1. Who cares in management? "It's glorious to become rich." The Chinese stole that one, too.

2. OH PLEASE! American companies are SELLING core technology to China

General Electric (GE) plans to sell its aircraft electronics to Chinese companies, and if you don't have a problem with that, maybe you should. After all, China just flight-tested a prototype stealth fighter (pictured), it continues to build up its military -- and we can only hope it's not planning to expand its territory in ways that threaten the U.S.

But if China does decide to get aggressive with the U.S., GE will have provided it with the aircraft technology it will be using.

According to The New York Times, GE is signing a deal to sell avionics technology -- electronics that control an aircraft's basic in-flight operations -- to Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China (CACC), which aspires to build commercial and military aircraft. GE will do this through a joint venture with a Chinese company, Aviation Industry Corp. of China (Avic). Avic makes avionics for CACC and for China's military -- including its stealth fighter.

4. First to Japan, then to the "Asian Tigers", then to China

I guess India or Indonesia or Africa is next as a source of cheap goods.

5. Reality check: File for a US patent (public record) and WalMart will be selling the goods in a week.

 

The Chinese leech off of our patent filings and WalMart is all in favor of it. Remember the icesicle Christmas lights? The guy who invented it spent a lot of money to file for (and eventually get) a patent but by then it didn't matter because WalMart had their Chinese minions pumping them out by the hundreds of thousands. By the time a patent is approved, it is pretty much useless because the fad has worn off.

3. The outsourced jobs that I want back are the ones that went to Canada

If we had single payer health care in the USA they might never have left.

6. I think I play Civilization V too much. Real life is starting to mirror this game.

China and Iran signed a defensive pact, Venezuela denounced us, and the Chinese are stealing our technologies. Pass the butter.
