I agree, but some cannot be taught how to express their views without degrading the other's integrity. I only do so when the proposition of such has been directed at me first, and only to defend myself against such ignorance.

I do not know the answer to that question. The only people who know that answer are our military leaders, our defense agency, the leader of afgahnistan, and the president. If i was to speculate, i would say that it is because we want to secure the prosperity and safety of the afgahn people by training them and helping them achieve that goal. Along with making sure that our troops are downsized in a responsible manor that does not put them in any greater danger and allows them to execute their orders in a reasonable time. We do not have a date we just have a year for the end and that could change given the circumstances in afgahnistan. It could be shorter it could be longer, but hopefully shorter. It could also be the 1st of January that we come home which would be less than a year away then again it could be the end of 2014 which would be closer to 2 years away. At any rate the war will end and those soldiers, like my brother, know that they have a job to do and are proud to do it. We should be happy that the war is comming to a reasonably clear end and not disgracing the office or degrading individuals for not moving fast enough to do so when others had no clear end in sight.

CHINA POISED TO PLAY DEBT CARD – FOR U.S. LAND
Posted on January 21, 2013

This Is The Second Article On Obama’s Plan To Welcome His Communist Brothers Into America – I Have Witnessed This First Hand Here In Europe – The People Were Asleep And Protest After The Fact, But Too Late – When Will You Wake Up America?

Communist Nation Could Control American Land As ‘Development Zones’

Could real estate on American soil owned by China be set up as “development zones” in which the communist nation could establish Chinese-owned businesses and bring in its citizens to the U.S. to work?

That’s part of an evolving proposal Beijing has been developing quietly since 2009 to convert more than $1 trillion of U.S debt it owns into equity.

Under the plan, China would own U.S. businesses, U.S. infrastructure and U.S. high-value land, all with a U.S. government guarantee against loss.

Yu Qiao, a professor of economics in the School of Public Policy and Management at Tsighua University in Beijing, proposed in 2009 a plan for the U.S. government to guarantee foreign investments in the United States. The Obama administration, under the plan, would grant a financial guarantee as an inducement for China to convert U.S. debt into Chinese direct equity investment. China would take ownership of successful U.S. corporations, potentially profitable infrastructure projects and high-value U.S. real estate.

The plan would be designed to induce China to resume lending to the U.S. on a nearly zero-interest basis.

However, converting Chinese debt to equity investments in the United States could easily add another $1 trillion to outstanding Obama administration guarantees issued in the current economic crisis.

As of November 2012, China owned $1.17 trillion in U.S. Treasury securities, according to U.S. Department of Treasury and Federal Reserve Board calculations published Jan. 16.

Concerned about the unrestrained growth in U.S. debt under the Obama administration, China has reduced by 97 percent its holdings in short-term U.S. Treasury bills. China’s holding of $573.7 billion in August 2008, prior to the massive bank bailouts and stimulus programs triggered by the collapse in the U.S. mortgage market, dwindled to $5.96 billion by March 2011.

This whole article is nothing but speculation on one persons attempt to try and persuade individuals into believing what they think by using fear mongoring tactics and conspiracies to try and make obama look like a socialist facist communist dictator. There is no facts supporting any of the information that china is going to come over here and take our land and our freedom. China will not control any piece of this country and crazied simple minded fear mongoring conspiriacies will not help the cause. There will always be people out there that always look for the negative and look for conspiracies that offer grief to our country. There will also always be ignorance and this crazed conspiracy article is simple proof of such.

This President is a KILLING MACHINE!
Reasonably clear is better than having no end at all. and i did not ever say i did not know when it will end i said it will end in 2014 presumably. I am getting tired of you calling the president a murderer when it was under BUSH that we went to war. Obama has did nothing but end wars. Quit a whining crybaby over such subjects, it is not only immature but makes you sound like a 5 year old who does not get their way. There is no help for people like you and people who think the way you do. Timothy Mcveigh was a prime example of what you are saying and you reflect his views enirely. Those types of crazy views have no place in this country and will end the same way the life of your idol did.

Hey whoever you are, I will be glad when you quit acting childish and grow up. I will be glad when you talk like an adult and have a conversation instead of just fear mongoring and degrading the integrity of indviduals to make you feel better about your views and life. We do need higher taxes we need to reinstate all the tax codes of the 90's not just those of incomes 400k or more. They will not pass a national sales tax because there are several states that do not incoroprate the use of sales tax so i do not know where you get your information but you are poorly missguided. Do not tell me to gripe because i am not. You are the one griping and complaining. You are the one that is calling our president a dictator and a communist. You are the one that is too selfish with their money and blinded by greed to pay a little more for your tax bracket. You would rather have all the money you can to help further your needs and your families needs without the thought to the cost of our country and financial strain our economy has been under sense these tax breaks were first imposed under Bush. You want to cut taxes and entitlements to people with no increase in revenue. Any person could see that that equation does not work. The revenue in this country is taken in under the use of taxes. Savings can be gained from cutting Medicare and other entitlements to be more cost efficient and effective, but additional money must be made through the use of taxes because we CANNOT cut our way to prosperity. I will never be ultimatley upset with the decisions of our president and government but i will express my opposing views if i have any. I would love to cut taxes the way republicans say and cut entitlements, but i also know that both of those cannot be done without hurting the country, the economy, you, me, and the world. Compromise is something that our country runs on and is something that a few have lost sight of in congress and by the way you talk it also seems that compromise has also left some of the general populous.

China will one day call in their loan and if they take us over you can blame you best friend obama, he did nothing to stop it. He was to busy spending all that money he borrowed from china to notice what they had planned. So you just keep telling yourself that he's the grestest thing on the plant. Cause he's fixing to prove you that you are wrong.
lol what? Go ahead and let china call on their debt to be paid. They will get paid when we are ready and able to pay them and they know that. If you implying that China would start a war with us to get around 1.1 T dollars then you are crazy. If you want that sort of thing then tell your family and friends because noone on here wants another war and is not in favor of such things. If you want china to do something to make obama look bad simply goes to show you that you are not interested in furthing the development of the country but are more focused on hindering the job a president who has done an exceptional job. Quit focusing on what you THINK the president is doing wrong and focus more on what YOU can do for your country, wheather that means biting the bullet on certain legilation or helping your community, but using fear mongoring tactics and thoughtless comments to express a minority view among constituants is not helping anyone and making the party involved look more ignorant than they have already proved theirself to be.

I totally agree with your statement. That would have a positive affect on our economy. That's not the whole story though. It would be only a short term solution for a long term problem. We need other sources of energy. If we wanna stay off foreign oil. Once we run out we are out.

The United States will overtake Saudi Arabia to become the world's biggest oil producer before 2020, and will be energy independent 10 years later, according to a new forecast by the International Energy Agency.

Wht makes you think they don't


The U.S. exported more gasoline, diesel and other fuels than it imported in 2011 for the first time since 1949, the Energy Department said.

(Source: Bloomberg)

Shipments abroad of petroleum products exceeded imports by 439,000 barrels a day, the department said today in the Petroleum Supply Monthly report. In 2010, daily net imports averaged 269,000 barrels. U.S. refiners exported record amounts of gasoline, heating oil and diesel to meet higher global fuel demand while U.S. fuel consumption sank

You should do a little research before you start throwing ou these Republican talking points.

Despite the one-year drop in production, oil production on federal and Indian lands from 2009 through 2011 totaled 2.027 million barrels. That's an average of 675,000 barrels per year during Obama's term, compared to an average annual production of 609,000 barrels annually during Bush's last term.

But it is an overstatement to say that "all of the increase" has been on private lands -- since, by definition, new permits and licenses have been granted for federal lands (bringing in more gas and oil).
Romney's claim that Obama's administration has "cut the number of permits and licenses in half" for federal lands is also not on the mark
