China Puts US on eBay


www.pakistantoday.com.pk

China puts US on eBay – ‘Government sold separately’,” sales listing says. “Showing its impatience with the debt ceiling stalemate in Washington, China today took the extraordinary step of putting the United States of America on eBay,” jokes comedian and satirist Andy Borowitz.

“Officials at the online auction site said they believed it was the first time a major Western nation had been listed for sale there ‘if you don’t count Greece’.

China putting US on eBay? Now that is wild and kinda getting scary folks. Thought I should bring this to your attention.

I honestly don't know what to say about this. It doesn't surprise me though because we owe them out the @$$. Afraid of how they will actually trY to collect this. No telling what we'll be facing in the near future. This eBay doesn't surprise me one bit. It's all sad... veRY sad.

God have mercy on this nation and the folk in it.

Employ another, larger stimulus package to create jobs and expand growth.

This is the only way.

It would be honest to say the capitol is infested with dirty rats that purchaser is responsible for getting rid of.

What is sad is that you read a satirical piece and believe it.

LOL pretty funny!

Almost as funny as the OP thinking it was real!


I sure hope you didn't tell anybody about this in real life,did you? "Hey bob, did you know China put the US up for sale on eBay?" *Blank stare*

Don't worry about China. They don't own anywhere near the majority of US debt. As long as we pay the interest on this debt, they can't do anything.

Think of it like this. Say you owe your credit card company $1000, and your minimum monthly payments are $20. As long as you keep paying them $20 a month, they can't send you to collections or anything, can they? No. Just like China can't do anything as long as we keep paying them, which we will. We can always print more money. Not saying that's a good thing, but it's true, and we WILL do that over defaulting on China.
