$1MM dollars, right into GM's near empty coffers...

GM stock, currently trading at around $21, reportedly has to get to around $55, just for the U.S. taxpayers to BREAK EVEN.

So expect plenty of TM-bashing in the days and months ahead.

Once read: "In America, communication is a 'competition' in which the first person to draw a breath is declared the loser..."

However, one trait that I have found "Americans" here in America seem to greatly respect and have adapted, is to not wear shoes inside one's home.

An American buddy of mine used to live in Japan and now lives and works in Shanghai said to me, "A newcomer to Japan quickly realizes that he/she is a 'Gaijin', but a newcomer to China quickly realizes that he/she is a 'Walking ATM'..."

Stealing is a fact of life with Chinese - go to Chinese take-out restaurants in many places in the U.S. - note that they NEVER give you receipts (unless you ask) because they actually nickel and dime you with the assumption that you won't bother to check the correct cost. I found this occurring in establishments in Vermont, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and even in Oregon.

Also, look into the blatant theft that the Chinese have perpetrated in Myanmar the last 20 years.

"so tell me about Rush, I see them looking like every day people"

You are aware that Rush once opened for KISS, right?

Mr. Simmons is referring to NEW contemporary artists, not those who made their bones back in the day but are still performing.

"China wants to be treated with respect around the world??"

Really? China first and foremost wants to secure as many natural resources as it possibly can (a la CNOOC buying Nexen and SINOPEC getting into a project in Texas, among others). Respect is far down on the list of needs.

So long as the Japanese continue to buy, from the U.S., enormous amounts of corn, soybeans, and wheat, at record high prices, the U.S. will continue to happily scratch Japan's back.

I know quite a few American dudes who prefer Japanese "imbeciles" (though they are not really dumb) to demanding, quasi-intelligent, stuck up, overweight, slutty, foul-mouthed American "women".
