Gee, if only the U.S.  was an oil producing nation…..
Hey, wait a minute!!! we are; what the hell happened ?!!

HERE’S SOME INFO FROM THE INTERNET…..
Very good information since reports have come out that the age of American dominance will end in 2016 with the emergence of China as the leading country in the World.
Did you see that Diane Sawyer did a special report where 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 showed truckloads of items – USA made – being brought in to
replace everything and talked about how to find these items and the difference in price etc..
It’s 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!
I 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 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!!
If most of the people who are reading this matter would plan to implement 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 arrogance and lawlessness were worth it.
