The police in Hong Kong are torturing protestors. See this video from a hospital… https://streamable.com/amp_player/s0b9l
These people are fighting for freedom and need our support (and for us to help evacuate them before they are exterminated by Xi Jumping).
Regulatory changes like this are horrifying. We are going to have hyperinflation and more banks taxpayers have to bailout soon if this is allowed to continue.
We could fix so many diseases and other problems with the hospitals if we just rolled back the insane privacy laws we have around healthcare.
I have been a Quickbooks Online user for years and the application is riddled with bugs and the support is horrific. You will spend a dozen hours a month on the phone with their support for the countless bugs in the software and no one will ever be able to help you.
I would rather do my books by hand in old school journals than use Quickbooks Online. Incredibly frustrating.
The United States badly needs to eliminate the income tax which hurts workers. Instead it should enact a wealth tax. raising revenue to run the government from a wealth tax rather than an income tax what encourage people to make sure they were getting high returns on their wealth rather than just sitting on cash. It would be very beneficial for everyone.
A much stronger review and firing process is absolutely necessary for judges.
Competition is hugely important… It keeps everyone honest. If my prices are too high or quality too low, customers just choose another provider.
Without competition, laziness / complacency / corruption always set in. This is the downfall with both socialism and with our patent system… There is no motivation to work harder or reduce prices.
The freedom loving protesters in Hong Kong are in deep trouble. The Chinese army has arrived on the scene, and history shows this can end in slaughter. The current leadership in China is basically a dictatorship that will respond extremely harshly to perceived threats.
Even if all the protesters went home today, China will still use facial recognition on the thousands of photos of the protesters from the early days, then will systematically hunt them down and purge them.
So what should be done?
We need to make a massive effort to evacuate Hong Kong of all those willing to leave and resettle them with green cards and citizenships in the United States and Canada and Japan and other willing countries.
Empty out cruise ships or even cargo ships and send them to Hong Kong and let everyone there know this is their last chance to flee.
As one of the last bastions of free people in the world, we have a strong ethical and moral obligation to help these freedom fighters. Taking no action or even worse, barring them entry is tantamount to murder. We need to be courageous and do the right thing and evacuate Hong Kong.
