Canned food from China---Check the Cans
Check the Cans
Did you all see that Diane Sawyer has a special report coming up this
week on this very subject. They removed ALL items from a typical,
middleclass 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.
Made ME think!
Check the Can
I WAS BUYING FOOD THE OTHER DAY AT WALMART. 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.
TAKES FOREVER JUST TO BUY FOOD AND DO LABEL READING ! !
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.
Yet 70% of Americans believe that the trading privileges afforded to
the Chinese should be suspended.
Well, duh..why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges?
SIMPLY DO IT YOURSELF, AMERICA!!
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!!
The downside? Some American businesses will feel a temporary pinch from
having foreign stockpiles of inventory. Wahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!
The solution? Let's give them fair warning and send our own message.
Most of the people who have been reading about this matter are planning
on implementing this on March. 4th and continue it until April. 4th
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
will at least have to ask themselves if the benefits of their arrogance
and lawlessness were worth it.
Remember, March. 4th to April. 4th
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!
