    Remember that sports journalists are journalists first and then they talk sports. They are all pretty much lefties just like the rest of the media. And they do all walk in lockstep on the issues as you point out. Can somebody point me to one sports journalist that thinks that college athletes should NOT be paid?

    If done carefully, I could go along with some of this. The key is knowing when to stop. The biggest reason the triangulation with China and the Soviet Union ended badly is that we kept it going too long. I think the deals we made with China in the '70s were pretty defensible, because the Soviet Union was a bigger and more dangerous threat. However, instead of backing away from that after the fall of the USSR, we accelerated it to score some cheap labor in the 1990s and 2000s. That was the real screw-up, and it wasn't a partisan thing. Clinton and Bush both did it.

    If you remember Max Baucus?
    The ex-Senator and ex-Ambassador to China (whose wife was once arrested in DC for assault)
    Max Baucus is now a bought and paid for Chinese asset
    We have start pointing these people out

    In the last week, he gave four interviews to Beijing-run media comparing the Trump Adm's rhetoric on China with McCarthyism and Nazi Germany. Baucus spends his post-political life advising Chinese businesses.

    Max Baucus is not the only Obama-akilite to sell out to China
    Obama's former NSC director for CyberSecurity, Samir Jain, is now a lobbyist for HUAWEI
    I think these people should be exposed for who they are
    Even if you think there "is nothing wrong with it," I would argue the people have a right to know

    Kind of interesting

    “Once the coronavirus appeared, Swedish economists cautioned that a policy of restrictions, such as lockdowns, would impose enormous economic costs to society, and that it might be as bad as the disease itself. Swedes listened.”

    Any euro country using the Huawei virus (5G) has to be kicked out of NATO.

    Yeah, I think you can count Joe Biden in that group too.

    Now that the virus has cleared the streets and activists have been arrested to never be seen again, China has changed their laws so they can lower the boom on Hong Kong.
    I have no idea what the rest of the 21st century will look like, but the Chinese Commies destroying HK has to be one of the low points to date

    And after they take over Hong Kong, you know what comes next, Taiwan, and then the stuff hits the fan (unless maybe Biden is President).

    In D-Day, the first 6 waves of soldiers never got off the beach, it was the 7th wave that was finally able to establish a holding on the beach head and move inland. Democrats are more like the French except without the guns to drop.
