    What?
    The people and businessmen of China have no real strength or ability to affect the Chinese government. That entity will allow them to play around at a semblance of a free market for as long as it benefits the government. When it comes time to tackle the US, the economic disruption and deaths will be considered acceptable, a cost of doing business.

    There is only one thing that will keep this from happening. If we maintain a military and technological superiority such that they don't think they can pull if off, then they will wait. If they ever get to the point that they think they can get around or defeat our technology, they will.

    so you're conceding NEVADA, now, too?

    and fio, who's that better candidate than fio you're referencing?

    2010 Will be seen as the year that Republicans pulled defeat out of the jaws of victory.
    an historic pick up of EIGHT SEATS upstairs and goodness know how many on pelosi's temporary carpet is defeat from jaws?

    don't let the big stuff obscure your microscopic view

    2012 will be the year of the Republican takeover of both houses of Congress
    can you tell us the margins?

    The term "Social Conservative" is an oxymoron.
    nonsense

    Mike Castle was a winner
    LOL!

    sure, that's why he lost to a whack job from nowhere, 47 to 53, in a red primary in blue hen country that saw gop turnout increase 400% over the last offyear primary

    now, on the flip side of the coin, never forget, there's mr coons, who once indicated he "was distrustful of american power and willing to question the american notion of free enterprise," who came to see "that the ideal of america as a beacon of freedom and justice, providing hope for the world was not exactly based in reality,” who discovered "that [his] own favorite beliefs in the miracles of free enterprise and the boundless opportunities to be had in america were largely untrue”

    Coons took 'bearded Marxist' turn - Alex Isenstadt - POLITICO.com

    remember, all that conventional thinking (LOL!) that had mr castle a sure butt in biden's bench is the same that saw the 71 year old ultimate insider (who met with obama and biden the day after he lost) wasting the witch

    bottom line---for opposition, coming close is good enough

    seeya at the polls, rhinos

    Go get fluent in Chinese and maybe we'll plumb the depths of your ignorance on the subject. Until then I will not waste my energy debating what Chinese think with someone whose sum total of knowledge in the area is whatever was written on the slip of paper inside his fortune cookie when he last got carry-out shrimp fried rice.

    "LOL" indeed. That would be me sitting here listening to the American ghosts waxing eloquent on something they don't know **** about.

    I read in this book by Matt Taibi(The Great Derangement, great read for poli sci-junkies BTW) that some people can only propel their rhetoric by creating entire myths. Usually this rhetoric fails horribly as the only people who listen to you are people as wacked out as the preachers. But on very rare occasions you get a 'mainstream' political figure advocating a conspiracy that is out there but yet manages to enamor supporters of all stripes.

    Seriously, it takes a person who has no understanding of politics to say that the Chinese want to invade us. Even though the economic consequences of war would actually benefit the U.S. - put it this way, if the Chinese ever decide to bomb us, we'll no longer give much of a **** about the ridiculous debt we have with them.

    The elections are coming so I know for a fact every white person that gets elected will have somehow benefited from Obama's affirmative action.

    I don't think that it is a stretch of the imagination to say that China already exercises an unhealthy level of economic power over the U.S. thanks to our spending addiction.

    Really? Not THE Matt Taibbi? .... You mean this Matt Taibbi?

    In March 2005, Taibbi wrote a column for New York Press, entitled "The 52 Funniest Things About the Upcoming Death of the Pope".[13] The column was denounced by Senator Hillary Clinton, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Matt Drudge, and Abe Foxman, among others, including Congressman Anthony Weiner who suggested that New Yorkers throw copies of that issue of the magazine in the trash. The editor who approved the column was suspended, and resigned.[14] In a subsequent column entitled "Keep Pope Alive", Taibbi defended the controversial piece as "an off-the-cuff burlesque of Truly Tasteless Jokes," which he said was designed to give readers a break from a long run of "fulminating political essays" in his column space. In a written response, Taibbi said " 'The 52 Funniest Things About the Upcoming Death of the Pope' " had almost nothing to do with the pope or Catholics whatsoever, and certainly wasn't hate speech. If there was hate in the piece, it was not for the pope but for the agonizing marathon of mechanized media grief and adulation we so inevitably go through after the passing of each and every hallowed leader or celebrity." In the same response he expressed surprise at the strong response for a piece that he had "written in the waning hours of a Vicodin haze."[15]

    In a 2010 Vanity Fair article chronicling the demise of the eXile, journalist James Verini alleges that Taibbi cursed at him and threw a coffee in his face after being told The Exile: Sex, Drugs, and Libel in the New Russia was "redundant and discursive." Verini maintains that the incident took place in a crowded Manhattan restaurant during lunchtime and that after storming out Taibbi further accosted him on the street.[16]

    And liberals love to say that conservatives live in an echo chamber of their own ideas......

    I'm really losing all faith in our government at all. If bat**** insane idiots like her can actually get elected, there is something seriously wrong here.
