America got sidetracked by taking down Saddam while the Bush/Cheney regime should have been the evil ones we should have removed from power. These were far worse then Saddam.

Yes and many of them still wonder why we can't get out of the deep hole they dug us in. America learned a hard lesson and I hope they never allow such evil humans to remain in power twice ever again. Believe me because of them we all are suffering. There is probably a good Chinese proverb that explains this strange happening.

China's trade still smaller than that of US: China Commerce Ministry

BEIJING: The Chinese Commerce Ministry today contradicted reports that China has overtaken the US to emerge as the world's biggest trading country.

China's combined export and import volume in 2012 still ranked behind that of the US when using the same method to measure, the Ministry said today.

The Ministry expects the country's total international goods trading to be USD 15.64 billion less than that of the US according to the measurement adopted by the World Trade Organization (WTO), state run Xinhua news agency reported.

The announcement is in response to a previous report by the state run CCTV that China, with its foreign trade amounting to USD 3.867 trillion in 2012, has overtaken the US as the world's biggest goods trading nation.

The US Commerce Department has released two sets of figures for its international goods trading USD 3.82 trillion (based on international balance of payments) and USD 3.882 trillion (based on the measurement which is similar to the WTO's measurement), an MOC official said.

The WTO usually adopted the latter figure in its annual international trading report that is due to be released late February or early March, the official added.

China's export and import volume increased 6.2 per cent year on year to USD 3.867 trillion in 2012, according to the data issued last month by the General Administration of Customs. This was higher than the USD 3.82 trillion in goods registered by the US Commerce Department.


HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

China HUMILIATED by the CCP yet again!

This stupid Chinese Communist Party regime LIES SO MUCH it can't even keep its lies straight!

"The announcement is in response to a previous report by the state run CCTV that China, with its foreign trade amounting to USD 3.867 trillion in 2012, has overtaken the US as the world's biggest goods trading nation. "

SO FUNNY watching these moronic Chinese Communist Party CLOWNS spinning in circles grasping for the next plausible lie to spew!

As the CCP crumbles in factional confusion, the clueless lying right hand does not even know what the corrupt and lying left hand is up to!

Chinese Communist Party CLOWNS are FUNNY!

The wealthy and corporations are like an Intelligent woman. If their man( Or country) insults them and beats them they will go where they are treated with respect.
Today the USA treats those with drive and ambition with disdain and insults and demands they support the lazy. Is it any wonder many are going overseas to places like China to make their fortune?

There has always been an element of society that has maintained the entitlement mentality.
The only problem now is its being encouraged, celebrated and nurtured as the American dream and is growing by leaps and bounds.
The American dream is now to get entitlement and never have to work again. My how we have changed.

Labor unions have been losing membership for the last 25 years. Big business does'nt want to pay out 7.25 an hour where many have to work. Supporting big Greedy Corporations and their way overpriced CEO's is not the answer. Would you work for 7.25 an hour? I have heard folks whine about labor unions for the past 30 years and in most southern states they have little influence. Clothing manufacturers were'nt content paying Bibb City workers in the 70's 3.00 and hour so they went to Mexico where the minimum wage at that time was 57 cents an hour. None of these very low paying jobs in the South were Labor Unions. Ok so our government under Obama has to tax the chit out of them so be it, don't get mad get even, FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF romney.

The wealthy have the entitlement attitude. Give us everything you can and we will "TRICLE DOWN" to everyone. Kiss our exalted azzes and we just might let you have a minimum wage job. Well those days are gone atleast for the near future. Give us an 18 billion dollar no-bid contract and we will maybe see that half of it gets to it's intended target. Yes we are the exalted high and mighty rich,in our own eyes, and if you will turn America's resources over to us we will try and not Steal you blind.
