eric_holderOn Wednesday Feb. 18, 2009 Attorney General Eric Holder described the United States as a “nation of cowards” on matters of race, saying most Americans avoid discussing unresolved racial issues.

In a speech he gave in front of the Justice Department, to mark black history month, Mr. Holder stated that while the workplace is integrated socially, we are a nation that chooses to be voluntarily socially segregated.

“Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot in things racial, we have always been, and we, I believe, continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards,” Holder said at the Justice Department in Washington, D.C. “Though race-related issues continue to occupy a significant portion of our political discussion, and though there remain many unresolved racial issues in this nation, we, average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about things racial.

“This is truly sad. Given all that we as a nation went through during the civil rights struggle, it is hard for me to accept that the result of those efforts was to create an America that is more prosperous, more positively race-conscious, and yet is voluntarily socially segregated.”

Fair enough Mr. Holder, let’s discuss some racial issues:

Made in China

Are we Americans as dumb as we appear – or – is it that we just do not think?

Made in China

Made in China

While the Chinese, knowingly and intentionally, export inferior and even toxic products and dangerous toys and goods to be sold in American markets, the media wrings its hands and criticizes the government for perceived errors.

Yet 70% of Americans believe that the trading privileges afforded to the Chinese should be suspended.

Well, duh…why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges?

SIMPLY 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 with out. 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 refuse to buy just $20 each of Chinese goods, that’s a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our favor…fast!!

The downside? Some American businesses will feel a temporary pinch from having foreign stockpiles of inventory.  Waaahhhhhhhhhh

The Solution?

START NOW – Make a commitment to BUY AMERICAN!  American goods equals American jobs.
