Why do people complain about jobs going over seas but yet they buy products made from over seas?

Like Apple's iPhone/ iTouch which is designed here, but made in China. Or the clothes that people buy. A lot of them are made out side the U.S. Many products in Wal-mart are made over seas as well, yet people flock to Wal-mart everyday. To me it seems hypocritical that people verbally complain about what they physically support. Then they start complaining that its i****************s that take our jobs, which might be true, but its only a small fraction of what big corporations do by manufacturing a lot of products over seas.

We don't have too much choice when it comes to buying products made overseas. What else is there? I can buy an American made car, but parts will come from China. I will only buy toys made in the US or maybe certain other parts of the world (other than China), but they are hard to find. Whatever I can possibly buy that... More

Probably because they're uneducated about stuff like this. Also, maybe they think, "So what if I buy something made in my country. It won't make a difference" Then when they buy something foreign little do they know they are making a difference, and not a good one.
