Since China owns us, Confucius says this about Biden's visit: Ignorance is the night of the mind, but a night without moon and star

Since China is our largest foreign creditor, holding more than a trillion dollars in U.S. debt, and already is miffed at our failure to cut our deficit, you don’t need a fortune cookie to get the message that the Chinese have us by the egg rolls.
So why in God’s name did we send Joe Biden to China? At least our vice president didn’t arrive at the Beijing airport today with his foot in his mouth. But just give him time. I’m praying that Biden only opens his mouth to stick chopsticks in it. The mind recoils at what damage this gaffe machine can do to already strained tensions. Like snap them like Oprah’s girdle.
The only thing that might spare us from disaster is that the Chinese won’t devote the whole trip to grilling the Veep on why we’re so bankrupt on economic issues.
They are using this trip to roll out the red carpet for Biden (here’s hoping his tongue doesn’t trip over it) so Washington in turn gives a warm reception to Chinese vice president and heir apparent Xi Jinping this fall.
For some reason that defies logic, the Chinese view visits to the U.S. as coming out parties for their heir apparents (or is it heirs apparent?), giving them something in common with illegal aliens who then opt to stick around forever.
Granted, Biden won’t have to mind his Ps and Qs around Xi Jinping this visit because the Chinese don’t use the same alphabet. So at least we’ve got that going for us.
