ISSUE # 1B WE NEED TO BE MORE RESPONSIBLE WITH OUR OWN NUCLEAR WASTE
ISSUE # 4 CHINA IN GENERAL
I'd be saying the same thing if I lived in China and I found out the US were doing these things. No matter where you live, you have to have some common sense when it comes to national security. If you are in China, you would be smart not to do business with a business associated with the United States Military and if you live in the US you are smart not to do business with a company that has ties to the Chinese Military.
Imagine a Chinese company that has ties to the Chinese Liberation Army, the company was actually started by a former member, and that company comes knocking on the door of the United States of America and says "Excuse me, but we want to do a great favor for you. We want to be the ones to provide you with the telecommunications services for your nation's first responders in the case of a national emergency. Let's get started!" You'd have to be pretty dumb to think that's a good idea. Seriously. That's like having the fox guard the chicken coop.
We'll guess what? That invitation actually came!
The government was smart enough to say no thank you to that deal. After all, any sports fan knows you don't give away your game plans to a competitor or a chief rival, right?
The story gets better. This same company, the one that has ties to the Chinese Military, figures those darn Americans, they won't let us in the front door, let's try the back door instead! So you know what this company does just one month later? They purchase a 49% share in Symanetic, the computer company that supposedly guards the security of our computers! Who approved that deal??? If there's a deal that needs to be rescended it would be that one!!
My hunch is Symantic probably got a good chunk of change for agreeing to that deal and I doubt they were thinking hum...wonder what the Chinese might do when they have access to the things we do.... Of course not! The money is too good for us to be thinking about something as trivial as national security! Thank you China and now let's get on with spending the $$ from our new found wealth!!
This is really wrong to be doing. Check out why here.
Meantime China has got to be thinking we are the most stupid, naive, selfish, greedy fools on the face of the earth because basically by Symantic agreeing to the deal they are doing all the things mentioned above.
This points to the root of many of our problems in America today. We are overrun by corporate greed. Corporate america is NOT thinking about how things affect us as citizens down the road, they are thinking about how good things can get for THEM, today, right now. This corporate behavior of being stupid, selfish, and greedy has got to stop. It has become the way other nations view our country which is so wrong. Our nation as a whole is not like that. Same goes for China. Their nation is not like that either. The average citizen does not believe it is right to taint foods for example to make them cheaper and unsafe but there are plenty of people in China doing it right now to make a bigger profit not only for their only their people to eat but for your family to eat too (see blog on why no food from China).
THINK ABOUT THIS FOR A MINUTE...
Think about this for a minute. China is making 40.5 Billion per month and has been doing so since July 2005.http://news.yahoo.com/analysis-china-needs-policy-course-capital-tide-turns-061310882.html
That's a lot of money! That's a lot of money to be doing whatever they want to become the world's superpower..stealing technology...building their military, etc. How the heck do they make that kind of money?? Simple. Because of us. As citizens we have been choosing year after year to by cheap China, dumping our hard earned money over there. If we care anything about the future of the United States, its got to stop.
Buying Made in China is not only decimating our labor force --buying Made in China supports their labor force. Ultimately it also ruins our country because while our economy continues downward because, in part, many of our jobs have been sent to China putting USA workers out of work, meaning they can't make purchases, they can't invest and buy here in the US, and less money in our economy means we have to do things like cut back our military, cut back in investments in technologies, and cut back in education for future generations. How will that ever build a strong country??
China on the other hand, thanks to our purchasing cheap things from them that ends up in our landfills, continues to get stronger, and stronger, and stronger because of our need for cheapness. Their technology improves. Their military gets stronger. Everyday they are one step closer to becoming the world's superpower. We've got to change this by each one of us voting for the USA with our wallets and stop sending so much of our money over to China. Search out USA alternatives for whatever it is you need and if none can be found, purchase from any other country besides China. We need to start balancing things out. Right now the scale has tipped very far in China's favor and we need to develop more equity across the board by not choosing China. Our money is better in the hands of USA workers if at all possible, and if not, seek out an alternative to China.
ISSUE # 4B CHINA BUYING UP AREAS IN OTHER COUNTRIES (INCLUDING OURS)
From a Chinese Newspaper
The Chinese Government Is Buying Up Economic Assets And Huge Tracts Of Land All Over The United States
And from the horse's mouth directly: Idaho.gov website
Interesting it says here "Foreign Direct Investment recruitment will be successful in Idaho as we expand our reach into Canada, Europe, Latin America and Asia."(a.k.a. China) Don't they mean, "Foreign Direct Investment recruitment will be successful in China as they allow as they expand their reach into the US?
ISSUE #5 MONEY HAS GOT TO GET OUT OF POLITICS
Need I say more?! Money in politics is at the root of most every problem we have an our country. Think about that. Must watch article and videos here. Our founding fathers must be turning over in their graves. This isn't how it was supposed to be. We MUST find a way to get money out of politics.
Look, my two oldest kids are in 3rd and 4th grade. They are learning about how our gov is a representative gov, meaning they represent US.
The way things are going now, their textbooks are not giving it accurately. In order to give a more accurate account, textbooks should be rewritten to say we have a rep gov where politicians are elected to then make decisions to best represent their own self-interests.
Is this what we want for our country going forward??
Any adult in this country should be disgusted by this. Anyone who cares about the future of the United States should really be ashamed that things have gotten this bad and we should all work together to make things right. We can't have a strong healthy nation with this crap going on. A really good starting place would be to get money/favors out of politics so that honest representation can begin.
