It's sad to you because you're from an insignificant country and have done nothing with your life but play the race card and claim you've been held back by "the man".

You missed the point Papa Bear. It is sad because all the stuff that the professor alludes to (the rationale for America's demise)

-government stimulus spending
-massive health care systems
-government in bed with big business

are SOP in China and recently have been crucial parts of China's anti-recession policy.

The whole premise of the ad is contradictory.

But it will probably rile up the sheep.

Commies laughing at the US for failing due to becoming socialist.



If only right wing blowhards could grasp the concept of irony.

the ad would've been more poignant to focus on the opposing chinese and american foreign policies - one using prudent and stealthy economic investment to become an international powerhouse and the other using its international powerhouse status to pursue unpopular military campaigns. though i guess that wouldn't exactly send the same message.
