What Happens When The Slaves Quit

October 9, 2013

Interesting predictament …:::  Young Chinese Workers Don’t Want To Work In Factories Anymore.

“Broadly speaking, this is a good thing for most Chinese, but for the country as a whole it’s a major shift, and it’s happening very quickly. The big question is whether it will be able to adapt soon enough.”

China is a communist country, so do the people have any choice?


It Doesn’t Mean What It Sounds Like Anymore

July 18, 2013

From the functionally illiterate to my ears … With a 3.0 GPA … Which apparently doesn’t mean what it used to, either.

Rush Limbaugh: Thanks To Rachel Jeantel I Can Say ‘Nigga’. Which differs from N**gger. If you use the ‘gga’ word it just means just a male, of any color or race … no racial connotation at all. So ‘white guilt’ can be set free.

It’s the officially approved pronunciation for a male … any male.

Transcript from the Rush Limbaugh website:

CNN informs us via Rachel Jeantel that Trayvon called Rachel and said that he was being followed by a “creepy ass cracka,” which we have now learned is “a person who act like they’re a police, who like, uhhh, security guard…” So then, Piers Morgan, the ever penetrating inquisitor, said, “So was there anything you wished you’d said when you were in there?” meaning as a witness on the stand.

JEANTEL: Nigga!

MORGAN: Why?

JEANTEL: People… The whole world say it’s a racist word. My… My you… Around 2000, that was not… They change it around, I think. It start spelling it n-i-g-g-a. Nigga!

MORGAN: What does that mean to you, that way of spelling it? What does that word mean to you?

JEANTEL: That mean a male.

MORGAN: A black male?

JEANTEL: No! Any kind of male.

MORGAN: Black or white?

JEANTEL: Any kind. Chinese could say, “Nigga!” “That’s my chino nigga.” They can say that.

RUSH: This was between nine and ten p.m. last night on CNN, who are in a quest to become the, again, most respected news organization in the country, perhaps even the world. So “nigga” with an A on the end… (interruption) Well, I think I can now. Isn’t that the point? ‘Cause it’s not racist. That’s the point. I could be talking about “a male.” I could be talking about a Chinese male, a guy at the Laundromat. You could be talking about a man.

That’s what she said it means. (interruption) Hey, new school! New school. (interruption) She IS the authority! This is the point, Snerdley: She is the authority. She was on CNN last night. She was presented as the authority, and the CNN commentators all day today have been wondering why this brilliant woman didn’t show up and say these things on the stand.

 


Chinese Citizens Stormed Government Offices Near Shanghai And Forced The Mayor To Strip

July 28, 2012

Maoists have their own Tea Party ….

Do you remember how the Soviets used to do it? They had walled off towns, and walled dascha in the countryside. Soldiers had their AK-47 outside, to keep the rabble out. Looks like how Obama wants America to look.

But apparently the communist in China weren’t as smart as the Soviets.

The big Chinese news today is out of Qidong, a city of over a million inhabitants one hour north of Shanghai, which has seen widespread protests against an industrial waste pipeline.

Protests in China aren’t rare, but the scale and violence of this protest make it remarkable. Reuters reports that 1,000 protestors marched on government offices, eventually storming and vandalizing them, as well as turning over at least five cars and one minibus.

The video below gives a good idea of the scale of protest.

WATCH:

Oh oh, looks really bad for the Maoists, until they get the tanks gassed up … Apparently the Chinese have figured out the iPhones being built with slave labor is not good for them. They are the slaves, and seem to have figured out what is going on.

According to reports on Weibo, protestors found condoms and expensive liquor in the offices. Pictures posted to Weibo appear to show the local Qidong mayor Sun Jianhua stripped of his shirt. He was reportedly made to wear an opposition t-shirt.

While officially the government has backed down in its plans for the pipeline, the repercussions against the protestors may be tough. There are reports that the internet has been taken down in Qidong, and that hospitals are full of people who have been badly beaten by the police, with reports of some deaths.

Images posted to Weibo appear to show a full on battle between a huge amount of police and a huge amount of protesters.

Keep your powder dry …


Obama Takes Credit, Then Shifts Blame on Solyndra

March 22, 2012

In an interview with Marketplace.org (full audio), President Obama defends using U.S. taxpayer money to invest in solar energy projects. During the interview, Obama was asked about Solyndra, one of the more well-known solar panel companies that failed after receiving a loan guarantee from the Department of Energy.

However, Obama told Marketplace that “this was not our program.” Obama attempts to make the case that this falls on the lap of Congress because they put together the loan guarantee program.

Real Clear Politics posted the transcript.

Marketplace’s Kai Ryssdal : With all respect, it was kind of a gutsy move I think to come to a solar facility. Your administration has staked a lot on clean technology, green jobs. The biggest item most people know about that strategy is, of course, a company named Solyndra, which your administration gave loan guarantees to, that then went bankrupt and has been the subject of many investigations. Are you doing your “all of the above” strategy right if that’s what we have to show for it — Solyndra?

Obama: We are doing the “all of the above” strategy right. Obviously, we wish Solyndra hadn’t gone bankrupt. Part of the reason they did was because the Chinese were subsidizing their solar industry and flooding the market in ways that Solyndra couldn’t compete. But understand: This was not our program, per se.Congress — Democrats and Republicans — put together a loan guarantee program because they understood historically that when you get new industries, it’s easy to raise money for startups, but if you want to take them to scale, oftentimes there’s a lot of risk involved, and what the loan guarantee program was designed to do was to help start up companies get to scale. And the understanding is is that some companies are not going to succeed, some companies will do very well — but the portfolio as a whole ends up supporting the kind of innovation that helps make America successful in this innovative 21st century economy.

Do I wish that Solyndra had gone bankrupt? Absolutely not. And obviously it’s heartbreaking what happened to the workers who were there. When you look at the overall portfolio, is it right for us to make sure that we’re not just cashing in our chips and letting the Chinese or the Germans develop the technologies that we know are going to be critical in the future? I’m proud to say that we’re going to continue to support it.
