I always thought Microwave ovens killed off Tupperware. The company just didn't keep up the newer and better microwave proof products.

How much you wanna bet that cheaper Mexican labor does not result in cheaper Tupperware products?

The 50's era of Tupperware parties is long gone. It was a great marketing strategy for as long as it lasted.

It was a good product. I wish I still had some. I did buy something on Ebay once but it turned out to be a knock-off that wouldn't burp.

Do you hear the burping sound? That's the sound of jobs moving to Mexico

Dr libs only know one truth...if it's good, it must be Dem, if it's bad, it must be Rep. Even when you throw irrefutable evidence at them, which has been done countless times on this board, they still refuse to ever believe any liberal is nothing but the epitome of perfection.

Who knows moving the factory there might be a good thing. It will keep the majority of their current workforce working closer to home and legal. They won't have to travel so far sneaking around and such. Hire them here or there... same people will be making your Tupperware.

We Americans are gutless wonders afraid to protest for really worthwhile reasons such as keeping our nations jobs and economy healthy and in USA. When China and NAFTA etc all started stealing our consumer production market is when we should have demanded production either remain in USA or we will not purchase imported products. But we have a media and money changers who keep us docile and compliant to their greed and needs. Free trade was never free.

Actually I supported Occupy Wall Street and Obama too until he reneged and shut down Occupy WS in Zuccotti Park and gave his corrupt Wall Street Ceo pals our taxes. F Obama and lying Dems. They hate America.

Their only priority is ruining America amd bringing in low life clueless voters too lazy to go to polls and that have nothimg in common with citizens. Everyone of the Dem invaders need deported and removed from our society by force if needed.

If you actually cared about wall street corruption there's zero chance obama not being populist enough would make you join the cult of a fake billionaire con man.

My mind has been made up for years. Leftists are a true threat to all nations that want peace, tranquility, safety and a solid economy for all citizens and to keep mtherFg trash out of our country just like we keep them out of our community. Those responsible for harming society need to pay the ultimate price.

And you support a vile piece of s**t that used illegal immigrants to steal americans jobs, who uses Mexico, China and other slave wage nations to manufacture his crappy products and who signed a tax that ACCELERATED moving jobs overseas by reducing tax rates.

Save you bulls**t.

It's far cheaper to live in Mexico so it balances out. Actually... the NAFTA was about sending jobs there to keep the people there from coming here... (except the farm workers) but most importantly to extract ourselves from the grip of OPEC which it successfully did. True story.
We were supposed to go all high-tech making most of our money from "services" (like our war machine) business expertise and intellectual property. They make up the lion's share of our exports eclipsing the manufacturing sector Those factories-type manufacturing jobs (they promise to return) were intentionally moved as part of plan propelling us into this century... and here we are... unprepared... to rule the world.

Are you suggesting the death penalty for J6 insurrectionists?

I was thinking life in prison would be sufficient but, ok. You do you..

26. Leftists are citizens? LOL! Since when?

We need citizens that are actually patriots and support our Constitution. Leftists and Dems are radical anarchists that support only lies and identity politics and weird perversions. "The View" itself represents an irrational left that serves zero rational purpose except to create more hate and divide.
