AUGUST 1st to Sept. 1st *Well over 50 yrs ago I knew a lady who would not buy Christmas gifts, if they were made in China . Her daughter will recognize her in the following. Did y'all see*Diane Sawyer's*special report? They removed A LL items from a typical middle class family's home, that were not made in the US A . There was hardly anything left besides the kitchen sink. Literally. During*the special they*showed truckloads of items - US A made - being*brought in to replace everything and*talked about how to find these*items and the difference in price etc.. It was interesting that Diane said " if every A merican spent just $64*more than normal on US A made items this year, it would create something like 200,000 new jobs "! I W A S BUYING FOOD THE OTHER D A Y A T W A LM A RT and ON THE L A BEL OF SOME PRODUCTS*IT S A ID ' FROM CHIN A '. FOR EX A MPLE THE "OUR F A MILY" BR A ND OF THE M A ND A RIN OR A NGES S A YS RIGHT ON THE C A N, ' FROM CHIN A '. I W A S SHOCKED. SO, FOR A FEW MORE CENTS I BOUGHT THE LIBERTY GOLD BR A ND OR THE DOLE BR A ND, SINCE IT'S FROM C A LIF. A re we A mericans as dumb as we appear --- or --- is it that we just do not*think.*The Chinese, knowingly and intentionally, export inferior and*even toxic products and dangerous toys and goods to be sold in A merican markets.* 70% of A mericans believe that the trading privileges afforded to the Chinese should be suspended. Why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges? DO IT*YOURSELF, A MERIC A !! 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 we are on Chinese*products, and you will be equally amazed at what we can do without. Who needs plastic eggs to celebrate Easter? If you must have eggs, use real*ones and benefit some A merican 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 A BOUT THIS: If 200 million A mericans each refuse to buy just $20*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* A ug. 1st and continue it until*Sept. 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 A merican exports. Then they might have to ask*themselves if the benefits of their arrogance and*lawlessness were worth it. Remember,* A ugust 1st*to Sept. 1st!!!!!! ST A RT NOW. Send this to everybody you know. Let's show them that we are A mericans 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 WH A T WE GET! Pass it on, A merica .... Well instead of doing it for just 1 month why not try to do it all the time.
