Just state legislatures?  Isn't this pretty much national policy, public as well as private sector?

Keep buying that cold war propaganda. China didnt steal those jobs and destroy the US working class.

No, our government did that. They can choose to rectify it, however, we keep electing assholes.

You have to recite the oath of fealty to the Democratic Party in this thread before criticizing them, then once you are done posting you must quit your day job and run for elected office yourself or else you aren't being sincere about your criticism.

Repeat after me:

I, austerity101, of sound mind and body hereby declare that I have voted for Democrats in every election for as long as I have been legally allowed to vote, including voting for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential election.

Alright, once you've done that, you may criticize the Democratic party in the Fark Poltab.

We need a pic of Diane with her Chinese-spy limo driver.  Or was he her handler?

Yes, China has their tentacles deep.  But let's not concern ourselves with that propaganda.  We should investigate Trump's pretend Russian co-colluders and that bastion of truth and in no way made up while sitting around drinking. Steele Dossier.

Senator Jesse Hamilton then rose to pay tribute to Zhang, whom he has also met on many occasions. "I stand here today as a proud Senator for a proud people in the borough of Brooklyn, my Asian brothers and sisters," he said. "And I just want to wish you a happy Lunar New Year. And not only is it the New Year of the Rooster, it is the New Year of the Red Rooster."

OMG WHY ISN'T THIS SENATOR IN JAIL!!?!??!?

I don't want war, not even of the cold variety, I'd just like to not be in business with an openly evil government.  If the working class gets something out of it, that's great.

We should pretend they made a bad joke on Twitter 10 or 12 years ago, and stop working with them.

I'd never heard of The Diplomat until now. But I note that Media Bias Fact Check rates them as neutral, which is at least a high mark in their favor. As I understand it, Media Bias only uses an algorithm for linguistic analysis to arrive at a score for bias, as opposed to some human "assessor". They also note that the website content originates in Japan, FWIW.

I started to actually read this article and all what I got to was they there were people doing "Good relations" with China and was trying to help NY businesses to get business in China.

It seemed to be big on innuendo and basically say if you pro-Chinese relationships it's somehow you are doing something illegal.

So I stopped reading. Obviously from the lack of people giving specific in this thread I imagine there were no real specific in the article either.

No I didn't read the whole thing because it wasn't going anywhere and I think implying someone is pro-china because they said pro-asian things is pretty much racist.

Can you actually point out in the article specifically what you thought was so bad instead of just blaming everything on democrats.


The article made it sound saying good things about Asians means your pro-china government.

The New York State Legislature has developed a special relationship with Beijing.


The entire story is about relationships with Beijing, not "Asia".

We're still allowed to have religions, we don't have concentration camps and we're not disappearing citizens for criticizing us.  World governments have to be graded on a curve, but there's no relevant comparison here.

Only partly.  Big business is at least as responsible for the death of the middle class.  The Republican tax cuts are a major factor, but if business hadn't sold out America for a couple of points on the bottom line, we'd still have a thriving middle class.  I agree that the solution is governmental, but not sure how that can happen until we reign big business in...it's a pretty vicious catch-22...

A person can be smart, but people are dumb.

And term limits aren't the answer.  Keeping pols from being bought is the answer.   An informed populace is the answer.  An informed judiciary is the answer.

Seriously, if the courts were structured not as adversarial but actually to find fact at the appellate level, judicial review wouldn't be the joke it is today.  The appellate level really needs to be able to kick things back with advice to the legislative.
