Stupidity is a crime... and this man should not pass go.

I was reading an article referenced by Lew Rockwell on China's diminishing taste for the dollar and it's implications to world trade. Decent article, little light on effect, but it's just a quick editorial. They didn't go deep, but they didn't really get anything wrong, either.

Then I read some of the comments. Some, on all sides of the issue, were quite good. Then there was this idiot:

"

I'd like to see China or anyone come and try to claim debt from the USA. We still have the big red button biaaaatches!!

and they don't!!!"


Let's just pick this apart.


First, China doesn't have to call in their markers. In fact, they are unlikely to do so as it would adversely affect THEIR currency faster than they are likely to be able to deal with. All they have to do to put an end to the dollar as the world's reserve currency is STOP BUYING THE GUARANTEES that the FED likes to sell to them. A refusal to take on more American debt is non aggressive and indefeatable.


Then the last part. The willingness to initiate a nuclear war over a disagreement on DEBT. This moron would kill BILLIONS over a trade dispute. Never mind the wrong idea that China doesn't have nukes (they do, they can reach us, they are probably targeted on us), but just look at that mindset. If the United States gets called on it's default, this moron wants to shoot at the DEBTHOLDER.


See how well that one flies next time you're late on a loan payment. Yeesh.

There are moments when I'm ashamed of being born American. This is one of them.

This reminds me of my personal experiences with loaning money to my friends. It's probably the reason why I have so few friends today.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Having problems with spam as of late or is it simply inappropriate content?

In case anybody is wondering, I'm not censoring anybody with these deleted posts. Some spammer hit me, and there were about a zillion links to some horseshit that I didn't want to be associated with.
