The reason to identify the origin is so I can buy from any other country other than China.  They are not our friend.  There is nothing Anti-Oriental prejudice about not buying from China when your willing to purchase from any other oriental country.  I don't like China, they are a communist country that has brought this country to it knees with their lying.  I will not buy products from China.  So identify the manufacturer origin or I don't buy.  Trust me I see a lot of Chinese products sitting on the shelf.  If this new to you wake up.
