Look here! We're on the outside looking in now.

Who would have thought we could go from policy maker and world diplomatic leaders to the bastard son in a few short years?

So? With the exception of China, who seems to be figuring out on their own that free-market capitalism is a good idea, it's about time some of the rest of these nations stood on their own two feet. I wish them luck.

How does this make us a "bastard son"?

Oh.... I forgot you're a card-carrying member of the "everything is our fault" club.

China has two systems. One for foreigners, one for Chinese Nationals. The govt. still controls what they can own and with whom they can do business. Hardly capitalist at all.

I never said they had it completely worked out. They certainly do not.

I just meant that they've taken a couple of steps onto the right path.
