This twit works overtime to demonstrate the utter stupidity of Republicrats. DemocRATs are totally evil, but Republicans remain the stupid party!

Specifically, “The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service administers an immigrant investor visa program called EB-5. The program grants foreigners permanent U.S. residency in exchange for helping create U.S. jobs.” This prong will facilitate the immigration of Chinese nationals into the United States for the purpose of establishing a Chinese industrial beachhead in Idaho, under the guise of creating U.S. jobs. The second phase involves the granting of tax breaks to the foreign companies. In exchange for an investment of between $500,000 and $1 million (depending on whether the target zone is rural or urban, respectively), the foreign investor receives tax incentives.

This "business opportunity" is courtesy of the federal government.

Maybe Otter thinks that the Chinese model of Communism works better than the Obama model of Communism. He could be right.

A significant swathe of land south of Boise (about 30,000 acres) was bought by China, a purchase Idaho’s Governor promises will “reinvigorate our American industrial base.”

The area in question is south of the airport, and I live a little ways west of the place. I'm not excited about having a huge Chinese complex in my backyard.

I’d like to see the Governor’s side of the story before I believe all of the opinions in this piece, which seems to be peppered with class warfare comments, and before I believe any of the kneejerk reactions on this thread.

Before complaining about the Governor’s use of this visa program, recall that this is a federal program that has been around for years designed to bring foreign investment into the country.

While Freepers love to call all Chinese people Communists, there is a lot of free market capitalism happening in China now that simply isn’t occuring in America any longer. Does China have an EPA?

Those Chinese are coming here to make money and investing a lot of money into the local economy. Are Americans who are on the receiving end of that money and jobs suffering? Are we going to call them sell-outs for practicing Capitalism?

Bottom line, the knee jerk reactions to this just may not be correct.
