Beijing Cries Foul Over US Made-in-China Tempest; Golden Networking's ‘Made In China’ Happy Hour

Made in China Happy Hour

Made in China Happy Hour ( Will Bring Together Executives, Investors and Entrepreneurs of the Business Communities, for an Evening of Networking and Cocktails in New York City from 6PM to 9PM, July 24

As reported on Fox News, ( China's official news agency has blasted U.S. lawmakers for complaining that the uniforms American athletes will wear at the London Olympics were manufactured in China.

The Xinhua News Agency on Monday called the American outcry over the made-in-China Olympic blazers "hypocritical" and "irresponsible."

It snarkily suggested that all U.S. lawmakers should perhaps be banned from "wearing anything or using any product" that was made abroad - a near-impossible restriction in today's globalized economy.

Xinhua singled out U.S. Senate majority leader Harry Reid, who had called for the uniforms to be piled up and burned. "If there is anything that should be burned, it should really be the hypocrisy of the U.S. politics," it said.

What are your sentiments on this topic and which side are you on? With many Americans still unemployed, should the U.S. Olympic Committee have off-shored American jobs to make uniforms for American athletes in China? Are people over-reacting to this situation? How necessary is it for majority leader Harry Reid to demand the "Made in China" uniforms to be piled up and burned? With only less than two weeks before the opening ceremony, was it rational to have all the uniforms remade? How do you feel about Team U.S.A uniforms being made in China?
