When prosperity trumps demands for democracy

http://flip.it/eBAqsb

In the U.S., democracy gave Americans Trump and white supremacy after Obama took the country to the extreme left. Bush Jr. invaded Afghanistan and Iraq to look for WMD. Clinton gave Americans a blue dress to remember.

Democracy split America right in the middle and left huge debt to be paid by future generations.

In Hong Kong, democracy gave the city a black eye, riots on the street, months of civil unrest and a doomed future.

Some people in Hong Kong took their anger to the street not because they don’t have freedom of expression.which they obviously do, but because their hopes for a better life were gone.

The problem was not a political one but an economic one. These protesters should blame the 2009 financial crisis started by the U.S. which gave the world unprecedented inequality, rising equity and real estate markets.

你有十萬美金嗎? August 8, 2019

Miami Dolphins owner fires back after anti-Trump activists plan Equinox, SoulCycle boycotts

http://flip.it/udRotP

如果你有十萬美金,你可以跟 Trump 照個相。你要是有二十五萬美金,你可以跟 Trump 吃個飯。

Quote no. 1:

Stephen Ross, owner of the NFL’s Miami Dolphins, fired back Wednesday at critics of President Trump, defending his plans to host a fundraiser for Trump on Friday at his Hamptons home on New York’s Long Island.

Trump himself is expected to attend the event, at which donors can have their photo taken with the president for $100,000 or attend a private roundtable discussion with him for $250,000, according to the Washington Post.

捲二十五萬美金,Trump 可能會給你做乃幾內亞的大使。捲十萬美金,想要再看 Trump 的機會不大,不過白宮可以讓你帶孩子在復活節去白宮的草地上找雞蛋。

你覺得你捲的 $25 美金有什麼用嗎?

“This is what racism looks like:” Progressives hit back at Trump’s “go back” tweet

http://flip.it/JAXMOV

It is up to the Democrats and the liberal press to put a lid on Trump. The Republican party has become the co-conspirator to Trump’s agenda. They are helping Trump to divide the U.S. And it is a good thing for the rest of the world.

The more Trump is entangled in fighting with the other 60% of the American people, the less damage Trump can harm the world.

The bigger mess Trump can get himself in, the more he can divide this nation. As a result, America will accomplish less and it will drag the nation down from within.

Hello, Pelosi, impeach Trump. Many American people are hoping for that. I gurantee you that it will be a much more interesting show to watch. It will be more exciting than “The Apprentice”.”

Hello, AG of the SDNY, indict Trump. Make Trump loose his cool in public.

Hello, the relevant oversight Committes of the U.S. Congress, publish Trump’s tax returns and let American people see just how many billions Trump has and what kind of shady deals he has done in the past.

The more American people get to see what kind of person Trump really is, the less likely he will be in the WH in January 2021.

By then, he may go to jail for what he did in the WH.

#Unwantedivanka: awkward moment at G20 prompts slew of Trump parodies

http://flip.it/mhL3Mt

從來沒想到美國這個自稱”民主燈塔”的國家竟然也會亂搞裙帶關係,允許外戚干政。不但搞,還公開的搞。不但搞,美國總統還親自下廚搞。不但搞,這些外戚,內親還厚著臉皮的幫著搞。

國會的民主黨黨員雖然咬牙切齒,可是束手無策。共和黨黨員睜一隻眼,閉一只眼。生米都已經煮成熟飯了,這些民主黨的黨員能把 Trump 怎麽樣。

美國的媒體批評 Trump 和他的外戚內親,他們皮厚,根本不在乎。

美國的窮人忙著過日子,沒心情管這碼子事。美國的有錢人賺錢都來不及,這種事他們看多了,早就是見怪不怪了。

一個賣房子的可以做美國總統,請問,賣房子的難道不能做外交官嗎?講笑。他們雞尾酒趴去過那麽多次,總學會了一兩招吧。

你看開一點不就天下太平了嗎?你說是不是?

我本來以為這個世界上只有獨裁政權才有太子黨,公主幫,親戚派和血親門。

我錯了。美國這個民主也民主不到那裏去。

Hong Kong Protests Turn Violent as Demonstrators Storm Government Building

http://flip.it/uK1SCL

These hard line protestors are doing a disservice to Hong Kong’s future because their actions will push foreign companies and capitals away from the island city.

The roles Hong Kong played for the past many years probably have already been replaced by Shanghai and Shenzhen.

Hong Kong is way less important to China now than just a few years ago. The violent protests will accelerate the pace to the detriment of Hong Kong.

Pushbacks from the government and China are coming and the entire Hong Kong will pay in the form of a stagnant economy, low wage growth, higher unemployment and decling wealth.

一般來說,海內外的政客都是用空頭支票來騙選民的。反正開出去的空頭支票不用他/她出錢,不管它的結果對人民有多壞,也是以後政客和選民的問題。

這年頭,連任 is job no 1。

這一招在全世界都行得通。無可厚非,大家依樣畫葫蘆。你會,我也會。不稀奇。

臺灣的政客除了要會開空頭支票以外,拿一把刷子那就只有被別人當豬拱的份。

君不見,臺灣國民黨的政客真厲害。他們功力之高可謂前無古人,後一定還有來者。

要選又有一點不好意思。不選又不甘心。於是乎,每個人的身段之柔軟,態度之曖昧,臉皮之厚實,武藝之高強,實在是不同凡響。如此高人一等的絕學,一定有良師指點。

臺灣的政客除了開空頭支票以外,不拿出一點花招跟別人比劃比劃那是罩不住的。

託夢這種事,反正是我說了算,你能把我怎麽樣?玉皇大帝,觀世音,媽祖,土地公,關公,財神爺,送子觀音,耶穌,彌勒佛,紅孩兒,海龍王,托塔天王都可以參加。如果你能夠指名道姓,講得出那一宮,那一廟,那一山,那一澗的話,真實性比較高,分數比較多。

到時候,看我的厲害,還是你的厲害。誰怕誰呀?

你大白天下午打盹時做的白日夢也算數。我們白天的收,晚上的也收。大家一視同仁,不分彼此,多多益善,廣結良緣。

還有半年多。其他的幾個可以登場了。晚了一步就只有跑龍套的角色當當,那就後悔莫及了。

The Mueller Report Leaves One Key Question Unanswered

http://flip.it/6.x2s6

Trump of course. More covertly of course now that they know what kind of mistakes they made in 2018 election.

Trump knew that Russia would help him to get into the White House. He didn’t tell the election committee and American people.

Shouldn’t Trump sanction Russia and Putin for messing around with American’s election process?

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/western-decadence-puts-democracy-at-risk-2019-02-04

I like to see more government shutdowns in the U.S.

I like to see Trump gets impeached.

I like to see Trump watching more Fox News and getting his foreign and domestic policies from talk heads.

I like to see the U.S. spending more on those 700+ military bases in other countries.

I like to see 70% tax bracket and wealth taxes for the super rich.

Why?

Government shutdown keeps the Congress and the WH butt heads. In the end, nothing gets done.

Trump impeachment will keep the U.S. further divided along the ideology line.

Watching Fox News will bring out the worst policies from Trump.

Spending on military will only get America further into debt. These investments are useless against Russia and China anyway. Will America fight an all out war against Russia or China? Most likely not. So, what’s the point of making more aircraft carriers anyway when annual deficit is over $1 trillion and the entitlement programs are facing insolvency?

Higher taxes on the rich will eventually keep their capitals away from the U.S.

I can continue.

The powerful weapon House Republicans handed Democrats

http://flip.it/OklMmi

House Republicans changed the rules in 2015.

If the Democrats win back the House, they can use the unilateral subpoena authority to make Republicans days very difficult.

The midterm election is only a few days away.
