We live during a period of power transition in America: from wasps to jews, catholics, chinks, and other such human filth.

History will find this one of its most comedic chapters. The wasps are well armed, yet do nothing to throw off their chains. Perhaps the majority of humans really do not treasure liberty. Perhaps the chinks are right when it comes to government . . . as a true lover of liberty, my weak desires for freedom flounder upon the harsh rocks of reality . . .

I'm talking about the sub-prime debacle and now the prime debacle, just now showing up in the news, been hitting our shores for almost a year now.

China won't let their exchange rate normalize.  This is ENTIRELY their doing.

The response is to tariff them.  It's as simple as that.

Amazing how the people calling for market this, market that seem to imply that the western nations should sit by idly while China steals.

Just a point to Mr. The Comedian-avatar:  True lover's of liberty yearn for liberty in the universal sense, not just WASPs (it's supposed to be capitalized, Jr.).  Note how the words "human filth" never made it into the Declaration of Independence, The Road to Serfdom, or The Wealth of Nations.

You are entirely ignorant. You don't realize that we suffer from a major overpopulation crisis on this planet.

Until people stop consuming, until governments stop believing that GROWTH is the answer, I will view ALL of you human consumers as filth. Of course, this will never happen. Just think: most westerners drink water out of a PLASTIC, disposable bottle. Plastic is derived from oil, a rapidly depleting resource which is also used to lubricate the world economy. Fucking cancer cells.

Shove your bullshit "economic" books down your ass, faggot. We're bacteria in a petri dish, and you certainly don't understand that. I tire of seeing morons like you spout bullshit as if you know anything at all. Please shut the fuck up; what you say, think, or believe is irrelevant, insignifcant, and inane.

Again, stfu.

I'm so glad you're clued in to what I do and do not realize.  So you can add that to your superpowers of shooting your pregnant Asian paramour, raping one of your superteam members, and shooting your daughter to make her stronger...oh wait that was "Kickass."  My apologies.

My ability to comprehend those "bullshit economic books" puts me in a different league from you and the lesson that I take away from them, given by men wiser than me, allow me to perceive your ant-like myopia like a colossus.

Since you gave me a nice target, I will shoot it down but not expend too much effort because I have a life to getback to:  Those disposable PLASTIC bottles are made from PLASTIC, which does not biodegrade and is recycleable so that any PLASTIC bottles made may be recovered even in particulate form and remade into new PLASTIC bottles for people to drink SAFE water out OF.  Of course you may prefer to continue to drink out of a psilocybin cap and I wish you the best of luck with that.  I will close by quoting a great fat ass I know: "what you say, think, or believe is irrelevant, insignificant, and inane."

I'll try with your dumb ass again:

All modern economic systems assume infinite growth. We do not have infinite resources.

Does your tiny brain begin to see the problem yet, or are you going to continue in your Pavlovian rejection of the cold, hard truth? I would tell you to shut the fuck up, but I need to be constantly reminded just how worthless the majority of you humans truly are.

Some people think it's the 'whiteman's problem'.

we sold the growth idea and continue to beat its drum when it is obvious that infinite growth never was anything other than infinite debt. I say forgive the debt and let the bank's take the hit even though this means our bank acconts will be drained in the panic and we'll be in line waiting forever to see our 'money.

This is dangerous.

A trade war to China means millions of factory workers off the job and on the streets.

They fear unrest more than anything else. And this at a time when their banks are blowing up and their "economic miracle" may be about to pop.

Trade wars can turn into shooting wars. Just ask Imperial Japan.

Yawn. World War III was already won by GRC.

Germany gained de jour command of western Europe, including Britain and the Mediterranean. Russia reinherited its former soviet territories. China took control of all eastern asia and western pacific ocean (a Persian Caliphate, backed by GRC, conquers the Middle East, but remains a minor player due to the depletion of oil).

And thus, Eurasia was divided. America, though weakened, still nurses ambitions. It IS on the other side of the world, after all . . .

Though I have to mention one contingency (amongst many); it is very possible that Russia simply betrays Germany (it is unprofitable for those sneaky Cossack sluts to betray China due to the proximity of Moscow to Europe, you see) with Chinese assistance, and thus stabs Germany in the back to take control of all Europe.

Russian ambitions remain European, and China wants its northern neighbor distracted while it floods siberia with slant eyes. If this contingency plays out, 1984 will be realized.

Haha wait nevermind. People in 2011 line up and pay hand over fist for the telescreens. Thus is the nature of humanity.

Tolkien warned us about Germany in LOTR. Sadly, few cared to understand the real life teachings of his works.

But rise the peoples of middle earth shall against the tyranny of the dark lords of Mordor (Germany).

And when they do, the cities of europe will again be witness to the brutality of the 14th century.

When the mobs claim infinite justice, the german opressors and their french laphogs will find a bitter end.

"A trade war to China means millions of factory workers off the job and on the streets."

i beg to differ; waging a trade war against china, means we will create more factory jobs, hire more workers, and get manufacturing back in the states. american businesses need a level playfield to be competitive against foreign companies, it's time to secure and enforce our IP rights.
