US vs. China Challenge
I think this is a very simple challenge that could make a powerful statement to the world, so I am posting it and I urge you, if you are a US citizen or resident, to take it seriously and be a participant, if only for the month of August!
AUGUST 1st to Sept. 1st 2012
Did y’all see Diane Sawyer’s special report? 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 was interesting that Diane said 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? 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? You Can..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 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 Aug. 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 American exports. Then they might have to ask themselves if the benefits of their arrogance and lawlessness were worth it.
Remember, August 1st to Sept. 1st !START NOW.
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!
Pass it on, America …
Well, come to think of it, instead of doing it for just 1 month why not try to do it all the time.

hmmm… why stop Sept. 1st?
If you can go a month without,
or changing to USA products you
can do it permanently!
Hallelujah Randy, lambs being led to the slaughter and America doesn’t even know it. Kind of like the frog in the boiling water a little bit at the time.
I´m agree with your comments and the actions to take,
however, we should make a deeper analize of the global crissis.
Where the U:S:A: is trying to scape, the chinesse people have made it with cheap labor, to make the same job chinesse people spend just pennies when the american people need to earn moore to fullfill their needs, but have you ever wonder where the profits going? I´ll give you a clue: Only the 10% of the people hold the 90% of the goods worldwide, there is not equality whatsoever, is this fair? , maybe not, you think: Of course not. I always have been a man of Peace, and never will be at side of the war way.
Just think: How much cost a bullet, (About a $1.00), a carabin , a missil, a tank, an F18? a destroyer ship? and the list is endless. Instead to build a fight ship why not get all those money and share with the hunger people of Africa? maybe not get them tons of food but the tech to get their own? Las Vegas was built over a dessertic area, why not do it on the middle east? So many people over there would turn the hate into a different feeling and not to see the american people as the enemy, enemy No. 1.
Sorry I was dreaming, now back to reality: The people who make the war is the richiest of the world, the common people set the blood, where they harvest the profits.Yes I´m agree with you but as I said before, we all need to “atack” the problem from the righ angle.
Let´s start to build the peace on the world just as Michael Jackson on his song “Heal the world” says.
Regards and have nice day!
