PEARL: Remember to support America

| December 5, 2010 11:57 AM

The year 1941, December the 7th, Japan bombed our whole Pacific fleet, killing thousands of our family members. Then many of the Pacific Islands - Iwo Jima, Saipan, Guam, the Solomon Islands.

Thirty-five years ago, my hero after John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, went to Japan for a visit. After getting off the plane and the fanfare he said, "Remember Pearl Harbor."

So I'm thinking, why are we selling out to Japan? Buying their cars, motorcycles and electronic products. It blows my mind.

Now we're building communist China's economy. We are in hock to China for $3 trillion. Our national forests are the collateral. What if they collect on the debt? Maybe we still have state forests.

We boycotted Cuba for many years, our neighbor 80 miles away. China still has slave labor and kids working for 50 cents an hour.

Now American companies can't compete so they ship the business overseas and still ship their products back home for less than they can make it here. Other countries own one third of our country. It's very seldom that you will find things made in the U.S.

Sears, Penneys, Kohls, K-Mart, Costco, Walmart, the greed of all the big companies, the banks and Wall Street are all selling us out. We will be a Third World country! Fifteen million illegal people here are sucking up our medical, Social Security and jobs.

Good luck, America. Please rent the Pearl Harbor video.
