Do not buy Chinese. It'll cost you a little more now, but it will save you a LOT later. They want you dead

It's not like Chinese products weren't cheap trash anyways. Many people learned their lesson about quality over quantity.

Im not buying from Winnie the Pooh. My next project is a Chrome extension like Honey or Wikibuy that checks products if they're American made or not, and alerts you if not.

Go for it. Time to start a movement and start chipping away at their foothold

Talk to me come July. Just in the capturing ideas stage, have to finish another project atm, then full steam ahead in June.

God speed on your current project (so that you can get on this one 😉). I wanted to say fuck your current project, MAGA first, but you never fuck with a persons living. Let me-us know how we can help, be it beta testing, coding, data sourcing, etc.

Thanks! A lot. It means quite a bit, tbh. Current project, sadly, doesn't excite me as much as the MAGA project, but current project will add $3k-$8k/mo in pure net revenue. It's a big deal for me. Means going PT or quitting my job completely, giving me my time/week back.

The MAGA extension is just the beginning. I have a couple more ideas, one of which is scraping and messaging the original pedes usernames from 2016/2017 TD and inviting them here. I'm unbelievably tired of tech being ruled by leftist males. This site, .win, encouraged a lot.

We're gonna fight fire with fire.

That's phenomenal. Good for you. Hopefully it's on the higher end and something that grows bigger than Rosie O'Donnell with time. Good luck.

What a fantastic idea. So you're basically going to write a script to do the scraping that will pipe the output into a database, and walla. Love it. Shouldn't be too much of a resource hog.

I agree with you on the tech part. It's going to be the downfall of our side if we don't take major steps to have a foothold in tech. We have to counter. The way they are, currently, able to reach and influence (more like manipulate) the masses, it favors their side. Like they did with universities. I'm going back into tech myself after a hiatus.

CURRENT SPEED: 358,569,385,117,000 MPH!

At that rate, it would take approximately 4.68 years to travel to the Andromeda Galaxy (2.5 million light-years)!

Is like something like this. Easier to avoid China.

That's a great idea! You could call it Mia (made in America). Would it tell you the country of origin? as I wouldn't mind buying from some of our friendly trade partners.

1776-or-1984 3 points ago +3 / -0 (edited)

I like MIA, that's great!

It will be 3 phases:

1st, Made in America greenlight. That's the easy part.

2nd, tell you every country of origin. This is the longest, perhaps never ending part. Very difficult to ascertain a supply chain for every product ever, lol.

3rd, user can opt to red light countries, ie China.

I'm doing it in this way, because if I just made a "Fuck China and commies" extension, it would most likely get yanked from the Google store because lefties would complain about it until it's gone.

That's a great idea, my man. I would definitely use something like that. I wish I had some coding skills, I always have ideas for games or apps I'd like to make. I've been keeping busy during the lockdown working on artwork (I'm a semi-professional graphic illustrator) for a card game I'm making.

85% of everything I ever learned was from a guy whose been in software for a decade, named Jonas Schmedtman, on Udemy, for around $100-$200. PM me for more info if you decide you wanna dip your toe in. The water's warm lol.

5 years ago I thought the same "wish I had some coding skills".

2 years ago I actually did something about it, lol, enrolled and away I went. Full stack MERN dev now.

A difficult thing to be completely non China reliant, as so many precursors and raw materials come from them. But we should do as much as we can. The only way to truly hit them back is economically.

A difficult thing to be completely non China reliant,

Not really. Difficult with globalists infiltrating Western governments, sure. But China has nothing we don't have.

OhLollyLollyPop 3 points ago +3 / -0

Not a problem, but we better hurry to teplace all of the things we don't make here anymore... and it's a hell of a lot of things!
