Enter The Dragon
His excellency Hu Jintao, President of the People's Republic of China, was wined and dined at the White House. Yes, we are now entertaining Communists that have lent us ginormous sums of money.
The amount of groveling that we are witnessing is so incredibly sad. Sadder too is the way we have treated our oldest allies, such as Britain.
On the dinner menu, honoring the Communist Hu, was poached Maine lobster and dry-aged rib eye with creamed spinach with old fashioned apple pie. All of this of course was accompanied with a selection of fine wines from California and Washington state. How American.
And the White House truly became "The People's House".
There were bouquets of RED roses all around.
Red Chinese flags flew at the Capitol reportedly above the US flag, and the First Lady was clad in RED.
To be honest, the "off-the-shoulder" look is extremely undignified for the FLOTUS. She shouldn't be striving for "sexy" or "controversial", she should be striving for dignified and stylish, as is expected of her office. The woman definitely isn't channeling Jackie "O".
The usual elites were all in attendance. Kissinger, Streisand, Pelosi and more.
We cannot openly criticize the Chinese for their policies either, because we are being so careful not to bite the hand that feeds us now. No honest talk about human rights violations, or the treatment of Tibet and Taiwan. Anyone recall the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989?
We have allowed these Communist Chinese leaders, basically thugs, currency manipulators, human rights abusers, and Communists, to become the suppliers of loans and cheaply-produced goods. In the end they own us. They have enabled us to overspend and foolishly trade away jobs for their cheap goods.
We have allowed this.
Our unions have allowed this, our elected leaders have allowed this and our dumbed down population has allowed this.
So while the Obamas suck up to the Chinese, one thing to note is that such a lavish dinner party was most likely indirectly paid for by the guests being honored, because we certainly can no longer afford it on our own.
It might be appropriate to say a prayer for the 1/8 of our country that survives on food stamps and the millions that are out of work.
