    Oh, the irony! If former SEIU Thug-in-chief Andy Stern tried to set up a union independent of the Chinese government, he would be thrown in prison for a very long time.

    And yet, here he is on the pages of the (just whisper it, Andy) WALL STREET Journal, praising the Chinese "model" (whatever that is) and gloating over the "death" of free market capitalism

    ....


    Andy Stern is an idiot. And this proves it:

    "Social equity???" In a Communist country?That is so far down the list of goals for the Chinese government it's damn near invisible. Only a moronic liberal, eager to believe anything told him by hosts who take full advantage of the mindless naivete of their guests could possibly be fooled by such utter nonsense.

    I don't know whether Stern realizes what an ass he is making of himself by believing that you can actually "plan" 7% growth over 5 years. And there is so much that Stern isn't including in this hymn to central planning that it is simply outrageous to take what he's saying here without a huge grain of salt.

    China is building 6 million homes because they don't have enough housing for its workers. That's because previous 5 year plans failed to account for such. They are investing in "renewable energy" largely because they have the most polluted cities on the planet. Recall the Olympics where the IOC almost refused to allow the marathon to be run because of the choking smog that covered Beijing. Nasty air and water due to government carelessness and neglect is a fact of life in China. For them, developing an alternative to coal is a matter of life and death.

    The Chinese can manufacture all they want because they can pay their workers anything they wish. No mention by the former labor leader about the low wages being paid Chinese workers and why it's against the law to agitate for more.

    Least bowing doesn't look gay.

    Bush really was all kissy with his theocratic masters.

    That would involve working and we all know that's not something you like to do.

    The Chinese are only "Evil Meanies" to Democrats when the Republicans are in power. Remember the good ole days when Democrats used to at least pretend to care about Outsourcing and American Jobs? Now the Democrats have the power and suddenly the Chinese are their bestest buddies in the whole wide world. Just another scam i guess. And Andy Stern is a Socialist/Communist himself,so this really isn't surprising.

    Plentiful cheap labor, no unions, deplorable working conditions, no environmental concerns.

    What's not to love about China?
