To the Editor: If we wouldn't buy Chinese products . . .

All during the election both parties were bashing the Chinese badly and pointing to a lot of our problems being their fault. It seems to me if the American people weren't buying their products they wouldn't be shipping them to us.
Now that the election is over many U.S. businesses and politicians are visiting China to discuss their buying some of our properties and starting up business over here. On one hand that seems like a good idea by putting people back to work but when you realize the profits from those companies go back to China and they use those profits to buy more U.S. property.
I have trouble making sense of this. Years ago I loved visiting Yellowstone National Park to see the scenery and wild animals. I wonder in later years if my great-grandchildren would visit Yellowstone but not to see what I saw but to view and eat at the world's largest Chinese buffet and restaurant?
