Fight for Freedom, Stand with Hong Kong

Why so expensive?  Morey is general manager of the NBA’s Houston Rockets.  The NBA is big business in China.  Several NBA stars make big money in China.  Several NBA teams are currently in China playing exhibition games.

Suffice it to say, the government of China is not happy.  Sponsorships are being pulled, events are being cancelled, billboards are being taken down.  This could cost the league billions…unless the NBA bows low to the wishes of the communist government.

The poor NBA.  They have gone further than any other pro sports league in the US in allowing all employees – players and management – to speak out on social issues, politics, etc.

It seems “wokeness” is not something China wants to import from the United States.  The NBA has no good way out of this.  Maybe one: put a lid on players and management from commenting on social issues anywhere.  The players might go along, given how many hundreds of millions of dollars accrue to them via relationships in China.  That would really be funny.

It’s always funny until someone gets hurt.  Wokeness is funny when you are poking those who cannot fight back (hint: straight white Christian males).

But watching this self-inflicted circus from hell really is hilarious.

Bionic Mosquito
Why bionic mosquito? Some talking head on CNBC, when referring to Ron Paul, called him a “mosquito.” My reaction – if he is a “mosquito”, he is a pretty powerful one. Hence the name…. If there is one day a resurgence of freedom and liberty in the West, history will record that Ron Paul was the one individual most responsible for sparking the movement.
