SUMMER SESSION 2019



BLOG POST #3,230 AT THE AICP-END



427 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020


TODAY IS MY 100th BLOG POST AT THE AICP-END BLOGS


If we kick in the front door, the whole rotten edifice will come crashing down…

Los Angeles, CA 90064, 09-04-2019 Wednesday: Here in Los Angeles, we have a wonderful China Town, a place of beauty, of joy, of some of the finest food one has ever eaten in one’s life.  We love our Chinese Angelinos because of their long and storied history here and we love their brethren who come here to work, as doctors, as engineers, and as chefs and restaurant folk.  We have every type of cuisine available to us here in this city and my favorite is Szechuan and (can you believe it) Cantonese. 
            Yeah, I know, people laugh at me and tell me that the food of Canton is nowhere near as good as Szechuan and Mandarin but hey, it’s what I grew up eating as my parents were big Chinese food eaters what with it being the Great Depression and all.  Cantonese food was good, it was filling, and it was highly affordable for those of us making little to no money back in the day.  God bless you mom and dad.       
Currently, we are watching civil unrest in Hong Kong, the former British Crown Colony that became part of Mainland China again after the Brits ceded her back in the late 1990s just as the Portuguese had to give Macao back.  Hong Kong was to function with the legal system its citizens have known for fifty years or so until the mainland absorbed them back into the fold. 
Unfortunately, the communist government on the other side of the water has sped up the transition and the liberty-loving people of Hong Kong have been in the streets for what seems like months now, protesting to maintain their cherished liberties and Western ways of life and to stop the heavy-hand of the jackbooted thugs ruling Beijing. 
We know that Xi Jinping, the self-proclaimed ‘ruler for life’ must be frothing at the mouth what with this slap to his face by the people of Hong Kong.  Add to that his crumbling economy thanks to the ongoing trade war with the United States in the hands of President Donald J. Trump and he must be going berserk, spittle flying from his purplish lips, demanding this one and that one’s head on a pike on the gates entering his capital city. 
Since China joined the World Trade Organization, they have failed to play fair and if anything, have gone out of their way to spit in our eye while lifting our wallets from our back pants pocket.  The Chinese do not play fair and have not played fair for what seems like decades now, only that it is about 20 years since they began their economic upswing and man have they played dirty.    
The Chinese believed that they could continue robbing us as though we were “simple sister” in the Procol Harum song of the same name (see the album “Broken Barricades”).  They thought they had our collective nuts in their testicle lockboxes and that we would NEVER put our foot down and begin the necessary task of pushing back on someone claiming to be our ‘friend.’ 
The Chinese government is not our friend, have never been our friend, and in their minds believe that were it not for their entry into the Korean War, Korea would be a united, prosperous place thanks to victorious U.S. and U.N. troops and the little fat toad ruling the northern half in Pyongyang would never have been born. 
The Red Chinese believe they forced us into a stalemate, which, they most likely did because Korea was the first place where we lost our collective resolve to do what was necessary and that was to nuke the living bejezzus out of them.  We should have dealt them a blow they would never forget because we know their ally, the now-defunct Soviet Union, would NEVER have lifted a finger to aid their fellow communist cronies. 
The communists lack the necessary testosterone to attack us full-on so they attack us via trade, via the Internet, via whatever nonviolent way they can do it without having to sustain a full on counterattack.  Communists are akin to vermin, scurrying around the room when the homeowner enters a dark room, flips on the overhead light, and all the cockroaches and silverfish scurry for the cracks in the floorboards and the woodwork, seeking the nearest place of egress. 
We must be thankful that we have a president such as Donald J. Trump who is willing to do some serious pushback and push the Chin on their backheels.  Beijing NEVER ever thought that we would pull up our britches, roll up our sleeves, and begin pummeling the scumbags as though they were Mongoloids and morons cringing in a corner.   
I hope the people of Hong Kong remain resolute although things are not looking so good.  The Chinese claimed they were going to cycle in new ‘security forces’ while ferrying out ones who have served their tours but so far that has not yet happened which should tell everyone, they are preparing to do some serious harm on the citizens of Hong Kong, especially the ones carrying the American flag aloft.  At least in some parts of the world, people still respect and revere the flag and revere it for all that it stands. 
I hope the people of Hong Kong remain defiant in the face of fascism because we know the storm is coming.  I also hope that President Trump remains just as resolute that he is going to push the trade war through to a successful conclusion.  The best thing that can happen for the American people is for our ex-pat industries to return home to our shores and begin employing our fellow Americans instead of legions of Chinese. 
We can beat China, all we need do is to kick in the front door and watch the whole rotten edifice come crashing down.  Yeah, I know, a German leader once said that about the USSR; I think in this case, it is appropriate.  Let’s beat China.  
See you tomorrow.  God bless.
