    From 2001 to 2008 the Republicans moved 2.4 million jobs to China. They gave the Chinese subsidies for moving those jobs which helped in bringing Chinese here so American workers could train the Chinese to take their jobs. I know. They came to the company I work at.

    Of course, it seemed good for the economy. People were working, visiting Chinese were spending money.

    Then the training ended. The Chinese went home. Factories started closing. The US began hemorrhaging jobs at the rate of 750,000 a month.

    Some want to blame it on Bill Clinton for signing a bill that opened distribution points and communications in China.

    Distribution points: GOOD!

    Communication: GOOD!

    Entire Factories: BAD!

    Jobs: BAD!

    AND, in 2002, the only “rare earths” mine in the US was shut down. I wonder how much that cost the Chinese? How many politicians did they have to buy?

    Some say, “Let the free market sort it out”. Chinese are “communist/socialist” slave labor working for a hundred bucks a month and living in “dorms”.

    Is that future of the American worker? Communist Russia lost. China learned from Russia’s mistakes. Who is winning now?

    The worst part? America is still sending money to “China’s Poor”. Yea, we give "aid" to China!

    And Democrats can’t find a thing to run on. They are hilarious!

    Nations Wary Of Dependence On China's Rare Earths

    Annual global production of rare earth elements totals about 124,000 tons, according to a July report by the U.S. Congressional Research Service. World demand is expected to rise to 180,000 tons a year by 2012. By 2014, global demand could exceed 200,000 tons per year, according to the report.

    Concern about rare earth supply had been brewing long before September's restrictions to Japan, which Beijing still denies. To cope with growing demand at home, China has been reducing export quotas of rare earths over the past several years. In the second half of this year, the government has capped overseas shipments at 7,976 tons, down 49 percent from the first half, according to figures from China's Ministry of Commerce.

    --------------------

    They do this so companies that need components made from rare earths make sure those components are made in China.

    Wow, a communist country that doesn't believe in "free trade" sure knows how to take advantage of us.

    Or maybe Americans just love communists and socialists. Someone did.
