We Are Not Making This Up! – Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown: “Anybody who makes $250,000 becomes a millionaire very quickly, if you save,” he said, adding you could hit the mark within four years. – Yes, Jerry Brown….YOU Are A MORON and AN IDIOT! – Yes, A Family Earning $250,000 A Year That Lives In San Francisco Can Become Millionaires In Only FOUR Years….According To Jerry “I Wouldn’t Know An Honest Day’s Work If It Hit Me in the Ass” Brown! – Our Recommendation If You Live In California….Drink….A Lot!

From the…

It could ONLY happen in the Broken State of California File

….we have Government “Moonbeam” Brown on the loose again with the following amazing statement about the BIG tax raise he and the California Teachers Union are supporting in the Fall election (which will funnel Billions of Dollars to the massively underfunded teachers pension fund which is massively underfunded to the tune of $100 Billion Dollars Plus because…..teachers don’t pay enough into their pension fund and the pension fund is run by Morons!):

Jerry Brown appropriating “Millionaires Tax” name, San Francisco Chronicle

“Gov. Jerry Brown is using the “Millionaires Tax” moniker for the compromise tax proposal that he and the California Federation of Teachers agreed to after CFT dropped its initiative of the same name.

While the compromise proposal increases taxes for people making more than $250,000, along with raising the sales tax for everyone, the famously frugal Brown said this week he thinks the name is fair.

“Anybody who makes $250,000 becomes a millionaire very quickly, if you save,” he said, adding you could hit the mark within four years.

We’d like the number for your accountant, governor.”

Oh, that is a Helluva statement by “Moonbeam” Brown but since “Moonbeam” grew up a Trust Fund Boy and has been on a the government payroll for most of adult lifetime he clearly doesn’t understand that according to the Fiscal Times (The Real Cost of Living: $150,000 Minimum) to have “Middle Class” lifestyle when living in the CALIFORNIA city of San Francisco you must be making….


Yes, a family making $250,000 which will take a BIG hit by Jerry “I love punishing people that work their ass off” Brown’s “Millionaires Tax” can “save” according to “Moonbeam” $1 Million Dollars in four years!

Oh, Stop the Damn Idiocy!

Oh, this is California we are talking about here otherwise known as…

The Land of the Morons and the Home of the Idiots!

And who is the current “leader” of the Land of the Morons and the Home of the Idiots?

The below LEAD Moron who really does believe that….

“Anybody who makes $250,000 becomes a millionaire very quickly, if you save.”

No, not even the best Bullshitters in Hollywood could make this kind of stuff up and IF Jerry Brown and the Wacko Liberal Nuts do raise the Top Tax Rate on people making more than $250,000 a year to….

13 Percent

….that will mean most people in California will be paying about 40 PERCENT of their income in taxes to the US Government and the Broken State of California which would leave the $250K per year earning family with about….

$147,500 take home pay per year

….and according to “Moonbeam” a family taking home $147,500 a year living San Francisco can save $1 million dollars in four years…..right?

This is very simple: Jerry Brown is a MORON and he is a MORON that has destroyed the economic futures of millions of Californians during his time on this Earth and sadly for the hard-working people of California….

Jerry is not done with his job destroying magic just yet!

Our recommendation if you live in California right now….

Drink……a lot!

California Faces Increasing Dependence On High-Prices Oil Imports Because the Wacko Liberal Nuts Running the Broken State Into the Ground Are Dreaming of “Green Jobs” Which Has Already DOUBLED the Price of Energy on Hard-Working Californians? – Yes, That Sounds About Right….BUT….Energy Prices Will DOUBLE Again In the Next Five Years As the Wacko Liberal Nuts Continue Their Bogus Fight Against “CO2” and of Course Their Never Ending And All-Out Direct Attack On Business in the Broken State – “California Here I Come….NO…..Only A Moron Would Be Going To or Staying In California!

Not that the Wacko Liberal Nuts that are running the Broken State of California into the ground give two-rips about the high cost of energy for hard-working Californians which they have doubled in price since they passed the Global Warming (Final) Solutions Act in 2006 which will see energy prices double again in the next five years as the Biggest Destroyer of Jobs in the history of Man and Woman on Earth, the California Air Resources Board, implements their “Cap and Trade” system (which is just another way to tax business and individuals under another name besides “tax”) there is a report out this morning from the Los Angeles Times that shows just how…

Incredibly Stupid the “Leaders” of California Really Are

California faces increasing dependence on high-priced oil imports, Ronald D. White, Los Angeles Times

“A modern-day oil boom in states like Texas and North Dakota has helped the U.S. reduce its dependency on foreign oil to the lowest levels in 12 years. Unfortunately, California isn’t benefitting, and steady declines in the state’s production will leave it increasingly dependent on expensive foreign crude in the future.

Of the nation’s five top oil-producing states, only two have seen steady drops since February 2006. They are California and Alaska, according to Energy Department statistics. In California, (counting onshore and offshore sources) the numbers have fallen from about 18.5 million barrels a month to about 17.5 million barrels a month currently.

And since California’s only other significant source of U.S. oil is Alaska, the news is doubly bad. Alaska’s onshore and offshore production decline has been precipitous, falling from more than 50 million barrels a month to about 39 million barrels a month during the same period.

California has depended on Alaska oil to fulfill some of its energy needs. It arrives in Southern California, for example, by tanker. But there are no pipelines from any other part of the U.S. that can supply California with more domestic oil.

This is one reason why the California figures to maintain its dubious distinction of having the highest retail gasoline prices in the 48 contiguous states. Oil imports already account for 48% of California’s crude needs, according to the most recent California Energy Commission figures, and that dependency will continue to grow.”

What REALLY makes the above Idiocy by the “Leaders” of California so Incredibly Stupid is that if the Wacko Liberal Nuts in Sacramento actually gave a Damn about the People of California and actually used the NATURAL RESOURCES that are abundant both on and off the coast of California the Broken State could also have a booming economy and very low unemployment rates just like North Dakota has…..RIGHT DAMN NOW.

As we wrote in this blog back in February of this year the Governor of California Jerry “I just love Sticking-It-To hard working people and thus they WILL PAY much more for their energy use” Brown actually gave a Damn about anything but his precious Trust Fund Boy Ass he would unleash the Massive Amounts of oil and natural gas that are abundant in California and which would again turn California into an engine of economic growth for the entire country as it has been since World War II.

Below is that blog entry about how the Wacko Liberal Nuts in Sacramento are spreading immense amounts of Pain and Suffering across the Broken State because they are like most Morons in America today enamored with “Green Jobs” which is a form of mental sickness often associated with people that have never worked a day of their lives in the REAL World or in other words not a day of work not on a college or government payroll:

“California Governor Jerry Brown Fires A State Regulator Who Was Trying To Stop Oil Drilling In the Broken State – Question: Will Jerry Brown Now Make A Call To the Man That Is Fundamentally Changing World Energy Markets…Harold Hamm….With His Find of HUGE Oil in North Dakota Who Could Very Well Change the Future and Fortunes for the Better in California? – If Jerry Brown Gives A Damn About the People of California He Will Call Harold Hamm and He Will Tell the Elites in San Francisco and Los Angeles To Go To Hell Because Double-Digit Unemployment Rates Are Not Acceptable Which No Exist Just So Elitist and Very Sorry Bastards Can Claim “They” Are Saving the World – Make the Call Jerry Brown….Make the Call To Harold Hamm”

Come on….Everyone knows that Jerry “If my last name was Smith instead of Brown and my Daddy hadn’t been Governor of California (Pat) first I would be digging ditches in Bakersfield right now because that is the only thing I am really qualified to do” Brown is not going to call Harold Hamm or anyone else to start taking advantage of the Massive Amounts of NATURAL RESOURCES that exist in California right now which means the Broken State economy will continue to meander along doing basically nothing except save a few Silicon Valley companies like Facebook that have Massive Profits Margins because there are lots of Very Stupid People that are willing to hand over their personal and private information for free to a company who in our opinion could care less about their customers…BUT…that also defines Apple Corporation as well only Apple has a couple of million young workers in China working for what we consider slave wages building IPads and IPods that of course Wacko Liberal Nuts that claim to care about “the people” buy by the millions.

Just this past week UCLA’s Anderson Business School put out an economic report for the state of California that predicts not the kind of BIG recovery that the state of California experienced during ALL of its history after World War II, but…

UCLA Anderson, Economic outlook OK, but not rosy, San Diego Union-Tribune

“The weather’s warm, the job picture’s looking up, housing seems to be stabilized. So, we’re out of the woods, economically?

“Curb your enthusiasm,” says David Shulman, senior economist for the UCLA Anderson Forecast.

In his look at the current situation and the years ahead, released today as part of the forecast’s quarterly report, Shulman sees gloom despite all those spring shoots.”

A surprise to us here at Mad As Hell And…? No, not at all since we know first-hand that it is TWO TO THREE times more expensive to run a manufacturing or assembly plant in California than it costs in at least 20 other U.S. states (paying the same or higher wages and with the same health benefits) and that is assuming you can even get a new manufacturing or assembly plant open in the Broken State because if it is not deemed a “green” factory the California state and local government bureaucracy will wage an All-Out an Direct War on your plans to build that new plant even if it would create 1000s of temporary construction and permanent manufacturing jobs.

Another story about the Broken State of California that caught our eyes this morning was by the Bay Citizen which details the reality of the high cost of living and running a business in the San Francisco Bay Area which is causing….

Bay Area Residents Leaving in Droves, Aaron Glantz, Bay Citizen

“More people are leaving the Bay Area than moving here from other locations in the United States, according to newly released data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

If it weren’t for a steady influx of people moving to the region each year from other countries, the Bay Area’s population would be in decline, the data show.

Approximately 400,000 local residents move out of the Bay Area every year between 2005 and 2009, while just 345,000 people moved here from other parts of the country — a loss of about 55,000 residents annually. But about 71,000 people moved to the Bay Area from other nations during each of those years, contributing to the region’s population growth.”

As the chart from the Bay Citizen article shows without foreign immigration the San Francisco Bay Area would have a net loss in people over the past 6 years and that is a stunning reversal from the past 50 years when Americans by the Millions flowed into California to find good paying jobs that were being created by the bushel…..BUT…that was of course before the Wacko Liberal Nuts took over Sacramento who now wage a Daily, Direct and All-Our War on Business and laugh about their Direct and All-out War on Business over lunch at Sacramento restaurants (which we have heard them laughing about on many occasions) and often laugh about the “little people” with “little people” being hard-working Californians that are having their lives destroyed by people like Jerry “Yes, my sister worked for Goldman Sachs for years” Brown.

Of course, this is very personal because there are many of us here at Mad As Hell And… that were born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area that later started families and businesses either in San Francisco or in most of the counties surrounding the Bay and it was the policies enacted by the Wacko Liberal Nuts in the now Broken State beginning in the mid-1990s that drove us out of California to about 10 other states across America where we now raise our families and run our businesses in places where the state and local governments actually want and appreciate our efforts to make where we now live a better place for all.

The really pitiful thing about California….the California K-12 school system is so bad and has moved so far from actually educating the children that they are now turning out lots of Morons that are not only dysfunctional and borderline illiterate they are also apathetic about politics and government which almost insures that California will continue to be led by the Biggest Collection of Idiots that have ever held elective office going back to when Man and Woman first emerged from Africa into Europe which most scientists peg at about 170,000 years ago!

Mad As Hell And… Quotes of the Day – Saturday, March 31, 2012 – James Naismith

“Be strong in body, clean in mind, lofty in ideals.”


“I am sure that no man can derive more pleasure from money or power than I do from seeing a pair of basketball goals in some out of the way place.”


“Basketball is a team game demanding a high degree of accuracy, judgment, individual skill, initiative, self-control and the spirit of cooperation. It demands that each player be skilled in all phases of the game, thus developing allround rather than highly specialized ability. Since the object of the game is to have the players of one team the ball into their own basket and to prevent the opponents from putting it in the other basket, it is frequently necessary for one player to pass the ball to another in order to keep possession of it until a favorable opportunity to make a goal occurs.”

We Don’t Have A Clue If “Obamacare” Is Legal Under the U.S. Constitution or Not…..BUT We Do Know That the Cost of Health Care Insurance Is Still Going Straight Up At A Rate of 7 to 8 Percent Per Year And It Has Been Going Up At That Rate For Over A Decade Now – If Obamacare Does NOTHING About Reducing the Cost of Health Care and Thus Health Care Insurance In America What Can Be Done Then….Answer: NOTHING Can Be Done So As Health Care Costs Continue To Go Up…..The Take-Home Income of Americans Will Continue To Go Down Just As It Has for A Couple of Decades Now

We are not going to claim that we have a clue or not if “Obamacare” is legal under the U.S. Constitution’s Commerce Clause that gives the Federal Government the right to regulate commerce among the states….

Justices meet Friday to vote on health care case, Mark Sherman, AP

….but there is ONE thing we are Very Damn Sure about and that is that health care insurance costs for ourselves and our employees keeps going straight-up and as US Senator Tom Coburn from Oklahoma has been telling anyone that will listen that…

Obamacare does NOTHING about the rising cost of health care and health insurance in America.

Over the past decade the cost of our and our employees health care insurance has increased by an average of….

7 to 8 percent PER YEAR!

…which is of course right in line with the REAL inflation rate in America over the past decade as opposed to the Propaganda that is put out on inflation by the U.S. Government….but we digress….and which just raises the cost of everything we manufacture and yet….

Obamacare does NOTHING about the rising cost of health care and health insurance in America.

Here are a few of the UGLY FACTS about the cost of healthcare in America from the Council on Foreign Relations that OUR Government is doing nothing about…

Healthcare Costs and U.S. Competitiveness, Toni Johnson, CFR.com

“The United States spends an estimated $2 trillion annually on healthcare expenses, more than any other industrialized country. According to data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the United States spends two-and-a-half times more than the OECD average, and yet ranks with Turkey and Mexico as the only OECD countries without universal health coverage. Some analysts say an increasing number of U.S. businesses are less competitive globally because of ballooning healthcare costs. U.S. economic woes have heightened the burden of healthcare costs both on individuals and businesses.”


“The United States spent more than 17 percent of its GDP on health care, higher than any other developed nation. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated in 2008 that number would rise to 25 percent by 2025 without changes to federal law (PDF). Employer-funded coverage is the structural mainstay of the U.S. health insurance system. A November 2008 Kaiser Foundation report says access to employer-sponsored health insurance has been on the decline (PDF) among low-income workers, and health premiums for workers have risen 114 percent in the last decade (PDF). Small businesses are less likely than large employers to be able to provide health insurance as a benefit. At 12 percent, health care is the most expensive benefit paid by U.S. employers, according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.”


“The healthcare reform legislation passed by Congress largely focuses on decreasing the number of uninsured–projections estimate a reduction by about 60 percent, but it is less clear how much these reforms would affect the U.S. economy. Overall, the new law would produce close to $1 trillion in new government spending. Although the CBO found that the final law would reduce the federal deficit (PDF) by as much $138 billion by 2019, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a U.S. government agency, also found that the legislation would do little to stem the rise in healthcare expenditures–expected to increase to more than 20 percent of GDP in the next decade.”

AND the REALITY about health care costs and the rising cost of health care insurance for companies in America:

“Many company officials say a wasteful public-private system is pushing costs much higher than they should be. Jeffrey Rideout, a medical doctor and former head of the Internet Business Solutions Group at Cisco Systems’ Healthcare Practice, says the amount businesses pay for employee insurance is just one element of their total healthcare costs. Rideout says businesses incur a “triple tax.” First, they pay for insurance programs through health benefits. Second, businesses indirectly subsidize Medicare and Medicaid, the federally supported programs for primarily poor and elderly Americans.

Businesses pay higher insurance premiums to make up for the fact that Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements often do not match the total costs hospitals incur treating these patients–a “hidden tax”. Third, Rideout says, businesses also subsidize the strain on the system wrought by the cost of treating America’s uninsured, again through higher insurance premiums.”

Geez, these rising health care costs are worse than we thought!

What then can be done to attack the REAL problem which is rising health care costs that is driving up the cost of health care insurance and thus the cost of doing business in America?

No, shipping jobs to China like Apple has done to have young people in China working at what we consider slave wages is not the answer unless of course you don’t give a Damn about the American Republic or American People which in our opinion the executives of Apple could care less about anything but their own precious asses and if the Chinese are willing to work their asses off in terrible conditions for next to nothing what do the execs at Apple care? At least they won’t have to pay for rising health care costs for the people that make all of those Apple products in China which interestingly lots of Wacko Liberal Nuts just love to purchase which makes one wonder how anyone that was REALLY a Liberal could buy an Apple IPad or IPhone…BUT then most of us know that so-called “Liberals” are “Liberals” in name only and if they really want a product made with slave wage labor they will buy that product!

See on Apple….Foxconn Auditor Finds “Serious” Violations of Chinese Law, Bloomberg.com

Getting back to the subject at hand since Obamacare does….

NOTHING about the rising cost of health care and health insurance in America.

….which means that the Supreme Court’s decision on whether Obamacare is legal or not means NOTHING to most American businesses what then can be done to slow down the rise of the cost of health care and thus health care insurance in America?

Answer: NOTHING can or will be done to slow down the cost of health care in America and thus NO MATTER what the Supreme Court decides on Obamacare the cost of health care and health care insurance will continue to go straight up and if one is actually a REAL American and thus actually give a Damn about America and the American People and you are not going to move jobs to China that ultimately means ONE thing and ONE thing only:

As the cost of health care insurance continues to rise….

7 to 8 percent per year

….the cost of doing business and thus the cost of the products we make will continue to rise as well which means the rising cost of health insurance will eat into the future raises for ALL Americans and reduce their take-home income as well which makes the last two Damn years debating Obamacare up to and including the Supreme Court case which will decide if the law is even Constitutional or not nothing more than a…..

Big waste of everyone’s time and effort and actually has meant….BUMPKUS to 90 plus percent of the American People.

Here’s a thought: How about the folks in Washington DC going to work on a bill that will actually have as its goal….

Slowing down the skyrocketing cost of health care in America!

Oh….only intelligent human beings could do something like that and the precious asses of America’s “Elected Leaders” are too busy trying to figure out the latest angle that will get them re-elected so they can spent more time figuring another angle that will get their precious asses re-elected again?

Yea…that’s about right.

From the Only A Country Run By Morons, Idiots and Fools File…..You Say the Pentagon May Be Putting Chinese Electronics Into Products Used By Our U.S. Military To Fight Wars That Could Have Viruses or Malfunction During Battle? – Oh, That’s Just Great!…..NOT! – Richard Clarke With Another Warning To America…..Just Like His Warning Before the Attack on 9/11….But More Than Likely The Morons, Idiots and Fools in Washington DC Are Asleep at the Switch Again

From the….

Only a country run by Morons, Idiots and Fools would off-shore the critical parts they buy for their military to a country that anyone with a lick of Common Sense would not trust to watch their dogs File

….we have Robert Johnson over at Business Insider passing along the words of Richard Clarke about the possibility that China may be intentionally sabotaging the electronics that they are selling to the Pentagon which are going into products used by the U.S. military to fight wars.

Oh, isn’t that special?

Who is Richard Clarke you say?

Richard Clarke is the former Clinton and W. Bush National Security Council Member who warned W’s national security team in early 2001 that Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden posed a grave danger to the United States of America….here is an excerpt from Wikipedia on what Richard Clarke told W. Bush officials in 2001 before the 9/11 attack:

“Clarke’s role as a counter-terrorism advisor in the months and years prior to 9/11 would lead to the central role he played in deconstructing what went wrong in the years that followed. Clarke and his communications with the Bush administration regarding bin Laden and associated terrorist plots targeting the United States were mentioned frequently in Condoleezza Rice’s public interview by the 9/11 investigatory commission on April 8, 2004. Of particular significance was a memo from January 25, 2001, that Clarke had authored and sent to Rice. Along with making an urgent request for a meeting of the National Security Council’s Principals Committee to discuss the growing al-Qaeda threat in the greater Middle East, the memo also suggests strategies for combating al-Qaeda that might be adopted by the new Bush administration.

In his memoir, “Against All Enemies”, Clarke wrote that when he first briefed Rice on Al-Qaeda, in a January 2001 meeting, “her facial expression gave me the impression she had never heard the term before.” He also stated that Rice made a decision that the position of National Coordinator for Counterterrorism should be downgraded. By demoting the office, the Administration sent a signal through the national security bureaucracy about the salience they assigned to terrorism. No longer would Clarke’s memos go to the President; instead they had to pass though a chain of command of National Security Advisor Rice and her deputy Stephen Hadley, who bounced every one of them back.

Within a week of the inauguration, I wrote to Rice and Hadley asking ‘urgently’ for a Principals, or Cabinet-level, meeting to review the imminent Al-Qaeda threat. Rice told me that the Principals Committee, which had been the first venue for terrorism policy discussions in the Clinton administration, would not address the issue until it had been ‘framed’ by the Deputies.

At the first Deputies Committee meeting on Terrorism held in April 2001, Clarke strongly suggested that the U.S. put pressure on both the Taliban and Al-Qaeda by arming the Northern Alliance and other groups in Afghanistan. Simultaneously, that they target bin Laden and his leadership by reinitiating flights of the MQ-1 Predators. To which Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz responded, “Well, I just don’t understand why we are beginning by talking about this one man bin Laden.” Clarke replied that he was talking about bin Laden and his network because it posed “an immediate and serious threat to the United States.” According to Clarke, Wolfowitz turned to him and said, “You give bin Laden too much credit. He could not do all these things like the 1993 attack on New York, not without a state sponsor.”

Oh, W. Bush Pentagon staffer Paul Wolfowitz wrong about something like the threat that Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden posed to America and the American People? Please, Paul Wolfowitz being wrong about something is like saying the Sun comes up every morning since Wolfowitz is wrong about 99 percent of the time that his mouth is open which is sadly often the case for most of the long-time foreign policy hacks in Washington DC and New York that have done NOTHING in their lives but sit on their precious asses in….Washington DC and New York!

Getting back to Robert Johnson’s piece at Business Insider on Richard Clarke’s warning about the Chinese….

Former Pentagon Official Says All Chinese Electronics In the US Could Have Built-In Trapdoors, Business Insider

“Clarke, like the rest of the world, knows China is sending compromised electronics to the U.S. by the boatload, to be used in military vehicles from submarines to fighter jets, and that many of them are poor quality, counterfeit, and worthless, but he thinks they hold another secret.

He believes the Chinese, already known for their industrial espionage, and electronic subterfuge, have built “logic bombs,” “Trojan horses,” and trapdoors into all manner of electronic components that could be activated at a moments notice, sending a digital apocalypse to the U.S. military with a few simple keystrokes.

The following excerpt from Smithsonian, and cited by John Reed over at DefenseTech, illustrates the specifics of Clarke’s concern:

“My greatest fear,” Clarke says, “is that, rather than having a cyber-Pearl Harbor event, we will instead have this death of a thousand cuts. Where we lose our competitiveness by having all of our research and development stolen by the Chinese. And we never really see the single event that makes us do something about it. That it’s always just below our pain threshold. That company after company in the United States spends millions, hundreds of millions, in some cases billions of dollars on R&D and that information goes free to China….After a while you can’t compete.”

But Clarke’s concerns reach beyond the cost of lost intellectual property. He foresees the loss of military power. Say there was another confrontation, such as the one in 1996 when President Clinton rushed two carrier battle fleets to the Taiwan Strait to warn China against an invasion of Taiwan. Clarke, who says there have been war games on precisely such a revived confrontation, now believes that we might be forced to give up playing such a role for fear that our carrier group defenses could be blinded and paralyzed by Chinese cyberintervention. (He cites a recent war game published in an influential military strategy journal called Orbis titled “How the U.S. Lost the Naval War of 2015.”)

That 1995 show of force in the Taiwan Strait was the single largest display of U.S. military power in the region since the Vietnam War .
Today, with the U.S. pivoting back to the region after a decade of war in the Middle East, it faces an incredibly wealthy China that’s spending heavily on an extensive military force.

So while it may seem like Clarke could just be trying to drum up business, the question remains why wouldn’t China do this to give itself the advantage in a face-off with the U.S. military?”

Oh, so the U.S. military could be putting hundreds of thousands of electronic parts that they buy from China into products that our military uses to fight wars and those parts could have all kinds of viruses in them that could malfunction at any time?

That’s just perfect but then when one realizes that most of these folks in Washington DC can’t add 2 + 2 the idea that the Pentagon is buying Crapola and compromised electronics from China should be no big surprise because there are plenty of people in Washington DC that also live in the Absolute Fantasyland that China is an ally of the United States of America when nothing could be farther from the TRUTH.
