7. In one way, it's already happened
because China has taken over whole industries, ones we'd need to survive a big war and the loss of which will bring us to our knees rather quickly should we face another big war.

There are signs, however, that limited manufacture in some industries is coming back because shipping costs are starting to affect the multinational corporation's bottom line more than manufacturing at point of consumption with more expensive labor does.

As for a Chinese takeover of our government, forget it. China is not an expansionist power, preferring to stay within its borders (and it considers Tibet to be within its borders). They would far rather stick to managing their own country while being in a position to garner the rest of the world's wealth.

2. I for one welcome our new Chinese overlords...
And I'd like to remind them that as a trusted TV personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.

10. Same way I'll react when the ferocious Grenadians take over.
Or, is it the Cubans? Russians? Vietnamese? Venezuelans? Iranians? Syrians?

Oh, well the country is clamoring for "change".

12. regarding china and our debt, recent info on dailykos indicated that
2/3 of america's debt obligations are in-country and china actually has just a small slice of our debt, like maybe 10% (trying to recall the info). problem is, 10% of a huge number is also a huge number.
We are their best customer so its in their interest to be nice to us lol

23. Here you go... keep this handy
女士們先生們, uh,我們剛剛失去了畫,但是我們看了的為自己辯護。Corvair 太空船顯然被接管了 -- ' 佔領 ' 如果你希望 -- 透過一師傅巨型空間螞蟻的種族。困難分辨這個觀點是否他們將消耗被俘的地球男人或只是使他們成為奴隸。一件事情供是某些的:沒有停止他們;螞蟻將很快在這裡。以及我對一個歡迎我們的新昆蟲最高統治者。我想提醒他們像受信任的電視個性一樣,我在集合其他的在他們的地下糖奮力前進方面可能是有用的塌陷

24. Will our eventual overlords be Chinese or just the fabulously wealthy international upper class?
China and India are evolving a class of billionaires with interests throughout the world. They are exercising more and more influence on their own governments because of their financial power. I think eventually they'll have more in common with the moneyed elite in Europe and North and South America than their own countrymen. A few decades from now, we may be living in a very different world.

28. I like Chinese.
The world today seems absolutely crackers,
With nuclear bombs to blow us all sky high.
There's fools and idiots sitting on the trigger.
It's depressing and it's senseless, and that's why...
I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
They only come up to your knees,
Yet they're always friendly, and they're ready to please.

I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
There's nine hundred million of them in the world today.
You'd better learn to like them; that's what I say.

I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
They come from a long way overseas,
But they're cute and they're cuddly, and they're ready to please.

<....
