Do everyone a favour, give China a reserve
Increased use of the yuan as one of the world's reserve currencies will force China to restructure more radically than its leaders may realise. It also could stabilise the country's rickety financial system, to the benefit the US and the rest of the globe

Give China a Reserve Currency
As former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell famously advised, China favors "overwhelming force" in its campaigns, military or otherwise. Most recently, in a direct challenge to the global economic architecture established by the U.S. and its allies after World War II, Beijing has pledged nearly $200 billion to various new lending institutions and funds -- to bolster trade with Europe ...

Resolved Question: What is a fascist state?
We all know about Nazi Germany and Mussolini's Italy, and some of us also know of imperial Japan as being fascist. Now, China can hardly be considered to be communist any more, especially since Zhu Rongji opened its stock market in 1990. However, I came across the argument in a class on Chinese government that China is becoming a fascist state. This view is advocated by liberal Chinese dissidents. I was initially skeptical of this argument, but in light of some videos that I have seen of extreme Chinese nationalism, which included a group of Chinese real estate agents dressed in Chinese Revolution-era costume putting on a pro-communist pro-nationalist performance, it struck me that it was not unlike nationalist demonstrations in Nazi Germany or other prominent examples of fascism. Additionally, China is authoritarian, which is an essential part of the definition of a fascist state. So, in my search for whether China qualifies as a fascist state, I must ask the question: what is a fascist state?

Resolved Question: How can US Not be
We are bankrupt. I challenge you to prove that we are not. Just saying that we aren't doesn't change the fact that the President still wants cuts of 4 trillion in 10 years and the Debt Ceiling will go up 5.5 trillion in less than 5 years. that's 9 trillion more in debt. How do you suppose the USA will pay this off when the rest of corporate America goes overseas to lower taxes. They get taxed in the USA at both the Federal and State level.

Resolved Question: A solution to all the
I have a great solution to the worlds problems. We put lots of funding into space travel and we find aliens. then we sell all the people who are a burden on society like the homeless and welfare recipients to the aliens for slaves. that means there are less homeless people and less people to take up resources, and the economy is richer. and then they can use this money for research into cancer and global warming so the people who do try hard in life and do put effort in are rewarded by living longer lives, and if your lazy then you get sent to the aliens to work as a slave.
great idea right???
