    Hmmm... China extorting countries???

    It would appear China is on the move (prowling)...
    Trying to spread their influence around the world.

    Before one dismisses this as 'not our problem'... one might remember that China does LONG range planning... and since the govt does not change like ours does... they can continue a long range plan over decades.
    Add to this... China has a horrible record on:
    Human rights
    Corruption
    Financial blackmail
    Outright fraud
    Just to name a few...

    IMO the USA needs to watch China more than we need to worry about Russia...
    After all: the ONLY product Russia has to export... is energy... and the USA could flood the market, resulting in lower prices, which would crush Russia... if we wanted to.

    What does the US stand for ???

    Freedom......

    Its the job of business to make money... and for these large corps to make as much profit as possible for the shareholders.

    Thats why China is where they are at now...... buying from them... having them make ones product..... allows the corps and shareholders to glean more profit...... and in business...... thats all that matters.

    Buy American..... yea... why not...... Because most folks.. no matter how patriotic... are not going to pay for something made in America.... when it costs 3-4 times the same product made in China... or Thailand... or some Caribbean or south of the border hell hole.

    China got its claws in Africa now... and South America...... setting themselves up pretty dang good for the future..... what with all the natural resources on those continents. We just sit back....... AMERICA FIRST... lol..... while the world passes us by..... like some old bat driving down the road in her 92 taurus...... 15 in a 50 mph zone..... oblivious to the cars screaming around her... cussing and honking and stuff.

    Dont give me the oppressive taxes and regulations excuse either...... We still have US manufacturing... and many foreign nations come here to set up manufacturing..... Americans could do it...... might cost a bit more.... but they could do it...... but.. would Americans be willing to pay the increased costs.....

    Probably not. Most Americans would rather see factories pick up and leave the US than have to pay more for their favorite products that they dont need.
