WASHINGTON, Aug. 18 - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice warned this week that China must make significant structural changes in its economic policies, lest it remain "a problem for the international economy."

It must toast their buns to hear this from a black woman.

It is refreshing to have a SoS that can connect the dots, that actually knows something and has a real education.

China has been a problem for the U.S. economy for sometime.They've got a stranglehold on our economy. Try shopping for American made products and you will likely find goods made in China leading the pack. American made goods? As hard to find as a genuine public servant in Washington.
