go punch the shit out of all the globalists who gave away our once great country.
Seriously, now is the time to cut the chicoms out of the loop and tariff the hell out of everything they try to ship us. Eliminate regulations so that we can build more factories and manufacture the things we need HERE in the USA.
