    The value of the US Dollar has dropped 30% compared to its perceived value 2 years ago. America is still spending hundreds of Billions of taxpayer dollars on two foreign wars and largely lacking the tax revenues to pay for rescuing several States from Bankruptcy.

    Meanwhile, China is happily loaning America money to fight both wars, and China is quietly purchasing huge gas, oil and mineral rights around the world while the economy is so weak at bargain prices.

    China is investing in its people's future, while America is pouring money into a black-hole and draining all reserves from its future citizens.

    Oh, I get it. The Glass is half full and everything is beautiful?
