Well it means that somehow, impossibly, that Democrats will have found someone to run and lose in 2020 that was even worse than Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Well the DNC did pick Hillary Clinton and 3rd way Dems really do echo the DNC and want another "sensible moderate"....
Nevermind the fact that Hillary ran a "scripted, soulless campaign" those words came from the Obama camp if not President Obama himself.
To the haters who despise any criticism of Hillary.... Look it up. Or maybe Peter Baker a New York Times White House correspondent is just full of crap.

Will American corporations like Google or Disney put any pressure on China? Highly doubtful. In fact, Disney is altering its movies to appease the Chinese authorities.

Why would they do that? China is the worlds biggest market, and American corporations care about nothing but this quarters profits. Next quarter they will have already gotten their bonus and if it all blows up in their face then they will get fired and the next CEO deal with it.

So they can only lecture Americans about human rights and social justice then. When it comes to China ... oh we're only here for the money and we could care less about human rights.

Most of those companies would gladly sell Americans into slavery for the chance to add another billion customers. I doubt anyone here thinks that American corporations are moral or even slightly ethical.

One country, two systems promise is a joke. Good luck HK people. At least about 3 million of you "could" become UK citizens.
