It should be clear by now we are being colonized by China. Slowly but surely our country is slipping out of our hands and into the control of the Chinese government. They purchase our factories and steal our technology through “technology transfers,” which are forced upon companies attempting to stay afloat.

Have you been to the grocery store recently and bought fruits and vegetables that tasted bitter or maybe didn’t taste like anything at all? It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that the “fresh” fruits and veggies we are buying taste different since we are not buying them during a harvesting season.
