    Within the next 5 years China is going to be eating our lunch. There will come a time that we really will want to stop the sale of our nation to China. :eusa_shhh:

    As long as we still have the Constitution it's never too late. We have to wrestle our Gov't back from the Bankers who hijacked it.

    Really? Better learn Chinese. Because the banks too will be owned by the Chinese, if the present trend continues.

    We have had a habit of selling our technology to asia just before it becomes a manufactuable product. The VCR was one excellant example.

    Now the only thing holding back EV's around the world is a battery of adaquete power. And the nation that controls the patents on that will become vastly richer very rapidly. China knows a good deal when they see it.

    Great...another Green Industry FUBAR by Obama. And this one's a double hit. It's a taxpayer-funded failure and our military contracts (national security) will fall into CHICOM hands.
