Toxic Deplorable Racist B Woodman Oct 26 2019 at 12:15 am Can we trade Hong Kong for Kalifornica? Toxic Deplorable Racist B Woodman Oct 26 2019 at 12:17 am It would automatically raise the national IQ by 20 points. And reduce the national debt. Steve Peterson Oct 26 2019 at 3:27 pm In D.C . That would be 1000 points! Pamela Oct 26 2019 at 12:21 am Dude! Instead of swapping Hong Kong for Cali, ship all the Dems, Comms, Progs, Socis and Ill-legals to Hong Kong and bring the Hong Kong Residents that want Freedom here. John Oct 26 2019 at 5:38 pm Even just a one-for-one population exchange (including bank accounts) would net the US out way ahead. Especially when you reflect on the consequences for those in California who actually think they _want_ a Communist government. JTC Oct 26 2019 at 12:27 am Gardeners make an honest living. But American-style entrepreneurship is the Hong Kong model. So we trade the people and they keep the countries…double the population on eight times the land mass, how long before the HK people transform PR into an economic powerhouse with proximity geographically and philosophically and politically with the USA? Conversely, how long before the current inhabitants of PR turn the gleaming and productive HK into a packed slum? John D. Egbert Oct 26 2019 at 9:34 am About as long as it took you to write that post! John Oct 26 2019 at 5:39 pm No, no. Not a slum. A Reeducation Camp. WayneM Oct 26 2019 at 12:34 am It seems like Trump realizes China doesn’t play fair… ever… and they’re not actually playing… Whether Trump will be able to make enough of an impact in how US companies… and other countries… interact with China remains to be seen. Of course, Canada’s pathetic excuse for a Prime Minister expressed his open admiration for China’s “basic dictatorship” in the past… https://youtu.be/eqnmfNiaM-Y The Basseteer Oct 26 2019 at 2:02 am But in Canada Alberta and Saskatchewan are talking about seceding after the last election; they feel they aren’t being represented. Fox2! Oct 26 2019 at 2:22 am The WeXit group includes Saskatchewan and (parts of) British Columbia, as well. BC has the same East/West of the coastal range problem that our west coast has. the_frumious_bandersnatch Oct 27 2019 at 5:47 am Well, not all of those west of the Cascades are WillametteValleyAxis-SeaTac nutjobs. Most of us who live in the Beaver and Evergreen States and surround those $#!+heads have productive jobs, even if in other parts of the country and world. eon Oct 26 2019 at 6:30 am Quebec is Canada. Canada is Quebec. Ask any Quebecer, like Mini-Tru, and they’ll tell you so. As far as they’re concerned, everybody else can fall in line, or get baisé. Which they will be delighted to do for you, in any orifice they please. clear ether eon Pamela Oct 26 2019 at 1:23 pm As they saying goes the French they are a funny race. They eat with their hands and F*ck with their face. I think the rest of the country is tired of getting Screwed with a F. Randy Oct 26 2019 at 7:07 am We Western New Yorkers know how they feel! interventor Oct 26 2019 at 11:12 am Quite a few northern New Yorkers, as well. Drove to the Frederick Remington museum a few years ago. Area looks like the depression never left. Plus. viewed a photo of a captain of Indian scout. We share the same name, plus an uncanny resemblance. kadaka Oct 26 2019 at 12:57 am But if they don’t admit the Asians into DC then who will give the politicians and their lobbyists their Happy Lotus Butterfly massages? Kafiroon Oct 26 2019 at 3:10 am The Chinese can just wait maybe 20 years, then they can simply take over running this country. That should be no problem for those that look at the long view. Now since the proglodytes definitely do not even consider the results of their dreams to control everything/everyone; the USA, as we know it, will completely collapse. The solar/wind/ whatever dream they have has fail/collapse built in. There is not enough rare earth material to build all they need. For only ONE fail factor in those dreams. Note califlakes “brownouts” from lack of maintenance/infrastructure. What did ecofreaks use for lighting before wood fires? Electricity! Remember: They want us old white dudes dead. AND, they are are NOT teaching the young white (or other colors) dudes, how to build, fix, maintain, or create anything anymore. Math, physics, and hard science is racist white privilege. How many people are learning what all the new programs are for the latest CNC machines? Industrial electricians? Water system engineers? Etc. Etc. Etc. So I figure with us old farts gone and not enough replacements, the country is ripe for the taking. interventor Oct 26 2019 at 11:14 am My nephew learned water treatment at a community college. No debt and a six figure salary after 3 years on the job. Kafiroon Oct 26 2019 at 2:19 pm Good for him! My grandchildren both studied and got themselves great jobs in the medical field. They tell me that many of their classmates went for easy light weight jobs. Problem is that Medical does not keep infrastructure of the country running. We just do not have enough new people learning like your nephew. Industrial jobs and construction have been begging for years. Halley Oct 26 2019 at 5:53 am I’ve heard a few Democrats in private say how they admire China’s authoritarian One-Party State (“it’s the only way to get things done!”). I’ve no doubt it’s a shared feeling among most. John Oct 26 2019 at 5:47 pm I’d love to hear why they aren’t so enthusiastic about our own One-Party State. Could it be that Big Brother does not reign in California? JTC Oct 26 2019 at 6:10 pm “It never reigns in California, but Lord, don’t they warn ya? It pours, man, it pours.” Sorry. Seemed apropos. Because it comes right after this: “Out of work, I’m out of my head Out of self respect, I’m out of bread I’m underloved, I’m underfed, I want to go home.” Steve Peterson Oct 26 2019 at 6:22 am And the progtard dildocrats & rinos “will be the first against the wall when the revolution comes” eon Oct 26 2019 at 6:36 am The Chinese, or more precisely, the Mongols, because that’s who we’re actually talking a bout her, have always had the same attitude toward toadies that the Islamists have. As the Sultan Mehmed II said to the “notables” of Constantinople who opened the gates and surrendered the city to him in 1467, “You have betrayed your own people. Why should I leave you alive to betray me in turn?” Then he had the lot of them beheaded and let his army go on to sack the city. A Red Chinese ‘triumph” over the United States, even an economic one, won’t be pleasant, even or especially for those who facilitate it. clear ether eon Wotan Oct 26 2019 at 6:32 am https://www.facebook.com/jack.l.blankenship.1/posts/10217698489686075?notif_id=1572037796405211¬if_t=feedback_reaction_generic WayneM Oct 26 2019 at 1:18 pm For those who don’t want to pass through Zuckerbook to get to the original article… https://ricochet.com/681132/republicans-begin-impeachment-investigation/ I doubt Cocaine Mitch has the gravitas to pull off such a stunt. JTC Oct 26 2019 at 6:51 pm He’s definitely a little baffled by it all, but I think his heart’s in the right place. We’ll see how things shake out when the clown show moves over into his chamber. Doggo Oct 27 2019 at 2:45 pm The clown show will never move into his chamber. Several reasons: 1. Despite years of investigations, double-secret probation, and millions of dollars, they haven’t uncovered a crime (or even a high misdemeanor); 2. San Fran Nan and are schiff-for-brains are enjoying running the current version of the “investigation” aka “mudslinging”; and 3. Nan at least is a shrewd enough politician to realize that if the House ever actually voted on anything they would be responsible to their districts and would lose any district that was even remotely purple. John M. Oct 26 2019 at 11:40 pm Forget “Gravitas,” McConnell doesn’t have the cojones! kadaka Oct 26 2019 at 8:50 am What gardeners? Automated gardener ushers in new era of ‘robotony’ The country has a labor shortage. Dems are pushing a $15/hr minimum. The cost of workers is going up. So innovation has responded with robot gardeners and harvesters. Crops are now grown better and cheaper indoors, which is better for automation. The “need” for bringing in illegal immigrants for agricultural work will be going away soon enough. So Dems are eager to get in as many future constituents now as possible. But also lots of people south of the border need those remittances from family working up here, and the cartels have expanded into formerly legitimate businesses those people buy from. So don’t be surprised as to how Dem campaign finance reform proposals to remove “big money” lead to tens of thousands of small donations tied to the crime syndicates. And Progressives discover a “right to work” that includes illegals. interventor Oct 26 2019 at 5:40 pm Chris, received my envelope, today. Thanks. Kafiroon Oct 26 2019 at 6:43 pm Thanks Chris! Got the envelope. Beautiful! Thanks for the great dialog and art work.
