Nope i don't think China owns the US.
Edit,, doesn't the US have $200 billion in gold bar's under fort Knox?
if it's true they should pay the debt with part of that unless it's a rainy day fund?
Billion in gold, 19.3 trillion in debt.. Meh..

Back in the 80s everyone said the same thing about Japan.
All the businesses moved there after China was allowed into the WTO and took advantage of essentially slave labor, dramatically reducing their cost of goods.
This is what globalism is all about, keep cheap labor in far off lands away from the eyes of the retail venue....meanwhile keep the retail consumers at each others throats via push button social issues.
Nope, China doesnt own the US.
