They should have given it to Obama again; after all one good fraud deserves another; or perhaps Al Gore, his Gorebal Warming fortune is slipping.

Vote with your dollars. There is nothing that China makes that you can't live without. Every dollar spent in China kills jobs in countries that pay decent wages to people who can afford to participate in the world economy. Chinese workers are economic slaves that are being milked like cows at the expense of your jobs. It is time for "free trade" to have higher minimum standards.

And you "know" this how? An ancient Chinese sage said "In conflict, if you know your opponent and yourself, your chances are high. If one, 50-50, If neither, low" Sun Tzu. What do you reckon your chances?

Well, it was good for us internally,'cause it forced us to make the changes we needed to make, against, I must admit, some grumbling resistance, which has melted away in face of it's great success in positive reform. The question that might be asked, is why is the US in it?

Don't say that, China has stood for 5,000 years and will stand for another 5,000 years. If you don't like China, you can always go back home.

'us'?

You said you were not Chinese, now you are?

Note: Chinese will not see a foreigner as 'Chinese', ever. They don't even see Dashan or Bethune as Chinese, are you better than them?

How many races, nationalities, ethnic groups compose China, do you suppose? How many languages, religions, cultures? Have you ever seen Chinese money? How many languages, and scripts, are there on it? In fact, what do you know about China, really? Or you just pretending to be ignorant to make a point?

Thank You !!! I'm not even left of old what's his name. People buying prodcts from China tends to prove most people like the rewards of slave labor. That is as long as it's not in their back yard, and they come out ahead because of it.

What are you talking about? All the new bank notes are in Chinese, English, and Pinyin. If you are talking about the old bank notes, then you are behind the times. It's 2010 now, not 1984. Though you should watch the movie sometime.

The average wage in China for a factory worker in approximately $75 a month.

Chinese workers work in such horrible conditions that many choose suicide over a life of virtual slavery.

A job lost here that is replaced with one where the worker does not make enough money to contribute to the "world economy" hurts the economy.

Chinese factories pour pollution into the world's oceans and skies at a rate that exceeds that of any other nation.

More products from China are recalled than those from any other country due to safety and toxicity problems.

I know enough about China but they aren't my opponent because I choose to not have anything to do with them.

China products choke, burn,
drown, drop, trap Americans
Washington's consumer safety recalls
overwhelmingly hit imports from East

By Joseph Fara Worldnet daily

WASHINGTON It's not just Chinese food and drug imports that can kill you.
Many of those bargain-priced products you pick up at Wal-Mart, Target or Sam's Club could do you in, too.

Imports from China were recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission twice as often as products made everywhere else in the world, including the U.S., a WND study of government 2007 reports shows.
