    their seed corn now.  They don't seem to care, either.  They'll just move on to the next hot market (India, China) and pick their bones clean over time.  We'll be just another Third World hell hole by then.  They'll move their homes to "safer" places and leave us to fight over the scraps and the bodies.  I wish I knew a nice way of fixing this.  There just isn't.
