    Now the good news. China is wrong.--And for one major reason.It apparently disregards the decisive power of Americas nuclear-powered submarines.

    The USA will remain the only real world power for the foreseeable future.
    And one of the main reasons for that is its submarine fleet.

    China for its part has no interest in engaging the US militarily, should the US tend to its own affairs and troubles. But given our interfering history, there may be a wake up call. Bitch about the ND going up under Obama's watch, bitch when he tightens budgets, bitch, bitch, bitch.

    Oh, the horror! We'll just have to start spending on something else, anything, to keep that deficit up!

    I noticed the defense spending didn't go down a bit when Obama and Co. took over. So I guess both parties are "crazy" and you are the last rational person in the country, is that it?
    please, let's all learn from your wisdom.

    China obviously thinks this way because of the doofus the United States elected as commander-in-chief. I can't say I blame them for their thoughts.
    Liberalism—dividing up the EARNED wealth of honest, hard working and ingenious AMERICANS and giving it to the leeches who would rather waste their worthless lives living off the government teat.

    Gather round, my children, and bask in the light of my wisdom.
    Neither the Republicans nor the Democrats are really in favor of fiscal conservatism. The great sage (me, of course) hath spoken the truth, and the truth is that Republicans only make mouth noises about over spending, while Democrats don't even do that.

    Now, who amongst my flock doeth not see that making mouth noises only produces vibrations that falleth on eardrums, but do nothing to keep the mighty dollars from fleeing in panic from the coffers of our Uncle Sam?

    Now go, oh followers of mighty wisdom, and remember that you cannot take at face value things said by the politicians, as they speak with forked tongues much of the time.

    so by your theory 50%(R) of the government is run by liars and the other 50%(D) is run...by liars.
    So every person collectively elected by the citizens are all liars, but YOU are the one truth teller?
    hmmmm, let me think about that a while. Then I'll tell you who I think the crazy person is.
