While Hussein calls the Repubs badies for not agreeing that his porkulus bill is a stimulus bill and the Lame Stream Media wets in their pants from the tongue lashing, the European Canary is gasping for air.
9. One more thing. The World Economic Forum produces news that might be as significant as what is reported internationally. Take this item. On the main street of Davos, there is a bookstore with much material on Tibet. (Many Tibetans settled in Switzerland – it is the mountains, you know.) Accordingly, the lady running the store had books about Tibet in the shop window. She also displayed a Tibetan flag. The local police forced her to remove the flag and the books. Upon protest, Mrs. Merz, the owner, was allowed to put at least the books back. One hopes that the limo of Mr. Wen passes the place fast enough so as not to be offended by the offensive prayer books. Oh, yes! There is no legal basis for the police’ preventive kowtow before a tyranny that is assumed to be thin skinned. The flag removal expressed the fear of Peking and happened because, then and there, the police had more muscle than Mrs. Merz. We are left with another nice example of how constitutional rights are violated in order to please a dictatorship.
Think of the above.
"There is no legal basis...." There is a desire "to please a dictatorship."
And here I use to think the Swiss stood for something.
They obviously need a democracy stimulus package.
