    We need to outsource the House and Senate to China.

    Apparently the Chinese are better at governing and economic development.

    They may shoot political dissidents in the head and use forced slave labor and small children in factories but we can overlook a few inconveniences as long as we achieve economic recovery for the wealthy.

    We can deal with the pollution problem later.

    I don’t know if anything profound is going on here. I was looking for nude reflections in the teapot. Might McCullough be Denise Richards?

  3. moss says:

    Predictable reach of ignorance here. Any idea of the number of countries represented in the production of that teakettle? Because country of origin only specifies the home of the corporation shipping it.

    Just like an iPhone, over 80% of the constituent components originate outside China. But, please, don’t let the realities of economics and commerce get in the way of your cherished right to be ignorant.

    Investors have to research and learn. Engineers have to research and learn. Folks making decisions about logistics have to research and learn. The rest of y’all can stick with politicians, priests and pundits filling in the blanks in your education.

      You think China is the World’s Largest Polluter because it imports copper, stainless steel, and copper huh?

      ……but I’ll play along: Yeah===I think that teapot is 100% made in China. Whadya gonna do about it?

    This is a scandal that must be investigated.

    If Revere teapots are made in China, before you know it, everything will be made in China and sold at Wal-Mart.

  5. Glenn E. says:

    Well when you think about it, it’s kind of ironic, in a sad way. Revere Ware, presumably named after Paul Revere. A famous American, of the Revolutionary Way period, who alerted the population of the invasion of the land, by an oppressive foreign power’s army. And not a similar foreign power is making cookware in his name, beating Americans out of a job. What’s next? Soviet Union made Tang? You know, after the US beat them to the Moon? Or wigs made by native Americans? After all those scalpings.

  6. Rick says:

    Ever go to Harbor Freight Tools? They have brand names which are hilarious, such as Ohio Forge, Chicago Electric, Pittsburgh Automotive, Central Pneumatic, US General.

    Everything they sell is made in China, but they label it to imply that its made in the USA.

  7. Kent says:

    That’s not a teapot bro.

  8. Porky Rottenham says:

    Yeah OK, I get the point. Too bad it’s 20-30 years late. Why bother posting stuff like this now? If some people don’t know it yet, who cares? I am accustomed to better content here than this.
