What do the Chinese Want? Anything "Made-In-America".

Chinese Buy 1 out of every 10 Homes Sold In California


Chinese are buying up millions of acres of prime USA farm land.

The standard of living in China is rising as fast as the standard of living in the USA is falling.

The Chinese have just completed the world's longest stretch of High-Speed Rail.. and they plan more.

Trains that travel 186 MPH will criss-cross China and further improve the standard of living.

Meanwhile, the USA is flushing Billions down a rat hole in the desert, while our roads crumble and drones hover over American cities keeping "dissent" in check.

wherein all of the employees are treated as disgruntled employees. And, why bother with occupation of the US, it's up for sale. The culture among some in the US is do anything for a buck.

We don't even have a country anymore, we have a bunch of quarreling tribes. TPTB know full well the US is decaying, hence all of the surveillance, militarization of police and the like. It's only a question of time or what will be the next catastrophe. One has to really have their head buried deeply and/or to be willfully ignorant to not see what's going on. The US is dividing and conquering itself, all by itself.

that drones are flying over US cities to keep "dissent in check"...I understand the frustrations I just don't like seeing us on the left make shit up out of thin air like so many of the right do. We have facts on our side so there is no reason to make unfounded claims that just make the person making those claims look out of touch & no better than an Alex Jones fan who thinks the NWO is coming for them & their guns.

I know some like to say Pres. Obama isn't going to do this or that, but who is it who offered up reforms to SS/Med first?

the billions are going in the bank accounts of several hundred plutocrats/owners of large corporations that love love love that sand war!

makes me sick... such shameful waste. and whereas Pres. Obama is a night n day difference in some ways to Romney, militarily, we're still wasting hundreds of billions on a pointless sand conquest.

China is a fiscal nightmare. There have already been disruptions. And somebody has probably already noticed the complete betrayal of the communist rationale.

Investing in China is just a bet that you'll get your money out before all-out civil war.
