Yep and how long you think we got? Read all of these posts. And the one thing we haven't is more time, we have to do it now and the best place to start and save big time is stop both wars and get out of Iraq.

Which cost 10 Billion a month and that isn't what the CIA spends, which is blacked out.

If we step back and tell the world we aren't their police force, how much do you think we would have on the table to help with the cuts?

Well over 10 billion each month. And maybe twice that if we cut the black ops we have in about 105 countries.

Either we step back or go down. But thats just IMO. What we all know is we can't keep this BS up any longer.

As we can't keep borrowing to do it all. That is the simple truth. Screw the Military and it's wants as well with the CIA.

Both are like lose cannons and need to be brought back to reality.

As a nation we are so short sighted
I don't see it as paranoia. The Chinese culture/nation has been around for thousands of years (unlike our couple hundred) and they can view things through that prism. China has been called "The Sleeping Giant", the way I see it, that giant is waking up. The links Minty I have posted in this thread are about things that aren't getting a lot of media coverage, we can no longer just look the other way and pretend that elephant isn't in the room.
If the yuan replaces the dollar as the global currency, it's gonna be painful.

Nothing is Obama's fault; Messiah does no wrong
Everyone else is to blame; It's always the same old song
Barry, he is pure of soul; the rest are full of hate
Never mind the logic; facts will surely have to wait

Barry's bum,it smells so good; I can't take my nose away
It passes gas and sounds just like "The right's fault!" every day
I must reiterate the line; Obama's ass has spoken
Doesn't matter that his policies have all been broken
