    I haven't understood why we've tried to be so buddy buddy with commies like China. Communism is horrible, and the Chinese government is horrible. We should deal with them in a cordial manner as demanded by diplomacy and nothing else. We shouldn't do anything to celebrate the existence of commie governments.

    I can't even begin to imagine what the Empire State Building Corporation is thinking. Sure, maybe they'll get some goodwill with Chinese clients, but they're also offending a lot of Americans. An incredibly stupid idea.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    This is from the Empire State Building's website and shows the lighting schedule and the listed occasion.

    The reason given is "60th Anniversary of the People’s Republic of China," so I imagine it is a real story.

    Because it also resulted in a huge cheap labor force which American corporations can use to manufacture products at a greatly reduced cost, which in turn will allow those of us who have been forced to take lower-paying jobs to continue to line the pockets of our post-industrial masters.

    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Here comes the voice of reason:

    Until we as a nation, in general, stop buying cheap crap from China, we have no right to throw stones at the people who run the Empire State Building, because we've all sold out.

    Period.


    TED,
    Thinks we could do with a little less hysteria and a little more soul-searching, thanks.
