I didn't think so.
I offer a clarification of my earlier post.

US Treasury debt is still strong investment grade, so I doubt China is sweating getting its 1.2 trillion repaid. What China DOES get, as their US paper rolls over, is an extra 1/4 to 1/2 percent APR on their reinvested money. Even a minor interest rate increase really adds up when the base amount is a trillion plus. China gets to count additional income; we get to pay it. If Mao Zedong is anywhere where he can track what is going on, he would kick himself for not taking China's economy on its current private enterprise shtick when HE was running things!

I ask forgiveness for my breach of protocol in making consecutive posts, but an important administrative issue must be addressed.

It has become my honor to be monkey-DNA poster on two consecutive pages. This, of course, is desirable for ME, but in this instance it creates complications. I am coming off (in a matter of speaking) two Chamber sessions, one for the LAST monkey-page spot and one for my temerity in correcting Twee-Twee's pronoun usage. Such a double punishment session is sufficient in the short run for any reasonable 10-Ringer (pardon my inconsistency). I therefore wish to announce that THIS Chamber punishment session will be deferred and, if necessary, be redirected to a needy 10-Ringer of Twee-Twee's choosing. So start sucking up to HER, cappishe?!

Seeing how Love means nothing in Tennis as said before, then not having to say I'm sorry would also mean nothing...Therefore the reason for It has to mean something!

Your post is incoherent, but it lacks the marvelously incoherent status needed to achieve the upper echelons of 10-Ring incoherency. We believe you may have made the classic mistake of posting to this thread while sober. We suggest that, if our theory is correct, you remedy this condition.

An alternative option ... We offer to pay them in never-fired 10mm brass ... They would JUMP at that offer!

Rabbi, I don't want to PAY them off, I want to RIP them off !(and get our 38% in the deal)
Payback for all of the crap they send here !

And if China stopped expporting junk, they'rd be FEWER of the species known on the internet as "Walmartians". The extinction of them as a species would be a GOOD thing !

I mean, Geesie doesn't shop at Walmart, so WHY do we need them ?

Important detail: the standard embezzlement rate is 39%, not 38%. The last time the rate was that low was when Twee-Twee asked me in a particularly convincing manner.

Walmart DOES have its uses. It gives the common-rabble-9-and-40-crowd something to occupy its time, thus freeing up the exalted 10-Ring faithful for more worthy shopping effort.

That's because Walmart sells plenty of 9 & 40 but it doesn't sell 10mm ammo, therefore 10-Ring need not bother!

Remember: If ANYBODY could become a 10-Ringer, then nobody worthwhile would WANT to be a 10-Ringer!

On a contrary note, I offer the classic Groucho Marx statement: I wouldn't want to join any club that would accept me as a member!

Attitude can be an inclusive exclusion.

Hmmmmm ... an interesting possibility ... Perhaps I underestimated Twee-Twee's administrative finesse. Perhaps the intensive bombastic shopping trips she undertakes all the time are just a cover for subtly nuanced behind-the-scenes manipulation of the proclivities of the easily-influenced 10-Ring mentality (pardon my redundancy). Damn! Now I may have to rethink my entire outlook on life, reality, the universe, and everything. Bring my limo around ... Whoops! ... I mean, get my Yugo fixed and ready for me to drive myself down to tonight's Lagoon blowout ... Whoops again! ... to the Dungeon Historical Research Division Facility, so that I may further investigate this possible situation.

Gracefully phrased. Just the right touch of condescension toward the common rabble, but avoiding open contempt for them.
