    Hello everyone, I'd like to introduce myself. I'm a silk merchant from Missouri. I just started my own shop and I'm taking some time out to learn more about political discussions. If your interested in learning more about me, I spent about 5 years living in Asia and now I'm back home.

    Well I spent around 5 years in China. I went to the countryside and saw the Kar mountains of Guangxi. I saw Guangzhou, the wild wild west of China. I took a motorcycle on the most dangerous highway in China just to see a factory district in Zheijiang. I mostly lived in Shenzhen and taught English for a living. Though, I wanted to get into trade but one of the worlds biggest traders started cutting out all the little guys. I nearly landed a job where a factory wanted me to sell their products on Amazon, it would have been good business but the base salary was too low. So I had to find a product and stick with it. I'm hoping to build up a brand with some of this generic silk I'm buying.

    Hao jyi-le! They've been fiddling with the romanization since I could speak it!
