Now would be a good time to stock up on generators, shotguns, and beef jerky. 🙂
I personally have no issue with China, however it’s insane for a nation’s (in this case the US) infrastructure and products to largely be made not only outside said Nation, but by a country that openly does not have the best interest of the US in mind.
How the hell is it allowable for everything you get in Walmart and Target to be made in China? Could it be because companies that had their start in the US, and make their money from the US, feel they owe no allegiance to the US in terms of maintaining a strong economic base or paying taxes in the areas they are generating revenue. Increasingly companies view governments, meaning the people, as a means to an end, a sponge they can squeeze when they require lubrication.
And if that sounds vulgar, it is because what companies are doing through lobbying and buying of representatives and mandating of laws… is vulgar.
And bringing it back to a tech bent, IBM/Lenovo is virtually a Chinese company and our Government Infrastructure and Security is dependent on Chinese made computer hardware such as this. How is that conducive to security?
In such an environment China would be stupid not to take advantage of the US’s desire to put greed and low cost above security and a stronger domestic economic base.
Am I advocating buying American? I’m advocating something even more radical. I’m advocating buying and producing locally. I’m advocating the ability of a family to support themselves, regardless of what another City or State or Country does.
I’m advocating a return to local farmers, and local tailors, and local manufacturers.
Radical, isn’t it? 🙂
Okay, that’s all the time for now. More NEWS YOU CAN USE later.
