What China can afford and what China can buy are two different things, I believe. That is, if it's not for sale to China, it cannot be bought by
What they are buying is US LAND! With the Food Safety Modernization Act set to drive US farmers off the land in 2012 and the housing market collapse
all that nice rich farmland will be for sale CHEAP.
"At a recent ceremony at the White House, Vice President and presidential candidate Al Gore let slip what many have long believed was his real
intention as regards to U.S. agriculture.
"While presenting a national award to a Colorado FFA member, Gore asked the student what his/her life plans were. Upon hearing that the FFA member
wanted to continue on in production agriculture, Gore reportedly replied that the young person should develop other plans because our production
agriculture is being shifted out of the U.S. to the Third World." showcase.netins.net...
American Farmland must have been part of the deal Clinton made with China when he sold the USA out.

Farm bill. He even admits it!
Today's global food crisis shows "we all blew it, including me when I was president," by treating food crops as commodities instead of as a
vital right of the world's poor, Bill Clinton told a U.N. gathering on Thursday.
UNITED NATIONS, Oct. 23, 2008
President Bill Clinton... publicly apologized last month for forcing Haiti to drop tariffs on imported, subsidized US rice during his time in
office. The policy wiped out Haitian rice farming and seriously damaged Haiti’s ability to be self-sufficient.
Clinton's signing of laws that repealed the McFadden Act of 1927, the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 and the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956 lead to the
Formation of Mega Banks. He is also responsible for the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 and the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of
2000 that was responsible for marginal mortgage loans doomed to fail and the unregulated CDSs used to insure the banks against foreclosure.
The housing market collapse lead to a drastic drop in land prices and no buyers. It is absolutely NO coincidence that the Food Safety Modernization
Act of 2010, guaranteeing the loss of America's independent farmers and Obamacare containing the 1099 change severely hampering small business growth
and formation were just passed.

lose the land to fines by the US government.
To give you an idea of what farmers are facing in 2012, this is from HR 875.and is cut and paste directly from HR 875 with nothing added.
