美國這個社會對男女的關係,家庭的和諧和倫理道德的標準並沒有任何特別的要求。你如果不相信我的話,你可以看看美國人都選出什麽樣的總統,就知道我的話不假了。

Bill Clinton 和 Donald Trump,就是兩個活生生的例子。也只有美國人在美國這種民主政治和社會風氣的熏陶之下,才能選出這兩個醜聞不斷的人做他們的總統。

先看 Clinton:

除此之外,Clinton 還承認他和 Jennifer Flowers 的婚外情。Clinton 做了總統以後,他和 22 歲的實習生 Monica Lewinsky 在白宮的醜聞還導致他成被美國國會彈劾。

再說 Trump,他的醜聞也是不斷:

Can you believe the president of the United States of America actually said that? 

America has long called itself the beacon of democracy. But, how could people of the beacon of democracy elect someone with this kind of perverted thoughts as their president is beyond me. Is Trump waiting for his day of reckoning? 

Probably not.

我看”近墨者黑,近朱者赤”,就是這個道理。美國人被好萊塢和政客洗腦了幾十年以後,當然會覺得結婚兩三次和婚外情是件正正當當的事。電影裏如此。電影明星如此。政客如此。總統如此。家中如此。久而久之,這個社會就自自然然的會覺得這是一個常態了。一個國家的道德標準就這樣從根本被腐敗了。

這是道德風俗腐敗還是社會進步的象徵呢?我都被搞得糊里糊塗了。

Yes, sooner or later, your Medicare premium will increase. It is coming for some next year. Surprised? Don’t be. You should know that it is coming. Don’t forget that Obama and Democrat controlled Congress robbed $700 billion from Medicare to pay for Obamacare. Did you know that?

And what has Obamacare done for you? And what shape is Obamacare at right now?

I said it before that the U.S. is moving toward socialism fast after 8 years of Obama. If Hillary and Bill are elected into the WH,  America is forever 淪陷.

Hello, middle class, get your tax money ready. America wants you.

Iran played Obama liked a clown July 18, 2015

Clinton, a democrat, kind of dispatched Carter, a democrat, to North Korea to negotiate a nuclear weapon freeze treaty with Kim Il Sung. After months of talk, North Korea and the U.S. signed a so-called Agreed Framework by which North Korea would freeze its nuclear weapon development program in exchange for aids. After Carter briefed Clinton on the agreement at the White House in 1994, Carter proudly declared: “I personally believe the crisis is over, and I personally believe Kim Il Sung wants to be sure that the crisis is over.” (Source: Los Angeles Times; June 20, 1994)

Practically, the minute Carter left Pyongyang, North Korea resumed its nuclear weapon development program and today North Korea is a nuclear nation with ballistic missile technology. South Korea, which is protected by U. S. troops, faces a real threat of total destruction from its neighbor to the north.

North Korea played Clinton and Carter like a pair of clowns.

Fast forward to 2015.

Obama, a democrat, dispatched Kelly, a democrat, to negotiate a nuclear weapon freeze treaty with Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani.

After months of negotiation, Kelly in March 2015 said that Iran and essentially the U.S. would sign a deal ‘inshallah” which was Arabic for “Allah willing.”

Source: Laura Rozen, http://www.teaparty.org/john-kerry-nuke-deal-iran-allah-wills-91978/

A few days ago, a deal between Iran and the United States was reached and the two nations will be friends again. Iran will stop the development of its nuclear weapon program in exchange for $150 billion of foreign assets frozen by the U.S. and its allies and other relieves most notably its export of crude oil to the world market. Iran is said to have to stop the program development for some 10 or few years and there will be no “anytime, anywhere” inspections because Kelly and Obama believe that this kind of inspection is not feasible. Iran can have weeks to prepare for IAEA inspection if Iran feels like it.

Things look real good, isn’t it?

But wait, Hassan Rouhani isn’t in charge. Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is. Here is what Khamenei has to say about Iran’s dealing with the U.S.:

Obama wants a deal with Iran. He got a great one from Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Obama wants a deal with Iran. He got a great one from Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

I think Ayatollah Ali Khamenei played Obama and Kelly like a pair of clowns.

 

North Korea signed a deal with the U.S. in 1994. It took North Korea 8 years to become a nuclear nation.

Iran signed a deal with the U.S. in 2015. It will take Iran fewer than 8 years to develop a nuclear weapon unless Israel does something about it.

Weiners and Clintons: A Combination made in Heaven. July 25, 2013

Watch out, New York! Clinton junior is asking for your votes. And Hillary junior is helping him out.

Weiner, or Carlos Danger, along with Huma have taken a page right out of Clinton and Hillary’s play book.

Listen to Weiner in case you’ve missed it: “I love her.” (smiles exchanged.) “She loves me. We have a son. Nothing else matters.”

Source: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/07/25/huma-abedin-faces-employment-questions/#ixzz2a7IiiNQm

Yeah! Except Weiner’s political career, Huma’s salaries and Weiner’s perversive life style.

It appears that traditional family value isn’t that important to American politicians

Here is why:

Thomas Jefferson                            President of the United States

John F. Kennedy                        President of the United States

Bill Clinton                                President of the United States

David Petraeus                         CIA Director

Newt Gingrich                          Speaker of the House

Arnold Schwarzenegger           Governor, California

Gary Condi                               Representative, California

John Edwards                           Senator, North Carolina

Anthony Weiner                       Representative, New York

Mark Sanford                           Representative, South Carolina

Barney Frank                            Representative, Massachusetts

Eliot Spitzer                              Governor, AG, New York

David Wu                                  Representative, Oregon

John Ensign                               Senator, Nevada

Henry Hyde                               Representative, Illinois

Robert Livingston                     Representative, Louisiana

Dan Burton                                Representative, California

Gary Hart                                   Senator, Colorado

Collectively, these famous American politicians have set a great example for American teenagers and young kids. We call it”以身做则“ or watch what I do not what I say.

I hope young parents have a good answer in mind when their kids are old enough to raise questions on these politicians’ behaviors. Oh! infidelities among movie stars or athletes such as Tiger Woods, are a given. That’s just the way it is. It’s the American way. No explanation is necessary.

No wonder the divorce rate in America is approaching 40% for all married couples; down from nearly 50% in the 1980’s.

What a great country America is! It probably ranks no. 1 in this category as well!

Well, an improvement is an improvement! Can’t argue with the trend, can I?

Is this the product of feminism or is there more to it than that? I guess this qualifies as one of the “progresses” of a progressive civilization.

1。 B. Clinton wanted her away so that she won’t be there 妨礙他的好事。

2。 H. Clinton didn’t get along with Obama.

3。 Obama sent her away so people won’t be reminded of the failure of Obama’s foreign policy: Iran, North Korea, Israel and OPEC.

4。 H. Clinton couldn’t stand all the lies exposed by Obama, Clinton and her fellow Democrats.

5。Obama has already decided to get rid of her in his 2nd term.

The guy is imitating Clinton’s trade mark: slick Willie.  With 2 years to go on his re-election, he is all the sudden concerned about US economy?

He is 9.4% unemployment rate too late. Or was it 17%? I lost count with so many variables in the unemployment report.

He should have done so in the first year when he took the office. Instead he worked on nationalizing health care against American people’s wishes.

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Obamas-economic-agenda-Boost-apf-2951829716.html?x=0&sec=topStories&pos=main&asset=&ccode=

Don’t be fooled by this guy. He is a liberal and will always be a liberal no matter what face is heading his economic team.

Paul Krugman has been saying the same thing about the Renminbi for a long time. A bad economic theory from Krugman’s mouth can sound like true after he tirelessly say it a thousand times.If you ask 11 economists for their opinions, you get 12 answers. Krugman’s rant is the 12th answer here.
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/21/opinion/21krugman.html?_r=1&emc=tnt&tntemail1=y
I am not sure that a stronger Renminbi is good for the US unemployment picture. The US may get a few thousand jobs here and there in the exporting industries but everyone in the US will pay more at Wal-Mart for goods coming from China. Is that good for the US economy? I am not so sure.
As of now, there is no other country in the world can replace China’s manufacture capacities. No one. In 10 years maybe. But not now.
No other country has the infrastructure to produce the amount of goods that China is exporting to the rest of the world now. If the US wants to blame someone, I am telling you that it was all Bill Clinton’s fault. His pro-Chinese policy triggered a tsunami of foreign direct investments rushing into China to build plants after plants. These American companies did it not because they don’t like American union workers. It was because they liked the Chinese worker much more. They don’t take 10 days of sick leaves a year. They don’t take 30 minute coffee breaks once every a few hours. They don’t read newspapers on company time. They don’t ask for double digit raises every few years. They don’t have fat pensions. They don’t have unsustainable health insurance benefits. They don’t come late and they don’t leave early. And they got paid at 1/5 or even 1/10 of the union wage doing similar work.
Who is the guilty party here? Americans, look into the mirror. That’s who. I haven’t mention that all these Amercian companies wnat to sell something to all these Chinese workers too.
The US promotes free trade. This is free trade. Live with it, Krugman.
The US has no one to blame but itself. Krugman, wake up and face the reality. It is not Renminbi problem. the problem lies with the costs of American workers. It is structural. It is system wide. There is no use to blame the Chinese currency. The America’s workers are not as competitive as you might believe. Period.
Hmm, did I mention other American problems such as QE2, The TARP, the first Obama stimulus and second smaller stimulus disguised as pay roll tax relief? The world will face a bigger inflation problem thanks to the Fed and US Congress. Is that what the world needs? Krugman?
So, shut up! Krugman!
Don’t talk up the Renminbi to hide the real problem of the United States. You can’t use a stronger Renminbi to compensate for a less competitive American worker force. If it ain’t so, the American companies will not move their capitals to China. They would more than happy to stay in the US. No one put a gun to the heads of these companies’ CEOs. They did it willingly. They did it with the support of their board members.

China is looking after its own interest just like the US does. What Krugman is not aware of or his sheer inability to think clearly is that China is not a pure capitalism country. The central government in China can direct significant power to where the problem is  that no US agency or Obama can match its effectiveness.What Chinese government is doing now is take a moderate, step-wise approach just like Chinese have been doing for hundreds of years.
What didn’t work in the Nixon era may be the right medicine in China if it is done judicially. Everyone predicted a 6+% inflation rate in December for China. It came in at 4.8%. Did you check your numbers, Krugman?
If the Chinese government wanted to, their actions can be swift and focused. As for the US, they have to weigh the pros and cons of every policy and each one of these policies is subject to attacks whether the government like it or not. As a Democracy, by default, many policies are moderate in nature at best because special interest groups will make sure it is so.
Except the ObamaCare which Democrats got it done behind closed doors, lie to the public, phony math and illegal bribes using public money. Well, that a topic for another day.

Bill Clinton Lied. Hillary is no different. January 15, 2011

A pre-requisite of a politician is be able to lie.

Be able to lie in front of cameras.

Be able to lie with a straight face.

As such, the higher the office, the greater a liar she or she has to be.

Bill Clinton lied. He lied under oath. He lied in front of cameras. He knew he lied.

And he got caught, humiliated and impeached. He got what he deserved unless he liked jail better.

Hillary lied as well. Her lies before the visit of China’s President next Monday are strictly for domestic consumption because China does not believe her or the Obama Administration. She said that the US is not trying to contain China. The US is merely cultivating allies in Asia to help it manage Beijing’s increasingly bold projection of military and economic power.

She is either 睁着眼说瞎话 “zheng1 zhe1 yen3 shui1 xia1 hua4” or, shall we say,  放狗屁 “fang4 gou3 pi4”:

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/15/world/asia/15diplo.html?_r=1&emc=tnt&tntemail1=y

The United States is no question the most powerful nation in the world with influences felt every corner of the world: Mid-East, Europe, Americas and Asia.

Except China.

The US treats China as its enemy and a threat to its super power position. It is uniting China’s neighbors; South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam and India; to contain China’s expansion both militarily and economically.

The US is hoping a repeat of the outcome of the Cold War with Russia where a military race with America bankrupted the former Soviet Union.

The United States has lost the economical war to China. In less than 20 years, from 1993 to 2000, the US  has become the biggest debtor nation in the world. The only thing the US has going for it is the US dollar which is used as the reserve currency of the world. That position is slowly being chipped away. When, not if, it happens, all hell breaks lose and the US will be in shit hole so deep that it has no way of getting out ever.

Now, let’s go back to the Cold War between the US and China.

The US wants a Cold War with China. I say:”Let them have it.”

Why?

Because that’s a sure way of bankrupting a nation, especially a nation like the United States.

Yeah, $600 billion per year! $700 billion per year! Why not $800 billion per year?

Let’s the US Congress approves all the weapons the military wants while green back is the king in the world. We are only talking about tax dollars from its citizens.Who cares about the national debt?

The thing is that the $700 billion or $800 billion won’t stimulate the US economy like it used to after the Great Depression. That $700 billion or $800 billion buys a lot of pork, supports a lot of waste and stimulates the economies of other countries where US stations its troops at.

Let the US borrow more money from China and Japan to fund its ambition of being the superpower in the world. It adds no real value to its economy. You can’t eat bullets. You can’t eat air carriers. You can’t eat cruise missiles either. And all that inventories require a lot of money to keep them functioning at all times while the roads, water pipes and infrastructures are crumbling down. They only serve one purpose and one purpose only: maintaining an image of the most powerful nation in the world. Other than that it has no real value except hastens America’s road to bankruptcy.

With all the lies from Clinton, China will not be easily intimidated. And China will do what it plans to do: 5 years at a time.

If you haven’t read Thomas Friedman’s Op-Ed piece, The Big American Leak, on New York Times, you should.

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/05/opinion/05friedman.html?_r=1&nl=todaysheadlines&emc=a212

The sad truth about the two American addictions Friedman talked about in his piece is that they can not be reversed no matter how hard American tries.

What Friedman failed to point out is that there are many other oil producing countries who hate America even more so than Saudi does. Iran and Venezuela are two prime examples while Russian and Iraq are not exactly America’s friends either.

Even worse, some of them tell the United States and the world that they are enemies of America. America may not import oil directly from these countries but the United States depends on them, as much as it does on the Saudis, to maintain their oil flows to avoid interruption of crude oil supply. If they decided to hold back their oil production a mere 10%,  for whatever reason that pleases them, the US will be paying $200+ a barrel to the Saudis now. And these countries also get paid at $200+ per barrel too.

Bill Clinton decided in 1993 to cooperate with China and he reckoned that the best way to deal with China was to convert China from communism to capitalism. He has succeeded more than he ever dreamed of.

The massive amount of FDI from the US and other countries since 1993 has allowed China to become the factories of the world, America included. With plants moving from the US to China, America has changed into a service-based economy and the aging of the 78 million baby boomers will make that even more so. America will continue to buy things from China or some foreign countries for the foreseeable future. In other words, the US will owe even more money to foreign countries as long as plants and jobs continue to leave the United States.

As for the dream mentioned by Friedman in his piece:

“If (the US) were in the process of converting to electric cars powered by nuclear, wind, domestic natural gas and solar power”

It will not happen simply because the United States is broke.

Period.

Trade War with China October 1, 2010

US House of Representatives passed a bill which allows the Commerce Department levy heavy tariffs on Chinese goods if China does not appreciate its currency, Renminbi, more aggressively. Although the fate of the bill is in doubt in the Senate, the Congress is doing that to look for a scape goat for the high unemployment rate in this country.

The reason for the political posturing one month before the mid-term election is about jobs. The United States has argued that Renminbi is under value by as much as 40% which out-sourced 2 million jobs to China. While America is asking China to raise the value of Renminbi, China has to keep its value low because a high exchange rate with the United States will put millions of Chinese companies into bankruptcy, force millions of its citizens onto unemployment lines and cause social unrest in the years to come.

Bill Clinton in 1993 decided that the best way to engage China was to have free trade with the country because China was an open market for American companies to make a few bucks. If the United States stayed away from this opportunity, companies from other countries will grab the market share and leave American companies playing catch-up from behind. As a result, American companies stepped over each other and opened shops and plants in China for the past 17 years.

Now with  unemployment close to 10%, the United States are crying wolf and the Congress is asking for a trade war with China.

Haven’t they learned their lessons form the Great Depression? Didn’t they know that a trade war after the signing of the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act of 1930 was one of the major reasons why the Depression last more than a decade?

If the Congress and Obama want a trade war with China, China will give them one just to teach the US a lesson. An all out trade war will reduce bilateral trades, further increase unemployment rate in this country and, worse, Americans will pay through their noses on almost every items they buy at Wal-Mart.

The bottom line is this: The United States is looking after its interests when dealing with China. One has to realize that China is looking after its interests too. China will raise the value of Renminbi when it is beneficial to China’s economy. The high unemployment rate in the United States has more to do with the structural change of its economy and less to do with the value of Renminbi.
