Chinese investors have begun signing up to spend $500,000 each to help pay for a long-awaited connection between the Pennsylvania Turnpike and I-95.

In exchange, the investors hope to get permanent residency in the United States for themselves and their families.

Agents for the novel financing plan have been pitching the proposal in China since September, touting the project's financial stability and showcasing photos of Gov. Corbett and Turnpike Commission officials breaking ground for the construction in Bucks County.

"Guaranteed by U.S. Government, Class A+ Repayment Credit!" proclaimed the Chinese-language website promoting the investment last month. "A key expressway-connecting hub project in U.S.A.!"


- This is what a Republican immigration plan looks like. If the natives of this land had done this to the Pilgrims, Thanksgivings today would be a lot more frugal affair......

Is that an inter-dimensional map in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

- The plot here is about a man who pulls out a map and asks a woman to show him where he went wrong. Which classifies this film-short as ''fantasy.'' Pure fantasy.

****UPDATE**** - Apparently she got all the help she needed:

Wall Street Crooks Spent Billions To Silence Whistle-Blower; It Didn’t Work

The Young Turks * Published on Nov 17, 2014

“She tried to stay quiet, she really did. But after eight years of keeping a heavy secret, the day came when Alayne Fleischmann couldn't take it anymore.

"It was like watching an old lady get mugged on the street," she says. "I thought, 'I can't sit by any longer.'"

Fleischmann is a tall, thin, quick-witted securities lawyer in her late thirties, with long blond hair, pale-blue eyes and an infectious sense of humor that has survived some very tough times. She's had to struggle to find work despite some striking skills and qualifications, a common symptom of a not-so-common condition called being a whistle-blower.

Fleischmann is the central witness in one of the biggest cases of white-collar crime in American history, possessing secrets that JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon late last year paid $9 billion (not $13 billion as regularly reported – more on that later) to keep the public from hearing."* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

- I believe that the Attorney General has mistaken ''culture with sewerage.'' I think that the way you go at it Eric is, you start by cleaning your glasses so things won't look so diffuse. You can start with reading this article.

Then you start ''prosecuting the insulation'' and I swear you'll be surprised at how fast you start locking up those ''mis-cultured top executives who actually ordered the frauds to begin with.''

As Terence McKenna told us many years ago: ''Culture is not your friend.''

Drug Warrior Mitch McConnell Tied To Millions In Cocaine

The Young Turks * Published on Nov 17, 2014

"Before the Ping May, a rusty cargo vessel, could disembark from the port of Santa Marta en route to the Netherlands in late August, Colombian inspectors boarded the boat and made a discovery. Hidden in the ship’s chain locker, amidst its load of coal bound for Europe, were approximately 40 kilograms, or about ninety pounds, of cocaine. A Colombian Coast Guard official told The Nation that there is an ongoing investigation.

The seizure of the narcotics shipment in the Caribbean port occurred far away from Kentucky, the state in which Senator Mitch McConnell is now facing a career-defining election. But the Republican Senate minority leader has the closest of ties to the owner of the Ping May, the vessel containing the illicit materials: the Foremost Maritime Corporation, a firm founded and owned by McConnell’s in-laws, the Chao family.

Though Foremost has played a pivotal role in McConnell’s life, bestowing the senator with most of his personal wealth and generating thousands in donations to his campaign committees, the drug bust went unnoticed in Kentucky, where every bit of McConnell-related news has generated fodder for the campaign trail."* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.
