To the editor:
Julie Matchett had a good letter on the use of insecticides. However, the sad truth is that 99 percent of the people will not check the labels. Everything from our food supply to the clothing we wear is from countries that do not have restrictions, as we in this country do.
Every day we buy whatever it is that we need or think we need for the most part from a communist country made by slave labor. I would venture to say that 99 percent of the people do not care. We are making communist China the richest country in the world by our country's catastrophic greed. They are, each year, taking over our companies, cooperatives and our middle-class America.
When you buy clothing not made in America, you are buying slave labor clothing. When you buy unsafe food from China, you are saying it is OK with me. If you never check a label on a product you are buying, you are saying I don't care what happens to America.
Standing up for America is more than a yellow ribbon. It is writing your federal and state congressional leaders. It is standing up and being heard. It is putting forth some effort to defend what is being done to us on a daily basis. When communist China, whom Americans are making very, very rich and powerful, comes calling on us - and they will - you have no one to blame but yourselves.
