Cozy With The ChiComs

Rock on, Georgia!

eorgia will open an office in Beijing to promote trade, and state officials say they are optimistic that China will choose Atlanta as the site for a new consulate.

Speaking at a press conference in downtown Beijing, Craig Lesser, commissioner of the Georgia department of economic development, said Georgia will open the trade office early next year. He added officials will continue to lobby the Chinese government to build a consulate in Atlanta, though no decision had been made by Beijing about timing or location.

Let’s just not forget that the Chicoms are a murderous, repressive regime that forces women to have abortions and murders Christian missionaries — kind of like ChimpyMcBushitler’s America, but for real.

    Amen Erick… I’m sickened by our constant praise of this still communist regime. Doesn’t everyone realize that for every dollar spent with this government, 75 cents goes directly to building up their military.

    Good point, I think Mark Taylor should come out and state that he is going to do everything in his power so that Georgia does not trade with one of the largest economies in the world.

    I’m confused. I thought spreading free market principles across the world was part of our national mission or something. What is the GOP policy on spreading free market ideas to China, anyway? All I know is that Commie-loving red bastard Nixon went over there first. What a pussy!

    The problem is China is heavy into gold. They are protected both ways in dealing with America. Dollar goes down due to our debt, gold goes up.We will see interest rate, fuel and building cost keep going up. Income will not keep up with prices.

    We need a plan B on trade and spending or this is not good news.That is why Buffet is betting against the dollar.

    Bart that is Warren Buffet not Jimmy.

    John,
    All I know is that my schezuan shrimp used to come with a complimentary egg roll, and not it doesn’t anymore. Is that kind of what you’re talking about? Cause that’s a trade imbalance in their favor if you ask me.

  6. RiverRat says:

    Konop, perhaps you missed the sarcasm in my post. Perhaps this will be clearer: regardless of the validity of any particular trade policy with China, the GOP criticism of this trade policy is hypocrtical. To advocate that the spreading of free market ideology is essential to ensuring freedom both in America and abroad, and to then criticize when we try to bring said ideology to other countries because they are Communist… that is the definition of hypocrisy.

    Either a) spreading free market ideas is beneficial, in which case we SHOULD be going after trade with China because it will effectuate the eventual collapse of their regime; or b) spreading free market ideas really only gives money to our enemies, and we should definately not trade with them. Which is it guys?

    RR,

    You are right. My only point is both parties supported this policy. We have spread the same logic to the Middle east, which has only created more problems.

    We have no standards in our trade deals in terms of child and slave labor. And then we wonder why the workers are upset.

    From the LA Times

    The factories have engaged in the worst kinds of human rights and worker abuses, including 48-hour shifts without sleep, violent physical and psychological abuse and workers brought from foreign countries with their passports held by employers, often receiving no pay for their work. Wal-Mart also is a member of the U.S.-Middle East Free Trade Coalition.

    At a moment when people across the Middle East reveal in poll after poll a deep distrust of the United States, and particularly of its actions in the region, it seems ill-advised to advance trade agreements that provide clear rewards to a handful of U.S. corporations but few discernible benefits to either the people of the Middle East or the people of the United States.

    So how do you think this plays with the people in the Middle East?

    We know the above is what Bin Laden uses to recruite terrorist ?

    If you would like to be the richest man in the world, come up with a present day match for the 19th century British- China trade. The Chinese had all the tea in the world and the Brits became so fond of it that it almost broke Britain because the Chinese would only sell it for silver. The Brits smuggled some tea plants out of China to India where it was propigated and India became the tea supplier to Britain. They then introduced the Chinese to opium addiction and would sell it to them only for silver. This ended in 1949 when Mao took over. Lots of USA business also participated in this trade including Russell & Co. (Roosevelt family)and got to be richer than 6 feet up a bulls ass.

    This is a separate issue than any national trade policies with China. Hey I think it’s great for Atlanta, the port of Savannah, and Georgia if it encourages trade here. But more imporantly, I’m for anything (coastal commerce in this case) that undermines the NAFTA Superhighway (and the North American Union). http://tectonicforces.blogspot.com.
