    China’s middle class is prospering thanks to us. Too bad our politicians are not as concerned about the welfare of America’s middle class as they are the Chinese’s. We had better turn “free’ trade into fair trade and do something about that pesky $350 billion trade deficit while we still have one American left with a decent job. Or we could just keep trudging down to Wally World and compounding the problem. The choice is ours, not the Chinese.

    Reality is a harsh mistress. She insists that you pay attention and then, having done so, take care of business. Politics, on the other hand, is more like a slick stage show performed by lawyers, shills,  and others that have mastered the art of the sham. The promoters in the fancy suits are always trying to divert your attention in order to secure your favor to engage in acts that challenge your better judgement. The world has run out of real currency, that is credible money of the type that represents collaterized real wealth, and yet is awash in paper representations of squishy debt. Culter and his kind who caused and benefitted from the last magnificent swindle continue to prowl for easy targets for the next take down.

      Interesting comments so far.  Seems like Cutler was trying to develop markets for US and Maine products and services, not the other way around.  Both he and the BDN are suggesting continuing these marketing developments.  I also recall trade expeditions to China by Baldacci and others a couple of years ago.  These policies are forwrd looking and not dwelling glumly (with much finger pointing) in the past.
