    I don't even think Samsung (S. Korea) uses S. Korea made components in their computers.

    At least they are an ally.

    Ercisson (Sweden) is as well (or are they historically neutral).

    You will likely find a lot of Taiwan and Malaysian made stuff as well.

    Sure intel and AMD are American, as are major video card companies.

    ...but all their stuff (other than perhaps the actual silicon valley processors) is sourced elsewhere.

    Building them is not manufacturing the parts.

          Samsung is Korean. DUnno where their stuff is made though. I suspect that many MANY companies are going to be dropping China as a workshop. They're just too hot.

                Every time I visit the American relatives I find they give no fucks about anything they buy other than price...made by slaves in a foreign country ...a Chinese knockoff of an American manufactures product they knocked off...A company that just shut the local factory and moved it overseas...none of this matters ...just tell me how cheap I can get it... even if I have to do a group buy on some website.
                In fact I find my fellow Canadians are more loyal about buying American than the Americans I know.....sad as hell when you think about it

                  I like that most new Dodges have the VIN in the sales ad. First digit is country it was made in
                  1 = USA
                  2= Canada
                  3 = Mexico
                  It seems like the nicer models are made here. The plane janes are made in Mexico

                    Did anyone see any of the items I mentioned on that list?

                    All of the "technology" section was ancillary items like phone cases.

                          Finished my first woodworking project, a planter stand. I'm a total beginner but it's functional and 'Made in the USA'. For the money I spent on clear pine and tools, I probably could have bought 10 imports. lol

                              Walmart is full of people that fit that description
                              Or their wife works there.
                              (Like someone I know that complains about his union.)
                              And then there is the Air Jordan crowd.

                                But none of the 10 imports would give you the personal satisfaction of building your own.

                                        I've been wearing New Balance for years.

                                        Easy to find in size 13 and 14.

                                        Don't last very long for me though.
