Hmmm, demand huh? That makes me want to ignore you. But I know you well enough to know after I thought about it that you were being sarcastic, cynical, or some other emotion similarly making that statement meaningless. So here I am, still checking this forum occasionally, hoping to chat with someone again - I love that chat area. Unfortunately, I never find anyone else logged in.
I love Pink Floyd BTW, they are one of the dozens of bands that stick with my music taste, in my all-time favorites, across many decades. I've even been listening to "Wish you were here" (the whole album, not that it is very long) while playing Civilization V on the computer lately. That's a sad song, you know they were talking about that original band member (Syd Barrett) that went nuts - before they started to get rich from the music. As sad as it is, the album was a masterpiece. Now I have to mention "The wall" just because it was a masterpiece too - especially if you can understand the blues, and the frustrations of 'the common man.'
Well you asked me to post on your thread, and the only thing I can think about to say is what I was talking about in the chat box:
Yeah, I worry about the U.S. people, someday we may become slaves to China. People here don't take the Chinese debit seriously any more, and that makes it OK to borrow more than we will ever repay. People don't realize what kind of sticky foreign relations consequences this can have, especially if certain political/military conditions develop. If China demands that we begin repaying the debit, in a significant manner, but we don't, they have so many people that if they invaded the entire North America we would all be completely overrun and overwhelmed before we could really react. But I don't want to get into the military portion of this discussion, this is more about how bad we are for borrowing so much from another country. We have gotten so fat and complacent that most of us don't really have much of an idea of how bad a war is. I think that we think that it is much like (the more realistic) video games, but when you actually know someone, then see his guts spilled all over the place from being cut in half, that's really what war is like. Women and children without a source of support - hungry and infected with diseases. Yeah, it could happen here. Instead, we all just borrow more for that boat, 'cabin up North,' and to put their children through college - were they all cheat their way through using today's technology. I think judgement day is coming, and I'm not speaking of a religious judgment day, watch out for the Chinese. /end rant
