So not entirely an add, but some girl posted this (she frequents some anti-Obama site and posts tons of this bull****)

So just heard that a plane that was flying back all the votes from Army men overseas; someone blew it up. Somehow they knew that 79% was for Romney. IF this is true than sounds like to me, Obama wants back in office REALLY bad. Not saying it's true but IF it is than he had to have killed the man flying that plane also. So the count of Americans he has killed has now jumped to 5. What a FANTASTIC President. If Obama wins, ONLY God can help us, buckle up people! Things are going to change dramatically!
Gotta love it.

Of all the holders of U.S. debt China is the third-largest, behind only the Social Security Trust Fund's holdings of nearly $3 trillion and the Federal Reserve's nearly $2 trillion holdings in Treasury investments, purchased as part of its quantitative easing program to boost the economy. In total, China owns only 7.6 percent of publicly held U.S. debt.

Quit using logic. The idea of a billion Chinese cracking their knuckles and asking for their cash is so much more fun.

I think the more likely scenario is american citizens demanding their cash.

Irrelevant details. All that matters is that it can be framed to support my simple minded position.
