chilling

i don’t make any bones about the fact that i get my news from the daily show. but sometimes it comes in strange ways and hits me in the face. tonight, ted koppel was on pimping his latest discovery channel special on capitalism in china and somehow the conversation turned and he just made it real plain. boom. china and japan own us. i already knew it, but to hear the numbers again was just chilling. 300 million of the chinese have just become middle class. that’s practically our whole country.

and we’ve done a war for the the first time without raising taxes. where has the money come from? i guess something like 28% of our treasury has been borrowed from china and 26% from japan. fucking yipes. the thing about it is, if you asked 100 people, i bet 4 might know that.

roman. empire. scary.
