I had heard some rumors.......

Ok my dh tells me he heard on a talk radio show based on politics and current events, that the US has been loan/giving money to China. WTF? Do u think this could be true?? He also said he heard on the same show that the US has possibly could be sending $ to counties that are not really considered our enemy, but we are not close buds either. What are the odds these rumors could be true?? Anybody?

  • I know I know......It just sucks. The US has built uo soooo much debt, even more so after Obama became president. I jiust get so annoyed thinking of our recent severe storms almost wiping a few towns off the maP, other citizens need to build either an ark, or build a house boat, or simply having to leave their homes. Or other states are getting out the s'mores and having a sing along around the very huge camp fire!! Where is the counties that we helped out??

  • Actually we've borrowed a ton of money from china so if we are giving them any its part of the pay back process

  • Where China is concerned, we'd be paying back what we borrowed. As for other countries, we've been sending billions to other countries (it's called foreign aide) for decades.

  • True, true , true to all!!
    That is why there will be unrest, because as people wake up they will be very angry to see where our money has been going, and not a damn thing is being done for us here!!

  • I saw something like this on Fox news. They were saying we are sending millions to one of the countries in S.A. (I can't remember which one) and they owe us $20 million. The point was, why don't we stop sending them aid, and that money we weren't sending could be applied to the money owed us.

    Same thing with China.

  • Ya know its called foreign aid, but it sucks cause our county is bordering on another recession, food supply may get a little more difficult cause of the droughts, the fires, the floods, the tornados ect. Sorry I know I bitching about something that none of us can control and it stinks.
