Um, I fully realize that and that's why I was complaining about it. It
is GREED, run rampant. So, to clarify it for you, I'm not complaining
that the Chinese own us per se, but rather my anger is directed towards
the greedy, stupid, short-sighted bastards that sold us out.

Well, if that comment was directed towards me, you are sadly and wildly
off the mark.

Although as with all pendulums, sometimes unions have gone too far, but
generally I am pro-union. -Something- is needed to try and
counterbalance the run amok greed of management.

Actually it was in response to m ll.
But the answer remains that you were willing to buy a Chinese
generator to save money.

There are two kinds of product that come out of China. 1) Chinese
copies of real machinery and 2) machinery that is made to spec for
western companies. If it doesn't have a good pedigree, i.e. made to
spec for a reputable manufacturer it is strictly buyer beware.

Which is why I like "Harbor Freight". A good quality US built wrench,
for example, might cost $5. But if you're only going to use it
once every two years, then a $ copy is good enough.

Harbor Freight has that $ wrnech for... five dollars.

Other places will sell it for $0.

So as long as you realize it's just a cheapo and
treat it that way, you're fine.
