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.

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...?

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.

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.

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.

ĄGo, go Hugo! Valentine's Day is a heterosexual Christian concept! Good riddance!

Obama should declare next November to be lOve mONth in honor of his enthrOnement. Public schOOls can force children to contribute to bOOks about the One!

Like the late Saparmurat Niyazov, Obama can then rename months after members of his family! All hail the Omerikabaşy!

As for Russia and Iran nuking together, just think, we could have been by their side if it hadn't been for Bushaitan's theft of the throne! But keep hOping for change. One day the whole world will embrace a certain UN resolution!

I have been depressed since the Obama train started coming down that track. I find it hard to believe that the nation I have been so proud of for so many years has so many people, including one of my own sons, who fell for this guy. In my day a progressive was the word they hid their communism behind now they say it proudly like it's a GOOD thing. Animal Farm is definitely here, just look at the words used by the left. It is very disheartening. Even George McGovern has an ad running against the union trying to take over.

I loved the part where Biden didn't know the address for the website he would be updating on how oversightie he was gonna be. You don't mess with Joe. Except maybe sometimes you can try and it'll work.
