China's gov carefully crafted & implemented a Stimulus Plan for 100's of Billion$ less then the US.

Obama & Demoscat Congress foolishly threw together & shoved out the door a Spending Plan, routed through more State Govs, for 100's of Billion$ more than China.

Any wonder why China's worked & Obama's didn't?

Did I mention we borrowed money from China to do it and continue doing so this very day.

Come on! China artificially values the Yuan rather than let it float. The cost of labor there is chicken feed, so comparing their stimulus plan with that of the USA is apples and oranges. China has more people living on $3.00 a day than the entire population of the USA.

Having said that, we need to stop borrowing and start reducing the debt, and it is going to hurt. China doesn't come close to matching the quality of life in the USA and will not for some decades. Look at Hong Kong and Taiwan for a closer comparison.

Just like they're doing in Sudan and Zimbabwe?! China, just like other world powers, including the US, is self-serving and only concerned about its own national interests.

Why can't Germany do something? After all, Israel is the big issue. The USA set up reservations for native Americans after we killed too many of them. Hey, Germany could set aside a nice city, like Frankfurt or Dresden, and give it to the Jews and close Israel. Dang, what a great idea!

You can sit on your German butt and do nothing, yet make wishes for a better future with China, Russia, and India, three countries which cannot even feed their own populations? Some super race you are! I've got it: adopt several Indian babies before they starve to death (6000 a day do), raise them as Germans and when they are adults they can sit on their German asses and wish for a better future!

American labor costs include the cost of paying Social Security, the cost of Workmen's Comp, the cost of OSHA regulations enforcement and compliance, the costs of affirmative action, the cost of US taxes, and the costs of retirement and health care. China has none of these costs.

And how is a country like China who does organ harvesting, one child policy forced abortions and who pollutes the earth going to make the world a better place?

In case you did not know India and China are enemies. As for Russia well Russia is not even a serious player like China or USA.

Not all of them. But you are right. In China there is a huge gap between rich and poor.

So what this means is that to solve multiple global problems, China & India should go to war with each other and reduce the world's head count by a half billion or so.

I am rady to apologise for rude words, although I continue to think that you are totally biased against Russians and wrong about events of 1995-1991 in Russia and East Europe......You mentioned in one of your posts yesterday that you are disabled of wounds which you got serving United States...Please, tell me, which countries did you take part in combat. Thanks in advance.

If China rise up, then this world will become more peaceful and safe. US will no longer be able to control and make trouble to everyone as they always want to. Also because of that, a lot of people here are very anxious and angry with China.
