It's that pesky little issue we Americans have as a result of the 24-hour news cycle that constantly bombards us with negativity about the opposition.

Americans Betray Their Country For China

In a recent survey conducted by Pew Research, 47% of Americans said they believe that China is the world's greatest economic power. This is so completely disturbing to me, especially considering that most Americans have no idea about the economics of China. They are simply listening to what the "lame-stream" media tell them and they're sucking it all in like a fat ...
