Can I buy yuan-denominated CDs? No, because I'm not Chinese?

As long as they keep the Americanized Shiatty Wok I'm okay with this

So this is how it happens. Not with the thunder of armed weapons, but with the scratch of a pen.

Meh, at least they won't get free bailouts. I'm not going to use them but I'm also the type to buy american cars and computers

Isn't anyone else worried about Chinese banks, who are owned by the Chinese government, who sets the value of the Yuan, also owning American banks? This seems like a terrible deal for us and a fantastic deal for China.

No. A Chinese owned bank in the US still gets regulated by the Fed. It's far more likely the Chinese get screwed.

/ this is how WW3 begins, though . ;-(

They absolutely do get US bailouts if they fark up - if the alternative is millions of US voters losing their homes/ savings...

I can't always tell the difference between hysterical ignorance and people making jokes.

Should I be disappointed or amused?

They just need to go pee pee in all the free toasters they'll give us when we open up accounts.

Subby I will have you know that "sh*ty bank" was bought out by PNC years ago, and thus does not exist.

I hate to break it to you, but there aren't any computers made in America. China pretty much has a monopoly on the rare-earth metals that are needed to make things like processors, motherboards, and hard drives. The only part of you computer that might have been made in America is the case. The same thing goes for just about any consumer electronics.

Ok, who forgot to play the national security card on the country that should automatically be objected on national security grounds?

Taking out a large company by hacking into them (Nortel)? China.
Committing espionage on private and public sector entities in the United States? China as well.
Killing a world-class computer company by a thousand cuts (Lenovo)? Yup, China.

I'd hate to have to say it, but the Chinese are not our friends nor should they (or their business-world enablers) be treated any better than the current GITMO residents.

Yes, and I am worried that it's getting no scrutiny at all for national security grounds.

The only good action would be to nationalize the banks, remove the Chinese influence, then privatize as dollar-trading US banks.

Not if the Fed is under Chinese control, as evidenced by this action.

The three that approved the deal have committed treason - by aiding and abetting a foreign country that has caused harm to the US - along with every business that has helped China at the expense of the US.

Opposing China != unreasonable. I like my country and wish not to have to see it sold out to the highest bidder.

I don't know, but I'd like to know what Chinese-backed entities finance opinion guiding - like the 50 Mao Party that consists of people paid to back the CPC sanctioned opinion.
