    Whatever. It depends whether you want to figure up or down for the percentage. I originally said "more than a 10% drop" to avoid the stupid argument over whether the devaluation from .16 to .14 was 12.5% or 14% because I wasn't sure which was right. SPG said check your math so I showed him one way of figuring it. Bottom line, it was more than a 10% drop either way.

    Get a job. .125 is not the percentage. You can figure it up or down it depends on how you look at it. 16/14= 1.14 or a 14% difference or you can take 14/16= .875 so the change is 12.5 percent. Is this a big deal to you?

    There's no saving Hong Kong. It's China's. All the good wishes in the world won't make an ounce of difference. The only question is how many protesters will the Communists have to kill, to squash these protests? It's sad, but Hong Kong has never been under to protection of the US, the US didn't broker the deal to hand it back to China & I see no possible upside to making a statement in support of them, or condemning China on this issue.
    Cool. So we side with the totalitarian communist government and hope it works out well for them.

    Hong Kong is the last stand. Thatís why Hong Kong. Itís the most pure form of capitalism on the planet. Itís a constant reminder to the socialists that capitalism is a superior economic model. A tiny island with no resources is a global economic super power purely because of capitalism. And resource rich socialist countries like Venezuela are starving and eating out of dumpsters.

    Iím not asking for military intervention. We should support Hong Kong. Boycott China. Put pressure on them.
