"We Stop, They Kill!"
"China invests 9% of its GDP in infrastructure," she says in the commercial titled "Rebuild," which includes scenes of dour-looking construction workers. "America? We're at just 2.4%. We can do better."Yeah, let's make America's economy more like the state-run Chinese version. That should sell.
But even more to the point, my very successful businessman brother (a Democrat) told me a story last year about a colleague being China. He was consulting with a new potato chip factory outside the city of Bejing. When his young wife went to visit him, she was met at the airport by a driver and taken on the ride of her life.
There were brand new, gleaming highways alright. But no cars on them. They were all but empty of vehicles. There were used however, by scores of walking poverty-stricken peasants. During the trip, her driver actually hit one of them, a woman, knocking her to the pavement. He didn't stop but continued on at an even higher rate of speed. When the horrified wife told him he had to stop, the driver replied, "We stop, they kill."
Yeah, America needs to be more like China. Sheeesh!
