However, they own a large portion of our debt and it looks like they'd be doing just fine if we default... They are in a better long term situation than us, and we did it to ourselves.
Bush budget cuts education
Also, in my state... education is being cut.. It's also a state's issue, but I am sure you know that
I am kind of curious how socialist China is, and what the DP socialists think of China... It seems like they have been opening the economy up a little bit, so I am not sure where they stand.
Mississippi (how could you not have heard about this?): Governor, R
Colorado : Governor, D
Rochester, NY: Mayor, R
Pennsylvania: Governor, R
There's literally tons more, but I'd say that shoots your idea that Obama is making all the education cuts pretty null and void.
Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.
Those sorts of ties can become extremely complicated for the West that aligns itself against Iran.

Overall the largest companies(industrial and telecom) in China are generally either state owned or controlled. It does have a signifcant number companies that are privately owned and operated. Those companies are growing extremely fast and making massive improvements in Quality Control. BYD which is a large battery maker is moving into the auto busines and doing well at it. It has at least two large interent companies that are privately owned and doing quite well.

Ignorance is Bliss Bliss is the same as happiness US Christian conservatives are the happiest in the US according to studies Do you see a connection?

Incorrect. Ford and GM are perfectly competitive in both the American and global marketplace technologically. The bailout came from mismanagement, not technological failures.American cars don't even compete with European or Japanese IMO... and wouldn't have an auto industry if it weren't for the tax payers bailing most of them out. Imagine if that didn't happen..
