They have McDonald's all over China. They drink Coke all over the world. In Japan and England, they watch American movies. Heck, the British sitcom My Family makes references to American movie stars and the occassional author regularly. Despite being a primarily New Zealand movie, The Lord of the Rings had to go to Hollywood to be able to get the funding needed to make a movie of that scale, and the main character was played by an American (though he was perfect for the role, so I'm not complaining). I could probably come up with other examples, though most of them would be Canadian, but I won't right now. The point is, people use American things all over the world, so why shouldn't Americans use things made by non-American companies? If Californian's bought rice from China instead of growing their own, they wouldn't be depleting their water basins nearly as much.
