I figure since China now owns the US, they can pretty much tell the states enough is enough. When your government are deferring or defaulting on loans, it's time to cut spending on your pet projects. The US military budget is obscene and considering how many returning vets are unemployed, maybe some of that money could be put into job creation that doesn't involve wars. Just a thought.

What's my point? Are you really that dense?
The USA is in serious debt trouble. The rest of the world is on pins and needles waiting to see if the US is going to Default on some very major loans in the coming three weeks.
If China was a bank and the US was a normal borrower, the whole house would be in serious trouble of being foreclosed on. Since it's a country and China wont be taking the house or the country they won't be lending you any more money. Now, how are you going to pay all those soldiers, or pay for all that war making equipment. or roads, schools, pension plans and so on...
China has/had every right to tell the US to smarten up and stop spending like the can print money. Do you have any idea what rising inflation will do to your country. If you think the states is in bad times now, wait. It's only going to get worse.
Do you understand the first thing about economics? If the US defaults on these loans, the whole freakin' world could be in a depression not seen for decades and then what?
You get to **** up the whole world's economy again and still act like the big boys on the block. Give you ******* head a shake.
This is bigger than party politics.
And if were going to go down that road, who do you think can fix this? The republicans who are doing their best to **** up the Obama government instead of acting like the "leaders" they are supposed to be. Instead of fixing the debt, they are styming the whole process. Dumb, dumb, dumb. But then they've got voters like you swallowing all their unbelievable stupid lies. The states either has to raise taxes or the country will sink.
This is the problem with people who never look outside their backyard, you insular little ****. Read a newspaper and please don't quote Fox. Look at how that disgusting Murdoch's policies in other countries screw with people. I know, that's too much for you to understand....
Idiot

@Fido,
We do not agree on how human nature works, nor how the world works in actuality. Just my opinion, but it is based on decades of observation. As Jack Webb said in the detective tv drama, "Only the facts Ma'am." No opinions, please.

@H2O MAN,
Dude, you are an ignorant jerk off. I posted the graph because idiots like you do not supply any context when you rant. I was doing you a favor by supplying appropriate context, you *******, inbred moron.

@rosborne979,
This is the best most accurate graphic I have seen on the spending in this country. Always knew military spending wasn't 50% of our GDP. I had always heard the real #'s were between 15-20%.
