  • There are certain foods like wheat and beef that the U.S. will probably never need to import.

    As for textiles, it would be interesting to see how the military would clothe itself in a war against China.

    • Ah, but then you run into every other problem concerning American manufacturing.

      You do that, our products will become too expensive for the American consumer, ultimately shutting down American farms. Then, our agriculture will also be in the hands of another country.

      I don't know about you, but it's scary to know that if we piss off the wrong country(ies), we have all of our raw material/textiles and manufacturing halted and choked.

      You want our foods in that death lock too?


      It's funny how you act all conservative and ****************, but wouldn't recommend that people should then be more thoughtful in their purchasing, less wasteful, and thus lower demand by eliminating waste. Oh god, what am I thinking? This is America, everything's about convenience and impulsiveness now.

        The other textile places not located in China

        There's quite a few in the DR, Honduras and, oh my, even on US soil. While Chinas textiles are cheap they're really low quality and shipping is much more expensive to get it from China as opposed to the places mentioned above. And before you call me an idiot again, I'll just let you know that I source textiles for a uniform company.

          What does being conservative have to do with not being wasteful?

              I'd definitely throw myself in the conservative camp, certainly fiscally, and I'm hardly wasteful. So again, I ask, what does one have to do with the other?

                CONSERVative.

                Srsly, what does being a conservative have to do with not wasting ****************?

                Or was that a lame, failed attempt at something?

                  I was going to go there, but I thought obvious was obvious.

                  • Oh perhaps he's referring to Conservatives and Liberals who run this country, yeah the ones who've collectively racked up a 3 trillion dollar debt.

                      I called you a dumbass. Idiot was Terman's medical term for an IQ below 20. And, I know very little about textiles. Your answer would have been my guess. I was more making a point that the military buys a lot from China. I just read that some of the textiles are made in the Netherlands. There were 457,000 Americans employed in the Textile industry in 2008, 63,000 fewer than the year before, and 25% fewer than 1997. In 1963, 5% of garments were made outside the U.S., by 2007 5% were made inside the U.S.

                          Man, it bothers me.

                            Our military doesn't buy a lot from China though. There is no strategic value of Chinese products in the military. Do you really think the government would let something like that happen? This is a pretty well known fact I thought. But what do I know I'm just an Idiot.

                              I couldn't agree with you more. You have to find about four studies that agree, before you can trust the first set of numbers.

                                Ok, I've learned something. What, I should have said is it would be interesting if the British and Australians went to war against China, or if the US went to war against the Netherlands.
