A lot of truth.....

"Real Time" Liberal host Bill Maher closed his show Friday night by sounding the alarm on China's growing dominance over the United States.

"You're not going to win the battle for the 21st century if you are a silly people. And Americans are a silly people," Maher began the monologue, alluding to a "Lawrence of Arabia" quote.

Do you know who doesn't care that there's a stereotype of a Chinese man in a Dr. Seuss book? China," he said. "All 1.4 billion of them couldn't give a crouching tiger flying f--- because they're not a silly people. If anything, they are as serious as a prison fight."

Maher acknowledged that China does "bad stuff" from the concentration camps of Uyghur Muslims to its treatment of Hong Kong.

But he stressed, "There's got to be something between an authoritarian government that tells everyone what to do and a representative government that can't do anything at all."

"In two generations, China has built 500 entire cities from scratch, moved the majority of their huge population from poverty to the middle class, and mostly cornered the market in 5G and pharmaceuticals. Oh, and they bought Africa," Maher said, pointing to China's global Silk Road infrastructure initiative.

He continued: "In China alone, they have 40,000 kilometers of high-speed rail. America has none. ... We've been having Infrastructure Week every week since 2009 but we never do anything. Half the country is having a never-ending woke competition deciding whether Mr. Potato Head has a d--- and the other half believes we have to stop the lizard people because they're eating babies. We are a silly people.

"Nothing ever moves in this impacted colon of a country. We see a problem and we ignore it, lie about it, fight about it, endlessly litigate it, sunset clause it, kick it down the road, and then write a bill where a half-assed solution doesn't kick in for 10 years," Maher explained. "China sees a problem and they fix it. They build a dam. We debate what to rename it."

The HBO star cited how it took "ten years" for a bus line in San Francisco to pass its environmental review and how it took "16 years" to build the Big Dig tunnel in Boston, comparing that to a 57-story skyscraper that China built in "19 days" and Beijing's Sanyuan Bridge, which was demolished and rebuilt in "43 hours."

"We binge-watch, they binge-build. When COVID hit Wuhan, the city built a quarantine center with 4,000 rooms in 10 days and they barely had to use it because they quickly arrested the rest of the disease," Maher said. "They were back to throwing raves in swimming pools while we were stuck at home surfing the dark web for black market Charmin. We're not losing to China, we lost. The returns just haven't all come in yet. They've made robots that check a kid's temperature and got their asses back in school. Most of our kids are still pretending to take Zoom classes while they watch TikTok and their brain cells fully commit ritual suicide."

Maher then blasted Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, accusing him of degrading school standards by eliminating merit and substituting a lottery system for admittance to schools for advanced learners.

"Do you think China's doing that, letting political correctness get in the way of nurturing their best and brightest?" Maher continued. "Do you think Chinese colleges are offering courses in 'The Philosophy of Star Trek, 'The Sociology of Seinfeld,' and 'Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse'? Those are real and so is China. And they are eating our lunch. And believe me, in an hour, they'll be hungry again.

All truth. We are in a global war with China. And we cannot move forward.

Makes me sad how embarrassingly stupid, ignorant, and naaive we are as a country..... bitching about EVERYTHING, and arguing about irrelevant, stupid shit that more often than not doesn't really matter. Our lack of compassion and empathy towards each other needs work.

The Asian Century is upon us - It’s a numbers game at this point and the United States reign as the premier super power is going to be over. It’s 100% inevitable just like Britain before us.

2030 GDP forecast:

1. China: $64.2 trillion
2. India: $46.3 trillion
3. US: $31 trillion

You basically have the rich people with power and then slave labor. The wealthier the country gets the better the conditions get for the slave labor.

100% correct, but there’ll be a war here before we accept China’s type of authoritarian government. We need real People in DC, not these insufferable career politicians. 98% of those in power are interested solely in maintaining that power, without giving two shits about their constituents. Our problem isn’t lack of socialism, it’s the F’ing SWAMP

We are the biggest pussy’s in the world. Maher is right, but we can’t accomplish anything in the 50 states because we are so damned environmentally wacko, we have to study it for 10 years, litigate and fight over it for 20 and by that time the lawyers have taken all the money. We can’t use domestic oil on federal land because it may break a fingernail on a piping plover. We can’t build a dam to keep precious water in the upper 48 from going to the ocean because we may affect a nest of a leas turn and give constipation to a tree hugger.

China and Russia treat some people like dirt, but when it comes to progress, getting things done and dominating the new world they make us look like children with diapers. China has bought the world while we tried to police it. They don’t spend money on wars or spend money in a foreign country without getting 2X in return. People would be amazed what China owns in America and the technology they have stolen from us.

Trump was right about so many things in this new world but it’s too bad he was such a di.k that he couldn’t work with people and surround himself with the kind of people that would refuse to lose and get shit done. Paul Ryan was the worst thing that happened to Trump and hence the country 2016-2018.

Your mom's house
Do we really need a back and forth on a tongue in cheek post?
No, just trying to figure out what you’re saying. Honestly, that’s what I would expect in a socialist country, and that’s what libs try to convince everyone in America what is our current economic system.

That's basically what I was saying. You never get true socialism because there's the ones in power then everyone else. China certainly isn't quite that simple but it's reasonably close.

Thankfully, we have the brass balls of Joe Biden resting on the chair of the Resolute Desk.
