It appears communism is alive and well. Coming to a '5 year plan'-sponsored KolHoz near you.

Everyone who thinks it's really funny that Western leaders have convinced their masses that sending all of their jobs and technology here to a Communist country with no wage laws will improve their standard of living, stand up.

AnAnonymous's picture

But there is wage laws. And guess what? 'American' corporations were shown a few years ago to be the first infringers and paying under the minimal wage.

Everything to satisfy the 'american' middle class needs for consumption.

And you did it in a second! Banzai.  And said it all!

Now that, my friend, is talent! You are the greatest.

The label of communism is an anachronism in the world we now live in.

I'll tell you what is a load of bullshit. All those GE types who claim it is impossible for them to operate in socialist big government America. I'm very sorry to report they are the biggest lying fuckety fucks you will ever find. All that really concerns them is a cheap wage and the availability of goon squads. Paperwork and red tape is a minor nuisance to be handled by lawyers and accountants.

On top of it all, they constantly have to worry about the foreign corrupt practices act.

So tell us Jeff Immelt, why does GE love moving jobs to "Communist China"?

Also, they are there to block any innovative startup to come from behind.

williambanzai7's picture

These lawyers are actually doing something, unlike the ones that spend all their time drafting and billing reams of boilerplate SEC filings that never get read because they are written to be opaque.

JR's picture

Bullseye, Banzai.  Immelt can just as easily operate here. And Jeffrey starts with a pal in the White House.

williambanzai7's picture

As bad as it is in the US, it is just a load of nothing compared to all the bureaucracy and permitting you have to deal with to operate in China.

ur brilliant wb7! 

an absolute ray of sunshine spawning laughter in the dark & dismal world we live in.

I'm happy to be able to make people smile while exposing the rotten ugly truth. ;-)

This particular subject really irks me because I constantly listen to people who want to or already do business in China. It has absolutely nothing to do with escaping the socialist business constraints of operating the US.

It has everything to do with hunting for profit margins and low cost labor. I suppose China will eventually price itself out of certain segments and the business will migrate to SE Asia (for example Myanmar) and Africa...yes Africa.

Indonesia's economy apparently grew very nicely this past year and the Phillipines are once again drawing commercial attention. Thailand is where Japan Inc prefers to operate. These are jobs that will never ever migrate back to the US and it has nothing to do with our political system.

No, Ben would have ordered golden curtains --- purely, of course, out of tradition.

hahah! NO, its the RNC. With all the their thuggish tactics and rule changing, it's most definitely the RNC or Rupert Murdoch's Christmas party for the Fox propagandists. See all the red?? ;)

You should move to Cali! It's gonna be awesome here in a few years after the democratic Party gets done. Plus they will need people as the rich and small business owners leave in droves for Texas.

Didn't know how many fox 'news' viewers perused the comment section of ZH. Silly person, the Dems and Reps are the same party, wake up!

Mr Lennon Hendrix's picture

They are better off not knowing the Neo-Cons are Trotskyites.  This way they can vote for Romney over Obama because, you know.....because.

malalingua's picture

Yep. I like to call them Mittiots or Breitbartarians, either way they are destroying this country. Honestly, have been on ZH for a couple of years and didn't know the Fox bunch would read stuff here, you'd think the articles posted would challenge their core beliefs to the point they would have to go back over to the fox comment section and get amped up on war, you know.

It's funny, at 1st glance the hammer-sickle looked a bit like the EU's icon.

Anyway, it's clear from the picture that the right side of the isle has no respect for the enlightened party on the left side of the isle, or the other way, or something.

The Romulans have invaded the neutral zone. Commander, I demand we intercept!

Technically you enter the neutral zone. Try invading the Mississippi sometime.

I think you meant to write "The Romneyans have invaded the neural dead zone."

So they finally decided to be honest, and redecorated the US House of Representatives accordingly?

No, that's the state capitol in Sacramento.

But thanks for playing! ;-)

SAN FRANCISCO — California’s Democrats were poised on Friday to gain a two-thirds supermajority in the State Legislature, an achievement that would give them the power to raise taxes unilaterally and could potentially ease the gridlock in a state known for its fiscal chaos.


A supermajority in Sacramento — last held in 1933 by the Republicans — would effectively bring one-party rule to the nation’s largest state, where Democrats hold all statewide offices and where the Republican Party’s declining fortunes have been hastened by a recent nonpartisan redistricting.


Democrats, as expected, quickly secured a supermajority in the State Senate on Tuesday. But the unexpected possibility of adding a supermajority in the Assembly heightened the Democrats’ euphoria after Tuesday’s election, in which Gov. Jerry Brown’s $6 billion tax initiative, Proposition 30, scored a resounding victory despite fierce opposition from inside and outside the state.
