I thought I'd make a rant about this because its something that kinda annoys me, and really is no good for the companies that do this e.g. Bob Long. 

The simple fact is, that most people in the U.K. don't care that is made in the U.K., among my friends most of them think Americans are fat and stupid. I don't hold that opinion myself that's a fairly normal opinion of the U.S. in the U.K. If you held that opinion, would you want a product made by that sort of person? One of my friends said he'd rather have something made in the Far East than in America.

 

Also, while in the U.S. the tag "made in the U.S." means that it is supporting American workers, which is great if you're American, but does nothing if you live in the U.K.

 

It does however work both ways, as Planet Eclipse advertise, at least in the U.K. at any rate, that their products are made in the U.K. I'm sure that if  you live in the U.S.  you don't really care that it is made in the U.K. I mean why care about workers that are living over 3000 miles across one of the world's biggest oceans.

 

So, this concludes my fairly pointless rant. I hope you semi-enjoyed it at least, and that you understand what I said (and I do not hold the stereotype that many of my friends have.

Holding the opinion that Americans are fat and stupid seems to be a fairly popular opinion for people in other countries to hold, and I really don't think most of us care that much.

Anyway, I'd rather have a product made in the UK rather than a product made in the far east.

I think the "Made in America" is more a point of national pride than anything else here in the US. Not that other nations dont take pride in what they do or create. Im the type of person that judges its product on its track record regardless of where it was made. Probably stems from being raised not to be judgmental based on a persons country of origin. It may also have to do with the fact I have Hungarian, Czech, British, Isreali, Spanish and Russian ancestry. : )

Where a product is made is pretty much irrelevant to me. If it works, it works. Hence why I'm the only one in my die-hard GM family who drives a Subaru.

 

Though I will admit to being a bit partial to militaria from Eastern Europe as their culture in the Cold War fascinates me. But that's really the only exception.

I don't really care if something is made in the US. Maybe a long time ago a stamp that said Made in the USA meant it was good, but now quality can come from anywhere.

I personally think that the USA national paintball team should have to use things made in America. It proves a point and it just seems like the right thing to do. I personally like seeing the "Made in America" sticker. However just because something is made in the US, doesn't mean I will buy it over another product made elsewhere.

For example, the Motorola Moto x is a great smartphone that is made in America. I'd much rather have my GS4 over the Moto x even though it was made in Taiwan.

Well to be honest, I could care less from where it comes from. Coming from either here or the UK, however, I'm near assured that it's at least decent and workable well enough for my satisfaction. But our reasonings I'm sure differ when it comes to products made in the UK and the US. People here don't not get UK products over US products because we don't like UK. We don't get them because they're not 'murica enough.

At an old job I had we had a bunch of product made inside a facility in Cambodia or somewhere called Usa. So it just looked like they had 100k typos on all heir stuff but its a good marketting ploy because lots of the world is pretty stupid to be honest.

Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes.

When I first saw it, I thought Teddy Roosevelt was shooting a bear. That's ironic because President Roosevelt famously declined to shoot a bear that was tied to a tree whilst on a hunt, deeming it "unsportsmanlike" (A political cartoon of this also spawned the creation of the Teddy Bear).
On second look however, I noticed he's actually shooting what appears to be Bigfoot.

I was born into and/or have lived in one particular modern society and, despite having only seen a miniscule fraction of the world for myself, will instantly declare this particular society as superior to others.

To prove this fact, I will periodically spout vague, out-dated, and often xenophobic dogma; insist on the usage of stereotypes for anyone but myself; and list all the accomplishments of others who, despite likely achieving their success in any functional society, happened to do it in this one.
Hooray and huzzah for the coincidental society to which I identify the most  .

Ok, SrsSide: I think its cool to have pride in your country. Not that its cool to get stupid about it, but if you are ashamed of your country, no ones making you stay. We as Americans enjoy more freedoms then a huge portion of other countries, and that's pretty damn cool. On the flip side, don't be nationalistic about it, and you don't have to like the government period, no matter where you are. (And cutting this off with, not discussing politics)

For the record I fucking love being an American. 

 

My extended family is a giant bunch of Greek Immigrants that come to this country to better themselves. They came here and because they worked hard I can live the life i'm living today. If they did not move to this country I never would have been born and well ya see that would be a major problem.

Made in the USA is marketing but it's used to give a sense of quality. Just like made in Germany. Many want clothing made in Italy, winter boots and clothing made in Canada, electronics made in Japan. Would you rather food from France or China?

I often try to buy things from Taiwan instead of China because of quality.

With experience you'll learn that quality has a price of it's own.

South Korea probably make 50% or more of all flat screens. Samsung and LG. Other companies buy their screens.

Yep, its about 50/50 between taiwan and south korean

 

 People here don't not get UK products over US products because we don't like UK. 

 

Please just stop spreading your completely false bs, that is based on nothing but your limited understanding of pretty much everything.

China, of course. Chinese cuisine kicks the ass out of most French cuisines.
Now coffee, wine, and women are a completely different story.
