Nothing to be proud of if China's GDP reaches past that of the U.S. ?

Well, even if it is hardly  ...

re:   "at least in the commoner's mind."

Indeed, in this case you most certainly pin-point Uncle Sams commoner mind
  Others only wonder regarding such simplicity ...
     After all, success is not complicated, it is about people, behaviours and attitudes...

At a time when American Vice President Pence found it expedient for him to slam China in an all-out attack on Thursday, providing yet the best proof that America's days as the Number One economy in the world are indeed numbered, we persisted in keeping our fingers crossed and our mouths shut.  The only retort I have heard so far from the Chinese side was a muted one.

It is indeed that much more counter-intuitive for our FM Wang Yi to stand there on the UN podium vehemently DENYING that China has any intention to substitute America as the Big Brother (Yi Ge) amongst the family of nations.  

While I can understand that it is almost second nature for Chinese diplomats to adopt a low profile in presenting China's image, it is quite another matter for Wang Yi to even imply in his UN speech that China is tired of wargames and and that third-world countries should not expect leadership from China any time soon, and that it was best for them to follow America's lead in solving the world's problems even after Trump had unilaterally withdrawn from international platforms, shredding all multilateral material agreements that could have served to save the day,

The drop in unemployment figures in the U.S. to its lowest in a long long time is nothing strange.

It is because of the Age Wave demographics.

When a large segment of the American population moves into the baby-boomer retirement age, they are not going to apply for unemployment benefits as unemployed workers.  

Instead, they are just going to stay home and watch their grandchildren or their pampered dogs.

So combining the number of retiring baby-boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) and the low number of job-seekers amongst them, of course the unemployment figure is going to be low.

But does Cheating Donald tell you that?

No.

Does anyone in his cabinet tell you that?

Nope.

That's because they want the public to think they have macro-managed the economy so well that unemployment figures are really going to reflect the current employment situation in America.

Tell that to the millions of skilled and trained white-collar workers who can't find jobs in their fields, and you know it is not the true picture.

Stop pretending and stop this trade war now!

It doesn't matter whether China assumes technological leadership by 2025 or 2027.

The important thing is to secure Meng's release from Canadian custody in 2018 and not a day beyond.

Or else Huawei will lose a larger chunk of Western nations supporting its 5G platform because Huawei's success isn't just due to its technological prowess, but its image of having strong support from its Chinese motherland.

Without that image, Huawei will be in serious trouble.

This is a political crisis of the first order, and we cannot let the U.S. set the agenda by wrongfully extraditing her to the U.S.  

What Trump is doing is blackmailing China while the trade talks continue, and Huawei's own announcement that it trusted the impartiality of U.S. courts simply missed the point -- which shows that  it either has terrible legal advice, or that it was simply acting in accordance with governmental guidance.

Meng's release from Canadian custody is of utmost importance to China's image in the world -- far more than how many Spaniards, Argentinians, Panamanians or Portuguese line the streets or wave our flags in welcoming our leaders.

And it really doesn't matter whether China assumes technological leadership by 2025 or 2027.

The important thing is to secure Meng's release from Canadian custody in 2018 and not a day beyond.

If this is not resolved to our satisfaction, we should seize the CEO of any American company that is found to have had any dealings with Taiwan in violation of the Three Communiques that the U.S. had signed with China.

The trouble with our side is that we believe in the worthiness of words, or at least the signed documents, of any Western leader that has reached post-negotiation agreements with us.  We cannot imagine that they could be such shameless liars without even a modicum of self-respect.

We have had no or little experience dealing with complete scoundrels who put such documents into the paper shredder almost as soon as they are signed.  The winners of American elections aren't based on their trustworthiness, but on their demagoguery abilities.

So the only recourse to solve the Meng situation is to seize their CEOs based on their non-observance of the Three Communiques in trading with the Taiwanese on our largest offshore island.
