Do you know what happens to our country if we default on our debt? Tim Pawlenty tried really hard to do the very same thing in Minnesota. Our credit rating did go down. US Defaults on the debt every retirement account in the country evaporates.
    This doesn't help your assertion. China is an economic paper tiger that's even more on the brink than the US. Your fears may eventually come to fruition but it won't happen in our lifetime.

      And yet we still have 50% of the people in this country who will gladly pull the level for these clowns.

      Is there any doubt we will be part of China some time in the future. We're ceding power to them every single day.
      It's all Biden/Obama/AOC's fault according to them.

        • We won't be owned by China...but if we default China will definitely trigger the next Depression. (we wont default) Their BS economy will tank if the dollar gets prison raped which it will if we default. (again, we wont)

          If this were to happen it would make 2008 look like a bad weekend in Vegas. Hell it would make what was the possible outcomes of 2008 look slight. The GOP wouldn't just be destroying our economy the domino effect would be crazy. Which is why it won't happen...

            While I agree with all of that...not sure that is really relevant to what Scooby is saying. I mean school boards may be idiots but they don't deserve to have their lives threatened because they want to protect kids.

            The irony of Josh Hawley whining about how it is wrong for the DOJ to do this is delicious since he cried like a 2 year old cause 12 people with candles and flyers sang songs outside his house. Apparently peaceful protest = attacking his family and violent protest = first amendment baby! Sounds about right for this guy:

                  I hate them all. They're all fascist ******* pigs who need to get the fuck out of the way and let the adults run the country. I almost hate the people that vote them in more than them.

                      This. China exists and is prosperous because their owe their economy to the offshoring of several US industry sectors looking for cheaper labor in order to meet big box store pricing requirements or deliver mediocre software for pennies on the dollar. What China has been doing in the last 10-15 years is only natural. The US was never going to be alone at the top and without a rising ideological and economic adversary for very long. China can bluff and troll the United States with various military exercises and land claims for Xi's new would-be empire, and put on a good display of supposed "cultural superiority" and power for world events like the Olympics (ala Hitler in '36), but they are a long way from defeating the US militarily or economically and becoming the world's next only superpower.

                      If the US slips off the peak of the world stage, it's going to be due to ideological conflict from within. You can see the rot already rising to the surface in the last 5-10 years thanks to the rise of social media and 15 minutes of Internet fame. This is why Russia and China employ whole cube farms of "wumao" (paid trolls) to spam Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, etc. and get those platforms trending with things that make the US look bad, and to ridicule accounts that criticize the CCP or Putin. It's as much to sow the seeds of chaos internally, as it is convince their own citizens that Russia and China are doing fine and Americans don't have it any better than they do.

                        That is very true. I mean the lame anti-vax arguments are word for word what the morons said about seatbelt laws in the 1980s...

                        • Speaking of things trending "#TrumpisBroke" is trending because:

                          https://twitter.com/kimposble3/statu...73373618479106

                          Trump DC hotel incurred more than $70 million in losses while Trump was president, documents show
                          From the article:

                          Former President Donald Trump racked up more than $70 million in losses over a four-year period from his Washington, DC, hotel, while publicly claiming that the hotel was making more than tens of millions of dollars, according to documents released by the House Oversight Committee.

                          It's the first time that congressional investigators have reviewed and released details of the former president's financial information. The Manhattan district attorney and New York attorney general investigators have reviewed Trump's financials, but none of that has been made public.
                          Trump's income from the Trump International Hotel reported in public financial disclosures dating from 2016 to 2020 totaled more than $156 million, the committee said Friday.But in that four-year period, Trump's DC hotel actually suffered a net loss of more than $70 million while he was president and had to be loaned more than $27 million from one of Trump's holding companies, DJT Holdings LLC, from 2017 to 2020, according to hotel financial statements the committee obtained.More than $24 million was not repaid and was instead converted to capital contributions, the committee said.
                          The documents released Friday raise "troubling questions" about the lease with the General Services Administration and the "agency's ability to manage the former President's conflicts of interest during his term in office when he was effectively on both sides of the contract, as landlord and tenant," the Oversight Committee's Democratic chair Carolyn Maloney wrote in a letter Friday to the GSA.
                          The committee is also requesting that the GSA produce more documents by the end of two weeks.
                          The GSA, which manages federal buildings and land, awarded the lease for the Old Post Office building in 2012. Trump opened the hotel in 2016, when he was the Republican nominee for President.
                          Since then, the Oversight Committee has been investigating conflicts of interest regarding GSA's management of the Trump hotel lease.When he took office, Trump resigned from his companies but transferred his assets to a trust run by his sons, allowing him to still benefit financially from the DC hotel and his other businesses.
                          In 2019, the inspector general of the GSA said the agency "ignored the Constitution" when deciding to maintain the lease of the building to the hotel after Trump was elected to the White House.

                          • BTW, I'm all for MAGA biker lunkheads choosing not to wear helmets, or Cleetus not wearing a seatbelt to own the libs when he goes into town rollin' coal in his F-250. Those are examples of a personal decision that impacts no one else, except perhaps your family if you get maimed or killed. The spread of viruses and bacteria is another matter.

                              • Scalise was unable to say this Sunday to Chris Wallace that Biden won the election. He's the number two guy for the GOP in the House. It's pretty funny that McCarthy is saying he can't be subpoenaed for anything cause the Jan 6 commission wasn't bipartisan.

                                Hillary Clinton testified in front of Congress for Benghazi. More Americans died on January 6th. Of all the hypocrisy in the World this one takes the cake.
