mr. sweetheart, the chinese took the jobs no one want to do in the states. do you want to make linen towels or christmas toys? the chinese have been keeping the u.s and the rest of the world's inflation low. now the chinese started to outsource those dead end jobs to vietcongs, pinoys, indons, indians etc. the next 30 years, chinese would truly compete head on with the west. good luck for the next 30 years, some of the products may smell like napalm, banana or curry.
The Chinese work their ways by handwork with determination not invading or raping other nations as some do even today. Just look at Hong Kong and Singapore, there are nothing there except a small parcel of land and large population per square meter. Yet these territories are the most productive and rich all due to the hard working population who are there to improve their lives for a better future .

Half of Chinese products are fake and/or poisoned. That's why they're number one.
The USA's idea of trade is to buy something from China for a dollar, mark the retail price up to $50 and claim $49 dollars for GDP and then brag how superior they are to China having had to run the printing presses all night to print off dollars to pay their debts to China.

Precisely.

And China's history goes in roughly 300 years cycles--100 years rise, 100 years at top, 100 years decline. Right now, we're in the 100 years rise cycle.

In terams of PPP China eclipsed the USA in total trades 12 yrs ago and in terms of the dollar one yr ago. China is doing great but the USA will be even greater, we are getting our troops back, Obama just said 34,000 of our troops are coming back from Afghanistan. Look out the USA is on the move.

I agree. History will record it was Obama who was President for the 8 years Before the USA slipped to second place.
Democrats think that by raising taxes and adding more regulation will encourage people to invest in the USA.
And preaching hatred and disdain may be a great way for Democrats to stay in power but is it really good for the country?

That is complete BS. We buy from China as other countries do. Greedy unions and greedy management plus government regulations have made US products over priced worldwide. Add a tariff for US products going into other countries and that's what you get.
Its not rocket science bonehead.
Typical republican responce, cover up for the wealthy corporations who use China as a front to deprive Americans of jobs. Labor unions have been going downhill for several years and paying 7.25 minumum wage for corporate greedy bas-ards is'nt good enough. Pay 1.00 per hour to China workers and then bring these cheap products into the USA without paying tariff tax. Would you work for 1.00 dollar per hour? this is the situation, you want your fellow American to work minimum wage and stay poor all his life. Thank God for Obama the best man to finally come along and HUMBLE damn republicans.

this is the main problem, s

You have stated that you cannot hate bush and love Obama. I say you cannot hate Obama love bush! Your only answer to the trouble America is going thru is to put another republican in the Whitehouse and then sit back in comfort and ease and never critisize him or her. We did this for 8 painful years under The Worst President Ever bush and that type of behavior got us into the shape we are now in. Although I will say Obama has'nt done nearly enough to correct the evil created by bush. You probably think that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and that bush did'nt lie to us. WRONG! Now you republicans will pay a very high price by not stopping your leader from wreaking my country and will never condemn this criminal act.

One year later the Bush administration admitted that they got wrong intelligence about Saddam Hussein's connection with Al-queda, and possession of massive destructive weapons.

I remember that CNN ran headlines round the clock about Hussein right before the invasion of Iraq.

How well is Obama doing on the economic front, well in real terms the USA is 137 on the list of economic growth, not only behind China, but behind Russia Mexico and even North Korea of all places.

And as far as workers in the USA going to make $1 an hour wages have DROPPED 8.2% under Obama, so Obama getting us fast to that magic $1 an hour mark.

Obama is not just humbling the Republicans he humbling the whole country.
Those are the real facts.
