Will China take nation?

  • Follow Letters

A Missouri state senate candidate recently said, “We are going to be gifted with a health-care plan that we are forced to purchase and be fined if we don’t, signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, by a government that has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that’s broke.”

If Barack Obama is re-elected, every American should obtain the Chinese version of Rosetta Stone language-learning software. When you fail to pay your mortgage, the bank takes your home. When America fails to pay its mortgage to China, China will take our country. We won’t have paid our “fair share” – the handover will be legal, and Americans will have signed the promissory note.

Don’t let Obama and the Democrats mortgage America to the Chinese. Union riots and protests are already occurring here and, as the federal government goes bankrupt, millions more will take to the streets to protest in every American city. Then, as the Chinese military arrives to take what will be their property, calm will be restored, and those who used to be Americans will visit Obama’s presidential library and remember.

I don't think so Kieth

If the Chinese decide they want America I'm sure we'd send over some thermonukes to deter them from taking that action.
If Iran decides to build a nuclear bomb we'll never have to worry about them again. We have already told Iran they will never have a nuclear weapon and I'm pretty sure we said if you decide to build one then you can kiss your country goodbye because it is about to cease to exist.

Everyday I thank all that is

Everyday I thank all that is that I don't wake up to a world seen through paranoid and fearful eyes. If I could grant serenity to those who have wrapped themselves around such a core of apocalyptic distrust and unrelenting pessimism, I would do it in a heartbeat.

The Pimsleur program would be better.

Seriously, you don't really think all of that would happen in 4 years, do you? Even assuming that's the administration's agenda. Did you expect the same from Clinton's second term?

Keith doesn't do much research

You can blame the greedy corporations for sending our jobs to China. Since we've been spending about half of the entire worlds' military expenditures for decades, we have exponentially the military capability of China, or the entire world combined. As to the debt, China owns a little over 8%. Over 75% is owned by US citizens. Nice try Keith, but please try to be accurate when you send a LTE.

Social Security and Medicare
Unpublished

Social Security and Medicare are not bankrupt. According to today's fact checking on the debate, "It's true that China is the largest foreign holder of U.S. debt, but it only represents about an 8 percent stake. And China has recently been decreasing its holdings, according to the Treasury Department." Someone listens to too much right-wing radio...

Want Egg Roll With That?

Hey Keith, it's not often one can get the right and the left to agree, but I have to give kudo's where they're due.

I guess paranoia and too much Limbaugh, Savage, Hannity et al can unite this nation.

this is what you get

yep, letters like this are what you get when the fear mongering fringe right's message inculcates the masses. a message of defeat by the hands of those who's only wish is 'destroying all that is good'.

"You can blame the greedy

"You can blame the greedy corporations for sending our jobs to China."

Wrong! You can blame the government that makes it financially better to send jobs to china.

You can also blame Obama who sent his "green jobs" to China.

China will not have to take
Unpublished

China will not have to take the country if Obama and the libs get their way, it will just be handed to them. Obama has been trying to bring this country down since he took office with some success. At least I had the pleasure of watching Romney expose him for the inept person he is last night. Romney took that fool to school, several times.

the GREEDY UNIONS for corporations sending work overseas. What union strikes have we heard of in China for better pay? Why are ILLEGAL ALIENS coming to America in droves? They are paid 10 times what they would make for doing the same work in Honduras, Mexico and Belize for American corporations. obama's backers are the unions, gubmint workers and welfare recipients ( which by the way comes to around 47%). Just look at the cost to make a Chevy in a union-friendly state compared to a Hyundai made in a right-to-work state. There are reasons that Chevrolets, Chryslers and Fords are made in Canada and Mexico.

Every time a liberal refers

Every time a liberal refers to someone as greedy, I have to ask the question: Why is it greedy to want to keep the money you earned, but not greedy to want to take that money away from them?

Best results from Penton Overseas "Learn In Your Car Mandarin."

Hey everybody, I know I'm not supposed to mention him, but didn't George W. Bush use money borrowed from China, among others, to finance a war that the Grateful People of Iraq were supposed to pay us back for with their oil... but didn't?

It'd be easy to check... I'll bet Cheney saved the receipts.

"the Grateful People of Iraq were supposed to pay us back for with their oil"

That was never part of the deal.....unless you believe the lie that we only went to war for oil.

One thing is for certain...

One thing is for certain, and I'm sure everyone will agree; our freedoms are being eroded away each and every day. All those, throughout our history, who have given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom are probably rolling in their graves while they watch us do nothing but argue and allow it to happen.

Not quite

Regarding Iran and nuclear weapons, shrimp for breakfast posted:

No, President Obama said we would issue sterner warnings and tougher sanctions.

Angie..

I beg to differ... if you don't think all that OIL played into the decision to INVADE Iraq, I'd love to show you some FL swampland my bother is trying to unload on some innocent bystander.
