I have so many mixed thoughts (not mixed up, not confusion) today, all scrambled within in me, many related to the other and some related to nothing; it is difficult to translate into words. So, I will wait until I have them sorted to say anything at all, of substance.
I will say this: I see words written that people are stressed being locked inside. No one has locked you inside (in most cases anyway, unless you are in fact ill). If you are staying home, as you should, that doesn’t mean you can’t get out on your deck, your patio, or porch…….and yard. Get some sunshine. It’s good for health, and that includes mental health.
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
If China was unhappy with the trade deal with Trump before, they’ve put themselves in position to really hate it for the future. We shouldn’t be making a better deal just to keep the peace any longer. Look where that got us.
Everything, nearly everything comes from China. Look in your closet. Take an inventory of everything made in China. It is ridiculous! Look around you, pick an item up from in your house………..MADE IN CHINA! There is a better chance it is made in China than the USA, or nearly any other nation for that matter. Go to your kitchen, open the cabinets, or your medicine cabinet……..it’s likely made in China. Want a real education on the ratio of made in China vs. USA go to Hobby Lobby. I’d bet 90% is from China. It’s disgusting? This country (China) only uses us, now using us to death, literally.
We don’t need China, everything we need we can produce/manufacture. They need us!
This coronavirus/COVID-19 should change things. When this virus is over, mostly over, there should be business opportunities for many of us. Made in the USA products (new companies) should multiply like never before in the history of our nation. We are capable, we are more than capable. We are proving what we can do together, we can recreate capitalism in the USA………American made capitalism. Thats the New World I’m looking for, where the USA is more independent. We’d be putting more Americans back to work. Not dependent on anyone, especially China.
