Chinese Trojan Horses and Heads or Tails?

China’s Premier Warns Obama to Get America’s Deficit to an “Appropriate Size”

Aren’t Walmart, Target, and all the other retailers, 99% of whose merchandise is made in China, Chinese Trojan horses?

When I equipped my apartment in Philadelphia a few years ago, virtually everything I purchased was made in China, except the china, which was made in USA.

Check out Deuteronomy 28: 12-13: You will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow. The Lord will make you the head and not the tail: you shall be only at the top and not the bottom. (This same idea comes up in 28: 44 again.) So the creditor nation (China) becomes the head of the dog and the debtor (The U.S.A.) becomes the tail, meaning that the dog is going to wag the tail and the the tail is not going to wag the dog.

This post is about becoming indebted to China, but the same holds true for the debtor class in America. Going into debt makes us the tail of our society, while the creditors become the head of the dog.  The tail can’t wag the dog.
