In Good Conscience (a timely PSA)

UPC Barcodes do not show the leading zero. A UPC Barcode that starts with 7 would have a country code of 070 – 079.
000 – 019 U.S. and Canada
060 – 099 U.S. and Canada

Here is the current list of country codes for countries whose products perhaps you might want to avoid:

460 – 469 Russia
• 470 Kyrgyzstan
• 476 Azerbaijan
• 478 Uzbekistan
• 481 Belarus
• 487 Kazakhstan
• 488 Tajikistan
489 Hong Kong SAR
• 528 Lebanon
• 529 Cyprus
• 624 Libya
• 626 Iran
• 628 Saudi Arabia
• 629 United Arab Emirates
690 – 695 China, The People’s Republic
• 759 Venezuela
• 850 Cuba
• 860 Serbia
• 865 Mongolia
• 867 North Korea
• 868 – 869 Turkey
• 884 Cambodia
• 893 Vietnam
• 896 Pakistan
• 899 Indonesia
• 955 Malaysia
958 Macau


Thus ends our PSA covering countries not particularly friendly to the U.S.A. And just in case you noticed, Afghanistan has no code, it makes nothing and exports no finished product that one would buy.

Sadly, there does not appear to be any code specific to DC, but then their main product is BS and actions destructive to the nation (mostly lacking both barcode and Constitutional authority). Do try to remain solvent and avoid as much fallout as possible.

So, if we were actively trying to avoid buying products from China, how would that work? It certainly doesn’t leave much left to choose from. I am all for removing all of our manufacturing out of China — we never should have allowed it in the first place. But as Americans we are addicted to cheaper crap, and manufacturers are… Read more »

It sounds great in theory to say, “if we all do our part” and “we need to all row in the same direction”, but we can’t even collectively decide a simple thing like wearing a mask indoors and getting vaccinated in the middle of a deadly pandemic without taking sides and making it all about personality politics.

You completely misunderstood what I said. You also conveniently left out the period of time between 1865 and the beginning of the Second World War, where things weren’t running so great and corruption was the name of the game when it came to the power structure in this country. The Right has been trying like hell to take us back… Read more »

Iran Sees Highest Daily Coronavirus Cases, Deaths (AP)   Iran, grappling with its most severe surge of the coronavirus, on Sunday logged 39,600 new cases and 542 deaths.   The crush of new cases, fueled by the delta variant, have overwhelmed hospitals, with 6,462 severe cases reported Sunday.   Only 3.3% of the total population of 80 million has been fully vaccinated.

Joe Biden, famous for calling early lids, called one before noon on a Monday, raising questions about his fitness.
A lid is what Press Secretaries say to indicate to the media that no news will be coming out of the White House for the day once it is called.

I heard Biden had a conversation with his cabinet today

He later had a long chat to his toaster, reprimanded his sofa and then had a nice long nap.

Obama’s island luau made a mockery of everything the climate change clergy had been preaching for the last 30 or so years. If, say, Donald Trump had held such a party, they simply could have shamed him as the irredeemable sinner he was, the pariah who pulled America out of the Paris climate accord. But Obama is one of their… Read more »

Hmmm.

Biden had to extend the May 1st deadline that Trump had agreed to, but by and large, this is a Trump thing, not a… Read more »

Doubts more time would create a different outcome 4. The U.S. mission wouldn’t be clear 5.

36 days ago, President Biden told the American people that the Taliban would not take over #Afghanistan after he ordered the removal of U.S. troops. This didnt age well, did it? “The likelihood of the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the entire country is highly unlikely.” As of today, the Taliban control it all except Kabul. – Aug. 6 –… Read more »

Again, you conveniently overlook what got us here. Let me recap: 2016 – Trump ran on his “America First” platform, where one of his planks was to get the US out of Afghanistan “within thirty days”.

So, what have we learned throughout this entire exercise? Hopefully, the idea that ‘nation building’ does not work. Neither does military conquest and occupation. The US has spent 20 years invading and occupying Afghanistan. It has spent the better part of $6 Trillion to date. We’ve trained up an Afghan military of 300,000 complete with weapons, special forces, and air… Read more »
