Just in from an email chainletter, I cut and pasted this bit below:

"The United States is losing more jobs to China. In fact, the United States is losing more high technology "green jobs" to China. Evergreen Solar, a company that manufactures solar panels, is closingtheir factory in Devon, Massachusetts and they are moving theirproduction facilities to China. This is going to result in the lossof 800 good American jobs. The following is what the company had to say in a statement about the move.... "Solar manufacturers in China have received considerable government and financial support and, together with their low manufacturing costs, have become price leaders within the industry." Is it any wonder that a recent survey found that 47 percent ofAmericans now believe that China is the world's leading economic powerwhile only 31 percent still believe that the United States is theworld's leading economic power?"

So what can we do about this? And the coming food shortage? We can grow hemp, as the Founding Fathers did. This could be a foundation for a textile industry, along with homegrown energy and hemp seed food products - high in protein and Omega oils. Right now, China grows most of the hemp in the world. Is the Chinese Communist Party secretly paying US politicians to keep it illegal so the US will not compete economically? Just a thought...
