There's so many major corporations ripping Americans off everyday I don't know where to start. Well...yes, I do. Here's today's example:
Indictment: Military Boots Made In China said 'Made In The USA'
Ever since I tied up my first pair of jungle boots in Vietnam the Chinese have been making them for us. The irony doesn't escape me.
