    Gigabyte just sent me a Business Advisory, regarding US / Chinese Tariffs.
    The Tariff for these computer parts will be paid by the US Consumer (buyer).

    I'd like to see better quality merchandise from somewhere even if it's more expensive.

    Has anyone else noticed you can't find a t-shirt that isn't thin as rolling papers?

    Walking through the remains of Sears this morning was a sad sight. I stopped buying craftsman tools when they started making them in China. They still warranty what I have but the replacement tools are not the quality I bought 10 years ago.

    Yeah but fortunately the Pittsburg tools are getting better in quality and now offer unconditional replacement. My 45 dollar 12 piece set of large mirrored polished combination wrenches look mighty grand from a distance . You would swear that they were Snap On!
    I used to have a Craftsman Fully Equipped WorkShop,
    now I have a Harbor Tool Freight cluttered mass of whatever it is I cant find when I need it -just buy another one, Storage Shed full of stuff.
    But boy those shiny wrenches always are around but I seldom need to wrench on bolts larger than 3/4 but wow they do look so sweet and shiny!
    Heading there right now to pick up something I need to use just once and probably bring back 20 things I will never use once. Gotta get there before the tarrifs begin and whatever promotion ends. MASS CONSUMPTION PRACTICED HERE!
