    Sad but true. If we had passed one of the many Republican Balanced Budget Amendments, that Democrats defeated, what would the Chinese and Japanese do with all their WalMart and Toyota dollars.

    Answer: with no debt to buy they would have to buy our goods and services!

    No, they could buy anything else denominated in dollars or exchange their dollars for any other currency.

    They could, if they chosen to, have bought GM and Chrysler. Or mortgages nearing default, or quick deeds on distressed US homes, oil leases in the Gulf, commodities to stockpile and commodity futures etc.

    They buy our debt because republicans and Obama are spendaholics and the Chinese are saving our bacon by keeping our nation afloat.

    BTW Gary Locke, former Governator of WA, is gonna be the next US ambassador to China. Now there's a dem who can teach the republicans everything there is to know about balancing a budget. Hellava smart guy too.

    skeptic: No, they could buy anything else denominated in dollars or exchange their dollars for any other currency.

    Brutus: no one anywhere in the world will take even one US dollar unless they are sure it will buy something of value in the USA where it ultimately must be spent. If there were no Treasuries to buy it would would be spend it the USA very soon and cause a nice boom.

    Skeptic: They could, if they chosen to, have bought GM and Chrysler. Or mortgages nearing default, or quick deeds on distressed US homes, oil leases in the Gulf, commodities to stockpile and commodity futures etc.

    Brutus: why would they gamble on GM and Chrysler???

    Skeptic: They buy our debt because republicans and Obama are spendaholics

    Brutus: actually Republicans want a BBA to stop spending dead. Its been in all the papers

    Skeptic: and the Chinese are saving our bacon by keeping our nation afloat.

    Brutus: They have only $1 trillion in debt at the moment so hardly enough to keep economy "afloat". If they spend the trillion on our goods and services that would help keep it afloat. Loaning it to liberals, through treasurues, for one shot welfare payments hurts, not helps the real economy.

    Skeptic: BTW Gary Locke, former Governator of WA, is gonna be the next US ambassador to China. Now there's a dem who can teach the republicans everything there is to know about balancing a budget. Hellava smart guy too.

    Brutus: Republicans do know everything that is why they want to make deficits illegal.

    OH MY GOD!

    The republicans are the world champions of deficit spending for 30 years and now that a small minority of republicans finally decide to lie to the electorate and pretend that they support balanced budgets you suddenly want to christen the repubs as the party of fiscal conservatives.

    What a hoot!

    Meanwhile Governor Gary Locke has been behind balanced budgets longer than everybody in the republican party combined.

    If you head wasn't born in your ass you would know better than to post your bs. But you don't. Shame on you.

    And I am no liberal, no democrat, no Obamabot. I just loathe partisan liars of both stripes.

    You aren't even worth the water to flush you.

    Brutus: actually BO's deficits will be larger than all other American presidents combined. Plus Republicans since Jefferson have supported making deficits illegal. Last vote was last week. Only 10 Democrats suppported it in Senate!!

    Skeptic: and now that a small minority of republicans finally decide to lie to the electorate and pretend that they support balanced budgets you suddenly want to christen the repubs as the party of fiscal conservatives.

    What a hoot!

    Brutus: as I said, from Jefferson to last week 100% of energy to make deficits illegal has come openly from Republicans and been openly opposed by Democrats.


    Skeptic: Meanwhile Governor Gary Locke has been behind balanced budgets longer than everybody in the republican party combined.

    Brutus: longer than Jefferson???


    Skeptic: If you head wasn't born in your ass you would know better than to post your bs. But you don't. Shame on you.

    Brutus: no need to be embarrassed, you're a liberal


    Skeptic: And I am no liberal, no democrat, no Obamabot. I just loathe partisan liars of both stripes.


    Brutus: so why be so afraid to list the biggest Republican lie for the whole world to see?


    Skeptic: You aren't even worth the water to flush you.

    Brutus: no need to be embarassed

    Jefferson founded the Democratic party, idiot:

    I am probably to the right of you. But then again you are an abject idiot.

    5.5 million – the number of manufacturing jobs lost in the last decade – roughly one-third of the manufacturing workforce.
    51,000 – the number of manufacturing plants shuttered in the last decade.
    2.4 million – the number of American jobs lost or displaced between 2001-2008 due to our massive and growing trade deficit with China.

    China’s Growing Economic Clout Underscores Importance of US Manufacturing : Yakima County Development Association – Yakima, WA

    Republicans blocked legislation that would bring jobs back to this country.

    What else can you say? The truth is the truth. The crazy Republican base hands the gun to their leadership pleading, "Shoot me, please".

    Obama has done nothing to bring those jobs back because he doesn't care either. Wake up.
