Did you see that Diane Sawyer has a special report coming up this
week? They removed ALL items from a typical, middle class family's
home that were not made in the USA .
There was hardly anything left besides the kitchen sink. Literally.
During the special they are going to show truckloads of items - USA
made - being brought in to replace everything and will be talking
about how to find these items and the difference in price etc..
It was interesting that Diane said that if every American spent just
$64 more than normal on USA made items this year, it would create
something like 200,000 new jobs!
WAS BUYING FOOD THE OTHER DAY AT WALMART and ON THE LABEL OF SOME
PRODUCTS IT SAID 'FROM CHINA’
FOR EXAMPLE THE "OUR FAMILY" BRAND OF THE MANDARIN ORANGES SAYS RIGHT
ON THE CAN 'FROM CHINA '
I WAS SHOCKED SO FOR A FEW MORE CENTS I BOUGHT THE LIBERTY GOLD BRAND
OR THE DOLE SINCE IT'S FROM CALIF.
Are we Americans as dumb as we appear --- or --- is it that we just
do not think while the Chinese, knowingly and intentionally, export
inferior and even toxic products and dangerous toys and goods to be
sold in American markets?
70% of Americans believe that the trading privileges afforded to the
Chinese should be suspended.
Why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges? DO IT
Simply look on the bottom of every product you buy, and if it says
'Made in China ' or 'PRC' (and that now includes Hong Kong ), simply
choose another product, or none at all. You will be amazed at how
dependent you are on Chinese products, and you will be equally amazed
at what you can do without.
Who needs plastic eggs to celebrate Easter? If you must have eggs,
use real ones and benefit some American farmer. Easter is just an
example. The point is do not wait for the government to act. Just go
ahead and assume control on your own.
THINK ABOUT THIS: If 200 million Americans refuse to buy just $20
each of Chinese goods, that's a billion dollar trade imbalance
resolved in our favor...fast!!
Most of the people who have been reading about this matter are
planning on implementing this on May 1st and continue it until June
1st. That is only one month of trading losses, but it will hit the
Chinese for 1/12th of the total, or 8%, of their American exports.
Then they might have to ask themselves if the benefits of their
lawlessness were worth it.
Remember, MAY 1 TO JUNE 1st !!!!!!
Send this to everybody you know. Let's show them that we are
Americans and NOBODY can take us for granted.
If we can't live without cheap Chinese goods for one month out of our
lives, WE DESERVE WHAT WE GET!
Pass it on, America...... BUY AMERICAN !!
