All this debate about Communism vs Capitalism and which is better, has been a topic on the CD.
So lets (try to) keep it simple......
Are things in China getting better or worse? (The Communist King)
Is America getting better or worse? (The Capitalist Champion)

I lived in China from 2008-2015.
Saw how much cheaper and easier to live there.
During my whole time there, prices were the same.
Opon my return to Hawaii, USA in 2015 I saw way more homeless than EVER before.
Prices for food has gone way up.
Example:
Bowl of noodles w/dumplings $9       China $2
Peaches $2.50 lb                             China  $1 kilo
Green onions $2 a bunch                  China $.30 lb
Cigarettes $8.50                              China $1.25
Rent for 1 br apt. $1,800 mo             China $1,200 a YEAR!
Talk about sticker shock

Since I came back to America....
Most mass shootings I can rememper.
More racial hate, than ever before.
Wages are the same.

From my arm chair....
It sure looks like things have gotten way worse in the US.

It is as "plain as day" to see how the US is degrading.
Very little focus on the plight of working class Americans.
Wealth holds up the markets.

The War is a rather recent one...

  One man can not run America, it's the hate among the the two parties.

China seen the light at the end of the tunnel and did the right thing...
The two parties fight their own people, one within its own borders, the other; the warring Party is fighting in foreign Countries.
  Modern History never came across such retardation, insulting the majority of their own people for a profitable few.

By setting the wrong priorities in his agenda, Trump is helping to finish off his own country super fast.

All that he is doing is like a drowning man with his head still submerged under water struggling to raise his Rolex watch.

Just look at his recent plan to split and branch the Air Force into a far more expensive Space Force over the objection of many seasoned military experts.

That is the sign of a fool and not that of a rich, Rolex-wearing man.

You are comparing Hawaii with a third or fourth (?) tier city in China and are shocked ... no ... SHOCKED!! ... that prices are so much more expensive??

$100 a month rent is what you would have paid in a 2nd tier city for a barely habitable studio apartment back in 2001. Where were you living ... in a yurt in Mongolia?

From 2008 to 2015 ... prices in China were the same? I can only assume you never went to the market to buy pork, chicken or most basic foodstuffs because that statement is just plain wrong ...

Could you come up with a more biased comparative if you tried? Gee ....
