Burn the Olympic Uniforms! And Maybe Kick a Few Hypocritical Asses While We’re At It; A Tale of Corrupt, Lying Dirtbags
For all I know, there is an official supplier of Olympic toilet paper. It’s the usual merchandising tie-in silly season.
Certainly, there is an official supplier of the Olympic dress uniforms, the ones that the athletes wear in the ceremonies.
I will refrain from commenting upon the effete continental styling. No one in their right mind would take fashion advice from me. They do look terribly French, though.
But, oh, the sin which has been committed by the official uniform supplier, Ralph Lauren! He/they/whatever the company really is had the uniforms tailored in China! And, boy oh boy, are we in a tizzy.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid held a serious and indignant news conference. His features were dark, his brow furrowed. His voice was a little squeaky, but he can’t help that. Behind him were other equally serious solons, looking somber, serious and like they had swallowed a mosquito at this shocking insult to American labor and American honor. Burn the uniforms, says Harry! Americans cannot sit back and accept this grave insult.
In addition to Senator Reid, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Rep. Steve Israel, and Sen. Sherrod Brown, among others, are joining in the snit.
Vishnu on a rotisserie, what a load of horseshit.
Not that I am in favor of Chinese anything except for the Chinese people. Let their sewing machines go crazy and put three Mao jackets in every closet, that’s prosperity.
I just hope we are not stupid enough to think that these senators and representatives and the rest of their hooker colleagues who sold America to the Chinese in the first place are worthy of belief or respect.
Government policy assisted manufacturing jobs in fleeing the United States. Many of them went to Mexico. Then, not only did China screw the remaining manufacturing workers in the United States, they went ahead and screwed the Mexicans, too. With the money we have been sending the China via “loyal” American companies who turfed out their manufacturing, the government of China has been buying up the American government.
Here I’m not talking about political contributions, those are washed through the loyal American companies who sucked up to China. No, we are talking a direct sale: Our of our $14.3 trillion debt, $4.5 trillion is held by foreign government. The government of China holds one fourth of that foreign debt. Japan holds another 20%. You’ll be happy to know that the oil exporting countries hold more than 5%.
Let’s see, that’s 50% of our country owned by people who despise us. Real, real, bright, aye?
What do we get in return? No jobs and shitty plastic toys covered with lead paint.
Oh, we also get the benefit of 1 GW (that’s ONE BILLION WATTS) of coal-fired generating capacity put online in China each and every week at the same time the EPA just crippled the American coal industry.
And these people want to talk about Olympic uniforms?
On the other hand, they have to. They cannot afford to piss off the Chinese investors, lest their legal and immoral campaign largess from the financial and other industries vanishes.
Just take a look at the great liberal, Sen. Reid. In the 2012 campaign cycle alone, he has accepted campaign contributions from Credit Suisse Securities, Goldman Sachs (returning bailout money?) and directors of investment giant KKR. He is not alone. Virtually every politician has his and her nose in the trough.
These are the hypocritical bastards who ARE the problem. I’m doubting that they have a tip nor clue about a solution, nor the desire to look for one.
I've been asleep. Didn't we used to have two NATIONAL political parties? Where did they both go?
