It's not so much new crap on the roads. It's the cut-every-corner-so-we-get-max-profit and quality-be-damned attitude of companies these days. Stuff is absolute garbage now.
Guess they have to be that way to survive all the regulations .. and taxes.
Agree with your first paragraph Smitty, not so much the second. I think consumers are just as much to blame as the business. Just look at all the Dollar stores around, and all the junk they are filled with.
It drives me nuts when I take things apart only to find how corners were to bring a "lower cost product" to market. I could go on all day about this.........
Anyway, it's good to hear someone else who is as dissatisfied as I am with the state of the junk we are fed today. Take care my friend.
