My Chinese Footprint Getting Smaller

February 5, 2012

Plastic Piece on Earth

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Actually, I have been posting about , and boycotting, Chinese products for years.

Where my stuff comes from is important. The closer, the better. We try hard to buy local,organic, sustainable,and fair trade. We practice low- impact eating and mindful living.

We are not perfect at it. But over time our negative impact on the Earth has lessened while our dollars have stayed closer to home.  It is an ongoing process of personal growth and deepening commitment.

Since the 1990’s I have been taking an informal survey of persons wearing American flagged apparel. Also, when in  clothing stores I will look at the labels.  Ninety eight percent of the time the item is made elsewhere.

How about this sentiment on your infant’s onesie.  I guess if you disagree with our inherent militarism you ought to be shot.  That is the American Way to some.  They love to defend freedoms they don’t believe in.  As long as it involves shooting.  They see life as Win-Lose.

Please understand, I have no animus toward the Chinese people or culture.  I have much regard for them.  One might argue that a boycott would hurt the people.  If  this is so, they will turn and put added pressure on their government to do the right things.

Boycott China and Russia! Contact them here!

Russia and China have vetoed a key UN resolution on Syria calling for the resignation of President Bashar al-Assad” following the massacre of more than 200 people by security forces in the city of Homs. – Reuters

Russian and Chinese support for this regime runs deep.  What threatens one brutal government, threatens them all.

Assuredly, the protection of these two authoritarian states will embolden the miscreant – Bashar al-Assad. As we sit here, he resumes his slaughter of defenseless civilians.

I am not helpless.  I can let the idiots know I am not buying their stuff:

Plastic Piece on Earth

December 10, 2010

Keep the masses occupied
materially oriented.
Feed them “must see”
“must play” content.

Imply that jobs
are supposed to suck.
Escape through consumption!

Normalize excessive living
as life’s purpose.
Make it unpatriotic (or uncool)
to think otherwise.

Render freedom irrelevant.
