The Morning Rant

"A while back, Google helped the People's Republic of China build a crappier version of the internet, one that does not have anything in it that would not offend the commie mandarins who run the joint. The Google suits made the decision that they would rather be paid a bunch of money from the PRC than to maintain the integrity of their search engine.

"By doing this, they enabled the mandarins to increase the efficiency of their totalitarian oppression of their own people. Which kind of makes a laughingstock of their "don't be evil" corporate slogan, but hey, this was just a business deal, nothing personal, I'm sure Google would say.

"So, by kowtowing to the PRC, the NBA really isn't doing anything that Google hasn't already done first. And, for that matter, the US Government, who has been outsourcing the national debt to the PRC for a number of years now.

"And it's sadly comical to see a SJW loudmouth like Steve Kerr, who has never been shy about offering his political opinions before, suddenly go all coy and demure when asked about China. It reminds me of, well, the bad old Cold War days when progressives did everything they could to condemn the United States while deflecting from, defending, and justifying whatever perfidy the USSR was doing at the time. And back then, the progressive rule was, America could do no right, and the Soviet Union could do no wrong. This rule applied not only to the USSR, but also Cuba, or Nicaragua, or whatever commie police state was en vogue.

"Then they'd get huffy when you questioned their patriotism.

"All in all, I like the idea of global capitalism, the free flow of goods and services across international boundaries, low or no tariffs or taxes, but there are still a few glitches that need to be ironed out."

I tried to rank the male celeb photos in order of degree of difficulty of recognition. When you post your guess, let me know which photo was the one that tipped you off. I'm always underestimating the Horde, so we'll see how this goes.
