+1. My ancestors were made in China. And there's nothing wrong with me, except for the few things that are.

The issue here guys and gals is not so much the goods are made in China per se. It's more about the quality and quality control of the products made.

Manufacturing is manufacturing. The key difference lies on how well and controlled the process is to ensure the final product meets the quality standards laid out by the parent company.

The way I see it, a large part of the blame lies with the company not the manufacturers. If companies demand better outputs from the manufacturers, then the level of quality goes up.

It's just everyone focus' on the bottom dollar and greed trumps all common sense.

True. Just look at Foxconn and all their recent suicides. The real blame lies with the companies they work for (Apple, Microsoft Xbox, etc.)
