Another US company gets shredded in Communist China‏

From Epoch Times:

There are few paper shredders in the world that can rip an A4 piece of paper into 2,000 pieces, and come with functions like SilentShred, SafeSense, and “100% Jam Proof”—and most that do have the name “Fellowes” printed on top. But consumers may soon be able to buy, say, the deluxe Powershred C-480Cx, without the Fellowes brand, because the company’s entire business in China has been stolen by its joint venture partner.

Over 1,600 workers at the joint venture facility in China turned up one day in August last year to find that the factory gates were locked, trucks had blockaded the entrances, and a group of rough-and-ready enforcers were telling them to move on.

If you live in the USA and you don't have a "last plane out" plan with some of your assets held securely outside of the USA please don't delay any longer. When you hear about capital controls being talked about on CNN and CNBC it will be too late, they will already be in place and your net worth will also be burnt toast.

And Americans died fighting the Nazis to protect the USA from.......?

From the US Bill of Rights ~
