I was driving my three kids to school yesterday, when I passed the stimulus funding sign on the side of the road and it looked different. I took me a couple of seconds and then it hit me. In black spray paint someone wrote, “Paid by China”. I would have stopped to take a picture but it was too late (I’ll do it today on my berry). Folks, I live in “The country”. The town I live in has two lights in it (and they are back to back) and
we co-exist with bear, deer and coyote.
The pounding of the China drums has been getting louder. From Congressman saying there will come a time when China says enough about funding Medicare and other programs to the soaring price of gold which of course is a reflection of the dollar. Some are predicting the handoff of world super power to China will be earlier than once thought.
Seeing the spray paint on the sign is just another indication that people have had enough. I’m glad my kids didn’t see it because then I would have had to answer their questions about why is China paying for this small section of road that was repaved.
As gold continues on its climb and the deficit gets larger and larger you have to wonder when China will cry “Uncle” to Uncle Sam. Some “country bumpkins” have had enough.
