Tungsten, why are you afraid to articulate your convictions?

Because typing hurts my fingertips and ruins keyboards. 

U.S. #1 most popular evil demented psychotic rabid baddie evar. Got it? China has eclipsed Russia and vaulted into #2 spot with the Russkies a distant 3rd. In spite of what the dismal dollar drenched Dems would have you believe.

See graph above. 

You confuse me. I thought you was smarter?

So, we ignore everyone else's shit until we reign in your countries improprieties?

If so, could you please shut the fuck up about everyone else?  Or are you the arbiter of what we need to care about whenever you decide?

https://tnc.news/2019/11/29/former-bc-mla-alleges-canadian-government-ignored-his-2015-detention-in-china/

Former B.C. MLA Richard Lee was detained for 8 hours, separated from his family & his government issued cellphone searched by Chinese authorities at Shanghai 4 years ago. Then he was forced back onto a plane & sent back to Canada. He told the Canadian government about it but they said nothing until he went public, then they had a comment. The spineless mincing pimp Trudeau has no backbone to stand up to China. Yet another Canadian public official that has sold out to offshore interests.

This is always the sort of comment that I never really agree with. I could give two shits about Justin, but you name me one Canadian politician who would have the stones to stand up to China. They are like the hand that feeds. Our population and economy pale in comparison.

What's Trudeau gonna do?   Threaten military action?  Slap tariffs on their goods?  Ask for the UN to impose sanctions?

And it's not just Canada.  What is anyone to do?  Trump started his trade war and I don't think it is on Xi's top ten list of things to give a shit about.  We let China leach off the global economy for decades and they banked it.

Yup we were all too happy to buy up cheap consumer goods and now just about everything is manufactured over there. We have no clout and neither does the rest of the world. China controls the monopoly board.

Looks like this one is going to do some damage. I'm sure the number of infected is much higher than what's being reported.

Air travel is the best way to catch a virus, so when you land you don't even know you are sick. This screening system that YVR is using is laughable. Do they have eye scanners like in I am legend?
