    Default The Chi-Com's

    Hopefully the negotiation team for the US is smarter than MSM.

    The Chi-Coms announce they are thinking of buying some farm products: Pork, alfalfa & soybeans.
    WSJ had an article about the Chinese ownership of some irrigated UT alfalfa farms. SFD (largest
    pork producer in the US) was bought lock stock & barrel a couple of years ago by the Chinese. The
    Swine Flu in China has caused pork prices to rise 47% in the last year. Because of the rains in the
    Midwest there is a good chance commodities will be in short supply.

    if you're buying from yourself who benefits?

    On a different note: with all the computer folks getting rich by offshoring they have created this issue.
    Seems the folks doing the grunt work have also figured out how to do a lot of the design & the design
    capabilities of Silicone Valley are now falling behind the Chi-Coms in area that make the US vulnerable.
    You have to love the forward thinking of the intelligentsia!

    As I think I mentioned a while back, the drone industry is basically totally owned by the Chinese. If you have had any exposure to the capabilities of current consumer drones costing as little is a few hundred bucks, you should be pretty concerned. The technology in these little "toys" is unbelievable. I can, with the use of the proper software, go to google earth and draw a line around the perimeter of an area, load the information into my drone, and the drone will fly the area at a specified altitude shooting a photo every X distance to give overlapping images which will map the area with resolution fine enough to read the beer cans in a dumpster. If the battery gets low, the drone will return to base, land itself, wait for a fresh battery to be installed, then go back to exactly where it stopped and complete the assignment. ALL Chinese technology.
    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.

    The Reds will beat us in renewable energy tech/green energy too if our leadership continues to ignore the future while planting their heads in yesterday. Like trying to revive a dying industry in coal. Other than Exxon and Koch Industries' R&D, we would way behind them. USA can NOT afford to cede to them the lead in the fastest growing energy field.
    “The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” U S Constitution
    This entire impeachment process is just going to be all about knocking down the most offensively stupid arguments from Trump supporters.

    On which planet do you reside?

    Trump has been and still is against renewable energy! Not only does he think Global Warming to be a Chinese hoax, he has stated that windmills cause cancer. That when the sun isn't shining the wind not blowing that people would be out of that energy. I can't remember any politician making more unfounded and stupid comments regarding energy. He thinks the future is coal and oil.

    And, if you think our team negotiating with the Chinese are smarter, then you are sadly mistaken. That's why Trump's team is now looking for any morsel they can get from the Chinese so he can end this stupid trade war and declare victory. Sad part is that his cult will believe him!
