  3. PS: Mauritania, which has roughly 800,000 slaves, was just elected VP of the UN “Human Rights” Council.

  5. The only part of CHICOMIA that works is the free-market part, jackass.
    Learn what the CHICOMs learned when they abandoned Maoism.

    Imagine what China could do if it were free.
    Same for the US.

  6. China’s economic and political system will come crashing down around them shortly after ours does. 2018 or so is my guess.

  7. I heard some horrid ad on the radio yesterday, encouraging people to take advantage of a low-interest loan from their credit unions to buy GM cars at deep discount prices.

    So, the government subsidizes loans so that people can buy government-made cars??? Am I reading that right?

    Way to stimulate competition and create jobs.

  8. Yeah, we know. All those millions on millions of dead Chinese people that were starved to death for the sake of Communism just don’t count.

    Right, Jeff?

  9. China is not communist.

    Sure, they keep the trappings of communism (People’s Republic, People’s Army, Communist party) but under Deng, they shifted from a state-planned economy to a free-market economy, while keeping the repressive, one-party state.

    That’s called “fascism”.

    To succeed, it requires a corrupt interplay between business and state, with worker exploitation and lax environmental controls. Take a trip to Shanghai sometime and tell me if it’s working. It’s made a few people very rich, at the expense of millions of workers and citizens.

  11. Immelt, like all Progs, likes systems that “make the trains run on time.”
