On Labor Day our President honored workers by vilifying business. Boiler plate Marxist rhetoric. Nasty fat cats exploiting people–the Marxist are going to end all that. Obama is working hard for labor and the fat cat “special interests” talk about him like a dog.
Just a note on honoring workers in China.
Government worker Zhu Jihong was exhausted from working extra hours on a park project when he
fell to his death. Not from a bridge or a crane or anything like that. He fell off a toilet. Don’t ask me how but he suffered severe head injuries from the fall.
He died of his wounds two days later. Because he was working overtime, on a weekend, when he suffered the fatal fall, and given his impressive work record – the man is said to have juggled three jobs without any complaint – the local authorities honoured him posthumously for “dying a hero’s death while carrying out his duties”. Zhu was also hailed as a “model party member”.
He surely died doing his duty, but still the Shanghai Daily took exception to honoring Zhu under the circumstances. It’s not like the good old days when hero workers were the likes of “Iron Man Wang” who dug for oil with his bare hands.
Funny how someone worked to the point of exhaustion and death is heroic when the Communists are in charge.
In America capitalists can talk about the President like he’s a dog. In China the workers are treated like dogs. Our President likes one of those systems better than the other.
