Let me be the first to say...Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen is a very smart person. Why would anyone want to give the "blueprints" of the 50 State Capitol Buildings to a 5 & 10 cent store from the Ozarks! Oh! lets not forget that the Walton estate owns millions of shares in company's like First Solar.
People in America need to realize jus what got America in this shape..."cheap" yes so-call cheap items from a foreign land and now the largest company in America wants to make everything "green" but at the same time they put 95% made in China in their stores in China and support Chinese export...don't take my word...its on their China web page quote*Wal-Mart firmly believes in local procurement. We recognize that by purchasing quality products, we can generate more job opportunities, support local manufacturing and boost economic development. Over 95% of the merchandise in our stores in China is sourced locally. We have established partnerships with nearly 20,000 suppliers in China.*end quote!
Now! if there be 182 country's making items for the world to buy and they have only 5% of the pie in China...duh!
This company makes the nice people of China support their currency(yuan) by keeping it in their country working for the people there.... but with the "yuan" going up in value and the US dollar going down...all the foreign items that the American consumer buys thinking it is cheap has went up in price.
People...its all about the currency and to keep a currency strong you got to keep it floating around the country you live in so it can work for you. For the past 12 years all them US dollars are being shipped overseas to a foreign bank and with the American worker not making anything for the foreigner to buy the "we the people" have to turn to the "second" largest employer in America(Uncle Sam) to sell "we the people" debt in order to get all them dollars back!
50 years ago a foreigner would had given their left nut for a US dollar or a Hershey's chocolate bar and today the same foreigner has got Uncle Sam and the American consumer by both all the while Hershey is moving the chocolate factory to Mexico. Wake up! America and think "MADE IN AMERICA."
