He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    My wife is Chinese. Our sons are Eurasians. My daughter in law is Viet/Chinese. I like the Chinese.

    I don't like the American left. Neither does anyone else in my family.

    Don't confuse the Chinese people with the Chinese government.

    Well, as long as we're making absurd claims, the Chinese could serve you tea and cupcakes and you'd shoot them for being communists.

    The Chinese Govt. is the tool of the Party. I have no trouble distinguishing between the people and the Party.

    Leftism is like a dangerous virus. No half measures can be used in exterminating it. Better safe than sorry.

    So does this mean that China will forgive all our debt that they own? Sweet.

    There was an experiment done a while back. It was a sort of nation-simulation game. The players took the role of governance over the various world nations. Before the experiment, people were given a personality test. Those who scored high on the right-wing-authoritarian scale were put in one group, those who scored low in another.

    The "liberal" group had some troubles. Millions of people in Africa ended up starving to death. However, eventually things worked out in a peaceful fashion and the world became a mostly stable place with little conflict and a reasonable distribution of resources.

    The high-RWA group started a global thermonuclear war.

    Well the European average is perhaps a bit less given historical differences within the various countries. However, there are countries within Europe with far exceeding debt than that of the United States. Still, that being said I think that China should forgive all the US debt which it owes.
