So, printing money/QE isn't currency manipulation?

I seriously doubt that. For the foreseeable future oil is here to stay. Where would you charge an electric car after if the charge runs out? Besides, even though its my country, I'll be one of the first to admit that America can't manufacture in terms of quality that Japan or South Korea can.

Why do I imagine Trump meeting the Queen of England being something along the lines of, "This is America!!!"

Might as well put a solar panel wherever surface possible. Every little bit of extra power generation helps. However, I do agree that high winds or a typhoon could turn the solar panels into shrapnel.

That's the thing about politics, on both sides. I hate when people running for office charge up the base like this. Americans are ignorant of many things, including our own Government. Too many people here think the President has absolute power. Most of the stuff Trump or Clinton proposes will simply be blamed on the "other" party if said proposals fail.

Trump is saying whatever he can to get votes. That's how Democracy works. The person with the most believable load of crap wins. Trump's running mate is either going to be his ego or his toupee.

Yeah, believe the nonsense and hype. Aging societies are a lie invented by politicians as an excuse to let in cheap foreign labor.

40 million people on food stamps isn't a recovery. The schools in my area are allowing students to take cafeteria food home because their families can't afford food. Our demographics are in the toilet. 80% of the people I see are past retirement age. The American dream has become a nightmare.

Alex80, let me fix your statement: "The AMERICAN economy is broken." Germany, Russia, Italy and Japan have been putting out false data for decades in order to look weaker. Why? Because every time another country does well Americans throw temper tantrums.
Japan fixed my broken body, gave me a life and a well-paying job. I don't care if there debt hits 999% of whatever useless metric their propaganda uses. I owe them my heart and soul, which they already have.
