HERE is Stern's Op-Ed printed in the Wall Street Journal. The title is "China's Superior Economic Model". When you read it, hold on to your wallet, this guy wants your money and tour freedom and he wants the government to be in charge of all aspects of the economy and your life. He loves those Chinese policies. I find it ironic that Stern's efforts to unionize America are the primary reason there has been huge job flight to the communist Chinese where any dissent is met with jail or death. He must live in an alternate universe.
Now, I am probably not the only one confused by a screed praising a country, run by communists who use slave and or convict labor, underage workers and relocated peasants and pay them about two bucks a day, well at least the peasants. All the while complaining America's poverty level is so terrible at about $30,000 per year, Stern seems to think the one paying a hundredth of that is a superior system. How can this be if Stern is serious about the economics? In my opinion his view has nothing to do with the economy, it has to do with his belief in the communist system as long as he is in charge of course.
In my history books, I have yet to find where the policies of our country, the free enterprise country, allowed 50 million people to die by starvation in order to keep the rest of the people in servitude. How people like Stern can consciously overlook Stalin's and Mao's murderous bent and the evaporation of another 50 million or so peasants is simply unbelievable. I wonder how many students murdered at Tienanmen Square could have perhaps had a chance to cure cancer? No, Stern says this about he personal experience in China lately,
"As this was happening, I was part of a U.S.-China dialogue—a trip organized by the China-United States Exchange Foundation and the Center for American Progress—with high-ranking Chinese government officials, both past and present."
Now why would our country send him there? Could his personal friendship with Obama be at work here? He is also the person who gets the most visits overnight at the White House. What can we learn from a communist led country regarding "workers" rights? I would like to know if this trip was also taken by our local lefty Steve Frisch. Did they learn how to flog the help if the help disagrees with the communist manager?
Then we have the other "smarter than the average bear" Eugene Robinson. He is a columnist for the Washington Post and a huge liberal. He is touring China and sending articles back and he seems to be loving that Commie country. HERE is his first screed of love for the murderous Chinese government. He complains the Republicans running for President are just dumb when it comes to China and he, Robinson, is not.
Robinson said this about the Chines and I almost lost my breakfast when I read it.
"Yes, China is governed — in an authoritarian, repressive, at times shockingly brutal manner — by a regime that calls itself communist."
Even with the above admittance, Robinson has written a glowing wonder-story (fantasy in my view) about how great this smog filled, overcrowded, anti environmental regime really is. When you read it you will see why we on the right have known the liberals love the communists and hate republicans! It is truly amazing a "so-called" American can actually think and write these things.
I would suggest everyone read both articles and then you will understand why their is such a "great divide" here in America. We on the right love America and want other countries to emulate us. Liberals love communism/socialism and wnt us to emulate Albania of old. Never the two to meet.
