Does Richard Gere disapprove? Will liberal-lefties remove their Free Tibet bumper stickers from their Volvos? Or did they fail to reapply those bumper stickers when they traded up to Toyota Priuses? Barack kowtows. Kinda sad. The US President didn't use to be so weak he had to kowtow. I'm feeling nostalgic.
President Barack Obama has refused to meet the Dalai Lama in Washington this week in a move to curry favour with the Chinese.
I would say it is all about the Benjamins. But it is more like it is all about the Maos. The renminbi currency has pictures of Chairman Mao on it.
The Empire State Building is joining in the spirit. Will the Dalai Lama be barred from entering the Empire State Building? How soon till he's barred from entering the US?
Tonight the Empire State Building will be awash in red and yellow. But instead of honoring a singer intrinsically linked to the city, holidays , or something crassly commercial, the Empire State Building, as reported by the Agence France Presse, will "honor the 60th Anniversary of communist China."
