    I understand we like to demonize the other, just like we used to demonize the Soviet Union and the right has to demonize Muslims.

    I lived in China for a number of years, and a lot of the people who get attacked for "stealing American jobs" are just trying to make a better life. Those people work ridiculous hours, 7 days a week, in conditions that the poorest American would never tolerate for pay that the poorest American would never accept.

    There's a Starbucks and a KFC/McDonalds on every block. People have the same goals and dreams. It's not some kind of Marxist anti-American agricultural collective.

    If they want to attack someone, they should attack Bain Capital and others for making a profit off of the backs of those people and hurting American workers in the process. But they can't do that because that's their base.

    When we stop putting leaders from the past up on pedestals and ignoring their flaws, we can start seeing our present leaders for what they really are.

      I have come to the belief that repugs only pay lip service to christianity. lies and other deeply disturbing and inhuman behaviour aside.
