    O.K., so except for the guy digging in a cornfield, it seems like we could really help this situation by hiring American workers, instead of Chinese workers, encouraging Chinese students to go to college in China, instead of US universities, manufacturing products in the U.S. instead of China, and it would help if rich Americans didn't "partner" with rich Chinese in an effort to get even richer.

    Many of these companies complaining seem to want to be able to increase their profit margins by doing their manufacturing in China, instead of the US, but then cry foul when the Chinese "steal" their technology. Maybe if they were willing to make a few less million or billion per year, and produce their goods in the U.S., they could keep their technology in the U.S.?

    I know, it isn't as easy or simple as all that, but really, they don't want to complain because they want to keep making their products in China, and making tons of money in China, but they do want the government to fix it for them?

    They want to eat their cake and have it too, and it is putting all of us at risk.
