    Different countries are economically dominant at different times, and it is not one of your silly American competitions, just an economic fact. At the moment it would probably be better to be nearly-dominated by China, because their fuhrer is not as mad as the American version, but the great thing is to have a lot of posturing bosses so that people can choose their 'allies' to suit their own interests. No good trying to score off the UK, by the way: it is suffering a national mental breakdown just now..

    I love you too. YOU really shouldn't call anyone misguided, until you remove the telephone pole from your left eye.

    Also, you aren't exactly the best person to be judging the intelligence of others. Just sayin'.

    If California decides to break away (as so many American conservatives hope it does)...the US economy will probably end up behind Japan, Germany, the UK, France and Italy also.

    Funny how both the Thais and Vietnamese can't stand them. They consider that they are rude, arrogant and obnoxious.

    They want to take Taiwan back and totally control the South China Sea. They already control much of Africa and are busily doing the same throughout South East Asia. At least Trump is taking them on, before it's too late.

    Funny. I feel the same about the English. I wonder what brings these things on!

    No I voted for Dr. Stein like a proper pinko commie would do. China diversifying its currency holding/income streams will bring stability to their economy, be a hedge against US trying to strap them down, and, quite frankly, their investments couldn't possibly come with worse terms than the world bank imposes on third world borrowers. Nice to see you exercising democratic bigotry though. "Slanty-eyed people BAD!!!!!!"
