“I think it great, the whole current US will collapse and we will have a shot at democracy. For a new flag let's have Atlas crushed and flattened under a Golden Globe, that should get the point across. As the new commander and chief I will descend from the clouds with a case of Coors Lite singing Metallica!”
“You mean the Coporate Constitution that is warped form it's original intention to serve the rich?
Just google the words "Philip Morris inc Marley" When enough states go green, the Corporate State will take over and YOU sir will be madated by Fedarl LAW to burn at 4:20 each day!
Then we will have world PEACE
“Car's are just bad news. We will all live a much better lives when they have been phased out. Until then stay on the side walk and realize that drivers are becoming more and more inattentive with the proliferation of mobile apps. We also need more dedicated bike routs, cars and bikes just don't mix. Both the driver and the bikers are the victims of Car and Oil manufactures that care nothing for humanity. Just look at GM's decision to save 5 cent's and not fix a deadly flaw in there ignition switches.”
“No, not escape, WAKE UP, that's the point, there is NO administration, there is a Corporate Entity, and it's a fact our government is OWNED. So smoke a J and WAKE UP, it may just be what you need, just don't bong out 24/7 and leave a few chips in the bag for the kid's.”
“Jack's right Randy, when 911 hit almost all of the FBI agents that where responsible for policing the bankers where taken off the job and now we have a significant down grading of the US. Not to mention Chaney's 6 Trillion Dollar flub.”
“So called "Obamacare" was written to save the failing insurance and pharmaceutical corporations, and hospitals taxed by the uninsured.
Now the whole mess is imploding on itself and within five years we will have single payer with individuals responsible for there own health.”

“The ACA was written to insure more people, for instance, the ones with preexisting conditions and high risk individuals that for profit insurance companies didn't want to insure. Avoiding high risk patients is in the best interest of for profit insurance companies.”

“I've never heard of any of the insurance companies or pharmaceutical companies being on the verge of "failing." What specifically are you talking about?”

“The failing insurance and pharma industries? LOL”

“Oh, you kids and your wild stories are so amusing.”
Here is how::
1) Stop purchasing Chinese made goods. Wall Mart & Target will collapse and restructure.
2) Stop using gasoline as much as possible. Get a Bike, preferably a US made Cannondale.
3) Stop purchasing Chinese made electronics.
Do it now and many of these job's will return to the US.
If you have a set, and love the US you will do this now.
You have been warned.
Have a nice day ;-)”

“duuuuhhhh...Cannondale moved its U.S. production to Taiwan in 2009!”

“Why would you bring down the one country that supplies Americans with everything we have become far too lazy to produce on our own (at a far cheaper price)? You think trying to bring down one of our LARGEST trading partners is going to benefit our economy? Get a bike? Wall Mart and Target will collapse? Stop using Chinese made electronics? Hahaha!!! Who do you think supplies the raw materials for US electronic companies to make THEIR products? You are a clear example of a typical idealist that lives in a bubble of arrogance or ignorance. As a native American living in China, it's easy to see that they clearly have their shit together and the US simply does not. In China education is valued, respect is a default and friendship is not superficial. This is simply not true in the US. In the US education is a joke, respect is lost and friendship is based on what you can offer someone. Hopefully the US finally understands that they need to clean up their act when China overtakes their economy in 2-4 years. For the time being, China...not the US, seems like the real land of opportunity. Buying a bike won't help the US because their problems run FAR deeper.
Read an economics textbook before speaking, please.
You have been warned :)”

“Those jobs will never return to the US, and they are even more likely to stay in China if their economy were to be decimated by, say, a US "consumer embargo", which it wouldn't be. Not only are most consumer products or their components made or assembled in China, but most ingredients for things like vitamins and baby formula and laundry soap and paint and thousands of other items are manufactured in China.
Sorry, but you can't boycott everything.”

“"Bring Down China Now" is going to take a lot more than just 3 steps. The whole mess our world is in is too deeply rooted. It's almost like saying, let's take a journey down to Earth's core in 3 steps.”

“Some are already coming back, the big corps don't like dealing with the chinese workers.
Some of us are old and disabled...no more bikes in our future.”

“Unless you buy a high-end Cannondale, it probably isn't from the US.”

“Hey, I'll translate for you:
1. purchase nothing
2. gasoline is made in China so don't use that either
3. read any good books?
Please join the rest of us in what we call "reality".”
