Fiscally Conservative, Socially tolerant, Anti-War
Subsidizing Chinese mines. Similar, related to how Obama's auto bailout subsidized GM/Chrysler moving jobs overseas.
These people must still believe in the tooth fairy.
Processing one ton of rare earths produces 2,000 tons of toxic waste. China hires coolies and runs the stuff into the river.Small amounts are found in just about every modern electronic device and these devices are short-lived and simply thrown away. Since the discarded stuffis already purified, IMO thereis $$ to be made by recycling and reclaiming with our technological know how.Mines are a NIMBY problem, giventheir history of abandonment and toxic waste, so it is doubtful wewould resort to the Chinese methods.
Add to that the US unions forcing the mine companies here to fire massive numbers of workers and\or offshore.
