Bud you can think what you want I really do not mind.. As my nan liked to say you can take a horse to water. But you cannot make it
lol, I know what you mean, two intelligent people have a mild debate, that's the whole basis of these forums and we definitely act the part, so
congrats!, yea you sure can lead a horse to water but can't make it drink....THEN AGAIN you can add some apple juice or cider and VIOLA!! so go ahead
and take a big gulp of this grade A American water bud!!! because I'm going to bust out a tall glass of.......
I will however say this. Apathy has destroyed many good nations. If you keep thinking you are so good you will fall behind. China is
delivering.. Go and read the story of the hare and the tortoise having a race.
True that bud, it sure has, but I don't think I'm so good at all, its not my kind of mindset, I'm simply seeing it for what it is, actually now
that you bring it up, it seems china has that same posture with a lot of things, including there so called emerging markets, Apathy has destroyed many
good nations, after all...., China is delivering, America HAS delivered and will continue to do so as the worlds leading nation in innovation, I'm
mean, china leads the world in cheap knockoffs,
With over a 1/5 of the worlds population and an average higher IQ than the states I personally would not be so complacent..
Yea I challenge that and would like a link on those stats, not to mention with such a large population, don't be so naïve to think that its entire
population is currently applying its total brain output, AT THE SAME TIME, TO ACCOMPLISH A TASK, it just isn't so. Its hard NOT to be complacent,
every nation at the top of the food chain naturally reaches that point, IF AND WHEN china reaches that point, they do will suffer from the same
Have you ever been to China.. Parts of it are truly awesome. Its not the little backward country your news channels might like to convey it as.
Come to think of have you even left your own country...
No I have never been to china, your absolutely right though, pictures that I have seen are truly beautiful, I hardly watch the news on TV, trust me on
that, but I know better and give credit where credit is due, china can be beautiful, well in the country side, after you get past all the smog,
pollution, industrial powerplants....
Yes I have left my own country. I have been to Japan, Korea, both western and eastern seaboards of the continental US, including Alaska and Hawaii,
OH and I can't forget about mexico!! yes I am military and afforded the opportunity to travel to locations people save up their whole lives for.
and how the heck can you say China is standing on the shoulders on Giants.. Drop the ignorance and have some respect...Chinese roots can be
traced back between 8000-10,000 years! How far back can you trace your ancestory..
Where do you think the Industrial Revolution would be with the likes of gun powder and the printing press.. Both have been in China a long
It is what it is. you can deny ignorance but the respect is there. Yes I know china has been around for quite along time, they ONCE had a great empire
of the ancient world, too bad, too sad, all that has been was once was, is no more. I'm native American, so I can trace only so much of my ancestry,
but you can't blame these people for not being around as long as the Chinese, that would be ignorant!!....as a matter of fact, a lot about America's
true history before the founding of this continent is shrouded in mystery with new and emerging evidence that their could have been great empires on
this continent then previously known and possibly bigger than china with native Americas as a result what was left after a great cataclysm.
I wouldn't say china invented the printing press, they didn't, but more of less had developed a method of copying text from one medium to another,
it wasn't till a german dude came along and combined the method with ingenuity and came up with the first "Printing Press"
As for gun powder, well they did invent it, no argument there, the US as well as other nations benefit largely from that, the same could be said about
the internet, who developed the first networks for it? you already know the answer to that.
lol and you *Face palmed purplemer* pwned at the end of your post.. Bud you just lost the internet..
lol, very nice, but I can't loose the internet, maybe my network, but not my internet. *DoubleFacePalm to purplemer*
