I bet all of these people complaining about Trump going after Chinese companies investing in the US are the same ones who were bitching that Chinese companies snapping up all the real estate during the recession..

All I know is Softbank owns an alarming amount of Silicon Valley right now.


  1. We should have hunkered down and stopped letting the world beat us senseless with tariffs. It would have hurt us for a while but we would have gotten all our industry back by now....but NO! We have to make it hurt more.
    We need to suck it up and be austere for a put us back where we belong: Undisputed masters of economic and military power.

    If the liberals don't like that..then screw them. Move to a has been country like France

  2. That's the thing - I'm a capitalist true and true. But we let things go too far. Things wouldn't hurt so bad if they built more of it here. But Silicon Valley has basically given them everything in the name of cheap labor. For a while any new start up that had to make some physical item was forced to build in China. Silicon Valley would not give them money otherwise.

    But my experience is that people refuse to endure any pain. So I bet this gets ugly. That's why these few people keep failing up. A few people can endure a ~lot~ of pain and ....... I want to say survive - but this is a very dysfunctional survival.

  6. Tell me true tell me why was Jesus crucified
    Is it for this that daddy died?
    Was it for you? was it me?
    Did I watch too much t.v.?
    Is that a hint of accusation in your eyes?
    If it wasn't for the nips
    Being so good at building ships
    The yards would still be open on the Mississip
    And it can't be much fun for them
    Beneath the rising sun
    With all their kids committing suicide
    What have we done maggie what have we done
    What have we done to America
    Should we shout should we scream
    "What happened to the post war dream?"
    Oh Maggie Maggie what have done?

  7. I raise you one.
