That's just plain ignorance.
You would like to call Mervin if you have a problem with your board?
You think if you call Burton or K2, you're going to be transferred to some call center rep in China who can't speak a lick of English.
Where do you think your cellphone is made? Where do you think your nice and shiny big screen LED tv is made? Where do you think your durable clothes are made?
Do you really think some slaveshop workers in China are designing the boards?
This whole "Buy American" mentality is truly ignorant and laughable.
I don't think it's laughable, I mean our economy is crap right now because of those purchases outside of the US, not saying I never purchase something because of where it was made but if I had an option I would hope to get something from the US at a comparable price.
