Freedom Space Exploration is on the March!
I don’t want to be paranoid or to think that my right to protest would ever be taken away, so I’m going to try to put a positive spin on the whole unfortunate incident. Perhaps the White House was motivated by pure altruism: We’ve arrested her here so she won’t be arrested over there, see? One of China’s alleged human rights abuses, after all, is its harvesting of organs for transplant from its prison population. In that light, George done a good thing! Why, he practically saved that woman’s life!
Ever the statesman, Bush apologized to Hu for the outburst, but apparently his apology has upset some people. In all fairness, though, maybe Bush simply doesn’t know the reasons behind Wang’s protest. Heck, his administration doesn’t even know the difference between Taiwan and Mainland China—so cut him some f*#king slack, Christian Defense Coalition!
Seriously, though, something good did come from Hu’s visit: The US and China have agreed to cooperate on space exploration—probably because in space, no one can hear you dissent.
I hope that those of you who stop by this weekend will scroll down and take part in the olio poll-io. Have a great weekend. See you on Monday!
