Wikipedia ia hardly an academically acceptable source. At least check their sources.
The name calling detracts from your post and makes you look rather foolish.
It's not "name calling", it's just an observation of the facts.

Anyone who claims that Germany or China has a higher GDP than the US is seriously mentally deficient.

As for whether or not wiki is an academically acceptable source, I couldn't care less. I'm not trying to provide accurate _to the dollar_ data.

We out produce BOTH countries by a SIGNIFICANT margin. I don't care if it's exactly 3X what China produces or 2.85X or 3.05X. The point is they could DOUBLE their output and we'd still be in the lead.

These claims that China has "replaced us" and that we are behind both China and Germany (which for the record isn't even in third place, it's more like 5th) is just stupid.

I take it that you are claiming to be qualified (licensed) to evaluate others intellectual capacity? I don't believe "fucking retard" is a term found in the DSM-I'V.

It is one thing to refute a person's claim. It is another to attack that person. It is name calling. If you cannot understand that, then consider doing some fact checking.

If you made an inaccurate claim which was based on some erroneous understanding or odd political perspective, that would be one thing.

If you said, for example: "College education does not prepare you for the workplace." You would be wrong in regards to many kinds of jobs, right in regards to blue collar jobs, and debatable depending on which college, which jobs and what was taught.

However, we aren't talking about something that's debatable. We are talking about a poster which made a VERY CLEAR and VERY QUANTIFIABLE claim about the comparison between the economies of the US, China and Germany. They weren't just a little wrong. They were EXTREMELY wrong. CATASTROPHICALLY WRONG.

They made a claim that the US economy had been surpassed by both China and Germany. That used that claim to justify their claim that Obama had destroyed America and that we've been going downhill.

NONE of this is factually accurate. It's not even CLOSE to being DEBATABLE.

On TOP of that, they went so far as to claim that I hadn't checked the numbers implying that they had and had drawn their conclusions from the numbers.

In other words, they were insulting me first.

So, I stand by my diagnosis: FUCKING RETARDED.

And I'll throw in a second on: Above Average for a Conservative.

Are you even thinking through your statement? Seriously, this is some of the most amazing muddled thinking I've _EVER_ seen.

You are claiming that we used to give people shots when they headed to subtropical areas (true... THOSE ARE VACCINES! AND THEY WORK)

Then you are pointing out that Man Made Global Warming is expanding the range of those subtropical areas (also true... though not to the extent that the US with be subtropical except _maybe_ parts of Florida which don't end up underwater).

Then you conclude that we will have disease for which we can not vaccinate because well be exposed to the disease that people would get vaccinated for before traveling abroad.?!?!??!??

Your conclusion is the OPPOSITE of your starting premise.

It seemed to me that it was illegal immigration from Mexico that was the issue for that writer.

His claim was "immigrants cause disease" which is _exactly_ the claim that previous racists have made about the Italians, the Chinese, the Irish, the Jews, etc.

In fact, it's a claim which has been made of EVERY immigrant group to come to this country, though ironically, it was only the FIRST group that truly brought diseases.

His 2nd argument was that vaccines are required for going south of the border and therefore when the disease come up here they will stop working.

That "argument" fails to be internally consistent, not to mention it clearly goes against the facts.
