Is this another Wikileak item?

This amounts to China shaking a bunch of IOUs in America’s face and screaming “you promised us!”

While continuing to operate the Wal-Mart cheap-junk factories at full tilt.

“China is the largest holder of US debt, underpinning US government spending. Its holdings of US Treasuries have more than doubled since 2007. “

And Obama and the Dems want to keep spending and borrowing more from China, giving them even more leverage.

Was there any doubt? And, unfortunately, we can’t pin all the blame on Obama and the Democrats. The Bushes were very big about making China more like us and they instead succeeded in making us more like China.

There is nothing more frightening to me than to have America enslaved to China’s masters by our own debt. IT MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO HAPPEN.

It was mad folly to borrow from Red China.

Our children will rue this madness.

Well of course, our debt is killing us, balance all state budgets this year, eliminate all programs until states are solvent, then yank the federal governments ability to raise any money through any means, it should exist at the whim of the states..

Just thought people should know this.

I think I speak for all FReepers when I say we most definitesly do NOT need to know this. This makes the US government look bad.

I think I speak for all FReepers when I say I wish the government would kill foreign journalists before we, the people, learn more about the bad things the politicians do.

That's real conservatism.

If the leaks don't stop, we need to nuke London to get rid of that Assange guy. It would be worth it to keep the American people uninformed about embarrassing things that make the US government look bad.4
