Obama: Know where itís really great to do business? (China's infrastructure vastly superior to us)

Well, as long as you forget about the oppressive Communist government and the lack of freedom and the Internet filtering and the re-education camps … China sounds really groovy:

Everybody’s watching what’s going on in Beijing right now with the Olympics. Think about the amount of money that China has spent on infrastructure. Their ports, their train systems, their airports are vastly the superior to us now, which means if you are a corporation deciding where to do business you’re starting to think, “Beijing looks like a pretty good option.”

Does Barack Obama understand the nature of the Beijing regime? The reason that the government can afford all of this spending is that they control the means of production and the wealth of the nation. They can confiscate what they want at will and spend it where they like. And in Beijing, they spent it where the cameras would be pointed.

Unfortunately, most of what the cameras see is just a facade, as Dale Franks points out at Q&O:

Understand it ? The Obamanation wants to bring it here as his vision for the new People Republic of Ameika ... ruled by him and his elitist buddies ... aided by the help of the legions of useful idiots that is the demoncratic party

Barrack Milhouse wants to point the cameras.

Rush is blasting Barry the “man child” on this...and his anti-American remarks on Russia.

Obama will be naming Gregory Potemkin as his running mate. Apparently Gregory is alive and well and can produce a certificate of live birth issued by the Kingdom Of Hawaii.

Of course not. What Barry is really referring to is "infrastructure" like this:



...which will be sitting empty in a few weeks time unless the PRC regime finds another use for it, like hosting political rallies ...the only thing Obama and his type are good at.

All done with our money since our government has taxed and regulated our own businesses out of our country. Like the 799 Billion we are forced to send to the middle east due to taxes and regulations against domestic oil companies.

All manufacturing has been hit with government burden.

This reminds me of the Americans who praised Nazi-run Germany because of the Berlin Olympics in 1936.

Says newborn-baby-Kevorkian Marxist Obama... if you are a corporation deciding where to do business you’re starting to think, “Beijing looks like a pretty good option".

So, newborn-baby-Kevorkian Marxist Obama, are modern day slavery and human trafficking part of the "change" and "sacrifice" you prescribe for us under your...(I'm wincing)...presidency?

Business in China is very dangerous. It’s really the ‘Wild East’ over there.

What laws there are are not enforced. A good business environment relies on contract law and fair play. That is not China. Everything runs on bribery and force.

My wife is from China and tells me how factory owners hire policemen to rough up the owners of competing factories in order to try to intimidate the competition. It’s just not safe.
