Incredible article stating that the West has lost its AAA credit rating (as far as China is concerned). It was just a matter of time before we have to admit the end of our reign as World leaders. I am fine with this and hope that we can gracefully move into our new status and stop getting involved in everything bailing everyone out and sticking our nose in everyone elses business. Now it will be the moral responsibility of the new World Leaders to guide the World. I don't see Canada spending money across the World like we do, nor do I see the terrorist attacks that we have suffered. Now if we can just calm down and try to focus on important things like productivity and education. We have a long way to go in order to catch up!
