We are talking about the largest economy in the world here. And the answer, according to Noah Smith, is China.

I started talking about the downfall of the U.S. in 2009. Finally, some one agreed with me eight years later.

What’s even more surprising to me is this: Noah Smith believes that China will eventually come out on top if these two countries engage in a conventional war. He cites China’s advantages in population and manufacture prowess.

I am glad that I get to see this happening in my life time. 中國, The Midfle Kingdom, has come back to glory from the humiliation it suffered after 甲午戰爭, the First Sino-Japanese War, and the signing of 馬關條約, Treaty of Shimonoseki in 1895.

Well, 甲午戰爭 and 馬關條約 are history now and, finally, a brand new chapter in 中國近代史 has begun with China’s 十九大, the 19th Communist Party congress, and its 十三五, China’s 13th Five-Year Plan.

While Trump is writing a $25,000 check from his personal account to the father of a dead soldier and arguing with a Democratic Congresswoman about what Trump said to another dead soldier’s family, China is walking its own path and carrying out its expansion plans systematically.

Yeah, let Trump tweets and pisses off at everyone who disgrees with him, McCain, Tillerson, Muller, McConnell, Schumer, CNN, NBC, NFL players and many others, the family feud makes good drama for the world to enjoy.

Take a look of this chart and what do you see?

 Source: Bloomberg

The current stock market hasn’t had a 10% correction for more than 1,000 days now. I made this chart about 200 days ago and the chart suggests that the longer the market goes up without a 10% correction, the harder it will fall when one is coming.

There are four data points: 850 days: -19%; 1,250 days: -34%, 1,450 days: -22% and 2,950 days: -19%.
So, which one will the pending correction will be?
I don’t know but it is going to be painful.

 

 

Sorry, Obama, you are not smart enough August 25, 2010

Now, if Obama is really smart, he’ll have the tea/wine summit at Ground Zero and have a friendly AP reporter take a few photos from far away for evening prime time news.

He’ll then have his Press Secretary send  our a statement saying that the White House will appoint a “Blue Ribbon” inter-Faith  panel and Obama will go by whatever the panel recommends.

The controversy will then be off the prime time news for at least 6 months.

In the mean time, a wealth Jewish buyer with connection to Bloomberg will pay $20 million to the developer for the property. Sharif El-Gamal will be happy because he walks away with a nice $15 million profit.

NY Governor Peterson will then offer a piece of state property 10 or 8 blocks away from Ground Zero not in the line of sight from the Twin Towers free of charge or a 70-year and $1/yr lease to Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and Daisy Kahn.

Obama will then help Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and Daisy Kahn raise the $100 million needed for the mosque. The agreement between Imam Rauf and Peterson is that  the new and bigger Cordoba House can be bigger and taller and it doesn’t have to be called a community center either.

Sharif El-Gamal is happy because of the $15 million profit.

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is happy because he got mosque built not too far from the hollow ground. He also didn’t have to call it a community center and the mosque will not be open to the Jews or Christians.

Daisy Kahn is happy because she didn’t back down from the Muslim haters.

Bloomberg is happy because his liberal reputation was upheld and he comes out stronger than ever.

Peterson is happy because he is looked upon as a effective negtiator.

The families of the 9-11 victims  are happy because the mosque is not pretty far away from the twin tower site.

The tax payers get the bill but the amount of the money involved is so small that the tax payers have no reason to complaint any more.

The American Muslims are now friends of Jews and Christians and everyone live in a big happy family called the New York city.

Taxi drivers from Egypt or Pakistan are happy because they no longer have to be afraid of Christian terrorists slashing Muslim drivers’ throats.

Finally, Obama is happy because Muslims like him and the conservative have no reason to hate him on this issue. He comes out as the Great Healer and somewhere in the Middle East, Muslims may erect a Obama sculpture to commenmorate this once-in-a-life time event. The wise Brother Obama may  even be included in Muslims’ text book and young Muslim school children will forever respect Brother Obama for his courage, wisdom and passion for world peace.

The 21th century crusade is no longer a threat and thew Jihad is also avoided. Muslims, Jews and Christians will live .happily after.

One thousand years from now, Muslim kids all over the world will still talk about Brother Obama.

Well, by that time, the crude oil will only be sold to countries friendly to Muslims because they will be the only countries (other than Canada) still producing oil anyway. The United States may be conquered by Muslims anyway, economically if not by force. And most of the citizens of the United States will be converted to Muslims if they want their daily rations of gasoline.

Bloomberg reaffirmed his stand of supporting the building of Ground Zero Mosque at an iftar dinner attended by the wife of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, Daisy Khan, and the Ground Zero Mosque developer Sharif el-Gamal.

At least Bloomburg stood on his ground.

Here was Obama at a White House ifter dinner celebrating of Ramadan with members of many prominent Muslim Brotherhood front organizations:

‘As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country.’ ‘That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances. This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable.’

Sounded righteous and noble enough.

But was Obama pandering to Muslims in the United States or was his message aimed at Muslims in the Middle East?

Or was it the appease Obama showing his true Muslim color and submission to shariah law?

But wait.

Here was the same Obama the next day after his Muslim pride and pandering to Muslims were critized:

“I was not commenting and I will not comment on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there.” “I was commenting very specifically on the right people have that dates back to our founding. That’s what our country is about.”

Weak knees, Obama? Bending of his spine to the strong wind blowing from other direction? trying to please both sides of the debate?

Now you put your foot in your mouth and raise the issue to “national” level. You have no one else but yourself to blame.

Do you think that the Muslims in the Middle East will be mad at him for his comment on Muslim’s wisdom?

But wait for another moment.

Didn’t White House Press Secretary Gibbs said on August 3rd that Obama would not get involved in the Ground Zero Mosque mess because it was “a local matter.”

He said that “This is rightly a matter for New York City and the local community to decide.”

Did Obama lied to the American people?

Did Hussein Obama the cheater offered the souls of those people who died on 9-11 on a silver platter to the Muslims during the iftar dinner at the White House?

You decide.

At least Bloomberg has back bone to stand on his ground.

Hussein Obama the appeaser wanted Muslims to take him in as a Muslim brother at the ifter dinner but questioned Muslims’ wisdom the next day.

Obama should call Bloomberg and learn a lesson or two from the New York Mayor.

What a stupid guy Obama is!

If Obama is smart, he’ll keep his mouth shot and invite people opposing to the ground zero mosque and Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, Daisy Khan, and the Ground Zero Mosque developer Sharif el-Gamal for a beer summit at the hollow ground of the Ground Zero .

Well, I take it back, make it a tea-for-Muslims and wine-for-the-others summit with some goat cheese from Middle East and some excellent white wine from the great state of New York.

Everyone will be happy and both sides will think that Obama is rooting for them. Muslims will be happy. 9-11 survivals will be happy. Obama will take the credit. Obama will come out smells like roses.

Instead, he opened his big mouth; not once, but twice.

Now the Muslims are mad at him. The 9-11 survivals are mad at him. Obama is kind like

“过街的老鼠, 大家喊打”

“guo4 jie1 de4 lao3 shu3, da4 jia1 hn3 da3”

Everyone yells “kill that mouse on the street”
