    Chinese company buys AMC movie theater chain

    The Chinese are coming to your local movie theater. With the fanfare from Superman, and toasts of red wine, representatives of Chinese company Wanda signed a deal in Beijing Monday morning to buy AMC, the second-largest theater chain in the USA.


    If approved by U.S. and Chinese regulators, the $2.6 billion acquisition will create the world's largest theater group, the companies said. The move, China's biggest corporate takeover to date in the USA, highlights the rising financial strength of its top firms.

    Thank you american corporations.

    Cut rate chairs that fall apart after you sit in them a few times, soda, popcorn and candy laced with strange chemicals and pro Chi-com messages edited into movies...what's not to love?
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Globally, they are capitalists like no other. Internally, they are communist.

    In other words, their people have to power whatsoever, which gives them unadultered free reign to do whatever they want with whatever resources they want. No pesky Bill of Rights or Constitution to contend with.

    This is what the U.S. would like if Wal-mart was in the White House.

    I understand the difference between communism by definition, and what's going on in China. There has never been a truly communist country by definition.

    I also understand that private ventures in China remain at the mercy of governmental whims, and that it comes at a tremendous expense of the lower end of the people, who are treated no better than animals. The government there still is completely immune to its people.
