dont tell me my countrys economy is in trouble as i already know,
take a good look at south africa before critisizing my country??
especially when adjustments are in place to bring america into a new age of economic prosperity which you choose to ignore.
I for one am not going to do your research for you as I already have,
I live in this country I pay taxes and invest and thrive in this country something you do not,
hell you havent even been here despite your OPINION about it which really lacks substance.
have you ever been to america? have you even lived here? you can come to the conclusions you want from what you gather on google
or wherever you choose to cherry pick your sources but it does not change the fact you have no clue what you're talking about
you have zero experience and only gtaher what suits your own biased opinion.
for every insulting CLAIM on prison planet there is something to counter it with actual fact.
posting crap from 2002 that has no base or has already been debunked really is irrelevant especially
rom some biased ignorant soviet doctor.
the fact you immediatly called me ignorant because I challenged your position
tells me you dont have the mental fortitude to even engage
in an intellectual debate
without having to attack and insult people as u so constantly display,
googling up bias sources
and taking someone elses paragraphs and rewriting them without doing proper research and taking it as gospel is the epitomy of ignorance.
what in the hell gives u so much experience from south africa?
dont insult me or my country from your little corner of the earth on that devestated continent unless
you got something intellectual to post that has substance instead of biased opinion,
especially prison planet. you basically call me and every other american an ignorant piece of garbage when you think we would just roll over and get conquered by our government, keep dreaming buddy.
i dont know how things are ran in south africa but in america we are not dominated and tossed around by our government,
here in america it's a wonderfull place to live and if you think otherwise then you have no experience in my country and just completly misinformed, sure my country has some flaws, those flaws can be fixed by the american people.
and if you want to attempt to engage in debate with me then you will be wasting your time,
im talking to someone who does not live and see the domestic situation in my country and who relys on bias internet sources
so I would not expect you to be accurate at all as you have displayed here and on a few other threads. saying europe is a better place to live?? take a good look at france and germany then come again.
if you dont mind me asking what ethnicity are you? me im italian and english, I understand south africa has been subject to western interests and rape so im starting to see where the bias comes from.
could this also be another reason for the anger?
i suggest putting your energy into solving the current domestic issues your country faces rather then exaughsting all of your hatred on my country,
focus it towards the better instead of the reverse, I dont think it was americans who settled there all those centuries ago and caused massive genocide on that continent and continued voilenceuch a large crime rate for a small country.
it must be nice living in cape town.

This was about China. If you want to know....China will never take over the World. They will come close, though. I have sat with Ralph Cline and other Government people from China and Canada. I have had private meetings with Chinese Officials.
The greed, which is running rampant in the USA, will be what causes their Dollar to loose value. When the world looses faith in the USD, they will sell off in such large volumes that it will bankrupt the Country.
I am a US National, living in Canada. This is a warning to people. There is nothing that can be done to change what has already started.
My only hope for us is that something new will come allong. The world will not end, just the way things are run will be done differently.
Russian technology that took apart the German army with American and British technology barely making progress on their small stretch of the European front lines?

You are posting opinions -
I have yet to see a credible source that backs up your claim.
Hell - not even the EU nor China itself are on par with what you say.

THe bottom the US can be self reliant. It doesn't need China. Imagine if China didn't exist, the coporations would return to the US, thus, creating more jobs and a better economy.
Regarding the oil issue, there are technologies to eliminate the use for dependency. The only reason why we are still consuming oil is because the greedy ass coporations. Ever heard of free energy. You can convert h2o into hho gas, but the coporations don't profit from free energy.
Plus most countries have a lot of money invest in the US. Why would they want to set themselves up by dropping the dollar. I can understand for China to drop it because they don't have much money invest in the US,
Most of the infastructure and commerical real estate in the US are owned by foreign countries.
T Not to mention all the money the goverment is illigally profiting around the globe, such as drug traficating. It is estimated the the CIA brings in about 500 billion dollars yearly from drug traficating that's more than oil profits around the globe.

Oh, and stellar, don't mind ape.
To ape, anyone who opposes Fairtax is automatically an Anti-American, pro-outsourcing, globalist who has no job and lives with his parents.
I have no idea how he draws those conclusions...
He also believes there are NO negatives, backdraws with Fairtax. He is so convinced that Fairtax is the key to solving EVERY American problem, that he wont' even take a look at ANY of the criticism. It's an awesome way to deny ignorance.
OH, and Ape, when you say that we Americans have full control of our destiny, you are full of it. 59% of Americans want to PULL OUT OF IRAQ, however, the house voted 403 - 3 to stay in Iraq. We have control? Rofl... save the talk for an idiot.
Or.. the corporations would go to a different country... like India?
the house voted 403 - 3 to stay in Iraq. We have control?
