Andy: All China has to do is to pick up the phone, call North Korea, and tell them to shape up. But they won't. China likes to create turmoil in the West, because it shows that they can. And they like to poke a stick into the eye of the West, and then say "Who, me?" China cannot be trusted, and we should use our massive trade with these pimps as leverage to pull them in line. China is responsible for North Korea, make NO mistake about it. China is looking to expand in the South China Sea, at their will, and we are letting it happen.
We need to stop doing business as usual with the Cheating Chinese, or use our trade as leverage, which we are NOT doing. We are buying too many products made by the Cheating Chinese, destined to overflow our landfills…those good Cheating Chinese folks who like to copy our CD’s and music, counterfeit our copyrights, sell our stories to the highest bidders, restrict free speech, make toys with lead paint, add melamine to milk, sell tainted toothpaste, contaminate baby formula, continue to pollute our air and water at record-setting pace, build products with flaws in every case, ignore fair trade laws, terminate pregnancies of female babies, stomp on our intellectual rights, subsidize their own businesses in order to dump inferior products onto the U.S. market, sell (knowingly) contaminated drywall, ramp up revisionist histories, tie women’s feet together, all in a political culture that thrives on the whipped backs of 12 year olds working 16 hour days.
Why are American politicians, businesses, and consumers so callous and near-sighted? For a few bucks, maybe? Suck it up, America, and reduce the China trade and business, and start manufacturing in the U.S. again. Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Home Depot, and America, GIVE US A CHOICE IN YOUR STORES: Add more non-Chinese products!! Pulling China in line will pull North Korea in line. America, Wake UP!!! World peace tomorrow depends on our actions today, and all of you can start that process in our stores.
