Right now, there is a huge uproar about the fact that the Olympic uniforms, which were provided by Ralph Lauren, was made in China. After the news broke, a lot of people became infuriated. Some people have even said that the Olympic committee should be so ashamed of themselves that they should burn the uniforms.
Obviously, if the uniforms had been created in America, it would have made more jobs available to Americans, yet they decided to outsource the production of the uniforms. I was just wondering what everyone else is thinking about this issue. Do you agree that the decision to outsource the uniforms was a stupid decision or do you think everyone is getting their panties in a bunch over nothing?

Either way, Iím going to go and play the US Olympics game now and I wonít have to worry about the outsourcing of uniforms either way. These uniforms were created digitally Wink. Iíll post the link if anyone wants to play with me:

Keep in mind the one with his knickers in a major wad was Senator Harry Reid. I do have an issue with them being made in China, since we have the ability to have had them made here. I would feel the same if our US military outsourced their uniforms. The reason I say burn them isn't they were made in China but I think they are freakin' ugly! The best quote I've seen is "Why are those Frenchmen holding our flag." Smile
