The U.S. Olympic team will be clothed in a very un-American fashion.
When ABC News staff had a first look at the Ralph Lauren designed 2012 uniforms last week, they noticed that every single piece of clothing was made overseas in China.
In this current time of record high unemployment, Ralph Lauren and the USA Olympic Committee should be chastised for outsourcing jobs to make the uniforms and should be boycotted for their un-patriotic practices.
The ugly, military-style outfits include Navy blue blazers, white pants, berets – French hats – ties and big Ralph Lauren polo horse logos.
The only people who wear berets in America are Green Berets, certain other military troops and the occasional hipsters or beatniks.
Since the uniforms are to represent the U.S. at the London summer games, Lauren and the Olympic Committee are essentially sending a message with this style that the United States wants to be seen as a military state – soon to be martial law police state.
Nanette Lepore, one of the top U.S. fashion designers, said to ABC that she was shocked that none of the uniforms had been made in the United States.
Also, Lepore said that it was “absolutely” possible that the athletes could have been outfitted in U.S.-made clothing. She said U.S. manufactures could have easily made the uniforms — and for less money.

“Why shouldn’t we have pride not only in the American athletes, but in the American manufacturers and laborers who are the backbone of our country?” Lepore said to ABC News. “Why? What’s wrong? Why was that not a consideration?”
ABC News contacted Ralph Lauren, Inc. and the U.S. Olympic Committee and asked why American-made clothing had not been selected for the athletes.
The committee stated: “The U.S. Olympic team is privately funded and we’re grateful for the support of our sponsors. We’re proud of our partnership with Ralph Lauren, an iconic American company.”

Recently, President Obama, Democrats, Independents and Occupy Wall Street Movement protesters have been bashing Mitt Romney for funding the outsourcing of U.S. jobs overseas while he was working for Bain Capital.
Senate majority leader Harry Reid said last Thursday the U.S. Olympic Committee should be “ashamed” for providing uniforms to its Olympians that were made overseas and suggested they be destroyed.
“They should take all the uniforms, put them in a big pile and burn them,” the Nevada Democrat told reporters at a news conference on a Democratic jobs bill.

Does the sun have the power to transform humankind?
In Solar (R)evolution, world-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers makes a compelling case, pointing to a wealth of scientific evidence that shows a remarkable correlation between increases in solar activity and advances in our creative, mental, and spiritual abilities.
We are in the midst of a dramatic rise in solar disturbances, which have the capability of disrupting the Earth’s geomagnetic field and, as a result, our global ecology. Broers, however, sees this not as an impending apocalypse but as the dawn of a new era.
Drawing on research from a variety of disciplines, he shows how erupting solar activity carries the potential to boost our brain capacity and expand our minds in ways we never imagined possible. Abilities now seen as extraordinary or supernatural—telepathy, extrasensory perception, and off-the-charts intelligence quotients—may soon become ordinary and natural and could very well help us solve the mounting global crises we are facing.
Humankind is going through an evolutionary leap, says Broers, and the process has already begun.
