Sara Bongiorni, Suburban Mom From Hell, recently wrote the book A Year Without “Made in China.” Its premise, where one typical American family tries to live for a year without any goods made in China, sounds really smart on paper, and seems to be tapping into the “buy local” movement, which I strongly support. Now watch this interview with Sara:
So what exactly is the point of a boycott of Chinese goods when you are buying goods made in Italy, Germany, and Thailand? Reuters reports:
Bongiorni takes pains to say she does not have a protectionist agenda and, despite the occasional worry about the loss of U.S. jobs to overseas factories, she has nothing against China.
“I wanted our story to be a friendly, nonjudgmental look at the ways ordinary people are connected to the global economy,” she said in an interview before the book appears in July.
Bo-ring and bullshit. Take a stand if you’re going to take a stand.
Oh, and you have mice in your house? Gross. And you’re trying to trap them with water bottles and a tuna can? Good fuckin’ luck.
