Have you noticed that Changamullah has become decidedly less vitriolic and a lot less "productive" of late?
Maybe this is the welcome beginning of his growing up?  ...


I think he's just tired of being comprehensively beated in these debates, although I would welcome any evidence of him maturing.

China has developed in the fastest way in the past three decades,and its economy is to become the third largest in the world only after the US and Japan.However economy is not the only factor that determines whether a nation is a large nation or not.A nation is considered to be a power according to its economy,the level of scientific development,soft power and so on .China's science development still lags behind developed countries a lot ,it has a limited influence on the world issue .So tt is still too early to say that China is a greatest nation

China is a very crucial country in the world. Many countries look to China to take the lead and show them the way. As the dollar drops and the American economy collapses, does this make China the greatest nation or only a great one?



It is the greatest nation , Beijin Baby and we, the outer aliens will have to make big efforts to follow the Great Leading Nation. Matching is yet out of our reach but minimalizing the distance should be first target.

I the beginning we will remove most of garbage boxes from the streets and employ thousands of extra cleaning guys. Then we will switch off part of street light signals, remove active lights from bicycles, fire all our policmen and replace them by the mentally handicapped ones. Sure we will teach them whistling whole days long.

Our people are not used to bang every ten seconds on the horn when driving, so here we may not get to the leading standard quickly, but this can be improved by fixing horn switches on every pedal , on every switch of front desk and even we may install them under seats. Thus on any street hole the sound signal will go off. Ah, we also need to add some holes to the street asphalt...

I was so unlucky this year to spend my time in the forest by a lake , very few people around , feeling lik on the Moon after a year in The Greatest Land...and whole time missing the dust, chemical fumes ...And I had to bear this horrible deathening silence..birds can't make for cars' horns. So sad.

There are lot of changes befor us in all branches of life , so we hould start working now. I am going to begin with random pencil strokes. One year later we will have a working set to replace our alphabet with. I bet it will give our kids a lot of fun and happines. They will not need to spend much  of their  precious time learning this crazy mathematics, geography, biology, history, astronomy. languages basics of street traffic etc. They will learn pictures instead.

how do you qualifiy your argument that "the American economy collapses"

american econmic growth may be slowing down, but to say it collapses is totally misleading

And how about the tens of thousands of ordinay Chinese who have retired to the EU ?
I bet they're happy with the rising Yuan, oh that's right , there aren't any because of the artificially depressed price of that currency.
