Uniform uproar is just symptom of problem

I get amused at the uproar from some people about China making the uniforms for our American athletes for this year's Olympics.
These same people probably could not see a forest because of the trees.
China is keeping the United States from going broke due to our great Washington leaders that seem to think that if most households can live beyond their income due to the credit card system, our government should be able to do the same. China is one of those credit card holders the U.S. has.
Ralph Lauren is said to have made those uniforms, and he, like too many other U.S. companies, is doing his business overseas, more than likely.
If you ever wonder why, when any small or large country hints that they may have a financial problem, the Dow Jones takes a big drop, it is because of our financial involvement in those countries.
