We did it to ourselves

America's lust for stuff on the cheap has put us in a bit of a bind. We built up China; fed the machine for the last decade, and now we find ourselves the exporters of nothing more than big, discounted automobiles, a failed capitalist ideology, and crappy hip-hop music. We're no longer the spend-happy consumers we once were. As our belts have tightened, the Chinese have loosened theirs, and there ain't a thing we can do about it.
One more thing: This weekend, as you watch the Olympics, keep in mind that it's being hosted by a Government that seized land, kicked the homeowners off their property, and then bulldozed the homes to make room for that lovely building those athletes are competing in. Communism and Capitalism - what a lovely mix!
