Liu Xiaobo Detention: U.S. Calls For Release Of Nobel Laureate

Liu Xiaobo Detention: U.S. Calls For Release Of Nobel Laureate

Commented Dec 10, 2013 at 11:58:13 in World

“You are correct. What we need is fair trade, not free trade.

Take shoes for example. If it costs a US manufacturer $8.00 to produce a pair of shoes then cheaplabor shoes that are imported into the US should have a duty placed on them that equals an $8.00 cost of production.

Then the quality of the shoes would be a deciding factor for consumer purchase.

If the quality of the US shoes couldn't match that of the imports the US shoe makers would go out of business. If our quality was better, then less shoes would be imported.

That's a win-win situation for US consumers and workers.

The present trade rules are only benefitting the CEOs who sold out the US and shipped jobs overseas so they could put a few more millions of dollars in their greedy pockets.”

“There's a real nice family down the street from me.  Every year about this time they go all out for their yard man. They decorate their house all up and put up a big sign that says "Happy Birthday Jesus". I don't know what their religion is, if any, but it sure is nice to see them support the people who work for them. I wonder when the postal carrier's birthday is...”

“This sounds more like manslaughter than self defense.

The elderly man knocked on the shooter's door. He didn't try to enter the house, As long as the elderly man, or anyone for that matter, was outside the house the shooter had time to call the police. The shooter would certainly be within his rights to shoot someone who entered his house. But to go outside looking for a threat?

Na, that's manslaughter, at the least.”

“I don't know if Winston is guilty or not.

What I do know is that if it were the FSU janitor's son instead of it's quarterback the outcome would be different.

The son of the janitor would have been jailed. His bond would be set so high he could not get out of jail before his trial. He would be assigned a public defender who would pressure, dog and harass him into accepting a plea bargain, guilty or not.

Once again, we see how "justice" in America depends entirely on who you know and how much money you have.”

“Well put. I get slammed and sent links to this lame guy's video each time I express his lack of "funny-ness."

I saw him as a guest host for SNL a couple of years ago. He was walking through the audience, singing a lame song and appearing to be pissing on himself. This went on for about four or five minutes, but seemed like forever. The audience appeared to be dying of laughter. Really?!? That was funny?

“I've been a Steelers fan for more than 55 years.

I'm ashamed of Mike Tomlin. There is NO WAY his little "Squirrel Hill Shuffle" was anything but intentional.

There has been a lot of grumbling about the Steelers, under Tomlin, being an undisciplined football team. And that certainly shows in their play over the last few years.

What Tomlin did was bush league, low class and foolish. He should be heavily fined and suspended for at least eight games.

Should the Steelers lose a draft choice? I'm not prepared to go that far. But if the league is then let 'er rip.

The Steelers are the best team/organization in the NFL. Don't believe it? Get back to me when your team has made 8 Superbowls and won 6.

We don't need to cheat to win, Coach Tomlin.”
