We've come a long way to be so far behind. Took a wrong turn and cannot seem to find the way. I surely hope we wake up soon.

Yikes. It IS sadly too true, but on some level, we have done it to ourselves.

Yes it is very sad but I find it very encouraging that people are starting to talk about this and doing something about it...that's the first step.

Callie said...

Yes, funny and sad but a lot of truth too!

I found this was too true to be funny. Here in Canada, it's equally difficult to buy homegrown and home-produced: whether it's food or clothing, housewares, etc. We have a big Canadian company, Captain Highliner, that packages fish (fish sticks, frozen fillets...). The fish used to come from Canada's Alantic coast, but you guessed it...now it's from China.

My son says there is a province in China that is the GMO capital of the world...ongoing experiments in genetic modification. It sickens me almost to the point of tears.

But remember that the Lord knows all about the greed and corruption that is going on behind the scenes: it's not hid from the Lord. James ch. 5 applies to what is going on, regarding greedy corporations and cheap labour (the reason American companies are outsourcing their production to China, Mexico, etc). Sorry, I feel a rant coming on :-(
