A few easy pieces
- The Daily Dish A-Team discusses the secrets of the Chinese political system (Author's italics and included link):
China's Secret Files describes in vivid detail how Li Ruihuan, a member of the Third Generation and a prominent liberal, was outmaneuvered in his effort to remain remain in power. Of course, Li was a "liberal" only by the standards of the CCP. He believed in the supremacy of the CCP, and in a broadly authoritarian political system. But because he was concerned first and foremost with Party corruption, he advocated "external checks" on Party members, including competitive elections up to the provincial level.Obviously this guy is the "Joe Lieberman" of the Chinese ruling party.
- Did you ever notice that the liberal media assumes that banning guns will eliminate gun crime, but that banning abortions will supposedly cause a spike in "back-alley" abortions?
