Default Re: Need some moral advice

I think your moral dilemma is whether you can afford to be adding to your toy collection right now, not whether to buy a Korean rather than an American product.

If you can afford it, buy the damn reel. My dad was an immigrant and a Marine who lost buddies in Korea. Everyone in the world has a right to basic human dignity and a decent way to earn a living, not only Americans. The United States didn't spend the last 65 years and the blood of a lot of patriots trying to bring (at least part of) Korea into the free, first world international community, only to boycott their competitive products out of some misplaced sense of national pride now that we have finally succeeded.

If you can't afford it, don't buy it, and don't even think about getting an English-made Perfect or a US-made Saracione instead.

(By the way, do you have a cell phone? Where is it made? How about your computer and monitor?)
