UNSETTLED

I'll admit that I've been watching too much Glenn Beck lately, but I have worked myself up pretty good this afternoon over the future of my country and the world. Hugo Chavez cancelled Valentine's Day, China said flat-out that they hate us, and Iran and Russia are testing nukes together.

We're boned.

1 You know my fondness for China, so I immediately clicked on that link and have to say that I agree with the guy...I don't think he means that China hates the US, but he hates it that the dollar has become such a poor investment, because of decisions by our government. Yes, it came out poorly, but I think this is similar to Rush saying he wants Obama to fail. I think Luo meant he hates it that we are cheapening things like this, because the dollar used to be the mighty dollar and now it's not. I don't know, but I read it that way...?

2 CVG -- I'm not shocked that he means it, I'm just shocked that he said it out loud, so blatantly...and what it means for the world economy.

3 OMG in a dorky way. I was watching him and thinking of you! I bet you like that planetarium coming to IL. So bizarre ... the state of things.

4 I agree with CVG about Luo Ping. I was expecting a lot worse. Marg bar Amrika-worse. I'd rather have him say what he really feels than pretend to be our friend. And I do share your fear about the world economy. When America falls, it will take the world down with it. The Chinese are not the superpower some have made them out to be. Luo may realize how dependent China really is.
