No Surprise

A U.S. report finds that China abuses human rights. But we knew that.

Why are we trading with this country?

Look, folks, I know it's hard. Practically every item you need to buy, from juice glasses to shoes to bedsheets to tuna fish is made in China. It's really, really hard to avoid it, but we all need to try. If our government won't stop supporting this nation that tortures its citizens, forces women to abort their babies, steals property, bans free speech and the freedom of religion, etc., etc., etc., we all need to vote with our pocketbooks.

Read labels. Choose Made-in-the-U.S.A when you can, or made in nations that protect their citizens. If your only option is Made in China, consider buying the item used so China doesn't get your money. Think about the impact it would be if every man, woman and child in the U.S. spent just $1 less a month on made-in-China goods.
